Resident Evil 3 remake is down to fan demand, says Capcom

Resident Evil 3 remake could happen, but it's ultimately down to whether or not the fans want it, Capcom's Yoshiaki Hirabayashi has told GameWatch (translated by GearNuke).

NOW READ: Holiday Deals now live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Holiday discounts early, with many more to follow.

Quizzed on the possibility of the 1999 horror romp getting revamped, Hirabayashi-san noted that the reason we got a Resident Evil 2 remake is due to fan demand. As such, if people shout loudly enough, then they'll consider remaking Resi 3. 

This isn't the first time we've heard about a Resident Evil 3 remake. In fact, if rumours are to be believed, Capcom is already working on a revamp of the fan-favourite title. 

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis came out in 1999 was originally pitched as a spin-off title, with CODE: Veronica being the true sequel to Resident Evil 2. Capcom switched things up in the end, with Nemesis taking the '3' title to complete the trilogy on PSOne. CODE: Veronica came out on Dreamcast, continuing Claire Redfield's story from the second game. 

The game takes place 24 hours before and after Resi 2, with returning heroine Jill Valentine attempting to escape a zombie-infested Raccoon City while pursued by the titular Nemesis, an unstoppable bio-weapon hunting down the surviving members of S.T.A.R.S.

Resident Evil 2 is out now for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
