Mercenaries is available from the start and it first showed up in RE3.

@Brian,

You’r absolutely right. The mode is available from the start. But, while the Mercenaries Mode in RE3 started it all, the mode in RE6 is patterned after RE4.

@Jake,

The retro outfits are literally retro; they’re blocky and pixelated versions of the characters, styled after the models in RE1 and RE2. It’s a strange costume choice from Capcom.

I wouldnt call Hunk and Tofu an actual mercenaries mode. They were just little side quests to see if you could escape.

Ok, I see what you’re talking about with the Exteme Battle Mode in the dual shock version. I only ever owned the original release, mystery solved.

Re2 was the start of Mercs, just not in the sense you are thinking. Resident evil 2 was re released on the dreamcast as well as other systems besides the ps1 in late 1998, This version has a type of mercs style game (Chris Redfield is even a playable character) however most people missed this by the time Re3 was released in 1999.

Subtle, but mercs did originally show up in 2.

@Lean S. Kennedy,

New stages are unlocked by completing the campaigns, I believe! Most of the Merc stages are DLC, which kind of sucks.

Just to correct this if anyone else stumbles upon this as late as I have, There are 3 Extra Costumes. 2 and 3 are RE.NET exclusive (at least right now.) and the first is unlocked by getting an A rank as stated above. For the EX2 costumes, you need 60,000 RE points. And to get the EX3 costume, you need an Extra Ticket, which is obtained through marked events. Just check the Online Events for them. You need a CAPCOM or CAPCOM-UNITY account to participate, along with an internet connection, and an online account. Not sure if you need Xbox LIVE Gold or not, since I mainly play PlayStation.
