Rumors of a Resident Evil 3 reboot intensified last month, while covers for the game popped up on PlayStation Network in early December (as unearthed by tracker Gamstat). To sweeten the pot, the remake will include Resident Evil: Project Resistance, a 4-versus-1 survival game Capcom announced in September.
