Capcom on a standalone Resident Evil Mercenaries game for consoles - 'Let's talk next week'

Capcom was asked by a fan about the possibility of a standalone Resident Evil Mercenaries game for consoles. The 3DS enjoyed such an experience, but could the same be in the works for consoles?

“Understood on the request. Let’s talk next week on this topic. The other thing you should look forward to is trying out the extremely expanded Raid Mode (details to come in the coming months) in RE: Revelations. I find it scratches a LOT of the same itches.” - Capcom’s Senior Vice-President, Christian Svensson

Take that comment as you will. I take it as some news coming soon!

Raid Mode does not scratch any of the Mercenaries itches. At all.

I like Raid Mode, a lot. But it is NOT Mercenaries and does not fill that void. When I got Revelations I figured 'I don't need Mercenaries 3D, Raid Mode is the same thing', but it's not. Not that I NEED Mercenaries 3D, but Raid Mode did not "scratch" that "itch".

Also, I was just talking about how I really hope they either release an enhanced Mercenaries 3D on consoles or make a new one with NEW areas and more characters/DLC.

However, I think it should be a standalone download title, not a retail game. XBLA, PSN, eShop? Sign me up day one. Especially if it has all my favorites and none of that "Leon's too busy" crap for ANY character.

Bring a RE with both modes.

The only reason I care about the franchise anymore. I'd pay big for a complete mercenaries game with everything I could want in it. The biggest problem with 3D was the characters but it did introduce the skill system which was pretty great. If they do this I hope they retain the RE5 style rather than making it like RE6.

I may not be the biggest fan of Mercenaries in general but I definitely had more fun with it than Raid Mode.
