resident evil 3


Because the physical editions of RE3 are going to be delayed locally, we just took the next best thing in the demo and have been playing it again and again and again and again…

We’ve basically played it to death and got killed by Nemesis quite a number of times along the way, but we’ve found some pretty interesting things that Capcom has scattered around the demo that made our side trips more than worth our while. Check them out!

The subway you start in is chock full of goodies you may have missed on your way to rid the city of the zombie infestation. One of the first things you’ll notice are these movie posters promoting Resident Evil 3. Around 3 different posters were scattered around the subway and if you were Jill or Carlos, it must be a surreal experience seeing yourself in these. You’re a S.T.A.R., literally!


Capcom sure loves its movie posters and another one we saw is this clever design referencing Capcom’s classic 1942 shooter game and the movie Top Gun. The design of the poster is strikingly close to the Top Gun poster from way back, right down to the cast placement and design of the title!


Capcom was up to it’s wily tricks again, cleverly disguising this poster for all Mega Man fans out there. Dr. Wily and Dr. Light from the Mega Man series take center stage here and even drawn differently, the captions on the poster definitely give this one away.


On the way up to ground level we saw this map of Raccoon City. Nothing really stands out until we decided to observe it a bit more… Looking familiar? Well it should, because it’s the exact same passageway you pass through while controlling Leon or Claire on your way to the RPD in their “A” scenarios! Capcom certainly has an eye for detail and it really shows with things like this and it serves as an interesting trip down memory lane knowing this part of the map is where Leon/Claire will begin their nightmarish run to the R.P.D.

Making your way to the ground level just like Carlos said and you might find this very conspicuous dedication to the Railway. While nothing may be out of the ordinary, fans of the original Resident Evil Nemesis may notice that it looks just like the the apparatus where you need to slot in the gems to open the City Hall gates. In this case, it’s just really a display but we’re excited to see it pop up again sooner or later in the game!


Make your way to ground level and you’ll eventually find the “Toy Uncle” toy store and if you take a peek inside, you may see something very familiar if you’re a Capcom fan. Yep, it’s an American Boxart Mega Man action figure for kids! There’s even a poster outside promoting the Blue Bomber, though why he’s yellow in that Western boxart and carries a gun instead of having his trademark Mega Buster is really anyone’s guess.


Look around the toy store a bit more and you’ll find this poster. While his back his turned, the title and gold armor should already chime you in on who this guy is. Yep! It’s Arthur from Capcom’s Ghost and Goblins series. And even if you had any doubt, Arthur’s name is literally spelled out at the bottom.


Here’s one more interesting poster that we found in the toy store. While it may be a longshot, the title of this game may just be a parody of Capcom’s own Monster Hunter. Is it just us or is that an Azure Rathalos, somehow?


Across the toy store is a locked supermarket that you can gain access to later in the demo. Until that time though, care to window shop for food? There’s an appetizing poster for Umbrella Noodles and… where have we seen that kind of design before? Well no doubt the font and colors look very similar to the well-known Cup Noodle brand from Japan!


It’s still quite hard to believe that Umbrella is a Pharmaceutical Company after everything that’s happened. While Safsrin and Aqua Cure may look like any other fictional product in Resident Evil, fans of the original game may remember they were used as passwords for a certain part of the game where you had to watch a video of a product commercial. Remember that random password bit? Yep, thought so!

Oh, and see the circled numbers on the lower right? Hmm, maybe it opens some sort of safe?


In another Capcom game reference, we find this Pet Store while most fans may not know who he is, the guy to the left is actually none other than Eagle from the original Street Fighter! So aside from that Sakura reference in Resident Evil 2, looks like Eagle decided to hang the sticks and get into the pet shop business. Too bad this particular branch had to be in Raccoon City, huh?


Obviously, we can’t wait to get our grubby hands on Resident Evil 3 when it comes out on April 3. Until them, time to go back and figure in a dodging match with Nemesis and maybe find a few more easter eggs along the way!

The recently released demo of RE3 turned out really good. So good, in fact, that dataminers did what they do best and have uncovered some very interesting items in the code base. How interesting? How about some references to the Nintendo Switch?

Got your attention?

Rely on Horror reports that FluffyQuack, a modder responsible for the Fluffy Manager 500 mod for RE2, uncovered a couple of interesting code blocks that have reference to a Nintendo Switch. One code block references an auto save instance and the other, an eShop instance.

Of course this will lead to a LOT of speculation because WHY IS IT EVEN THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Before we get ahead of ourselves, we’ll have to think of it in a practical sense. RE3 is a massive game with heavy graphical requirements. That said, if a Switch port is even feasible to start with, expect it to be super scaled down, similar to The Witcher 3. It’ll take a feat of engineering genius, but it could probably be done.

It could also go the way of similar titles like RE7 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, both being cloud based versions which will now rely mostly on bandwidth over actual hardware power.

We’re not saying that the datamined evidence points to actual upcoming projects, but it would be nice to dream, yeah? Nemesis on the go sounds pretty awesome, to be quite honest!

As announced by the Capcom Asia Facebook Page, they’ve officially announced the inevitable news of Resident Evil 3 copies facing possible delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Be advised that only Physical copies (and other packages / bonuses that come with the release) will be affected, digital copies and sales are still on schedule for April 3. As their official distributor, Datablitz will be giving us updates as they come.

[Regarding the release of Package version Resident Evil 3 in Philippines]Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,…

Square Enix have already announced that physical copies of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be delayed and now, RE3 officially takes the hit as well. Like FF7, digital will be the way to go if you want to play RE3 on day 1.

We’ll be updating you on further delays as they are officially announced.

There’s no stopping the Resident Evil hype train. Quickly following the release of the much acclaimed Resident Evil 2 remake, Resident Evil 3 is hot on its heels and with it, a lumbering and terrifying villain in the form of Nemesis.

Check out this new trailer that features Nemesis in all its glory!

As mentioned in this post by the Capcom Blog, Nemesis is a fearful opponent with some upgrades, if you will, from the Tyrant series:

“Unlike the Tyrant series and its knack for punching people, Nemesis has some combat enhancements that set it apart, making it a far more deadly foe as a result. Higher intelligence and the ability to use weapons combine to form a monster that can make its own decisions on how to approach any mission – and what weapons it will use to achieve those goals. As if that wasn’t bad enough for Jill, Nemesis also has incredible healing capabilities, making defeating it virtually impossible. No matter how many times you take Nemesis down, it gets right back up with a tentacle ready to strike.

Oh yeah. Did we mention the tentacles? Nemesis can send out these slimy appendages to strike targets from a distance, or to grab something to pull back towards it – say, a member of S.T.A.R.S. trying to escape its deadly grasp. However you decide to approach (or run from) this unrelenting creature, you’ll have to act fast if you want to survive.”

Also in the trailer are the cast of characters from the game, including spotlights on Carlos Oliveira, Nicholai Ginovaef, Mikhail Victor, Tyrell Patrick, and many more! Check out some of the screenshots below.

Barring any delays, Resident Evil 3 is scheduled to release on April 3, 2020 and if you haven’t yet, do check out your local retailers for pre-orders as that Collectors Edition is looking really tempting!

After the cover art leak a few days ago, the Resident Evil 3 Remake has now been formally announced through PlayStation’s State of Play year ender presentation. Releasing in April 3, 2020, Resident Evil 3 stars Jill Valentine and will feature graphical and gameplay improvements, utilizing the new technology at hand from their most recent games.

Check out the announcement trailer below!

As part of the release of RE3, a Collectors Edition has been spotted as well. Setting you back for $179.99, roughly around PHP9,000, the RE3 Collectors Edition is similar in contents and packaging as the RE2 Remake installment as it includes the following:

  • Standard Edition of the RE3 Game
  • Digital Soundtrack
  • Racoon City Double Sided Map
  • S.T.A.R.S Item Box Packaging
  • Collectors Artbook
  • 11″ Jill Valentine Figure

None of this would have been possible without the support of the fans for the Resident Evil series. Capcom is well aware of that and they’ve taken the time to give out a special message to accompany the announcement:

As another twist, Project Resistance, the once standalone multiplayer title, is now included as the multiplayer mode for Resident Evil 3. In my opinion, Capcom felt that the feedback from Project Resistance may not have been as good as they had hoped for and thus bundled it in with RE3. It’s actually a pretty smart move because all of a sudden, EVERYBODY will now have access to Resistance and will at least get to try it out, maybe even be hyped for it simply because it’s part of the RE3 package.

If you can’t get enough of the news, check out more RE3 screenshots below to tide you over.

Resident Evil 3 Remake will be available on April 3, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

The title says it all as the once rumored RE3 remake may have actually leaked days before its supposed announcement at the Game Awards. Gamstat, which tracks everything added to the PlayStation store, has some interesting additions, which seems to be covers for the long awaited remake and basically putting rumors to rest.

Check out the 3 cover variants below:

While these have yet to be confirmed by Capcom themselves, the hype train for the remake is full speed ever since the success the RE2 remake has received. It’s not hard to believe that this fan favorite is far off since the RE2 remake already holds possibly the updated engine and assets that can be reused to bring this installment to life.

We know you’ll be picking this up when it releases, as shall we!

According to Spawn Wave and VGC, Capcom’s next remake is well underway and will release in 2020. What game? Well it’s another fan favorite and something a LOT of people are definitely wanting to see.

That’s right folks, it’s believed that Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is up next on the remake plate for Capcom. Take this news with a huge grain of salt since we have not received any word from Capcom YET but Spawn Wave has had a bit of good history with leaks, as they reported Elden Ring before it was officially announced.

Resident Evil 2 remake was met with rave reviews, even bagging multiple nominations in this year’s Game Awards including Game of the Year. Here’s hoping that this rumor is true and is delivered with the same care that Resident Evil 2 remake experienced!
