Resident Evil 3 demo verified to be ‘en route’ states Capcom



Capcom has announced that there will be a playable demo for Resident Evil 3 and it shouldn’t be long until it’s out. Considering it’s one of the most anticipated games of the year there’s been curiously little marketing activity around the Resident Evil 3 remake up until now, with the very first hands-on previews only appearing today.

Offered how well received the last remake was that’s probably not going to matter but a playable demonstration will definitely assist raise the video game’s profile and according to the tweet below it is coming. As you can see, there’s no more details than that but Capcom put a great deal of effort into the Resident Evil 2 demonstration, which initially might just be played as soon as, for simply 30 minutes.

There’s no indicator of whether the Resident Evil 3 demo will also be a ‘one-shot’ however that limitation was gotten rid of from the first one once Resident Evil 2 was launched. Capcom even went to the problem of adding a little Easter egg to the demonstration back in December, where you might hear Nemesis from Resident Evil 3 shouting ‘STARS!’ outside.

So little has been learnt about Resident Evil 3 until now, that it’s only simply been revealed that the video game is being co-developed by a new studio set up only a year earlier and run by ex-Platinum Games CEO Tatsuya Minami. According to VGC the business is called M-Two and is staffed by several ex-Capcom and Platinum designers. However a number of other studios are likewise included, including Capcom subsidiary K2 and Red Works– with the latter led by Platinum and Capcom veteran Kiyohiko Sakata, who apparently is working as Resident Evil 3 remake’s director.

It’s definitely unusual to only learn who a game’s director is at the eleventh hour like this, especially as the developers of Resident Evil 2’s remake mored than happy to do interviews before the release of their video game. There’s no idea that Capcom is attempting to conceal anything though, as they never show which internal studios are making their games and don’t appear to consider that sort of info essential.

Resident Evil 3 will be launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on 3 April.
