Resident Evil 5 Wii boxart

It's amazing what a fan will do when they really want a game to come to the Wii. This looks pretty good, but of course the info on the back of the box is just speculation at this point. Capcom has recognized the demand for this game on the Wii but nothing has been announced yet as to when/if RE5 will come to the Wii. Do they really need to think about it that much?

Yes you would think that...hopefully Capcom thinks the same.

Resi 4: Wii and UC didn't sell that well... I doubt Wii will get a version Resi 5 just because there isn't a PS2 version

RE4 for the Wii didn't sell well you say? 1.5 million isn't good?

it'd be bliss to have RE5 on wii. Hopefully a GOOD port.
What sucks from ps2 ports is that they just port games directly (barely more than a recompile), so it's ps2 poly count, ps2 textures, etc. With any luck, a port from PS3/X360 will end up way better.

Actually; VGChartz.com has Resident Evil 4 Wii at 1.60 million while the GC is at 1.66 million. Considering that RE4 Wii is a direct port with Wii Remote features added; that is mightly impressive even against the higher selling PS2 version. It got me thinking; if an excellent port can deliver near what the original did, imagine what an excellent original game might be able to do.

As for RE: UC; it is at one million units shipped and expected to sell as much within a month or two.

The fact that,after all this time Capcom still hasn't said anything about Resident Evil 5 being for the wii is a bit of a mixed bag.On one hand they could be keeping quiet about it to pleasantly surprise us later,or they don't plan on being loyal to the wii owners(despite our loyalty toward them)at all and just giving us another port or spin-off.

I mean come on CAPCOM think a lil bit... How much money did you make off RE4 and Umbrella Chronicles for Wii? A ton. Yes there whould defintly be a RE5 Wii edition. I mean there is over 2,000 petitions for the to transport it for wii. Let's do the math. Let's Bring RE5 to the wii!!!! Oh and All of the Resident Evil games that ported over to the wii have done well 2 gotta bring it to the Wii CAPCOM!

Exactly nintendos got the complete series so if RE5 is the origins of the virus, its the most important title, just picture a RE5 game with sightly lower graphics.

why would RE4 sell good on wii when its been out for YEARS on other systems!!! only hardcore gamers would RE-buy it a THIRD time!
hehe, I re bought it and loved it even more with its way better controls! RE belongs on a damn Nintendo system.

Why would they not think of putting RE:5 on the wii? I mean they have to be crazy not to put it on the system; with the selling of all the resident evil games and posters, and items such as the chainsaw for the replacement of the gamecube controller, then I think that they should call it to come out? And it would be a whole new experience for all of us, and it follows the story somewhat with the end scenes of Umbrella Chronicles.
