It may be late for Halloween, but Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2’s bringing the horror to Switch later this month. The compilation sandwiches together these chapters of the Resident Evil story along with all the DLC that was released for them over time — at no extra cost. Not only that, but there are some added features to the Switch version.


Naturally, you’ll be able to play them docked and undocked, and with both standard and motion based control schemes. The motion controls will let you aim a Joy-Con in place of firearms, similar to using a Wiimote with Resident Evil 4. More unique though is that with the second Joy-Con you can actually reload your gun, as if you were loading a fresh magazine.

You’ll also be able to use the Joy-Con as a way of stabbing with your knife, and to shake off unwelcome enemies. Amiibo will also be able to help you out in tight spots, scannable to get ammo and other items in a pinch. There may also be other, more desirable drops as the trailer mentions “exclusive items.”

You can experience all of this for yourself when Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 shambles onto Switch on November 28th.
