Capcom isn’t just remaking Resident Evil 3 as a video game. There’s also a board game adaptation in the works.

It’s being made by Steamforged Games, and a Kickstarter will go live later this month. You may think this is a weird time to be running a board game Kickstarter, and you’d be right! But they’re obviously hoping, as other big Kickstarters running this month, that when it’s actually time to start manufacturing and shipping the game, everything will be a little bit more normal.

It’s a co-op survival game for one to four players and can be played as either short scenarios or as a larger “30+ hour campaign” (UPDATE: the publishers have since clarified this to be 19+) complete with storyline. All the game’s major characters will be playable, and this being a Kickstarter, a ton of plastic miniatures are being included.

While the Kickstarter goes live on April 28, they’re hoping the game can ship out in March 2021. Hoping.

My wife and I have monthly board game nights with her IT coworkers (every month someone hosts) and we have a ton of fun.  Because of the current situation our game nights aren't done locally but have moved on to platforms like Steam.  Not as fun but at least the tradition lives on.
