30$ for RE4 on the go seems like a no brainer for me. I'd rather play the other two on GC or PS4
Capcom has another thing coming if they think being able to play these on the go is worth an extra $10.
It's that switch cart tax creeping it's way into digital pricing.... except there is no cart for RE4 :O

Regarding Resident Evil 4, the lack of Japanese likely has to do with the fact the Japanese and English builds are different, due to the fact of CERO. Probably to discourage people grabbing the Western releases in Japan. I wanna say the Japanese version will have English, but it'll be censored. Resident Evil 0 and 1 are identical between versions, so it makes sense there.

This is getting ridiculous...especially when the last Capcom ports where priced the same on Switch and other consoles.

Seems like Capcom realized that they messed up not having any new/big RE games for the system they could charge 50/60 bucks for they just increase the prices of their old ports.

Okami HD might have been my last Capcom Switch related purchase - getting too much especially as a EU Switch owner.

Yeah, those prices are bad. Portability of the Switch is great but I ain't spending an extra 50% just because the Switch itself natively supports this option, I already paid the price of that on the console, thank you very much.

If they don’t announce some new features soon, these titles having a $10 increase is pretty ballsy on Capcom. I definitely won’t be bothering.

The only title that can even manage to say it’s worth the extra $10 atm is RE0 since it apparently has all the costumes.

$30?! That's a big F-U. Maybe I could see it for a physical version of RE4, but for eshop versions? Arent the revelations games $20? There is no reason any of these should be more than RER.

Ill probably be a sucker and by REMake though since its been forever since I played it. Still, should have been $20/each or $45 for all three or something.

Ohh man... I was so hyped for resi4 and am still going to buy it but that price is too high.

I will not buy the other two, which I would have for 20...now they get 30 from me instead of 60

These are Capcom games that people expect to hit in 2017 - in the Switch first year on the market.
They release them in its 3rd year and hike up the price while not offering retail versions in big Switch markets.

Ridiculous.
