Digital Foundry - Resident Evil 5 & 6 on Switch

Capcom's Resident Evil ports for Switch have been pretty good so far, but what's the score with the latest Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6? Capcom has released demo code, we've downloaded both and checked them out. The basics are there, resolution is high, but performance isn't quite right.

Resident Evil 5's Switch framerate and resolution tested

An evil port?

A demo for Resident Evil 5 is available on Switch, which gives us a good look at how this port fares. According to the video above, the game is full 1080p docked and 720p handheld. The framerate isn't capped at 30 fps, which means it's a bit all over the place. Check out the video to see how things play out.

Hideki Kamiya says the Resident Evil dev team played Tetris Attack so much during work that director Shinji Mikami had to ban the game

Well...it is a great game!

Platinum has up a massive blog featuring an interview with Hideki Kamiya. The blog takes a look at Hideki's career, as well as all the different games he enjoyed while growing up. In part of the interview, Kamiya discusses his affinity for Tetris Attack.

Turns out Kamiya and a lot of other devs played Tetris Attack a great deal back during his Capcom days. Kamiya was involved with development of the original Resident Evil, but it seems sometimes Tetris Attack would get in the way of dev team's work!

When I was working on Resident Evil, Tetris Attack was really popular at the office. We’d play against each other every day, to the point where work got ignored and Shinji Mikami had to put out an order banning Tetris Attack.

I'm sure there had to be a delay or two for Resident Evil. If there ever was, now we can blame some of that on Tetris Attack!

Capcom details their NY Comic-Con 2019 lineup

Capcom's big plans for the big show

Capcom will be at New York Comic Con 2019, and we’ll be bringing a whole lot with us! Take a seat in the Mastermind’s chair, walk on the wild side with Rajang, and grab some great Capcom merch at the Capcom booth (#1420). Read on for more details, including where to find the World of Capcom panel!

Games

PROJECT RESISTANCE (WORKING TITLE) – PS4, XB1, Steam

Set against the backdrop of the Resident Evil universe, this brand-new asymmetrical online survival horror experience throws four Survivors into a Mastermind’s twisted experiment. Surviving the three individual stages that make up the demo’s map requires good teamwork and communication, because the Mastermind will use any means necessary to prevent the Survivors from escaping – including taking direct control of the deadly Tyrant.

As a Survivor, you’ll need to take down tough enemies, assist your teammates, utilize special skills, and work together to make it through each stage if you want a shot at escaping. Each character has their own unique role and abilities that can help other Survivors or hinder the Mastermind, making teamwork a key part of enduring enemies and traps as you solve puzzles and search for a way out. As a Mastermind, you’ll use a series of cards to place traps, zombies, and vicious creatures around each stage to thwart the Survivors’ progress, even unleashing the unstoppable Tyrant to (literally) crush the Survivors’ ambitions.

For more info, check out the gameplay video below to see how a full match can play out:

Both the Survivor and Mastermind roles will be playable at the show, so be sure to bring a few friends to play with – or against! NYCC also marks the first time Project Resistance will be playable in North America, so make time to swing by the Capcom booth and check out this unique take on survival horror.

Resident Evil Triple Pack trailer released

Triple the terror!

Take survival horror on the go with #RE4, #RE5, and #RE6 in the Resident Evil Triple Pack for Nintendo Switch, available at North American retailers beginning October 29th!

Resident Evil 4 is worth the price of purchase for most people. I had a lot of fun with Resident Evil 5, but I think that's because I played the whole thing co-op with a friend. Resident Evil 6 just didn't do it for me, but I never made it more than a few hours into it. Perhaps I need to give it another shot, and this would be the perfect chance to do so!

Resident Evil film franchise reboot is in "active development," according to its director

The horror!

Things have been somewhat quiet about the reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise, but the director behind the new installment wants everyone to know that things are going well. In an interview with Screenrant, director Johannes Roberts confirmed that the new film is in "active development" right now.

“We are in active development of that at the moment. I pitched them a take, and they really loved it. So, we are just gearing up on that as we speak, really. I’m in the office all the time there. So, yeah, it’s great. It’s gonna be super scary. It’s super, super scary. And it’s just getting back to the roots of the game. I think, at the moment, I’m not really allowed to say much more than that. But it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
