The Nintendo Switch is Getting a Lot of Resident Evil Games in May

Resident Evil 0, HD Remaster, and 4 are all coming to the Switch on the same day.

If you're a Nintendo Switch owner and Resident Evil fan then it's your birthday, because three of the better games in the series are coming to the Nintendo eShop in May. In just a few months, Resident Evil HD Remaster, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will all grace the Switch with their corpse-y presence, and on the same day no less.

All three Resident Evil games will be coming out on the Switch on May 21 through the eShop. There's no mention of any physical release just yet, but digital pre-orders will begin on February 28. The three Resident Evil games will join Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations Collection already available on the platform, which combines the two Revelations games into a single package.

Capcom's official Twitter account confirmed that North American players will be able to purchase both Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil HD Remaster in the same Resident Evil Origins collection. The collection is separate from Resident Evil 4, which will be sold separately. Meanwhile European players will have to buy all three game separately, unfortunately. No prices were revealed for either Resident Evil, or the Resident Evil Origins bundle.

Resident Evil HD Remaster and Resident Evil 4 are considered two of the best games in the series. The first for its deft reimagining of the PS1 original, and the latter for modernizing the Resident Evil games with third-person action elements. Resident Evil 0 is bit more divisive, though I happen to like a lot of the environment designs and co-op puzzles. When we picked our Best 15 Games since 2000, Resident Evil 4 came in at number 15.

Capcom didn't take the opportunity to announce any new Resident Evil games for the Switch, like say, Resident Evil 2. Though there are likely technical limitations preventing a Resident Evil 2 port for the Switch, Nintendo Switch owners in Japan can play Resident Evil 7 on their consoles through streaming. So maybe something like that will be possible for Resident Evil 2 in the future?
