Today’s Nintendo E3 Direct included a new Resident Evil trailer, which revealed that two more games in the series are coming to the Nintendo Switch this fall. Those games would be Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6. Here is the trailer:


In RE5, Umbrella and its viruses may have been taken care of, but a new catastrophe begins in Africa. Villagers are being turned into dangerously twisted, and aggressive creatures.

In RE6, some familiar fan-favorite characters return. They include Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, and Ada Wong. Alongside some new faces, they must contend with a new, terribly virulent threat: the C-virus. The story takes place in North America, Edonia (a war-torn Eastern European state), and the city of Lanshiang in China. Below are some screenshots from the Nintendo Direct:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
