The Nintendo Direct showcase on September 13 revealed a huge batch of new titles arriving to the Switch in the next year, and among those titles are Cloud versions of Resident Evil: Village, Resident Evil: Biohazard, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3. In an interesting move to port these games over to the Switch without suffering from its hardware limits, the games will be available to play through streaming technology, and will require a constant internet connection. To pop things off, Nintendo is offering a free demo for Resident Evil: Village immediately after the Direct concludes and, if you’re wondering how to get your hands on it, continue reading to learn how to play the Resident Evil Village Cloud demo on Switch.
How to Play Resident Evil Village Cloud on Switch
Resident Evil: Village for Switch will be released on October 28, but a free demo is available to play on the Nintendo eShop. To try it out, launch your Switch and enter the eShop, where you’ll see a list of Featured and Coming Soon titles to browse. Assuming the Nintendo Direct has concluded by the time you’re reading this, Resident Evil: Village Cloud version will be available to download. Use the eShop’s search feature if you don’t see it right away.
As a reminder, a constant internet connection is required to play the game, as you’ll actually be using game streaming technology to play rather than downloading and installing the full game.
Nintendo plans to make previous Resident Evil titles available as Cloud versions by the end of the year as well, so if you’re a Switch owner and a fan of this classic horror franchise, you’re about to have a full plate.
