New Trailer for Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D

Capcom has released a new trailer for the upcoming 3DS game, Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D.  This trailer shows a lot more action than the first one and announces some new features.

The game is not like other Resident Evil games, it has no story.  The only purpose of this game is killing and surviving.  The idea comes from the Mercenaries mini-game that is unlocked after completing the 4th and 5th Resident Evil games.  The aim of the mini-game is to kill as many ‘zombies’ as you can before the time runs out.  Mercenaries was well received by fans and now it’s time for it to get its own game.

The game mainly uses the levels from the Mercenaries mini-game.  However, new features have been added to make the game more fast paced.  These include; being able to walk and shoot and being able to change weapons and use items with one touch.  The game makes use of the bottom touch screen, allowing players to heal and use other items by pressing the screen.

Players will also be able to upgrade their characters ‘skills’, for example; how resistant they are to instant kill attacks.  So far the playable characters are; Chris Redfield, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Jack Krauser and Claire Redfield.  It is unclear whether or not more will be introduced.

The game will hit shelves sometime this summer; an exact date has yet to be released.  The game features online and offline modes, a tutorial  mode and contains a playable demo for Resident Evil: Revelations.

What do you think?  Is this game just a waste of time?  Does 3D make everything better?  Which are you more excited about Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D or Resident Evil: Revelations?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Check out the trailer and don’t forget to subscribe.

    I think the game looks good and it has good graphics. The list of playable characters seems great so far. I think it would be better if it was on playstation though because the 3DS has a smaller screen and that would probably annoy me 🙂
