Capcom has announced in the latest Famitsu magazine that Resident Evil (GameCube) will be ported to Wii on December 25 in Japan. This time, the game will use the Wii controller, but will also still be compatible with GameCube controller.
Well they did it with 0,1, and 4 so far but only 4 got outside of Japan... wonder if Capcom will bring 0 and 1 over because 4 Wii version did sell well.
RE4 did sell very well but I think thats due in part to the fact that the controls worked so well for it (And that it's a great game, obviously) but how well would the Wii controls work with the old, tank-like control style? There are a lot of areas in RE1 and 0 where you cant exactly see the enemy on-screen so the "point and shoot" style gameplay of RE4 doesn't necessarily work with the old static-backround format. I'd like to see how they would handle this..
Good point on that end. Maybe they spruced it up to work like RE4 and not tank controls..?
Hard to see the conrols working like RE4 in those games though, they were built totally different, they would have to remake the games with the same engine as RE4. That totally changes everything and probably be quite a bit of work, if these are ports I just don't see it happening, unfortunatly.
Hmmm yeah maybe that's why they are only found in Japan lol
lmfao. More reasons to buy a Gamecube over a Wii. Cheaper, funner and less shovelware.
pirates already did that
First day download when it hits PSN.A Megaman 2D game is a perfect game to have in the fall
whoa there wrong article yoshida. as for this port i wish they made a wii game from the ground up with the story inbetween RE1 and RE2.
... wrong article mate. lol!
I don't get it, is the wii backwards compatible or not? Why even bother with this if it is?
Yup it is so they can play the GC version on the Wii if they want to but I guess Capcom thinks it's good for them to make the games yet again but this time with Wii controls as well...
on capcoms part. give me dead rising for ps3, theres a worthwhile port
Is nintendo wii the worst piece of plastic i have owned in my life? even the worst flop in the history of gaming nintendo game cube looks more fun then this useless toy that makes last gen. games unplayable thanks the the stupid wii gimmick.
i second that
I am not sure what the need is to port the GCN version to the Wii is if they control the same ? I mean the Wii already plays GCN titles and if there is no change to the controls whats the point ? Do you think that there are that many more people playing Wii that have not had the chance to play the GCN version ? If the controls are Wii-worked then I would give it a try but other wise I already have the GCN version. what are your thoughts ?
well i definitly got resident evil 4 for wii because it had the stuff the ps2 version has plus little bit more so i sold the gamecube version and i will probably do the same for this if they ever release it for wii i will sell the gamecube version and buy the wii version so i can use the wii controls which are fun and re 4 proved that though i know its not gonna be the same experince but that does not matter and if i feel like doing it gamecube style i will use a gamecube controller
what about resident evil 5? port that. move forward. make something new please.
I wish that instead of making a port, Capcom should make a new Resident Evil game for the Wii. Actually, I'd be happy to be able to play Resident Evil 5.
id take any new resident evil game made for wii instead of the gc port of re either way i will take both just because im a fan of resident evil series heck i even swore to my self id buy re 5 for wii if it came for that system just to complete the collection even when i aready planed to get it for ps3 first which one of my reasons for purchasing a ps3 so can't break my own promise.
I'm getting tired of capcom trying to make a quick buck by rehashing old games on new systems. Why cant the make an original games instead. It worked on the GC (RE4) and looked what happened.
Wii as more games than pse does.
And gamecube version will still be better
They are milking that old cow but I guess it's because people buy its milk... It sure is tasty! =)
