Resident Evil

Hello, my Chocobos and Cactuars! This week on NEP, we’ve got the simultaneous worst and best episode yet! We’ve got Jared of Avalanche Reviews guesting in, but Galen’s mic crapped out once or twice, so his commentary is a little light in a few spots.

But Jared is here to get super nerdy with us about upscaling output video on retro consoles, as all three of us bond over Resident Evil and the best boys of YouTube. In particular, Jared talks about getting the best picture possible out of the SNES, N64 and GCN consoles; the Framemeister; and technical nonsense of video and retro graphics explained in easy-to-understand detail.

Capcom dated three classic Resident Evil games for Switch earlier today. We also received confirmation that two of those titles, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 1, will be bundled together as a physical option. However, not everything is as it seems.

Similar to North America, Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 1 will be getting the Resident Evil Origins Collection bundle in Japan. There is one downside though: Resident Evil 1 will be offered as a download code. That means Resident Evil 0 will be on cartridge, but not the other game.

We also have an update on Resident Evil 4 as Capcom says it will be download-only in Japan. That means, as of now, there will not be any region with access to a physical version of that title on Switch.


Capcom has dated a trio of Resident Evil classics for Switch. Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4 are all launching on May 21. Pre-orders will go live on the eShop starting February 28.

In North America, Capcom will offer a Resident Evil Origins Collection bundle at retail that features Resident Evil 0 and 1. They will be separate digital downloads in Europe.


Hey there, my mischievous koopalings!

This week on NEP, we’re doing a special feature on just how much we adore Reggie Fils-Aimé: our favorite moments, how he helped define a new era of Nintendo and the games industry, and how he interacted with the fans on an intimate level. Plus, who is Doug Bowser and why are we looking forward to him? Then we go deep, DEEP into the Xbox Game Pass for Switch rumors by having a great discussion on the industry moving forward, how Microsoft is trying to have it evolve with this new tier of streaming and distribution, and the infrastructure they depend on. Plus, so much more! We hope you enjoy our insight.

A big thank you to all of our listeners and to those who share the podcast and contribute to NEP’s continued growth! Check below for more details and timestamps.

A few months ago, Capcom announced that it will be bringing a few classic Resident Evil games to Switch. Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 are all planned for this year.

We haven’t heard anything since the initial announcement in October, but fans are due for an update soon. Capcom’s Resident Evil community manager says there will be “more details about the Switch ports at the end of Feb”. There’s just a few days left in the month, so we should be getting an update by next Thursday at the latest.


Deadline, which has accurately reported in happenings within the television and movie industry, is claiming that Netflix is working on a scripted TV series for Resident Evil. German production and distribution company Constantin Film, which is behind the Resident Evil movies, has been named as the studio involved. Netflix is apparently looking for a showrunner at the moment.

Deadline adds that “the plan is for the series to expand the Resident Evil universe and deepen the exiting mythology.” It will “keep the basic premise, which also served as a setup for the movie franchise. The drama series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus.” Fans can look forward to “all of Resident Evil’s signature elements, including action sequences and ‘easter eggs.'”
