Despite a November 28 release date, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Revelations Collection on the Switch will not be receiving a physical version as originally planned.

The announcement comes a week ahead of the game's release, with Capcom stating that a physical release is "not viable." The game will only be available on the eShop, with the two games in the collection being separate purchases.

The Switch is region-free, so people who want a physical version can import from the U.S., but at a hefty cost. Even with the U.S. cart, Resident Evil Revelations 2 must be downloaded, since it's not on the cart at all.

Resident Evil Revelations Collection is releasing on November 28 and coming with both Revelations games.

Our Take
The cart prices on the Switch are becoming an issue, especially now that publishers are judging the viability of production. Capcom is more risk-averse than most, but this could be the the start of a trend.
