During its TGS 2023 stream, Capcom showcased the Following upcoming ports revealed during the Apple iPhone 15 event. Capcom also announced pricing for the mobile (and macOS in the case of the former) ports of Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village (Free) during the stream. While the games will be free to start, they will have a one time in app purchase to unlock the full game. The pricing for Japan revealed in the stream below matches the game’s price on Steam in both cases. (Update) The official pricing for the release is now available thanks to App Store pre-orders going live. The base game for Resident Evil Village will be a $39.99 unlock with a $19.99 in app purchase for DLC pack. There’s also a $4.99 All Access Voucher purchase listed. The pages for those DLC packs on Steam reveal more details here and here. Watch footage from the games being played on iPad and more below:
It is worth noting that the DLC for both Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village will be a separate purchase going by the stream. I assume the newly-released Separate Ways for Resident Evil 4 Remake will be $9.99 while the Winters’ Expansion will be $19.99 for Resident Evil Village. Capcom’s stream above also mentioned that you can customize the buttons and placement of touch controls as you like. While I will likely use a Backbone One or Kishi to play these on iPhone, I always test out touch controls in a mobile port so I’m interested to see how it ends up working. Check out a screengrab from the stream showing customized sizes for touch controls below:
If you’ve not followed both of these releases after the Apple event, Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village were originally confirmed for iPhone 15 Pro, but Capcom also confirmed that Resident Evil 4 Remake will come to macOS and iPadOS devices with an M1 or better. Resident Evil Village is already available on macOS, so the iOS and iPadOS release will be a single purchase when it arrives this year with support for M1 iPads and better.
Check out the official website for these ports here. Resident Evil 4 Remake is due this year for iPhone 15 Pro, iPad (M1 and later) models, and macOS. Resident Evil Village releases on October 30th for iOS and iPadOS with pre-orders available here. On the App Store, both games will be a free download with a one time in app purchase to access the full game. The games will support on screen controls, game controllers, multi-touch, HDR, and more when they launch on Apple devices. Resident Evil 4 Remake will have cross progression on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS while Resident Evil Village will have cross progression on iPadOS and iOS only. What do you think of the ports based on the new gameplay and pricing?
Update: Added Resident Evil Village iOS and iPadOS pre-order link for the App Store.
