Resident Evil Revelations 1+2 are seeing a physical release on Nintendo Switch in North America and Japan next week. However in Europe, it’s going to be only available digitally.
Capcom Europe has explained they’ve found that a physical release in the region is not viable due to a number of factors. Here’s their full statement on the matter.
Capcom has to take various factors into account when deciding what format to deliver our titles to our fans. These can include but are not limited to overall production costs, manufacturing times, distribution, and first party regulations. In the case of Resident Evil Revelations, we’ve found that unfortunately it’s not viable for Capcom Europe to create a physical version of the title on Nintendo Switch for our territories, however we will be making this available as a digital release.
Not all hope is lost though – European fans can still import the physical release from the US.
