Resident Evil 4 Switch Gyro Aiming

Resident Evil 4 has been released on just about every gaming platform imaginable at this point, so hearing that the game is out on Switch really isn’t surprising at all. However, Nintendo fans were holding out hope that the Switch version would include the gyro aiming from the Wii version, as it was a feature that made it unique and that feature is possible on Switch.

However, when the Switch port of Resident Evil 4 launched recently fans were met with the bad news that it’s a simple port similar to the PS4 and Xbox One versions. This isn’t to say it’s bad, as that’s how the game originally released back on GameCube, but many fans are voicing their frustration regarding the lack of the feature.

While bringing up actually wanting motion controls in a video game isn’t something you hear all the time, RE4 was a rare case of getting it right and the Switch’s motion controls are the best we’ve seen yet. Game’s that utilize gyro aiming makes the shooting experience that much more enjoyable and precise, which was the case with RE4 on Wii. Having this feature on Switch would easily make it the best place to play the game, but as it stands it’s just yet another port of a game that has been ported countless time.

What makes this even stranger is that the Switch ports of both RE Revelations 1 and 2 both include gyro aiming, even though they didn’t have that feature originally. It’s possible that Capcom was more willing to go out of their way to add the feature considering Revelation 1 and 2 are both more current games, but considering that RE4 is still a favorite for many it seems strange that they would brush it aside.

Of course, many gamers out there are calling for Capcom to add gyro aiming to the game via a post-launch update, and it’s entirely possible that they could. However, considering that the company has been very quiet on the subject and didn’t mention that a major feature like this would be coming post-launch is enough to keep me from getting my hopes up. We’ll keep you posted if this changes down the road.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
