BBFC Slaps 17th June Date on Resident Evil: Mercenaries

Posted by James Newton

With free demo included

Today Capcom announced that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will come with a Resident Evil Revelations demo, but when can UK gamers get their hands on the multiplayer monster mash? As soon as 17th June, according to ratings board BBFC.

The board slapped a 15 certificate on the game and its included demo — named Resident Evil Revelations Pilot Version — with a release date down for 17th June. Of course, until Capcom Europe makes an official announcement this is entirely speculative, but considering the recent Resident Evil-related leaks we wouldn't be surprised if this came true.

they marked it 15+ for strong bloody violence if so that means no language and i could quite possibly be rated T in the US meaning i'd sure as heck get a 3DS

Wouldn't this kind of suck the freshness out of Revelations? I'll still most likely be buying, and if Barry is a no show I'm going to cry. :p

@ Mr.iwantwiipoints: I strongly doubt that either of the Resident Evil games will be rated T on the 3DS. Hell, even the Resident Evil 1 port on DS was rated M in the U.S., and the visuals in that game were quite primitive by contemporary standards.

"Strong bloody violence" makes it almost a certainty that it will be rated M in the U.S.
