Yesterday Capcom took to Twitter to announce that three classic Resident Evil games are coming to the Nintendo Switch.
The announcement includes the HD Remaster of the original game, RE 0, and RE4.
All three titles will launch on the Nintendo eShop on May 21.
We also learn that while European gamers will be able to purchase each of them separately, North American Switch fans will find the Resident Evil Origins Collection (including the HD Remaster of the first game and 0) at retail in physical form.
RE HD Remaster was originally released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC in 2015, bringing back the glory of the 1996 classic.
The remaster of 0 launched in 2016 for the same platforms, while the original game dates all the way back to 2002.
The fourth game is, of course, the youngest, with its original release in 2005, and an upscaled release for PS4 and Xbox One launched in the summer of 2016.
Unfortunately, at the moment there appear to be no plans to launch the recent remake of RE 2 on the Switch.
Below you can see the Japanese cover of the Resident Evil Origins Collection (including the original game’s and 0’s remasters), which will be priced 5,500 yen (around £37.69) plus taxes.
Resident Evil 4 will be launched in Japan stand-alone digitally on the Nintendo eShop for 3,056 yen (around £20.94) plus taxes.
Incidentally, the physical release of the Origins Collection will include a cartridge for 0 and a download code for RE’s HD remaster.
The three games will be released in japan slightly later compared to the west, on May 23.
