Resident Evil 2 Nintendo Switch Release Not In The Cards, Says Capcom
The remake for Resident Evil 2 garnered a lot of support this month from its gameplay reveal, demo, and presentation at E3. Not simply because of its phenomenal photo-realistic visuals, but its revamped combat system and the general exhibition of the game in its entirety. It takes nostalgia gaming to a whole new level by making the original game even better. The remake takes players back to the dilapidated Raccoon City during a horrific zombie outbreak made of nightmares and though it will release on all major platforms, it looks like the Nintendo Switch will not be one of them.
According to a Capcom brand manager, Mike Lunn, their efforts are currently on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Lunn was asked if there was a possibility of a release later down the line, but the answer will likely disappoint fans. “No, not at this time,” he told Gaming Bolt. “We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment.”
Taking into consideration to capabilities of the Nintendo Switch are lower in comparison to its counterparts, it seems unlikely that the hybrid console could handle the game’s intense system requirements. On a more positive note, Resident Evil 2 will feature two separate campaigns for both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield until they both meet. The game will host a variety of challenges including puzzles and the exploration of unknown with the looming fear of death around each corner.
Return to Raccoon City in Resident Evil 2 when it releases on January 25th, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
