That means fans will be able to hop right on killing zombies right before Halloween.
Both titles arrive in the Nintendo eShop for $29.99 each. While the titles both definitely have some age on them, this is the price point we expect from Capcom.
Fans in North America will also see a retail release that includes Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6. Which is also set to launch on October 29th for $59.99, In my opinion making it the better deal.
The triple pack will include Resident Evil 4 on cartridge while 5 and 6 will still be digital download only.
