E3 2011: Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D's alternate costumes revealed

Capcom is weeks away from dropping Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D on western shores, and to make sure we're still stoked about the arrival of the 3DS zombie-shooter, it's delivered a fresh batch of promo pics showing off the alternate costumes available for each of the eight main characters. From Hunk in grim reaper garb, to Rebecca playing naughty nurse, Wesker getting his freak on, and Barry looking...uh...patriotic(?) in his pseudo gigalo outfit, it looks like there will be something to suit every fashion taste.


Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will be the series' first outing on the 3DS. Based on the 'Mercenaries' bonus missions from Resident Evil 4 and 5, the game will challenge players with trekking into familiar locales and surviving waves of infected baddies for a specific amount of time. The game will also feature a co-op mode to make the zombie killing a lot less lonelier. Check out the newly released trailer to see which Resident Evil characters will be making an appearance when the game drops for North America on June June 28th, and in the UK on July 1st.

    @ZidaneAlcore "the one that (somehow) reminds me of a cross between Advent Children Yuffie and Lara Croft are my favorites" Thats Jills RE3 outfit, her most iconic outfit of all. Do you know anything about Resident Evil or are you just hopping on the bandwagon now?
  • Japanaman - June 10, 2011 3:40 p.m.

    Except for Jill's RE3 outfit, I hate the costumes. The costumes should have been this: Chris: RE1, RE5, Air Force Flight Suit Jill: RE1, RE3, RE5 Outfit Rebecca: RE1, Military Medic Outfit, Scrubs Barry: RE1, Biker, Hunting Krauser: RE4, Shirtless, Special Ops Hunk: Original, Killzone Style, Storm Trooper colors Wesker: RE5, RE1, Labcoat Claire: RE2, RECV, African style outfit And if other characters existed in the game: Steve: RECV, Dressy Clothes, Emo Goth Punk Leon: RE4, RE2, Blank Tanktop with Black Leather Pants Sheva: RE5, African Outfit, Dressed Up Tofu: RE2, Fried Tofu Outfit, Tofu Dog Outfit Tyrant: Tyrant, Mr. X., Tyrant 2 Nemesis: RE3, Shirtless, Doc Ock Outfit

    Isn't the woman in the suit Ingrid Hunnigan from RE4 and RE:Degeneration??? It looks more like her than Claire.

    what's interesting to note is that no one seems to remember the battle modes from Resi 1 and 2. Of course for 1 it was only on the saturn, featured a zombie wesker and a gold tyrant. While 2 I believe it was only the dual shock version of the game,and it was still just called a battle mode. But it did introduce Hunk as a primary character, and also Tofu, who should be in this game.

    @erreip199 Mercs started with the Mad Jackal mode in RE3...get the facts straight if you want to complain. Anyways...Hunk, Krauser and Wesker were all featured in RE4 mercs, and Wesker and Krauser had roles in the storyline...furthering my point.

    Nice. I'm a big fan of Jill's RE3 costume, and its the costume I always use when playing the Resi 1 REmake on Gamecube. Hunk's looks pretty darn boss too.
  • Riska - June 10, 2011 8:16 a.m.

    @erreip199 "What i Find funny is that they havent added any RE4 characters... they were the first cast in this minigame!" Actually, mercenaries started with resident evil 3. and I agree with ranatsu, Claire, Jill and Wesker are the only decent costumes. Hunk's is ok I guess.
  • mattdark - June 10, 2011 6:13 a.m.

    @ erreip199 - Krauser was a RE4 character.
  • quincytheodore - June 10, 2011 5:14 a.m.

    Ah... I don't mean to offend, but this was already out a week ago. Anyway it's good to see sexy char without breast implant here.
  • ranzatsu - June 10, 2011 5:11 a.m.

    Seriously, the only ones who look cool to me are Claire, Jill and Wesker. Rebecca's outfit is so inappropriate for a zombie outbreak. Aww, Leon's not included in the game?
  • sjneow - June 10, 2011 4:13 a.m.

    to be fair, we got equal numbers of 2 male characters that showed as much skin as the 2 female characters. Thats what I call gender equality. Chill, guys.
  • Sy87 - June 10, 2011 4:10 a.m.

    Really Hunk does not need an alternate costume. He is so badass that the one suit is all he needs. Anyway I kinda still like America but thats a little too far. But Jill is by far the best. Bout time they bring back her RE 3 outfit. Yeah its some what sexualize but I like it. At least she is not blond darn blondes and their genetic deformity JK but yeah being blond is an oddity i'm sure the doctor can tell you why. Brunettes for life.
  • ThatGuyFromTV - June 10, 2011 3:49 a.m.

    Barry easily takes the gold medal here. Claire probably takes the silver, and the mask guy (don't know his name) takes bronze. ReCaptcha: imayour birth WTF?
  • SVC5 - June 10, 2011 2:19 a.m.

    Revelations looks alot better than this one.
  • ZidaneAlcor - June 10, 2011 2:05 a.m.

    To be fair, it's not just Japan that oversexualizes female characters. We do it too. They just do it differently. But regardless... The costumes are quite nice, I think. The reaper one and the one that (somehow) reminds me of a cross between Advent Children Yuffie and Lara Croft are my favorites.
  • erreip199 - June 10, 2011 1:57 a.m.

    What i Find funny is that they havent added any RE4 characters... they were the first cast in this minigame!
  • MyNameIsMyName - June 10, 2011 1:37 a.m.

    Aww no Steve Burnside way to cheat the ginger's. What is with Japan and oversexualizing female characters.
  • nemesisuprising - June 10, 2011 1:14 a.m.

    anyone notice that the guy with the bow lookd EXACTLY like boon in NCR armor?
