The remake of Resident Evil 3 is going to be pretty awesome, however, just like it was in Resident Evil 2, Capcom is taking some creative liberties. So, Resident Evil 3, while quite similar, will be a little different. One of the main mechanics that you might actually miss, Live Selections, has been nixed from the remake.
What is Live Selections and Why is it Removed from Resident Evil 3 Remake
In the original Resident Evil 3, Live Selections gave you a choice to make before most of the dangerous situations in the game. This selection, altered the overall story of the game. That made the game interesting and allowed you to play it more than once with a different ending. But, why was it removed from Resident Evil 3 Remake? Well, co-producer Pete Fabiano gives us a fairly decent reason:
“So with this [remake], the director wanted to tell a consistent story with Jill, and how she and Carlos overcome Nemesis and eventually escape Raccoon City We just wanted to keep it cohesive, so that you’ll have a singular, more consistent narrative throughout.”
For what it’s worth, a similar feature was also removed from the Resident Evil 2 remake when it was launched. In that game, you had more control over different scenarios based on which character you chose at any given time. Without that feature in the remake, the game was also more streamlined.
