The latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed that Capcom is planning a Japan-only Wii port of Resident Evil 0 for 2008.
Some outlets have reported the Wii version of Resident Evil 0 will likely be very similar to the 2002 GameCube version, but may feature additional content and, of course, full Wii remote control. Famitsu speculated the game will be played with “one hand,” suggesting Capcom may forego use of the Wii remote’s nunchuck attachment.
Resident Evil 0 would be the second Resident Evil port to hit Wii, as well as Capcom’s third Wii port in little more than a year after Resident Evil 4 and Okami, respectively. In a response to the Famitsu article, Capcom stated “we currently have no plans to bring the Wii version of Resident Evil 0…to either the U.S. or Europe.”
We go way back, Capcom, and you know I love you. But instead of porting old games to Wii, how about some Resident Evil 5?
