If you’re a Wii U owner looking to play some Resident Evil titles on your console, you might be pleased to learn that Capcom has announced that they will be bringing Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition onto the Wii U. For those unfamiliar, Resident Evil 4 was originally released in 2005, with the Wii version launching in 2007.
It seems that many gamers have considered the Wii version of the game to be one of the better versions, if not the best version of the game due to the use of the Wii’s unique controls. So with the Wii U, gamers who did not get a chance to play it on the Wii, or gamers who want to replay it on their Wii U will now have a chance of doing so.
However it should be noted that this is more or less a direct port of the Wii version. This means that if you were hoping for upgraded graphics, like from Resident Evil 4 HD or Ultimate HD, you would be out of luck. Given that the game is 8 years old, safe to say that the graphics will look a bit dated.
The game is expected to be released on the 29th of October through the Nintendo eShop. It will be sold for £17.99, but gamers who purchase it before the 5th of November will get a 25% discount. It should also be noted that it will only be released in Europe with no mention of a North American release, at least not for now.
