Bad news for Resident Evil fans hoping for a Nintendo reunion: Capcom has stated it isn’t happening anytime soon. The newest installment in the survival horror franchise, Resident Evil 7, comes out this Tuesday for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, Capcom has thus far been tight-lipped about the possibility of one of their flagship franchises newest games landing on the Nintendo Switch.
But in a recent interview, RE7‘s producer, Masachika Kawata, had this to say about a potential port of the newest entry in the revered franchise:
“I think it’s a very unique piece of hardware…I’m looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself, but we have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch.”– Resident Evil 7 Producer Masachika Kawata
Although they may have nixed a port to Nintendo’s newest console as of this writing, Capcom have a long history of working with Nintendo. One of the Switch’s confirmed titles is Ultra Street Fighter II, an update of one of the company’s most successful games of all time. So there is still hope for RE on Nintendo Switch in the future.
What do you think? Will Capcom cave and work with Nintendo to bring RE7 to the Switch sometime in the near future? Sound off in the comments below?
