Three’s a crowd…Of zombies — Resident Evil 3 remake announced

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.

Resident Evil 0, 1, & 4 Will Be Released On The Nintendo Switch eShop on May 21st, 2019!

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.

“European Switch owners will be able to grab all three games as separate digital downloads through the Nintendo eShop! More info coming soon.”

“North American Switch owners will be able to purchase Resident Evil Origins Collection at retail, bundling together both RE0 and 1! Stay tuned for more info.”

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.

For those unfamiliar with the titles’ history with Nintendo, Eurogamer.net summarized Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4’s origins with Nintendo. According to their article, they state that “Resident Evil 0 and 4 launched first for Nintendo GameCube, back during the days of Capcom’s close partnership with Nintendo and that it seemed likely for these titles to arrive on Nintendo’s latest console-handheld hybrid.

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.

We’ll be sure to update you all when the Resident Evil Twitter account shares more information about these Resident Evil titles.
