Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, known in Japan as Biohazard 3: Last Escape, is a survival horror video game developed by Capcom and originally released for the PlayStation video game console in 1999. It is the third instalment in the Resident Evil video game series and takes place before and after the events of Resident Evil 2. The story of the game follows Resident Evil protagonist Jill Valentine and her efforts to escape from a city that has been infected with a new type of biological weapon secretly developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis features a larger number of enemies for the player to defeat and introduces the eponymous Nemesis creature (also called the Pursuer or Chaser), which periodically pursues the player from one area to the next until the end of the game. Besides Resident Evil 3, it is also featured on various merchandise and in the 2004 film Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
In the series' story, the Nemesis is the result of infecting a Tyrant — a humanoid bio-weapon created to be the ultimate life-form — with a parasitic organism designed to increase its intelligence. Upon infection, the parasite takes control of the Tyrant's nervous system, forming its own brain and enabling it to follow precise instructions and make decisions without a need for constant direction. Clothed in black trousers, an overcoat, boots, and gloves, the Nemesis is armed with a rocket launcher mounted on its left arm. To emphasize its design as a prototype, the game developers left exposed muscles on its body and added stitches to cover the right eye.
