Resident Evil Mercenaries is the upcoming and first Resident Evil release for Nintendo’s new 3DS handheld console. It had already been announced that some pretty hefty names from Resident Evil’s past were included in the cast for this game including brother and sister, Chris and Claire Redfield, as well as Jack Krauser and Hunk. Capcom revealed this week two more names that will be joining the already star studded cast. Introducing Resident Evil heroine and hottie Jill Valentine and what would a Resident Evil game be without the ultra-antagonist Albert Wesker.
Here’s a youtube video of the two in action from Resident Evil Mercenaries:
On a side note it’s still not known whether all of these characters will be available from the beginning of the game or if players will have to unlock them through gameplay. Thankfully we won’t have to wait too much longer for an answer as Resident Evil Mercenaries is set for a June 6 release in North America. Even more exciting is that with the Resident Evil Mercenaries announcement came news that Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica X were both being ported and re-released in High Definition as Resident Evil Revival Selection on the PSN and Xbox Live. I can’t wait for both of them!
