The release of Resident Evil Village on iOS and iPad is a new milestone in mobile gaming. It became possible thanks to the arrival of the A17 Pro, M1 and M2 chipsets. This game supports controllers, so it is better to choose this control method than touch.
And here’s what touch controls look like in RE8. Unfortunately, there are too many buttons even for hardcore mobile gamers. The button layout shows that Capcom took a cue from the Xbox Series Wireless Controller. This also proves that we have a full-fledged port, it’s a pity that it is not properly optimized for touch screens.
As for Capcom’s plans for Android, they are vague – first we need to see how Resident Evil 8 will take root on iOS and iPad.
Meanwhile, enthusiasts are already running new REs, at least Resident Evil 7 via the Termux-Box emulator. For this, the top Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is used. The result is good – 30-40 FPS and touch control. In the meantime, it’s worth waiting to see if emulators can provide something similar in Resident Evil 8.
