Capcom On Resident Evil Mercenaries Game For Consoles: “Let’s Talk Next Week”

Resident Evil: Revelations, originally a 3DS game, is headed to the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U this year. For the console versions of Revelations, Capcom have given the game a visual upgrade and and a few additional features, which you can read about here.


Prior to Revelations, however, Capcom released another Resident Evil title for the 3DS—Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. This was a standalone game consisting of just the series’ Mercenaries mode, featuring maps from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. A similar game has not been announced for consoles.


Over on the Capcom forums, a user made a request for a standalone Resident Evil Mercenaries game to be released for home consoles, and Capcom’s Senior Vice-President, Christian Svensson, replied to his request.


“Understood on the request,” Svensson posted. “Let’s talk next week on this topic.” He added: “The other thing you should look forward to is  trying out the extremely expanded Raid Mode (details to come in the coming months) in RE: Revelations. I find it scratches a LOT of the same itches.”

    If they make a standalone Mercenaries game from the 3DS to the console like Revelations did…
    Can they make some changes like I dunno put Leon and Ada in the game like what we always wanted from before?

    • Solomon_Kano

      Better than that, I’d hope they just make a completely new Mercs game for consoles. Lots of extra stuff they could do if they made one from the ground up on consoles.

      • Visa Vang

        Like a full roster of all known official RE characters to date and map mechanics.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Exactly. And even more on the gameplay front. Not to mention all the different visual touches they could add on console.

          • Tails the Foxhound

            I say they go all out a make Mercenaries an official side universe with all named characters alive and it’s own plot separate from the main series.

            Is it wrong of me to want them to add in Alice, from the movies, as a character in the Mercenaries game/modes?

  • Blazkn

    For the 50 bucks, they should just pack it together with Revelations…

  • Godman

    Definitely getting Revelations day one, and if Mercenaries can be considered a part of Raid mode they should just toss it in as well

  • why the hell should they release Mercenaries as standalone? who would wanna pay for a rip off game?
    it’s like releasing Agent Hunt mode (RE6) as a standalone game.

    the RE Mercenaries should be included with Revelations!
