A rumor surfaced yesterday claiming that the Resident Evil 3 Remake will be releasing on Nintendo Switch, but only as a cloud version.
Analyst Daniel Ahmad revealed on his Twitter profile yesterday that Capcom has apparently no plans for a native version. The publisher, however, is exploring a cloud version.

Couple of years ago, Capcom released Resident Evil VII: Biohazard Cloud Version on Nintendo Switch in Japan. The Cloud Version is basically the PC version streamed to the console, so it can run at very high settings, bypassing the console’s hardware limitations. Sadly, this version of the game never made it outside Japan, so it doesn’t bode too well for a Resident Evil 3 Remake Cloud Version if it indeed gets released.
Last week, Resident Evil 3 Remake received a playable demo, providing players a taste of the experience that will soon be released.
Experience a taste of this stunning re-imagining of Resident Evil 3.
Play a section of the opening of the game, specially tuned for this demo, and get a glimpse of the tragedy that befalls Raccoon City.
As if Jill’s battle was not daunting enough, Capcom also invites players to test their limits with a challenging Mr. Charlie scavenger hunt within the Raccoon City Demo. Twenty Mr. Charlie statues are strewn across Raccoon City; can you seek and destroy all of them with Nemesis hot on your heels? An on-screen counter will help players keep track of their acquired statues and a final count will be displayed upon the demo’s completion.
Resident Evil 3 Remake will be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Nintendo Switch port coming? We’ll keep you posted if any updates about RE3 Remake Switch version surfaces.
