Capcom announced that Resident Evil 4 was getting re-released on modern consoles earlier this year, but now exactly when the best modern entry in the series will surface. And it’s a little earlier than expected, too. Previously, all the publisher/developer revealed was an ambiguous “fall” timeframe. Now? You’ll be able to experience one of gaming’s best boss fights ever (“Del Lago,” pictured above) on your PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come August 30th.
A post on Capcom Unity notes that this version brings in all of the various bonus content across the game’s myriad releases — extra costumes, a side-story starring Resident Evil 2‘s Ada Wong — but doesn’t mention anything of the physical release promised earlier this year. If the prices of the recent Resident Evil 5 and 6 are anything to go by, RE 4 should be $20 when it hits the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live late next month. Unlike the demo (VR or not) for Resident Evil 7, this trip through a creepy Spanish town shouldn’t give you motion sickness.
Oh, and just as a reminder: In the game’s opening moments, don’t forget to save that dog from the bear trap. Trust me.
