Hot off the heels of its excellent Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom on Tuesday revealed that its reboot of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis will land on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on April 3, 2020.

The announcement came as part of Sony’s State of Play stream on Tuesday.

Resident Evil was one of the hottest franchises around when the third installment dropped on September 22, 1999. The original was a total surprise when it crept onto the scene in 1996 but by the time its successor landed in 1998, fans had a much better idea of what to expect.

The third installment utilized familiar elements like 3D models over pre-rendered backgrounds and unique, fixed camera angles but amped things up with more enemies and the namesake creature, the Nemesis.

Those in North America will have the opportunity to pick up a special Resident Evil 3 Collector’s Edition. Available exclusively from GameStop for $179.99, this bundle includes an 11-inch Jill Valentine statue, a special S.T.A.R.S. item box, a collector’s art book, a digital album soundtrack, a double-sided map of Raccoon City and of course, the game itself.

More details will be shared in the coming weeks, we’re told.

How does RE2 compare to RE2? Harder, scarier? Haven't played RE2 yet, but I did finally get it in the last STEAM sale.
