Resident Evil 3 Remake may well be next on the docket, but only if fans ask for it, according to Capcom. With the wild success and critical acclaim of Resident Evil 2 Remake, it's no wonder that Capcom seems eager to do more in this regard.
Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the Producer of Resident Evil 2 Remake, has explained what drove Capcom to remake the original Resident Evil 2 release, noting precisely what the company needs before they can begin doing the same for Nemesis.
Speaking with Game Watch - which is decidedly not a Japanese branch of Game Watcher - Hirabayashi said that Capcom remade Resident Evil 2 after over two decades because they kept hearing from fans who wanted them to do so.
Similarly, according to Hirabayashi, Capcom "cannot possibly remake Resident Evil 3 without the fans' permission", with them apparently gauging public interest in Resident Evil 3 Remake by seeing how the fans and the press react to Resident Evil 2 Remake.
It's as valid a business strategy as any, to be quite honest, and it's hard to find qualms about Capcom being as excited about the Remakes as their fans are. If the current popularity of their latest Resident Evil offering is anything to go by, we'll be seeing Resident Evil 3 - Nemesis Remake sometime down the line, to be sure.
