Resident Evil 3 Remake, which was officially announced in the first half of December last year, is expected to reach PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users on April 3. Everything seems to indicate that it will happen, and developers are unlikely to encounter any major problems that would change the release date until then. In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Siliconer), Masao Kawada and Peter J. Fabiano from Capcom confirmed that the new version of Resident Evil 3 is 90 percent ready and is in the final stage of work, consisting mainly of polishing all elements of the game and eliminating bugs.
Both gentlemen also shared some other facts and insights into the game. While the main theme of Resident Evil 2 was to show the fear of the undead, Resident Evil 3 will put more emphasis on action and elements of escaping the threat represented by the title monster, Nemesis. History and gameplay will mostly stick to the formula of the original game. However, their construction will be slightly modified, as well as enriched with many new elements (there is to be much more of them than in the new Resident Evil 2), which will surprise and make the fun more attractive for veterans.
The creators are well aware of the popularity of Jill Valentine, so they took a careful look at her new image, which resulted in the choice of a much more comfortable and practical costume to make it easier for her to fight her opponents and survive in difficult conditions. However, fans of the original design of the heroine will be able to choose that skin as well. However, the second protagonist of the title, Carlos Oliveira, will undergo a much deeper visual transformation. Apart from the new design, Capcom changed his personality a bit and remodeled the associated plot background. The developers also mentioned a bit about the multiplayer mode of the game, titled Resident Evil: Resistance. They confirmed that it is created completely independently of the base game and is not connected with its plot.
