A translation would be most appreciated. I know the Saiban game is Phoenix Wright but what's the Taisen game?

Is this a Action-RTS or the RPG they were talking about a while back?

I loved KUF on the original Xbox, so please be a Action-RTS.

Seems like a spring 2007 release for GS4 gives Capcom USA some pretty good options for the series. They could release the English version of GS3 at the end of 2007 and then put out GS4 in the first half of '08, and it still wouldn't be too out-of-date. (A year from Japanese to English release is a bit much, but certainly not unheard of.)

Good timing. Hope they release GS 3 just before so I'm all caught up

WORD! :D

Though I still won't understand why they would have waited THAT long if this is indeed true...March '07 doesn't seem to coincide with any of the new HnK OVAs coming out and what not...at least, not that I know of...

That's what it says!

Hopefully that list means there are pics of all of them in famitsu. Should clear up what kinda game the Wii RE is.
:O!!!!!!!!

So this might be true?!?!
Basically, the magazine claims to have some inside scoop of the game, which will be announced at Tokyo Game Show:

- The game is named "Biohazard: Umbrella Corp Chronicle"
- Features all characters from BH1, BH2, BH3, and BH4
- Wiimote will be used for lightgun
- Story will fill in the blanks between BH:CV and BH4
- Features mansion from BH1, Raccoon Police Station from BH2
- Based on BH4 system, features QTE similar to BH4, 3rd person perspective
- Features 2 gameplay modes: Scenario mode and Arcade mode
- Scenario mode - Play through the entire story from BH1 to BH4, stage by stage
- Can only choose one type of gun and one type of weapon during a stage (limited ammo)
- Exclusive on Wii

wait so it's basically a lightgun game where each level acts as part of a scenario from one of the Biohazard games? I thought we'd get at least RE4.5

You expected something beyond Gun Survivor with nicer graphics?

I'm more interested in what rpg series that is. Nintendo doesn't really have many rpg franchises so it could be something cool. Plus seeing how they do an rpg on Wii will be interesting.

i thought it'd be pretty easy of Capcom to just re-use the RE4 engine and implement Wii aiming in the RE4 gameplay system, so yes i guess :|

Wing Island? And I dunno what Dog Island or Kororinpa are either.

I wonder about the new RPG... does it say who it's from?

And I guess that Chinese magazine was right about REWii, then. Umbrella Corp Chronicles, spanning RE1 - 4.

I would pass but I love Res Evil so much I will at least check it out, maybe capcom is just making this for lunch window which is not a bad idea, before a tried and try re game comes as a sequel to the Leon story line

The wiimote acts as a lightgun, but then there is this:
- Based on BH4 system, features QTE similar to BH4, 3rd person perspective
I doubt this will be like Gun Survivor with QTE scenes, probably a much more full game if it fills the gaps between RE:CV and RE4. :D

yeah but it's just, stages set up from the way it's written - you select a weapon and get limited ammo, and each level acts as part of a scenario from one of the old Biohazard games.

I'm hestitant to believe a Chinese magazine, but they got the name right...
