We heard a rumor from across the ocean not too long ago that Resident Evil 3 might see a quasi-release on the Nintendo Switch.
This release would have involved a cloud streaming service.
While we still don’t have a confirmation, data miners over at Resetera have done some digging and found a title screen, seemingly for Resident Evil 3: Cloud Edition.
Could Resident Evil 3 be going handheld via the cloud?
This image was found by Resetera user Jqui and was supposedly buried in the website used by the company behind the Switch’s cloud capabilities for Control, Ubitus GameCloud.
With this possibility out there, that would open the door for many of the other modern Resident Evil titles to be launched in the platform. Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 could see launches through this same service.
Until we know the official facts, however, take all rumors with a grain of salt. It’s possible that this was canned previous or might have just been a mockup for potential uses. As always, we’ll keep an eye out for further information until then.
