Resident Evil 5 - NOT on Wii

With work now wrapped up on the PS3 and 360 instalment, Resident Evil 5 producer Masachika Kawata has told us he wants to make a brand new Resi game for Wii.

Thanks to the magic of translation, Kawata-san hinted to Eurogamer TV that Nintendo fans shouldn't despair that their console isn't powerful enough to handle the high-def horror of number five.

"Personally I would like to create something on Wii in the Resident Evil family," he revealed. "At the moment we don't know and have just been working on RE5, so watch this space."

Fantastic news for Wii fans, it's clear that RE5 had much higher graphical aspirations and understandably isn't on Wii. Capcom started work on RE5 over 5 years ago and could never of dreamed how popular Wii would be, perhaps something they now regret, but something they can easily fix, RE 6 for Wii anyone?

Don't forget, Resident Evil 5 is out next month on "the other consoles", even we, Nintendo Life, suggest you buy it.
