Nintendo is planning to get out of the gate hard this spring. We have gotten confirmation on numerous titles for the launch date and window (first three months of launch). We’re getting many of our favorite characters and some third party remastered content. However Capcom just confirmed Resident Evil will be missing the party.
The current producer of Resident Evil Mashachika Kawata and director Koshi Nakanishi sat down with Express Online magazine to discuss the possibilities of the Switch.
In the interview Kawata admitted “I’m looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself, but we have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch”.
Is this a diss towards the budding new system? Hardly as Capcom has a deep history with Nintendo and many other of their titles are slated for release on the Switch.
All in all this is a hit to the Switch as Resident Evil is a popular series and anticipated new installment, but it’s hardly a death nail.
Also. The game comes out tomorrow. Who’s excited?
