The Nintendo Switch is getting two more games from the "Resident Evil" franchise and fans couldn’t be happier.

Over the past two years, Capcom has released the remake of the original “Resident Evil,” “Resident Evil 0,” “Resident Evil 2,” “Resident Evil 4,” and “Resident Evil Revelations” for the Nintendo Switch. Now, “Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6” have joined the already long-list of survival horror re-releases for the Nintendo Switch.

During the Nintendo Direct E3 2019 presentation, Capcom and Nintendo announced that “Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6” would be released for the Nintendo Switch this fall. This announcement was coupled with a trailer for “Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6” Switch which you can watch below.

“Resident Evil 5” was originally released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2009. The game, which stars Sheva Alomar and Chris Redfield, plays like a cooperative action survival horror adventure game set in Africa. The “Resident Evil 5” Switch version will also feature local and online co-op.

“Resident Evil 6” was originally released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012. The game featured four playable characters—Chris Redfield, Jake Muller, Leon S. Kennedy, and Ada Wong—and took the franchise in a more action-oriented direction which gave fans mixed feelings.

The trailer for the official announcement of “Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6” Switch has two teenagers breaking into a seemingly abandoned house. The house gives off that obviously haunted vibe and things are made creepier by the fact that there are no lights. The two then take out a Nintendo Switch and begin playing the original “Resident Evil” game. As they progress further in the game, one of them notices a sound and they both scramble to make their way out.

It’s been confirmed by fans who tried out the demo that “Resident Evil 5” Switch will follow a split-screen mechanic for local co-op which can be seen below:

Both games are expected to play similarly to their original counterparts, however, the main challenge will be with “Resident Evil 5” Switch. “Resident Evil 5” is famous for the amazing co-op experience it gave to players when it came out. Do you think “Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6” will live up to expectations? Let us know down below.

“Resident Evil 5” and “Resident Evil 6” will be available on the Nintendo Switch this September to December.
