One thing is especially clear, Capcom isn’t pulling any punches when it comes to the Resident Evil 3 Remake, as it looks just as awesome (or arguably even better) than the Resident Evil 2 Remake, which has won multiple GotY awards already. Powered by the RE Engine, the game will blow players away with its gore, updated gameplay and graphics, as well as new mechanics such as a quick dodge and a whole lot more, come 3 April 2020 when it launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

While the Resident Evil 3 Remake release date and trailer revealed at the Sony State of Play last night, it is clear that the rumours were correct and yes, the Nemesis will make his return to Racoon City. On the PlayStation Blog by Sony, Capcom explains that:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#33FFDF” class=”” size=”18″] A big part of the original Resident Evil 3 was the introduction of a constant pursuer in Nemesis. You could never be quite sure where he’d pop up next, and if you did encounter him, you had another problem on your hands: He could follow you from one area to the next. Sounds just like a certain fedora-wearing, the boot-stomping creature from earlier this year, doesn’t it? Nemesis, as something of an “upgrade” to the line of Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.s) that Tyrant hails from, was also a bit more intelligent and capable using weapons – even those who haven’t played the original game likely know he’s fond of rocket launchers.


Alongside Nemesis, the original Resident Evil 3 introduced a number of new features, including a unique dodge mechanic that, with just the right timing, could let you get out of the way of nearly any attack, and cutting-edge polygonal graphics mixed with fixed camera angles to create a sense of dread. You never knew what was around the next corner, just a camera cut away. Of course, bringing a classic game into the present day means improved tech and modern flourishes.


Resident Evil 3 follows its predecessor by swinging the camera over Jill’s shoulder to put you dead-centre in the horror that’s unfolding all around, while cutting-edge photogrammetry is used to scan in actors and create true-to-life performances – that includes scanning in real people for the zombies, too! The undead certainly never looked so life-like. Just like with Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 7 biohazard before it, you can expect heightened horror and plenty of terrifying encounters among the city streets. [/perfectpullquote]

The remake sounds awesome, but there’s even more. Capcom has revealed that those who buy Resident Evil 3 will also receive the asymmetric multiplayer spin-off, known as Resident Evil: Resistance for free.
