“I’m not afraid at all. I think it’s going to sell. If you look at the previous installment, it sold quite well, and again the Resident Evil brand is incredibly strong, and it’s known throughout the world.” – Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles’ chief producer Masachika Kawata
I’m not too concerned about the sales of Darkside Chronicles. Like Mr. Kawata said, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles sold respectably, and considering Darkside Chronicles falls under the RE franchise, it’s a sure-fire bet that the game will do well in the market.

Follow the frantic action and get a dose of Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward coming to WiiTM, Nintendo DSTM and PC in April 2009
Northampton, UK Tuesday 28th April 2009 –
The first day as head nurse – what are you supposed to do with all these gadgets?!? It’s important that you make a good impression and get the emergency ward running smoothly. Your challenge it to get as many satisfied patients processed and out of the hospital as healthy and happy as you possibly can – so you’d better know your stuff!
Machines & Equipment
Try not to keep your patients waiting – cure them quickly to keep them happy and healthy. Juggle them around to stop anyone exploding with rage!
“We’re definitely not planning to water it down at all for the Wii, but again, we’re not going to add in shock value just to have that. First and foremost we want to make a great game, and we want to make a great game that makes sense in the Dead Space universe. When we were working on Dead Space the original, we wanted to make a game that was terrifying, action-packed, kind of hit on all those things that people want to experience in a survival action horror game. We went all-out to do that. I think now that the expectation is that a Dead Space game has those kind of elements. We’re not going out of our way to make it extremely violent, it’s just the story is what the story is, and it’s not a pretty story.” – Dead Space: Extraction exec producer, Steve Papoutsis
I was never really concerned that Extraction’s violence would be toned down just because it’s being created for the Wii. From the outset, developers have stressed that they’re looking to create a Dead Space experience on Wii…Which includes a good amount of violence.
