The latest updates for "Resident Evil 7" will feature a possible Nintendo Switch version and new "Resident Evil" games coming soon.

It seems that Capcom will continue to make more innovations for "Resident Evil 7" as game director Koshi Nakanishi and "Resident Evil 2" remake director Yasuhiro Anpu stated that the Japanese video game publisher will be working on "unannounced" games for the "Resident Evil" franchise.

Nakanishi added that while they cannot reveal anything right now, but they are working on something related to "Resident Evil," capitalizing on the success that "Resident Evil 7" achieved from the past month since its release in the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms, PlayStationLifeStyle reported.

The game director explained that he plans to make "Resident Evil" about fear, but one must not forget about the existing characters and stories. By creating a pillar that says ‘Resident Evil is a scary game,’ he and Capcom also managed to make it easier to develop/iterate on other elements of "Resident Evil" franchise. Nakanishi also teased that Anpu has something special to share about soon, probably related to the "Resident Evil 2" remake project.

It was reported before that Capcom had plans for "Resident Evil 8" in motion and are thinking of various plans based on the previous game's mechanics to match, or even surpass it.

Meanwhile, the possibility of having "Resident Evil 7" in the Nintendo Switch version could happen very soon.

Nintendo reach out to various developers during the time the console was being developed for feedback. Capcom pushed Nintendo to increase the Nintendo Switch’s RAM capacity to at least 4GB, which is what the console launched with earlier this month. The latter took the advice from Capcom and increased its RAM capacity.

Capcom had other plans in mind for the Nintendo Switch in terms of the increased RAM, as they are at the midst of developing the RE Engine for "Resident Evil 7" at the time and wanted Nintendo to create a console with the right amount memory to support the system.

Game producer Masachika Kawata stated before that he took an interest in the Nintendo Switch, calling it an interesting piece of hardware and will likely be used for current and future video game titles.

However, Kawata did clarify that Capcom will not have plans in developing "Resident Evil 7" in the Nintendo Switch, at least at the moment, SegmentNext reported.

As of now, gaming fans are still waiting fot the next DLC expansion for "Resident Evil 7," "Not a Hero" that features the return of Chris Redfield in the series.

"Resident Evil 7" is currently available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
