    I don't think it matters, considering RE4 Wii sold well despite it selling well on GameCube too.

    I enjoyed Umbrella Chronicles but I am hoping for something a little bit different this time around.

    But, RE4 on Wii isn't a downgrade, just like the Metroid Prime Wii port isn't a downgrade. However, RE5 on Wii would be a downgrade. So, any Wii owner with a PS3 or 360 (which there seem to be a LOT of) would probably stick with those versions. I think part of why RE4 sold well on Wii was also due to Wii's lack of mature games at that point.

    Yeah, that's true. It really seems that Wii owners tend to have another next-gen console and that they only get Wii exclusive games for Wii and that's about it. RE5 for the Wii would be a dumb move on Capcom's part.

    Going to be a rails shooter..

    March 11, 2009 - As reported earlier here at IGN Wii, Capcom's big Resident Evil surprise for Wii owners turned out to be Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles, a sequel to the gun shooting game Umbrella Chronicles. Since posting that initial report, more details on the game have come our way from Famitsu.

    Darkside Chronicles takes place in Resident Evil 2's Racoon City. It's September 29, 1998, and the city has turned to hell due to the effects of the T-virus. Players take control of Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy to deal with the undead in Umbrella Chronicles forced scrolling style.

    LMAO.

    I got a feeling it won't sell as well as its predecessor, with Dead Space: Extraction and Sin & Punishment 2 coming out, too -- two likely to be better games.

    I'm stick of this focus on light gun/on rails shooters with Wii. RE4 sold extremely so obviously that control scheme works on Wii why not improve it with a new Wii RE adventure game. Theres games are becoming too much.

    RE: UC
    RE: DC
    HotD 2&3
    HotD OK
    Target Terror
    Ghost Squad
    Dead Space Extraction

    Come on enough already

    Why not House of The Dead the FPS where you actually control your guy
    Why not a RE4 style RE ,and Dead Space

    "Pushing its limits?" Try "breaking its back."

    It's not possible

    I will probably still end up renting or buying this game, I just can't get enough Resident Evil.

    I enjoyed Umbrella Chronicles and this is said to be different and darker so I like the sounds of that. I will get this on Wii and then RE5 on 360 looks like.

    Well House of the Dead has never been an FPS, so I wouldn't expect them to do that. But I like the abundance of Light Gun Shooters on Wii, I think developers have been wanting to make light gun games for home consoles for a while but didn't want to take the "Time Crisis" route and pack in an expensive gun controller with it. The Wii allows developers to make light gun games without any extra pack in. The dead space Rail shooter looks interesting, and HOTD: Overkill is a must buy. I love the light gun shooters keep em' coming.

    *Note to all developers* Please include Wi-Fi leaderboards in all Light Gun games...it really gives it that true arcade feel. (thank you Ghost Squad)

    Looks like they are going to localize the Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil wiimakes as well.

    No, my friend I'm not a kid!!
    I see the UC:DarkSide screenshoots and thankfully are amazing!!
    They updated the RE Remake graphics and sure they adapted it to the MTFramework engine, now looks cristal clear graphics. Good step foward Capcom!!
    I think Capcom experimented with some engines to match the perfect fit for Wii graphics, first with railshooters and later with third person shooters. That is why I hope RE5 coming next year for Wii!!
    Today the AMD CEO prices the Wii's Hollywood GPU already dispached 50 millions chips and he say that only, repeat only the developers reached the 40% of the total horsepower that the GPU can perform (probably HV). So is more room to explore inside the hook Wii's hardware!!
    That's complete posible!!
    If you don't care check the game's screenshoots, I really don't see the difference between this game and a high quality xbox360 game in the graphics department frankly!!

    The screens dont look that great~

    The character models look nice and the lighting is cool. But a lot of the background textures look like crap~ it looks just as good as the remakes that were on the cube....
