Resident Evil 3 Nemesis Easter egg added to Resident Evil 2 demo
As expected, a reference to Nemesis has been added to Resident Evil 2 in order to promote Resident Evil 3 – but in the demo, not the main game.
In order to promote the release of the Resident Evil 3 remake next April, Capcom has re-released the original Resident Evil 2 demo and they’ve added a little something extra to it.
You don’t actually get to see Nemesis – the powered-up Tyrant, similar to Mr. X, who stalks you through the entire game – but you do get to hear him growling his catchphrase ‘S.T.A.R.S.’
The Special Tactics and Rescue Service is the same unit Jill, Chris, and the rest of the protagonists from Resident Evil 1 are a part of and Nemesis is tasked with killing them all.
The demo has also been changed so that there are no longer any time limits and you get to play it more than once (the demo was originally labelled ‘1-Shot’, now it’s just ‘R.P.D. Demo’).
Nemesis cannot be heard in the full game, but there is a new letter from Jill that’s appeared, linking the two games together, and a new achievement named Chasing Jill.
If patches had been a thing back in 1999, you can guarantee this would’ve happened with the original Resident Evil 2 and 3 as well – which also came out only a year after each other and have stories that run concurrently.
The Resident Evil 3 remake is due for release on 3 April next year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
It’ll probably have its own demo too, although so far Capcom hasn’t mentioned anything about that.
