A recent announcement has unveiled the release date for the mobile version of Resident Evil Village. This popular game will soon be available on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and select iPad models. Let’s take a closer look.
Resident Evil Village: When can you play it on your iPhone 15 Pro?
Capcom, the studio and publisher behind the recent Resident Evil game, announced during the Tokyo Game Show that it will release Resident Evil Village on 30 October 2023. But this is not all, as the company will release the mobile port of Resident Evil 4 Remake on the new iPhone 15 Pros and latest iPads. Although pre-orders for the Resident Evil 4 Remake are live on the App Store, which lists the game as “Coming Soon – Expected December 31, 2023.”
So, it is unclear if this is the global release date since the announcement was made in Japan or just a placeholder release date. The Resident Evil 4 Village will cost $39.99, while the Resident Evil 4 Remake will go on sale for $59.99. Both games will support HDR, game controllers, and much more.
Why is this such a big deal?
In recent years, smartphones have become increasingly more powerful, running graphically intense 3D games. But these mobile devices were always seen as a cutdown version of their PC and console counterparts. However, Apple is shaking up this dynamic with the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The latest flagship iPhone models have the Apple A17 Pro processor, which supports hardware-accelerated ray tracing. Simply put, it has enough horsepower to run console-grade video games. Typically, one would need a partner console to stream the game to their smartphones to enjoy AAA titles on the go. So, Apple’s new iPhones could start a major change in the mobile gaming industry.
