Capcom May Already be Teasing a Resident Evil 3 Remake

Capcom may be eyeing its next victim.

Capcom is on something of a victory lap after the critical success of the Resident Evil 2 remake from earlier this year. But the company already seems to be teasing something for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, perhaps even a similar remake.

On the official Resident Evil Twitter account, Capcom tweeted two teases that seem to hint strongly to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. The first is an image of Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil Remake with the caption, "Ever feel like somebody's watching you...?" Jill is the protagonist of Resident Evil 3, and much of the game involves her running through Raccoon City avoiding the Tyrant Nemesis.

The second tweet posted earlier today shows a giant hole from the Resident Evil 2 remake. The caption reads, "Clearly something or someone doesn't understand the concept of doors... What do YOU think happened to the wall here? #RE2" Nemesis is known for breaking through walls, and the hole shown in the screenshot in the second tweet seems to imply that it was Nemesis' doing. It should be noted that the events of Resident Evil 2 are set after Resident Evil 3.

Fans theorize that another teaser should drop tomorrow, April 17 at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET. If the pattern holds, there could be another Resident Evil 3-related teaser, making a remake all the more likely.

Capcom hasn't ruled out a remake of Resident Evil 3, and in fact the game is already the subject of many leaks and rumors. Capcom itself says that a Resident Evil 3 remake could happen if the fans want it, and based on the reception of the Resident Evil 2 remake, I'd say the fans clearly want it.

We personally think a Resident Evil 3 remake could work even better than the Resident Evil 2 remake. For more, check out our Resident Evil 2 remake guide for our complete coverage. If you want more Resident Evil goodness, check out our definitive ranking of the best Resident Evil Games.
