A new Resident Evil game has been announced for Nintendo's new handheld, 3DS. Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D features missions from the killing-against-the-clock Mercenaries mode from Resi 4 and Resi 5.
So not entirely new, although there will be some original modes and different characters that will hopefully keep things fresh. There will also be the ability for some Wi-Fi enabled co-op culling. Oh, and it'll be portable and in 3D, of course.
No more details so far (nothing on release date, price etc), but there are these screens:
I have to admit that this doesn't get me as pumped as the previously announced 3DS Resi game, Resident Evil: Revelations, but still... the Mercs mode in Resi 4 kept me hooked (Resi 5's not so much), so as long as it feels like it warrants a full release - as opposed to something that could've been an extra with Revelations - then count me in.
