It doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing a Dino Crisis remake any time soon, sadly. Capcom has been radio silent on the franchise for ages, though they recently renewed their copyright on it.
To make up for it, however, fans have taken to modding to do their part in bringing back the dinosaur horror feel. They’ve already made a Resident Evil 2 Dino Crisis mod, and now, Resident Evil 3 is getting the same treatment.
Darkness Valtier([wp-svg-icons icon=”youtube” wrap=”i”]@Darknessvaltier) is creating “Dino Evil 3” turning all of the enemies of Resident Evil 3 to dinosaurs from Dino Crisis. The mod is an early incarnation, 0.1 to be specific. Currently, there’s only one kind of dinosaur, something of a mini Rex. It seems to be a reskinned Hunter Gamma, with its death animations being identical.
With Valtier’s mod being fairly young, it suffers from some problems with the creatures not really fitting where they’re placed. Remember though, this is 0.1; it’ll get better and they are no stranger to the mod community so this will be exciting to watch grow.
A nice pair to this mod is a new skin for Jill courtesy of Marcos RC([wp-svg-icons icon=”twitter” wrap=”i”]@MarcosRCRE), which turns her into Regina from Dino Crisis.
