There’s no stopping the Resident Evil hype train. Quickly following the release of the much acclaimed Resident Evil 2 remake, Resident Evil 3 is hot on its heels and with it, a lumbering and terrifying villain in the form of Nemesis.
Check out this new trailer that features Nemesis in all its glory!
As mentioned in this post by the Capcom Blog, Nemesis is a fearful opponent with some upgrades, if you will, from the Tyrant series:
“Unlike the Tyrant series and its knack for punching people, Nemesis has some combat enhancements that set it apart, making it a far more deadly foe as a result. Higher intelligence and the ability to use weapons combine to form a monster that can make its own decisions on how to approach any mission – and what weapons it will use to achieve those goals. As if that wasn’t bad enough for Jill, Nemesis also has incredible healing capabilities, making defeating it virtually impossible. No matter how many times you take Nemesis down, it gets right back up with a tentacle ready to strike.
Oh yeah. Did we mention the tentacles? Nemesis can send out these slimy appendages to strike targets from a distance, or to grab something to pull back towards it – say, a member of S.T.A.R.S. trying to escape its deadly grasp. However you decide to approach (or run from) this unrelenting creature, you’ll have to act fast if you want to survive.”
Also in the trailer are the cast of characters from the game, including spotlights on Carlos Oliveira, Nicholai Ginovaef, Mikhail Victor, Tyrell Patrick, and many more! Check out some of the screenshots below.
Barring any delays, Resident Evil 3 is scheduled to release on April 3, 2020 and if you haven’t yet, do check out your local retailers for pre-orders as that Collectors Edition is looking really tempting!
