Resident Evil 3 Demo: Every Easter Egg Found

The Resident Evil 3 demo takes place in a derelict subway, but before players are even acquainted with their undead nemeses, there’s one thing to wade through first – no, it’s not a tutorial. We’re talking about Easter eggs. The Resident Evil 3 demo is totally packed with them, as we’ve mentioned, and we’ve listed them out here.

We’ve listed out the various Easter eggs that show up in the subway level here, so let us know if you’ve spotted them yourself too!

  • Big E poster – this is a reference from the original Resident Evil 3
  • Mega Man poster – if you’re looking hard enough, you’ll also be able to find a Mega Man poster just kicking about
  • Mega Man status – if you’re looking in the Toy Uncle store window, you’ll see a Mega Man statue
  • Old Resident Evil 3 posters – there are classic versions of old Resident Evil 3 ad material plastered on the various subway walls
  • Popular movie posters – you’ll see movie posters that evoke popular films like IT and Alien on the subway station walls
  • Raccoon Toons poster – this shows up on a shop window in the Resident Evil 3 demo
  • Raccoon City clock – this appears as a reference to the clock puzzle in the 1999 Resident Evil game which players had to piece together after scouring various levels for parts
