Something to look forward to: Resident Evil 2 stands out as one of the best of all times in the history of video game remakes, so it shouldn’t come as shocking to hear that Resi 3 is officially getting the same treatment.
Capcom is currently working on a reboot of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, according to the YouTube channel Spawn Wave. Eurogamer notes that the project, which is supposed to have been under production for some time, has also been heard.
Spawn Wave says that in 2020 the game will be released. As PC Gamer states, between the original Resi 2 and Resi 3 there were less than two years, which means that if Capcom were trying to respect tradition, next year would possibly see a release.
Following the success of the remake of the Resident Evil 2 that sold nearly five million copies, Capcom said it would “explore” more remakes of the back catalog of the company. Looking forward to seeing more games brought into the modern era after Resident Evil 3.
Back in July, a downloadable, fan-made version— Resident Evil 3: Seamless HD Project — added upscaled backgrounds, 3D model textures, menu elements, HR images, interactive text restored, and even manually edited game screens. It is not ideal and includes the emulator of the Dolphin GameCube, but it is a decent way to experience Resi 3 until the official remake comes in.
With Capcom focusing on Project Resistance, a Resident Evil series multiplayer spin-off, it might be a while before we hear anything official about the resident Evil 3 remake from the company.
