Resident Evil 3 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – April 3
Capcom was smart to work on another remake from the Resident Evil’s franchise as both fans and critics well-received Resident Evil 2. The game was successful in reviving the horror classic, so fans have expected nothing less from the remaster of Resident Evil 3.
Jill Valentine takes the role as the protagonist, as she takes the dangerous journey to pull through the early days of the zombie outbreak of the cursed Racoon City. Your troubles don’t end here as there is also someone on the hunt for you who will make your escape a daunting task, an enormous and deadly bioweapon called Nemesis.
The remaster will be able to pull newcomers towards the Resident Evil franchise as well as keeping the survival horror experience that the fans loved in the classic. The game will, for sure, surpass the expectations of long time fans of the series while also successfully bringing new players to the franchise.
Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4) – April 10
The remake of Final Fantasy VII is on its way, after years of wait, finally releasing this April 10. There was a PS3 tech demo that defied expectations and presented an excellent form of craftsmanship. The demo also gave hope to the fans, a desire for a complete remake.
Square Enix completely denied this at the time. It has been five years since the original announcement of the game, and we will finally get to play the highly anticipated remake. Cloud Strife returns as the protagonist of the game, previously working for SOLDIER, Cloud leaves the Shinra Corporation behind and joins an eco-terrorist group that aims to fight the Shinra corporation.
The game features a reimagined combat system that will help in attracting new fans towards the series and will give older fans an experience that is entirely new yet still familiar at the heart of the game.
Gears Tactics (PC) – April 28
Gear Tactics is a strategy game that takes the franchise from the shooter genre to the turn-based style similar to the likes of XCOM.
The game takes place 12 years before the events of the first game and tells the story narrative through new characters never seen before.
