[Update #2]: Jill Valentine will be heading over to Resident Evil Resistance on April 17, 2020.

[Update]: Resident Evil 3 and its companion Resident Evil 3 Resistance have been released, though sadly they don't seem to have lived up to the high standards set by Resident Evil 2.

Capcom's Resident Evil 3 is set to arrive this April 3rd, bringing with it a remastered version of the 1999 horror classic. While it won't follow in exactly the same footsteps as the original, the recently released demo has shown it to be a remarkably faithful adaptation, so I must admit I have incredibly high hopes for Resident Evil 3.

Whether that optimism will come to bite me later on, that still remains to be seen, but the newly posted and Jill focused preview is certainly pointing towards a positive direction. Have a gander, you'll see what I mean:

The grotesque new form aside, I really do wonder how this Nemesis will fit the modernized gameplay in Resident Evil 3. Even in the demo he has proven himself to be an absolute menace to deal with, and he didn't even have any weapons! So how in the world does one stop him when he whips out a flamethrower or starts chasing you on all-fours? I don't know what the answer to that question is, but it'll certainly be an interesting one!

You can learn more about Resident Evil 3, as well as check out the demo, by hopping over to Steam. Have fun!
