Wii to get Resi Evil exclusive

Could arrive before Resi 5.

Capcom has officially confirmed development of a new Resident Evil game, which will be exclusive to Nintendo Wii and could well be hitting stores ahead of the Resident Evil 5 on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Following up on the phenomenal success of Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube, Capcom is understandably showing a little more love for Nintendo, and plans to release a new instalment that takes full advantage of the innovative remote controller.

According to Capcom, the new game will "combine the series' intense gaming experience and atmosphere with the revolutionary control system of the Wii," although exactly how they plan to do that is a mystery at the moment.

No release date or details on where this latest instalment sits in the series have been disclosed so far, but given the recent news that the developers are still sussing out new concepts and graphics engines for Resi 5 on PS3 and Xbox 360, it's possible you won't have to wait quite as long for evil to take up residence in your Wii.
