The frightful month of October kicks off with the release of Resident Evil 6 on the PS3 and Xbox 360. If you’d prefer a more complete Resident Evil experience, Capcom is also releasing Resident Evil 6 Archives for the Xbox 360 (which includes Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD, Resident Evil 4 HD, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, and Resident Evil: Degeneration on DVD) as well as the Resident Evil 6 Anthology on the PS3 (which includes Resident Evil: Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, and Resident Evil 4 HD).
The scariness continues (OK, not really) with NBA 2K13, which will be available for the PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, and Xbox 360.
A quartet of Nintendo-published handheld games will also make their way into stores this week. But because Amazon and Nintendo are having some kind of spat, it’s easy to overlook them. There’s Pokemon Black 2/Pokemon White 2 for the DS and Crosswords Plus and Art Academy: Lessons For Everyone! for the 3DS.
Finally, EA has collected 17 classic strategy games and bundled them together as Command & Conquer: The Ultimate Collection , exclusively for the PC.
A huge number of new downloadable games will also be available this week. Check back soon for more details on all of those titles.
