Those hoping to take Resident Evil 2 Remake along with them using a Nintendo Switch version of the game will be sadly disappointed. Capcom isn’t planning a Nintendo Switch version of the game.

GamingBolt spoke to spoke to Capcom brand manager Mike Lunn at E3 2018. Lunn says that,

“I bet it was tossed around at some point in time, because it’s built on the same engine as RE7 engine. It’s built from the ground up, but I don’t think it was ever top running.” He then noted that, “We have toyed with things like the over the shoulder camera, old school corner camera, but again they went with over the shoulder because it felt right for this product…No, not at this time. We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment.”

While the Nintendo Switch is a popular system the console doesn’t compare to the power of the baseline PS4 and Xbox One. Other developers, such as Dead by Daylight developers, have stated that to bring their game to the Nintendo Switch a unique version would have to be designed for that system. A similar statement was made when Capcom was asked about bringing Monster Hunter World but since the game was created for the Xbox One and PS4 first bringing it to the Nintendo Switch would require a whole new version of the game.

Resident Evil 2 Remakelaunches on January 25th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
