Capcom Next has been more concise this summer, focusing on delivering updates for just three titles: Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster, and the iOS/Mac port of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Here’s a quick recap of each announcement, which includes the tiniest teasers for the next Resident Evil title.

Kunitsu-Gami: The Path of the Goddess

Ahead of its July 19th launch, the fantastic action-strategy hybrid is getting a demo today on all platforms the game is available on. The demo will also feature crossover content with Okami in the form of themed weapons and costumes for the protagonist and the maiden. Interestingly, the Okami-themed items will only appear in the demo, but Capcom says that if enough people play it, these items will become available in the full game at launch via an update.

Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster

The remaster of the 2006 zombie game is coming on September 19th (the physical version will arrive in November). We’ve got our first look at gameplay and a few graphical “before/after” comparisons that show just how dramatic the presentation improvements really are. The game will run at 4K 60FPS and feature real-time lighting that changes depending on the time of day. Gameplay improvements include the ability to move while aiming, an auto-save feature, a better UI, and improved NPC behavior. Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard on iOS and Mac

The latest mobile port of RE features improved touch controls and a modern auto-aim/shoot feature for those who need a little extra assist. Menus and inventory are now touch-compatible. Capcom reveals that the first section of the game is free to play, allowing players to try it out before buying.

Additionally, Capcom confirms what was probably already obvious: a modern Resident Evil is in development. RE7 director Koshi Nakanishi has apparently returned to the helm, stating, “It was really hard to figure out what to do after 7. But I found this, and honestly, it feels significant. I can’t share the details yet, but I hope you’re excited for the day I get to do it.”
