Resident Evil 7 has done incredibly well on the PS4 and Xbox One, so this is certainly good news to hear that it’s heading to the Switch. However it’s not in the form you’d perhaps expect and currently only releasing in Japan.
It’s going to be coming in the form of a “cloud version” which basically means you don’t have to download the game and all its data. However this also means that you need a stable internet connection to be able to play, whilst that isn’t hard to come by in this day and age it does take away the portability of the console when playing Resident Evil 7. It’s unlikely if you’re on a long journey in the car or on the bus that you’ll have access to wifi.
The game is stored on the cloud system, an internet domain in some respects so when you’d want to play this is the reason why you would need an internet connection. It’s releasing in Japan on May 24th and they also released this trailer to go with it:
Included with the game Japan are getting the Banned Footage Volumes 1 & 2, End of Zoe and Not a Hero which are noteworthy additions which will add that little bit extra to the play time. So no word on if it’ll be releasing elsewhere but it’s great news to hear more support for the Switch!
