Trivia

The "Platinum" adittion to the title refers to a series of goodies added exclusively for the pc version, these include:

-the "Arrange" mode (which was originally available only on Resident Evil 3: Nemesis) which starts you off with more guns, etc. and changes the pace of the game a little.

-the "Extreme Battle" mode, which actually allows you to play your way backwards through the game.

-a gallery featuring images, conceptual drawings, movies, individual 3d models, etc...

-and a windows theme plus some wallpapers, screensavers, etc.

The secret features of the original game (such as alternate clothes, etc.), remain locked however, and you must do the nessesary actions in order to unlock them. (the upcoming pc version of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis has all its hidden features unlocked right from the start!)
