      Evil 4
      – Step into the shoe of Leon S. Kennedy as he
      shines a light on the grim transformation of a European village
      while searching for the President’s abducted daughter. Resident

      game is available May 21.
    • Resident
      Evil
      – Experience the remaster that brought the 1996
      horror classic back to life. The original 2002 remaster not only
      featured reimagined HD environments and characters, but also
      enhanced vocal performances to create an even more terrifying
      retelling of the original story. This HD remaster features all of
      the chilling moments and claustrophobic tension of the original
      release, and also includes the Wesker’s Report and Wesker’s Report
      II video features. The Resident Evil game is available May

    • Resident
      Evil 0

      aboard the Ecliptic Express, which led up to the Mansion Incident
      depicted in Resident Evil. This ambitious prequel featured
      various mechanics that were new to the series, including the
      partner zapping system, which allows players to switch between the
      two protagonists on the fly. Wesker Mode lets you experience the
      game in a different way by introducing series antagonist Albert
      Wesker as a playable character, complete with his superhuman
      powers. The Resident Evil 0 game is available May 21.

      – Season 9
      – The future is yours in Season 9! In this new Fortnite
      season, the volcano has erupted and forever changed some
      long-lasting locations. Grab the squad to explore the bright
      lights of new attractions like Peely’s Banana Stand and Nugget
      Hut. Catch a ride and quickly traverse areas by flying in and out
      of the new Slipstream wind transportation system. Use the new Air
      Vents to quickly navigate from building to building. You can even
      take a glide over to the new Mega Mall to do some shopping before
      the storm hits. A new season also means a new Battle Pass. More
      than 100 new exclusive rewards are ready for you to unlock, and it
      still costs the same 950 V-bucks. This season, you’ll get the
      Sentinel Outfit and Rox progressive Outfit instantly when you
      purchase the Battle Pass.

    Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online**

    • Donkey Kong Jr. – Based on the popular arcade game, Donkey
      Kong Jr.
      is the sequel to the immensely successful Donkey
      Kong
      game. Play as Donkey Kong’s son, and rescue your dad who
      has been kidnapped and imprisoned in a cage by Mario. Use jumping
      and climbing abilities to clamber up vines and chains, gather
      vital fruit and keys, and open the cage to free your father. Make
      sure you avoid the pesky birds, nasty electric sparks and creepy
      chompers. Four different worlds filled with numerous climbing and
      jumping puzzles await you in this timeless classic.
    • VS. Excitebike – Fans love the Excitebike
      game for its frenetic races, high stakes and sweet jumps. With
      this game, you can take it to the next level with the Famicom disk
      version of VS. Excitebike – complete with two-player split
      screen. Create tracks from 20 classic Excitebike track
      parts, and go for a best time or take on friends. Racing is even
      more exciting when the rivalries are real. You can also try out
      the single-player mode in VS. Excitebike. It adds tracks,
      music and the ability to save your high score.
    • Clu Clu Land – The greedy Sea Urchins have stolen
      all of Clu Clu Land’s gold bars and buried them in a series of
      mazes. As Bubbles, a brave bubble fish, you’ll set out to uncover
      all of the gold bars in each maze. With 20 stages to complete and
      increasingly complex conditions (like having to pass over the gold
      bars twice to uncover them), you might just want to bring along a
      friend for help.
