It's Monday in Japan, meaning it's time for some new announcements. Capcom has released a trailer for Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version, which brings the last Resident Evil to Nintendo Switch. The game will include the base Residen Evil 7, and its additional content: Banned Footage Vol. 1, Banned Footage Vol. 2, End of Zoe, and Not a Hero.
Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version is coming to Switch in Japan on May 24, 2018. It's worth noting that "Cloud Version" in the title, because that's key to this release. The game will cost 2,000 yen ($18.02, but probably $19.99 on our shores), but that won't get you the full game. Instead, 2,000 yen gets you 180 days of playtime, and we assume you'll have to buy another 180 days once that's up. Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version is only a 45MB download and requires a constant internet connection. 180 days is likely enough time to finish all the content available though.
We don't have any word of an English release yet, but we'll keep you apprised. This is kind of an odd way to release Resident Evil 7, especially when you could just do a straight up release. Hopefully, the Western release will offer a more traditional release option.
