More info on Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D was released today by Capcom! A press release was sent out giving a general gameplay overview and new features.
For the first time Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D delivers the intense Mercenaries gameplay experience on a handheld console. Featuring re-mastered stages from Resident Evil™ 4 and Resident Evil™ 5, it’s a race against time as players try to defeat as many enemies as possible before the countdown reaches zero. The fast-paced, combat intensive action of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is available both as a solo experience or gamers across the world can team up and enjoy two-player co-op via network play.

Playable characters include Chris Redfield, Krauser, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker and, making her debut in a Mercenaries game, Claire Redfield.
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D includes the addition of an all new Skill Slot feature. Players are able to fi ll three skill slots from a selection of 30 skills including improvements to weapons performance, reload speed or melee abilities and customise characters to best suit their style of play.
