Capcom Will Remake Resident Evil 3: Nemesis If Fans Demand It
With RE2 Remake having already sold 3 million units, it's likely we'll be seeing  Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Re-imagined in the near future.

Following what can only be described as a run-away success after the launch of Resident Evil 2, having sold three million copies and sitting above 90% on Metacritic, Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi has hinted a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake could be possible.

In an interview with the Japan based games and technology site, GameWatch, Producer of the sleeper hit remake of Resident Evil 2, Yoshiaki Hirabayashi hinted that a remake for the next instalment in the series could well be a possibility if fans wanted it.

Hirabayashi went on to explain why Capcom had decided to begin working on Resident Evil 2, 21 years after its initial release in 1998. He states the main motivator was fan feedback, as fans of the series had been vocal in wanting the title remade in the modern day with modern day technology.

From this interview GearNuke deduced:
"They couldn’t possibly remake Resident Evil 3 without the fans’ permission, so if players really enjoy the remake of Resident Evil 2 and voice their enthusiasm then we could use that as a good indicator."
Seeing as the original RE2 was followed rather quickly by Nemesis releasing in 1999, with the development process sped up greatly through the recycling of assets and models used in the previous game, it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine Capcom using the same tactic in the modern day. In the mean time however, Capcom have also announced that they'll be releasing free DLC for Resident Evil 2, focusing on the stories of new characters and new locations, for players to sink their teeth into.

If Capcom sticks to the history books, we could see Resident Evil Nemesis skulking onto our screens as early as a years time.But with rumours of Biohazard 8 also in production, we could see more development time being spent here, as opposed to remastering projects.
