Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira managed to survive the Raccoon City disaster in 1998, but not before risking their lives many times against hordes of zombies and the scariest boss: Nemesis. But not even a thermobaric missile put an end to their adventures.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is perhaps the most commented game in the survival horror franchise; launched in 1999 by Capcom and released only for PlayStation, tells the survival history of the STARS (Special Tactics and Rescue Team Service) agent, Jill Valentine, who try to escape the spread of the T-virus.
When it was released, the game was recognized as advanced for its time thanks to amazing graphics, puzzles, and gameplay in general. RS 3 was then ported to Microsoft Windows and launched again in 2003 for GameCube (with unsatisfactory results), and in 2008 PlayStation 3 users were able to play it via emulation.
It seems that Capcom is trying to capitalize on the massive success of Resident Evil 3 again, taking advantage of the “remake era,” as a revamped version of the game was announced for April 3, 2020, this time available for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One. This version follows the Resident Evil 2 remake launched in 2019.
The background history will be the same: players will control agent Jill Valentine, and characters like Carlos Oliveira, Mikhail Victor, and Nikolai Zinoviev are confirmed for the game; of course, the recurring boss Nemesis, now with a renewed image, according to the preview shared by Capcom, looks scarier than ever.
The developers also confirmed that Nemesis could hunt the player in more ways, similar to Tyrant, the head of Resident Evil 2. If we trust the RE 2, the graphics of the RE 3 remake will be stunning, and players can control the camera.
As usual, the remake will focus on taking advantage of 20 years of technology, having better graphics, improving gameplay, and adding more resources like multiplayer mode, etc.
The multiplayer mode, Resident Evil: Resistance, creates a mini-survival game in which there are teams of four players against a Mastermind that can twist the scenarios, set traps, or even summon deadly bioweapons like Tyrant, all using randomly assigned cards, like a poker game with monsters.
Although Capcom hasn’t commented anything about the puzzles, this will surely play a significant role in the Resident Evil 3 remake. However, we don’t know if the same line of puzzles with elevators or complex machines will be used again, what is sure is that Jill and Carlos will face even bigger problems than the first time.
The trailer shared by Capcom shows Jill running away from Nemesis in many situations, including one in which the monster is burning all the way down. The hospital where Carlos gives Jill the antidote is shown for a few seconds, and the Nemesis flamethrower will continue to hunt the players.
Some new scenes were Jill crashes a car while Nemesis wake up is the last image before the pre-order announcements at the end of the video. Capcom has assured that the Resident Evil 3 remake is almost complete and that the release in April will not be delayed at all.
Many nostalgic players anxiously await the release of Resident Evil 3 2020 Remake to relive all the terrifying adventures escaping from Raccoon City with all the perks of 2020 technology.
