Capcom says Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version was released for 'technological research,' still deciding whether to release more cloud games

Capcom has talked a bit more about Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version, which was released for Switch in Japan awhile back. According to an internal Q&A, Capcom put the game out as a bit of technological research, and it didn't have a significant impact on earnings.

"While we did release a certain title supporting cloud gaming in the first half, this was done primarily for technological research purposes and did not have a significant impact on earnings. Based on the results of the research, we will internally consider further expansion into cloud gaming."

This isn't the first time Capcom has said that they'll consider more cloud versions of games for the Switch. We'll just have to hang tight and see what decision they make once they feel like sharing.

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!

No plans for Resident Evil 2 Remake on Switch at this time

Were you hoping for the Resident Evil 2 Remake to come to Switch? Capcom brand manager Mike Lunn was asked if there were any plans to bring the title over to Switch down the road. His response is as follows.

“No, not at this time. We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment."

Resident Evil 7 Cloud - footage

Keep in mind that this was only released for Japan, and the footage includes someone streaming it from within the United States. I'd imagine the situation is better for those living in Japan.

Resident Evil 2 - New world record speedrun clocks in at 48 mins

Been quite some time since I've played Resident Evil 2. I've been feeling pretty nostalgic for the first few Resident Evil games. I know their style is considered quite clunky today, but there's still something about it I really enjoy. I wonder if Capcom would ever go all-out and make another entry in the franchise just like the classics.

Resident Evil Revelations on Switch sells 250k

Looks like Capcom's idea to bring Resident Evil Revelations over to Switch was a good one indeed. Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil Revelations on PS4/XB1/Switch sold 500k altogether. The breakdown is 100K Japan, 270K overseas, and 130K Digital versions. Of that 500k, the Switch version made up 250k in sales!

Digital Foundry - Resident Evil Revelations Collection analysis

In the end, bearing in mind the reduced overhead offered by the Tegra hardware, the Switch port is decent. It loses some visual fidelity and performance over the other current generation console versions but still manages to come close. We had fun with these games but the bottom line is that if you're planning to play these games on a TV, you could do a lot better elsewhere. Revelations 2 is simply better on PS4, Xbox One and PC while Revelations 1 has a nice PC port to smooth out its issues.
