Evidence has been unearthed suggesting that a Resident Evil 3 Switch cloud version is on the way. Like the recently-released Switch version of Control, this edition would be worked on by cloud gaming specialist Ubitus.

Is a Resident Evil 3 Switch version on the way?

According to Business Insider, cloud gaming studio Ubitus is "currently working with numerous industry-leading game developers" in an effort to bring more games to the Switch via cloud gaming. When launching the Switch version of Control, which surprise-dropped for Nintendo's console yesterday, the game takes you to a website. That site doesn't go anywhere on desktop, but observant players managed to find an image within the site's assets, simply labeled "default.jpg". Here's the image they found:

The artwork for Resident Evil 3 Switch Cloud Version

This image would appear to be pretty incontrovertible evidence that Resident Evil 3 is on its way to the Nintendo Switch via cloud gaming. This actually wouldn't be the first time we've heard about such a project. Back in March this year, industry analyst Daniel Ahmad tweeted that while a native version of Resident Evil 3 wasn't in the works for Switch, a cloud version was "being explored". It seems like those explorations have finally yielded fruit.


When can we expect to see Resident Evil 3 on the Switch?

Unfortunately, we don't yet know when the game will land on Nintendo's platform. Given that this image was hidden within the assets for a site that wasn't meant to be accessed on desktop, it goes without saying that we don't yet have an official announcement regarding Resident Evil 3 on Switch. We also don't yet know what else Ubitus could be working on for the Nintendo Switch, including whether or not a cloud version of Resi 3's predecessor Resident Evil 2 is in the works. We'll bring you more on this as soon as we get it.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
