Capcom revealed new details on the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 3 in this week’s Famitsu magazine, through an interview with Producers Masachika Kawata and Peter J. Fabiano. Here are the biggest points brought up in the interview.

In a nutshell, Resident Evil 3 is about showing the beautifulness and strength of Jill Valentine, and the dread of the Nemesis. While Jill’s design has changed a bit to fit with how the game is more action-oriented than the original, the team kept in mind she’s one of the most popular protagonists of the series and made sure to not change her image too much. Carlos looks different too, but he still has the same hot-blooded personality. If you miss the original designs, they’re included as preorder bonuses DLC for the game.


Next, we also learned via the Famitsu interview that Resident Evil 3‘s development is pretty much complete. Masachika Kawata promised the game definitely won’t be delayed from its April 2020 release. Capcom is currently handling the final adjustments of the game, and these are nearly done too, at around 90%.

This REmake will overall be more action-oriented than Resident Evil 2 Remake, all while keeping the charm of the series. The story in RE3 will be starting before the beginning of RE2 and end after its ending. RE3 will also have more changes compared to its original game than what Capcom did with RE2.

Resident Evil 3 was officially announced in early December with a first trailer. The game also has a nice limited edition and here are the first details and screenshots. Some Nemesis teasers were also added to the RE2 demo, and the full game is over 5 million copies sold.

Resident Evil 3 and its multiplayer mode Resident Evil Resistance are coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on April 3, 2020. You can preorder the game on Amazon.
