In the most recent Nintendo Direct presentation, it was disclosed that four major RESIDENT EVIL games will soon be available for play on the Nintendo Switch. Surprise! Resident Evil Village, the most recent installment in the long-running video game franchise, will be one of several newer titles in the franchise that will soon be playable on Nintendo Switch.
In addition to this, the long-awaited remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 as well as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will at long last be available for purchase on the system. In a nutshell, the Switch will be receiving a substantial quantity of zombie-themed content in the not-too-distant future.

The Nintendo Switch
The announcement was made at the most recent Nintendo Direct, and it was accompanied by a short teaser that displayed some gameplay footage from Village, in addition to some footage from the other games in the series, which are now available to a significantly larger number of people.
The games will be made available for download via “cloud” versions, which means there will be no physical copies made available. Instead, these will be digital purchases, which are superior in a variety of respects to traditional ones. Simply disappointing for those who want the experience of real media.
The future downloadable content for Resident Evil Village will also be available on Nintendo Switch on December 2, which is another significant development. The one drawback, at least for the time being, is that the release dates for RE2, RE3, and Biohazard have not been announced.
On the other hand, we should anticipate that we will be exposed to such knowledge quite quickly. The village, also known as RE8, has the following plot summary for those who may be a little behind the times:
“A few years after the horrible events in the highly acclaimed Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, the all-new storyline opens with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living quietly in a new place, away from their previous horrors.
This is where the tale begins. They were just beginning to start a new life together when another terrible event befell them both. When the BSAA captain Chris Redfield launches an attack on their house, Ethan is forced to make another journey into hell in order to rescue his kidnapped daughter.
In recent years, the survival horror video game series Resident Evil has been riding something of a wave of popularity in the gaming world. Both critically and commercially, Biohazard and Village were very well received, placing them among the most well-liked entries that have appeared in the industry in recent memory.
In addition, the most recent remakes have been met with positive reception; for example, more than 10 million copies of Resident Evil 2 have been sold. Those fortunate enough to acquire a Switch will soon have the opportunity to take advantage of recent improvements. Although there might be a slight decrease in the quality of the graphics, the increased accessibility and convenience make the potential trade-offs more than likely worthwhile in the larger scheme of things.
A Resident Evil 4 remake is also in the works, and it is expected to be released sometime in 2023, as was revealed to us lately, in addition to the Switch ports. That one will not be available on the Switch (at least not right away), although it is possible that a port that is quite comparable to it may be developed in the future.
On October 28, Resident Evil Village will be available for purchase on the Nintendo Switch.
