It's only 15 seconds long, but this clip, from the Nintendo World reveal of the 3DS, is your first look at the gameplay of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.

Coming soon from Capcom, The Mercenaries will precede Resident Evil: Revelations on the 3DS. This game is a combination of the Mercenaries mode from Resident Evil 4 and 5, a timed shootout in which players vie for the highest score by racking up the most kills in the span. Mercenaries will be set in maps from RE4 and RE5.
