Resident Evil 4 remake is set to launch on March 24, 2023. But will it be coming to Nintendo Switch?
One of Capcom’s most lauded games of all time, Resident Evil 4, is getting the remake treatment. Set years after the events of Resident Evil 2, which got its own remake back in 2019, Leon S. Kennedy has been tasked with rescuing Ashley Graham, the daughter of the President of the United States.
Ashley has been kidnapped and taken to a remote Spanish village, where Leon must fight his way through hordes of Las Plagas-infected villagers and violent cult members.
Resident Evil 4 remake will follow many of the same beats as the 2005 original, while drawing from elements of both the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 (2020) remakes. The remake will also feature improved characters models, environments and atmosphere, all of which is being built in the RE Engine.
With the game set to launch towards the end of this month, avid Resident Evil and survival horror fans will need to know which platforms they’ll be able to play on. So, will it be coming to the Nintendo Switch?
Is Resident Evil 4 remake on the Nintendo Switch?
Sadly, no. Resident Evil 4 remake will not be launching on the Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to dive into the remake via PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC.
It’s unclear whether the remake will eventually make its way to Nintendo Switch. Both Resident Evil 2 remake and Resident Evil 3 remake are now available on the Nintendo Switch years after initial release, but only as cloud versions.
It’s possible that Resident Evil 4 remake could receive the same treatment a few years down the line, though likely as cloud-only versions. At the time of writing, however, neither Nintendo or Capcom have confirmed Resident Evil 4 remake for the Nintendo Switch.
