The Nintendo Switch is only a few titles away from having the full library of Resident Evil mainline games. These are the games currently available or coming soon to Switch:
- Resident Evil 0
- Resident Evil 1 (Remake)
- Resident Evil 4
- Resident Evil 5
- Resident Evil 6
- Resident Evil VII (Cloud)
But which RE titels are still missing?
And three are missing:
- Resident Evil 2 (Remake)
- Resident Evil 3
- Resident Evil Code: Veronica
While we do eventually see 3 and Code Veronica make it … we are not so sure about the RE2 remake because it was quite ambitious.
About Resident Evil
Resident Evil, known in Japan as Biohazard, is a Japanese horror media franchise created by Shinji Mikami and Tokuro Fujiwara, and owned by the video game company Capcom.
The franchise focuses on a series of survival horror games and includes live-action films, animated films, comic books, novels, audio dramas, and merchandise. The story follows outbreaks of zombies and other monsters created mainly by the Umbrella Corporation.
The first Resident Evil video game was released in 1996, taking place in a mansion overrun with zombies. The franchise has grown to encompass numerous sequels of various genres, incorporating elements of action, exploration, and puzzle solving, and storylines inspired by horror and action films. Resident Evil has been credited with popularizing survival horror games, as well as re-popularizing zombies in mainstream popular culture from the late 1990s onwards, leading to a renewed interest in zombie films during the 2000s.
Resident Evil is Capcom’s best-selling video game franchise, with 91 million units sold worldwide as of March 31, 2019.
