Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 demos hit the Switch eShop today

Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 release later this month, and now you can try both titles before you buy.

Capcom has released demos for both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on the Switch eShop.

Give them a try.

Resident Evil 5 will include both online and couch co-op, all previously released DLC, Versus mode, four costumes, and No Mercy mode. Also included is “The Mercenaries United” mode which combines The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion mode for up to four players.

Resident Evil 6 on Switch can be played solo or in four-player co-op. It features the Survivor mode that pits up to six-players against one another. It also comes with all DLC and two costumes each for the main characters.

The games will run you $29.99 each through the eShop. But, those who purchased Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil, or Resident Evil 4 on Switch can receive a 33% discount on each. You will need to have purchased the aforementioned titles on the same Nintendo Account.

You can also pick up a bundle featuring Resident Evil 4-6 in the Resident Evil Triple Pack. RE4 will be on a cartridge while the other two will be available through a voucher.

You can grab this pack for $59.99 beginning October 29 in North America, which is the release date for RE5 and RE6.
