Resident Evil 3 Remake coming in 2020 with Resident Evil Resistance in tow!

On the heels of the Resident Evil 2 Remake comes a remake of Resident Evil 3! However, Capcom wasn't content to just remake Resident Evil 3, they also chose to create a brand new asymmetrical 4 Vs 1 online game called Resident Evil: Resistance. Both games will ship together when they release in April of 2020. North American console players will get the chance to buy a Resident Evil 3 Collector’s Edition. The Collector's Edition comes with a physical copy of Resident Evil 3, a high quality Jill Valentine figure, a printed artbook, a Raccoon City map wall poster, and a digital Resident Evil 3 soundtrack. If you pre-order you will also receive the exclusive Classic Costume Pack which contains the original design for Jill Valentine and hairstyle for Carlos Oliveira.

Resident Evil 3 is set amidst the nightmarish outbreak of the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation. The game marks the debut of Nemesis – a towering humanoid bioweapon designed for both brutality and high-functioning intelligence – whose dogged hunt of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine made him an icon of the Resident Evil™ series. Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weaponry and wrapped in a black suit to hide his mutilated features, Nemesis will maim, pulverize or destroy any obstacle on the path to his target.

Jill’s harrowing escape takes place in the panic-stricken hours leading up to and following the events of the acclaimed best-selling Resident Evil 2. Intense combat and puzzle solving combine to deliver the heart-pounding final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse. The horrific settings from the original game and new content come to life as never before with RE Engine, previously utilized to create the acclaimed Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry™ 5 with high-definition graphics and modernized gameplay mechanics.

Complementing the action-packed single player campaign is Resident Evil Resistance, an asymmetrical 4 vs. 1 multiplayer game originally unveiled as a working title at Tokyo Game Show earlier this year. As the Mastermind behind the scenes, players can assume the role of key Resident Evil characters like Annette Birkin in a series of deadly experiments. Manipulate the environment and wield a deck of cards to place vicious creatures, set traps and weaponized security cameras to snare hapless Survivors. A first for the franchise, Masterminds can even directly control elite bioweapons like G-Birkin and Tyrant. In turn, four Survivors must effectively work together, making the most of a variety of weapons and each player’s unique special abilities, to stand a chance of escaping the experiment before time runs out.
 Judging by the screenshots provided to us the game is looking really good. I absolutely loved the RE:2 Remake so this game is looking to be a must have but of course I will hold off any recommendations until I have taken it for a test drive. Take a look at the screenshots and announcement trailer and let us know what you think of the game. Are you making plans to pick this up on day 1?
