Nintendo fans with a hankering for horror games will be happy to hear that a series of Resident Evil games will be released on Nintendo Switch next year. Multiple fan favorites are set to hit the platform, and the ever-beloved Resident Evil 4 is one of the titles.
Capcom, the developer and publisher of the video game series in question, released a tweet this past Friday announcing the news. In the statement, they have confirmed that Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will be some of the favorites that are set to be launching on Nintendo Switch in 2019.
“Capcom is bringing multiple fan favourites to Nintendo Switch!
Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will each be launching on Nintendo Switch in 2019!
We’ll have more info soon!”
The tweet was still rather vague, alluding to more information being released soon, so there’s little known at this point. The developer currently has struck success with the platform with the release of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
Resident Evil 4, which is the sixth installment in the major series, was initially released in 2005 and has gone through twelve additional releases for a number of different platforms since. The survival horror game is set around players taking the role of Leon S. Kennedy, a government agent, who has the task of rescuing the US President’s daughter who has been taken hostage by a cult.
The game won a number of Game Of The Year awards for 2005 and has been praised all over the globe as one of the ‘best video games of all time’. With the amount of love that the game franchise and the developer have, perhaps it’s understandable that they’re looking to expand their demographic further to yet another platform.
