Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D producer hints at fan-favourite secrets

An all-time Resident Evil favourite to return. Who could it be?

Masachika Kawata, the producer of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, has told Official Nintendo Magazine that his team is working on secret unlockables that will please Resident Evil fans.

Asked if Capcom is planning to include secrets and unlockables in the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS action game, Kawata said "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!"

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D stars classic characters Claire and Chris Redfield alongside Hunk and Krauser but will the game feature secret characters from the Resident Evil series or will the Tofu mode - which made its debut in Resident Evil 2 - return?

We hope it's both. How about you? What character would you like to play as in Resident Evil: The Merceanaries 3D?

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is set to be released for Nintendo 3DS before June. To read more about the making of the game, buy the new issue of Official Nintendo Magazine.

    I would love to play as Leon. In his blue navy suit!
    It would be great to unlock lots of characters, weapons and other extra's. :D

    Well, he also said that there will be nothing from the 'Classic' games, so unless he's just lying for the sake of keeping an announcement under his hat my interest in this has diminished a bit.

    She will be. Although she hasn't been announced yet, I'm sure there have been screenshots released that show her in it.

    Tofu mode would be absolutely hilarious. It was in Darkside Chronicles so why not this?

    Maybe we'll be able to play as Ashley from Resident Evil 4! Armed with a flashlight, some lamps and a shrill voice that cries "Leon!!!" every two minutes, she would be unstoppable. :wink:
    Oh how I pray that this isn't the case.
