The safe rooms are much like Resident Evil 2‘s that were safe from the predatory Mr. X. Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil 3 Safe Rooms cannot be penetrated by the once-titular Nemesis. The news comes after a report from Official Xbox Magazine suggesting that Nemesis could follow protagonist Jill Valentine into what was once considered a safe haven.
However, Official Xbox Magazine had mistaken, assuming the room with a “progress-saving typewriter” was a Safe Room. As before, safe rooms have their own musical cues to tell you that you’ll be safe.
Resident Evil 3 heads to PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC on April 3.
