Capcom never released any info about the development of a Resident Evil 3 Remake, but this week Resident Evil 3 Remake cover artwork has been leaked online which proves the game is actually in works..
“The cover art, which Eurogamer sources have confirmed to be the real deal, was spotted on Gamstat (via ResetEra). Gamstat tracks additions to PlayStation Network, and on it can be seen cover art for the Japanese and international versions of Resident Evil 3 Remake.”
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was originally released back in 1999 for the PlayStation, PC, Dreamcast, and GameCube. “Originally planned as a spin-off featuring a different protagonist, Resident Evil 3 was designed to have more action-oriented gameplay than earlier Resident Evil games. It features a greater number of enemies and introduces the Nemesis monster, which periodically pursues the player. Followed by a major marketing campaign, Resident Evil 3 received positive reviews and sold more than three million copies worldwide. Critics praised the game’s detailed graphics and the Nemesis as an terrifying villain, but some criticized its short time and story.”
