Fresh from E3, it's been revealed that Capcom’s classic zombie franchise Resident Evil is headed to the Nintendo Wii in an exclusive title built ground-up for the system’s unique controllers. Not much was revealed, other than just a simple confirmation, but here is the official release:

The Resident Evil series, which began in 1996, has helped to propel the survival horror genre into the mainstream. The series has shipped over 30 million units (as of March 31st, 2006) and continues to entertain fans worldwide.

The intense story and cutting-edge graphics have combined to create a deep gaming world that has even been expanded into non-gaming media such as the Hollywood movie series of Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Apocalypse, each earning over 100 million dollars at the box-office. The most recent game in the series, Resident Evil 4, has been honored with the Award of Excellence at the 9th CESA Game Awards and the Game of the Year Award at the 1st Famitsu Awards, further demonstrating the worldwide recognition of the game's top-notch quality.

The next-generation console Wii is garnering much attention with its groundbreaking new controller. The new Resident Evil game for the console will combine the series' intense gaming experience and atmosphere with the revolutionary control system of the Wii.

As always, Capcom will continue to strive to produce great new game titles and expand its appeal to a broader audience across the globe.

Keep in mind that Resident Evil 5 is also being developed for the PS3 and Xbox 360. We’ll have more information on these titles as they develop, so check back with VGGEN often!
