Resident Evil Wii news

"reH brings you another exclusive, voice actress Tara Platt is to voice Jill Valentine in the upcoming RE:Wii game. She confirmed to us that the game will feature zombies (or at the least, zombie-like enemies) and plant creatures, as well as a wide array of weaponry. The fact that Ms. Platt was aware of the weapons in the game infers that she is voicing a playable character and is not just doing a cameo. Jill being the main character increases the likelihood of seeing Carlos or Barry turn up as well."

Also from Gamespot's forum:

Read this from a games magazine in HK today - its called Biohazard : Umbrella Corp Chronicles and fills in the story on Umbrella before and leading to BH4. Gameplay is a mix between using the Wiimote as a light gun and BH4 style elements e.g. action buttons pressing X for a dramatic scene. It features scenarios from BH1 (museum), BH2 (police station), BH3 (raccoon city), BHCV and BH4 (village) and ties in the gaps especially BHCV and BH4. Characters include Chris/Claire, Leon / Ada, Jill / Carlos, Rebecca, Hunk and Wesker . There are two gameplay modes - scenario mode and arcade mode. Proper announcement to be made by Capcom at TGS

While its disappointing that Resident Evil 5 is not in development right now for Wii, it is good news that we will be getting a RE game that will have a good place in the Resident Evil story and not just a tacky add-on game. The second news part is not confirmed but I like the chances of it coming true. The actress that plays Jill is confirmed so its looking good regardless.

I'm glad this game takes place before Biohazard 4 (I prefer this name because it makes more sense than "Resident Evil") because I've always wondered what happened to the Umbrella Corporation.

Very true, I hope it fills the holes in between the Code: Veronica and RE4. I actually forget the order its supposed to be in. They went all over the place with Resident Evil 0 and then Resident Evil 3 was not even taking place after Resident Evil 2. So if this new game can clear some of that stuff up I'd like to see it.

Biohazard, if you know the plot or order of the games better than me then by all means let me know. Either way I'm excited to play this game if it uses the same perspective as Resident Evil 4, only with Wii-mote control. Sounds good so far.

I've lost touch with the franchise until Biohazard 4, so I'm not really going to help with the story. Sorry.
