Resident Evil Revelations Collection will be sold in stores for Switch, individual games on the eShop

Posted on August 1, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Earlier today, Capcom announced that both Resident Evil Revelations games are coming to Switch. They’re on track for launch later this year. The initial announcement didn’t have much in the way of details, but a little bit of extra information was published on Capcom’s official blog.

The Resident Evil Revelations titles will be sold as a combo pack known as the Resident Evil Revelations Collection. This will be sold in stores across North America as well as on the eShop. The retail version will come with one cartridge containing Revelations and a digital download voucher for Revelations 2.

You’ll be able to purchase the Resident Evil Revelations Collection in stores for $40. Both games will also be sold individually on the eShop for $20.

    So Revelations 2, a game that was very conspicuously published on every platform except Wii U, gets on Switch but not in physical form? Just what does the development team of Revelations 2 have against Nintendo anyway?

      Likely didnt want to fork out for the extra memory or get a second card

  • I probably peached about it enough today but one more time for the road. When I buy a physical version of the game, I expect the whole content or most of it to be on the cartridge. Unfortunately, Capcom decided to include the first one (presumably the smaller size one) while the second is a DL code… This is still awesome news though (announcement of the games I mean).

      If anything, it ought to be the other way around. If they’re just trying to avoid the higher cartridge costs, that would be one thing. But this still comes off as a little bitter.

    Hands down revelations 1 best RE this gen due to ONLY its raid mode. Have the PC version and clocked in 400 hrs. Yes…. Most played game. Hopefully the new ghost ship will be in this version

    Which other game had this same BS?

      Not since early ps3/360

    It’s gonna be sold, and I’m gonna buy it, even though the voucher thing is pretty underwhelming.

    Seems like it should have been RE6 instead of Revelations. RE6 never came to any Nintendo platform while Revelations released as a 3DS title selling nearly 900k copies and it sold over 200k units on the WiiU. That’s a lot of Nintendo fans who have already experienced that game and here we are 5 years later being asked to buy it again. Seems like an odd choice. Still, this is great for fans of the series and great for those who have been waiting for Capcom to show additional support for Switch.

    On a personal note, this dashes any hopes I had that ZombiU would make a return to Nintendo. No way Ubisoft resurrects that series to compete with Resident Evil.

      It’s fine with ZombiU, like the Wii U version is the best version by far

      Nintendo platforms never got the second game so this is a good first step
