We've all heard rumours that Capcom is already developing the remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and now it seems as if they're teasing it themselves, as their Steam Autumn Sale art firmly points to 1999's Resident Evil instalment.

As caught by PCGamesN, Resident Evil's Facebook account notified their fans of the franchise's sale on Steam, but they did so with an image that's an unmistakable hint at Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. It's the same image you see above by the way, overlayed over some RE2 Remake art.

The image shows Jill Valentine, the protagonist of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, wearing the same clothes she did in the game. Behind her is the rest of the franchise's cast that you'll surely recognise from whichever sequel you played, but Jill is what made everyone talking again. 

We're talking about a 1999 game, the age of GameCubes and PS Ones, so you can't exactly get Resident Evil 3: Nemesis to check, but we assure you - it's Nemesis alright. It's just a matter of whether it was intentional or not. 

Now, Capcom made it no secret that they will be cashing in on their existing IPs with remakes wherever it's possible. Even briefly considering just how well RE2 remake did and it seems like it was more about "when" than "if". 

Naturally, there's no official word from Capcom, but we'd expect some relatively soon given the level of excitement that's drummed up each time Nemesis is hinted at.

Back when Resident Evil 2 remake launched, its producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said that fan enquiries have been key in Capcom's decision, and that it won't be much different if they do Nemesis next. Given how RE3 reused many of the assets of its predecessor, the dev's tasklist may even be shorter this time.
