Resident Evil VII ‘Welcomes You Home’ With Scented Candle…

Morbid Resident Evil fans might be in for a treat, it seems the folks over at Numskull have decided to make some Resident Evil VII themed accessories, one specifically would be their delicious sounding ‘Baker House Mansion’ scented 4D candle… yum.

There were earlier rumors of a ‘blood scented’ RE VII themed candle hitting the market, however, official reports are that this was a mistake, instead of a strong metallic blood scent, we’re greeted to whatever the Numskull team has decided the putrid, disease ridden, run down Baker’s home would smell like, which I would only assume to be something gross… not lavender and orange peelings.

This bizarre video game accessory is designed with VR in mind, with hopes of helping gamers fully immerse themselves into the world of Capcom’s upcoming sequel to the long running fan favorite Resident Evil series. Numskull has various other items for sale as well as the special 4D gimmick candle, such as; various t-shirt designs, a sweet bloody hand-print heat activated coffee mug, key rings, hats and a gorgeous blood smeared Resident Evil VII wallet.

Besides the goriffic themed items above, in recent news, Capcom has released a new trailer, albeit a very short one for the upcoming game, which is slated for a January 24th release date. Below you will find the new ‘Welcome Home’ mini-micro-trailer, hopefully someone out their will get a little enjoyment out of it, I found that the candle trailer, something I’ll never buy, to be a far more entertaining watch.

Can’t win em’ all I guess.


Official Press Release

London – Friday 13th January: Capcom and Numskull are delighted to formally announce the official Resident Evil™ 4D candle – and other related merchandise – to clear up earlier inaccurate media reports from an unauthorised press release.

The 4D Candle is the perfect way to set the scene when playing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard™. With the scent of the Baker House Mansion, it enhances the horrifying experience – especially when playing in VR. This official Capcom product is made in the UK, has an SRP of £10/€12/$14 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.
