After years of hope and speculation, Capcom finally revealed the existence of Resident Evil 2′s remake, which released to a torrent of good reviews and fan support. Now, after a leak has all but confirmed another iconic entry in the survival-horror franchise is getting a remake, Capcom is back again to hype up the fans. Resident Evil 3 Remake was just announced, and it’s coming in early 2020.
Just like the original RE3, this remake will tell the story of Jill Valentine, the master of unlocking, and her last efforts to escape Raccoon City alive. The zombie plague has begun to overrun the city after the events of the previous two games, because technically this is a prequel to Resident Evil 2, and the adventures of Leon and Claire haven’t happened yet. As Jill fights her way to safety, she encounters a terrifying new foe created by the T-virus and Umbrella’s efforts, the Nemesis or Pursuer. A special hybrid mutant created through the bio-weapons programs run by Umbrella.
In the remake, we’re definitely going to see a revamped art style, based on the newer and much more pretty RE Engine. All of the character models, animations and environments from the original PS1 game will be remade in some way. We can also expect Capcom to expand upon the story in new ways just like they did with the previous remake.
Resident Evil 3 Remake is coming April 3, 2020 to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. And apparently, it’s not coming alone.
Resident Evil 3 Remake is coming out with Project Resistance, that co-op asymmetrical multiplayer video game Capcom announced a while back, bundled in. Resident Evil 3 and Project Resistance will be a combo pack, instead of being sold separately. It will be interesting to see if there are any other new gameplay additions in Resident Evil 3 Remake like they did with RE2. The Ghost Survivors was pretty fun for a romp,
