The acclaimed survival horror game will be coming to the new and hugely popular Nintendo hybrid console later this year, publishers at Capcom have revealed.

The game, which was originally released for the Nintendo DS console in 2012, and later came to Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 systems in 2013.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles also got a HD upgrade of the game earlier this year, slightly ahead of the re-release for the Switch.

However, unlike the PS4 and Xbox One ports, Switch users will be able to get the game's follow-up, 'Resident Evil: Revelations 2' - which was released for major consoles in 2015 - bundled in with the main game, making it the first time the sequel has ever been released on a Nintendo console.

Only the first game will be playable via game card, however, as the box will include a download code for the sequel, which players can then use to download the follow-up to the Switch storage.

The physical release retails for $40 for both games, but players can also purchase each title individually from the Nintendo Eshop for $20.

The confirmed release date comes just days after Capcom also revealed the latest instalment in the franchise, 'Resident Evil 7', will be getting a definitive Gold Edition release this December.

Players will be able to get their hands on the pack - which includes the base game along with its three DLC expansions: Banned Footage Vol. 1, Banned Footage Vol. 2, and the new End of Zoe - for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC systems on December 12.
