Resident Evil Origins Collection - North American cover art

Two times the evil

Coming to the Nintendo Switch on May 21, 2019, Resident Evil Origins Collection includes remastered versions of the critically acclaimed Resident Evil and its popular prequel, Resident Evil 0. Both fans of and newcomers to the Resident Evil series, having sold over 88 million units to date, can experience the origins of the Resident Evil saga at home or on the go. The story in Resident Evil Origins Collection takes players back to July 1998. In Resident Evil 0, Raccoon City's Special Forces division, S.T.A.R.S., has sent its Bravo team to investigate mounting and unusual murders on the city's outskirts. Rookie S.T.A.R.S. member Rebecca Chambers teams up with death row convict and ex-Navy lieutenant Billy Coen in order to survive the nightmares that await them. Resident Evil takes place immediately afterward and players take on the roles of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, as they are forced to take shelter in a mysterious mansion filled with unimaginable horrors. Both games contain limited ammo and survival items, and players will need to keep their wits about them to survive nefarious traps, puzzles, and the undead.

I've never really seen a collection/compilation game that has cover art that I enjoy, and this cover continues that trend. It's just a basic mash-up of previous covers. It's lovely to see the games coming to Switch, but the cover art leaves a bit to be desired.

Oh look, another botched physical release from Capcom. You stingy gits! Not to mention they're more ports. Mega Man 11 remains the only new game they've put on Switch. Hardly a hardware taxing game, probably why they bothered. Sure like pretty much everything else they've done in Europe, it was borked. No physical release whatsoever. Go away Capcom. I don't want to hear about you until you give us new games and properly complete on physical cartridges.

..and two times the late ports.

More expensive also. But for the first time portable on a console-handheld system.

Put them both on the cartridge cheap ass.

IF they would be so cool, I would get both instantly! But they ain't so cool.

sure if you want this already expensive $60 game to balloon to 100 dollars

Would that really be the case, though? A Gamecube disc holds 1.5 gb of data. Both of those games factored together would be four discs, equal to 6 gb if they filled those discs completely. Naturally there will need to be some additional software involved to make the games work on Switch and have menus. But couldn't it all fit on a cheaper 8 gb cartridge? Would it need to go to 16 gb?

I don't know the specifics of porting something to Switch and how much space it takes up... maybe somebody can clue me in if I'm wrong.

Not hardly. RE:0 Uses some HD assets and such which I assume with some compression led to the 13.5 GB it has on the Switch eShop.

RE1 has 14.4 GB. They could release them standalone as individual games (I don't even get why they didn't do this with RE4 since that sells fine by itself) but on one cart together, it would need a 32GB which is still expensive due to the crappy storage medium Nintendo chose.

15 year old game should be 30 dollars. LIke they havnt made any money off of this game already.

And they are, on the eShop! With Dragon's Dogma being a similar size they could easily put RE4 on retail at $30 or these standalone at 30 each, but combined it's not gonna happen sadly.

It should be 2 seperate games no more then 30 each physical. Eshop it shouldnt be more then 15 20 bucks considering how old they are and how many times they have been ported. This is just a lazy cheap cash grab

I wish they would port Umbrella Chronicles.

I wish they would make some new games for Switch....

That's hard considering all their new games are running on a engine not optimized for the Switch.

Make a new engine? Start developing games from the ground up for Switch.

Capcom use to make exclusive games for the Wii all the time. Zack and Wiki, Resident Evil Chronicles, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Monster Hunter Tri, etc. Do that again. The Switch has more than proven itself already with both hardware and 3rd party software sales.

I suppose, I was just meaning their more recent new releases seem focused on using that new engine. I suppose the rumored Megaman X9 will be on Switch also. Monster Hunter will likely have a classic entry on Switch, and at some point I expect Street Fighter 5 have it's special turbochampionship portable edition X for the Switch, featuring Dante from Devil May Cry.

I would love that, but without the pointer the Wii had I am unsure how good it could be though...

Complain all you want. I want them to release a mega man battle network & legends collection.

Onimusha and SF30 were day and date releases with other systems. Capcom didn't really launch much besides MM11, DMCV, RE2R and MVCI in the past two years so there's really not much to compare it to since the latter three were in dev before Switch was a mainstream thing

Considering they put out anything I'm impressed. Sure most of the releases have been digital but that's better than getting nothing at all. Plus aside from a few odd design choices most of Capcom games have performed well on the system. I don't see what the problem really is except for physical collectors. It's not like Capcom isn't bringing the Switch games.

I mean, yeah, they've basically been doing well. Nothing about this support is really unusual considering how some PS3 games didn't make the jump to PS4 even after the system launched for similar reasons. I'm pretty confident this good support will continue and the only questionable thing is that Europe just doesn't get any physical releases from them, for some silly reason. But they still do well even there

Cheap cover for a cheap product from a cheap company.
