Now we know when Resident Evil HD Remaster, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 are to release on Nintendo Switch, Capcom has also revealed plans to publish the Resident Evil Origins Collection at retail.
This physical edition will be made available in North America and Japan, and, as with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will bundle both the Resident Evil HD Remaster and Resident Evil 0 together in one package.
In Japan, it has been confirmed that Resident Evil 0 will be on the game card, with a supplied code letting you download Resident Evil HD Remaster separately from the Nintendo eShop.
RESIDENT EVIL HD REMASTER
In 1998 a special forces team is sent to investigate some bizarre murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Upon arriving they are attacked by a pack of blood-thirsty dogs and are forced to take cover in a nearby mansion. But the scent of death hangs heavy in the air. Supplies are scarce as they struggle to stay alive.
RESIDENT EVIL 0
The story of Resident Evil 0 takes players back to 1998. Reports have been mounting about unusual murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. The city’s Special Forces division, S.T.A.R.S., sends their Bravo Team – including rookie cop member Rebecca Chambers – to investigate. On route, the team’s helicopter suffers engine trouble and is forced to make a crash landing, where they find an overturned prisoner transport vehicle. Splitting up to search the area, Rebecca discovers the Ecliptic Express, a train stopped dead on the tracks. Inside, she meets death row convict and ex-Navy lieutenant Billy Coen.
Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4 will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on May 21st.
