After the release of Resident Evil 3 Remake which found somewhat more lukewarm opinions from enthusiasts than the excellent work done on Resident Evil 2 Remake a couple of years ago, fans are making a new take on the horror game in a more classic key, using the Unreal Engine 5.
A video presentation has been published on YouTube which has the interior of the Raccoon City Police Department. A very present element of the original game that was partly a source of frustration for the players was the angular view. Although it has been the reason for many ragequits, over the years it has become inseparable from the title.
Well, as you can also see from the video, this fan made remake of Resident Evil 3 Nemesis brings back the very same angular view. Also present is Jill Valentine herself and from what we can see the team is using the 3D model of the official remake version, but keeping his iconic clothes.
Remaining on the subject of “more classical key”, a mention goes to merit the walk by Jill, which has been made much more arcade just like she came straight out of a video game twenty years ago. A nice breath of nostalgia. In the past there was a mod that replaced the model with the face of Julia Voth, the original actress used by Capcom as a reference for the character in Resident Evil Rebirth.
Not only this, but the settings are exactly the same of the game released last year. It would seem that the guys behind this fan made work exported and then imported the same models on Unreal Engine 5 and then made the fixed-angle view to get a more faithful gaming experience to Resident Evil 3 Nemesis.
Given the use of these, it will be necessary to see if this fan made remake will bring some back into the game cut levels from the official version (like the Clock Tower). But, perhaps more troubling, if above all Capcom will allow this experiment to end before resorting to extreme actions.
