Capcom unlikely to bring Resi 0 West

US arm turned it down twice.

Capcom US twice turned down the opportunity to bring Resident Evil Zero to Western Wiis.

The GameCube shooter is set to arrive on Wii in Japan next month. When quizzed about possible box art, Capcom US suit Christian Svensson revealed he had lost track of the project after deciding internally not to offer it in other parts of the world.

"Nothing is ever final, but we've been asked twice if we've wanted to bring it Westward and twice we've declined," said Svensson on the Capcom forums.

Zero would have been the second Resident Evil from the GameCube library to be offered on Wii here, after Resident Evil 4 struggled to recapture its original-release applause due to clumsy motion-sensing controls.

Svensson was cagey over the reason why Capcom had twice declined the game, but claimed issues of quality were wide of the mark.

"You're reading too much into it. I know it's a quality port," he said. "As you guys know, our guys do quality work."

Capcom Europe had nothing further to add.
