Capcom showcases newest game engine 'KITCHEN' tech demo for Project Morpheus at E3 2015
Capcom have confirmed they will showcase ‘KITCHEN‘, a tech demo for Project Morpheus, the PlayStation 4‘s virtual reality system, at E3 2015 today.
Capcom are pretty proud of their new engine, stating “a new level of sensory immersion” will be present thanks to their new ‘TBD’ game engine.
‘KITCHEN’ takes place in a “disturbing kitchen” that “provides the unsettling backdrop for a tense scenario that draws the player into a hyper-realistic virtual world like never before’.
KITCHEN will be just the tip of the iceberg for Capcom’s VR titles, with multiple new VR IPs rumoured to currently be in development.
KITCHEN is said to have “photorealistic” visuals that run in 1080p HD resolution at 60 frames per second. It also utilises Project Morpheus’ 120 frames per second output to deliver one of the smoothest VR experiences available.
Editor’s take: Capcom getting into VR can only be a good thing, as they have a knack for creating memorable environments and characters. Hopefully more big-name Japanese developers and publishers get behind VR in the near future.
