The Resident Evil 3 Remake announcement was a surprise with the game coming even sooner. More information is slowly being rolled out about the game. Fans can expect that it won’t be the same experience as the original 1998 title.

During the last Capcom TV episode, the development team discussed more details about the upcoming remake.

Capcom confirmed that one of the minor, though tragic, characters, Dario Rosso, would again make an appearance. Initially, the protagonist Jill Valentine finds Dario in a warehouse. She tries to convince him to escape the city, but he refuses. Capcom stated that Dario would have a slightly bigger role in the remake.

It’s not a surprise that characters will again make an appearance in the remake game, but their exact roles are always unclear. Players can remember running into Robert Kendo at his gun store in Resident Evil 2. The remake gave gamers slightly more insight into this character, along with making him playable in a non-canon side story.

The Hunter Betas have been adjusted to make them more modern and probably much more terrifying. They’ll have a more significant presence in the game.

The modern upgrades also explain Jill’s new attire. Her outfit is now more suitable for escaping a crumbling city. Capcom is offering a pre-order bonus of Jill and Carlos Olivera’s original outfits.

Gamers shouldn’t play the Resident Evil 3 remake expecting the exact experience as the original. Capcom mentioned that there might be some significant story events that changed with more action-based gameplay than the original. Though Resident Evil 3 was the start of the series growing into more action-based gameplay over completing puzzles, RE3 won’t be as action-packed like the later sequels.

The “About” section of the website states: “Jill Valentine and the other surviving S.T.A.R.S. members try to make this truth known, but find that the police department itself is under Umbrella’s sway and their reports are rejected out of hand. However, soon reports of a grisly “cannibal virus” begin to surface, and vicious dogs begin roaming the streets. With the viral plague spreading through the town and to her very doorstep, Jill is determined to survive. However, unbeknownst to Jill, an extremely powerful pursuer has already been dispatched to eliminate her.”

Resident Evil 3 will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 3, 2020.
