You can read our Resident Evil 3 preview detailing our impressions about how the game is shaping up so far. Capcom also confirmed a demo will release shortly before the game comes out.

Resident Evil 3 is real. After a bout of rumors and leaks, the Resident Evil 3 remake was officially announced during Sony’s final State of Play presentation of 2019. The game is, obviously, a remake of Capcom’s Resident Evil 3: Nemesis from 1999, and it’s coming packaged with another game too–which producers Masachika Kawata and Peter Fabiano spoke more about following the trailer reveal.

It’s crazy to think that a remake for Resident Evil 3 is coming so soon, but apparently Capcom always knew it wanted to revisit the classic game for a while–as long as Resident Evil 2, it seems.

Announcement, Reveal, And Character Trailer

Rumors of a Resident Evil 3 remake began in early December 2019, with cover art appearing on the PlayStation Store. Since the leak occurred prior to The Game Awards, some speculated that an official announcement would be coming then.

Instead, Resident Evil 3 was announced during Sony’s State of Play presentation on December 10, 2019. Despite the rumors, it was a bit of a surprise reveal–the announcer introduced the trailer as the “unannounced campaign portion of Capcom’s Project Resistance.” Project Resistance is Capcom’s 1v4 asymmetrical multiplayer survival horror unveiled at Tokyo Game Show 2019, but with no ties to Resident Evil 3 at the time. Well, surprise–Resistance is coming packaged with RE3.
