Famitsu confirms Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and gives new details about Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles.
The community over at the NeoGAF forums put together an interesting thread about the new gaming news revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu. There was a pretty big spread about the Biohazard (Resident Evil) series that included the first information about a Resident Evil 4 remake for Wii.
Firstly, it is coming. It will include the new features that were added to the PS2 version as well as some Wii control additions. Aiming will be done with the pointer while reloading and knife fighting will be done by shaking the remote. Also, based on the scans, it may run natively on widescreen televisions, filling the entire screen, instead of in letterbox like the GameCube version.
On the Umbrella Chronicles front, the game will be an on-rails shooter using the Wii remote pointer to aim. The analog stick on the nunchuck will be used to look around and the player will have to choose a path during certain parts. Several Resident Evil characters will return as well.
NWR is currently looking into further details about the games. If you want to check out the NeoGAF thread, click the source link above.
