Resident Evil 3 Remake Announced for April 2020

Capcom have recently revealed the Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Yes that’s right, my favourite Resident Evil game of all time has gotten a taste of Capcom’s amazing remake magic.

In the original version on PlayStation, you play as Jill Valentine trying to escape Raccoon City, which has been overrun with the T-Virus. Along the way, you’ll encounter more of Umbrella’s monsters, including the intimidating Nemesis who will stop at nothing to kill the remaining S.T.A.R.S. members. As well as some of Umbrella’s Rescue Force sent in to help secure the city and evacuate the citizens left alive.

Although the remake was leaked through a PlayStation Store listing earlier this month, the official trailer for Resident Evil 3 debuted today at Sony’s State of Play presentation.

The announcement by Sony also confirmed Capcom’s Project Resistance is actually Resident Evil 3’s multiplayer mode. It’s now simply named Resident Evil Resistance. Whether this will replace Resident Evil 3’s original (and brilliant) Mercenaries mode remains to be seen.

Not everyone is a fan of the redesign

Fun was poked at Nemesis’ giant “pencil” teeth and new human looking nose.

Last week Twitter was abuzz with the news of the rumoured remakes appearance on the PlayStation store. It was also full of tweets poking fun at the Nemesis redesign. Fans were not all too happy about the new nose and dental work the giant creature has received.

The original design looks to be scarier than the proposed remake above

In the gameplay we’ve seen, it shows that Nemesis is taking a leaf out of Mr. X’s book and will be relentlessly pursuing you throughout the game.

Dual Gameplay

According to the developer, you’ll be playing as both characters in the remake, similar to how Leon and Claire functioned as dual protagonists in Resident Evil 2. We will have to wait and see if this involves a dual campaign like Resident Evil 2 or if it is just singular story elements like the original game.

There’s an additional developer message from Capcom below, featuring some brief glimpses of new gameplay featuring Jill.
