Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3DS to discourage trade-ins?

Save games cannot be deleted, claims report

According to reports save files in Capcom's Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3DS cannot be deleted from the 3DS game cartridge, seemingly discouraging the sale of pre-owned copies of the game.


We're not exactly sure what the point of this is (other than making punters pay top dollar), but retailers in Japan have significantly reduced the game's trade-in value. TinyCartridge is reporting retailers are offering around $6 for the game, which is released later this week.

Unlike traditional Resident Evil titles, The Mercenaries 3D is a fast-paced shooter that focuses on action set pieces and scoring. The game places focus on developing a character's skills by completing the missions multiple times.

NGamer's review says that Mercenaries "has depth that you're not going to appreciate until you've gone through it again and again.
