We know already discovered Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Today, Capcom USA confirmed it is heading stateside this winter and provided a few more details. Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is based on Resident Evil 2 and is an on-rail shooter. Players take control of Leon and Claire as they revisit key moments from the history of the series. New for the Darkside Chronicles is an evade system which uses the Wii remote during combat.
Capcom also had a change of heart about the Gamecube Resident Evil ports. Revised versions of Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero will be released on the Wii in North America this year under Resident Evil Classics branding for $29.99 each. Of course, you could grab the Gamecube discs and play those on the Wii. The difference? The Resident Evil Classics games have Wii Remote controls. Capcom notes they have a “line” of “some of the greatest games in the Resident Evil franchise”. Two games could be considered a line, but that would be a small line up.
Do you think Capcom is developing more Resident Evil ports? Before you answer take a glance at the made for Wii game Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.
Update: Here is a trailer for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.
