Capcom is bringing over several new Resident Evil games to the Nintendo Switch and if you’re wondering what you should know before you jump in for the first time, don’t worry –we have you covered.
Here are 5 things that you should know before jumping into the Resident Evil series for the first time.
Don’t Start With the Side Games
If you’re on the Switch, you won’t have access to all the games in the Resident Evil series but you’ll have enough. There’s both Revelations games, Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil, and Resident Evil 4.
While Revelations 1 and 2 are the most modern entries in the series on the Switch, they’re not the best ones to start with simply because the stories in those games aren’t all that great, and newcomers likely won’t enjoy it without having played the previous ones.
They’re also very focused on the action elements of the later Resi games, and not really a good indicator of what the series is all about.
That’s not to say they’re bad, of course, and they’re still worth playing later on down the line; just don’t start with them.
