Games being the key word.

Capcom is bringing two more titles from their back catalogue to Switch, and one will make its Nintendo platform debut.

The two Resident Evil Revelations games will both be making their way to Switch this fall. North America will receive a physical release with Revelations 1 on a card and a download code for 2 for US$39.99, or they can be purchased separately on the eShop for $19.99 each. In Europe, the games will be digital only. Items that were previously sold as downloadable content will be unlockable in-game for the Switch versions.

Resident Evil Revelations originally debuted on the 3DS in 2012, and received a port to Wii U in May 2014. This is the first appearance for Resident Evil Revelations 2 on a Nintendo system, which was originally released episodically in 2015.

Something something both games should be on a single card something

Since Capcom is going the half-card half-code solution (probably to cut cost), I would have preferred Revelations 2 being on the card and Revelations 1 being a digital code since Revelations 2 has a larger file size. I'm trying to get through another generation without needing an SD card.

I and very happy to get Resident Evil Revelations 2 for the Switch. I enjoyed the first on the Wii U and was bummed it never came to Wii U. I almost bought it for my PS3. I actually did buy it as a gift for my cousin on the PS4, hoping that we could experience it in Coop mode, but he never wanted to play it!

Finally it will be mine

The original Revelaitons is probably my favorite game in the series, and this seems like a good excuse to replay it and then go to the sequel that I never got around to.

If I had a Switch, or any intention of buying one, this would be my feeling as well. Kind of shitty to only go halfway when offering a physical option - I mean, who does that really appeal to? It's like offering the worst of both worlds by not using the same medium for both games.

Checking around I see Revelations 2 was about 6 gigs in terms of file size. So a pretty big chunk of change for the Switch's paltry storage space.

Way to go Capcom.
