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.

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.
