    RE5 and RE6 are not great. RE7 on the other hand is great. They already got a cloud version for Japan only. One day we'll get RE7 hopefully outside of Japan

    The point was that although the Gamecube 2 and 3 had very minor changes there's little reason they couldn't receive an overhaul to bring them to the same 0, or 1 standards. Even more modest improvements of upping the resolution and upscaling the textures would likely appeal to some people.

    Not every Switch owner will have played 2 and 3. Not every Switch owner has access to another system with those titles and not every Switch owner uses emulation and piracy to get access to those older titles. So there's a potential market for them. If 0 and 1 sell well, there could be an easy revenue generator in the form of 2 and 3 ports to the Switch for Capcom.

    If they're going to port 2 I would assume it would be the remake that just came out not the original, if the switch could handle it.

    Also there's a rumor they're doing a remake of 3.

    Besides some slow texture pop-in, I didn't have any issues.

    Finally, RE4 on the go. And it's not a shitty Android rip off.

    I would buy Re5 & Re6, would be fun to have local wireless co-op. Something like that could have been done on wii u without split screen, each player would just use their own cause one could use a monitor and the other a gamepad. :)

    As someone who started RE playing 5/6, I love them. I enjoyed 7. I kind of liked 4, never got too far. I thought the RE2 remake was amazing, but the RE1 controls were terrible. I'll give them another shot when this comes out, I guess.

    If resident evil 7 was able to be streamed, shouldn’t it have a way to get a physical copy or digital copy on the switch without downgrading the graphics. Not sure but I think the didn’t need to lower the graphics on the switch version.

    I didn't enjoy playing RE4, the good thing about it was that it controls well. One of the reasons why i don't care for the older games. 5/6 are fun when you play with someone which is the whole point. :P

    Still feel like the only reason resident evil 7 was in first person mode was cause of the vr selling point. It seem odd to suddenly make the game that way all of a sudden. :unsure:

    Finished all except 2 and 3. I will so getting them through downloading. Loved Resident 1 and 5,6 and 7 because of Chris Redfield. My favourite character of all time! Hope Capcom will added more sequels to Switch library later. You never know. Many people asked for Resident Evil 2 remake and Capcom said not this time.. So they are hush and might surprised us soon. They better do! I have PS4 for all of them anyway. Switch will be nice addition library for it as well.

    It can be done, it's just that Capcom might be too lazy to optimize their RE Engine well enough to port it to such a device. They ported Revelations 2, although that was a different engine altogether, but RE7 and REmake 2 can be ported with some sacrifices here and there.

    Differences in graphics and processing stuff is not that big of a deal as it was between porting RE5 to Wii compared to 360/PS3 back in the day.

    Still, let's see.
    I feel as if Capcom is making these ports to see how much potential the Switch has for Resident Evil games.
    If they sell well enough, perhaps Capcom will consider releasing RE7 and RE2 for it. They never say no to a good buck.
