If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner, it must hurt to see all the rave reviews Resident Evil 2 is getting for every other console under the sun. It seems like every other day there’s a news piece regarding that game. Even Resident Evil 7 isn’t available to most of the console’s customers, as it’s currently a streaming only title that’s exclusive to Japan.
Capcom feels your pain, Nintendo Switch gamers and are furiously porting over a cadre of older Resident Evil titles to Nintendo’s hybrid console for release on May 21.
The announcement came straight from the horse’s mouth, or rather Twitter in this case. While the tweet didn’t reveal the pricing for the games, it should be revealed pretty soon as all three titles will be up for pre-orders on February 28 on the Nintendo eStore.
On the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, each of the three games go for USD$19.99. Whether that’ll hold true for the Nintendo Switch version remains to be seen. It’s not unheard of developers to charge more for a Nintendo Switch release.
While Resident Evil 4 has received portable versions for iOS and Android, this is the first time that Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 have been made mobile.
Like Capcom’s tweet mentions, now you can replicate RE0’s beginning part by really playing on a train, while you’re controlling Rebecca and Billy who are on a train! So meta!
There’s no word on whether Capcom plans to bring Resident Evil 5 and 6 to the Nintendo Switch after these releases, though the games are readily available on other platforms.
