Resident Evil 6

After Capcom offered demos for Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on Switch this week, Digital Foundry examined the two games in greater detail. The bottom line is that they seem to be a bit of a mixed bag if you’re considering the technical side of things.

Here’s the full roundup of information:

Along with Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6 also received a demo on the Switch eShop today. Get a look at some footage below.

Capcom has issued a pair of pre-order trailers for the Switch versions of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Both can be found below.

Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 launch on Switch this month. If you’re looking to see what they have to offer, you can download demos for both titles right now. They’re currently live on the Australian eShop, and should be extended to other regions very soon.

Resident Evil 5 includes all previously released DLC, No Mercy mode, and the new mode “The Mercenaries United” that combines the fan-favorite modes The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion. As for Resident Evil 6, all DLC is included, along with two costumes per main character that were originally exclusives, but can now be unlocked in-game.

At E3 2019, Capcom announced two more Resident Evil games for Switch. Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 were both expected on the platform later this year.

Capcom has now provided a release date for both titles. Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 launch for Switch on October 29, meaning they’ll be out just in time for Halloween.


At E3 2019, Capcom kindly invited us to their booth for some behind-closed-doors gameplay demos of their upcoming Switch releases. In part six of this series, I’ll be taking a retrospective look at my experience with Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6.
