Wii exclusive Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles has been confirmed for a UK and US release this winter.

As reported yesterday, it's an on-rails shooter with a storyline based around Resident Evil 2. Leon S. Kenney and Claire Redfield will star, and a two-player co-op mode is promised. The Darkside Chronicles will also feature a new Evade system to help you when fighting enemies.

In addition, Capcom announced plans to bring GameCube titles Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero to Wii under the "Classics" banner. Both have been redesigned to suit the Wii remote and are set to launch this year, priced at US 29.99 in the States. The European price has yet to be announced.
