Awesome! Plus they are bring their Wii production to 6 games. Every little helps and if they see their games can sell and sell well on the Wii then that's all good news. So Capcom is great at making 360 and Wii games.. now for them to make a killer PS3 game and they should be sound as a pound.

I hope they bring new games to Wii, RE4 is great and all.. its too bad they think Wii owners need a dumbed down re in the form of umbrella chronicles.. RE4 selling so well on Wii should be an indication that Wii owners can handle a real game. Oh and Zack and Wiki looks awsome by the way.
