There was rumours flying around the interweb over the past month or two that the western release of Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition would be toned down like its Japanese counterpart, a huge blow to fans of the series. However Capcom have now answered, confirming that the game won't be cut or edited.

"RE 4 Wii Edition content in Japan is based on their previous releases, the US version content will be similar to previous releases here (not talking about any of the Wii Edition functions with the controls of course, just about gameplay content)."

Excellent, lock and load! Get your guns ready for the US launch on June 19th, 2007.
