Apple and Capcom are about to make quite a big splash in the mobile gaming market as Resident Evil Village is set to launch on iPhone.
The game was originally shown off running on the new iPhone 15 Pro devices during the September Apple Event. Since its debut, the internet has been a buzz about Apple’s so-called “console quality mobile gaming chip” in the new device.

Gameplay of Resident Evil Village has already hit the internet. A video showing off the game’s visuals while plugged into a TV (thanks to the new USB C port on the iPhone 15 range), looks impressive. This is all possible thanks to Apple’s new dedicated 6-core GPU included in the new A17 Pro chip on the iPhone 15 Pro. This also means that Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 4 Remake are only playable on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. You can also play it on any M1 device including the 2022 iPad Air and 2021 iPad Pro.
Capcom now says the game will launch on 30 October. It will also cost $39,99. Capcom also plans to launch Resident Evil 4 Remake sometime this year on the iPhone. At the moment, the pre-order page is not available for either of the games. However, Capcom says that when Resident Evil Village does go up for pre-order, users who buy it will earn themselves an extra costume for Rosemary Winters. She is playable in the Shadows of Rose DLC.
You can watch some gameplay of Resident Evil Village running on the iPhone 15 Pro below. It is shown both running in handheld mode and connected to a TV. It looks impressive and seems to be on par with a PS4.
