New Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Concept Art Revealed About His Origins

by Liana Ruppert

With the Resident Evil 2 remake still performing incredibly well sales-wise, the excitement for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is beyond real. There’s a lot of reasons to be hyped but Capcom is taking a break from trailers, instead showing off some incredible concept art about how Nemesis came to be and what inspired his creation. 

“Nemesis’ name derived from the Greek goddess of Vengeance,” shares Capcom in a new tweet revealing the stunning concept art: 

There’s gore, there is intrigue, this is exactly why Capcom has been on a roll lately – they know what fans want and they know how to give us what we don’t know we want. I don’t know about you, but this Resident Evil 3: Nemesis concept art is pretty dope!

We’ll be able to see the nuance surrounding this concept art when Resident Evil 3: Nemesis drops on April 3. For more about the upcoming remake: 

“Witness the climactic events of Raccoon City in a completely reimagined Resident Evil 3. This highly demanded follow-up in the 94 million unit selling franchise comes on the heels of the award-winning Resident Evil 2, and completes the Raccoon City story arc. Resident Evil 3 will also include the online 4vs1 asymmetric multiplayer experience Resident Evil Resistance when it releases on April 3, 2020 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and Steam. In Resident Evil 3, S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine, one of video games’ most iconic heroines, flees a city being consumed by zombies and other horrifying creatures. Built with Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 3 uses modernized gameplay to combine action with classic survival horror in vivid high-definition. Jill’s harrowing experiences in Resident Evil 3 take place in the nightmarish hours leading up to and following the events in Resident Evil 2, shedding new light on the plight of Raccoon City’s residents. Every hope of escape is cut off by another star in the Resident Evil franchise: the towering Bio Organic Weapon Nemesis. This brutal yet intelligent monstrosity uses an arsenal of high-powered weaponry to indiscriminately eliminate any surviving S.T.A.R.S. members in the city – with Jill being his final target.”
