Capcom has released some new screenshots of upcoming Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and with them, confirms the last of the eight characters we'll be playing as in the game.

As you can see, the newest member of the mercenaries team is Barry Burton, one of the original characters from the first Resident Evil game. Unsurprisingly, we probably won't have to worry about him as he runs off blasting zombies in the face because as always, he's got his beloved magnum with him.

Burton joins the rest of the cast that consist of Chris Redfield, his sister Claire Redfield, Jack Krauser, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker and Rebecca Chambers.

As previously reported, producer Masachika Kawata has hinted at fan-favourites as part of the game's unlockables, but exactly what they would be he didn't explain. Will some of these characters have to be unlocked before they are playable, or can we expect more surprises hidden away in the game?

Capcom has managed to utilise assets that were developed for the home consoles and work them into The Mercenaries 3D. To give gamers taste of what's to come, The Mercenaries 3D will come with a demo of Resident Evil Revelations, allowing players to sample the freighter section of the game.
