Capcom’s highly anticipated Resident Evil 3 Remake has just gotten a new trailer. This marks the second bit of footage we’re seeing of RE3 Remake, which was announced last December during the PlayStation State of Play.
The trailer mainly focuses on Carlos and everybody’s favorite bio-weapon Nemesis. We’ve already had a look at RE3 Remake’s Nemesis via some leaked box art just before the game’s announcement, but now we’re seeing him ‘in the flesh’, pardon the pun.
He’s not just a pretty face either: this version of the S.T.A.R.S-hating monster makes use of a flamethrower and seems to enjoy being hit by speeding vehicles. I’m sure this is just a taste of what’s in store for us during the nightmare, considering Nemesis wields a plethora of weapons in the original game, such a rocket launcher and of course, his very own purple tentacles.
We also get a little peek at some gameplay. Small snippets that show our two heroes blasting zombies as well as our first look at the dreaded Hunter enemy in-engine. The gameplay, as predicted, looks very similar to that of Resident Evil 2 Remake, including the way zombies flail and groan as you pack them full of bullets. It’s gonna be interesting to see how players will deal with the cramped streets of Raccoon City while chased by an unkillable beast with an assumedly juiced-up version of Mr. X’s A.I.
Here’s hoping they keep the choice system from the original intact too, as it’s widely considered to be a big factor in Resident Evil 3’s replay value. Based on the trailer and marketing, it also seems like Carlos will play a more central role in the story. Not a bad thing, considering you’ll get to look at his beautiful hair as you try and survive.
Don’t forget also we’ll be getting the multiplayer mode known as Project Resistance with RE3 Remake. Project Resistance was originally announced back in September and has been described as a “team-based survival horror experience” wherein players take control of both monsters and survivors and battle it out.
Resident Evil 3 Remake is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 3, 2020. How do you think it’s shaping up? Let us know down in the comments.
