Capcom On Resident Evil Mercenaries Game For Consoles: “Let’s Talk Next Week”

Resident Evil: Revelations, originally a 3DS game, is headed to the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U this year. For the console versions of Revelations, Capcom have given the game a visual upgrade and and a few additional features, which you can read about here.

Prior to Revelations, however, Capcom released another Resident Evil title for the 3DS—Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. This was a standalone game consisting of just the series’ Mercenaries mode, featuring maps from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. A similar game has not been announced for consoles.

Over on the Capcom forums, a user made a request for a standalone Resident Evil Mercenaries game to be released for home consoles, and Capcom’s Senior Vice-President, Christian Svensson, replied to his request. (PS3, Resident Evil Revelations, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I think it'll all be on the same disc with RE 6 maps, or 2 different games but with RE6 maps.

Why would you request a standalone Mercenaries game? Unless Capcom pump it full of stages, modes and characters from throughout the series and not just stages from 4, 5 and 6, what's the point? I enjoy Mercenaries as part of the main games but it doesn't need a standalone title. And we know Capcom won't put the effort in.

Does anyone see a connection between this and the rumor that a Resident Evil Mercenaries game was coming to the Wii U eShop? I think that's what we're going to finally see some bargain HD upgrade like Revelations with maybe new characters and locations, but it would have to be cheap like thirty MAYBE forty bucks for anybody to want to buy it. This could be what Capcom was saying they're announcing for the Wii U really soon.

Keep the 3D support!
