Capcom has announced that its next Resident Evil game, The Umbrella Chronicles, will include a two-player co-op mode. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, slated for the Wii by the end of 2007, is the latest in Capcom's highest-selling franchise, which it says has sold more than 30 million games worldwide. The new iteration will feature locations from previous games (Resident Evil 0, 1, 2 and 3) in addition to new ones, and will focus on the series' backstory surrounding the fall of the Umbrella Corporation. Capcom has said Umbrella Chronicles will combine first-person, light-gun style combat using the Wii's motion-sensing controls with multiple weapons and new enemies. As showcased at Nintendo's conference, the title will be a key one to highlight the company's new Wii Zapper peripheral, which forms the Wii remote and Nunchuck into a single gun-like controller, something Nintendo says it hopes will reduce the barrier to entry for shooting games. Said Capcom director of product marketing Jack Symon, “The innovative controller functionality of the Wii will allow us to design innovative, original game play never before seen in a Resident Evil game. With The Umbrella Chronicles, we’re adapting Resident Evil to the innovations of the Wii.”
