Resident Evil 3 gets Nemesis trailer and new character details
Capcom’s latest series remake releasing in April
Capcom has released a new Resident Evil 3 remake trailer focused on the Nemesis creature.
Resident Evil 3 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.
It features more action-oriented gameplay than previous instalments and introduces the Nemesis monster, which pursues players throughout the story.
Capcom officially announced the remake of Resident Evil 3 in December, with a release set for April 3, 2020.
Like 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake, Resident Evil 3 has been remade in Capcom’s RE Engine with a new over-the-shoulder camera angle.
Capcom claims it’s built upon the AI used for Resident Evil 2’s Tyrant to make Nemesis even more terrifying, with the creature now able to roam the city “untethered”.
A Capcom Unity article published on Tuesday also provides further details about the game’s cast, including members of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service and Racoon City citizens, who are pictured in the screenshots below.
Capcom recently revealed that Resident Evil 3’s remake will feature more “rearranged” elements than 2019’s version of Resident Evil 2.
The title will not revive the Mercenaries game mode featured in the original, instead replacing it with new asymmetric multiplayer mode Resident Evil Resistance.
Resident Evil 3 remake is being partly developed by M-Two Inc, a new studio founded by former PlatinumGames CEO Tatsuya Minami, VGC understands.
