Resident Evil: The Mercenaries announced for 3DS

3:10 AM on 09.29.2010 // Jonathan Holmes

Wait, what? Another Resident Evil game is coming to the 3DS? Is that some sort of record for an unreleased console? I think it might be.

Well, to be fair, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries wont be totally new. From the sounds of it, the game will feature scenarios, characters, and gameplay from the Mercenaries modes found in Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, but with new online co-op and competitive modes. That's cool with me. The Mercenaries was easily my favorite part of Resident Evil 5. As for Resident Evil 4, I loved the main campaign, but I definitely logged in a lot more total hours with its Mercenaries bonus content. To get all that on the go, in 3D, with online play to boot? That may just end my productivity for life.

Sadly there's no mention of the Mercenaries mode that started it all; the one from Resident Evil 3. Hopefully we'll get some of that as well. I'd love to see Carlos and Nikolai get back in the action. They could be playable characters in the Resident Evil 4 and 5 modes, as the official press release does tout "brand new modes and well known characters from the series to enrich and extend the Mercenaries experience". Could the old "dodge the dog on top of the dumpster" trick make a comeback as well?
