Capcom’s Wii Surprise Is Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

resdc Don’t fret too much about Resident Evil 5 not coming to the Wii. Capcom said they had an announcement to make at their Resident Evil 5 launch event about the Wii which Famitsu sort of spoiled.


The game in question is Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Details are scarce from the scan, but it says this is a follow up to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Also, the genre is listed as shooting and it supports 1-2 players. I think we know what to expect when Capcom and Cavia, the developer of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, team up. Ready for more rail shooting with Leon and Claire?

    Ugh, I’ll pass. Another spin-off? Between this and the Dead Space rail shooter, I’m not too excited.

  • Mazen

    I hope they focus in making good story in this with great cut scenes the first one was kinda lacking in that department. I think next year they will release RE5 on Wii with RE4 modified engine.

  • I’ll stick to Dead Space: Extraction and Sin & Punishment 2 for my rail-shooting this year.

  • Essh, while Umbrella chronicles wasn’t too bad.I was hoping for RE2 remake (only one I haven’t played) or a remake of the playable degeneration game on phones.
    Sad Geoff is sad.

  • ECM

    I can’t wait. I loved UC and I’ve been waiting for this announcement for a very, very long time!

  • Beam me up, Scotty. I just want them to improve the shooting to the zombie head function since it was tricky to do in UC.

  • BlackFreefall

    And here I thought thaty Capcom is going to remake Code Veronica. I didn’t like the Umbrella Chronicle so I may not even get this.

    Famitsu’s suddenly picked up a nasty habit of spoiling surprises lately!

    • Yeah! Well sort of! These are early Famitsu scans from Friday’s issue so it’s not 100% their fault.

  • EvilAkito

    This is exactly what I was expecting, so I can’t say that I’m disappointed or anything. Umbrella Chronicles was an alright game, and it makes sense that they would create a sequel that covered Leon and Claire’s side of the story.

    Damn…I Think this is some kinda-of-conspiracy to make everyone know every detail of the RE plot to make some people understand the 5 xD,that or they are just running out of ideas.

    PD:I Know the whole convoluted plot!so i really wouldn´t have much interest in having this or UC…if I had a Wii xD.

  • Im fine with this. Umbrella Chronicles was fun, so I expect this to be also.
