Capcom have announced that three Resident Evil titles will be ported to Nintendo Switch in 2019. They are the usually well liked Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4, so Switch users will be able to pop zombies on the go.

Should Capcom's gaming branch go down the hill one day, the company will have a bright future in farm investment as they seem to love milking. At least, that is the case with Resident Evil franchise, but thankfully, instead of pumping out a half baked title, they have decided to branch out to Nintendo Switch by porting some of the best games in the series.

Currently, there is no info on how much each of these games will cost, or whether Switch players will get the remastered versions. Bearing in mind that Switch posesses decent hardware, it's not a long shot if one would hope to get the remastered versions as they already work fine on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Resident Evil 0 boasts fantastic review scores, with 87 per cent positive reviews on Steam, even though the game was originally intended for consoles only. This pretty much says that the port was well done, so Switch users will likely be in for a polished, bug-free treat as well.

Resident Evil 4 was a different story initially, in part thanks to the changes in camera angle. This particular game changed the way Capcom handled camera angles in all future Resident Evils, but it initially didn't support aiming with mouse, which resulted in clunky mechanics. It is still accepted as one of the best games in the franchise though, and the remastered version brought much needed fixes, on top of giving the game a face-lift.

While one could debate which version of Resident Evil 4 would come to Switch, that is not the case with the original Resident Evil since it's not likely many people would pay for blocky graphics from the original PlayStation. On the other hand, people could arguably pay money just to hear the Jill sandwich line again.
