How Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 Will Run on Nintendo Switch

Looks Like RER on Switch Will Have More Features

The remasters for Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 are coming to the Nintendo Switch, and some details have emerged from collective hands-on impressions.

Thanks to discoveries from the Tokyo Game Show a few months back, we know that Resident Evil Revelations will function for the Switch as it does on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That means HD 60 frames per second support. Furthermore, it’s getting special Joy-Con features like motion control and HD Rumble. Because of Nintendo’s trademarked features, players should experience more precise vibrations.

How it works: Hold the ZL button to aim with the right Joy-Con’s motion, then simulate reloads by using the left Joy-Con to insert a magazine. Additionally, you can simulate a knife attack with swipes. Naturally, this doesn’t work with the Pro controller.

According to Nintendo Everything, the first Resident Evil Revelations will handle 1080p 60 fps when docked. Undocked, it will maintain fps and run at 720p.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will also run at 1080. As of yet, however, 60 frames per second has not been confirmed. The graphics should be close to the PS4 version. Since this is a remaster, this should come as no surprise. The other perk of it being a remaster is that it comes with all the original DLC. When we get right down to it, Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 should run and function similarly. But only the latter will include the share play feature.

In related news, the Switch version of the game will have exclusive mini-games that should play nicely in handheld mode. Will you be picking up Resident Evil Revelations for the Nintendo Switch? Comment down below.
