The upcoming remake follows Jill Valentine as she attempts to escape Raccoon City in the immediate aftermath of a virus outbreak, before the events of Resident Evil 2.
Capcom also said on Monday that it will launch an open beta for the game’s new asymmetric multiplayer mode, Resident Evil Resistance, on March 27.
VGC recently published a Resident Evil 3 remake hands-on report featuring new details and screenshots.
“While we can’t yet assess just how good Resident Evil 3 Remake will turn out to be when played all the way through, our hands-on with the game left us wanting more,” it reads.
“Like Resident Evil 2 Remake – which, if anything, it outclasses in graphical terms – it felt like it had been judiciously and intelligently assembled, in such a way as to preserve the original game’s nature, while dragging it firmly into the 21st century.
“Capcom continues to offer its competitors an object lesson in how to remake the jewels of its back-catalogue.”
Resident Evil and PlatinumGames veteran Kiyohiko Sakata is the game director for Resident Evil 3, which is being partly developed by M-Two Inc, a new studio founded by former Platinum CEO Tatsuya Minami, VGC understands.
