Wii owners, get ready for "Resident Evil"

Capcom officially confirmed that the Resident Evil video game franchise will be coming to the Nintendo Wii, with Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. "Resident Evil has become one of the premier franchies in the games industry, with more than 30 million RE games sold around the world," said Jack Symon, director or product marketing for Capcom.

I think the functionality of the Wii controller makes Nintendo's next-generation console the ideal platform for the two new Resident Evil games.  It should be an interesting experience to be play RE on the Wii.

Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition is scheduled to be released on May 31 in Japan, but Capcom has not announced a U.S. release date -- the game will most likely be released sometime this summer.

The Umbrella Chronicles will be the Wii's first installment of the RE series, which will specifically revisits the location of the first three Resident Evil video games.  The game will also provide some more details about the fall of the Umbrella Corporation.

The video games were long expected, so the announcement from Capcom isn't completely shocking. People were also discussing rumors about Capcom and Resident Evil during the Game Developers Conference last month.

Capcom previously promised a PC version of Resident Evil 4, but it has not surfaced yet.
