Resident Evil 4 for Wii confirmed

IGN is reporting that Famitsu is reporting that Resident Evil 4* is coming out for Wii in Japan on May 31st, 2007. While Capcom re-releases Resident Evil titles more often than George Lucas milks Star Wars home video releases, it’s not really a surprise that this title is scheduled for the REmake treatment.

From the IGN article:

The Wiimote is used to aim a targeting cursor in order to target and fire at your enemies. To reload, you hold down on the B trigger and shake the Wiimote. In case you were wondering, the built-in speaker is being programmed with a reload sound effect.

Okay, sold! Do you look forward to RE4 on Wii? If so, why?

*It will be titled “Biohazard 4 Wii Edition” in Japan
