Capcom Stream Shows Off New Resident Evil 3 Gameplay And Mechanics

If you’re like me, you’re waiting patiently for more news of the Resident Evil 3 demo to drop. Resident Evil rumors and leaks of all kinds have been dropping left and right lately, making any concrete details worth their weight in gold. While we still don’t have a solid date, on today’s Capcom TV stream we did get to see some new gameplay. The new gameplay was hosted by the Resident Evil community manager Kat “Katastrophe,” who started by stating that they hoped the stream would satisfy you until the demo is released.

The whole stream is linked above and is just over 2.5 hours long. The Resident Evil 3 bits start at around 30 minutes, with the gameplay itself starting at 42 minutes. In the gameplay, we get to see Jill fight some zombies, as well as the new dodge system that allows you to slow down time to land cinematic action shots. All in all, it’s only about 13 minutes of gameplay. It’s not much, but it does show off more of the new zombie models and physics.

Keep in mind, I have no idea if more substantial things were discussed during the stream. The entire thing is in Japanese. I don’t speak Japanese. So maybe they revealed all kinds of secrets I’m sure will be posted about in weeks to come. Still, it’s worth checking out just to see the game in action. If you do speak Japanese, let me know if anyone spoils an RE4 remake.

If you want to get your hands on the full version, you’ll have to wait until the game drops on April 3rd. Resident Evil 3 will be available on all major platforms for $60. You can click here to check out the game’s Steam store page.
