RESIDENT EVIL – THE MERCENARIES 3D is a survival horror game for the 3DS console in which the player is involved in a series of time-based challenges to eliminate hordes of rampaging zombies. The game was classified '15' for strong bloody violence.

The gameplay, which can be experienced in 2D or 3D, requires the successful completion of missions in which the player is challenged to kill attacking zombies in a certain period of time. This challenge mode has featured previously as part of the fourth and fifth RESIDENT EVIL games. Each player character is armed with a chosen arsenal of guns, explosives or knives for melee fighting, while the zombies are equipped with axes, chainsaws and farming tools. Bullet impacts to zombies cause blood spurts and occasional decapitations, and they can also be weakened with shots to the leg which allows the player to finish the kill with a knife or a stamp to the head. Although strong and frequent, the violence is not personalised or sadistic as the player must fight numerous enemies that rush towards him and there is no opportunity to inflict further damage on the zombies once they have been killed. The overall presentation of the violence, which takes place in the fantastical context associated with 'zombie horror', meets with the requirements of the BBFC's Guidelines at '15' which state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic or sexualised violence is also unlikely to be acceptable'.
