About a month ago, the video game publisher and developer Capcom announced Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 are set to arrive on the Nintendo Switch console sometime during late 2017. Now, the company has officially revealed that the survival horror titles are going to be making their way onto the Big N’s latest system on November 28, 2017 in Europe and North America, and on November 30, 2017 in Japan.
Capcom made the announcement regarding the games’ port onto the Nintendo Switch by way of a tweet from the official Resident Evil Twitter account to let fans know exactly when they can yet again follow along through the stories involving Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, and Barry Burton. Aside from Resident Evil: Revelations‘ debut on the Nintendo 3DS, this is the first time that the original game and its sequel will be appearing on an actual Nintendo console.

Interestingly enough, the North American version of Resident Evil: Revelations 1 and 2 will be sold separately as $20 downloads or bundled together in a $40 physical copy with the first game being available on a cartridge and the sequel being available via download code. Without a doubt, for fans who have yet to experience these titles, the $40 bundle is a great price to give the games a go on the Nintendo Switch.
For those unaware, the Nintendo Switch versions of both Resident Evil: Revelations games will include all of the add-ons that have been released. Not to mention, the titles will also have Joy-Con control schemes that lets players use the right peripheral’s motion controls to aim, reload, shoot, and perform knife attacks, while the left one allows fans to shake it to break free after being grabbed by enemies. Furthermore, HD Rumble will be present, and Raid Mode can be played online in the first game, while the sequel offers online or local co-operative multiplayer.
Taking all of this into consideration, the Nintendo Switch versions of Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 should not only provide a great way to revisit the survival-horror titles, but also will assist in beefing up the console’s catalog of games. Of course, should fans wish to eschew playing them on the Big N’s newest hardware, they can always experience the releases on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 are set to launch on November 28, 2017 in Europe and North America, and on November 30, 2017 in Japan for the Nintendo Switch.
