Just because tall lady is currently dominating every Resident Evil conversation, that doesn't mean Capcom is done with Leon S. Kennedy. In fact, Leon's signature game, Resident Evil 4, is getting a VR version on Oculus Quest.
The VR port of Resident Evil 4 was announced at the most recent Resident Evil Showcase. After more news about Village and Resident Evil's Dead by Daylight debut, Facebook Executive Producer Mike Morishita came on to announce Resident Evil 4 VR, a joint effort between Capcom, Oculus Studios, and Armature Studio. No release date was given, but we'll learn more from the next Oculus Showcase on April 21.
That Facebook got to make the announcement, that more news is coming from Oculus, and that only the Oculus logo was shown all point to the likelihood of exclusivity. We'll have to wait for word from Capcom to be sure, but it looks like only Quest owners will get to experience being Leon in first person.
Only a small amount of gameplay footage was shown, but we got to see the player point a gun at zombified farmers, type on a typewriter, turn a crank, and even do a trick with their weapons.
We'll have more on Resident Evil 4 VR after the Oculus Showcase on April 21.
