Resident Evil 5 Not A 360 Exclusive 26

Posted by Zonk
from the yet dept.
Next Generation reports that recent rumours about the exclusivity of Resident Evil 5 are incorrect. So says Capcom, anyway, trying clear up its relationship with Microsoft. The two companies have become increasingly 'friendly', with titles like Dead Rising and Lost Planet given the 360 some popular exclusive titles already. From the article: "'Just to be clear, this is a multiplatform simultaneous launch on PS3 and Xbox 360.' ... The status of Resident Evil 5 has been clouded in mystery over the past several months. The game was featured at Microsoft's X05 event and at E3 2005, but it didn't make an appearance at this year's E3 in May, or at Tokyo Game Show 2006 this month."

    Resident Evil Wii is supposed to be released about the same time, and will be similar, but different, and exclusive to the Wii.

    The Wii is getting it's own exclusive Biohazard game called Biohazard: Umbrella Chronicles. It spans the first four titles, and you are able to play as many of the series most iconic characters (Leon, Jill, Hunk, Wesker, Ada and more..). The mechanics are supposed to be similar to Biohazard 4's over the shoulder view, but the Wiimote will be used to aim your weapon.

    Not a whole lot is known about the game because it was only recently announced. One thing that has been mentioned is that each character will have two weapons each, like the Mercanaries game from Biohazard 4 (which will be returning). Jill has a pistol and rocket launcher, Leon a Pistol (Red 9 I hope) and shotgun, and Ada the TMP and rifle.

    There was a post about it on The Magic Box maybe a month ago. No screenshots yet either.

    The game will be called Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, and will take place in four different chapters. The four chapters will take you through previous RE titles, including RE1's mansion, RE2's police station, RE3's Raccoon City, and RE4's village. Each chapter will have two playable characters, with the ability to unlock more.

    Gameplay wise, it is reportedly a lot like RE4, with the Wiimote triggering the over-the-shoulder view, and firing being done with the nunchuck controller. As for the story, expect it to tie up some of the loose ends that have been the topics of message board conversations over the years. Maybe we'll finally know for sure what broke out of that tube in the RE2 lab...


    I believe all the Release Dates [wikipedia.org] are still TBA.
