RESIDENT EVII. biohazard cloud version releasing this week in Japan

RESIDENT EVII. biohazard is the latest mainline entry in the Resident Evil series, released last year. And it turns out it’s now headed to the Nintendo Switch, where it will be known as RESIDENT EVII. biohazard cloud version. As the name indicates, this version of the game doesn’t run natively on the Nintendo Switch, but instead relies on the cloud.

Naturally, that means that an internet connection is required in order to play at all times. Too bad for those who wanted to play it on the go, though one might argue the best way to play this game is alone at night, at home (where an internet connection is readily available).

And of course, you will have to pay a “subscription” to play: Capcom only offers a 180 days ticket, that costs 2 000 Yen. During that time, you can play the game as many times as you want, for as long as you want, without any restrictions. That includes all the DLC originally released for the game, included in the subscription (no additional fee to access it).

In order to play RESIDENT EVII. biohazard cloud version in the best conditions (ie: without too much lag), Capcom recommend you use either 802.11ac 5Ghz Wifi, or use an ethernet adapter with your Nintendo Switch.

To play RESIDENT EVII. biohazard cloud version, you need to download the free client from the Nintendo eShop, starting this Friday (May 25th).

Here’s the debut trailer for the game:
