Following a string of rumors over the past few months, the rumors of an enhanced edition of Resident Evil 3 Remake reach another milestone with a host of updates for the game’s Steam DB page. This has lead many to speculate of a new edition of the game in the works akin to the Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition or the more recent Death Stranding Director’s Cut.
It can likely be assumed that these updates could be meant for replacing file branching for compatibility, either that or, as you can probably guess, a new edition for the game. It would be far-fetched to assume a new edition from this alone but it has to be mentioned the Resident Evil 3 Remake rumor mill has been churning endlessly for about half a year at this point. With all sorts of leaks of dubious credibility, this string of updates over the past months however has been the biggest definite proof that can be presented so far of the so-called Resident Evil 3 Nemesis Edition.
Expectations for Resident Evil 3 Remake have been particularly high due to the game’s underwhelming launch. The game cut a disappointing amount of content from the original PS1 release and the additions it did add were largely lackluster to say the least. The removal of some of the original levels as well as the negating the titular Nemesis to a series of boss fights and set pieces were just some of the reasons why the game was considered a disappointment by fans of the series.
Even now we can only say that the rumors for this release be taken with a grain of salt, as there have been no official statement or hints from CAPCOM about the release of an expanded edition of Resident Evil 3.
Update: Following this, CAPCOM has also just mentioned in a report that Resident Evil 3 Remake was considered to be a hit for the company, and that there are free additional DLC planned for both Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise. It would be nice to see if Village gets the same support that RE7 got with its fantastic DLC content.
