Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games today announced that the Mega Man Legends 3 Project and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D are in development for the Nintendo 3DS platform.

Indeed, fans will have an opportunity to be part of the development process like never before as they interact directly with the team. ‘We have wanted to create a new instalment in this series for a number of years,’ commented the title’s Executive Producer, Keiji Inafune. ‘And it is great that we now have the opportunity to bring this title to the Nintendo 3DS.’ Further details of this project will be revealed at next month’s New York Comic-Con.

Totally pumped for Mercs. My favorite part of both games, now with online co-op (well, atleast that's new for the RE4 missions) and 3D. I never think I can be more in love with Nintendo and Capcom, but they always find ways to prove me wrong.

I think that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will work really well on the portable 3DS, because the fast, arcade style gameplay almost plays like 'Resi: The Shooting Mini Game', so it will be perfect for a quick blast on the train.

Well, not that I needed to have another reason to get a 3DS but if I did, HOLY CRAP MEGA MAN LEGENDS 3 WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

NEW YORK COMIC-CON? Mega Man Legends 3? RE: The Mercenaries?

Finally, something cool comes my way!



Terra said:

So, is this a different game to the previous Resi Evil title we saw for the 3DS?



Stuffgamer1 said:

@mjc: I couldn't have said it better myself.

Not that I ever expected it to be on 3DS (was kind of thinking PS3), but what the heck, a new Mega Man Legends is a new Mega Man Legends! Now, they just need to re-release and/or remake the first two (and the Misadventures of Tron Bonne, of course)...



Terra said:

Cool. I'm not much of an RE fan but just wanted to clear that up, thanks



WaveBoy said:

I'm thrilled for RE Revalations and Mega Man Legends 3, but for some reason I'm just all that pumped for RE Mercanaries 3D



SilverBaretta said:

Oh my gawd. It happened. A Mega Man Legends 3 is going to be made. And it's on a Nintendo system. And an entire game dedicated to the RE Mercs game? Sign me up!



MasterGraveheart said:

Mega Man Legends 3? I may be in the minority on this, but ALL RIGHT!

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, eh? Sounds good. I hope they still come out with Resident Evil Revelations. That looked great.



motang said:

So these were the two unannounced games Capcom hinted at yesterday. RE looks awesome!



x10power said:

OMG Megaman Legends 3 finally after years and years of waiting for the 3rd game after I beat the first two games in the series so many times I can finally do the same with the 3rd game in the series.



NassaDane said:

oh my god a mercenaries game all by its self? If Mikiami was dead he would be rolling in his grave. Capcom stop destroying RE.



MeloMan said:

I hope so Otaku... I swear, I haven't had a piece of the MML pie YET in my life. C'mon w/ Mega Man 64 on VC Capcom.



PSICOffee said:

I think this means that Mega Man 64 will be released as Mega Man Legends on the 3DS VC (or maybe not, because Sony might have something to say about a PSone game on their rival handheld first) and that Mega Man Legends 2 (I dont know if it got a release on the 64) will hopefully come as well. I've been waiting for a MML3 for a decade now. My brother is gonna be really excited to hear about this.
