Capcom changes Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 & 2 cover art

Remember when the cover art for Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 & 2 featured a giant banner at the top warning users about a required download? Well that required download is still there, but Capcom has removed the banner from the game's cover art. Now you can find that information on the back of the box. It certainly looks better, but I worry some consumers will be left angered when they find out the game card only contains half the games.

Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version coming to Switch in Japan

Remember the rumor of Resident Evil 7 coming to the Switch? Well now it's come true...sort of. Capcom has announced Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version for Switch, which is set to launch in Japan on May 24th, 2018. The download is just 45MB, as you'll be playing it through a cloud service. This cloud option includes all the game's DLC.

As you might have guessed, you'll need a steady online connection to play this one, since you're streaming it to your Switch. You get 15 mins of free play, and then you'll need to buy a 2,000 Yen ticket to play more. Your ticket lasts 180 days. This version doesn't contain an English option, and no mention of a North America/European version has been made.

Thanks to TheDestructo94 and Enigmaxtreme for the heads up!
