With the Resident Evil 5 Nintendo Switch release date of October 29, video game tech analysis channel VG Tech has checked out the demo from the Switch eShop to judge its performance. The Resident Evil 5 Nintendo Switch resolution is 1080p in docked mode and 720p in handheld mode, though the frame rate appears to have taken a hit. The Resident Evil 5 Nintendo Switch frame rate has an average of 33fps though it’s far from consistent.
“Portable mode is also not capped at 30fps and appears to also drop below 30fps at points such as during the scene at 2:58,” claims VG Tech. It’ll be interesting to see if the final retail release suffers from the same issues.

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.
