Capcom is apparently already looking into “other titles” that will suit this format.
One question that’s usually brought up every time a new triple-A title is announced is whether it could come to the Nintendo Switch or not. While that question is still being asked, Capcom has already released Resident Evil 7: biohazard in Japan as a cloud-based streaming title for the Switch.
North America and Europe may not get their hands on it any time soon, but that hasn’t stopped Capcom from considering more such games for the platform. A company spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal that it will look into metrics for Resident Evil 7. After that, it will make announcements for other such cloud titles on the Switch.
Sources speaking to the publication however revealed that Capcom is presently looking into “other titles” that could work as streaming games. Considering Resident Evil 7 on the Switch costs $18 for 180 days of playtime, it wouldn’t be strange for the company to look at similar games that could fit that duration.
Recently, Ubisoft also went for something similar to what Capcom did, and announced a streaming launch for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the Switch, exclusive to Japan. Read more on that through here.
