Resident Evil has had plenty of official development special treatment over the years. Ever since the video game franchise came out for the original PlayStation, the series continues to see new main installments, spin-offs to now complete remakes. For instance, Resident Evil, the original title, has had remakes and remastered editions launch for the latest platforms and just this year we got the remake of Resident Evil 2. Now that fans are dabbling into the older generation of Resident Evil titles, there’s a chance that some may be looking at the next potential remake installment, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Well, until that official announcement is made from Capcom, we do have a pretty solid alternative for you. It turns out that some fans have taken a liking to third main installment and reworked the visuals to provide some truly stunning results.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis came out in 1999 which takes place around the events of Resident Evil 2 though with the story following Jill Valentine who is looking to escape Raccoon City. The game is played similarly to the previous installments, really the transition in terms of more modernized gameplay mechanics didn’t really change until Resident Evil 4. With that said, there are still plenty of gamers out there that wouldn’t mind sinking some time into the third main installment again.
As mentioned, some fans made an HD texture pack for the Dolphin emulator that really puts a brand new coat of paint for the game. Visually, this title looks incredible, especially if you look at the original visuals for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis for the GameCube. Of course, because this is an emulator texture pack, it will require you to have game download copy of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and that’s a gray area so we can’t point you in any direction on how to get that going.
However, the texture pack was said to have been made through the use of custom tools that would prevent the apparition of seams. Likewise, the backgrounds were tweaked through exploiting the game data. We’re sure that this is going to get picked up quite a bit from gamers seeking out a means to replay a classic installment to the franchise.
Take a look at the HD project footage released above and likewise, we’ll include a video of how the graphics originally looked within the video below. Now our next big hope is that Capcom comes out with a remake of the game next but again, we’re going to have to wait and see if that ever comes to fruition.
