About Resident Evil Nintendo Switch Versions
Cloud versions of the acclaimed Resident Evil™ 2, Resident Evil™ 3, and Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard are also now in development for Nintendo Switch and planned for release later this year. These titles were all made possible with Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, which also powers Resident Evil™ Village.
A demo for Resident Evil Village Cloud is available to stream beginning today via the Nintendo eShop. This demo allows players to test out their internet connections with the experience for a limited time. After trying the demo, players can pre-order or purchase the full game through the same app.
Resident Evil Village
Set following the events of Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard, Resident Evil Village resumes the Winters family saga with a new nightmare where Ethan is hunted by the mysterious inhabitants of a remote village. Resident Evil Village continues Ethan’s adventures in the first-person view, bringing the series’ signature survival horror scares and pulse-pounding action up close and personal. The Winters’ Expansion will introduce “Third Person Mode,” additional characters for “The Mercenaries,” and “Shadows of Rose,” a new story set 16 years after the main game following the journey of Ethan’s daughter Rosemary.
- First-Person Action – Players will assume the role of Ethan Winters and experience every up-close battle and terrifying pursuit through a first-person perspective.
- Familiar Faces and New Foes – Chris Redfield has typically been a hero in the Resident Evil series, but his appearance in Resident Evil Village seemingly shrouds him in sinister motives. A host of new adversaries inhabiting the village will relentlessly hunt Ethan and hinder his every move as he attempts to make sense of the new nightmare he finds himself in.
