It’s official: Capcom is releasing a remake of Resident Evil 3 next year. Sony confirmed the news during today’s State of Play stream, where it unveiled the first footage of the rumored remake and announced its release date: April 3, 2020.
The announcement trailer, which you can watch below, gives us our first glimpse at this reimagined version of the classic horror game. The video showcases protagonist Jill Valentine’s new look as she runs through a burning building from antagonist Nemesis. Much like this year’s critically acclaimed Resident Evil 2, the Resident Evil 3 remake forgoes the fixed camera angles of the original for a third-person, over-the-shoulder viewpoint.
Following the reveal, Capcom released a second Resident Evil 3 remake trailer, this one featuring commentary from producers Masachika Kawata and Peter Fabiano. The developers give an overview of the game and showcase some more gameplay footage. The trailer also provides a new look at the asymmetrical multiplayer experience Resident Evil Resistance, which is being included in the Resident Evil 3 remake. You can watch that trailer below.
The Resident Evil 3 remake is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Those who pre-order the title ahead of its release date will receive the exclusive Classic Costume Pack, which features the original design for Jill Valentine and hairstyle for Carlos Oliveira, as a bonus. Capcom is also releasing a $180 Collector’s edition of the game that includes a handful of physical bonuses, such as a Jill Valentine statue and hardcover art book.
