Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, released in Japan as Biohazard 3: Last Escape,is a survival horror video game and the third installment in the Resident Evil series developed and published by Capcom. The game was released for the Sony PlayStation, and was subsequently ported to the Sega Dreamcast, PC and Nintendo GameCube. Resident Evil 3 was the last core title in the series to be released for the PlayStation. The game is also available for download on the Japanese Playstation Store for use with both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Portable.
The first half of the game occurs 24 hours prior to Resident Evil 2 and the second half takes place the day after. The storyline expands upon the settings and events of the T-Virus outbreak in Raccoon City, and concludes with the fate of the city and its infected population.
The game takes place two months after the mansion incident in Resident Evil. The player takes control of former S.T.A.R.S. officer Jill Valentine in her attempt to escape a ruined and zombie-infested Raccoon City. During her escape, she encounters three surviving members of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, Carlos Oliveira, Mikhail Victor and Nicholai Ginovaef. Mikhail sacrifices himself to save Jill from the Nemesis, a bio-organic weapon, and Jill escapes with Carlos. Depending on the player's actions, Nicholai may also die but a file in Resident Evil: Survivor written after the incident by him suggests that letting him live is the canonical ending.
Nemesis was the last core title in the series to be released for the PlayStation and it was also the final Resident Evil game to take place in Raccoon City until the release of Resident Evil Outbreak. The city's fate is resolved in the game's finale. The US Government, after hearing of unsuccessful efforts to avert the T-Virus infestation, orders the nuclear destruction of Raccoon City. At this point in the game, the player has exactly fifteen minutes to escape the city before the missile strikes.
Soundtrack composed by Masami Ueda and Saori Maeda.
