barry_11_bmp_jpgcopyWhat? What is this? It’s Barry Burton, the latest character to join Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. The S.T.A.R.S. survivor packs a sniper rifle and his trusty magnum. He’s ready to punch Majini and kick Los Ganados to the ground.


He joins previously announced characters: Chris Redfield, Jack Krauser, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Claire Redfield, and Rebecca Chambers. That would make Barry the eighth playable character. According to the ESRB, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D the Nintendo 3DS game has "eight protagonists."


Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D comes out on June 28 in North America.

     Am I the only one that thinks he looks kinda weird?

    • Looks like Resident Evil Remake Barry to me.

      They didn’t quite hulk him up like they did with with Chris, so I think it’s more of a “looks weird in the context of this game” thing.

      • lostinblue

        Yeah, that should be a factor, but I dunno, he looks worse to me than other characters… In some close up pictures he looks worse than a Ganados in RE4 whereas other characters seemed to be closer to how Leon looked in RE4.

        And some of his joints seem to move weird… I mean look at his neck in the last picture.

        Is that really the final character model for him? How far along is the game now?

  • Does that mean Leon Kennedy is not in the game? 

  • Aiddon

    Ah, Barry, even if Leon in this game the cast still has Krauser and Hunk

  • dragoon_slayer12

    i called it too a while back, that the last 2 would be rebecca and barry…. hopefully there will be downloadable content. i would like a annual update with new characters and levels (and zombies, no more plagas please)

  • O..Ohh.. Oh my god. *starts crying* I never thought I’d see you again! I just… It’s really you!

    • I…I…just know this is your fault. Somehow. What have you done?! 

      • Whoops. This was a double post. But in reply to Malek, it didn’t turn out too well for the witch in Hansel and Gretal. So I wouldn’t dare push kids into anything.

      • Everyone knows that a child’s wish is the most powerful thing in the world. That’s where magical girls come from!

        So I just kidnapped a bunch of kids, and made them wish for Barry.

        • malek86

          Whew, that’s not so bad.

          For a moment, I thought you had shoved them into a wish machine’s nuclear reactor core.

  • lightningrook

    If he doesn’t spout sandwich-related one-liners on a regular basis, I will be very disappointed.

  • PrinceHeir

     i knew it Ishaan :P

    now i can have my Jill and Barry Sandwich combo :D

    the thing i hated about RE5 Gold Edition is that Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion are treated as a separate mode. meaning i can’t team up with characters from old Mercenaries like Wesker and Jill into Mercenaries Reunion characters like Barry and Rebecca.

    lazy capcom :P

    as for characters like Leon, Ada, Billy, and maybe Carlos.

    DLC my friend :D that’s how capcom rolls ^^

    • *weeps relentlessly* 

      • Guest

        *joins you in weeping*

        • I’m sorry for everything I said in defense of the characters. ;_; 

      • PrinceHeir


    • BadenBadenPrinny

      *Does not miss Leon. Ada on the other hand…….*

  • Guest

    No Leon no buy


    • Exkaiser

       Maybe if Leon was a part of STARS he’d be in the game.

      • But, wasn’t it made clear he was just fresh meat when he was first introduced?

  •  Isn’t he the guy that said the master of unlocking?

    • And so many other things! Even if you haven’t played the first RE, look it up. It’s beautiful.

  • malek86

    Can’t wait to use Barry. I hear he’s reeeaally powerful, especially against zombies!

    • gatotsu911

      Damn it, you beat me to it!!

    • It’s too bad his weapon is only powerful against living things. :<

    • Robin Schwab

      Yeah, like Bud Spencer.

  • Klarktastic


  •  What?! Where is Leon?!

    • He’s busy getting hunted in Raccoon City. He’ll get back to you.

  • Souji Tendou

    As I thought. So… no more hidden characters then?
    Capcom, you made Leon fans cry you know…

  • “According to the ESRB, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D the Nintendo 3DS game has “eight protagonists.”

    Wesker is an “antagonists”, Leon is a good guy so yeah, it’s still possible… (Hope so…)

    • Yeah, this is exactly what went through my mind as well…my hopeful mind.
      My favs Rebecca so i really shouldnt be complaining….but it does seem like every game Chris is in, Leon has no chance. :<
      and if i recall correctly, Jack wasnt the greatest of guys either. so come on, at least one more person Capcom…Leon, Ada, Billy…please?? lol

  • gatotsu911

    BUT BARRY! Is that weapon REALLY POWERFUL – especially against LIVING THINGS?

  • I reckon this is a nice choice. His signature magnum is a good weapon.

  •  “Where is Barry!? HAS ANYONE SEEN BARRY!?”
