RUMOR: Cloud version of Resident Evil 3 for Switch being explored

Not the version fans were hoping for

Earlier in the week, some information popped up that gave Switch owners hope that Resident Evil 3 was heading to Switch. Data was found within Resident Evil 3's source code that mentioned Switch specifically, which certainly could be seen as an indicator of a Switch version in the works. Now we're hearing a bit more info, and it's not likely to make fans happy.

According to Daniel Ahmad, Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, Capcom is currently looking into a cloud version of Resident Evil 3. Capcom offered a cloud version of Resident Evil 7 for Switch, which only saw release in Japan. No word on if that'll be the case for Resident Evil 3 as well, but we do know that Capcom has no plans for a native port of the game.

Retailer says their physical listings for Resident Evil 5 & 6 were a mistake

Evil intentions

Well that's a real bummer. Mighty Ape posted up retail versions of both Resident Evil 5 & 6 on Switch not that long ago, and both were up for preorder. Unfortunately, it seems both listings were a mistake. Mighty Ape has now cancelled preorders, and went on record saying Capcom is only releasing these games digitally.

Thanks to JPSwitchMania for the heads up!

Resident Evil Revelations Collection seeing 'Best Price' release in Japan

Just a moment!

The Resident Evil Revelations Collection, which includes two games in one package, is going to see a 'Best Price' release in Japan. The new deal goes live on Dec. 13th, 2019, and nets you Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 for just $40. Remember, the first game is on a game card, and the second is a code.

Resident Evil Triple Pack doesn't offer My Nintendo Gold Points (UPDATE)

Gone gold

UPDATE - This issue seems to have been worked out, as 30 points are now being offered for Resident Evil 4. Thanks to Conangiga for the heads up!

If you were hoping to get some Gold Points from the Resident Evil Triple Pack, get ready to be disappointed. Apparently not a single game in the pack offers up Gold Points. That goes for Resident Evil 4 on the cartridge, and the Resident Evil 5 & 6 download codes.

Resident Evil 6 - more gameplay

Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 is a dramatic horror experience that cannot be forgotten. The game spans across various areas of the globe starring multiple playable characters, including fan favorites and new faces. Jump into the fray either solo or up to 4-player co-op in 4 dramatic chapters of the campaign or head into one of multiple extra modes such as Survivor that pits up to 6-players against one another in a heated battle. This edition includes all DLC, along with two costumes per main character, originally unlockable exclusively through Residentevil.net, that are now unlockable through the game itself.
