Resident Evil will soon be making its first foray into mobile 3D gaming, and while that alone is pretty damn exciting, the idea of alternate costumes might even be more exciting than mowing down waves of non-zombies in 3D. Maybe. For some people. Like, the people that actually take time to think about what they should wear, as opposed to my morning technique that includes reaching into my closet in sleepy daze, grabbing something soft and throwing it on. For those people, alternate costumes are a pretty big deal.
So after the jump you can find the secondary costumes for the game’s eight playable characters, and most of them are pretty cool. HUNK has a badass Grim Reaper outfit with knived boots, Wesker has a cool mutation going on that he should probably have a Dermatologist take a look at, and Clair’s taken a more formal approach to kickassery. Then there are the more bizarre ones, like Barry’s patriotic threads and Rebecca’s… naughty nurse costume? No one’s judging, maybe I just don’t understand the strategic thinking behind dressing up as a nurse when fighting for your life. I’d prefer the tight leather straps of a dominatrix outfit myself, something form fitting to show off my stunning behind.
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D takes the popular Mercenaries mode from the last two games and makes it into a full game with eight characters with dozens of unlockable skills and abilities, and 30 missions. You can expect some familiar stages from Resident Evil 4 and 5, that can be played with a friend in the game’s two-player co-op.
Resident Evil gives us the chance to say “is that a plagas in your pants or are you just happy to see me?” to strangers on our commutes when the game releases on June 28th.
