Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake Lumbers From the Shadows

Images for the Resident Evil 3 remake have leaked on PSN. We don't know much about it yet, but there are a few giblets to nibble on.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is getting a remake. The game's Western and Japanese icons, as well as potential game covers, were spotted by Gamestat, a site that picks up on anything and everything new added to the back-end of PSN.

Lovingly dubbed RE3Make by fans, a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake was rumored to be in the works early this year. Rumors then intensified a few weeks ago when YouTuber SpawnWave claimed his sources set a 2020 release date for the RE3 remake. Several media outlets reported on the rumors. 

Now, the existence of the RE3 remake is essentially confirmed in all but official word from Capcom.

In a report, Eurogamer has mentioned its sources have confirmed that the images found by Gamestat are legitimate. Those sources also say that the Resident Evil 3 Remake will, indeed, release sometime in 2020.

Eurogamer's sources can typically be relied upon. For example, it's the outlet that accurately predicted the Nintendo Switch's design and specs based on its sources long before Nintendo revealed anything.

The images found in the back-end of PSN show a remodeled Jill Valentine, sporting a much more survival-oriented outfit than she had in the original. Carlos Oliveira of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, makes an appearance too, along with his fantastic hair.

The big attraction is Nemesis itself. As of now, the big bad doesn't really doesn't look much different from its original design, save for the obvious HD upgrade to its charming visage.

What other changes RE3Make might bring is still unknown. However, if it's anything like Resident Evil 2's remake from earlier this year, then we can expect an excellent mix of nostalgia and modernized gameplay. Which is good, because outrunning Nemesis with tank controls sucks.
