Back in the days of Nintendo‘s Gamecube, Capcom released several Resident Evil titles for the console based on the 3D shape.  Fast forward to today, Nintendo has done away with their cube in favor of mobility with the Nintendo Switch, and it’s ever-growing roster is about to see 3 games from Gamecube era return.  That’s because Capcom intends on re-releasing Resident Evil Remake, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 on Nintendo Switch.

All three games will be available digitally, via Nintendo Switch’s eshop.  However, there hasn’t been a price point made public for each individual game, as of yet.  Fortunately, we’ll know soon enough, as pre-ordering for these titles will open on February 28, 2019, for a May 21 release.  If digital games aren’t your style, Capcom has stated that they do plan on releasing a physical version that will include Resident Evil Remake and Resident Evil 0.  Capcom is dubbing it the Resident Evil Origins Collection.  No word yet on if there will be a physical release for Resident Evil 4.

With the exception of Resident Evil Remake, these won’t be remade games, just ports onto the Nintendo Switch system, much like Final Fantasy IX was for Square Enix.  That being said, as the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake showed, the fandom is still behind these games and are chomping at the bit to re-experience them on updated consoles.  

Resident Evil Remake, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will release on May 21, 2019 on Nintendo Switch.
