Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D to Ship with Revelations Demo


So, the Nintendo 3DS era has officially begun. Did you get one yet? Personally, I decided to hold off because the current game lineup is the weakest I can remember for a console launch, with all the ‘killer app’ games on hold until summertime or later.

Two of those potential killer apps are both from Capcom and are both Resident Evils. Of course I’m talking abut The Mercenaries 3D and Revelations here, the two of which will come bundled together…sort of.

When Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D launches in the “coming months,” it will ship with a playable demo of Resident Evil Revelations, an all-new chapter in the survival horror series created specifically for the 3DS. In the demo, you will get to play as Jill Valentine and explore an ocean liner at sea on a dark and rainy night, admiring the impressive graphics along the way.

Neither full game has a firm release date yet, although the The Mercenaries 3D, a collection of Mercenaries missions from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, is expected to be out over the summer, which means Revelations is likely to follow during the holiday season (or possibly early 2012 if it gets delayed out of the holiday rush like a lot of games these days). The sooner the better of course, because the 3DS needs some games!
