Resident Evil 3 Remake Leaked on PlayStation Network

Shortly ahead of an awaited reveal, first look of Resident Evil 3 Remake got leaked on PlayStation Network.

Ever since long-anticipated survival horror classic title Resident Evil 2 Remake was released earlier, developer/publisher Capcom has been working on development on remake of its sequel or as it appeared according to some rumors.

There were only words of speculations and some occasional vague tease by Capcom so far but now there is finally some hard evidence. Data-miners have dug out some official covers on tracking site Gamestat that showed up at PSN.

Lead character Jill Valentine and her ally Carlos Oliveria have received a revised look along with titular antagonist character Nemesis. Two protagonists are standing on backdrop of Raccoon City while their relentless stalker is looming over it.

Both Carlos and Jill look very different in their revised form than their appearance from 1999 original game. Nemesis however, doesn't look any less scary at all and is now featured on promo unlike his predecessor Mr. X from RE2 Remake.

In past couple of weeks, reports are coming in pretty strong for an upcoming reveal of RE3 Remake, which is set for a 2020 release and scheduled to show up either at The Game Awards 2019 or Jump Festa 2020 later this month.

One of these cover art for Japanese region shows off a special edition titled "Biohazard RE: 3 Z Version". Since the cat is out of the bag already, Capcom may decide to reveal the game a little earlier than originally expected.

Given how RE2 Remake has seen immense success this year, release of Resident Evil 3 Remake was almost inevitable. This leak clearly indicates of an official confirmation that may come soon in form of a new teaser trailer anytime now.

Capcom to Announce Two New Games at Jump Festa 2020

Capcom will reportedly reveal two brand-new games at annual anime event Jump Festa 2020 in December.

Year 2019 has been exceptionally well for renowned video game developer/publisher Capcom, launching some of their most successful titles like Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion and Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Of course, they would like to keep that flow going and release more games to keep players engaged. To that, a recent rumor is suggesting that Capcom is planning to reveal two upcoming games at Jump Festa 2020 anime event.

A report on Gematsu quotes Japanese website Ryokutya2089, which claimed that Capcom plans to show four titles at annual Jump Festa 2020 event next month including MHW: Iceborne, Mega Man Zero/ZX and two unreleased games.

However, official source says that they are only going to demonstrate two of above-mentioned games. One of those reveal could very much be Resident Evil 3 Remake that YouTube channel Spawn Wave speculated to drop at The Game Awards 2019.

Both Iceborne expansion and Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection are coming out next year in January. So it really makes sense for Capcom to let players take an early preview at those games and build some hype in advance.

Jump Festa is taking place in a few weeks next month, same as The Game Awards and theory for a reveal of RE3 Remake at the latter only seems reasonable as it is one of the biggest stages for companies to announce their latest AAA-games.

Also, RE2 Remake has been shortlisted for "Game of the Year" nomination for this year at TGA. It would be an epic moment for all fans to see their favorite classic survivor horror title winning and its sequel getting announced.

Since there is no official confirmation for this rumor, they might stick to regular plan for Jump Festa and prepare for a showcase at The Game Awards 2019, or take stage at their high-profile Capcom Cup 2019 event at the same time.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Reportedly Coming in 2020

Capcom will reportedly release Resident Evil 3: Nemesis in 2020, following success of Resident Evil 2 Remake.

It has been reported and rumored several times since reveal of survival horror classic title Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 event that developer/publisher Capcom might be interested in a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

Reported by news outlet VGC and Spawn Wave YouTube channel, Capcom has been allegedly working on development of RE3: Nemesis remake that they are planning to release next year followed by an announcement at The Game Awards 2019.

In past, Spawn Wave has record of successfully leaking upcoming From Software release Elden Ring before official reveal at E3 2019. Besides, several other sources are reporting on the same rumor as well with a bit lesser skepticism.

Also, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi mentioned earlier that they are open to ideas of a remake for 1999 original PlayStation game if there is a significant fan-demand, which caused RE2Make a possibility and sold 4.7 million units so far.

Capcom took Friday the 13th of July in 2018 to tease fans by posting an image on Twitter of RE3 antagonist Nemesis, comparing him to notoriously relentless stalker Jason Voorhees, both chasing and haunting their victims persistently.

Then earlier this year, they mysteriously tease fans on social media by putting a shot of protagonist Claire Redfield from RE2 Remake standing next to a massive hole in a wall before arrival of Mr. X, a few months after its launch.

When Capcom was looking for RE Ambassadors within United States back in August 2019, people were hoping for confirmation on RE3 Remake but it turned out to be a brand-new Resident Evil game titled Project Resistance.

However, during Closed Beta program of this team survival multiplayer experience last month, some players started to notice Resident Evil 3 save room theme is being played in-game, which is a rather interesting nod to add for sure.

Moreover, lead character Jill Valentine and her fellow Raccoon City survivor Carlos Oliveira has briefly appeared in first trailer of the game to add more fuel to that spark of fire, having fans to speculate even harder for RE3Make.

If show host Geoff Keighley truly ends up announcing Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake at the big night of TGA 2019 next month, it is most likely to come out at some later point in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

Capcom to Recruit US Testers for New Resident Evil Game

Capcom is looking for U.S. based RE Ambassadors to test out a new Resident Evil game very soon.

We already know that developer/publisher Capcom got on board for development of a sequel to 2017 survival horror game Resident Evil 7 following release, even though it is still not clear whether or not it is called Resident Evil 8.

lately, Capcom has been sending out invitation to members of their RE Ambassadors program who are residing in United States, to test out a new Resident Evil game that is currently under early phase of development.

Interested applicants that lives in Los Angeles will be required to be free on September 20 or 21 and those from New York on September 23 or 24. However, they will not be compensated for their valued time and travel expenses.

Other requirement a participant should have is to have played at least any Resident Evil title in past aside from being a member. There is clearly no hint at if they will test out a remake of early title, a sequel to RE7 or even a spin-off.

After Resident Evil 2 Remake saw a massive opening on January 2019, fans were rallying for a follow-up with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake. Regardless, Capcom seems to be going ahead with Biohazard storyline through Resident Evil 8 for now.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake! Again!

Capcom has been teasing photos on twitter that clearly hint at a very possible remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

In an absolute knocking the ball out of the park move, developer/publisher Capcom has seen a smashing success with their recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake that took newcomers and veterans back to roots of survival horror.

Now that they have delivered fans what they have been wanting for years, the company shifts their focus to next Resident Evil game and they most probably are on board with a Resident Evil 3 Remake according to mysterious tease from social media.

While playing as either Claire Redfield or Leon Kennedy in RE2Make, players enter Raccoon City Police Department at a very early point of their journey into zombie apocalypse and come to a massive hole on a wall even before Mr. X arrives.

With Claire standing next to it, Capcom posted a photo of that wrecked wall that clearly teasing of a stalker enemy.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.

After RE2 Remake was officially revealed back at E3 2018, Capcom posted a photo of Nemesis on Twitter a month later on Friday the 13th, comparing to another stalking adversary Jason Voorhees, which led fans to believe it a tease to another remake.

Nemesis provided a unique kind of horror where protagonist character is constantly chased throughout the city blocks by an RPG-wielding unkillable monster, which is hell-bent on eradicating any and every living S.T.A.R.S. member.

According to Twitter leaks from reliable source EVIL VR back in January 2019, developers are currently working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 8 but are very much interested in delivering RE3 before going back to origin of Eveline.

Resident Evil Becomes Capcom's Best-Selling Franchise

With an overall sales number of 90 million units worldwide, Resident Evil has become Capcom's best-selling franchise.

Without any scope for doubts, Resident Evil is one of the most popular video game series that developer/publisher Capcom has ever worked on, establishing the genre of survival horror and made a hit franchise out of it over the last two decades.

When the Japanese video game developer initially started working on original Resident Evil back in 1996, they were not sure how successful their reinvention of Sweet Home would turn out to be but never expected it to be a best-seller.

The company was so impressed by its success that they started developing a sequel just after a month. Although they developed and scrapped an early version after completing 60% of the game, Resident Evil 2 eventually became an instant classic and even bigger hit.

In 2005, Capcom took a more action-oriented approach with Resident Evil 4 but after realizing how far they have moved from the core survival elements, the studio took a detour to roots of horror by launching Resident Evil 7 in 2017.

Till date, both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 remains the best-selling games of RE franchise by selling over 11 million and 8.8 million copies worldwide respectively over various platforms despite garnering mixed reactions from critics and fans.

Recently released Resident Evil 2 Remake has already shipped over 4 million physical copies and gaining critical acclaim from almost everyone, helping Capcom to surpass an impressive 90 million copies sold from its entire series and becoming their best-selling franchise.

This definitely has the developers renewed their interest with RE games with more seriousness and hopefully they will easily cross 100 million mark with the release of upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake, followed by Resident Evil 8.

Although Resident Evil games have found a larger audience on PC and modern day PlayStation and Xbox consoles, many of the classic RE titles saw release on Nintendo's handheld Game Boy Color consoles from 1998 to hybrid console Nintendo Switch.

A series of six live-action Resident Evil movies starring actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) in lead role is looking for a reboot with director Johannes Roberts and a TV series is currently in development for streaming giant Netflix.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Nemesis

A fan mod has introduced Resident Evil 3 villain Nemesis into Resident Evil 2 Remake by replacing Mr. X.

Fans of survival horror and franchise loyalists loved the newly released Resident Evil 2 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom. It has also been very popular in the fan modder community who just love to tweak the game and add various changes.

Lately, a fan mod has replaced the theme song for returning villain Mr. X with hit song "X Gon' Give It To Ya" of rapper DMX and now has entirely swapped him with the titular character Nemesis from next game in the series, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

RE2 Remake builds everything from the ground up and overhauls a lot of aspect that received warm reception of fans. One such element was re-imagining of trench coat wearing stalking Tyrant enemy Mr. X, who now relentlessly pursues players upon seeing.

This certain trait has been unique to Resident Evil 3 boss character Nemesis, who is armed with a rocket launcher and constantly chases RE3 protagonist Jill Valentine throughout Raccoon City while also seeking out any remaining S.T.A.R.S. members to dispatch.

Now that Capcom has made Mr. X an unstoppable killing machine, he acts a lot like his successor Nemesis, who will stop at nothing from completing his objective and will not go down or stay down for long no matter how much firepower you pour in.

Since they both are now almost same in nature and are based to work in Raccoon City, a new mod by user ZERO has taken things to next level by replacing Mr. X of RE2 Remake with the Nemesis to get chased by for an entire campaign.

Take a look at the modding of Nemesis into the game chasing down Claire Redfield on top of the R.P.D. building.

Of course, the modder has used a reskinned version of terrible Tyrant from RE2, which is why it looks slightly awful but the fear factor is right there in its presence and the moment you hear it saying "S.T.A.R.S." kicks the horror nostalgia right in.

After long requests from fans for years, a remake of Resident Evil 2 has finally become a reality on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players now want a remake of Resident Evil 3, which according to reports are next in line before Capcom proceeds with Resident Evil 8.

Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

According to their recent financial results, Capcom is definitely on board for more Resident Evil Remake.

Although developer/publisher Capcom took almost three years just to reveal the first look for upcoming survivor horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference after initially announcing the project in 2015, fans reaction to their effort was mostly positive despite some minor fraction of the fan-base.

The venture began with Resident Evil HD Remaster back in 2015 by releasing a high-definition version of the original game and now looks like they are going to remake more titles.

As their first quarter financial results call came out recently, they were discussing their strategy with market in a Q&A session, where they talked about Monster Hunter: World and a few other titles from their mobile game library.

They also stated that following favorable reception of RE2 Remake at E3, Capcom is thinking about exploring further with variety of properties they still have in fold, which clearly suggests more Resident Evil games will join the remake march when RE2MAKE succeeds.

It was received very well at E3, and in order to tie this first success to actual sales we are working out our promotional strategy. Further, regarding remakes and rereleases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP.

After RE2 Remake, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is arguably the most fitting title to receive the remake treatment. Partly, because it is the next most deserving game in the series to get reworked and mostly because, doing that will complete a classic trilogy of game being remade.

Besides, fans are hugely speculating RE3 to be the next in line of getting revamped when Capcom posted a photo of titular monster Nemesis on their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July.
