NEWS: 02.09.07 750K copies of RE4 Wii Edition have been shipped! [Wii]

The demand for Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition at retail stores is so great, that it has motivated Capcom to ship 750,000 copies of the game to retailers all over the world.

This is quite significant, if we consider that originally Capcom expected Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition to sell 420,000 copies by the end of the current fiscal year. That has changed dramatically after it was known that sales of the Wii Edition had already broken with sales expectations within 3 months since it was release.

Hopefully, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles will enjoy a similar reception when it ships later this year.

NEWS: 26.07.07 Resident Evil 5: latest Updates! [XBOX360/PS3]

Here's a brief summary of what we known so far about Resident Evil 5.

1.- It's been confirmed that the main character is Chris Redfield.

2.- The game is set in the year 2008 and Chris is currently working for an agency called the BSAA.

3.- RE5's gameplay will be based on RE4's. That includes the shooting mechanics and 3rd person perspective. However, new gameplay elements will be added to the mix. Like the effect that the searing heat will have on Chris. The player will need to provide his character with some refreshments in order to avoid body dehydration. If no fluid supply is found, the main character's mind will play tricks on him and he will see things that are not real.

4.- Aside from Chris, the player will be able to control an important female character. No info was given as to the identity of this character. However, most RE fans think that the mystery girl is none other than Sherry Birkin, the daughter of William Birkin.

5.- The generic enemies featured in RE5 are very similar to RE4's parasite infested Ganados. They are very human looking, attack in groups and employ a variety of weapons (pitchforks, axes, hatchets, etc.). It should be mentioned that these new enemies have better A.I. and are far more agressive than Ganados.

6.- Some weapons that the player will be able to use, include a machete, a regular handgun, a shotgun and assault rifle.

7.- According to director Takeuchi, the game will be released no later than 2010. However, Capcom expects the game to be released in 2008 or in the first months of 2009.

8.- During an interview, Keiji Inafune confirmed that RE series creator, Shinji Mikami, is not involved in any way with the RE5 project.

NEWS: 13.07.07 RE4 Wii Edition sales exceed expectations! [Wii]

Capcom Chief Financial Officer Kazuhiko Abe recently revealed that he expects sales of Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition to exceed the target of 420,000 units for the current business year (up until March 08), given the positive response from gamers and press alike.

That's good news since the Kawata (responsible for the port and RE:UC) mentioned recently that if RE4 Wii Edition and UC do well on the Wii, we can expect more games from the series on Wii. He's actually interested in making remakes of the old games.

NEWS: 11.07.07 New E3 2007 Resident Evil 5 trailers! [XBOX360/PS3]

At the recent press conferences held by Microsoft and Sony in Southern California, fragments of the new Resident Evil 5 trailer were unveiled.

The new trailer shows scenes where the protagonist (rumored to be Chris Redfield), investigates a settlement located in what appears to be Africa. The place is heavily populated by normal looking residents. However, at one point of the video, the natives begin to attack the hero.

It is not known if these natives are suppose to be the main generic enemies to be included in RE5. Such enemies would explain scenes from the previous trailer, where several individuals are seen running at top speed. They certainly don't look like typical zombies.

Masachika Kawata, the man responsible for the RE4 port for the Wii and also the upcoming The Umbrella Chronicles, is considering making new remakes of past Resident Evil games for Nintendo's popular game console.

He stated that in a recent interview for french publication, Jeux France.

NEWS: 06.07.07 New Japanese The Umbrella Chronicles trailer! [Wii]

The third official video for this game is out. The new video shows scenes from RE0, RE1 and RE3. On this new trailer you can listen to the voice acting a lot more.

The video also shows how the co-op option will work. Both players shoot at the screen at the same time. But it seems that it only happens when the characters are being attacked. When they move around in corridors, labs or anywhere else, one player is always the lead and the other one just follows behind.

To watch the new video, visit the site at: www.capcom.co.jp/bio_uc and once there, click the second button included in the page's menu. Then activate the button that reads: "PV Vol.3 2m18s. 15.9 MB".
