Capcom's producer for the Resident Evil 2 Remake says fans must demand a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake for it to happen.

Resident Evil 2 Remake producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi has teased the possibility of Capcom remaking Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. In an interview with GameWatch, GearNuke reports that Hirabayashi said fans must demand a Nemesis remake for Capcom to consider recreating the nightmare.

Released on the original PlayStation in 1999, Nemesis used many of the mechanics and assets from Resident Evil 2 to maintain similar locales such as the Raccoon City Police Department. Even Nemesis himself was essentially an upgraded version of Mr. X (a.k.a. the Tyrant). So, with the original Nemesis being an expansion of RE2 in the same area, it’s not unreasonable for Capcom to remake the third instalment with the assets used for the Resident Evil 2 Remake.

The Resident Evil 2 Remake has been Capcom’s biggest launch since Resident Evil 7. While I would like Capcom to release a new and original entry that experiments with the series similar to the first-person perspective with the Pinkertons, a Nemesis remake would also be welcomed (especially considering it may already be in development).

Leon and Claire’s war against zombies in the Raccoon City Police Department and underground sewers is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While Capcom have not ruled out adding more DLC, they have rejected the idea of implementing co-op.
