    Default Dead Rising Comes to Wii

    This week's Famitsu had a surprising game announcement. Dead Rising will be coming out for the Nintendo Wii. Its a port of the original game, though it will supposedly feature a more "Resident Evil 4" style combat system. The reason for the port is that Capcom were happy with the sales Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition garnered. Though they say that the title will keep casual gamer needs in mind. It will have waggle controls similar to Resident Evil 4. They cite using motion controls for swinging swords or removing a zombie who is attacking you.

    Haha, I was editing the post before you posted that XD. I must say, it looks remarkably faithful to the 360 version. Though, obviously, it lacks the amount of enemies seen in the 360 one.

    also it wouldn't hurt if they reduce the detail on enemies to allow more zombies on screen .. its a wii version anyway people won't mind ugly enemies i guess ..

    Maybe you are still shell-shocked from the BH0 Wii announcement, but not everyone who owns a wii has a 360. The port is somewhat justified, at least, more so than the BH0 Wii one. I wish they put it on PS3 though. It seemed like a golden opportunity

    No, I mean Capcom are conspired against PS3 users or something, make some ports on PS either for gods sake. And I think that WII will be much weaker from the technical side.

    I already have it for the 360 but I´m happy for the Wii users after the horrible Nintendo conference they deserve something that is worth. I will buy it if they add some extra stuff.

    You know, after seeing all the latest Capcom ports I dont think that there be any bonus features, it is even possible that the game itself will be cuted, I'am sure devs will delete some features and possibilitys that original had.

    The wii is becoming the new gamecube with all these ports lol
    I can't see why i'd buy this game because the xbox version was good enough but if they add just something new then i'd get it just to relive those good times, along with a new feature.
    Please also add more helmets, loved the lego one, AND NO TIMER MODE, SO I CAN SAVE EVERY PERSON IN THE MALL WITHOUT GETTING ANGRY....whew

    Judging from the scans, the cutscenes are probably MPEG encodes of the 360 versions, but you can't deny how good the gameplay shots look.

    It's likely the same engine they've developed for Monster Hunter 3.

    I think it might be the Resident Evil 4 engine. I can't see them getting MT Framework running on the Wii, and the "RE4-like aiming" fits with this.
