Resident Evil 7 will be available for Nintendo Switch later this week—with a catch

Brandon Russell

Capcom on Monday announced Resident Evil 7 is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Thursday, May 24—and it’ll only be around $20. But there’s a major catch consumers need to know about.

Brandon Russell

I already explained why I find Resident Evil 7’s first-person approach so enjoyable.
