Resident Evil 5 Game News

Capcom has cleared up mounting confusion about whether Resident Evil will, after all, be coming to the Nintendo Wii, by announcing that it is working on a specific version of the zombie-crunching franchise, rather than a port of Resident Evil 5, for Nintendo's remote-controlled sort-of-next-gen console.

In an interview with Pro-G, Ressie producer Jun Takeuchi seemed to suggest that Resident Evil wouldn't be coming to the Wii (cue much wailing and gnashing of teeth - and not just from the zombies). But fear not: it seems that gremlins got into the translation, and Takeuchi was specifically referring to Resident Evil 5.

Indeed, Capcom has confirmed that while it is developing Resident Evil 5 specifically for Xbox 360 and PS3 -- which means we can expect zombies with fiendishly clever AI and a tasty level of graphical detail -- the Wii will get its own, special version of Resident Evil which will be completely different to RE5. But which, presumably, will transform the Wii-mote into a head-popping shotgun or chainsaw, or whatever - the zombie-mashing possibilities are endless. Still hurrah for Ressie Wii! and we'll of course bring you more news as it shambles out of Capcom's lair.
