Resident Evil Raccoon City Screens (Update)

Capcom has released some ingame screens of the upcoming coop zombie third person shooter. Before we get to those screens, some gamers may be happy to learn that you will be able to run and shoot in both Resident Evil: Raccoon City and Mercenaries 3D. One of the creators of the new Mercenaries game for the Nintendo 3DS, Tsukasa Takenaka, shares his thoughts with us.

Certainly there’s a lot of debate as to whether stopping, having the player not be able to move [before shooting] in the old ones was a good thing or a negative thing. The goal of this game isn’t the traditional goal of creating a Resident Evil horror atmosphere. Mercenaries is totally focused on the action and creating a more fast-paced game that is very different than the other Resident Evil games in the series.

Furthermore, here is a brief rundown of what Resident Evil Raccoon City is all about:

– Team based shooter set in the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe.

– Triple threat battle as zombies and B.o.w’s add to the action.

– Compete alone in Campaign mode as an umbrella Security Service member or in a four player co-op team battle.

– Rewrite the history of the raccoon City outbreak. revisit classic moments from Resident EvilTM 2 and Resident EvilTM 3 and watch events unfold from the perspective of the umbrella Security Service.

– Return of favorite RE enemies, iconic landmarks and characters, including leon S. Kennedy who is on your hit list to eliminate.

– Competitive online multiplayer modes provide a unique gaming experience thanks to the three corner combat between the umbrella Security Service, uS Special ops and threat of zombies and B.o.w’s.

The game is scheduled to come out in Winter 2011 and will be available on the 360, PS3, and PC.
