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.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 New Development and Plot Rumors

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.

RELATED: Resident Evil, Zero & 4 Nintendo Switch Release Date

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, Zero & 4 Nintendo Switch Release Date

Capcom announced the Nintendo Switch release date for upcoming ports of Resident Evil classic titles.

Although developer/publisher Capcom are not considering a port of newly released Resident Evil 2 Remake on Nintendo Switch anytime soon, they already planned on releasing some of the classic titles from their beloved survival horror franchise.

Resident Evil Zero came out serving as a prequel to Raccoon City mansion incident starring officer Rebecca Chambers and ex- Marine Corps member Billy Coen. A unique partner system allowed players to control both of them for solving many in-game puzzles and fight monsters.

Resident Evil 4 is the first game in the series to introduce a different type of primary enemies other than zombies, replaced the fixed camera angles with over-the-shoulder view and merged survival horror elements with third-person shooter games.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Regina from Dino Crisis

Fans of classic survival horror series Dino Crisis can now play as protagonist Regina in a new mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Modder community seems to be in love with the newly released survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom ever since it came out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as they keep releasing one mod after another.

Taking inspiration from another action-adventure survival horror franchise Dino Crisis by the same studio, a recent fan mod for RE2Make lets player take the role of Regina from the classic series in the middle of Raccoon City zombie outbreak.

Created by Shinji Mikami who is responsible for the inception of fan-favorite Resident Evil, Dino Crisis also explored aspects of survival horror but players had to deal with menacing dinosaurs instead of zombified monsters chasing after them.

Series protagonist and U.S. Special Forces operative, Regina was one of the most popular female characters in video games back in 90's when the first game of the series was released and then followed by several installments in later years.

Just like original Resident Evil 2, Dino Crisis 2 would let players switching control between Regina and her new teammate Dylan Morton. However, the series sort of died with the release of Dino Crisis 3 in 2003 for awful camera angles and lack of enemy variation.

Wanting for a revival of the series, fans have been requesting Capcom for some time to bring back Regina through the remake of the franchise and now that RE2 has met with immense success, they are hopeful that the studio can do it right if they really want.

Check out the demo of brand-new fan mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake by Crazy Potato but do not expect any dinosaurs though.

Regina mod is just a reskin of Claire Redfield with hair textures taken from Ada Wong character design of course. Appearance of Leon S. Kennedy are changed into her partner Dylan Morton but this one particularly took a little less work as it seems.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is solid statement of Capcom's capability of doing remake right but apparently; they do not have plans for a Dino Crisis reboot and the fan-made mod by Crazy Potato is the closest experience we can have to relive our nostalgia of the series.

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.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds DMX Song

Inspired from popular meme, DMX song "X Gon' Give It To Ya" has made it into Resident Evil 2 Remake via fan mod.

Not a full month has passed since the survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake came out from developer/publisher Capcom, fans from all over the world are playing the game like crazy and some are taking it to the next level with exciting new mods.

Already a series of fan-created mod is out there to tweak with in-game aspects for fun and now a popular song from 2008 of rapper DMX has made it to the game via a newly created mod that replaces theme song of a certain enemy.

Released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last month, RE2 Remake has received a few notable mod for playing as original Resident Evil character Chris Redfield, switching back to first-person perspective or a fixed camera angle like 1998 classic so far.

An independent modder known as DJPop attempted to and successfully changed the actual theme song "Black Impact" for returning villain Mr. X with "X Gon' Give It To Ya" rap song by DMX in several scenes where players would come across this monster.

After Capcom announced the remake back in 2015, they totally rebuild the game using their revolutionary RE Engine that helped creating Resident Evil 7. Series protagonist and fan favorite enemies received an overhaul in terms of AI and graphics.

One of the boss characters that returned in RE2Make is a trench coat wearing Tyrant creature T-00, going by the name of Mr. X and he has been made into a stuff of raw terror that was deployed into Raccoon City to retrieve a G-Virus sample and kill all survivors.

The moment you hear the sound of his stomping boots throughout the corridor or the hallway of R.P.D., you know that you are going to be in a whole world of trouble if you do not move immediately to hide from his sight before he locks on you.

Unlike the early rendition of the boss, 2019 remake version of Mr. X is a relentless stalker and virtually unstoppable. Even if you manage to momentarily take him down with a Flash Grenade or a couple of head-shots, he will get back to his boots right in.

Of course this doesn't assist you in killing zombies or give you some gameplay perks but the fear of encountering the character in any situation will come as less stressful than it used to be and makes him slightly less scary without nerfing his punches.

Adding DMX's "X Gon' Give It To Ya" as Mr. X theme song was originally inspired from a recently popular meme of Resident Evil 2 Remake where players were adding the track to videos of the boss character and fan communities have finally modded it into the game.

Player Beats Resident Evil 2 Remake on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

The long-awaited horror remake of Resident Evil 2 is a cakewalk for YouTuber CarcinogenSDA and here a "no-hit" walkthrough run by him.

Fans of survival horror game are having a great time with the recently released Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, a considerable number of people are failing to enjoy it because they find it too difficult.

Amidst many complain of newcomers that are unable to get past the police station or constantly getting their butt handed to them by Mr. X, we came across a playthrough of RE2 Remake by a player where he completes "Leon A" story with ease, taking no damage.

Our guy CarcinogenSDA is good at what he does and what he does is speed-running and "no-hit" walkthrough runs on a variety of video games. When it comes to Resident Evil series, he is a professional in completing the titles with an unmatched level of skills.

Going through the highest difficulty mode was to prove a point that even though tricky, it can be done. Best part of the whole experience was the inclusion of every cut-scene alongside the helpful commentary for those who need some tips.

You might want to take note on why you should shoot the knees off a zombie rather than trying to get a headshot as they do not always blow their brains out for good. The terrifying trench coat wearing Tyrant bio-weapon doesn't seem to give him any tough time either.

Another grand take from this video is masterful inventory management and using the right weapons for each enemy type. Although the entire playthrough is done on PC version, it wouldn't hurt console players can take a look as well.

So, it's time to quit whining about zombies being bullet sponges, Mr. X is giving you a hard time by being too persuasive, weapons are weak and get your ass back in the game trying to "git gud" instead, because only that would really help you other than anything.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is actually everything you want in a remake and then some more but it is also obvious that not everyone is an ace survivor who can overcome the Raccoon City outbreak like a walk in the park even on our best day and that is okay.
