Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked And Its Awesome!
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis cover art has leaked.
The cover art comes from Gamstat, which follows additions to the PlayStation Network. Two versions of the game appear to be on the way: a vanilla version and a “Z version.” Capcom didn’t confirm the leak, and probably won’t until it’s ready to show the trailer.
The cover is often taken up by the main Nemesis, the horrific nightmare creature that hunts heroine Jill Valentine across what’s left of Raccoon City. We also get to see her in her brand blue top. Her compatriot, Carlos Oliveira, also appears, sporting shaggy hair that makes Leon’s stupid 90s haircut look absolutely suave.
We know nothing whatsoever about the game beyond this cover art and the persistent rumors, but honestly… Capcom wouldn’t have to do much. While Jill and Carlos are more prepared and better armed than Leon and Claire, the basic goal of the game is still the same: get the heck out of Raccoon City. This time, we’re going to be pursued by a twisted zombified demon with tentacles, a rocket launcher, and a chilling growl of “S.T.A.R.S.” dogging our every step — assuming, of course, that the basic story of the remake is the same.
The last two games, in particular, have been very scary and challenging, and Resident Evil 2 remains a masterclass in how to remake a game — a “remaster class,” if you will. Resident Evil 3 is both more combat-oriented and more direct than its predecessor, and Jill sees more of the city than Leon and Claire do. If the remake stays true to that original game, I expect to see a game that’s a more closer to RE4 in action than RE2.
Considering RE2 Remake came out about 6-7 months after the first footage was shown at E3, it might not be too long until we see RE3. The original versions of REs 2 & 3 were released about a year-and-a-half from each other and Capcom will make me a very happy zombie slayer if it leads to duplicate that feat with the remakes.
