Resident Evil games are coming to the Switch

Some of the greatest games in the Resident Evil series are finally coming to Nintendo Switch.

Capcom has announced on Twitter that Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil will all be coming to the hybrid console in 2019.

Capcom hasn’t mentioned any details outside of the fact that they are coming to the console. Any date? Not a one. Which versions of the games will be available? Hopefully the HD remasters, but once again: Capcom hasn’t said. The publisher has said that they’ll provide “more info soon,” but until then we only have the good news that these three fan favorites will soon be playable on the big screen and on the go.

This isn’t the first Resident Evil game hitting the Switch. The most recent game in the series, Resident Evil 7, was briefly playable on Switch. It was the first game to make use of a Japanese cloud-streaming service for the console, which allows owners to pay a fee that grants them access to the game. This version, which required a persistent online connection, was only available for a limited time, however, and it never came to the West.

Hopefully, Capcom won’t stop with these three gems. With a good amount of success, maybe Capcom can port the rest of the Resident Evil games. I’m sure Resident Evil fans would be thrilled to play the rest of the Resident Evil games on the go…well maybe not Resident Evil 6.

All three games are considered important to the survival horror franchise, and have helped make the genre what it is today. Let’s hope we won’t have to wait too long to replay these gems on the newest Nintendo console.
