Earlier on in the week we reported on the controller options that will be available to players in the upcoming Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations. It turns out the game will feature off-screen play and will also support the Pro Controller.

However, those hoping for the ability to play with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk — as you could do in Resident Evil 4 on Wii — will be disappointed, as the dynamic duo are not being supported.

Here's what Capcom’s Mike Lumm wrote on the Capcom Unity forums:

Unfortunately [Revelations] is only supported by the Wii-U gamepad at the moment. We’re doing what we can to get the new classic controller compatibility, but the game’s not setup to track motions from the wii-remote at this time.

Saying "at this time" is always going to leave people speculating that a patch or upgrade will arrive in the future, but as of right now Wii Remote and Nunchuk support isn't going to happen.

Are you a little disappointed you won't be able to wield the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in Resident Evil: Revelations? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
