Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D To Include Resident Evil: Revelations Demo

If you were thinking of grabbing Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D but weren’t quite sure if it was for you, there might be a little more incentive to pick it up now. Capcom have announced that the multiplayer game will include a demo version of Resident Evil: Revelations.


If you haven’t kept up with news of that game, Resident Evil: Revelations is Capcom’s other Resident Evil title for the 3DS, and unlike Mercenaries, appears to be a singleplayer affair starring Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. Story-wise, the game occurs prior to Resident Evil 5.


While Revelations takes place from a behind-the-shoulder view like Resident Evil 4, Capcom say the game will feel more like the scarier Resident Evil games on the PS One, rather than the more recent action-oriented titles. If you need to get caught up, you can read up on our hands-on impressions of Resident Evil: Revelations from Nintendo World in January, and a few additional details from Capcom’s panel at the same event.


There’s also the Resident Evil: Revelations tag, which you can use to look up screenshots and read about the technology that the game is built on.


In Japan, Capcom have the game scheduled for a June 2nd release, but in the U.S. and Europe, an official release date hasn’t been announced.

  • Oh that extra incentive is really getting me interested in it! Cant wait to try out revelations.

    I was debating getting Mercs 3D but this might just push it over the edge, still they need to fix the controls first from what I have read.

    How ironic!. Yesterday I was arguing with friends about how Re: Mercenaries should have been included in Re: Revelations as an extra.

    So everything has come full circle: The extra mini game with a full retail release is including a mini version of the full game it used to come with.

    I’m not sure whether to say that Capcom is being generous or desperate here.

    Is there an unwritten rule by Capcom to not have Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy in the same game?
