Locked: Q&A with Resident Evel 5 producer about a possible Wii version

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Q&A with Resident Evel 5 producer about a possible Wii version

http://www.gamedaiily.com/articles/news/resident-evel-producer-talks-about-wii

Most interesting parts of the interview:

Q: Are there any plans to bring Resident Evel 5 to the Wii?

A: At the moment we don't have any plans for a Wii version, because we don't think that our game is suited for the demographics on that system. Another big problem is the scale of the game, we would have to redo the entire game to make it run on the weaker hardware.

Q: But it wasn't too long ago that you re-released Resident Evel 4 for the Wii and the game became a commercial success. So why not bring the sequel to the Wii as well?

A: You have to consider the circumstances under which the game was released. It was a budget priced game and at the time of its release there weren't any other hardcore games available on the platform, so these facts greatly contributed to the commercial success of our game. But as studies from for example Famitsu have shown,70 % of Wii owners don't play their system anymore, so I am not too sure that there's still an audience for the sequel of the game on the Wii and that's why we don't consider a Wii version at this point in time.

Q: So you think it's unlikely that your new game can sell on the Wii?

A: Well yes, the Wii's success is mostly based on its controller and casual games, the cheap price of the system is another big factor to make people want to buy the system. If you take a look at the sales charts [in Japan] you see titles like Wii Sports, Wii Play and Wii Fit selling very well, but hardcore titles like No More Heroes bomb and 3rd party games like our own Zak & Wiki generally don't seem to sell on the Wii.

Q: What about Umbrela Chronicles? It seems the game is selling decently so far?

A: It's doing okay, but I think it's more of an anomaly, really. I think the people buying it are the last hardcore gamers left on the Wii who haven't moved over to the 360 and PS3 completely yet. Casual games and minigame collections seem to be the games selling the most on the Wii and we aren't going to make these kinds of games.

Q: So what you are trying to say is ...?

A: I blame Wii Fit.

Q: Okay, one last thing: Can we expect to see Resident Evel 5 this year on 360 and PS3?

A: Our team is working hard to get the game ready for a holiday release, so yes it's possible, but I can't make any promises.

My personal take on what was said:

I think that this whole interview should be considered as a joke. This guy makes ridiculous claims why his game wouldn't sell on the Wii, I really can't stand this type of mindset anymore.

I hereby declare that I will boycott all of Camcop's games until they finally take the Wii serious. Anyone with me?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

This is a joke right? This looks like a post made by an immature poster on neogaf not the producer of resident evil.



currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

wow thats pretty harsh



why must they continue to slap us wii owners who want epic "hardcore" games



I am WEEzY. You can suck my Nintendo loving BALLS!

This guy is going to get his ass fired haha, not to mention has a very strong bias against Wii which devoids him of real facts. Oh well he better hope that this doesn't send bad PR out towards Capcom, as anything bad hype wise affects sales, which will get his superiors pissed at him. These devs of games got to learn that what they say will be held accountable for the entire corproation. And its evne worse when you are lying and stating false things.



Around the Network

Let's tag along.... I think he's right; I don't play my Wii for more than 12 hours a day, I play games like Chicken Shoot all day and I will migrate to PS3 sooner or later because the Wii has no future.



there is a reason this producer is producing and not doing PR..yeeesh.

he has made me not want to play any of his games after this interview. lol

and why are they even letting this guy speak . he should just produce and not deal with the public he obviously sucks at it :)

That is completely wrong. There are TONS of hardcore gamers and I dont plan to switch completely over to the PS3 or 360 ever. I have all 3 next gen systems, but I play the Wii more than the other 2 and I wouldnt STOP playing the Wii to START playing the 360 or PS3. So, Capcom exec's, if you are reading this, your RE5 producer is extremely misinformed! (Although Wii is very casual based.)

That's... stupid....

"Well, yeah, Zack and Wiki, the game with zero advertising and an art style and name that scream '4-year-old cartoon', didn't sell well. And RE4 sold well because it was the only action game on the Wii (ok...).

Umbrella Chronicles? Yeah, it's doing well, but it's an anomaly. Why? BECAUSE I SAID SO, THAT'S WHY!"



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?
