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.
