Resident Evil 3 will be the next game getting the full remake treatment. After leaks let development slip, today's PlayStation State of Play confirmed that Jill and Nemesis will return April 3, 2020 as the single-player campaign of Resident Evil Resistance.
The State of Play started with a quick teaser: a PlayStation start-up sound that some people noted sounded like the Resident Evil menu sound. The actual trailer ended up sliding in a surprise: it will be bundled with the previously announced Project Resistance, now called Resident Evil Resistance, a multiplayer co-op survival shooter in the world of Resident Evil.
In the trailer, you can see all of Raccoon City in glorious high-definition once more. It looks to follow the same plot, much like the RE2 Remake, but with a little more drama and a new camera angle. While we've got an idea of what to expect thanks to the previous remake, the tease of Nemesis at the end is pretty exciting.
A short gameplay clip was also shown in a message from the developers. It looks very similar to the RE2 Remake, but in a very good way. They also talk a little about the redesign of Jill and Carlos' looks.
The Capcom blog shared a little more info, noting that the RE Engine will once again be utilized to bring the universe to life. Nemesis can still arm itself with weapons like its iconic rocket launcher, and will still mercilessly chase Jill throughout Raccoon City.
Development of the RE3-make leaked last week through its cover art. It's not surprising that Capcom would be looking to remake more of its older games. Resident Evil 2 Remake was an encouraging success for the publisher, and Capcom seemed to be teasing the idea of Nemesis' glorious return earlier this year.
A new version of Resident Evil 3 could really highlight the Nemesis system. Plus, Jill finally gets her Remake honors as well. Bundled with the survival co-op Project Resistance, Resident Evil 3 is already looking like one to watch in an increasingly stacked spring 2020.
