Gamers who played Resident Evil 3: Nemesis will remember that you will be playing as Jill Valentine. The heroic character attempts to escape the T-virus-ridden city and the relentless creature, Nemesis. Nemesis much like Mr. X in the Resident Evil 2 remake has gone through massive design upgrades. The remake offers new visuals, more content and is built on Capcom’s RE Engine that also powers Resident Evil: Biohazard, RE2 and Devil May Cry 5.

One addition that will make fans even happier is that the remake will include Resident Evil: Resistance, a 4-versus-1 survival game Capcom announced in September.
