According to a recent Famitsu interview, Resident Evil fans that are excited about the upcoming remake won’t have to worry about any sort of delay before the game’s release. According to said interview, the game is 90% done, leaving the Resident Evil 3 Remake release date no longer in doubt for Capcom.
Resident Evil 3 Remake will be the third of the Resident Evil remakes that Capcom has released in the past few years, with the original Resident Evil coming out in 2015, and Resident Evil 2 coming out early last year. Resident Evil 3 is slated to come out on April 3 of this year.
Resident Evil 3 once again puts us back in the shoes of STARS member Jill Valentine in her own story of Raccoon City, where she must fight to survive while uncovering another part of the Umbrella Corporation’s conspiracies while also avoiding the Nemesis bioweapon trying to hunt down and kill every member of STARS.
Considering that Resident Evil 2 only released just last year, it’s possible that the reason 3 is coming out so soon after is because Capcom has been working on multiple Resident Evil remakes for a long time. However, it’s even more impressive since the Resident Evil 3 Remake will technically be two games in one.
While Jill Valentine’s story will be part of it, the game will also include a multiplayer component, the previously-announced Resident Evil: Resistance, which will be shipping with the story game. Since Resident Evil 2’s remake was so well-regarded, hopefully 3 and Resistance will meet similar praise.
Once again, the Resident Evil 3 Remake release date will be on April 3 of this year, releasing for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. If you want to get something of a taste for it, the Resident Evil 2 Remake’s demo has been updated, not only allowing you to explore the entirety of the Raccoon City Police Department, but also including a Resident Evil 3 easter egg.
