Resident Evil 3 is indeed real and it’s set to launch in April.
Following its leaking on the PlayStation Store last week, Capcom today formally announced the remake of Resident Evil 3 during PlayStation’s State of Play live stream.
Resident Evil 3 was revealed via a new trailer during the stream which showed off the game’s iconic characters of Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira once again in the shattered remains of Raccoon City. We also get a very brief look at Nemesis, the game’s infamous antagonist, at the very end of the trailer, and he looks like he’s going to be as horrifying as ever. The game’s presentation and look are also very reminiscent of Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2, which shouldn’t be a surprise given that it only launched back in January of this year. There are also a handful of first-person sequences seen throughout the trailer, but as of this writing, it’s uncertain if the game will contain any aspects that take place from this point of view.
Perhaps the best news of all with this Resident Evil 3 announcement is that the game is releasing very, very soon. Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 3 will be launching on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 3, 2020. In addition, the multiplayer game Project Resistance which also takes place in the Resident Evil universe will be coming bundled with RE3 for free. While I’m sure many would have bought Resident Evil 3 on its own, it’s cool to see this multiplayer experience bundled in with the game.
