The Nintendo Switch Is Getting Lots Of Launch Titles. Resident Evil Won’t Be One Of Them

Facebook | Twitter

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?

Is Your Body Ready For The Death Of Wii U?

The man himself Reggie Fils-Aime admitted, in an interview with Polygon, that Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s duel release for Wii U and Switch will be the final first party title for Nintendo’s forgotten system. 

Now this is not in any way to say that absolutely no new games will be released for the sophomoric silicon station, just that Nintendo will be focusing it’s in house game development on the Switch. It’s called ROI people. 

Gamers can also breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their favorite games to play with friends will not be losing online support anytime in the near future. After all brand new consoles, despite pre order hype, still take time for major adoption. 

All I can say is that I think Nintendo is playing this transition smart. They need to. After the marketing failure of the Wii U and the eventually gimmick that was the original, Nintendo cannot fail this generation. Supplying online support for some of Wii U’s biggest titles like Smash Brothers shows their fans that they are not being abandoned. But focusing hard on next generation development shows they know where their focus needs to be. 

What launch titles for the Switch are you excited about? Are you sad about the death of the Wii U?
