During the most recent Nintendo Direct, four big RESIDENT EVIL games were confirmed to be coming to the Switch soon. Surprise! The most recent Resident Evil game, Resident Evil Village, is among the titles coming shortly to Nintendo Switch. In addition, remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, as well as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, are coming to the system. In a nutshell, the Switch will soon be the site of a plethora of zombie-themed games.
This was announced at the most recent Nintendo Direct, with a short teaser showcasing gameplay from Village and the previous games in the series, all of which are now playable by far wider audiences. Cloud versions of the games will be made available. Therefore, physical copies will not be produced. Instead, these will be made digitally, which has several advantages. Not as enjoyable for those who want to consume media in physical form.
Welcome to the family, #NintendoSwitch.

Moreover, on December 2, the Switch will receive the impending Resident Evil Village downloadable content. The only drawback is that release dates for Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Biohazard have not been announced as of yet. But one would hope that we would find out that data rather quickly. The plot of Village, also known as Resident Evil 8, is as follows:
“The all-new scenario begins a few years after the horrific events of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, with protagonist Ethan Winters and his wife Mia settling down in a new place and trying to forget the trauma they endured. They start a new life together, and then tragedy strikes again. Ethan has to go back to hell to rescue his stolen daughter from BSAA captain Chris Redfield, who attacks their home.
Lately, Resident Evil has been riding a wave of popularity in the video game industry. Biohazard and Village are two of the most well-liked recent releases, receiving praise from critics and selling well at the box office.
Moreover, the reception to the latest remakes has been positive, with Resident Evil 2 selling over 10 million copies. Switch owners can now enjoy the recent awesomeness. The ease and accessibility may not be perfect, but the graphical degradation is probably acceptable in the grand scheme.
In addition to these Switch versions, we have also heard that a Resident Evil 4 remake is now in development and will release in 2023. However, a port of a similar nature may be made available for the Switch in the future.
On October 28, Resident Evil: Village will be available on the Nintendo Switch.
