Video Games Chronicle with reference to several anonymous sources reported that the development of Resident Evil 3 is mainly engaged in a new studio of former director of Platinum Games Tatsui Minami. Her logo – M-Two Inc – can be seen at the end of the debut trailer.

According to VGC, M-Two has been working for more than a year and consists of several former employees of Platinum and Capcom. The latter allegedly sponsored the foundation of the team, leaving M-Two independent and able to develop its own projects.

The name M-Two is intended to reflect the partnership between Tatsui Minami and Shinji Mikami. VGC claims that Minami originally founded the studio, relying on the creator of Resident Evil, but he apparently decided to stay at his Tango Gameworks. Bethesda and Capcom did not comment on this information.

RE3 is also supported by Japanese NeoBards Entertainment, which previously ported Onimusha: Warlords, Devil May Cry HD Collection and Resident Evil Origins Collection. Rumor has it that Capcom has given the development of the Resident Evil 3 remake entirely to these third-party partners, but after the success of RE 2 is trying to control the process of creating the game more.

Minami left Platinum Games in 2016, a year before Scalebound was cancelled. According to the insiders, Minami had little contact with his team, which did not distinguish him from other studio leaders. In addition, he was accused of concealing important financial indicators from the board of directors and unsatisfactory performance. According to rumors, these are the circumstances that forced him to leave Platinum Games. However, Minami is an experienced game-designer who even managed to work on Super Ghouls and Ghosts.
