Believe it or not, but Capcom’s survival horror series Resident Evil once had incredibly strong ties with Nintendo hardware. During the GameCube era it was difficult not to mention the stunning line-up of games on the system without making a reference to one of the temporary platform exclusives such as Resident Evil 4 or Resident Evil Zero.
Since then, Nintendo’s devices have missed out on certain entries in the series, with Capcom instead releasing games such as Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D on the 3DS and re-releasing older games on the Wii with motion support. In more recent times, the attention has been on the Resident Evil 2 remake for modern hardware. It's got fans and Switch owners alike wondering if the multi-platform release will ever make its way across to Nintendo's hybrid device. It may or may not happen, depending on how you read into the following response Capcom's Brand Manager Mike Lunn provided GameRant with at E3 2018:
"No, not at this time. We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment."
On a more positive note, Switch owners can at least look forward to experiencing Resident Evil, Resident Evil Zero, and the much-adored Resident Evil 4 (again), following Capcom's announcement last October that all three games would be headed to the system in 2019.
