Chris And Claire Team Up For Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Commercials


Capcom have started to air TV commercials for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D in Japan. Here’s a look:



Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D has a feature new to the series — the ability to move and shoot at the same time. Holding down the L and R buttons on the 3DS takes you into first-person mode (you can see this at the start of the video) and you can move while firing. However, you can’t aim; your gun is locked in place while moving.


Capcom will release The Mercenaries 3D in June. Japan gets the game on June 2nd, and the U.S. a few weeks later on June 28th. We don’t have a concrete release date for Europe yet; Nintendo will be handling distribution of the game in that territory.
