Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake Reportedly In Development

It seems that Capcom has paid close attention to fan interest and is looking to keep that remake train moving because according to recent reports, a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake is on the horizon for next year. 

According to the YouTube channel ‘Spawn Wave’, “inside sources” have allegedly confirmed that a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake is pretty far along in development. Since then, numerous media sites have reached out to their own sources, including our own, and it looks like this report is all but confirmed. 

It’s important to keep in mind that this is all second-hand information, so until Capcom themselves confirm the remake news – take all rumors and reports with a grain of salt.

That being said, Capcom mentioned in the past that they were interested in bringing even more remakes into this generation following the success they’ve seen so far. In fact, they even said they would be willing to remake a remake!

The studio previously sat down with the team over at Game Informer to hypothesize what their next move could possibly be. “We’ve got a lot of fans who ask for their favorite games, but we’re not going to commit to anything right now,” Director Kazunori Kadoi recently told Game Informer. “We’d like to keep our possibilities open for the future and see what makes the most sense when we come to it. We don’t want to feed just nostalgia. We want to bring [out] how people felt about the original games and if we can, reimagine it in a way so that it bridges the generation gap between people who played it 20 years ago and newcomers.”

“Certainly enough time has passed that it wouldn’t be laughable to remake the remake. I personally think that would be an interesting thing to do.”

With the Resident Evil 2 remake being a massive hit for Capcom, we can’t imagine that they would ignore such a profitable and engaging opportunity. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was a beloved entry into the franchise and seeing all of the work Capcom has done to bring Resident Evil 2 into this generation, we’re excited to see what’s next down this path of nostalgia.
