As if new Village trailers and demos weren’t enough, the Resident Evil Showcase had one more surprise in store in the form of Resident Evil 4 VR is coming to Oculus Quest 2.
There’s no set Resident Evil 4 VR release date just yet. However, more information is planned for the Oculus Gaming Showcase on April 21 via the Capcom Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube channels.
Resident Evil 4 VR takes the original Resident Evil 4 and turns it into an immersive, first-person game. Like with Ethan’s viewpoint in Resident Evil 7, you’ll only see Leon’s hands and weapons in RE 4 VR.
The game has been tweaked in some ways to match the new perspective, e.g. the attaché case inventory system unfolds dynamically in front of you instead of just being another menu.
Mike Verdu, VP of Content at Facebook Reality, said, “We’re thrilled about this game. It’s immersive… and will bring new depth and richness to the Resident Evil 4 experience you know and love.”
Capcom said they’ve been wanting to bring Resident Evil 4 to modern audiences in a new way for a while now, though we’d also like to think it has something to do with the rumored Resident Evil 4 remake too.
