Capcom is usually all about bringing Resident Evil 4 to a console soon after it launches, and two years seems just about right to come to the Nintendo Switch. The all-time great performs well no matter which console it appears on, so you can bet I'll be scooping it up on a console I actually have time to sit and enjoy it on.
The announcement came through Capcom's official Twitter page, which also confirmed that the Resident Evil GameCube remake and Resident Evil 0 would also be coming alongside it in 2019.
No further news has been made available at this time. We can assume that both Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 will be the recent HD remasters that appeared on other consoles, but as for Resident Evil 4, the question remains if it will allow for the Wii motion controls using the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con controllers or the HD version of the game…
There should be no question about me being stoked. Resident Evil 4 is still one of the best survival horror/shooter games ever made, and despite countless games building on the foundation it laid down, it still feels just as good as it did over a decade ago.
Coming to a portable console for the first time only makes this release more appealing.
As for the other games, I like Resident Evil, but I'm not sure if I do enough for another purchase just yet. The PlayStation 3 is still viable enough for that one. The same goes for Resident Evil 0, which I'm not that big a fan of.
We'll let you know more once Capcom lets us know. Keep an eye out for Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil, and Resident Evil 0 on the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
