How do you make playing Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D sound hilarious? Perhaps the best solution is to turn to the tried-and-true recourse for retailers of hard-to-summarize content in the age of YouTube: post a tongue-in-cheek viral advert. Capcom does it Onion-style in this fake news broadcast, replacing the usual focus on series scares and gory action with a comedic update on the War on Horror to sell its upcoming collection of mini-games from Resident Evil 4 and 5. Yes, modern life is ridiculous, shoot zombies. Such is the power of the moving image.

We also have a batch ofnew screenshots (opens in new tab)for the 3DS title, which suggest that what the game loses in transition to the small screen, it makes up for with a clean interface and the ability to bullseye Ganados while on the train or during your lunch break. Because, again: modern life is ridiculous, shoot zombies.
