Resident Evil 5 and 6 - Nintendo Switch

Capcom has confirmed release details for Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on Nintendo Switch.

The steady drip-feed of Resident Evil games to Nintendo Switch continues with the announcement that Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 will be released via the Nintendo eShop on October 29, 2019. Both games also continue Capcom’s over-exuberant pricing policy, coming in at a wince-inducing $29.99 each.

Resident Evil 5 will support co-op gameplay, as per its original release, and the much-maligned Resident Evil 6 will include all existing DLC, plus additional content for its Mercenaries and Agent Hunt modes. Players can get an early look at both games running on Nintendo Switch at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. The Capcom booth is located in Hall A.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
