Several have confirmed today that Resident Evil 4 on Nintendo Switch lacks motion controls. This new release of the game seems to be a straight port of the HD update released last year on PS4 and Xbox One, so no additional feature is present.

This feels like a missed opportunity, considering the Joy-Con would have been perfect to implement motion controls in a way that they would have been enjoyable. They could still be patched in after release, but as of now, traditional control schemes are the only ones available.

On a related note, some new footage has also emerged online. You can check it out below.

Resident Evil 4 launches later today on Nintendo Switch in all regions.
