Resident Evil 7, at least based on early reviews, is a chunk of good news for franchise fans. Word has it that itâ€™s a great experience. Thatâ€™s huge.
Whatâ€™s not so huge is the word from Capcom regardingÂ Resident Evilâ€˜s future with Nintendo. More specifically, we have news thatÂ Resident Evil 7 isnâ€™t being made for the Nintendo Switch. At least not yet, anyways.
Speaking withÂ Express UK, Capcom Producer Masachika Kawata noted that the Switch is â€œa very unique piece of hardware.â€ He went on to say thatÂ Resident Evil isnâ€™t being developed for it.
â€œIâ€™m looking forward to the possibilities of the system itself, but we have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch.â€
This puts a dent in Nintendoâ€™s third-party support
Time to prep the gallows for the Nintendo Switch? Not quite. Still, with the launch of a really good video game always comes questions regarding whether or not itâ€™ll release on such-and-such platform. Thatâ€™s no different for the Nintendo Switch andÂ Resident Evil 7.
Itâ€™s a bummer that Nintendoâ€™s seemingly swelling third-party support couldnâ€™t attract Capcom forÂ RE7, but maybe this comes down to extenuating circumstances. Weâ€™ll let you know if things change. For now, you canÂ play Resident Evil 7 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms.
