Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles for Wii Ships Today

Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games,
today announced that Resident Evil®: The Darkside Chronicles is now
shipping to all North American retailers for Wii™. The latest
installment in the Resident Evil® franchise, Resident Evil: The
Darkside Chronicles is a follow up to the successful Resident Evil®:
The Umbrella Chronicles that took the series’ infamous characters and
storylines and turned the gameplay on its side with new on-rails arcade
shooter gameplay. Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles takes this
gameplay to a whole new level in terror as the camera now mimics the
first person view creating a more dramatic and immersive horror

The addition of a full 2-player co-op experience
only adds to the game’s level of depth, as players can now shoot
zombies with their friends throughout the game. Resident Evil: The
Darkside Chronicles is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and has a
suggested retail price of $49.99 at all major retailers across North


Resident Evil: The
Darkside Chronicles sends a full cast of characters into a world where
the lines between good and evil are blurred and the potential to go to
the dark side lies within everyone. Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield,
Jack Krauser, Steve Burnside, and Chris Redfield all play their part in
an engrossing storyline that will fill in the missing pieces from
Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. This new chapter in the
Resident Evil series retraces the terrifying ordeals of Resident Evil
2 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica, but this time from an all-new
perspective. A vibrant new South America part of the story pairs Jack
Krauser with Leon S. Kennedy as they hunt down Javier Hidalgo, a drug
lord connected to the Umbrella Corporation.

The game’s on-rail,
arcade shooter gameplay first featured in Resident Evil: The Umbrella
Chronicles, has been radically upgraded in Resident Evil: The Darkside
Chronicles. To create a more terrifying and cinematic experience, the
camera mimics the first person point of view and at times, zombies
surround players so they must rely on each other to advance. Combined
with an eerie soundtrack and a new graphics engine utilizing
state-of-the-art technology, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
delivers the most fun and accessible horror game on Wii yet.
