Three different Resident Evil games are scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch in May
Another day, another Resident Evil port.
With the remake of Resident Evil 2 still fresh in the minds of many gamers, it shouldn’t be that surprising that Capcom is now giving a firm release date on the release of some classic Resident Evil action on the Nintendo Switch.
Announced today via Twitter, Capcom is bringing Resident Evil (HD Remaster), Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 to the Nintendo eShop on May 21. Each title will be available separately from the eShop. No word yet on pricing, but pre-orders for the digital game go live on February 28.
Capcom also wants us to know that the Nintendo Switch is perfect to play these games “on trains, during mansion tours, and across the European countryside.” Ok, sure. Whatever you say. Capcom notes that a physical edition featuring Resident Evil (HD Remaster) and Resident Evil 0 will be bundled in a Resident Evil Origins Collection package at retail stores, as well. No date has been given for that, however.
With Resident Evil games and their remakes and ports seemingly popping up on every console since the beginning of time, this move makes sense, and a lot of us will probably be purchasing these games for the second, third, or maybe even fourth time. Now, the main question here is – when can we expect to see the Resident Evil 2 remake on the Switch?
