Resident Evil 7 Not Coming to Nintendo Switch

by William Schwartz


While PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC owners will be getting their hands on Resident Evil 7 very soon, those hoping that the horror franchise will arrive on the Nintendo Switch may be disappointed by recent comments by developers.

Accordingto Masachika Kawata (Producer) & Koshi Nakanishi (Director), Capcom has no plans to bring Resident Evil 7 to the Nintendo Switch.  In a recent interview, Kawata revealed that “we have no plans at the moment regarding Resident Evil on Switch,”  despite the RE7 Producer personally thinking “it’s a very unique piece of hardware.”

It could very well be a case of waiting to see how things go for Nintendo’s console, but it doesn’t sound like the highly anticipated title has a port in the works at this time.

Resident Evil 7 isn’t the first big third party AAA title to thumb its nose at Nintendo’s Switch.  Respawn Entertainment recently said that its shooter, Titanfall 2, wouldn’t even fit on the console.

Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchford also defused the possibility of seeing Borderlands 3 on the console.  Even Bioware is looking to take a wait and see approach with brining their highly anticipated Mass Effect Andromeda to the Switch.

It’s not all doom and gloom for the Nintendo Switch and third party titles.  There are currently over 80 games in development on the console.  We’ve already seen some third party committment for the console with ports of Skyrim, Minecraft, Skylanders, Just Dance, and many others are slated to arrive this year and beyond.

Resident Evil 7 is due out on January 24th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
