Update, 9/25/23: During Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show presentation, the publisher announced that Resident Evil Village and its Winters’ Expansion are coming to iOS on October 30. The game will be playable on iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and iPad Air and iPad Pro with the M1 chip or later. The Winters’ Expansion includes the Shadows of Rose story campaign.
Check out the original story below to learn how other triple-A titles such as Resident Evil 4 Remake, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and Death Stranding will also jump to the new generation of iOS devices.
Original Story: Apple held a special keynote event today to reveal the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, new Apple Watches, and more. While new iPhones aren’t exactly surprising given the company’s annual cadence, what is surprising is that Apple has also announced that Resident Evil 4 (Remake), Resident Evil Village, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and Death Stranding are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as reported by IGN.
While details were sparse, Apple showed a few screens of the games on a virtual version of the iPhone 15 Pro during today’s event, stopping short of showing gameplay of these games running on the newly announced phones. It’s unclear what the gameplay experiences for these games will be like on the iPhone 15 Pro and Max; considering it’s already possible to connect a Bluetooth controller, like the PlayStation DualSense or Xbox Series X/S gamepad, to various Apple devices, it’s not a stretch to assume that’s the best way to play these games on this new device.
As for how these games run on the devices, that remains to be seen. Apple says both Resident Evil games and Death Stranding will be available on the phones later this year, while Assassin’s Creed Mirage hits the devices in the first half of 2024, according to IGN.
Resident Evil 4 Remake launched earlier this year, while Capcom released Resident Evil Village in 2021. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is Game Informer’s current cover story game, with an exclusive coverage hub as well, and the latest entry in this long-running franchise hits PlayStation, Xbox, and PC on October 5.
