Capcom Eager To Remake Resident Evil 3 If Fans Demand It


Way back in the late 90s, as development of Resident Evil 2 dragged on, Capcom also started development on other Resident Evil titles. Supposedly originally intended as a spinoff before series creator Shinji Mikami suggested otherwise, a partner title to Resident Evil 2 was also being made, starring Jill Valentine in the same city as Leon and Claire. Titled Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, the game was almost a supplement to Resident Evil 2 which was released just a year prior, and the two titles are closely tied together in people’s minds. When Resident Evil 2’s remake was announced, fans speculated that Resident Evil 3 is likely not far behind.

It turns out Capcom is thinking similarly, too, but is not quite ready to commit.

In an interview with Japanese website GameWatch and translated by GearNuke, Resident Evil 2 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi was asked about the possibility of Resident Evil 3 now that its predecessor has released. Hirabayashi explains that they only did Resident Evil 2 because fans had been asking for it for so long, so they need fan permission to do Resident Evil 3.

It’s a very PR answer and one that makes me suspect they have already given the project the go-ahead, but I suppose fan enthusiasm showing them that it’s the right decision can’t hurt.

Resident Evil 2 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read our review of the game right here.
