Last month during Nintendo’s E3 Direct right before the start of the Los Angeles-held event, Capcom announced that series’ classics Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 will be dropping on Nintendo Switch aimed for a “Fall 2019” timeframe launch. For any other detail on the two games’ debut on the handheld console hybrid, Capcom did not expand on what will be new for the game’s addition to the Nintendo eShop.

Leading up to an announcement today, Capcom has revealed that the two titles will officially drop for the Switch this coming October. Alongside the slated release date, Capcom also disclosed that both games will be listed for a price of $29.99 each.

2009’s Resident Evil 5 will include the base title as well as the bevy of extra content that released for the game including Desperate Escape & Lost Nightmares story expansions, PC exclusive No Mercy mode, and Mercenaries United mode. For the 2012 follow-up title, the sixth installment is bundled with No Hope difficulty mode, Predator online mode, Survivor online mode, and Onslaught online mode.

Atop of the game’s approaching release date later this Fall, Capcom also revealed that the Resident Evil Triple Pack will be hitting the Switch’s store that same day as the other two titles. The collection of series titles includes Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6. However, Resident Evil 4 will receive an specialized cartridge while the remaining two sequels will be provided via a download voucher. This pack will be exclusive to North America with a physical release and labeled with a $59.99 price tag.

Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6, and Resident Evil Triple Pack will be available for Nintendo Switch on October 29, 2019.
