It was one of the Nintendo Direct surprises. Announcement of Resident Evil Village and other episodes on Switch… but not in the way you think.
Are you planning to stay in a well isolated chalet in a forest with a very spooky environment? No, now is the time to book and take your Switch with you. The latest Resident Evil games are coming to the Nintendo hybrid console… but not everyone will be able to play them.
Resident Evil Village and three other REs on Switch
Resident Evil Village Gold Edition releases on October 28, 2022 on Nintendo Switch…only in the cloud. So if you don’t have a good connection, you can forget about it. The base game will be available with all the new features in this final edition. Namely: “Shadows of Rose Solo DLC” (beware, spoilers), a third-person view and new playable characters in the “Mercenaries” mode (Lady Dimitrescu, Karl Heisenberg and Chris Redfield). However, Winters’ Expansion content will be released on December 2, 2022.
Capcom won’t be satisfied with this component and is already announcing Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes as well as RE7 on Nintendo Switch… in the cloud, of course! All three games are available in 2022 with no specific dates. Switch to Switch Pro/2 for native editing?
