Resident Evil 3 Trailer Gameplay

Resident Evil 3 Trailer is a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, a survival horror video game released for the PlayStation in 1999, followed by releases for Microsoft Windows and Sega Dreamcast in 2000, and Nintendo GameCube in 2003. Unlike the original, which uses tank controls and fixed camera angles, the remake features third-person shooter gameplay similar to the 2019 Resident Evil 2 remake. In the beginning of the game, the player briefly controls Jill in the first person perspective, similar to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

Resident Evil 3 Trailer also includes an online multiplayer mode, Resident Evil: Resistance, which puts a team of four players against a “mastermind” who can create traps, enemies, and other hazards. On the survivors team, players can control original characters Valerie Harmon, January Van Sant, Tyrone Henry, Samuel Jordan, Martin Sandwich, and Becca Woolett, in addition to Jill. Featured as the playable masterminds are Annette Birkin from Resident Evil 2, original character Daniel Fabron, Alex Wesker from Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Ozwell E. Spencer from Resident Evil 5, and Nicholai Ginovaef from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

Resident Evil 3 Trailer Development

Resident Evil 3 Trailer was under development for approximately three years prior to its announcement in 2019. Development was handled by Capcom with assistance from its subsidiary K2 Inc, and from external companies Redworks and M-Two, the latter being founded by former PlatinumGames CEO Tatsuya Minami. The game was created using the RE Engine that was used in Resident Evil 7Devil May Cry 5 and the Resident Evil 2 remake. The multiplayer mode, Resident Evil: Resistance, was developed externally by NeoBards Entertainment and was previously announced as a separate game, Project Resistance.

Producers Masachika Kawata and Peter Fabiano said the team tried to honor the more action-oriented approach of the original game. They altered character designs accordingly, with Jill wearing more practical apparel and Carlos Oliveira being “more rough around the edges”. Nemesis, one of the central aspects of the game, was redesigned and given new ways to track down players compared to the Tyrant from Resident Evil 2.

In terms of its visual design, Fabiano mentioned that art director Yonghee Cho wanted to make Nemesis feel like he could fit in the reimagined and photorealistic Raccoon City and should feel like a prototype model, while adding that the development team wanted to give players the feeling that they were constantly being pursued by a relentless and agile bioweapon by striking a balance between having players feel anxious and also giving them periods of respite.

Resident Evil 3 Trailer Release

Resident Evil 3 Trailer was announced during an online PlayStation presentation in December 2019, and was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 3, 2020. A collector’s edition was made available for the console versions and features a Jill Valentine figure, hardcover art book, Raccoon City map poster, and two-disc soundtrack. A demo of the game was released on March 19, 2020, with a Resident Evil: Resistance beta released on March 27.

Resident Evil 3 Trailer received “generally favorable” reviews, according to review aggregator website Metacritic. It was praised for its graphics, sound, gameplay, and fast-paced horror. Kotaku gave the game a positive review, calling it “an intense and confidently executed Resident Evil experience.” IGN gave it 9/10 and said it was as strong as the Resident Evil 2 remake.

GameSpot says that the game starts well but could not sustain it. PC Gamer gave the game a 58/100, saying: “It’s ultimately an extremely shallow game, with lavish production values failing to mask just how rushed and unambitious it feels.” Eurogamer also criticized the short length, saying “all this – the pacing, the progression, the action and Nemesis’ design, contributes to the feeling the Resident Evil 3 remake is over too soon”. The Verge gave the game a positive review but noted the short length, saying that it was fun while it lasted.

The PlayStation 4 version sold 189,490 copies in its first week on sale in Japan, making it the second-bestselling retail game of the week there. It shipped over two million copies within its first five days of release, around half of which were digital sales.
