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?
