While the game will be playable on Nintendo Switch makes sense but the VR seems like an overkill as the leaked specs of Nintendo Switch suggests that the upcoming console does not have enough juice for running a game like Resident Evil 7 in VR.

Many gamers were disappointed with the current gen console as they can’t seem to run games at 1080 resolution and 60 FPS. But Capcom has confirmed that the upcoming game will run at 1080 resolution and 60 frames per second on basic PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Also, many Resident Evil fans have raised concerns over switching to first person perspective for Resident Evil 7 but Capcom has assured fans of the franchise that the gameplay is very similar to classic Resident Evil games.

If you just look at the gameplay, it’s actually very similar to the feel of the classic Resident Evil titles. We asked ourselves what makes Resident Evil special, so we actually drew a lot of inspiration from the first Resident Evil game during the development of Resident Evil 7.

Resident Evil 7 is an upcoming horror-survival game developed by Capcom and is scheduled to launch on January 24, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
