Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 have been remastered for Nintendo Switch with HD graphics. This collection includes my favorite entry in the series Resident Evil 4. You'll get the most bang for your buck since this gives you three games in one package.
This collection gives you remastered versions of the original Resident Evil game and its prequel, Resident Evil 0. Shoot your way through an abomination-infested mansion on the outskirts of Raccoon City in the first game. Then play the second game as Rebecca Chambers as you fight through a train filled with horrors.
Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, two Alpha Team agents, must investigate the disappearance of an elite special forces squad. Their mission will take them to an abandoned mansion on the outskirts of Raccoon City, where they will encounter zombie hordes and untold horrors. See if you can survive.
With the help of a convicted criminal, Billy Coen, play as Rebecca Chambers, a member of an elite special forces group, who must investigate a train that stopped in the middle of a forest. Explore tight spaces and encounter sudden zombie attacks as the story unfolds.
In this game, you play as Leon S. Kennedy, a U.S. agent who must fight human atrocities and hostile locals in his mission to find and protect the president's daughter. It's arguably the pinnacle of Resident Evil games and is a fun option for anyone who enjoys the horror genre.
Follow Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar as they investigate an outbreak in Africa. This game features both single-player, co-op modes, and includes all DLC previously released in earlier versions of the game.
This horror game lets you play on your own or with up to four others as you blast through the main campaign. You get to play as fan favorites from previous games as well as new characters. It also has a multiplayer mode that allows up to six players to match off against each other.
Players once again follow Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they face lurking horrors on an abandoned cruise ship. Ammo is scarce and weapons hard to find, adding to the difficulty of this classic game. Now, with the addition of Nintendo Switch's motion controls, you can aim your gun faster and shoot more accurately.
Claire Redfield and Moira Burton find themselves waking up at an abandoned prison after being attacked by unknown armed forces. See if you can survive the onslaught of atrocities to find out who put you here and what their plan is. Motion controls have been added to increase aiming speed and firing accuracy on the Nintendo Switch.
This rare physical copy contains a physical cartridge for Resident Evil Revelations and a downloadable code for Resident Evil Revelations 2. Follow Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield onto an abandoned cruise ship in the first game. Continue your adventure with Claire Redfield and Moira Burton in the sequel as you explore an abandoned prison island. All add-ons and DLC are included for both games. Raid Mode is also included so you can play solo and co-op gaming sessions.
Oh, the horror
We're stoked about all of the classic Resident Evil games available on Nintendo Switch. With the addition of remastered graphics and optional updated controls, the gaming experience still feels relevant and fun with modern gaming. Hopefully, more titles from the series will release as time goes on. We'll continue to update this list as they do.
If you're looking to play the best Resident Evil games once again or for the first time, we recommend getting the Resident Evil Triple Pack. It includes Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6. The fourth game is arguably the most popular in the series. Plus, you'll get three games with this purchase. If you're not sure where to start, we recommend Resident Evil Origins Collection since it provides two games and helps you know where the series began.
