Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D teased with viral video

How do you make playing Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D sound hilarious? Perhaps the best solution is to turn to the tried-and-true recourse for retailers of hard-to-summarize content in the age of YouTube: post a tongue-in-cheek viral advert. Capcom does it Onion-style in this fake news broadcast, replacing the usual focus on series scares and gory action with a comedic update on the War on Horror to sell its upcoming collection of mini-games from Resident Evil 4 and 5. Yes, modern life is ridiculous, shoot zombies. Such is the power of the moving image.

We also have a batch of new screenshots for the 3DS title, which suggest that what the game loses in transition to the small screen, it makes up for with a clean interface and the ability to bullseye Ganados while on the train or during your lunch break. Because, again: modern life is ridiculous, shoot zombies.

    So it's coming out on the 28th eh? I guess I'll pick it up then.

    Hang on a minute - isn't it part of Resi lore that Umbrella cover up all of their projects (and outbreaks)? Why would there even be a news report? Umbrella would be all over that shit.

    @Citizen Wolfie, Umbrella disbanded by resident evil 4, so resi 4 and 5 would be known, people would at least be aware of zombie outbreaks after 3, i mean you cant just say, "Sorry we nuked a city out of existance, it was a mistake" and hope it all just goes away
