Resident Evil fans will be excited to know that some of their favorite games finally have a release date for the Nintendo Switch. The Resident Evil series is known for its gore and zombie mutative creatures who were once human until infected with a very potent and deadly virus. Reconstruction of their DNA transformed the once-human population into crazed human-eating and rapidly developed monsters. Capcom just announced that Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will be available on the Nintendo eshop on May 21.
Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 can be purchased as part of the Origins Collection at retail for North American Switch owners. For players in Europe, the games will not be receiving any physical copies. Although, gamers will be allowed to pre-order the Resident Evil games on February 28, but how much each game will cost has not yet been revealed.
Even though Nintendo Switch just previously received Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Revelations 2, May will be the first time a very well known and popular mainline horror series is introduced to the Nintendo Switch. Resident Evil has come a long ways since its first release back in 1996, gaining mass attention from gamers in many regions worldwide. Many of its predecessors are third-person survival-horror games, while others lean more toward action-centric or play out in first-person. Resident Evil 0, which was a 2002 prequel, and Resident Evil 4, which was released in 2005, were some of the series’ best games developed.
The series is not only known for its highly graphic detailing and intense-anxiety rising jump scares, but also for its well written storyline, which grasps the players’ attention and keeps them intrigued enough to come back time after time again for more spooks and gore. The franchise recently came out with a remake of Resident Evil 2 which launched for Xbox One, PS4 and PC in January. However, there is still no word as to if Resident Evil 2 remake will be heading to Nintendo Switch thus far.
