Plenty of Action in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Trailer

Looks pretty faithful to past mercenary instalments
Capcom currently has two Resident Evil titles in development for the 3DS, and with one nearing completion sooner than the other, it's time to see what the trailer for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D has in store for us.
Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D is a handheld re-mastered collection of stages from the Mercenaries portions of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The stages have been re-worked and gamers once again are in a race against time as they defeat as many oncoming enemies as they can before the timer runs out. Players will be able to play on their own, or they can play team up with others around the world via a two-player cooperative mode.
Characters include Chris Redfield, his sister Claire Redfield ― her first outing in a mercenaries game, Krauser, and the familiar yet unidentifiable Hunk. Players familiar with this branch of the Resident Evil games will be interested to know that with this 3DS entry, gamers will now be able to move and shoot, and the 3DS touchscreen will allow the switching of weapons to be as speedy as possible.
We went hands-on with Mercenaries 3D last week at Nintendo's 3DS reveal events in New York City and Amsterdam and found it to be quite fun on the stereoscopic screen.
Watch the trailer below and tell us what you make of it. Will you be investing in both Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and Resident Evil Revelations, or will you be choosing one or the other?
