A new interview in the latest Famitsu with Resident Evil 3 producers Peter Fabiano and Masachika Kawata reveals that the game will have more changed elements compared to the relatively faithful Resident Evil 2, and more details. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089!]
Here are the highlights:
- There will be more changed or rearranged elements compared to Resident Evil 2.
- The master rom of the game is complete, so there likely won’t be any delays. What’s left are final adjustments, so game development is around 90% complete.
- The game (like the original) begins before 2, and ends after 2.
- Jill is one of their most popular characters. They took care to make sure she retained her image even with the design change, and the design changes was made so that she’d look more action-oriented. The original costumes for Jill and Carlos will be available as a bonus.
- Carlos looks more mature, but is still a joker who speaks casually. He’s just as hot-blooded as before.
- They haven’t revealed any gameplay yet, but they’ve focused on the action elements more during development. RE2 featured the horrific nature of zombies, while RE3 features action. Of course, it will retain its Resident Evil-like elements.
- Like RE2, the game uses a third-person behind the camera view.
- Resident Evil: Resistance will connect with RESIDENT EVIL.NET.
- In order to surprise players, they decided to cut down on the time between the announcement and the game’s release.
The Resident Evil 3 remake will launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 3, 2020. Check out more screenshots in our previous post here.
