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.

Glimmer Of Hope For Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom?

Capcom rep says news might come in "a couple weeks."

Japan-exclusive Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom may be 13 companies away from at least a US release, but goshdarnit if Capcom aren't trying.
