Capcom dropped a fresh trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake on Tuesday, giving us our first proper look at Nemesis — the deadly monster that stalks Jill Valentine through Raccoon City’s streets. 

Nemesis is a lot like the Tyrant that pursued you in last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake, but the new trailer showcases a major difference — the Resident Evil 3 beast wields a flamethrower. He only had a rocket launcher in the original game, which came out on Sony PlayStation in 1999.

Being set on fire doesn’t stop Nemesis, it just makes him angrier.

We also catch a glimpse of a Hunter, one of the game’s nasty reptilian monsters. On the human side, we see more of Carlos Oliveira, a mercenary who teams up with Jill (there’s a section where you play as him), and his teammates Mikhail Victor and Nicholai Ginovaef.

The Resident Evil 3 remake, which was revealed back in December, will be out on PS4, Xbox One and PC on April 3. If you want a taste of it before then, Capcom added a Jill-related Easter egg into the second game’s remake.

Not seen in the trailer was Resident Evil Resistance, a co-op multiplayer game that’ll come with Resident Evil 3.
