Resident Evil 4 iPhone confirmed for West

End of July Japan, rest of the world soon.

Capcom has updated its Twitter with news that the iPhone version of Resident Evil 4 will be released at the end of this month in Japan.

The rest of the world will get its hands on the game, dubbed Resident Evil 4: Mobile Edition, "shortly thereafter".

The iPhone version of the game appeared on the Japanese iTunes App Store earlier this week, apparently in error as it was quickly removed.

We weren't one of the people lucky enough to grab it while it was available, but YouTube videos suggest you manoeuvre Leon Kennedy around a Spanish village with an on-screen analogue stick and use buttons on the other side of the screen to run, shoot and knife zombies.

Visually it's closer to a PSone game than the wonderfully realised GameCube (and subsequently PS2) original, but the grungy gloom suits the system's relative technical limitations.
