Gallery: There Are No Words For Barry's Alternate Costume In Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

I mean, seriously, what the hell is this guy wearing? If only there was an another alternative color scheme that would turn the flag stripes to rainbow stripes, it would be absolutely perfect.

That said, for those of you looking forward to the June 28 (in North America) release of Capcom's Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, here's a gallery of the unlockable alternate costumes for the eight playable characters in the game. Along with a selection of 30 different skills and abilities for each character, the alternate duds are unlocked as you play through the 30 missions of the game.

Aside from Barry's ridiculous get-up, I'm really digging Jill's classic look. Rebecca's is just pandering fan service for horny hetero boys, but I have to admit that even infected with Uroboros, Wesker's alternate look is kind of hot!

Right?

Or is it just me?

What's with his basket? It should be conVEX, not conCAVE. I think it would be fun removing all those pieces of gear from Barry one by one.

I hate these costumes with a burning passion.

That aside even, these are mostly just redone versions of Chris and Sheva's alternates from five.

Nobody noticed Barry's is just Chris' leather outfit made into the American flag? Or that Krasuer's is the tan camo version of Chris' GoW looking alternate?

How about how Claire's is just Sheva's suit with pants instead of a skirt? And I really doubt Claire would ever wear a suit, where the hell's her RE2 get-up? Oh, and the first thing I thought of when I saw that slutty nurse Halloween costume of Rebecca's was Sheva's fairytale alternate. Rebecca's a young genius, expert medic. Why does Japan's pedophilia-bound fantasies towards young girls have to touch every series?

And really? Chris' fugly pilot costume is a total rip-off. He was ripped-off in 5 he's ripped off again here. If you ask me it's time they gave Chris the over-sexed costume. You all know Chris should've had a tribal outfit too, and some of you wouldn't mind that fairytale dress on him, don't lie.

Rant completed.

I get the yay factor for some at seeing Jill in a more 'classic' Jill outfit, but it's not like she isn't pandering either. She's dressed up to kill zombies. Having a tube top/halter and skirt on, regardless of how classic the attire is, is still there for a specific gaze. Just as much as Rebecca's horrendous outfit.

All the alternates are terrible, imo. Claire would never, never wear something like that. She's always been a tough biker chick and tomboy. Where does business mogul dress for success come in? And although she's covered up, it feels like a nab at the 'sexy librarian/secretary' appeal. Meh.

None of the dudes are sporting fetish gear, they are dressed as warriors or dressed to showcase their power. Even Barry's ridiculous costume that bares his chest still has him strapped to the nines and with some leg, arm, and shoulder protection. It's quite silly all around, as par for the course.

@Caracticus And yes, that is another of my pet peeves in video games. Women can have all this time spent on crafting boobs, fetish outfits, and jiggly physics, but men are mostly Kendoll'd. Nothing but smooth hips, no natural bulges, nothing. It's not a sexualization thing, it's an anatomy thing. And, imo, rather telling about what thought gets put into our games and character designs.

I wish that they would've added all of the Mercenaries characters.

I'm surprised by the absence of Sheva in particular.

They'll probably end up being DLC.

Man Chris, Jill, and Kraser have awful side costumes. Jill's business woman suit is awesome though... despite it looking like shevas side outfit. My favorite outfit is totally Rebecca's and who knew Barry Burton was such a huge fan of Lady Gaga's outfit from Telephone, he's just missing the American flag bandana.

Mikey said:

Barry really does look like he belongs in Gaga's Telephone video. Cute. Odd, but cute.

Jill's retro look is fantastic. I'm confused by Chris' extra look...not sure what they're going for there. Rebecca's extra is ridiculous, but might look cool in action (blasting away zombies). The one I really have an issue with is Claire. For one, it looks nothing like her. And secondly, as previously mentioned, she wouldn't wear that. Maybe that would have worked on Ada, but not Claire. I was hoping to see Claire's RE2, hot pink and black biker getup.

I have to agree on Wesker. But i'm wondering if it has anything to do with the thought of tentacles.... >.> The rest are just kinda bleh or boring.

Nexus said:

That's Jill's RE3 costume, isn't it?
I wouldn't really call that her 'classic' look.

I want to see her in her original costume. Her STARS outfit with the berret. That's the one that will forever represent Jill imo.
