Resi Evil: Mercs 3D: no save data reset

To combat second hand sales?

UPDATE: The UK version of Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D, which has just landed on Eurogamer's desk, confirms the Tiny Cartridge report. The manual reads: "saved data on this software cannot be reset."

ORIGINAL STORY: It is impossible to delete save data from upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, according to a new report.

The US version's manual reads: "saved data on this software cannot be reset", according to pictures published by Tiny Cartridge.

The website speculates this may be a deliberate ploy on behalf of Capcom to combat second hand sales of the game.

Eurogamer has asked Capcom and European distributor Nintendo for comment.
