The Horror Geek presents: Resident Evil Zero Gamescon footage

Mike Bracken's picture

I have to be honest, this Wii version of Resident Evil Zero footage didn't exactly blow me away. It's been a long time since I played Resident Evil Zero on the GameCube, but I'd be hard pressed to spot any kind of difference between this version and the original. I kept thinking "how do I even know this trailer is new? They could have taken one from the GameCube release years ago and slapped a Wii logo on it and called it a day…"

That being said, I'm probably not the target audience for this title. Resident Evil Zero for the Wii seems to be aiming at folks who didn't have a GameCube, or just never got around to playing this game back in the day. That's cool—I guess. The title is set to sell at a reduced rated (30 bucks) and will feature Wii-mote controls. I'm not sure how that's going to work with the traditionally clunky Resident Evil interface, but I guess we'll all find out eventually.

There's still no official release date for this game, but it is supposed to be available before the end of the year.

No Difference

Yeah, the only difference between this version and the Gamecube one is the controls. But alot of people didn't pick this up because RE4 was on the way and, well, which one would you pick? This allows Capcom to at least reach a larger audience that seems hell bent on buying anything with Resident Evil on it.
