The first 'Resident Evil' is coming to Nintendo Switch in May. Capcom

After a huge April for the Nintendo Switch that saw the release of Mortal Kombat 11, Cuphead and more, May looks to be a more low-key month for the hybrid console.

Nintendo's smaller slate of games for May makes sense considering E3 in June, when.Nintendo and other publishers will announce release dates and news about upcoming titles.

With that said, Nintendo Switch owners looking to tackle some Resident Evil or Assassin's Creed have some good options to look forward to in May.

At this point, there are no Nintendo 3DS releases planned for May but we will update if there's confirmation of any this month.


With the successful release of the remake of Resident Evil 2, Capcom is looking to bring a whole new audience to its long-running franchise. Four games in the series will make their way to the Switch. Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Origins Collection will all release this month.

As for Assassin's Creed, the franchise jumps to Nintendo with the remaster of Assassin's Creed III. Another notable release this month for the Nintendo Switch includes Saints Row: The Third.
