There was quite the hullaballoo in the early 2000s, when Capcom seemed to be favouring Nintendo over Sony. The GameCube got a remake of the original Resident Evil, there was the console exclusive prequel Resident Evil Zero, and then Resident Evil 4 was a dramatic shakeup for the series that came as part of the Capcom Five.
You’ll soon be able to re-live those heady, promise-filled days – in the end the Capcom Five couldn’t make the GameCube the success it should have been, and only one of the eventual four games has remained an exclusive – as Capcom have announced that the Resident Evil remake, Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4 will be coming to Switch in 2019.
Capcom is bringing multiple fan favorites to Nintendo Switch! Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will each be launching on Nintendo Switch in 2019! We'll have more info soon!

These will almost certainly be the remastered version of the games that have appeared on other current consoles, but I sincerely hope Capcom will make sure there’s support for GameCube controllers so we can pretend that Nintendo have given us the GameCube Virtual Console we all deserve.
Also, they need to remaster Viewtiful Joe and the rest of the Capcom Five. Yes, even P.N.03…
