Kawata Hints at Fan-Favourite Unlockables in The Mercenaries 3D

Posted by Trevor Chan

Will it have anything to do with bean curd?

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D might not be the full Resident Evil experience that Resident Evil Revelations will be, but producer Masachika Kawata assures us that fans of the series won't be disappointed with the unlockables that Capcom has planned.

Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine, when asked about the secret content that the game has tucked away, Kawata revealed:

We'd most likely have the usual thing - an all-time favourite of Resident Evil fans. We like working on that so we are looking forward to it!

As a separate entry into the series that's based on the Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will feature Chris Redfield and his sister Claire Redfield, Krauser, and Hunk as playable characters as gamers blast their way through timed-stages, defeating as many enemies as they can whilst racking up a high score. To see how it's shaping up, be sure to read our First Impressions of the game when we gave it a spin back in January.

As for the final product, will there be additional characters to unlock? Perhaps the Tofu mode from Resident Evil 2 will make a return, or something more contemporary like a first-person story mode? As the Tofu mode is quite similar to the Mercenaries game structure, maybe Kawata has something else in mind? What fan-favourite feature would you like to see?

I would like to see a hard mode in the game, and the FPS shooter story mode would be nice and hopefully more unlockable characters in the game like Leon, Ada, Jill, and Wesker.

Shouldn't the first line read: "Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D might not be the full Resident Evil experience that Resident Evil Revelations will be..."?

But anyway, can't wait to play this game myself and see how it turns out, because Mercs on RE4 was pretty awesome imo :)

nemesis would be a great playable character. i don't know what else he'd be hinting at, but that's probably not it.

Yep, sorted now.

I'm hoping a Tofu mode will be included in the Revelations game instead, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is what Kawata is talking about regarding Mercenaries.

More unlockable character would be fine for me, as just four characters at the moment on a (most likely) one- or two- gig cart of a full game wouldn't be that great of a deal, even though it has stuff from both RE4 and RE5.
Tofu mode would be pretty cool too.

This'll probably be my first RE game. Though when I played Dead Rising. I just could not get the over the shoulder thingy down.

First of all, Xkhaoz 3D, DEAD RISING'S shooting mechanic was a poor imitation of RE4's. Secondly I am a Mercenaries addict so I am super psyched about this game. Please give me Barry as an unlockable character and maybe a Zombie Mode where you jump to different zombies trying to hunt down your friend over WiFi. That would make me happy. Also, some cut-scenes and some sort of story could be done to give the one player experience some dramatic flair.

Why wouldn't they include characters like Ada and Wesker, especially if one-game characters like Krauser are included...? I'm pretty sure they'll both be unlockables. Maybe he means weapons like the PRL from Resi 4, although that'd make the game somewhat too easy....

It is capcom, so...mega man?

Would def like to see some Frank West, and maybe some of the other secondary modes from other games as well. Like the leech collection mode from Zero, not sure what it was called.

What the hell is first person story mode?

Leon and Jill are must have characters. Has Capcom given any idea when this game is going to be on shelves? <3

I would like to see:
Leon, Wesker, Barry, Luis Sera (Why wasn't he playable in RE4 btw?) Mikael (RE3: Mersenaries)
Stages from from RE 1-3 could be cool too, if that's even possible!
Nemesis, and some of the cool bosses/enemies from RE 4 would rock! (Dr. Salvador, Verdugo, El Gigante, Regenerador, Garrador & Osmund Saddler, in his human form, since it was actually a pretty cool fight)
Yeah, and give us some Tofu to digest too ;) It's been so long since RE2!
