Resident Evil Revelations Collection Coming to the Nintendo Switch Later in 2017

Look! More Capcom games on the Switch!

Just days after Capcom announced that it was planning more Switch titles, the Japanese video game company announced that both Resident Evil Revelations games are coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.

The Switch versions of Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 were announced alongside a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the first Resident Evil Revelations, coming out on August 29.

For the Switch release Capcom will be releasing a physical version called the Resident Evil Revelations Collection, which will include a cartridge for the first Resident Evil Revelations game as well as a voucher for a digital version of Revelations 2. The physical version will be priced at $39.99 while both games will be available digitally for $19.99 each.

Resident Evil Revelations was originally a Nintendo 3DS title starring Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigated a zombie-ridden cruise. It was later ported to the Wii U and then to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Resident Evil Revelations 2 followed in 2015 and starred Claire Redfield along with Barry Burton's daugther Moira. The sequel was released across most major platforms including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Capcom earlier said that strong sales for Ultra Street Fighter 2 would lead the way for more Capcom titles on the Nintendo Switch, but didn't clarify if the company meant more enhanced ports or original games. The Resident Evil Revelations partly answers that questions as another Capcom game gets ported to the Nintendo Switch.
