Resident Evil ports more expensive on Switch than other platforms


 

The Nintendo Switch ports of Resident EvilResident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 recently became available for pre-order, and the prices have some prospective zombie (or parasite-controlled villager) slayers scratching their heads.

If you were expecting these ports to be the same price on the Switch as they are on other platforms, then you were wrong. As it turns out, all three retail for $10 more each than their Xbox One or PlayStation 4 counterparts. Likewise, the Resident Evil Origins Collection is $20 more on Switch than it is on the other platforms, according to its GameStop listing.

These Resident Evil ports aren’t the first games that will be more expensive to own on Switch than on other consoles. L.A. Noire also cost $10 more on Switch than its Xbox One and PS4 counterparts. The difference is that L.A. Noire cost more because it was a physical release and Switch cartridges are more expensive to make. The only physical version of the Resident Evil Switch ports will be Resident Evil 0 with the Origins Collection, whereas Resident Evil comes as a redeemable download code.

Playing Resident Evil on the go might be enough motivation for some players to spend an extra $10 (or not having a PS4 or Xbox One), but we also still have a few questions about the ports. Will Resident Evil 4 utilize the Switch’s motion controls? Will Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine get exclusive Mario and Luigi costumes? Will everyone else on the subway train be okay with me screaming out loud when RE4‘s chainsaw enemy first appears?

We’ll have to wait until May 21st, when all three games launch for the Switch, to get our answers.

The Switch versions of the upcoming Resident Evil ports are more expensive than their counterparts on other platforms, and no one knows why.
