Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Has Eight Protagonists, Plenty More Zombies

The ESRB leaked an interesting detail about Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. While describing splattering blood and cries of pain, the rating board mentioned the Nintendo 3DS game has eight "protagonists".


Capcom announced six playable characters for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D thus far: Albert Wesker, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, Hunk, Jack Krauser, and Jill Valentine.


If Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D has eight protagonists that sounds Capcom has at least two more characters to announce. Hmm… I wonder which two characters will make the cut.

Read more stories about & on Siliconera.

  • It will be a sad day if Leon doesn’t make the cut, because I plan to play as him and him alone. But if I had to guess…Leon and…Sheva?

  • dragoon_slayer12

    most likely sheva and rebeca cuz barry never gets love.

    the line up is great, but i would include billy cohen, ada, the spanish guy from 4, barry, and nicolai (loved him, hated carlos)

  • doubleO7

    I’d like to see Leon and Ada.

  • Leon and…


  • Rebecca was seen playable in some video already so I’m guessing her.

  • Lordphantomhive

    Rebecca Chambers was confirm too, so I guessing the last slot is Leon.

  • Can Barry be a secret character? Please, please, please?

    (It’s probably going to be Leon and Rebecca.)

  • eilegz

    i mean only 8? seriously if this its the RETAIL Crossover Mercenaries between all RE universe it should be more characters.

    But then capcom like to charge for characters via dlc and fans will pay it =/

  • This still seems more and more just like an extra mode instead of a stand-alone game. I mean, Revelations, I can totally see people being excited for, but this? This seems like it should be a mode available after you beat Revelations. Maybe I’m just used to it being an extra mode, like it was in every RE since RE3, but I wish someone could explain to me why this is a worthwhile purchase, when the more I hear about it, the more it seems like it should just be part of the other RE game for the 3DS.

      Come on. It’s Capcom. What do you expect?

  • Aiddon

    probably Ada and Leon.

  • Guest

    I bet Leon won’t be in and it’ll be Rebecca and Barry due to Capcom’s unwritten “No Leon and Chris in the same game” stupid rule.

  • xflame10

    There are videos announced on youtube the next character is rebecca chambers capcom was trying to remove the videos though, the last one will have to be leon!

  • xflame10

    the next character is rebecca chambers, there are vids on youtube and yes they are from mercenaries 3d, capcom for wahatever reason has blocked some of them. The last char has to be leon!

  • cmurph666

    Too bad they’re not zombies of the walking dead kind or I’d be all over this.

  • Forrest Speyer and Joseph Frost, the RE1 victims… as the new Boss Characters. Rebbecca and Leon are the probable characters that are left on that list!

    I do hope Barry Burton becomes a DLC character for this game! We need him and his powerful weapon that works especially well on living things!

  • doomspeller10

    Sherry and Ashley Graham, an extreme kind of challenge. But Nemesis and Tyrant would be awesome as well.

  • Well, duh. Are people actually thinking that they could leave Leon out? After all these RE4 for iPhone, HD PS3, Atari, GBC etc. ports there is NO way that Leon is not in.

  • kupomogli

    Being that this is Capcom, there are probably more than eight characters already. Eight that are going to be in game from the start, the rest as either, knowing Capcom’s tactics, unlock codes or prerelease DLC.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there weren’t extra locations already premade to be sold as DLC in the future as well. Or maybe Capcom will wait about a year and sell Mercenaries 3D 2 with 10 characters and maybe a few more areas.

    I bet that Mercenaries 3D doesn’t include versus. You’ll either have to purchase Mercenaries 3D 2 or additional DLC.

  • vadde939

    I hope those last two are Leon and Ada but I’m guessing they’ll be Rebecca and Barry.

  • PrinceHeir

    too bad someone saw Rebecca in a demo play in a booth

    im guessing the other one is Barry since they already have a model for him

    *sigh i was expecting Leon, Ada, Billy, and Carlos to show up, heck why not other obscure characters from RE Outbreak and Gun Survivor or Dead Aim?

    they should definitely make a RE Outbreak that features other characters besides the known ones.

    the RE Universe is soo big, kinda wish they expanded them more :P

    You know seeing this post reminds me of something, the US box for this game is awful….why does Japan always get the cooler designs? Especially for this its not like a bunch of people holding guns would not appeal for the Western market. Oh well, I hope one of these is Tofu from RE2, lol but it wont be. I also wish there was a “classic” skin option you could apply to the enemies, so I could you know fight Zombies in a RE game again.

  • xflame10

    sorry for the double post.

  • Souji Tendou

    Hope one of the two is Leon, cause his fans wants him badly.

  • They will most likely be more then a total of nine characters they just dont want you to know yet like sheva and josh. I hope Excella is in it
