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. Resident Evil 5 will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $29.99 on October 29 th.

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. Resident Evil 6 will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $29.99 on October 29 th.
