Nintendo has stepped up to distribute the forthcoming Resident Evil titles for Wii.

Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition will be released on 29th June, with Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles simply down for a 2007 release.

Nintendo has some experience here of course, having handled the 2005 release of Resident Evil 4 for GameCube. And having, you know, been a software publisher for the best part of three decades.

What can you expect from the two games? Well, Resi 4 will build on its phenomenal basics with new Wii controls that allow players to wield the knife with the Wiimote as they explore with the Nunchuk. You'll also find the Ada Wong story elements added to the PlayStation 2 release of the game installed in the Wii Edition.

Umbrella Chronicles, meanwhile, is a light-gun-style game that ploughs further into the murky history of the Umbrella Corporation, as players blast their way through locations from Resident Evils 0, 1, 2 and 3 as well as some new ones.

We had a go on both games last week, so you can expect some thoughts soon. In the meantime, er, do a dance?
