E3 2019: Capcom Brings Resident Evil 5 and 6 Back from the Dead on the Switch

Yes. The best Resident Evil games. Finally.

Nintendo’s relationship with the Resident Evil franchise has been… spotty. Usually, it would just house the occasional port. Sometimes, it gets a remaster. And a few times it’s even got an exclusive or two (Resident Evil 4, Revelations, the Mercenaries 3D, ect), but if it actually manages to keep them as exclusives, well… that was always hit or miss. If you only played Resident Evil games on Nintendo consoles, there would be more than a few noticeable gaps in your library, but at least two major gaps are being closed – Nintendo Switch players will soon be able to enjoy Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on their console of choice.

…Why you’d want to play the racist and the awful one, though, is beyond me.

Resident Evil 5: 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. 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 works together to investigate and stop those responsible for the viral outbreak.

Resident Evil 6: Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 delivers an epic dramatic horror experience. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Ada Wong are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a new horror, the highly virulent C-virus, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.

It’s kind of funny to me how they call it bioterrorism and not "fantasy body horror."

Anyway, it’s pretty obvious this is no one’s top priority, and frankly it’s kind of a shame they aren’t bringing over the actually good Resident Evil game, 7. But I guess if you like the goofy fun of shooting a big wad of walking blood and eyeballs, you could do worse than these.

Both games come out this fall.
