RE The Mercenaries 3D: Shots & Video

Here's a new trailer, some screenshots and additional information for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. The game will include a playable demo of Resident Evil Revelations.

Press Release

For the first time Resident Evil®: The Mercenaries 3D delivers the intense Mercenaries gameplay experience on a handheld console.

Featuring re-mastered stages from Resident Evil® 4 and Resident Evil® 5, it’s a race against time as players try to defeat as many enemies as possible before the countdown reaches zero. The fast-paced, combat intensive action of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is available both as a solo experience or gamers across the world can team up and enjoy two-player co-op via network play.

Gamers will have the opportunity to tackle the game’s missions with legendary Resident Evil® characters from past and present and face off against some of the most terrifying enemies, such as the Executioner and Popo Karimu. Playable characters include Chris Redfi eld, Krauser, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker and, making her debut in a Mercenaries game, Claire Redfield.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D includes the addition of an all new Skill Slot feature. Players are able to fi ll three skill slots from a selection of 30 skills including improvements to weapons performance, reload speed or melee abilities and customize characters to best suit their style of play.

While the gameplay will be familiar to those who have previously played Mercenaries, changes have been implemented to take advantage of the new hardware, most notably transforming the stages and characters to full 3D plus the ability for players to move and shoot and the addition of touch screen functionality to switch weapons on the fly.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will also include a playable demo of the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS title, Resident Evil® Revelations.

Take control of Jill Valentine and experience the horror to come in this all new Resident Evil title.

The graphics are so good.

Love the mercenaries, but don't love the fact they ask full price for this.

Still a day 1 buy. (need that demo)

It may just be on my end but there seems to be a problem with video from 00:22 - 00:46.
The sound keeps playing but the video is stalled.

Looks like a really nice game though.

Darn you 3DS! Why must you cost so much?

    Melmoth @GriftGFX: yea, viewport performance in maya has improved the last year or so on geforce cards, it used to be hamstrung. (57 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker FFXV has actually gone gold, wow. New footage too and the difference from the two demos is crazy: [url] (58 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But it's a pretty cool device. And the dial is really cool. If I could use that on my Cintiq I'd buy one in a heartbeat. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wouldn't expect workstation performance out of any all-in-one. And I hate the idea of piggybacking computation to monitors. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Penny Arcade has some good impressions of Surface Studio up: [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That.. totally depends on the software. Maya's viewport performance is pretty good on GeForce chips. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (2 Hours ago)
