Capcom’s Matt Dahlgren has told gaming press that he believes it will be possible to port Resident Evil 5 onto the Nintendo Wii after developers at Capcom Japan witnessed the miraculous work the team have done with Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles.
“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.”
