Resident Evil 3: The Board Game Kickstarter now live

Feeling board?

As was previously announced, the official Kickstarter for the Resident Evil 3 Board Game adaptation is now live. The funding goal sits at $186k, and it's already well on its way to hitting that total. Check out official details on the game below.

Based on Capcom’s classic Resident Evil™ 3: Nemesis video game, Resident Evil™ 3: The Board Game is a cooperative campaign game for 1-4 players. Playing as a survivor trapped in Raccoon City, you must fight to survive the nightmare and make your escape—but with unknown terrors waiting around every corner, can you handle the suspense?

Physical listings for Resident Evil 5 and 6 on Switch pop up once again, this time via GameStop

Here we go again

Back in January of 2020, retailer Mighty Ape had listings for physical versions of Resident Evil 5 and 6 on Switch. Just a few days after those listings were discovered, Mighty Ape yanked both pages and stated that both listings were a mistake. Now we might be set to go through that situation all over again.

This time around, it's the official website for GameStop Ireland that has listings for both games on Switch. They're definitely full-priced retail releases according to the listings, and neither has a release date. Are we seeing yet another retail mistake with these titles, or is the second time a charm?

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!

Retailer adds Switch listings for Metroid Prime Trilogy, Resident Evil 3, and Mafia II: Definitive Edition

Can at least one of these end up being true...please?!

Sometimes retail listings give us an early look at unannounced games coming to platforms, and other times they're end up being 100% incorrect. With this latest round of listings, it's hard to tell which is more likely.

Retailer Insta-Games has added Switch listings for Metroid Prime Trilogy, Resident Evil 3, and Mafia II: Definitive Edition. We've been through the Metroid Prime Trilogy situation numerous times now, and we've seen no official word of it actually coming to Switch. We also recently heard rumors of a cloud version of Resident Evil 3 coming to Switch, but Capcom hasn't commented. Finally we have Mafia II: Definitive Edition, which also hasn't been mentioned, but does seem like the most likely of the three.

We'll keep tabs on the retailer to see if they remove these listings, or if others crop up in the coming days. Hopefully these all end up coming true, but I'm quite doubtful that'll be the case.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!

GameSpot Video - The complete Resident Evil timeline explained

The Resident Evil franchise has a sprawling timeline that interweaves its complex narrative across seven mainline games, a handful of spin-offs, and countless DLC expansions. But how does it all tie together?

Paul Haddad, voice of Leon Kennedy in the original Resident Evil 2, passes away

Rest in peace, Paul

We're sad to report that Paul Haddad, the man who voiced Leon Kennedy in the original Resident Evil 2, has passed away at the age of 56. Paul also provided voice work for cartoons such as The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and X-Men: The Animated Series. No reason for Paul's passing was shared.

We offer up our condolences to all those impacted by the passing of Paul. The gaming community will surely remember him for bringing an iconic character to life.

Thanks to ArmoredFrog for sharing this news with us.

Resident Evil voice actors come together to spread the word on flattening the coronavirus curve

Be a STAR and stay home

Millions of people are staying inside their homes to help fight the coronavirus, but there are some who haven't gotten the memo yet. For those people, perhaps a special message from the Resident Evil cast will help.

In the tweet above, you can see a little skit featuring the Resident Evil cast as they teach you the importance of staying safe and doing your part to help fight coronavirus. A number of voice actors from the franchise have returned to spread the message, so hopefully longtime fans will listen!

It doesn't appear that Capcom is involved in this video in any way, but hopefully they appreciate what their series stars are doing.

Capcom and Laced Records team up for a Resident Evil 4 soundtrack release on vinyl

Evil sounds

I can't say that I remember much of the music in Resident Evil 4, but I certainly remember the game! For those who look back on the game's tunes fondly, today's announcement is for you.

Capcom and Laced Records are teaming up for a Resident Evil 4 vinyl soundtrack release, which comes in both standard and limited edition. The best part is that both versions are priced the same, but bad part is that they're $80. Check out full details on the limited edition below.

Product Information:

4x LP vinyl available with Limited Edition ‘muddy gold’ discs
Features the score from the 2005 Nintendo GameCube™ title

Shipping Info:

- Orders Will Ship Late June 2020 -

Laced Records and Capcom team up once again to bring fans Resident Evil™ soundtracks on audiophile-quality vinyl. Pre-orders are now open for the Resident Evil™ 4 soundtrack on four LPs, featuring remastered audio from the 2005 Nintendo GameCube™ title, and brand new vinyl sleeve artwork by Boris Moncel.

Resident Evil 4 fundamentally changed the survival horror series by injecting action gameplay moving to a more action-packed over-the-shoulder camera. The gaming world continues to celebrate it as one of the most tightly designed and inventive video games ever made — a true classic that inspired many other games across several genres. For the music score, composers Shusaku Uchiyama and Misao Senbongi ratcheted up the tension with layers of unsettling electronic sounds and percussion loops; and also created fan favourite tracks “Serenity” and “Save Theme” suffused with anxious, atmospheric synths.

Resident Evil 3: The Board Game is Coming to Kickstarter

We may not get the remake, but we can enjoy a board game!

Tabletop games publisher Steamforged Games is once again working with Japanese video game giant Capcom on a brand new Resident Evil™ board game, set to launch April 28 on Kickstarter.

Following the success of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game, Steamforged will now bring the 1999 Playstation classic, Resident Evil™ 3, to the tabletop.

Based on the original video game, Resident Evil™ 3: The Board Game is a cooperative survival horror game for 1-4 players that can be experienced either through individual, one-shot scenarios, or as a 19+ hour campaign with an overarching storyline.

Taking control of iconic characters like Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira, players will attempt to escape Raccoon City in the midst of a T-virus outbreak.

All the while, the city danger level will be on the rise, the number of undead monsters will increase, and every decision will be crucial.

To survive, players must carefully manage resources, make intelligent and meaningful decisions, and be wary of curveballs thrown by the tension deck—a mechanic carried over from the RE2 board game which will surprise players with unexpected threats to replicate the terrifying suspense of the video game.

The board game’s design comes from Sherwin Matthews of Steamforged, a self-proclaimed superfan of the franchise who also headed the design of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game.

Mat Hart, Creative Director and co-founder of Steamforged Games, said, “It’s a privilege and an honour to be working with Capcom once again to bring the horrors of Raccoon City to the tabletop.

“Steamforged is proud of its proven ability to bring video game properties to life and

lovingly craft them into high-quality board and card games. Resident Evil™ 3: The Board Game will surprise and challenge even the most hardcore RE fans. It will have players running from Nemesis like it’s 1999!”

Resident Evil 3™: The Board Game will launch on Kickstarter on April 28, 2020. Fans can follow the campaign on Kickstarter to be notified when it goes live.

RUMOR - Resident Evil 3 Remake datamine suggests that the game is coming to Switch

According to a recent datamine, a Nintendo Switch version of Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake may soon be available. Given the fact that there are lines of code in the game that suggest that players will be able to visit a console's digital game store, including Nintendo's, it seems to suggest that if nothing else, Capcom at least considered bringing the game to Switch at one point. Some have speculated that the game may be available only through a cloud-based service, which would be similar to have a similar game, Resident Evil 7, was made available for Switch. For the time being, this shall have to remain as a mysterious line of code until Capcom makes an official comment.
