Capcom Co. this week released an FAQ for the permanent save feature in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D for Nintendo Co.’s Nintendo 3DS.

The FAQ notes that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D includes a auto-save system consistent with arcade type gameplay in which users replay missions to improve upon previous high scores. It adds that the title can be played through multiple times and that consumers who purchase used copies of the game will not have any functionality missing.

Capcom this week confirmed mission progress is permanent and cannot be reset. It denied that used game sales were a factor in the lack of option to reset or delete the save file.

“Secondhand game sales were not a factor in this development decision, and we hope that all our consumers will be able to enjoy the entirety of the survival-action experiences that the game does offer.”

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D includes 30 missions, single or two-player network co-op play, and a skills and ability unlock system.

The final game includes a new Skill Slot to fill three slots with a selection of 30 skills, like weapons performance, reload speed or melee abilities.
