It hasn’t even been a full year since the remake of Resident Evil 2 hit the shelves, and Capcom isn’t done yet. Recently, the publishing powerhouse from Japan has announced that a remake of Resident Evil 3 will arrive in 2020, providing another dose of nostalgia for those who love reminiscing about classic zombie-shooters. Coming along for the ride is a multiplayer mode called Resident Evil Resistance, an online battle between a team of four and a “mastermind” who sets all the traps. Considering how heavily-revered the previous remake has been, I have full confidence this next one will be nothing short of enthralling. The zombie-shooting fun resumes on April 3.
Today, the Resident Evil Twitter account announced that Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will be heading to the Nintendo Switch via its eShop page on May 21st, 2019. The Twitter account made sure to emphasize the Nintendo Switch’s emphasis for playing-it-on-the-go while noting that people can begin pre-ordering the games on February 28th.
The Resident Evil Twitter account also shared some important information that both European and American Nintendo Switch owners should be aware of. Here’s what the Twitter account stated after announcing the games’ release date.
Based on the announcements above, it appears European Nintendo Switch owners may not have a chance to buy any of the titles physically, or in a bundled package. Yet, for North American consumers, while they have the ability to buy RE0 and 1 in a package, their bundle doesn’t include Resident Evil 4.
Either way, it’s a bummer that both European and American Nintendo fans won’t have an option to buy all three games in one bundle. Hopefully, as the weeks progress, we’ll see a bundle like that be announced soon.
Also, I’d love to give a shout-out toward Capcom’s Resident Evil community manager @ImKatastrophe for keeping her word when tweeting that more news about these titles would come by the end of February. To learn more about that tweet, click here.

Based on a tweet made by Capcom’s Resident Evil community manager @ImKatastrophe we should be receiving more news on the Resident Evil Nintendo Switch ports “at the end of Feb[.]” According to Nintendoeverything.com, “we haven’t heard anything since the initial announcement in October, but fans are due for an update soon.”
To see @ImKatastrophe’s tweet yourself, click here. Make sure to be courteous and not an annoyance if you decide to tweet her.
According to Nintendoeverything.com, “a few months ago, Capcom announcedthat it[‘s]” planning to release Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 this year. The company also plans to bring other classic Resident Evil titles to the platform–according to Nintendoeverything.com.
If one analyzes @ImKatastrophe’s tweet, they’ll notice she posted that “more news will be coming” on February 13th, which was last Wednesday. It’s current February 28th, and no news has been shared from her or Capcom yet. If more details on the ports are still coming than we should be getting it soon.
If anything news-related about the Nintendo Switch ports is shared between now and the end of February, we’ll be sure to cover the announcement when it comes.

Today, Capcom announced on the official Resident Evil Twitter account that players can download and play Resident Evil 2’s 1-Shot demo on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam now.
According to GameInformer.com, the “1-Shot” demo versions for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam will expire on January 31st, 2019. They state you’ll be playing as the main protagonist, Leon “as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job.” GameInformer.com also reports that players only have thirty minutes to defeat the zombies, unravel various puzzles, and escape the station.
However, GameInformer.com mentions that there’s a reason behind the demo’s thirty-minute time-limit. Here’s what they stated in their post.
“Once that timer expires, you can’t play the demo anymore. If you die during the demo you’re free to restart, but that timer carries over between tries. If you beat the demo, you’re free to run through it again until the timer expires. But ostensibly, those 30 minutes are all you have.”
Apparently, when you finish the “1-Shot” demo, you’ll be awarded with an exclusive trailer from Capcom that can be watched multiple times, according to GameInformer.com.
If you thought Capcom was only going to drop Resident Evil 2’s “1-Shot” demo, you’re sadly mistaken. Along with the demo’s release, Capcom’s USA Twitter account posted the above image that showcases what consumer’s can expect from the Resident Evil 2 Collection’s Edition bundle. However, this image came with interesting news for Resident Evil fans, as @CapcomUSA_stated,
“In celebration of the Resident Evil 2 “1-Shot” Demo, we’re offering a prize pack of RE games – including a Resident Evil 2 Collector’s Edition!”
The Twitter account provided a link where fans can enter for a chance to win this amazing prize. According to their contest rules, it’s limited to the United States, and only one person will be selected to “receive a prize pack of physical, boxed copies of Resident Evil games for their choice of PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.” This includes the Resident Evil 2 and 7 Collector’s Edition bundles and many “other RE games.”
If you want to enter for a chance to win, click here and follow the instructions listed. The contest shows that consumers only have 11 days left to enter, so I’d hurry and enter while you still have the chance.
It feels good to be a Resident Evil fan right-now. With this demo announcement alongside the Resident Evil Collector’s Edition contest, it appears Capcom’s confident in this remake becoming a hit when it releases. We’ll see if all this marketing and hype surrounding the title will be worth it once the game releases on January 25th, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Today, the official Devil May Cry 5 Twitter account announced that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will be able to download and play a new Devil May Cry 5 demo on February 7th, 2019.
The Twitter account also tweeted that they plan to make Devil May Cry 5’s current demo (which is exclusive to Xbox One systems) unavailable soon, but promised players who’ve already downloaded it that they can still play it at their leisure.
According to Gematsu.com, Devil May Cry 5’s first demo was only available on Xbox One systems and that it was available to download on December 7th, 2017. They also report,
“As of today, it will no longer be available for download, but it will still be playable if you have it on your system.”
Considering how we’re two months away from the game’s official release on March 8th, 2019, it makes sense for Capcom to dish out another demo (a month before it releases) to heighten their fans’ excitement for the game. Though no details about the demo’s content has been revealed yet, we’ll make sure to keep you posted when more information about its content is shared to the public.
