Could the reboot series be coming to Switch via streaming?
Today Nintendo decided to drop a Direct Mini with no announcement or fanfare, something that’s become increasingly common it seems, which had a lot of surprising announcements. Maybe the biggest surprise was having streaming cloud version of two major titles, with Control being available today and Hitman 3 coming at some point in the future. Well, it seems people have been doing some digging and more could be coming.
As found by the resourceful folks at the ResetERA gaming forum, when datamining the website for the cloud version of Control, you can find links and references to a cloud version for Resident Evil 3, the remake of the classic title that was released earlier this year, you can even see the cover that was discovered below. If you aren’t aware, Nintendo tried the cloud streaming thing in Japan with a few titles, including Resident Evil 7, as what seems to have been an experiment for this. While only RE3 was discovered, most likely it would also mean that 7 and the remake of Resident Evil 2 would also be good candidates to see cloud releases.
Like all things datamining, you have to take it with a grain of salt, but as of now there’s no reason to expect this is a fake and it definitely seems to be more than just a case of leftover code or something of that nature. Only time will tell, but don’t be too surprised to see the classic survival horror series get some cloud versions for Nintendo’s portable soon.
