Breaking out one of the favorite modes in Capcom's horror survival series into its own intense game experience, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D delivers relentless action set in the Resident Evil universe with players competing against the clock to defeat as many enemies as possible in a set time.
Featuring Mercenaries missions from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 — now fully realized in stunning 3D — Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D adds brand new modes and well known characters from the series to enrich and extend the Mercenaries experience. Resident Evil stars like Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, Hunk, and Krauser all battle evil in intense shooting combat. Furthermore, the title takes advantage of the WiFi connectivity of the Nintendo 3DS, allowing players from around the world to join forces in co-op gameplay, regardless of location.
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. These include Chris Redfield, Krauser, Hunk and, making her debut in a Mercenaries game, Claire Redfield.
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 the 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.
