Capcom would be tricky once again, but they might make a Resident Evil 3 Remake Nintendo Switch port.
Daniel Ahmad, a senior analyst at Niko Partners, wrote on Twitter that at the moment, Capcom has no plans to make a native version of Resident Evil 3 Remake Nintendo Switch port. (By native, he means the game would run locally.) Instead, they are considering a cloud version for Jill Valentine’s escape from Raccoon City.
If you think of the past, you are correct: previously, Capcom has made a cloud version for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, but don’t bother looking for it on the eShop, as this version is only available in Japan. It’s effectively the PC version with higher settings, eliminating the technical limitations of the Nintendo Switch. (Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey has also done a similar cloud version in October 2018.)
Ahmad brought this subject up because datamining the demo of Resident Evil 3 Remake had its source code hint at the Nintendo Switch version. The Autosave function mentions the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, the PC, and the Switch.
Speaking of the remake, let’s add the original Resident Evil 3: Nemesis into the mix – if you don’t like the new look of Jill Valentine, you can use a mod to give her the old face (and clothing) back. You have to install a mod manager, then get the mod here. Then, copy the RE3 Demo Julia Voth RE3 mod rar file to the modmanager\Games\RE3R\Mods folder, activate the mod, and start the game. With it, Sasha Zotova’s face will be replaced by Julia Voth’s. You can see a few images and a video of the result below. Keep in mind that the mod manager is only good for the demo at the moment, but the full version of the game will see an update for it. The mod is for PC only.
Resident Evil 3 Remake, plus its multiplayer Resident Evil Resistance will launch on April 3 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
