Dead or Alive: Dimensions, Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D Headed To Japanese eShop


More third-party retail games are headed to the Nintendo eShop in Japan. Tecmo Koei announced this week that Dead or Alive: Dimensions will be made available on the eShop starting today, December 6th, for 5,400 yen. (The retail version was originally launched at 6,090 yen.)


Meanwhile, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is headed to the Nintendo eShop in Japan as well. This one is actually pretty cheap—Capcom are only charging 2,600 yen for the download version, which will be released on December 27th.


Prior to its eShop release, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will also see a budget re-release at retail. A “Best Price” version of the game will be released on December 13th for 2,990 yen.


The Best Price re-release of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will not include the Resident Evil: Revelations pilot demo that was made available with the original version. Additionally, Capcom have also addressed the issue of not being able to delete save data in the re-release.
