Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Resident Evil 3 Remake possibly coming to Switch?

The tragedy is it wouldn't even be that hard for them to bring games like RE7 or RE2/3 Remake to Switch; they wouldn't even have to do it themselves, by now there are multiple studios like Panic Button and QLOC who've shown they can bring "impossible" ports to the system. They could just give it to one of those teams to handle.

Maybe the RE Engine is not compatible with the Switch??

Re7 runs at 1080p and 60fps on Xbone S and PS4 slim.

RE2R runs at 1080p and 50-55 FPS on both consoles.

Maybe they will make a cloud version. But Capcom is been giving a lot of excellent games like DMCV, Mh World, RE2R, Re3R and Re7 in the last 3 years.

Given the Switch already runs considerably more demanding games from several current gen engines that were not designed with Switch in mind, it seems most likely they simply didn't put the work in.

May be troublesome, difficult and the result being very inferior to the other consoles, but no doubt it is feasible.

Well, you could say games like Witcher 3 or Doom 2016 were likely quite difficult to bring to Switch and were considerably downgraded, yet plenty of folks didn't seem to mind. I'd happily play a port of RE7 with similar graphics and performance to something like Doom 2016 on Switch.

Yep sales of both indicate that whatever was delivery was satisfactory to quite a good amount of Switch owners, so if they deliver similar level on RE3 it would also do well.

There are some really good 8th Feb games that got ported to the Switch. A few more I'd love to be able to play on the go...but how did those games sell? Hellblade, Doom, Witcher, etc.*


Would it be worthwhile to make an entirely different, downgraded port for the Switch or should Capcom just stick to what the Switch does really well--running great versions of 7th gen games?

*I bought all of these on day one, btw

They clearly sold well enough; if Doom 2016 had performed poorly for instance, no way we'd be getting Doom Eternal. The fact companies keep bringing current gen ports suggests they do well enough to be worth it.

Well it's still a good comparison, neither you can disagree nor disprove the method. It's still better than nothing. Hell even the first choices is better "Youtube view " or Twitter "like"  

Its not proof of anything though.

Look, if you're happy with what they offer, fine. But don't give other people grief for being dissatisfied with 'support' that consists of reselling last gen or even older games at an inflated price with mandatory downloads or no physical copy at all.

It's a proof like it or not. That's a fact . Many marketer has been doing this since long time ago and it's work. I am grieving because it's just weird  seeing people dissatisfied with everything on their life. Maybe they need to learn how to appreciate life and what they got at least once.

It's literally not, you haven't proved a single empirical thing.

Again, you're free to be happy with their offerings. But don't tell others they should be happy with lackluster support and anti-consumer practices.
