Resident Evil 3 remake producer Peter Fabiano has revealed the upcoming survival horror revamp will not feature alternate endings.
Those of you who played the original game may recall that players were able to make various choices throughout the game, which resulted in new sequences depending on what decisions you made. This also affected the ending, resulting in one of two outcomes for Jill Valentine when she escaped the city, as well as the fate of a certain villain (fans will know what I’m on about).
However, it seems that Capcom is going for a single narrative this time around, Fabinao confirmed to OPM UK. Whether this means the Live Selection choices that pop up on screen (such as the option of fighting Nemesis or running away when you first encounter him) will return or not isn’t made clear.
Resident Evil 3 Remake Does Away With Alternate Endings
Here’s the full snippet:
Fans will also remember Resident Evil 3 broke the mould by offering choices that would affect immediate routes through the game at key moments throughout the story, leading to different endings. So will the remake return with a mix of endings? “No,” confirms Fabiano.
Still, it’s not all bad news. We know that Resident Evil 3 remake will feature numerous additional content over the original 1999 title, including characters such as Brad Vickers and Dario Rosso. Jill and Carlos have been redesigned too, so check them out here.
Resident Evil 3 remake is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on April 3. The game is a full reimagining of the 1999 survival horror classic, which initially launched on PSOne and arrived on PC, Dreamcast, and GameCube a few years later.
The game takes place 24 hours before and after Resident Evil 2, with ex-S.T.A.R.S. agent Jill Valentine attempting to escape a zombie-infested Raccoon City.
However, Valentine’s mission sees her battling against not only zombies and other T-Virus monstrosities, but also a relentless new Tyrant known as the Nemesis, which has been programmed by Umbrella to hunt down and terminate all surviving S.T.A.R.S. members.
With Resident Evil 3 getting a revamp, this leaves only Resident Evil CODE: Veronica as the last pre-RE4 mainline entry yet to receive the remake treatment. Hopefully that’ll change later down the line, though.
