Capcom have announced Resident Evil 7, a special cloud stream version for the Nintendo Switch for launch this month (currently Japan only).
While the demo is timed for 15mins, and that alone is enough to scare some people. 180 day of play of the full version will cost right now around £13 (2000 yen). While it’s an interesting concept for Nintendo to try out, it doesn’t come close to the benefit that PS Plus and Xbox live’s monthly game access packages give you.
This announcement comes hot off the heals of Nintendo announcing they will not be bringing the virtual console to Switch (Booooo!!!!), which can only mean they have found a better way to market the classics using the classic mini series at retail.
Here’s hoping for a US/Europe port and an option to buy outright.
