On April 3, Resident Evil 3 saw its release across the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out our Game Luster review of the demo gameplay at the link here. This third reboot in the franchise follows on from 2019’s highly successful Resident Evil 2. The Guardian described Resident Evil 3’s remake as “a well thought-out and nicely executed modern refresh of a survival horror classic – and welcome slab of (almost) escapism to enliven our current house-bound lives.”
While there hasn’t been an official announcement, the remake trend may be set continue, with Resident Evil 4 receiving the same treatment. In the past few days, Capcom have put out a survey asking fans if they would prefer another remake or a new sequel. While Resident Evil 4 is not mentioned, it is the likely candidate alongside Resident Evil – Code: Veronica.
