Capcom just dropped a new gameplay trailer for Resident Evil 3 Remake showing off some key details. The trailer’s focus is on Nemesis, the titular enemy from the original game. Before the second RE film completely annihilated the character in favor of the Alice Mary Sue altar, the character was the primary threat in Jill Valentine’s last escape.
Along with Nemesis, the new trailer also shows off some supporting characters. We get a peek at Carlos Oliveira, the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) agent who helps Jill out later in the game, and then becomes a playable character. Fans also catch a glimpse of Brad Vickers, who was a survivor from the original Mansion incident. And in case you were wondering, no, there won’t be any addon modes shipped with the new version that expand the story like with Resident Evil 2 Remake. Players will only get one static ending, and the Project Resistance asymmetrical multiplayer mode. The new game does include a larger file size than the previous one, but likely due to more areas being remade.
Check out the beast in action in the trailer below.
Compared to the original game, this version of the evolved mutated freak is much more deadly. According to Capcom, Resident Evil 3 Remake features “an incredibly fast and powerful adversary.” Nemesis is being redesigned to be even more threatening in the remake. In the original game he was basically just a bullet sponge that you often avoided, but that’s not the name of the game here.
Nemesis in Resident Evil 3 Remake is faster and stronger, even able to flip cars and toss foes out of his way with ease. He also wields a flamethrower and various beefed up weapons in his insane arsenal.
Resident Evil 3 drops on Apr. 3 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so prepare to flee in terror when it does drop.
