As mentioned, perhaps the biggest deal around Resident Evil 2And the Resident Evil 3And the Resident Evil 7And the Resident Evil Village Coming to the Nintendo Switch is that it makes it possible to access almost the entire mainline series on the platform. For a long period of time, like games vampireAnd the Resident Evil 4And the Resident Evil 5, and many other spin-offs on the Switch. While other entries like Resident Evil: Veronica Code It seems like they won’t be porting to the Switch anytime soon, so it’s still great to see that Capcom has focused on making this franchise so easily playable. While many other games from the past are still stuck on older platforms, these continued ports are most welcome.
