Capcom Looking To Port More Games To Wii?

Could we be getting Resident Evil 5: Chop Till You Drop edition?
Let's be honest, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop was a bit of let down. Rather than bringing the zombie-slaying brilliance of the 360 original to the Wii, all the port did was give us less zombies, some pointless waggle and some dodgy visuals.
However, the failure of the game hasn't stopped Capcom from looking at more Wii ports. When asked about the possiblity of a Wii version of Resident Evil 5, the company's Chief Financial Officer Kazuhiko Abe replied:
We have not decided whether we are doing it or not doing it...up until now, after releasing our PS3 and Xbox 360 games, we have brought them to the Wii. Basically, this is the approach we are considering taking.
Quite how RE5 would translate to the less powerful Wii is anyone's guess...but we're not expecting the results to be amazing. However, if the gameplay can be retained then Wii owners might have something to get excited about...assuming it ever actually happens, that is.
