Will apparently be announced later this year
Last year, Capcom suffered a leak revealing a game called Resident Evil Outrage was scheduled for a Q4 2021 release. As previously stated by Capcom insider Dusk Golem, this title is apparently Resident Evil Revelations 3 (or at least was originally named that at some point during development) and will be...
Upcoming reboot takes us back to Raccoon City
Capcom might be busy preparing Resident Evil Village, but it isn't letting up with its adaptations. We were made aware of plans for Netflix series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness back in September and now, Sony Pict
Grab a bargain
Capcom just held its Resident Evil showcase celebrating 25 years of the series, and while there was sadly nothing on display for Switch fans, over on the eShop you can still get your fix - as most of the RE back catalogue is on sale in the US. This covers both the Switch and 3DS - with games like Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4...
Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil 3 led the charge
After that "customised ransomware attack" and a recent anti-trust fine, it's not been a great time for Capcom of late. Still, it seems that it's not all doom and gloom if the company's confidence in its current financial performance is anything to go by. After a recent meeting with...
Welcome back to Box Art Brawl, our regular poll to find out which region got the best cover art for a particular retro release. Last time, we looked at Capcom's DS gem Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective in honour of its 10th anniversary (in the West). The North American cover stormed it with over 60% of the vote, leaving Japan with a...
What surprises await?
Capcom will broadcasting a special Resident Evil Showcase on 21st January across YouTube, Twitch, Facebook and Twitter. It will be predominantly focused on the new entry
A scary thought
Capcom director, Shinji Mikami, this year celebrates his 30th anniversary in the video game industry. To mark this special occasion, he's done a lengthy interview with Variety discussing everything under the sun about his long-running career. During one section, he reflects on Resident Evil 4, which as you might recall, was...
"Outrage is RE Switch"
Capcom, as you might recall, suffered a massive leak not long ago. It seemingly confirmed a number of projects are on the way - including a game called Resident Evil Outrage, which is scheduled for Q4 2021. According to well-known Capcom insider Dusk Golem - who has made a number of
You can't escape the cloud
It seems as if the floodgates have opened for cloud game releases on the Nintendo Switch. Following on from the announcement of Hitman 3 and the release of Control on the eShop, dataminers have now supposedly uncovered evidence of Capcom's Resident Evil 3 remake coming to the hybrid system via c
Arriving next year
Netflix's library of video game series continues to grow, with the streaming giant yesterday announcing it would be creating a brand new show based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. In case you forgot, it also
Update: It's official
Update: Capcom has now officially announced its new Resident Evil CG anime Netflix series. It'll be arriving in 2021.

Split across two timelines
The rumoured Resident Evil Netflix series has been officially announced today, with the first confirmed details being revealed. The show, based upon Capcom's survival-horror series of games, is set to tell a brand new story within the Resident Evil universe set across two timelines. Netflix has shared an official...
On sale for a limited time
Update (Tue 16th Jun, 2020 09:45 BST): As a quick reminder, today sees the end of the Resident Evil sale on Switch in North America. In Europe, the sale will continue until 18th June, but if you're planning on buying any of these games from the North American store, you'll want to get on it sharpish. Original Article...
You sort the S.T.A.R.S. from the lickers
The Resident Evil series has evolved so much over the years that even hardened fans find it hard to pin down a favourite. Which brand of Resident Evil are we talking about? Do you prefer old-school tank controls and fixed camera angles, or are your tastes more action-oriented? Regardless of the individual...
80% of sales have come from outside of Japan
Capcom's survival horror series Resident Evil - also known as Biohazard in Japan - has reached a new milestone. The entire series to date has now shifted more than 100 million units worldwide. The series first started out in 1996 on the original PlayStation and since then has grown into the biggest...
Up to 60% off
Capcom has taken another bite out of its Resident Evil prices on the Switch eShop, reducing the mainline games in the series by up to 60%. These current offers apply to both the US and UK and will be available until 18th June. Keep in mind, the standard price per game is normally $29.99 / £29.99. That means you can get two games for...
Japanese veteran releases updated totals for its key franchises
There once was a time when Street Fighter was the most important series in Capcom's roster, and the company milked the franchise with yearly incremental updates. However, once the popularity of the 2D fighter began to wane, the company looked to the world of 3D for its next smash hit,...
RIP, Paul Haddad
The Resident Evil series has resurfaced in recent years – with Capcom remaking and re-releasing a number of classic entries. There have even been rumours about more remakes, and a completely new game, in recent weeks. With this in mind, it's incredibly sad to hear P
And why isn't Capcom bringing them to Switch?
Following whispers last week that the next numbered Resident Evil game was in the works, further rumours surfaced over the weekend of an incoming remake of Resident Evil 4, a game originally developed as a GameCube exclusive as part of the fabled
One of the standout releases during the Nintendo GameCube generation was Resident Evil 4. It's probably hard to believe nowadays, but back then the fourth mainline entry in Capcom's survival horror series was a temporary platform exclusive. If you played the original in 2005, you might be interested to hear it's getting a remake...
We don't care what the subtitles say, that's definitely not Jill. The new, shiny Resident Evil 3 remake landed on other platforms towards the end of last week, bringing its fair share of scary moments and stunning visuals, but this particular sight is arguably more terrifying than anything else the game has to offer. Modder Crazy Potato has...
Nemmy gonna get ya
Welcome once again to Box Art Brawl, the weekly poll which places three regional box art variants before the eyes of you lovely people and awaits your "yay"s and "nay"s. Last week we took to the streets with Axel, Blaze, Zan and Sammy (and Roo) in Streets of Rage 3. We looked at three very different covers, but Japan emerged from...
What is that doing in there?
Last week, players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were treated to a demo of the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake, which is following in the recent Resident Evil 2 remake's footsteps by skipping Switch. Curiously, a data miner has reportedly discovered a number of references to
Capcom's 'Platinum Titles'
As you may be aware, Capcom keeps a record of its million-selling games for public viewing on its website. The list gets updated with each quarter, and new figures correct as of 31st December 2019 have now been posted. We've shared the full list for you below; it's interesting to note that Okami HD, Mega Man 11 and
Takes place 26 years after the discovery of the T-Virus
Details for Netflix's upcoming Resident Evil series have leaked online after they were accidentally uploaded on a press-only website. According to the synopsis – which has now been removed – the series will take place in the fictional town of Clearfield, Maryland – a setting which hasn't...
Update: Turns out it was a mistake
Update (Mon 20th Jan, 2020): Mighty Ape has admitted that the listings were a mistake and that the games are only being released in digital form. Boo. Original Story (Mon 6th Jan, 2020 11:00 GMT): Both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6
Welcome again to Box Art Brawl, the weekly bout that sees regional variants of retro games compete to see which has the most attractive box-based visage. Last week featured a load of old balls - monkey balls, that is - as Super Monkey Ball 2 bounced off itself in battle. You lovely people decided that the European variant was the...
Prepare for scares
Capcom's Resident Evil series has well and truly made itself at home during the Switch generation. Not long ago we saw the release of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on the eShop, and before then we got the fourth game and the Resident Evil Origins Collection. To top it off, Nintendo's all-star fighting game Super Smash Bros...
In a similar way to the Resident Evil Origins Collection and the Resident Evil Revelations Collection, Capcom has decided to bundle its three most recent Switch ports into one physical package. Labelled the Resident Evil Triple Pack, it includes not only series jewel Resident Evil 4 (appearing on cartridge
Global terror on a portable scale
Okay, here’s the thing… Resident Evil 6 isn’t that bad. Wait, hold on, just hear us out. First released back in 2012, it genuinely felt as if the once mighty survival-horror franchise had hit rock bottom. Atmospheric environments and terrifying, lethal enemies were replaced by sprawling cities, gun-toting...
We need your help to sort the undead horde
Thanks to everyone who has voted so far - for anyone who missed it, there’s still time to select your picks for the best Resident Evil games below. We’ll see you Thursday for the REsults... With All Hallows' Eve creeping up on us, it's that time of year to close the curtains, huddle in front of the TV...
Boulder punching action
Resident Evil 5 is a pretty controversial game. Don’t worry, we’re not going to go into the allegations raised against the game prior to its release more than a decade ago. Instead, Resident Evil 5 is controversial in the sense that many people believe it to be the title that killed the survival-horror franchise...
Control how you play
Today marks the release of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on the Switch eShop. Timed in with this launch is a patch for both games – adding gyroscopic and motion control support. Capcom revealed this information via the official Resident Evil games Twitter account: If you would like to find o
Earlier this week, we got a scary surprise when Capcom released demos for Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on the Switch eShop, ahead of the big release later this month. So, how do they hold up compared to existing versions? The experts over at
But are they still infected?
It's Thursday, which means it's download update day, where Nintendo announce the horde of games shuffling their way onto the eShop over the coming days. This week was no exception and, like usual, us mere survivors were thrown some scraps in the form of sale items, (AKA: health items for our weary wallets). Whilst...
What'll it be, stranger?
And we're back! Welcome to the third edition of Box Art Brawl, the series where we ask you lovely people to decide which lucky territory got the best box art of a certain retro classic. Last week we looked at Contra (or Probotector as it was known in Europe) and it was decided that the North American muscle-bound variant was...
Plus a sneaky North American physical release for RE4
Announced during the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct broadcast, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 are both dropping on the Switch eShop on 29th October. Previously pencilled in for a 'Fall' release, the date has been confirmed by the official Resident Evil Twitter account. Both games will be available...
Another couple of Evils for ya, stranger
In the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct it's been confirmed that Capcom is bringing both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 to your favourite hybrid handheld console this autumn. The segment started off with a young couple heading to a mansion to play the recently released original Resident Evil on their Switch,...
Zero on the cart
With the original Resident Evil, its prequel and Resident Evil 4 all arriving as separate digital releases on the Switch eShop, survival horror fans have a bumper helping of the seminal series’ back catalogue to enjoy on-the-go. North American and Japanese gamers (tough luck, Europe) also have the option of getting two of those...
Capping off the trio of games from Capcom's survival horror series to drop simultaneously on the eShop, Resident Evil 0 is a prequel to the seminal original and something of a black sheep in the family. First developed for Nintendo 64 before shifting to GameCube, it launched in 2002 just after REmake and, standing in direct comparison,...
REvisit the survival horror
The original Resident Evil is a strange creature. Despite being tinkered with various times and receiving a substantial facelift, the core game seems unnaturally resistant to modification and remains resolutely of its time. It’s somewhat fitting that the fundamental mechanics refuse to be fiddled with, and each...
What a lovely position for the Switch to be in, hmm? The eShop is bulging with quality games – ported, brand new, indie, AAA – and every week there’s a fresh delivery. It says something that one of the very best video games of all time is slipping out on a Tuesday as a digital-only release. And Resident Evil 4 still is one...
Play like it's 2005
If you haven't already heard the news, Resident Evil 4 on the Switch does not factor in motion controls from the 2007 Wii re-release. This newer version of the game is said to be a straight conversion of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One high-definition update from a while ago. In saying this, one interesting discovery – as...
A swing and a miss?
We’re currently playing our way through Resident Evil 4 for our review, and while the prospect of once again enjoying what is perhaps the zenith of the entire franchise has pleased us greatly, there’s one thing missing from the Switch port: motion control. It would seem that Resident Evil 4 on Switch is very much a straight...
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...
