Out Today - Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles

Posted by Anthony Dickens

The first zombie-fest Wii Zapper action is released today in the US, later this month in Europe.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is a brand new game in the Resident Evil franchise, with familiar locales from the entire series, created specifically for the unique characteristics of the Wii console. This action/shooter hybrid reveals the back story behind the fall of the Umbrella Corporation by exploring locations from Resident Evil 0, 1, 2 and 3 as well as new never-before-seen locations, such as Umbrella’s stronghold. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles combines first-person, light-gun style combat with interactive pathways, multiple weapons and new enemies to create an entirely new Resident Evil experience that could only be delivered on the Wii. The game includes a two-player co-op mode and support for the Wii Zapper™ for even more intense light-gun style shooting action.

I've been looking forward to getting my hands on the Wii Zapper, one thing I love is gun games.. our copy of the game is in the post along with a Wii Zapper so prepare for a full review soon!

Yesterday at Sega HQ, we talked briefly about Ghost Squad, how its slightly been modified on the Wii.. another interesting Wii Zapper game.. which led me to ask a few questions about House of the Dead 4, no real info extracted from Sega, but I'm thinking it wouldn't be a surprise if we saw a Wii release sometime next year... here's hoping!

Yeah, pretty sure there are bundled available in the US, selling the unit together with the game.

I thought this was gonna turn out rubbish but it's been getting some decent reviews around the web.

May get it eventually, coop is always a blast in rail shooters. Probably won't be getting the zapper or using it if it's bundled, never liked the look of the thing.

I tried it at a friends, the visuals are really good but the action is very slow, ghost Squad is more exiting
