Capcom couldn't remove everything from the demo's files.

Japanese developer and publisher Capcom is currently working on Resident Evil 3's remake of 1999's original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. The community was instantly on the edge of their seat since the announcement during Sony's online PlayStation briefing back in December last year. Luckily, we received a demo yesterday, March 19th, to ease the wait on those eager to get their hands on the title. The majority of the reception was positive, praising Capcom's work on the title.

However, with every demo for an anticipated title, data miners are ready to jump on its files to comb through it for any potential leaks on the full game's potential downloadable content, new characters, new locations, and such. The studio was careful to remove most weapons, items, enemies, and location lists to avoid this kind of leaks.

Some of the information revealed the different difficulties and a New Game+ mode included in the game's files. Players will get to choose between "Assist Mode", "Normal Mode", "Hard Mode", and "Super Hard Mode". Assist mode lets you go through Resident Evil 3 with auto-regenerating health during critical strikes, auto-aim turned on, enemies inflict less damage, gunpowder gives you more ammo, and you will enjoy a free assault rifle to use at all times.

As for New Game+, it is mentioned several times in the Menu UI files and will unlock once you complete the title on any difficulty at least once. The New Game+ option brings several changes to your Resident Evil 3's second playthrough, alongside a new ending for players to enjoy. Not only that, the list of character models found in the files featured the usual names you would expect, but there were two scrubbed characters as well as two names we never saw before. Here is the list of characters discovered:

  • Carlos Oliveira
  • Claire Redfield
  • Jill Valentine
  • Nicholai Ginovaef
  • Mikhail Victor
  • [Redacted Scrubbed Character]
  • Brad Vickers
  • Tyrell Patrick
  • Murphy Seeker
  • Dario Rosso
  • Amy Lee
  • Nathaniel Byrd
  • [Redacted Scrubbed Character]
  • Marvin Branagh
  • Brian Irons
  • Ben Bertolucci
  • Robert Kendo

Resident Evil 3's remake is scheduled to release on April 3rd for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Make sure to check out FluffyQuack's video for more information on what the files contain and hint towards.

What are you most excited about from the data mining leaks? Keep in mind none of these are confirmed and there is enough time for the developer to change or scrap certain files. Let us know your thoughts and if you intend to pick Resident Evil 3 on release.
