Capcom has confirmed that a port of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be added to the Nintendo Switch, the port has been titled the "Cloud Version" and has already got a listing on the Japanese version of the eShop.

According to Nintendo Everything, Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version will be launching in quite a unique way for the Nintendo Switch. Unlike like other Nintendo Switch games, Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version will only be a 45MB download, with the rest of the required data being streamed off Nintendo's cloud.

Japanese players will be able to pick up the Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version and all of its DLC's for free, a 15 minute free trial is provided before players are required to purchase a further 180 days for 2,000 yen. Unfortunately, there has been no mention of the title coming to western markets, we can expect and hope that in the coming days Capcom makes an announcement and gifts western markets with a great portable horror experience.
