Nintendo Wii: Capcom Now Believe Resident Evil 5 Is Possible On Wii


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.”

  1. Great to see Capcom finally come around. I just bought this game for my PS3. Looks like I’m going to have to make another purchase. Keep it real Capcom.

  2. Yes finally!!! I’ve been waiting for capcom to bring RE5 to the Wii. Thank you capcom and others are very happy with your decisions to bring it to the Wii.

  3. thank god i can finaly play this chapter of the residente vil series thanks capcom i knew you would do this :) :) :)

    1. no because wiis been pushed around by the 360 and ps3 and it deserves an excluive like darkside crhonicles

  4. I don’t think you guys read it properly. They said its ‘possible’ not were going to make a Wii version. I’m sure they could do a port to any game if they really tried but like Sonic unleashed for Wii. Don’t expect the original quality. If this dose happen I picture it to look like Resident Evil 4 or a little better but good luck though.

  5. Im glad its possible but now if they decide to make when is it coming out. Could be a year or two before they even start making it.

  6. Come on cacom You gave us a remake of re4 but you didnt give us the new re5? I was pissed but please make it before the wii U comes out. I know for a FACT that if you dont remake for wii youll probably remake it for wii U.
