Capcom is exploring the possibility of bringing more cloud-based games to the Nintendo Switch, The Wall Street Journal has reported.

The Japanese giant recently released a cloud-based version of Resident Evil 7 on the console in Japan, using a unique rental system where players pay for game time.

A Capcom spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal that the company was waiting to see how successful Resident Evil 7 is on Switch before deciding what other games to bring over.

We tried Resident Evil 7 recently and found it was near impossible to play properly outside of Japan due to connection issues, although it does have an English language option. There's no word on a western release as yet.
