UPDATE: Capcom was definitely not hinting Resident Evil 3’s remake when it tweeted a picture of the Nemesis, with the caption, “We have our own relentless pursuer who just can't seem to die”.
Capcom’s community manager made it clear that “… it was just a friday the 13th pun” in a response sent to us on Twitter.
Sorry to disappoint but it was just a friday the 13th pun 🙂

It may seem a little far-fetched. But with the remake of Resident Evil 2 under way, and the game’s positive reception by fans and gamers in general, it’s likely that the developer has already begun work on Resident Evil 3’s remake.
Resident Evil 3 Remake confirmed. Cool
