After the massive success of the Resident Evil 2 Remake, there is even more good news coming for fans of the series as Resident Evil 0, 1 and 4 have all been announced for release on the Nintendo Switch. All three games will be available on Switch in North America and Europe, with the North American release allowing players to purchase the Resident Evil: Origins Collection containing both 0 and 1 in a single package while the European release will make the games available separately.
The Resident Evil series has been getting a lot of love lately with the massive success of the much anticipated Resident Evil 2 remake, not to mention the series recapturing some of its horror magic with the release of Resident Evil 7. With a slew of re-releases now making it possible to play the games on the go it’s likely that we’ll be seeing a lot more zombie slaughtering on our streets, trains, and buses over the coming months.
The announcement was even made with some sly jokes for fans of the series. The tweet in question encouraged players to enjoy the game on trains while touring mansions and while taking a scenic walk through the European countryside. For those unaware, those three suggestions exactly mirror the settings for Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil HD remake and Resident Evil 4 respectively. The tweets from the official Resident Evil account also told followers to await more information in the future regarding the release of the titles.
Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4 are coming to Nintendo Switch eShop on May 21!
Play all three masterpieces anywhere, such as:
– On trains ?
