From Kotaku (http://kotaku.com/361238/capcom-porting-another-gamecube-resident-evil-to-bc-wii)

For third party publishers, Capcom's done alright on the Wii. The Resident Evil 4 port did good business for them even if the GameCube version was already playable on the Wii! People just loved the tacked on waggle. That means one thing: More RE ports! This year, Capcom is bringing Resident Evil Zero to the Nintendo Wii. That's right, Capcom is again remaking a GameCube original with waggle. Think about it: Another waggle remake of a backwards compatible GC remake that you can already play on the Wii. Knowing Capcom, don't be surprised if they wagglize every single RE game. Be sad.

Boy, anyone who buys it is going to get a mean surprise when they figure out the control scheme. (Although frankly, I prefer it)

It's not just a rumor. It's true. Here's the Famitsu scan:

I really don't see the point in this. I know Capcom is fond of porting old games to new systems, but this is just ridiculous. Also, why port one of the least liked games in the series to the Wii? If they had to port something, why not the REmake?

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they did port the REmake after this.

EDIT: I probably should have clicked the Kotaku link before posting the scan again. Oh well.

Well at least it's love for RE0...
They maybe "testing the waters" before releasing anything they have planned for the other fan favourites...
And you know its just to keep us waiting until RE5 is out
Still... remaking Gamecube games on Wii is a 'lil silly... Just give us a NEW game already!!

Ugh.

No thanks, I already own 3 versions of Resident evil 1.

Maybe they should, oh I don't know, put out some new games.

Dude, they've been "testing the waters" since they released RE4: Wii Edition.

Also what was the point of Umbrella Chronicles if they're just going to release the full versions of the games it covered? Ugh.

I can just easily pop my GCN disc into my Wii and it would be no different...WHY NO LOVE FOR RE2 REMAKE WITH RE4 STYLE PLAY? =(

I doubt I'll get it. I already have it for the GameCube. I like how they're keeping its original style and not remaking it into the RE4 gameplay.

Looks like it's a Japan-only title. For now, anyway.

That says to me that this really will be a straight port with no new content whatsoever, aside from the controls. Otherwise, they'd most likely be bringing it over to the US and Europe.

this is a complete and utter waste of time. i almost wonder if capcom is looking for an excuse to say the RE series doesn't sell on the wii. they've already sold a million RE 4 and about a million RE:UC (why, oh god why, did you people buy that game?)

The fact they're so quick to denounce the game coming outside japan is a pretty strong hint they dont care about the title, its a really sleazy dirty port, and they (hopefully) know damn well nobody will give two shits about a straight port of a 10-20 GC game that already plays fine on the damn system anyways!

They would do better making up some bull story and throwing in random characters, another "Gaiden" if you will.

They should have done this to RE 3 instead, if at all.

God Capcom is being pathetic lately.


On a similar note: WHERE THE HELL IS BREATH OF FIRE VI!?

Breath of Fire V killed it.

I think we all know (or should know) Capcom's true strengths. As long as the Street Fighter franchise is a flagship title for the worldwide Evo2k competition (this means hundreds of thousands of consumers) and the movie rights to Resident evil are raking in 10's of millions of uncut profit, they can afford to keep on experimenting. People still play Street Fighter II Turbo professionally, as well as the 8-year-old Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. Capcom is alive and well. Breath of Fire V flopped. A few RE's flopped. But hey, they've already reached cult status. Devil May Cry has people foaming at the mouth.

Capcom's stock value as of yesterday's close: $28.00
Square Enix's as of yesterday's close: $29.50

For good measure and/or extra perspective. :crest:
