Resident Evil 6 and Resident Evil 5 Coming to Nintendo Switch This October

by Liana Ruppert

The Nintendo Switch continues to expand its third-party library at impressive rates and that includes much more than simple family-friendly titles. The hybrid console continues to add a wide variety of games to choose from, including its ever-expanding repatoire of horror adventures to dive right into. For Resident Evil fans, that includes both Resident 6 and Resident Evil 5 on Nintendo Switch this 

Both titles felt different than previous entries into the franchise, even more so with Resident Evil 5. Resident Evil 5 offered an incredible co-op experience set in Africa which offered a plethora of different weapon choices, new enemies, and an intense narrative placed 5 years after the events in Resident Evil 4 centering on Chris Redfield. 

Resident Evil 6 saw the return of Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield in addition to a few new faces to squad up against a new global bioterrorist threat that bounced between North America, Edonia, and Lanshiang, China. The fight against the highly virulent C-Virus was an intense one, though was met with a mixed reception from long-time Resident Evil fans despite its familiar dark tone. 

Both titles will be making their way over onto the Nintendo Switch on October 29th. Are you ready ?
