Capcom talked about how it had no plans of bringing Resident Evil 2 remake to the Nintendo Switch last year but fans thought that Capcom might change its mind. That is not the case as Capcom’s community manager has confirmed that there is still no plan for a Nintendo Switch port.
Resident Evil 2 has been very successful and has been praised by critics and fans for being a great remake and the demand for a Nintendo Switch port is crazy but I guess the hardware of the Nintendo Switch is a limitation. The game takes advantage of the RE engine and the graphics care according to the modern standards. That might not be possible on the Nintendo Switch.
Capcom has put a lot of effort into making Resident Evil 2 realistic and if it was to release on the Nintendo Switch the graphics would get a massive downgrade. From where I am sitting, I think that Capcom is not willing to compromise on the quality of the game and how it looks. The Nintendo Switch hardware is pretty weak and even though we have seen games like Doom run on the device, Resident Evil 2 might be too graphically intensive for the handheld console.
Capcom’s community manager did not explain why the game was not coming to the Nintendo Switch and just mentioned that there were no plans for a Nintendo Switch port. There is no official comment regarding why that is the case but we might find out soon, so stay tuned for more information regarding the matter.
Capcom is releasing Devil May Cry 5 next month and if you are interested in playing the game then you might want to learn about the events that took place before DMC5.
