The three Resident Evil games announced today could pave the way for others to be released on the Nintendo console. Resident Evil VII Biohazard is only available in Japan as the Cloud Version, and Resident Evil 2 Remake has only been announced for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If the three games do well, there’s the chance that Capcom could start looking into porting the latest two entries in the series.
The latest Resident Evil game released on PC and consoles is Resident Evil VII Biohazard. The game is a return to form for the series, focusing more on the horror entries than Resident Evil 5 and 6.
But it’s the house and the Baker family that make Resident Evil 7 so brilliant. It’s been years since we felt terrified of a game, at points unable to continue without a break, and despite it feeling slightly too long, that’s something well worth celebrating. Resident Evil 7 is back, it’s brilliant, and it’s scary. Who’d have thought we’d be saying that a few years ago? Where it goes next is anyone’s business, but Capcom finally seem to be back on track, and we couldn’t be happier.
Resident Evil Remake, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4 launch on Nintendo Switch on yet to be confirmed 2019 release dates.
