Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D set for European release in July

Nintendo of Europe have today announced that they have signed a distribution agreement with Capcom for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D which will see the company responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the game throughout European territories, with Capcom remaining as publisher.

For the first time intense Mercenaries gameplay experience is delivered on a handheld console, featuring re-mastered stages from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The game is a race against time as players attempt to defeat as many enemies as possible before the countdown reaches zero.

There are a variety of gameplay formats on offer with a solo mission option or the ability to team up with others across the world in two-player co-op via network play. The game also includes the addition of an all new Skill Slot feature, in which players will be able to fill three skill slots from a selection of 30 skills including improvements to weapons performance, reload speed or melee abilities and customise characters to best suit their style of play.

Playable characters include Chris Redfield, Krauser, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Rebecca Chambers, Albert Wesker and, making her debut in a Mercenaries game, Claire Redfield.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is scheduled for release across Europe in July this year.
