Resident Evil 3 Remake

Resident Evil 3 appears to be getting the Resident Evil 2 treatment. May I humbly offer that we all call this one “Resident Evil 3make”?

While it has been rumored for months, we now have evidence that RE3 is getting an RE2-style remake. Twitter user Nibel caused a massive ruckus this morning when they tweeted official-looking art, datamined from the Japanese PSN. The art, which shows Nemesis – the Mr. X-like monster that followed players through the original PS1 game – looming over protagonists Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira.

Another picture, for something called the “Z Version” – likely a differently-priced version of the game – gives us a zoomed in look at Nemesis’ menacing melted cheese face.

These pictures were surfaced by Gamstat, a small Patreon-supported website that attempts to determine the amount of players per game for PlayStation and Xbox games, rather than just the copies sold.

Nibel also linked to a picture on the Resident Evil subreddit, from u/AestheticGamer, showing a close-up of RE3make’s Jill.

This all comes on the heels of the extremely successful January launch of Resident Evil 2 Remake. Between that stellar remake and 2017’s Resident Evil 7, Capcom’s flagship survival horror series has been on a winning streak. Resident Evil 3 isn’t nearly as beloved as 2, so it will be interesting to see what steps Capcom takes to modernise it.

Prior to this leak, rumours had pointed to an official reveal at The Game Awards. That show is just nine days away, but a leak as official-looking as this may push Capcom to say more, sooner.
