Heads-up, RE fans: Resident Evil 5 and 6 on Nintendo Switch will each include a patch at launch that includes gyroscopic and motion controls, giving you even more control over how you play.

Both games land tomorrow, so pre-purchase now to start playing right at launch!
Thanks, Capcom?

THAT'S a good start. Hopefully they'll also patch in performance fixes that restores the motion blur and ups the framerate in both games.

Wonder if Dark1x will take a peek and confirm any differences in the patch, and hell any other changes there might have been since the demos went gold.

Also, I think RE5 and 6 were patched together since surely both were ported by Q-LOC, who I believe already did the PS4 and XBO versions based on their PC port from long ago. RE4 was likely by Neobards or whoever?

That's actually pretty solid from Capcom. I might pick these up at some point once they're reasonably priced.

I hope it's not like the motion controls on RE Revelations which required to use separated joycons. I want gyro aim like on BotW.

Yeah, if anything our best chance is the final version being improved from the demo build.

Do we know if the discount for previous RE owners only apply for pre orders?

Possibility of me getting these went up 50%. Good job, Capcom
Same here. I said that I won't buy minimal effort ports from Capcom, but if they do show at least some effort, that changes things, and then it's more a question of whether I want the game or not (will play the demos to decide, I loved RE4 on the Wii, and enjoyed both Revelations 1 and 2).

Even if they added motion to 4, I don't think it would be as good as the Wii edition.

This makes these tempting since I never played them and always dreaded aiming with a joystick, but I see many people complaining here.
Is it the price or because the switch version of 4 is bad for some reason?

I'm about to throw the OT up for these, anyone got a suggestion for the title?

Shit now I'm definitely considering it. I forgot how fun these games are until I started playing the demo.

Ah that may be. I thought they were specifically talking about separated joycons.
Well, the promotional video when it launched showed separated joycons but I guess they have no way to know if you are using the comfort grip.
But it's true that you couldn't use the Pro Controller with motion controls in those games.

Don't they both run like crap on Switch.
I don't see why Switch wouldn't easily be able to handle 60fps in both games.

Huh. Hmmn. I played RE5 on PC with hydra motion controllers (and it was fantastic actually). This almost puts me in the buy column.

But yeah. 30 fps cap please.
