This is thriller -- thriller morning!
First revealed via Famitsu
scans, Capcom has officially confirmed the existence of the new Wii Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
-- and confirmed a North American release at the same time! The Darkside Chronicles
is based on the Resident Evil 2
timeline and stars Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield in an Umbrella Chronicles
-style rail shooter with "a more in-depth co-op experience" and a new "Evade system." The Cavia-developed shooter is expected this winter.
In addition, Capcom is localizing the Wii ports of Resident Evil Zero
(which Capcom's US branch previously declined at least twice
) and the Resident Evil remake
(which, as a port of a remake, is basically a zombie
itself now) as a new "Resident Evil
Classics" line for release this year. Both games feature new Wii Remote controls and will sell at a $29.99 price point, just like Nintendo's own ported Gamecube games
for a trailer!
