Resident Evil 4 Remake on Switch would be a big deal as it's one of the most anticipated games of 2023. With prior titles on the system, it would only make sense for Resident Evil 4 Remake to follow the same trajectory. However, has Capcom confirmed any kind of port or streaming option for Resident Evil 4 Remake on Switch? We have all the details.

Capcom has been one of the most supportive third-party studios for Nintendo with big hits like Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village on the system. With that in mind, it is puzzling to know that there are currently no plans for Resident Evil 4 Remake on Switch.

While the Nintendo Switch does have technical limits, fans of the hybrid system have been able to play all PS4 generation entries, including Resident Evil Village and RE2 Remake, through the cloud. Perhaps a few months down the line, we'll get a port of Resident Evil 4 Remake on Switch, but nothing has been confirmed by Capcom just yet.

  • Fans think Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Gwendoline Christie should be a live-action Lady Dimitrescu. Do you agree?

This may be disingenuous to some, but you can always play the original Resident Evil 4 on Switch. It's available for the system at a discounted price of $19.99. Despite its dated tank controls and frequent use of quick-time events, it's still a great game through and through.

If you're looking for a scary time, you may enjoy Alien: Isolation on the Nintendo Switch. You'll have to sneak past the titular beast and escape death in intense stealth sections. It's been praised across the board by fans and critics alike. Alien: Isolation is a hefty 17.8 GB so you may need extra storage for this game. 

On the other hand, those who desire to wield a gun or melee weapon should check out Dying LightIt's an impressive native port that has you parkouring around the city and defeating zombies in creative ways. This open-world game gives you more freedom than the Resident Evil series and lets you take on quests at your own pace. Just don't go outside during the night; the zombies in the game get even tougher.
