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.

According to Biohaze, the video game developer has sent emails to RE Ambassadors based on Japan last week. Now they are seeking out members within U.S. community to recruit testers and doing the same to get some feedback.

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.

RE franchise of games have also set a track record of great commercial success by selling millions of copies worldwide each time the company releases a new installment and now that has officially amassed a whooping total of 90 million units.

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.

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.

Considered the best game in the series, Resident Evil 2 not only has some of the franchise defining moments but also some of the scariest ones. Two of the fan-favorite characters Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy made their debut through this installment as well.

Players also get to revisit the tragic tale of another beloved character Lieutenant Marvin Branagh of Raccoon City Police Department who does more than just sitting around wounded and came to save Leon's life at one point.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake?

Following a positive response for Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3, Capcom might be teasing for a Resident Evil 3 Remake!

It took three more years to come up with a trailer for Resident Evil 2 Remake project for developer/publisher company Capcom after it was initially announced back in 2015. The response upon dropping the trailer for RE2 during E3 2018 press conference was overwhelming, which almost guarantees for it being successful in advance. Keeping that in mind, is there a chance that they would be interested for a Resident Evil 3 Remake? Well, there is no reason they shouldn't anytime soon.

According to a new Tweet from official Twitter account of Resident Evil games on Friday the 13th of this July, fans are theorizing that maybe there is a recent plan of making a remake for the third game from a survival horror classic trilogy.



RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake E3 Gameplay Demo

Originally Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was meant to be a spin-off game and Capcom wanted to make Resident Evil – Code: Veronica to be the third title in the series. They planned to feature legendary mercenary of Umbrella; HUNK in the lead role and pit him in a cruise ship against hordes of human/plant hybrid bio-weapons. However, the company moved to a new decision of completing a trilogy by making RE3 set in the doomed Raccoon City and Jill Valentine to be the main hero.

Bringing a fan-favorite character like Jill actually helped players relate to the Raccoon City zombie outbreak more that started from Spencer Mansion. She is on a constant run from a monstrous yet intelligent Tyrant known as Nemesis deployed by Umbrella Corporation, who is after S.T.A.R.S. members and at several point, he chases players from one place to another like a nightmare. Despite RE3 not being that popular as its predecessor; Nemesis becomes one of the most iconic villains of the series.

Considering how Capcom entirely revamped one of their best titles, fans are hoping Resident Evil 3 would get the same makeover as a remake project. Although the Tweet has re-ignited of the most cherished dreams Resident Evil fans, it doesn't have much to go with the idea. However, it is also possible that they are subtly dropping hints and checking out reactions of players to get on-board with this project. Whatever they eventually ended up doing, we don't mind a Nemesis reboot at all.
