As leader of the M.E.R.C.S., Howard was secretly contacted by the U.S. government when a revolutionary group attempting to take over the central African nation of Zutula kidnapped a former U.S. president on a diplomatic trip.

The Sega Mega Drive port of Mercs featured two modes, an arcade mode, which mirrored the arcade release of the game, where the player had one "Merc" (soldier) who could pick up a variety of different weapons throughout the game; and an "original" mode, which included multiple playable characters, each with their own unique weapon. In both modes, the aim was to fight through the levels, defeating each boss at the end of every level.
- Mercs was also ported to the Sega Genesis and the PlayStation 2, as part of the Capcom Classics Collection.
