Resident Evil 3 trailer shows what a pain in the ass Nemesis will be

New, 8 comments

Get in here if you like being relentlessly chased by unkillable stalkers

If you played last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake, you’re probably still recovering from the trauma of being chased down by the Tyrant (aka Mr. X) and occasionally being punched to death by that mountain of a mutated man. Well, friend, the Nemesis, as seen in a new trailer for Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 remake, is here to inform you that he will be much more of a massive pain in your ass.

Nemesis, a new strain of the bioweapon known as the Tyrant T-Type, isn’t just strong and nigh invulnerable — he can also wield weapons, like a humongous flamethrower and a laser-guided rocket launcher. It’s all just ... too much. Worse, he’s got some built-in weaponry in the form of a stretchy tentacle that can rudely attack our hero, Jill Valentine.

You can see some terrifying new Nemesis gameplay in the new Resident Evil 3 remake trailer above. That video also highlights the game’s other heroes: Brad Vickers, surviving STARS member of the Mansion Incident from the original Resident Evil and Carlos Oliveira (the game’s other playable character), a member of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service. Also appearing are Mikhail Victor, Nicholai Ginovaef, Tyrell Patrick, and Murphy Seeker, Carlos’ fellow UBCS soldiers.

Resident Evil 3 will be released on April 3 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. You can get a better look at the game and its good guys and bad guys in the gallery below.
