All Articles: Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
Welcome to another week of Nintendo downloads. Leading off this week is the awesomely titled Kersploosh! Nintendo’s “throwing stuff down a well” sim is available to download now from the 3DS eShop. And for you Pokemon fans out there, a demo of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is now available as well.
Four additional games have been added to the 3DS eShop today including Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, a multiplayer arena fighter; 3D; ATV Wild Ride 3D, an offroad racer; Wrecking Crew, the NES classic; and Nano Assault EX, a space shooter.
Finally, a new NeoGeo game will be available on the Wii Shop Channel’s Virtual Console today: The King of Fighters ’98.
You can find more information on all of these titles after the break. (more…)
With Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D now available in stores, some disturbing facts about the game cartridge are coming to light. It seems that Capcom has rigged the game with a feature they call “Forever Saves.” A “Forever Save” cannot be erased or reset and will remain with the game permanently. It’s also causing some problems for game retailer GameStop and rental-by-mail company Gamefly.
Gamefly has confirmed they will not be offering Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D for rent. Meanwhile, GameStop managers have begun to inform gamers that they will not accept the game as a trade-in. However, they will continue to sell new copies of the title (insert “Oh, the irony!” comment here).
A Capcom representative told Destructoid that the “Forever Saves” were not implemented to deter used sales, but he didn’t really have an explanation for why the feature was included:
In Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, all mission progress is saved directly to the Nintendo 3DS cartridge, where it cannot be reset. The nature of the game invites high levels of replayability in order to improve mission scores. In addition, this feature does not remove any content available for users. Secondhand game sales were not a factor in this development decision, so we hope that all our consumers will be able to enjoy the entirety of the survival-action experiences that the game does offer.
Something tells me the “Forever Save” is an experiment that won’t be repeated.
The month of June comes to an end with a bunch of new sequels and a new fitness game that will turn your mom into an ultimate fighter. Take that Wii Fit! But I’m sure you want specifics, so here we go:
- Capcom is bringing an expanded version of popular Mercenaries minigame to the 3DS in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.
- The publisher is also expanding the latest Street Fighter game again with Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (PS3, Xbox 360).
- Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei merged two of their favorite franchises a third time in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 (PS3, Xbox 360).
- Nintendo brings the popular Mystery Case Files series to the console world for the first time in Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident (Wii).
- And finally, THQ wants to turn your exercise regiment into an extreme sport with UFC Personal Trainer (PS3, Xbox 360).
Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Capcom is resurrecting a ton of games for the 15th anniversary of the Resident Evil series. Not only that, but the publisher is injecting some new blood into the series with a pair of original games. And they want to get that blood pumping with the new trailer above that showcases all of these titles.
First up there’s Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, a multiplayer 3DS game based on the “Mercenaries” mode found in previous games in the series. And speaking of previous games in the series, the trailer also includes another look at the PSN/XBLA HD versions of Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 4.
Capcom plans to bring out the new stuff later in the year including the return of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Revelations (also for the 3DS). And capping the celebration is a return to the RE2/RE3 era in the brand new Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (which is coming to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360).
That is a lot of Resident Evil and this is a pretty neat trailer.
With the 3DS now in stores, Capcom has some exciting news for the handheld’s new owners concerning the Resident Evil series. According to the publisher, when Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D ships to stores on July 6, it’ll include a demo of the second game in the series planned for the 3DS, Resident Evil Revelations.
“Set on board an ocean liner, the demo lets players take control of one of the full game’s characters, Jill Valentine, as she explores the ship’s dark interior, killing any mysterious creatures that emerge from the shadows.”
That’s all we know for now, but Capcom has promised to reveal more about Revelations at this year’s E3 expo, which will be head in Los Angeles from June 7 through the 9th.
Many fans at PAX East were disappointed to find that the Chibiterasu special edition plushies sold out the first day. But what they weren’t disappointed about was the fact that Capcom’s 3DS lines were far shorter than those across the show floor at Nintendo. Mike Gutierrez and Nicole Kline got to check out Okamiden, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition. (more…)
The launch of the 3DS is less than three weeks away and Nintendo plans to woo the public with some big playable demos at this weekend’s PAX East event. The console maker plans to showcase playable demo stations for six launch day titles:
- Dead or Alive Dimensions
- Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
- Nintendogs + Cats
- Pilotwings Resort
- Steel Diver
- Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
That lineup is great and all, but Nintendo is also pulling out the big guns with playable versions of Kid Icarus: Uprising, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Capcom’s Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.
If you’re in the Boston area, I’d suggest getting in line now.
