You’ll also be able to battle your friends face-to-face using the inner camera to broadcast a live feed of each player’s facial expressions during multiplayer dogfights.

Packed with pulsating action – Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D delivers an intense race against the clock featuring well-known Resident Evil characters from both past and present. Play as some of the most famous Resident Evil characters such as Albert Wesker, Chris Redfield and, making her debut in a Mercenaries game, Claire Redfield. Take part in face-offs against some of the most notorious enemies, such as the Executioner and PopoKarimu. With re-mastered stages from Resident Evilâ„¢ 4 and Resident Evilâ„¢ 5, the game – which launched on Nintendo 3DS on1 July 2011 – is a race against time as you attempt to defeat as many enemies as possible before the countdown reaches zero.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
