"March 11, 2009 - Pull out your zappers and get ready to hit the pavement as Capcom, an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announces Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles for WiiTM. The latest title in Capcom's successful motion-based video games for the whole family, Darkside Chronicles recreates the experience of shooting zombies in a vast urban playground where manhole covers double as shields. The all-new compilation allows players to compete against the best zombies in six classic modes, including pin the tail to the zombie, waggle wafflemaker feed a zombie. And the startling pie throwing zombie mode.
Darkside Chronicles takes full advantage of the Wii's capabilities in order to bring these timeless Resident Evil moments from the streets to the living room. Players use the intuitive aiming of the Wii RemoteTM to rule the streets and stake their claim as king of the block. However, just like on the real street, they must dodge obstacles like zombie vomit, fire hydrants and zombie dogs as they try to earn trophies and unlock items such as new outfits, minigames and equipment. The game supports up to two players in both head-to-head or team-based games, while single player mode allows gamers to fully explore the expansive urban environment of a guided first person experience. Darkside Chronicles is a fun, competitive game for players both young and old!"
Gee guys is this the Resident Evil game you were hoping for??? Look Ma, on-rails gameplay! Seriously, this is a horrible announcement by Capcom and an insult to every Wii owning Resident Evil fan. Umbrella Chronicles was enough for a distraction but another game!? Give me a break.....well there is always other franchises to look forward to, like Mad World and The Conduit.
