Capcom Announces Release Dates For Three Resident Evil Classics on Switch

Resident Evil 0, the Resident Evil remake, and Resident Evil 4 are set to release May 21 in both digital and physical formats; pre-orders begin February 28.

For Capcom, the Resident Evil series is the train that can’t be stopped. Following the release of the highly-anticipated Resident Evil 2 remake in January as well as talk of the company being open to a Resident Evil 3 remake in the future, the Japanese developer finally announced the release date of three franchise classics on the Nintendo Switch.

Published via the official Resident Evil Twitter account, Capcom confirmed today that fans can expect to see Resident Evil 0, the Resident Evil remaster, and Resident Evil 4 shamble onto Nintendo’s latest console on May 21. According to the tweet, pre-orders will begin February 28. 

All three games will be released digitally as separate products on the Nintendo eShop. Although the games will also see a physical release at the same time, Resident Evil 0 and the Resident Evil remaster will be bundled as one package, called the Resident Evil Origins Collection. The physical edition of Resident Evil 4 will be sold separately. 

As of this writing, Capcom has not disclosed pricing for the games or the collection. However, prices for all three individual games on Steam, the PlayStation Store, and the Xbox Marketplace are currently $19.99.  

Over the years, all three titles have been released on various platforms, both physically and digitally. While all have received different Metacritic scores dependent on platform, Resident Evil 4 has, unsurprisingly scored the highest and most consistently, regardless of platform or era. 

While having Resident Evil 0 and the Resident Evil remaster on a portable console is sure to excite fans of the series, having Resident Evil 4 in such a format is certainly something to look forward to. Among fans of the survival-horror series, Resident Evil 4 is regarded as one of the best Resident Evil games of all time. 

Considering Capcom recently said it has no plans to bring the widely acclaimed Resident Evil 2 remake to the Switch platform, having Resident Evil 4 is, if anything, a worthwhile consolation prize.
