It would seem after much speculation and rumors, the long-anticipated Resident Evil 3 Remake announcement might be nearing close, as the official Resident Evil 3 Remake cover art for the title has leaked online.
Gamestat (via Resetera), a website that tracks the latest additions to the PlayStation Store published new images today, showcasing the cover for Resident Evil 3 Remake. There two variations, one for the Japanese release and the other for international which you can view down below.
Much like Resident Evil 2 Remake, it looks like the characters will be undergoing some design changes as shown above with both Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira. Nemesis, of course, will still be as nightmarish as we all remember him in the original release.
As to when Resident Evil 3 Remake will be announced we aren’t sure, though The Game Awards will be airing on December 13th, so chances are high we will see the official debut there. This is certainly great news, although there was never any doubt that the title would be getting a remake, especially after the massive success Capcom had with Resident Evil 2 Remake.
This certainly should excite Resident Evil fans (including us), and we will most likely see it launch sometime within the next year. Resident Evil 3 Remake will be the second Resident Evil title announced this year, with the other being an online-focused title called Resident Evil: Resistance. While Resident Evil: Resistance has already received quite a bit of negativity due to being so multiplayer focus, in the least, we now have something to be really excited for.
We’ll be sure to keep you all posted on any new development as they come, and hopefully, Resident Evil 3 Remake will see a debut trailer at this year’s Game Awards. Be on the lookout for our coverage next week as winners and announcements are revealed, and be sure to visit us later as we pick out top games this year to compete for Game of the Year.
