Resident Evil 4 debuted on the GameCube in 2005. It strayed from the survival-horror roots of its predecessors to focus more on action. Resident Evil 4 was a landmark game that established conventions for many third-person shooters going forward, including its use of an over-the-shoulder camera.
Capcom is also working on a remake of Resident Evil 2, which is coming out on January 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. That game is not coming out for Switch.
