HOLY FUCKING CRAP

Biohazard: The Mercenaries 3D is being re-released in Japan as a Best Price budget package release on Dec. 13 and as an e-Shop download on Dec. 27.

Capcom has modified the game slightly so that players can start a new game. The original release received plenty of controversy because the save file could not be erased.

Also, the Revelations demo contained in the original game has been removed from the Best Price/e-Shop version.

Nice, a smart re-release for once. Might double dip then, Mercenaries is perfect for an eShop release.

Good that they fixed that.

But why bother when revelations is out?

Budget priced eShop game is what this should have been in the first place; I got it for 15 at a best buy sale last year and for that price it's a great game

It's not the same game. It's not the same content.

You can play as Claire...probably the last time you will be able to do so.

Game was incredibly fun.

With all the art assets they're sitting on these days, I would desperately love a content-rich sequel with a modicum of effort put into it.

Some of the areas are closed off, doesn't have all RE4/5 maps, doesn't have all RE4/5 characters, although returning charaters from 4 are reworked to have 5's melee attacks. When enemies are far away they have like 1 frame animations so the game can run.

It also has the stupid +5 seconds per melee kill that makes having a good score kinda repetitive, which is a personal peeve.

It's mission structured, but missions barely involve more than just difficulty raises, although there's a pair of Wave battles.

There's also skills that you can use that level up, like better handling on a type of weapon or better damage on bosses.

That's what I'd like to know. I actually kind of want a 3DS for this game, Mercs is such a fun time waster. It's pretty much ideal for 15 minute mobile gaming.

A surprising amount of overlap in the levels and loadouts.

Maybe less characters on screen at a given point but still "enough".

A better sense of progression as you unlock (a fair amount of) stuff, and a pretty solid online mode for co-op, too.

I don't know nothing about Resident Evil, but this was some kind of crazy arcade score attack game, right?

I could be persuaded to try it out with the right price (and maybe a demo).

For the most part it's RE5 mercs: portable edition. I loved what I got out of it. Could've used a lot more content though.

3DS can do patches, but I doubt they'll patch this game.

If this release in NA on the eShop for $19.99 or less, I'll double-dip.

Leon's death in Operation Raccoon City was shitty enough to ripple through all possible universes and erase his existence.

(it narrowly missed him in RE6, and accidentally killed the franchise instead)

I believe this came out before the firmware that allowed game patches. So, it may not have the hooks for it.

Also, there's been like what... one patch for a retail game ever?

I think a lot of other who didn't even know of its existence may buy it as well with the thought that it's just a premium priced eshop title.

One of those girl touching games was patched. Kingdom Hearts as well, I believe.

And I think Mario Kart 7 was pre-firmware as well, so it's possible.

It still blows my mind how big of a deal people made this out to be.

I've had my copy for a year and half, and have sunk nearly 100 hours into it. Not once have I thought to myself "man, I wish I could erase all of my high scores".

I got a second hand copy recently for just $4 because the save file thing made this game absolutely worthless.



Good times.

Game is pretty shit though. Capcom didn't put any effort into it at all.

I wouldn't say "any effort". The game was a pretty decent release, but it shouldn't have been $40.
