Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 Coming to Nintendo Switch

Resident Evil Revelations started life as a Nintendo 3DS game and turned out to be one of the more engaging games in the horror franchise in a long time.  Since then it’s seen a port to previous generation consoles, as well as a sequel that only arrived on PlayStation and Xbox platforms, leaving Nintendo fans (where it all started) in the lurch.  

Fortunately, that’s something Capcom is looking to remedy.  Yesterday, they announced the Revelations remastered version (bringing the game up to a snazzy 1920×1080 resolution with some updated controls) will be arriving for PS4 and Xbox One later this month on August 29th.  In the same announcement, they also revealed the Resident Evil Revelations remaster will be coming to Nintendo Switch, along with Revelations 2, later on in the year.  So if you missed out on these games, you’ll be able to play both of them on the go with the Switch:


Now updated for current generation consoles, Resident Evil Revelations is the acclaimed survival horror title featuring series veterans Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate the reportedly abandoned “Queen Zenobia” cruise ship. This new version features a smoother 1920×1080 resolution, an improved framerate, increased environmental detail and refined creature movement, defining the best-looking version of the game to date. All previously released downloadable content is also included in the game as unlockable rewards.

Take on hordes of enemies with a friend online in the returning Raid Mode, which includes “The Ghost Ship: Chaos,” a fresh take on the popular stage with more powerful weapons and ways for players to upgrade their arsenal, and remixed enemy placements for an added challenge. Additionally, four controller schemes based on control types from across the entire series are available in this version of the game for a more flexible experience to accommodate different playstyles.

Resident Evil Revelations launches in North America at retail and digitally on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One August 29 for $19.99. A Nintendo Switch release of both Resident Evil Revelations and its follow up Resident Evil Revelations 2, which features series favorites like Claire Redfield and Barry Burton as they face untold horror, will also be available in Late 2017.
