Resident Evil 3 Demo Ending
Following the release of the Raccoon City demo, players who finish it can watch the ending trailer. This isn’t the first time that Capcom teased a trailer within the demo. In the reimagining of Resident Evil 2, Capcom also surprised fans with immersive cutscenes. Below shows some of the segments teased.
Fans of the original game will be treated to nostalgic cutscenes with some surprising new details and changes. One of these is the train scene showing Jill along with the U.B.C.S. members. A striking difference found in this scene from the first game is that U.B.C.S. Nicholai now joins the survivors aboard the express. Noise echoes from a distance which possibly signals that this cutscene is a nod to Nemesis’ infiltration of the cable car.
Brand new cutscenes
Two of the teased cutscenes within the ending trailer even showed completely different parts not found in the original game. Among them include iconic Resident Evil 2 characters such as gun shop owner, Robert Kendo and surviving policeman, Marvin Branagh.
In Resident Evil 3 Nemesis, we didn’t find a cutscene involving the gun shop owner save for a short mention of the file about the gun delivery in the S.T.A.R.S. office. Here, we can find Robert Kendo alive and well, meeting Jill much like how he found Leon. Kendo proceeds to usher Jill into his hideout, another scene reminiscent of the classic Resident Evil 2.
On the other hand, the cutscene with Marvin Branagh shows a rather tense moment which again, mirrors the Resident Evil 2 cutscene involving either Leon or Claire. Possibly the cop’s last breath, Marvin proceeds to draw his weapon. Unlike the previous cutscene, the camera doesn’t show Marvin conversing directly to Jill. We think that Marvin is interacting with Jill and issues an order that, due to the dire circumstances, has him make an offer that she can’t refuse. We may also find this to be a tribute to Resident Evil 2 and serves as a flashback of Marvin to explain how he became unconscious.
These are only a handful of the clips shown and you can view the entire trailer after clearing the demo. That being said, the cutscenes, in fact, make sense given that Resident Evil 3 takes place moments before and after Resident Evil 2.
