It goes without saying that the “#Resident Evil” series has amassed quite the popularity in recent months, thanks to the highly-rated “Resident Evil 7.” But Capcom’s latest horror offering isn’t the only one that’s worth your time and money – “Revelations” and its sequel are underrated horror gems – both a perfect fit for the #Nintendo Switch.

Resident Evil: Revelations” comes out on August 29 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, then a Switch release of both “Revelations 1”and “Revelations 2” comes out late 2017, Capcom confirmed in a press release. The publisher didn’t announce platform-specific details for Nintendo’s brand-new console, but more information should be announced soon.

‘Revelations’ for PS4, XB1

As previously announced, the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be priced at $20, both digitally and at retail, and the updated port comes with all previously released DLC as unlockable rewards. According to Capcom, the ported versions will have “a smoother 1920x1080 resolution, an improved framerate, increased environmental detail and refined creature movement.”

Originally released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, “Resident Evil: Revelations” features Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate the reportedly abandoned Queen Zenobia cruise ship. The sequel, which was released episodically throughout 2015, stars Claire Redfield and Barry Burton. The game was eventually released for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and even the Wii U.

‘RE Revelations 1 & 2’ for Switch

Following Capcom’s announcement that it was “starting to prepare” more Switch games, the company took fans by surprise by revealing a "Resident Evil Revelations Collection" will see a release on Nintendo’s portable console.

As part of the company's earnings report last week, the publisher said "Ultra Street Fighter II" for Switch was a "smash hit." The company didn't say what its sales projections for the game were, but whatever the case, it looks like you can expect more Switch titles from Capcom in the future.

It won’t be long before we’ll see "RE: Revelations" and its sequel, "RE: Revelations 2," be made available in a combo pack at retail. Nintendo Insider reports that a download voucher for the sequel ($40) will be offered to purchasers, with both games to be made available separately on the Nintendo eShop ($20).

Capcom has been one of the few big third-party supporters of Nintendo products, particularly on 3DS with the “#Monster Hunter” series. It has one other Switch title planned in the form of “Monster Hunter XX,” while “Monster Hunter: World” is scheduled for Xbox One and PS4 on 2018.
