It’s felt like I’ve been hearing requests for Resident Evil 4 on Nintendo Switch for as long as the Switch has been available at this point. This perhaps isn’t surprising though. After all, the game is generally regarded as the best title in the franchise, with Capcom very much happy to release this game any new console that comes around. After a longer-than-expected wait for an announcement, it has been confirmed that Resident Evil 4 will be made available on Nintendo do Switch alongside two more Resident Evil games.
Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4 are coming to Nintendo Switch eShop on May 21!
Play all three masterpieces anywhere, such as:
– On trains 🚆
– During mansion tours 🏰
– Across the European countryside 🌄
Pre-orders start on Feb 28! pic.twitter.com/BCzatyoUhU

In a tweet shared by the series’ official twitter account earlier today, Capcom confirmed that not only is Resident Evil 4 finally going to be made available on Nintendo Switch in a few months time, but Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 1 will also be made available. This means that the remaster of the 2002 remake of the original Resident Evil as well as Resident Evil 0 will be made available on a portable device for the very first time, in turn allowing such games to be played anywhere. While Resident Evil 4 has been made available on just a few more platforms in the past (including mobile devices, meaning a portable version of this game does exist), the chance to play it on Nintendo Switch with its dedicated controllers could make it the definitive portable edition of the game.
If you live in the United States, it will also be possible to buy these games physically. Although no physical release for Resident Evil 4 has been announced at this time, strangely enough, a special Origins Collection will be sold physically on the Switch in North America that bundles Resident Evil 1 and Resident Evil 0 into one single release. Europe, on the other hand, will only be able to purchase any of these versions digitally, with release details for Japan currently unconfirmed.
Players won’t need to wait all that long to experience any of these games on the move, either, with the release of all 3 of these Resident Evil titles set for May 21st.
