Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 Release on the Switch This November, Has Motion Controls

I'm using tilt controls!

It won't be long now until a Resident Evil game is on the Nintendo Switch. On November 28, Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 will be released on the portable-hybrid-home console.

Individually, the games will be sold for $19.99, or alternatively $39.99 bundled together. In terms of a physical version, Revelations 1 will be sold as a physical copy with a cartridge and contains a digital copy of Revelations 2 within it as well. Both Switch versions of the game come with all the DLC that have come to the games before, making them a full package.

Since they wouldn't be Switch games without special functionality, the games will also be outfitted with an optional motion control scheme using the JoyCons. The motion controls will allow players to aim and shoot, and even shaking them to help themselves bust free if they're grabbed by an enemy. Of course, the game will also have HD Rumble support for its JoyCons.

In a way, this will be like a return home for the Revelations franchise, which got its start back on the Nintendo 3DS before getting a shiny HD upgrade. The version being ported to the Switch is a version of the latter, which was originally designed for last-gen consoles. On August 29, Revelations 1 and 2 were released on current gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
