Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 physical release "not viable" for Capcom in Europe

When it comes to our friends in Europe, it looks like Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 will be eShop-only. Why is that, you ask? Capcom shared a statement with Nintendo Life in which they said a retail release wasn't viable.

Capcom has to take various factors into account when deciding what format to deliver our titles to our fans. These can include but are not limited to overall production costs, manufacturing times, distribution, and first party regulations. In the case of Resident Evil Revelations, we've found that unfortunately it's not viable for Capcom Europe to create a physical version of the title on Nintendo Switch for our territories, however we will be making this available as a digital release.

Make of that what you will, but it sounds like a raw deal to me. At least Resident Evil fans can import the retail copy if they want, since the Switch is region free.

I really do feel that Revelations 1 & 2 are great continuations of what made Resident Evil 4 so wonderful. Perhaps 1 does a better job than 2, but both are quite a bit of fun. If you get in on the co-op action in 2, the game is a real blast!

Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 - amiibo and touchscreen support confirmed

Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 amiibo and touch screen confirmed

Thanks to the eShop listing over in Japan, we now have confirmation on Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 featuring amiibo support. We still have no idea what they'll do, though!

Also worth pointing out is the fact that the game will support touchscreen input when in handheld mode. Again, we don't know how this feature will be used just yet. Thanks to hakannakah627 for the heads up!

Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 may support amiibo

We've been through this song and dance before, so we don't want to flat-out say this is a confirmation. The Japanese eShop listing for Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 shows that the games will have some sort of amiibo functionality. Now we've seen other games listed on the eShop with amiibo functionality, only to have that turn out to be false. We'll try to get comment from Capcom on this to see if the listing is correct. Thanks to Cipher DX for the heads up!
