May is looking to be a slow month for games. The most interesting games are the ports of ‘Resident Evil’ (remake), ‘Resident Evil 0’ and ‘Resident Evil 4’ for the Switch, and Rage 2.

Nintendo

Resident Evil

In the the early 2000s, Nintendo had exclusive rights to the ‘Resident Evil’ series and released the remake of the original in 2002 along with the prequel ‘Resident Evil 0’ for the Gamecube. ‘Resident Evil 4’ launched in 2005 shortly before the launch of the original Wii console (it would later be ported to the Wii).

Resident Evil

The remake of the original ‘Resident Evil’ first released on the Gamecube as an exclusive for Nintendo, then later upgraded to HD and released on other consoles.

Resident Evil 0

Released at the same time as the first game’s remake, the prequel features Rebecca Chambers (who we first see during the Chris Redfield playthrough of ‘Resident Evil’). She is joined by new character Billy Coen. The player is able to switch between Rebecca and Billy almost anytime they choose. The game was remastered in HD and released on other consoles and PC in 2016.

Resident Evil 4

One of the most popular games in the franchise, the game features Leon Kennedy (who originally appeared in ‘Resident Evil 2’) as he goes to a remote European village to rescue the President’s daughter Ashley Graham. Originally a Gamecube exclusive, it was later upgraded to HD (and includes all DLC) and ported to other consoles.

This is the PC trailer, but it is still representative of gameplay.
