Resident Evil 5 brings back The Mercenaries mini game

Capcom has announced that they’re bringing back The Mercenaries mini game for Resident Evil 5. The unlockable survival challenge mode will pit players against constantly-spawning swarms of tougher enemies, with less ammo and an ever-diminishing time limit. In expectation of the desperate struggles for survival to come, they’ve released gameplay footage of Chris and Sheva battling back the mutant hordes in The Mercenaries-mode, along with 12 screens for those who want a closer look at the all the wrench-wielding action.

Though they didn’t get specific, we’re assuming you unlock The Mercenaries mini game the same way you did in Resident Evil 4, by simply beating the main game.
