Capcom believes Resident Evil 5 is "Possible" on Wii

For awhile Capcom said that Resident Evil 5 was not technically possible on the Wii. But according to the Product Manager for Resident Evil: The Dark Side Chronicles, Matt Dahlgren, Capcom has had a change of heart.

At Resident Evil 5’s launch it was announced that a Wii version was not technically possible. But after some of the work that Cavia has done (with Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles), the producers of Resident Evil 5 over in Japan now think it is possible. Some of the light effects in the South America stage are pretty incredible. Whether it is going to come, I don’t know the answer to that question. But, it has been said that now at least it is possible.

So Wii owners who missed out the latest entry in the Resident Evil franchise may get their shot at Resident Evil 5. If it did come though it will probably have to cut back in some areas. Hopefully it wouldn’t have to cut back as much as Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop had to.

  1. It would be neat, but they’d have to do it right. The problem with Chop Til You Drop was that they lazily tried a direct port (Which destroyed just about everything in the game) and then called it done. I’d rather see them make it from scratch specifically designed for the Wii.
