Capcom confirms Resident Evil 7: Biohazard for Nintendo Switch
This past Monday, Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil 7 will be finding its way to Nintendo’s hybrid console, the Switch. However, perhaps due to the scale of the game, it will be available online only, either to rent or to buy. All content from the Xbox One and PS4 versions will be available, as will support for the Switch’s unique joycon controller. Life for Switch owners is about to get a lot scarier. The release date for the Europe and US markets has yet to be announced.
