Are Capcom Teasing A Resident Evil 3 Remake?on April 17, 2019 by Reuben Mount
We loved the Resident Evil 2 remake earlier this year, with it being a faithful update of the horrific Raccoon City incident. But, wasn’t someone else trapped in Raccoon City at the same time? Well, if Capcom’s various teases mean what they look like, we could be re-joining Jill in a Resident Evil 3 remake.
With certain images connected to the game appearing on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, we don’t think we’re clutching too far here. Also, they would be utterly foolish to not capitalise on all the goodwill that the Resident Evil 2 remake and Devil May Cry 5 have garnered (we’re ignoring the Capcom Home Arcade).
Capcom’s first Resident Evil 3 tease appeared on April 15th, 2019. It began with a screenshot showing Jill in the Resident Evil remake. It asked, “Ever feel like somebody’s watching you…?” This could be a reference to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, that saw Jill stalked by the titular Nemesis, who she frequently encounters throughout the game.

The second tease appeared on April 16th, 2019. It shows one of the walls in the Resident Evil 2 remake that has been smashed through. Since Resident Evil 2 takes place just after Jill dealt with Raccoon City’s horrors in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, it could be taken from this that they’re hinting at everyone’s favourite personal space-ignoring Tyrant here.

We would absolutely buy a Resident Evil 3 Remake, with Nemesis standing out as one of the most iconic antagonists in the whole series. But what do you think? Would you pick this up if it were confirmed? Do you think we’re looking a little too hard into this? Let us know in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter, and check back for more coverage of Resident Evil and other Japanese titles.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis first appeared on the PlayStation in 1999. It eventually was ported to the Dreamcast, GameCube, and PC. Resident Evil 2 (2019) is out now for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. If you haven’t played it yet, why not? EU/US
