Resident Evil 5 and 6 on the Nintendo Switch have an October 29 release date. In the run up to this, Capcom has made demos available for both games in addition to running pre-order discounts on the Nintendo eShop. If you own Resident Evil 0, 1, or 4 for the Nintendo Switch, you’re entitled to 33 percent off on Resident Evil 5 and 6 via the Nintendo eShop. Not too bad when you consider that they have a price of $30 (around Rs. 2,100) each. The pre-order discount makes them a bit more palpable at roughly $20 (around Rs. 1,400) a piece.

However, the catch is you’ll have to pre-order the games from the same Nintendo eShop Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4 were purchased from. Something to keep in mind if you have multiple Nintendo Switch accounts for different regions.
