Resident Evil 3 remake announced for April 2020

Nemesis in Resident Evil 3

Michael McWhertor for Polygon:

It’s official: Capcom is remaking Resident Evil 3. Similar in style to 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake, the new version of Resident Evil 3 will inject new life into the 20-year-old original PlayStation game with updated graphics and modern gameplay mechanics.

The remake of Resident Evil 3 isn’t the only Resident Evil title that developer Capcom has on the drawing board. Resident Evil Resistance is a four-against-one online multiplayer game and it will be included as part of the Resident Evil 3 remake as a multiplayer mode.

This looks sooo good. With the release date being so soon, there’s no way they weren’t working on this early into RE2’s development. It’s likely that when they started hearing how excited people were to check out that remake, they got moving on the follow-up.

I’m also excited to see that Capcom’s other Resident Evil project, Resistance, will be getting bundled with RE3. I can’t say I would have given the online game a shot otherwise but if it’s already installed on my machine? Yeah, I’ll give it a spin.
