    They are probably thinking about it, as we type.

    I'm actually fine with this. I just hope, delays don't become a trend.

    Already played it 900 years ago when it first released on the 3ds and I'm not so sure I want to play the follow up.

    I would be very interested in the Revelations 2 version on the Switch not so much the 1st because I did play that to death on the wiiu and I don't see any changes between the two. Tbh I think Capcom are playing it very safe on the Switch, it looks like they will release the two on the Nintendo Switch, probably see of things turn out and then maybe a better Resi game coming up in the future.

    Again? The gaming industry is becoming like Hollywood. Rereleases and remakes. Great game. But let it live in its original form. It’s the way it was meant to be.

    Capcom has Revelations for the Switch that we're yet to see.

    .... I hope they're not surprised if it doesn't sell as many copies as they're hoping. This is pathetic.

    I cant stand Revelations, the worse Resident Evil games ever.

    Why on earth would crapcom re release it again.

    I dont get why the switch version takes longer, maybe they have to compress it more so they can reduce the file size and cart costs.

    probably one of the best games tho to hit the switch..... shame theres no RE7.

    Don't think so, considering most of it was already put in a 3DS cart, and who would complain for washed out textures if that were the case, when the game itself is just... meeeh.
    They might be trolling and moving it away from the release of anything else on the Switch (not that much of a challenge anyway), because you know this thing is so much a bland re-re-re-release of a bland game that they might be scared even Mario Rabbids could take away the ten or twenty potential sales for the game.

    With all the time spent porting every single Resident Evil game to everything with a screen and a few toasters, could have been spent making a new Mega Man game!
    Or at least translating Monster Hunter XX :glare:

    Capcom is being really stubborn on releasing good, new games for the Switch that PS4/XO have.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I don't understand why some people here complaint about Revelations ? I really enjoyed 2 sequels on PS3. Nice to see this port to Switch but why re-release things over to Switch ? Why can't they just make a brand new AAA games to Switch ? I am getting doubt every minutes because we don't have Switch and we won't buy it until we see more new AAA games to Switch first. Sighing.

    I have played re Rev 1 and 2 on the 360, as well the first one on the 3ds, one of the greatest games of the resident evil franchise imo, I might get rerev2 just for the portability.
    But eww, 60 fps, it ruins the cinematic experience /s
    Apparently Nintendo pass the test for capcom with street fighter, it might be the reason of the delay of both games

    I expect the delay is result of low budget development. I don't mind that games are ported but Capcom sees it as easy money without much effort. Seeing that the port isn't even "remaster quality", I expect a small team is working on this and couldn't work on the switch along with the other consoles.
    Besides, resident evil on the Nvidia shield could hardly handle a playable frame rate (at times) so I bet some optimization is being put in.

    "for Nintendo Switch in late 2017! At retail across North America you will find these two games as a combo pack dubbed Resident Evil Revelations Collection, which includes one cartridge with Revelations as well as a digital download voucher for Revelations 2 for $39.99. Both games will be available as individual digital downloads at $19.99 each."

    that sucks i expected to have both on cartrige and not one download code ...

    srs i hate freaking full games in download vouchers.

    Your mom's basement.
    Capcom doesn't know how to make new games!
