Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D (known as Biohazard: The Mercenaries 3D in Japan) is a Nintendo 3DS title developed by Capcom and Tose and published by Capcom. The game is a combination of "The Mercenaries" mini-games from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
The camera of the game is set behind the player, moving through real-time rendered 3D environments. Unlike most other games in the series, players have the option of aiming from a first-person viewpoint, although the over-the-shoulder aiming from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 is also available. Another feature is the ability to move while aiming, reloading weapons, and recovering health. Gameplay is shown on the top screen of the Nintendo 3DS, while inventory management is handled on the touch screen. Players are able to customize their characters' abilities (labelled as "Skills") and weapons load-out by obtaining "Skill Points" and "Rankings" based on their gameplay performance. The game also features alternate costumes for each character to unlock, such as a nurse outfit for Rebecca, or an American flag-motif outfit for Barry. The game includes Wi-Fi connectivity for cooperative play from players around the world, as well as new modes and characters from across the series. The game also features a short playable demo of the upcoming survival horror game, Resident Evil Revelations, which shows Jill Valentine investigating a desolate cruise liner inhabited by strange bio-organic weapons (BOWs).
