We've got our first full look at Jill Valentine in the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake, but not everybody is happy about it. As is with anything out on the internet, there are people that seem quite angry at the reenvisioning of our beloved Jill, though it wasn't all bad feedback thankfully.
During PlayStation's final State of Play showcase for 2019, Capcom revealed the long-rumored Resident Evil 3 remake. Not only does the latest play on nostalgia come with Project Resistance, it also offers a fresh new look for some of our favorite characters. The biggest difference? Jill. And it seems like it's the Claire and Chris fiasco all over again with the divisive reactions.

Now ... the reactions. Some were thrilled, others - not so much:
Wow the new Jill Valentine looks bad. Glad Capcom included the classic outfit but it doesn't fix that awful face. They shoulda stuck with Julia Voth.— Rainwithinsmoke (@Rainwithinsmok3) December 10, 2019
I don't like the new face of Jill Valentine in RE3, looks too different, not the kind of face I have associated with her all these years— sing for me ♫ (@xuxurla) December 10, 2019
I really don't like the design of Jill Valentine for the RE3 Remake.— Terry / Artur 🦎🦎 @ ? (@_Terrific_Terry) December 4, 2019
I've been expecting a version that looks closer to the RE3 costume in Resident Evil HD, but y'know, improved by the new Engine.
But this... I'm sorry, I just don't like it.
Still hyped for the game tho. pic.twitter.com/m2aVFEsm3Y
Many likened her new look to that of Milla Jovovich, the actress that brought Alice to life in the Resident Evil films. Others said the new look was an incredible pivot, while the other side of the reactionary spectrum feel it feels too different to be Jill.
We'll be able to see her new look for ourselves when the Resident Evil 3 remake makes its grand debut on April 3, 2020.
