Resident Evil 5 and 6 Switch releases confirmed

Two more Resident Evil games are coming to Switch.

Two more Resident Evil games are coming to Switch, Capcom announced during Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct.

It’s not a huge surprise, really — of late, Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4 have found their way to Nintendo’s home-hybrid console. What’s two more games?

“While the Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained, a more dangerous threat has emerged. Somewhere in Africa, innocent villagers are transforming into aggressive and disturbing creatures,” Nintendo said of Resident Evil 5. “Featuring online and couch co-op, players can experience this Resident Evil classic as either Chris Redfield or his partner, Sheva Alomar, as the duo work together to investigate and stop those responsible for the viral outbreak.”

“Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 delivers an epic and dramatic horror experience,” Nintendo continued. “Resident Evil favourites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Ada Wong are joined by series newcomers to face a global level threat: the highly virulent C-virus.”

Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 are both coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019.
