Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D Character Trailer

Shooting zombies and Bio Organic Weapons will be made portable soon with Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. What better way to get excited about it than with a handy character trailer showing off the game’s roster?

For those not in the know, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will be one of two Resident Evil games that will be making an appearance on the Nintendo 3DS – the second being Resident Evil: Revelations.

Both games will be taking individual aspects of the RE series, with one continuing the survival-horror and narrative elements of the series with the other expanding on the popular Mercenaries mini-game that first made an appearance in Resident Evil 3.

There’s already been a few trailers out for Capcom‘s zombie shooting gallery, including one that has depicted staple characters of the series, Jill and Wesker, but this latest trailer delivers the final line-up of the game’s cast. While the list is impressive, it’s a bit saddening that Leon S. Kennedy isn’t involved in it – but his adventures will be touched upon in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. In addition, the mini-bosses that players will encounter throughout the gameplay will be selected from Resident Evil 4 and 5, with a few recognizable faces and maybe even one or two new ones.

Immediately noticeable in this latest trailer is how great the 3DS graphics look – though this isn’t entirely surprising. Our hands-on from GDC 2011 complimented the graphics, so without much doubt, The Mercenaries 3D will be one of the games to beat in the graphics department.

There’s a beauty about Mercenaries that works so well. It takes an “easy to learn, hard to master” approach, challenging players to achieve the highest score possible. However, there are a few characters, namely Wesker, who (in past installments) can dominate Mercenaries without much effort – but where’s the fun in that?

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will be releasing for the Nintendo 3DS in Summer 2011.
