A survey from the folks at Capcom is being sent out to a few select people, but there is one item that may be appealing to Wii owners. Question fourteen asks, “What would make you want to purchase ‘Resident Evil 5’ more?” And wouldn’t you know it: One answer includes, “The release of a Wii version.” Of course, it would be silly to say that this means that Resident Evil 5 has a good chance to come out for the Wii, but one has to consider the possibility. With ports such as Okami and Dead Rising: Chop ‘Till You Drop being made at a regular pace, would Capcom ever consider a Resident Evil 5 Wii release?

Thanks to Bloop for the heads up.

The positions of the titles will be back last week. I admit, I forgot to do the charts for the past 2 weeks or so…Sorry about that!

“I kind of wished that the difference got sorted out but obviously there’s the licensing issue for bond, if it it’s something that’s already come out. The ball’s not in anybody at Rare’s court, really. It’s squarely in the license holders’ court. It’s a shame. It’s kind of locked in this no man’s land. There’s nothing on LIVE Arcade, there’s nothing on Wii.” – Rare’s Nick Burton

GoldenEye is pretty much one of the best N64 games and it’s also a classic. Even though the game doesn’t look good for a VC release, I suggest that anyone who never got a chance to experience it on the N64 give it a shot.

The first real details about Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars hit the web yesterday via an email survey. However, Rockstar did not seem to be too thrilled about that. The thing is, the details seemed to have come from a broken NDA, so Rockstar is doing everything in their power to have all of the information removed from every website. The funny thing is, the whole situation is strange, since the information has already been posted on tons of websites. At this point, a lot of people already know about the leaked details. Grand Theft Auto: China Town Wars is scheduled to release this Winter.

A few weeks back, we learned that an original Elebits game would be heading to the DS. It seems like a new Wii game could be in the works, too.

Wait you said Elebits is probably going to come out for the Wii? Do you mean there is going to be Elebits: Adventures of Kai & Zero on the Wii or is there going to be a brand new Elebits game?

This is also a good question. One question I’ve asked of our producers and we sat and discussed this. There are a lot of press and fans that enjoyed the first game on the Wii and my question to my producer and the game designers was is the DS story the new direction for the franchise?

Mukaitouge-san who is the producer of the first one basically said that the DS experience will be the next direction for the next DS experience. The first Wii game will be the story and the starting point for the next Wii game. There will be two stories that happen in tandem, one on the Wii and one on the DS. They will overlap with characters, environments, and things like that, but each platform will have its own experience.
