Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked Ahead Of Official Reveal
After multiple years of rumors, leaks, and teases, a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake has been all-but-confirmed to happen for a while now. Such a threequel has become inevitable following the scary-good success of the RE2 remake, not to mention its breakout and endlessly meme-worthy antagonist, Mr. X. However, the threequel’s next big bad Nemesis looks to be looming sooner rather than later following the leak of official cover art.
Discovered by asset-gathering website Gamestat, images pulled from the Japanese PlayStation Store appear to confirm Capcom’s long-awaited Resident Evil 3 remake as well as hint at the game’s imminent announcement. These images not only provide the first look at the game’s redesigned Jill Valentine, but also the terrifying Nemesis–the gruesome beast looking as horrific as ever for its modern-generation rampage. In addition, one of the cover artworks notably depicts a “Z Version,” suggesting a special edition of the game may be included upon release.

The aforementioned images have since been removed from the official PlayStation Store, lending to the idea that they weren’t meant to be seen just yet. As the game has yet to be listed by PlayStation (or any other storefront), an official reveal may very well be happening soon, a telling notion with the “world premiere”-heavy Game Awards gearing up for next week. However, with the surprise RE3 announcement thoroughly ruined, it’s possible Capcom may forego the high-profile proceedings and reveal the game ahead of time, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
