Russian model revealed as new Jill Valentine in Resident Evil 3
Sasha Zotova ‘honoured’ to be new face of protagonist
The new face of Jill Valentine, the lead protagonist in Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 remake, has been revealed as a Russian model.
Sasha Zotova revealed the news on her Instagram, telling followers: “It is such an honor for me to work with Capcom and to be the face model of a cult character and join the RE family. Thanks to Jill Valentine fans for your kindness and politeness.”
Capcom officially announced the remake of Resident Evil 3 in December, with a release set for April 3, 2020.
UPDATE: An Instagram model has confirmed she’s Resident Evil 4 remake’s Ashley actress.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: The game was revealed during PlayStation’s latest State of Play live stream, after details of the project emerged in November and images of the game were found on the PlayStation Network earlier in the month.
Originally released for PlayStation in 1999, Resident Evil 3 follows Jill Valentine as she attempts to escape Raccoon city in the immediate aftermath of the virus outbreak, before the events of Resident Evil 2.
Resident Evil 3 features more action-oriented gameplay than previous instalments and introduces the Nemesis creature, which periodically pursues the player.
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.
Resident Evil 3 remake is being partly developed by M-Two Inc, a new studio founded by former PlatinumGames CEO Tatsuya Minami, VGC understands.
