"Play all three masterpieces anywhere"
Focused on other platforms for now
Forget demanding a REbate – there's only one way to send Capcom a message
While Capcom’s announcement that Switch versions of Resident Evil Zero, 1 and 4 are coming on 21st May should be cause for celebration, the
"Whaddya buyin'? Sorry, there's a Switch Tax on that"
The news that Resident Evil HD Remaster, Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4 are all coming to Switch was met with a positive response recently, even if Capcom has made the whole purchasing approach totally and utterly confusing. While North American players
Change.org strikes again
Earlier this week, Capcom gave us solid Switch release dates for Resident Evil Zero, Resident Evil, and Resident Evil 4. Amazingly, all three games are coming to the console on the same day, but there was one slightly sour note tucked away in
"Play all three masterpieces anywhere"
Capcom is bringing Resident Evil Zero, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4 to the Switch in May, it has revealed. The three games will hit the eShop on May 21st. In North America, there will be the option to purchase Zero and RE1 in a box under the title Resident Evil Origins Collecti
Focused on other platforms for now
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...
You may well have noticed that a little game called Resident Evil 2 is launching today across PS4, Xbox One and PC, acting as a remake of the 1998 original that first launched on PlayStation. You may also be aware that the original game was ported to the Nintendo 64, with the console's limited cartridge storage space making that version...
Capcom’s Resident Evil franchise has seemingly peaked, with countless games and an entire run of movies released over the past three decades. Deadline Hollywood is now reporting the long-running survival horror series is set to become a Netflix Original television series. According to the source, the German production and...
Two CDs on one 64MB cartridge? Madness!
The Resident Evil series may be most closely associated with Sony hardware, but it's important to remember that it has been a platform agnostic franchise since the first entry, which, lest we forget, also made it onto the Sega Saturn. Since then, we've seen notable Nintendo instalments such as Resident Evil 4,...
What a surprise
Cloud gaming has proven to be a divisive subject; some feel it's a convenient and easy way to play games at a lower cost and with little space sacrificed. Others feel it's an unpredictable and buggy way to play something that should've just been ported properly. Regardless of how you feel, if you live in Europe or North America, you...
Worldwide release when?
Biohazard 7 - known as Resident Evil 7 in the rest of the world - has just been released on Switch in Japan. It's a cloud-based proposition which means you're playing a streamed version of the game from Capcom's servers, rather than running it direct from the console itself. There's no indication on whether or not Capcom has...
Anytime, some places, on your own
Cloud gaming is something that's been banded around for ruddy years now, and whilst it's had its successes and failures, it's never properly made its break into the public's hearts. That's not necessary about to happen when Resident Evil 7 comes to Japanese Switch through a cloud streaming system, but it's still...
A little while ago Capcom released Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 on the Switch, with some unique features such as amiibo support, HD Rumble (which is quite well done) and motion controls. We reckon they're pretty good experiences - the first is solid as expected, and the second is pretty...
Revelations brings to mind the glorious Resi 4 Wii Edition
If you mention 'motion controls' to some gamers they'll instantly recoil - "good grief no, I want the immersion that only buttons and sticks can bring". Oh ok, I'm exaggerating a little, but there is a contingent of eager gamers that shun motion controls at every turn. In some cases they...
Resident Evil is arguably the most prominent horror franchise in existence, spanning several consoles over a few generations, starting on the PlayStation. Though the series has taken some very different directions with all its spin-offs and sequels, the original still stands as a classic that is revered by many, even if it hasn’t aged all...
The former Nintendo exclusive gets reanimated for Switch
Like one of its famously implacable boss creatures, the Resident Evil series keeps mutating into new shapes. It also has the uncanny habit of getting back up again when you think it's done and dusted. The first Resident Evil Revelations was made for the Nintendo 3DS and released back in 2012,...
A geniune revelation?
Like one of its famously implacable boss creatures, the Resident Evil series keeps mutating into new shapes. It also has the uncanny habit of getting back up again when you think it's done and dusted. Resident Evil Revelations 2 was a cross-generational console game that launched a few years after the 3DS original. It remains...
"It's not viable for Capcom Europe to create a physical version"
We're really looking forward to getting our mitts on Resident Evil Revelations Collection when it lands on the Switch on 28th November. It's been public knowledge for some time that only the original Resident Evil Revelations will be on the Switch cart if you buy the physical...
It's a tasty Jill sandwich
November is jam-packed with tempting Switch releases ahead of the holiday season. As Resident Evil Revelations Collection lands on Switch on the 28th November, Capcom have revealed a new video which shows what you can expect, shown above. The collection of course includes both Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2,...
One of the standout games in the early 3DS library was that of Resident Evil Revelations, a refreshing return to form for the series. Since then, it’s been ported to just about every device that Capcom reasoned it could sell the game on, and has received a sequel in Resident Evil Revelations 2. Now that both are soon to be available on the...
Motion controls also supported
Remember the IR camera on the Switch Joy-Con? It was just one of the many tricks the controller was capable of, but so far it has only really been used in 1-2-Switch, despite offering plenty of potential. Thankfully, not everyone has forgotten about it - Capcom is using the camera in Resident Evil Revelations 1 &...
Optional though, so don't panic
Back when Capcom confirmed Resident Evil Revelations and its sequel for all current-gen systems (including the Switch), it referenced new control schemes. An updated fact sheet now sheds light on how this'll affect the Switch and it's good / bad / incomprehensible (delete as appropriate) news. Oh yes, we're going to...
Not quite in time for Halloween
Earlier this year it was confirmed that both Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 were coming to the Nintendo Switch. The former was originally on 3DS and then Wii U, but Nintendo gamers missed out on what was - at that point - the episodic sequel on PS4 / Xbox One / PC / ev
"I'm looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself"
This weeks sees the launch of Resident Evil 7, a title that effectively serves as a reboot of the famous survival horror series which began life back in the '90s. Resident Evil 7 does away with the globe-trotting action feel of the much-maligned sixth entry and instead keeps things...
Resident Evil 7 / Biohazard possibly heading the list
Just recently YouTube user OBE1Plays has shared another 'leak' on his YouTube channel; though it should be taken with a healthy dose of salt, it's nice for a little bit of debate. This time the report is that Capcom is trying to make Resident Evil 7 work with the proposed VR implementation on the...
V for Vendetta
As some of you may be aware, the Resident Evil series has had some extensive forays into films. While the live-action ones certainly haven't done too well critically, the two CGI films – Resident Evil: Degeneration and Resident Evil: Damnation – were at least received a little more warmly. Perhaps in an effort to make the best of...
Team "hard at work to deliver some amazing new surprises"
Resident Evil is now 20 years old, another landmark to make some of us feel rather old. Beginning with fixed camera angles, limited ammo and a spooky mansion, it's a series that's evolved to incorporate faster action - for better and worse, depending on the game - and a whole load of movies...
Got somethin' that might interest ya'
With Halloween creeping closer Nintendo is doing its bit, particularly through the eShop, to get us in the mood. It now turns out that 29th October will have a double whammy for Wii U owners in Europe - not only will Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water finally arrive, but Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition will also...
We love a bit of survival horror here at NL Towers, and Resident Evil 0 was one of our favourite GameCube games, along with the slightly more accessible Resident Evil 4 of course. What you might not have realised is that Resident Evil 0 was originally intended to be a Nintendo 64 game which was planned to come out in 2000. The game...
Wii U's fate seemingly sealed for the HD Resi re-releases
The Nintendo exclusive, Resident Evil Zero, was well received by fans and critics alike when it was originally released on the GameCube in 2002. The Wii port – released in 2008 – did not receive the same level of applause. This particular entry in Capcom's long-running survival horror...
Three games available for absolutely killer prices
If you live in North America and want to ramp up the scare factor this Halloween, then Capcom might have just the offer to get you in the mood. In a special Nintendo Halloween sale, Capcom will be offering three Resident Evil titles at significantly reduced prices across both the Wii U and 3DS...
"I don’t like female characters who are submissive to male characters"
Shinji Mikami is the man behind The Evil Within, a new survival horror epic which has recently launched on PS4 and Xbox One. However, his most famous creation has to be Resident Evil, a game which has sold millions and spawned numerous sequels, many of which have made their way...
Not too long ago we brought you the news of leaked assets for Resident Evil Revelations 2, which naturally raised the issue over whether it would arrive on Nintendo hardware. It looks, sadly, like old retail listings excluding Wii U and 3DS were correct. The title was officially confirmed at a pre-Tokyo Game Show event for Sony...
Headed to PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One
Capcom has confirmed that it is producing a HD remaster of the 2002 GameCube Resident Evil remake, and that the title won't be coming to the Wii U despite previously being a Nintendo exclusive. Set for digital launch next year, this new version of Resident Evil is coming to PC,...
Resident Evil, Capcom’s iconic and much lauded multi-million unit selling series needed to change. By 1999 the PlayStation was beginning to feel a little long in the tooth and just about every developer around had had a go at creating their own form of adventure-ish horror game, with Konami arguably putting up the best opposition...
A nice treat for North American Wii U and 3DS owners
It's that time of year again where people dress as werewolves and other spooky monsters, carve scary faces into pumpkins and dish out candy on Animal Crossing. Yes, it's Halloween and there are plenty of frightful franchises out there to get stuck into over the season, with Resident Evil being...
New features limited to HD version
3DS players wishing to play as the hairtastic Rachel in Resident Evil: Revelations will have to move on to the upcoming console version of the game, according to Capcom Senior VP Christian Svensson. Answering a fan request on the Capcom Unity forums, Svensson denied that any new content would come for the 3DS...
Digital copy will cost just $20, releases March 7th
Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will be hitting the North American 3DS eShop on March 7th, and will cost just $20 to download. Originally released as a retail title in 2011, the game has already been made available for download in Japan. As you'll know if you read...
Giving the fans what they want
Resident Evil: Revelations has been out on 3DS for just over a year, and soon we'll be able to play it in full HD as the game is now in development for Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Many people have wondered why Capcom made the decision to make the switch to home consoles, and whether or not this was all part of...
One less way to kill a zombie
Earlier on in the week we reported on the controller options that will be available to players in the upcoming Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations. It turns out the game will feature off-screen play and will also support the Pro Controller. However, those hoping for the ability to play with the Wii Remote and...
Exclusive features coming to Nintendo's console
Details relating to the Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations have been divulged in the latest issue of Official Nintendo Magazine, and it has been confirmed that the game will allow off-screen play and will also offer Pro Controller support. It has also been confirmed that the GamePad screen...
But game wasn't "a failure"
Resident Evil Revelations launched on the 3DS last year and was granted a positive critical reaction. It also sold well - but apparently not quite as well as Capcom was hoping. Speaking to Eurogamer about the
Updated version also allows you to wipe save data
Capcom has confirmed that 3DS title Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is getting an eShop release in Japan, alongside a "Best Price" physical release. The game was an early release for the 3DS back in 2011, and is possibly more famous for its undeletable save data than the quality of its...
Survival horror market is 'small'
Resident Evil series aficionados that have followed the franchise from day one have seen an evolution away from its original, survival horror roots towards an action style. With Resident Evil 4 on GameCube seen as a major turning point, it seems increasingly unlikely that a new experience similar to the early titles...
Remembering the horror
This week we've been celebrating the Resident Evil franchise, a series of games that has set the benchmark for survival horror and is perfect for this spookiest of months. Before we move onto our next Halloween horrors, some of the Nintendo Life team have cast their minds back to their experiences with Resident Evil titles and...
Playing from behind the sofa
The Resident Evil franchise has forged a reputation for inducing fear in the bravest of gamers. While the series has flirted with a more action-orientated focus, it's the survival-horror aspects that often stay in the memory. Features Editor Thomas Whitehead and writers/Resident Evil experts Zach Kaplan and Marcel van...
Undead on the big N, past, present and future
The claustrophobic darkness. The creeping undead. The hideous monsters. The Resident Evil series has brought such thrills and chills to our TVs since 1996, and it’s taken quite a unique path when it comes to Nintendo consoles. With the month of All Hallows’ Eve upon us, we decided to take a look at...
The Resident Evil way
As we get closer to Halloween and all of the ghouls and ghosts that come with the spookiest of holidays, we feel it’s time to start focusing on what’s important at this time of year: survival. With all of these monsters preparing to rise from their graves, or wherever they’ve been hiding, perhaps we should all plan for...
We know, we know. This review is a little late. I was going to make up some long winded story about how I had the review written out before a bunch of the undead stole my hard drive and took me on a wild goose chase around Raccoon City before I could get it back. I didn't think you'd believe that story though so I'll just come...
