Capcom today announced that three classic games from its Resident Evil franchise will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2019. The announcement was made through a Twitter post which didn't provide a whole lot of information aside from which titles will be released - Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4.
The common theme in these titles is that they're all relatively old and should be relatively easy to bring to Nintendo's hybrid system without working too hard to downgrade the graphics. The Switch missed out on the launch of Resident Evil 7 last year, though Capcom did end up releasing a 'cloud version' of the title in Japan. Aside from that, only the spin-off games Resident Evil: Revelations and its sequel, Revelations 2, have made their way to Nintendo's latest console.
While the Switch is seeing the release of these three classics, other major platforms are getting a full-blown remake of Resident Evil 2, which Nintendo's platform is seemingly missing out on as well. Some fans might appreciate the 'on-the-go' editions of the three classics announced today, but others might be frustrated at the fact that they can't play more modern titles on the console. With the announcement of Doom Eternal, Bethesda seems to be one of the few publishers to release its most popular games on the Switch.
