Capcom drops stunning screenshots of Resident Evil 4 Remake and Resident Evil Village on iPhone 15 Pro

Real-world performance of the new iPhone 15 models and how well they run these Resident Evil titles will be the true test.


There was a time when we thought gaming rigs were the pinnacle of gaming experiences. While this is mostly true to this day, technology has come a long way, and now, handheld devices like the iPhone are stepping into the spotlight.

Capcom, in a move that has left many jaws on the floor, has unveiled plans to launch its two most recent Resident Evil entries, Resident Evil 4 (the remake, not the original), and Resident Evil Village, on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

If you're wondering about the nitty-gritty technicalities of how this will be possible, these titles are making their grand debut on smartphones, thanks to the beastly power of the A17 Pro chip.

That being said, can the two Resident Evil titles really run on the iPhone at a smooth 30 fps or more, just like their console and PC counterparts? With the A17 Pro chip flaunting a new Apple-designed six-core GPU (which, by the way, Apple claims is 20% faster), the prospects look promising.

The chip's incredible ray tracing and mesh shading capabilities enable Apple's latest smartphone to render complex objects with ease without affecting the quality or performance of the game.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Apple, in its consumerist style, has always showcased the best possible version of its products, and while every company would do the same, the real-world performance of the iPhone 15 Pro and Max remains to be seen. If these devices can deliver the same level of quality we've seen in the screenshots shared by Capcom, it's a safe bet that Apple won't have any problems selling its flagship iPhones.

Japanese developer Capcom has also announced that the Resident Evil 4 Remake will be available on iPads and Macs, but this will be limited to devices equipped with the M1 chip or later. This, of course, makes a lot of sense given the power and efficiency of Apple's M1 chip, which has already revolutionized the Mac lineup.

Capcom's move to bring these iconic titles to Apple devices is a testament to how far technology has come. The lines between console, PC, and mobile gaming are blurring, and it's exciting to witness this evolution. As we eagerly await the release of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, one thing is clear: the future of gaming is here, and it's more accessible than ever.

Preorders for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are now live, ahead of the official launch on September 22. Interestingly, despite Apple's consistent technological innovations, these upcoming iPhones will be the very first in the lineup to feature a USB-C port.
