In an interview with CVG, Capcom producer Masachika Kawata and designer Kenji Matsuura said that they would love to make a Resident Evil for Wii U. While this does not mean there will be a Resident Evil for Wii U, at least there is a chance since Matsuura and Kawata are willing to make it.
Matsuura stated, “As a game designer, when I see Wii U, my first thoughts are: ‘Oh wow, I could do this or that, or what would happen if I try to make a game like X,Y or Z.’ My motivation instantly goes through the roof and I want to try a lot of interesting new things. Nothing’s been decided specifically for Resident Evil but it certainly would be interesting.”
Kawata’s thoughts on the matter were, “Whether or not we actually will develop a Resident Evil title for Wii U, we’ll put that aside as obviously I don’t know yet. But for me personally, I’d love to do just that. It’s a very, very interesting piece of hardware. Whenever I see new game machines and their new possibilities get into my head, the ideas just start flowing. I’d absolutely love to make a Resident Evil on it. I really love the idea of being able to play the game even if my wife or my kids come and steal the TV. That’s great, brilliant.”
Okay, fans! Let’s start the rumor wheel! What would you all like to see, if you really want a Resident Evil game for Wii U? Perhaps Resident Evil 6, or maybe another side game? Who do you want to see in it? I would not mind seeing Leon Kennedy return to the main games. Resident Evil in HD would be brilliant, if it had gameplay like in the fourth installment. What do you all think?
