After the success of Resident Evil 2, Capcom could be planning to remake Resident Evil 3 next

Resident Evil 3 was released to a warm welcome back in 2001, even if it wasn’t a true sequel to the smash hit that Resident Evil 2 was. It starred series icon Jill Valentine and was also set in Raccoon City. It also introduced the fearsome Nemesis monster, a hideous creature which followed Valentine around the city, and which also featured in the great Resident Evil: Apocalypse movie.

That game is looking a bit long in the tooth now, something that makes sense taking into account it hit the original PlayStation console almost two decades ago. But taking into account how well-received this year’s Resident Evil 2 remake has been, the idea of remaking part 3 surely must have crossed Capcom’s mind…

And Resident Evil 2 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi seemed warm to the idea in an interview with Game.Watch (via VG247) at the Taipei Game Show 2018 last month, essentially saying that fan petitions and feedback would be key for a Resident Evil 3 remake to happen.

Hirabayashi pointed out that Capcom only put out the Resident Evil 2 remake after fans had been demanding it for years, so it clearly will take a lot of prompting from Resident Evil fans before Capcom remasters Resident Evil 3. Although clearly the idea must be in the Japanese company’s mind after the blockbuster success Resident Evil 2 has enjoyed so far in 2019…

So, what do you think? Should Capcom keep remaking its Resident Evil games and Resident Evil 3 in particular or focus on delivering something new instead? Be sure to sound off in the comments below.
