‘Resident Evil 5″ and “Resident Evil 6” Receive Switch Release Dates

Capcom finally revealed today when we’ll eventually see Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 come to the Nintendo Switch this year. The company released a new blog post about release details, confirming both games would be coming out on October 29th. What’s more, aside from individual retail versions, Capcom will be releasing a special version called the Triple Pack, which will have games 4-6 included in one Switch cartridge. The regular versions will run you $30 each, but the Triple Pack will run you $60 for all three. That’s an impressive little deal there that wasn’t expected. Here’s more about both games from Capcom.

Highly regarded for its co-op gameplay, Resident Evil 5 puts you in the shoes of two B.S.A.A. operatives: Resident Evil veteran Chris Redfield and newcomer Sheva Alomar. These two highly-trained agents will have their training and skills put to the test as they seek to prevent the sale of a bio-organic weapon and uncover a much larger, more sinister plot as a result. Together with your teammate, you’ll tackle a variety of locations across Africa and, thanks to the included Gold Edition content, you’ll even be able to take a trip down memory lane and experience events that unfolded before the events of RE5 as you explore a familiar mansion.

Taking place after the events of RE5, Resident Evil 6 follows various interconnected stories, bringing together fan-favorite characters like Leon S. Kennedy and newcomers such as Helena Harper. Travel the world and play each story solo or with a friend to unravel the full picture behind a sinister conspiracy that threatens the entire world. Resident Evil 6 also includes all previously released DLC, including additional content for the intense, arcade-style Mercenaries mode, and the unique Agent Hunt mode that flips the script and puts you in control of enemies in other player’s campaigns.
