That up there may be Leon from Resident Evil 2 wielding a gnarly lookin’ fight knife. Eventually that knife may have bitten one too many zombies and break, leaving ol’ Leon in a lurch. In this yr’s Resident Evil 3 remake, Jill and Carlos will fare a lot better with their now indestructible knives. Capcom needed you to at all times have “something you can rely on.”
“We’re dealing with survival horror and everything is exhaustible. You run out of bullets. You run out of herbs. You run out of all the items you can use,” producer Peter Fabiano instructed Game Informer. “So if you did run out of everything, what would you have? The knife. The director always wanted to make it so that you at least have your trusty knife.”
Thanks to the livestream of Resident Evil 3 that Capcom ran a pair weeks again, we already knew that knives can be ditching the idea of sturdiness. Now they’re telling us the change had multiple motivation.
Aside from being a consolation blanket while you’re alone and missing bullets, Capcom say they’re conscious that some gamers wish to take a step additional and sort out all of Raccoon City with simply their knives. It’s doable, Capcom confirmed. Apparently they’ve examined it within the studio and a few members of the crew have managed to finish the sport sans weapons.
Knife solely is a still-popular problem and speedrun category for the unique Resident Evil and its 2002 remake however alas it isn’t attainable within the Resident Evil 2 remake from final yr. Rest assured speedrunners, you’ll have a knife shut at hand this time round so get able to toss these clips on the bottom.
If you’ve taken half within the Resident Evil Three demo out proper now, how’d you fare? Have you been holding a shotgun shut at hand or dabbling in zombie knife play?
Resident Evil Three will launch via Steam on April third.
