Assuming it does come out next year, that seems like a pretty fast development cycle, considering REmake 2 came out not even a year ago.
Makes me wonder if they really started this one after RE2, or if they were working on RE3 already simultaneously. This seems more like a dev cycle you'd expect on PS1.
Also, my take on everyone's looks:
Leon: Worse but close enough.
Claire: Worse and not good.
Jill: Worse but close enough.
