Resident Evil VII Biohazard Cloud Version Announced For Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch owners and Resident Evil fans rejoice, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is coming to the hottest hybrid console in town. Japanese-town that is.

Yes, Capcom has annouced through a trailer, that a “cloud version” of Resident Evil 7, will hit stores in Japan later this week on 24th May.

Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version is only a 45MB download but requires a constant internet connection to play it.

The game will cost 2,000 yen ($18.02, but probably $19.99 in our territory), but that won’t get you the full game.

Instead, 2,000 yen gets you 180 days of playtime, and we assume you’ll have to buy another 180 days once that’s up.

There will be a demo that allow users to try Resident Evil 7 for 15 minutes.

Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version will arrive with the full suite of DLC, including “Banned Footage” Volumes 1 and 2, “End of Zoe,” and “Not a Hero,” all of which are former downloadable upgrades to the main game.

Essentially, gamers can purchase six months of access to the complete experience, with no need to download it in full, conserving the Switch’s limited storage space.

We don’t have any word of an English release yet, but we’ll keep you guys updated.


The Resident Evil VII Biohazard Cloud Version is definitely an interesting experiment that could pave the way for other games to become playable on Nintendo Switch through streaming.


And by the way guys, this isn’t a novel idea for the Japanese market.

Square Enix’s Dragon Quest X MMO has a cloud streaming version for 3DS and smartphones, and there are also cloud-powered mobile versions of games like Final Fantasy XIII.

Sega’s Phantasy Star Online 2 for Switch works the same way.

Now all we have to do, is wait and see how well it runs on the Switch.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Resident Evil 7 ha vendido más de 5 millones de copias y supera a Residen Evil 2

Capcom’s most recent main entry in its long-running survival horror zombie-slaying series was first released in January of 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

It returned to the series’ horror roots after a number of games in the action genre.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard tells the story of Ethan Winters, a systems engineer whose wife has been missing for several years.

His search for her leads to a southern plantation home in Louisiana, where he eventually encounters a disturbed family of zombie-like psychopaths known as the Bakers, with even more disturbing horrors existing within the bowels of the house.

Last Call! Nintendo has ceased production of the SNES and NES classic consoles

Do you already have yours? Clock’s ticking…

Published

SNES and NES Classic

The end is near! Yes. Nintendo has ceased production for hard to get consoles SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) and NES (Nintendo Entertainment System).

During an interview with THR (The Hollywood Reporter), Nintendo of America President, president Reggie Fils-Aime, made it official. He mentioned that the gaming company will no longer produce the coveted tiny consoles.

There’s no ability for add-on content with our classic consoles, so when you purchase the console it’s coming with that set roster of content. We worked very hard, both for the NES Classic and the SNES Classic. Only to have the best games that defined that generation. We’ve said that the current systems are the extent of our classic program. We’ve also been clear. At least from an Americas perspective, these products are going to be available through the holiday season and once they sell out, they’re gone.”, stated Fils-Aime..

He then continued saying the following:

 “The way that consumers will be able to continue participating with our classic content is going to be through Nintendo Switch Online. And we just released three new games (Ninja Gaiden, Wario’s Woods and Adventures of Lolo) from the NES generation onto that platform. We look at that as the main way that consumers will be able to experience that legacy content”, said Fils-Aime in the interview.


Since their announcement, both small items have been the a must-have item. Not just for for gamers but also for nostalgic consumers. In a past report we did a little research on how of an uphill  battle was to get the NES Classic console on it’s release day two years ago.

After the outpouring of fans and collectors alike, Nintendo gave in to their demands. That is when they decided to produce more NES Classic console. Before the release of the SNES Classic, Nintendo made one thing clear. One thing was clear with the SNES Classic.  Once the SNES Classic hit the shelves on September of last year, they would produce a large amount of it. That way everyone would be able to get their hands on one.

Nier: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition

El vidoejuego Nier: Automata: Game of the YoRHa Edition llegará a PC y PS4. La noticia viene por parte el portal ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board). Esto solo revelaron que el juego ya cuenta con una clasificación  y el porqué de ella. Los detalles de esta versión son escasos. Pero lo que los seguidores del juego están más atentos es en la correción de algunos problemas en PC.

Sinopsis:

“El futuro lejano.

Invasores de otro mundo atacan sin previo aviso, desatando un nuevo tipo de amenaza: las armas conocidas como “formas de vida de máquinas”. Ante esta amenaza insuperable, la humanidad es expulsada de la Tierra y se refugia en la Luna.

El Consejo de la Humanidad organiza una resistencia de los soldados androides en un esfuerzo por recuperar su planeta. Para romper el punto muerto, la Resistencia despliega una nueva unidad de infantería Android: YoRHa.

En el desierto abandonado más abajo, la guerra entre las máquinas y los androides continúa. Una guerra que pronto revelará la verdad olvidada de este mundo”.

Este juego es considerado como uno de los mejores que surgió en el 2017. Muchas quejas se han dado a conocer sobre éste en PC, mencionando que dicho puerto es un ‘desastre’. En adición, no ha recibido un solo parche en la PC, aparte de una actualización para DLC que expertos indican no resolvió nada. Square Enix no ha logrado hasta ahora, desarrollar un mod que aborda muchos de los problemas del juego.

El año pasado, en junio y julio, Nvidia y AMD presentaron algunos controladores destinados a solucionar un problema. Esa fue la medida de la compatibilidad con PC. Al mismo tiempo, Square Enix dijo que estaba trabajando para solucionar más problemas con la versión Steam del juego. Se dice que esto nunca transcurrió.

El videojuego debutó  el 23 de febrero de 2017.

Boom! Command and Conquer remastered is coming!

The Command & Conquer series is getting a 4k treatment.

Command and Conquer

Vintage gamers, rejoice! Electronic Arts announced that they will be remastering the classic real-time strategy game series, Command and Conquer (C&C).

The game is getting a modern treatment for new platforms. EA confirmed Wednesday that it plans to remaster the original C&C and its prequel/sequel, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, to “4K glory” with the help of Petroglyph Games.

Petroglyph is the developer behind strategy games like Grey Goo, Star Wars: Empire at War and Guardians of Graxia.

“Today, I’m thrilled to tell you we are going to the beginning. We have decided to remaster Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn. And while this is incredibly exciting on its own, we’re also aware of how passionate the community is about the Red Alert universe. So, we will also remaster the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert™”, mentioned Jim Vessella trough the EA website.

The classic strategy game also featured some exciting expansion packs. And according to the report they will too get a remastered edition.

But what about the classic expansion packs you may ask – Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath? Well, C&C and Red Alert wouldn’t be the same without them, so all three expansion packs will be bundled with the base games into one remastered collection – without microtransactions”, Vessella concluded.

Although these are awesome news, we are still long ways away from getting a release date. Vessella concluded stating that the game has not yet started development.

The Command & Conquer series kicked off in 1995 with Westwood Studios’ original real-time strategy game. EA will release a new take on the franchise, Command & Conquer: Rivals, for Android and iOS this December.
