Capcom and Numskull have partnered together to bring an official Resident Evil VII 4D candle to market, along with some and other related merchandise.
The candle is said to create a 4D experience, bringing the smell of the Resident Evil VII plantation to your playing space to better immerse you in the horror. It’s being primarily marketed towards PSVR but it should prove effective when playing the upcoming horror title traditionally as well.
The 4D candle will cost you £10 in the Numskull store and comes in a metallic case with a burn time of around 25 hours.
Ben Grant, of Numskull said:
Contrary to earlier reports that jumped the gun a little, the candle definitely does not smell of blood. However, it does manage to represent the scent of the Baker House Mansion, adding to the horror, fear and adrenaline you get whilst playing the game – especially in VR.
This Official 4D candle is specifically tailored to the game and will help make you feel like you’re actually standing in the abandoned plantation house, to enhance the gaming experience
added Stefano Barolo, of Capcom.
Other products in the Numskull Resident Evil range include a snapback, a selection of t-shirts, a heat reactive mug, keyring, and leather wallet.
And yes, before anyone asks, I’ll be buying it. I’m a Resident Evil fan and a tool.
