Last year Capcom announced that they would be porting over some classic Resident Evil titles onto the Nintendo Switch. For those wondering when the games will be made available on the console, Capcom has since confirmed that Resident Evil HD Remaster, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4 will be released on the 21st of May.
Note that these are not new titles, in case it wasn’t obvious already. Instead these are ports of older, but classic, Resident Evil titles so if you want to replay them, you’ll soon get your chance. Unfortunately it is unclear if Capcom plans to eventually bring the Resident Evil 2 remake onto the Switch given how well-received it is, so we’ll just have to wait and see (but don’t get your hopes up).
Previously the company had attempted to bring Resident Evil 7 onto the Switch through cloud gaming. This meant that instead of a native version of the game for the Switch, gamers would instead stream the game to their console. It was only available in Japan which was a bit of a bummer, but it did highlight some of the possibilities that we can expect from game streaming in the future, especially with rumors that Microsoft could be looking to bring the Xbox Game Pass to the Switch.
