One of Capcom's marketing men has dropped a big hint that Resident Evil may be on its way to Nintendo Wii again.

Speaking to Joystiq at a Canadian press event, associate product marketing manager Matt Dahlgren teased: "[Resident Evil 5] was made for the Xbox 360 and PS3. That being said, Nintendo Wii fans will be very happy very soon."

Meanwhile, in an unrelated post on the Capcom-Unity blog (thanks vg247), the publisher said to expect "new game announcements" at its San Francisco launch party on 12th March.

Capcom has previously said that it would like to return to Nintendo Wii following the success of Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.

Speaking to Eurogamer TV last month, producer Masachika Kawata said: "Personally I would like to create something on Wii in the Resident Evil family. At the moment we don't know and have just been working on Resident Evil 5, so watch this space."
