That's the thing, it wouldn't even be difficult to bring RE7 over. Switch has already gotten ports of several games more demanding than RE7, and there are multiple studios with experience porting PS4/Xbone games to Switch who could do it for them; Panic Button, QLOC, Viruos, Saber...
Well, getting ports more demanding than RE7 doesn't mean it wasn't necessarily a difficult process. Each publisher needs to decide if it's worth it to them on a game to game basis.
However I do agree that RE7 seems like it would be on the easier end of the spectrum when it comes to porting to Switch, because it is already designed to be played with lower fidelity, in VR mode. Much of the work to make everything function seems to already be done.
I guess they're happy just using it to test the streaming service in Japan for some odd reason.
I'm also surprised there's no new Switch specific Monster Hunter announced yet. They seemed to really drop the ball with that one.
Given that the streaming version is only really viable in Japan, it seems a significant missed opportunity not to bring a regular, locally processed port to the entire world.
And yeah, no bespoke Monster Hunter on Switch is a huge fail; even Generations Ultimate, a late 3DS port, sold over a million on Switch with ease. A proper new MH game on Switch would sell like hotcakes, it's absurd they haven't made one.
Their behaviour towards the Switch in general is just bizarre, they're treating it like it's another Wii U in spite of it selling as fast as PS4 worldwide and having already overtaken it in Japan.
