Even Mercenaries Need a Fresh Change of Clothes

Capcom reveals alternative costumes

With Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D having just launched in Japan, the rest of the world will have several weeks to wait before the game makes it their way. Luckily, Capcom is still in the mood for teasing as the mercenaries' alternative costumes have now been revealed.

The ability to unlock new garbs is nothing new to the franchise, so fans shouldn't be so surprised that such content is available. What is surprising though, is what some of the characters have picked out from the wardrobe.

For example, it's logical that Rebecca Chambers ― a S.T.A.R.S. medic ― should appear in a nurse uniform, even if it is a little revealing! Chris Redfield still looks every part the alpha male he is in his flight suit. Aside from these relatively safe bets, there are some characters like Barry Burton and the mysterious Hunk who aren't afraid to go with something a little different.

You can check out what the rest of the cast have packed into their clothes bag in the gallery below, and because we love you, there's also a characters trailer to watch too. Not a lot of gameplay footage, just a reminder of how cool the mercenaries can look in freeze frame.
