Resident Evil Revelations gets Switch release date 2

Resident Evil Revelations might not be a game in the long-running action horror series you might have played despite its critical acclaim. The original game launched on 3DS and boasted an eerie campaign with series staples Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. The sequel, taking an episodic spin, launched on more platforms from the outset. It too was pretty damn good, which makes the pair a return to form for the franchise well before Resident Evil 7 set the bar so high. And if you missed out before, the Switch is giving you a second go.

Capcom announced both Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 for Switch some time ago already, but yesterday the developer/publisher confirmed their release dates for November 28th. They’ll both run at a reduced cost, ringing in at just $20 a piece. There will also be a retail release, but curiously the cartridge will only contain the first Revelations. The sequel will be included as a download code, which suggests that both titles couldn’t fit on one cartridge alone.

The games will both feature their respective graphical upgrades, running at 1080p across the board and higher framerates. This is especially important for the first Revelations, which saw a marked upgraded when it was eventually ported over from 3DS. Both games will include any and all of their additional DLC content as unlockables, as well as four distinctive control schemes to suit your preferred play style from any era of the franchise. There’s a bit of tension lost when playing the first Revelations with a much more mobile control set (and without a touch-screen), but it’s still great regardless.

Revelations is just one of many series heading to the Switch before the close of the year, and that’s not even counting Nintendo’s two big exclusives in Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

  1. Other than Zelda and Mario games is there a reason to get the Switch? From what I can see all the Switch is getting are ports of games that have been out for awhile.

      I should be getting my Switch tomorrow. I didn’t think there was much to get but my list of games for the switch is now sitting at 27.

      I mean, Zelda and the Mario games are a pretty big part of it. But most of the 3rd party games are ports, simply because its quicker to get a port out then an entirely new game, and with the popularity of the Switch, devs need to get something out asap. The new IP’s will come around next year I’m assuming.
