Capcom has staple-gunned a May 21 release date to the Nintendo Switch versions of Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil HD Remaster, and Resident Evil 4.

All three survival horror games will be available on the Nintendo eShop, with pre-orders opening on February 28. There's no pricing details yet, and it's unknown if the games are getting a physical release.

Resident Evil 0 and the remake were originally released as Nintendo GameCube exclusives back in 2002. At this point, Capcom and Ninty were best pals, having agreed the year before to release all the mainline Resi titles only for the 'Cube – and pissing lots of PlayStation gamers off in the process.

Eventually, Resi 0 and Resi remake were remastered for PS4 and Xbox One in 2016 and 2015, respectively, and look fantastic thanks to the pre-rendered backgrounds and spruced up character models.

Meanwhile, Resi 4 arrived on the scene back in 2005 on GameCube and PS2, and was later ported to pretty much every system known to mankind. It reinvigorated the series, binning the pre-rendered backdrops and shuffling zombies in favour of an over-the-shoulder view with more emphasis on action.

If you're a fan of Resi or just curious about checking the series out, then any one of these games would be a great start. Well, okay; Remake is the best, and don't let anyone tell you any different, got it?
