Capcom has announced that a selection of classic Resident Evil games will be made available on the Switch in 2019. No, RE2 isn’t one of them.
Doesn’t it make sense to you that RE2, in its original form, would be hitting the Switch? With the remake for modern consoles and all, it seems perfectly reasonable, no? And yet, it isn’t one of the legacy Evil titles that Capcom has announced for the console.
That doesn’t dull some of the coolness factor here however as having more RE on Switch can only be a good thing. And two out fo the three of these games are absolute classics, so there’s that too.
The publisher revealed that a trio of Evils are on the way for next year, including:
- Resident Evil
- Resident Evil 0
- Resident Evil 4
Capcom is bringing multiple fan favorites to Nintendo Switch! Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will each be launching on Nintendo Switch in 2019! We’ll have more info soon!

Unfortunately, that’s all we know right now. Presumably, these games will be hitting the eShop, but they could be more than just individual releases. Could Capcom be planning a “Nintendo-themed” compilation? Might there be some new additions, or extras included? You never know.
As you can see, there’s no clarification on just what version of the first RE this set of releases will see either. I think it’s somewhat safe to assume it’ll be the GameCube “remake” though. That’s especially likely if this does turn out to be a compilation.
We’ll have more for you as it’s available.
