Resident Evil 3 Remake Mod Adds Isabelle from Animal Crossing

Isabelle Mask mod for Resident Evil 3 Remake lets Jill Valentine masquerade as Isabelle from Animal Crossing series.

Whenever a highly anticipated video game comes out on any PC gaming platform, modding community takes it upon themselves to change certain characters or aspects for fun, as we saw last year with Resident Evil 2 Remake.

What probably no one has saw coming was Isabelle from Animal Crossing being modded into newly released Resident Evil 3 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom but the end result may not be what many were expecting at all.

Often time mods are used to swap main characters with protagonist or antagonists of some other franchise and one would generally expect Isabelle to take place of Nemesis and hunting down Jill Valentine throughout Raccoon City.

However, modder Crazy Potato had a different yet simpler idea of giving Jill a mask of Animal Crossing's cheerful assistant. Her transition from ex-S.T.A.R.S. member into a carefree spirit, wandering around a zombie-infested city is hilarious.

Latest installment of Animal Crossing social simulation game series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out on March 20, same day with acclaimed first-person shooter Doom Eternal and became part of many fan-made crossovers.

Players are busy creating loads of stuff from iconic franchises in New Horizons and aspects of its own are now part of another very different genre that has nothing to do with being cutesy at all, thanks to creative ideas of Crazy Potato.

Isabelle Mask mod for Resident Evil 3 is currently available at Nexus Mods website and sized only 12.4 MB. Although watching Isabelle to get punched by Nemesis or getting bitten by zombies on-screen would be rather disturbing.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is out now on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which includes a 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer experience titled Resident Evil: Resistance that replaces fan-favorite Mercenaries Mode from 1999 original.

Resident Evil 8 Rumored to Release in 2021

Newest leak from AestheticGamer reveals that Resident Evil 8 is rumored to release next year, with themes of occultism and such.

Right after releasing first-person survival horror game Resident Evil 7, there was rumors of developer/publisher Capcom already started working on Resident Evil 8 and presumably been under active development for some time.

A newly rumored leak from reputed leaker AestheticGamer claims that Resident Evil 8 is going to be in first-person and would take long-running Resident Evil franchise to a brand-new direction when it will come out next year.

According to his newest leaks, Resident Evil 8 originally starts development as Resident Evil: Revelations 3 but it quickly became a mainline title instead when Capcom was too impressed by one of its early version and internal feedback.

Aside from first-person perspective, the game will introduce elements of occultism, sequences of hallucination and insanity with an undertone of major distrust among characters to take Resident Evil franchise to a new direction.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Leaked Enemy Details

In a latest Tweet, industry insider AestheticGamer AKA Dusk Golem has revealed some major details on RE8.


RELATED: Resident Evil and Coronavirus Outbreak Has Creepy Connection

What they actually intended for RE8 to be back then are now set aside in favor of recent changes and may be picked up later. Whether they still make it to become a numbered series entry or a spin-off is yet to be seen in future though.

Of course, any major rumor as such should be taken with a grain of salt up until official sources confirm them and in case of Dusk Golem, there is no exception either even though his leaks on Resident Evil 3 Remake were accurate in past so far.

Although Capcom didn't follow a set path of changes that was introduced in RE7 when it comes to recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 in 2019 and Resident Evil 3 in 2020, these projects were heavily lauded by critics and fans in general.

Both of these titles were overall improvement of their classic counterparts and would likely to inspire Capcom to release more remakes. It is only a matter of time that they will start working on a reimagining of Resident Evil 4 in near future.

However, recent rumors on RE8 sound really tempting and probably may even turn out to be true at some extent or in its entirety, mostly for fans that prefers any new titles of RE main series over Capcom's remakes in recent years.

All plausible indication that came out thus far suggests that next Resident Evil game will be a major game-changer in terms of mechanics that were scrapped before and may end up getting revealed very soon, probably by end of this month.
