Resident Evil 3 Remake Rumored to Launch on Switch as a Cloud Version

Resident Evil 3 Remake could be set to join Control and Hitman 3 on Switch via the cloud.

Few could've expected the recent Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase would have so many surprises. Having announced cloud versions of Control: Ultimate Edition and Hitman 3 via Ubitus, it seems more titles could soon be on their way to the Switch via the could.

While there's no indication of a potential release date for a Resident Evil 3 Cloud Version, datamining from the website of Control's Cloud Version has uncovered evidence that Capcom's Resident Evil 3 Remake could be next in line for Nintendo's hybrid system.

Speaking recently with Business Insider, Ubitus CEO Wesley Kuo released this press statement, confirming their intent to bring further titles to Switch, advising:

We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with a world-class game publisher such as 505 Games. We are thrilled to present their most recent mega title "Control Ultimate Edition - Cloud Version" to a global audience on Nintendo Switch, featuring the highest game play quality and performance, including ray-tracing.

We will continue our efforts to bring more and more exciting major titles to the cloud and share with gamers around the world.

Considering Capcom previously brought Resident Evil 7 to Switch (in Japan only) as a cloud edition using Ubitus technology, it seems highly likely that Resident Evil 3 Remake could follow.

As always, stay tuned to GameSkinny as we get further updates.
