Resident Evil 5 and 6 are Both Coming to Nintendo Switch This Fall

The Resident Evil collection grows on the Nintendo Switch.

Two more Resident Evil games are coming to the Nintendo Switch. Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 are both coming to Nintendo's portable.

Resident Evil 5, which stars Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar as they take on new bio-weapons in Africa, and Resident Evil 6 which frankly stars too many characters, are both coming to the Nintendo Switch this fall.

They join Resident Evil 1, 4, and 0 which were released on the Nintendo Switch earlier this year. While Resident Evil 4 runs fine, there have been some loading issues with Resident Evil 1 and 0 HD. Hopefully the two new Resident Evil games will not have as many issues.
