Despite being set before Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is still a great game, and because the pair is being ported to the Cube concurrently, when they are released across Europe in 2003 you will be able to play them in whatever order takes your fancy. And by the sound of it, Capcom is eager to give you every opportunity to buy them both and play them both. The original Resident Evil - due for release on the Cube this September - is a full-blown remake of the first game with glamorous visuals and a refined mansion, and will be released at a typical retail price of about £40. However, both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis will be released in the States this year for $19.99 a piece - approximately €20 or £13. With the games still some way off, Capcom's European pricing remains a mystery, but being able to buy both games for the price of a single major release would greatly increase their chances of finding favour amongst gamers. More details on both games are available for the uninitiated. Related Feature - Resident Evil GameCube preview
