Sagat mod for Resident Evil 3 remake makes Nemesis a Street Fighter

Scarred for life.

Modders have had their fun with Nemesis from the Resident Evil 3 remake - and Mr. X from the Resident Evil 2 remake before it - for quite some time. But as a Street Fighter fan this latest mod caught my eye.

Instead of the hulking monstrosity that is Nemesis, we have the hulking monstrosity that is Sagat, the original Street Fighter boss, the Emperor of Muay Thai, and in the world of Street Fighter, Ryu's very own nemesis.

The Resident Evil 3 remake Sagat mod, from Nexus Mods user sidemilu, does exactly what it says on the tin - and the plan is executed perfectly. Sagat, wearing his trademark eyepatch and with the scar Ryu gave him during that fateful battle front and centre on his chest, stalks poor Jill Valentine, who must be wondering which dimension she fell into.

Sagat has always been a sort of menacing, overpowering figure in the Street Fighter games, so he seems like a great fit as Nemesis. I particularly like the bit where Sagat wields Nemesis' flamethrower, as silly as it looks. I hope Capcom gives him a flamethrower for Street Fighter 6.
