Another major AAA release is being crossed off on the list of possible Nintendo Switch titles. Resident Evil 7 latest to add to the list.
With only 2 days left until the launch of the latest from Capcom, the Producer has explained that his latest Resident Evil is not planned for Nintendo Switch. Producer Masachika Kawata and Director Koshi Nakanishi recently had little to say to Sunday Express in regards to why the latest title isn’t currently in the plans.
“We have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch.”
Unfortunately, this only adds to the latest list of major 3rd party developers not releasing their content on the Nintendo Switch. Just recently EA Bioware announced that Mass Effect: Andromeda would not make its way to Switch. 2k Games additionally explained that Borderlands 3 wouldn’t make it either due to Nintendo being interested in other games.
Whether gamers should be worried about their favorite franchises spelling doom for the yet to be released system is yet to be determined. The Producer and Director of the latest Resident Evil did have positive news for the switch. They went on to say that “it’s a very unique piece of hardware,” and that they are “looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself.”
The official box cover plot synopsis and box art:
“When a film crew goes missing on the outskirts of a rural American town, you, an up-and-coming Police Officer are sent to investigate their last known location; an old, rundown plantation era manor. Before long, the reason for the film crew’s disappearance becomes clear as you encounter horrifying unknown creatures roaming the manor and the surrounding land.”
Resident Evil 7 is rated M for Mature and launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC January 24 in the USA and Europe. Japan release follows on January 24. If you are looking for a Resident Evil on Switch, enjoy this tweet for now.
