Oh, the horror
We’re stoked about all of the classic Resident Evil games available on Nintendo Switch. With the addition of remastered graphics and optional updated controls, the gaming experience still feels relevant and fun with modern gaming. Hopefully more titles from the series will release as time goes on. We’ll continue to update this list as they do.
If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend Resident Evil Origins Collection since it provides two games and helps you know where the series began. If you’re already a Resident Evil fan, revisit one of the best games in the series with Resident Evil 4.
