April 4, 2007 – If you were expecting a full Resident Evil style adventure game in Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles for the Wii, you’d better sit down for this one. The latest issue of Famitsu has a first look at the game following the teaser look provided last September in the build up to the Tokyo Game Show. Surprisingly, Capcom has opted to make a gun shooting game rather than a survival horror adventure.
Umbrella Chronicles takes place from the first person as your characters move through a fully 3D mansion. Using the Wiimote, you take aim at enemies and fire away. You have control over your path only at the occasional branch points in the stages. Everywhere else, you’re on a fixed path, although you are free to look around. Doing so is apparently the key to discovering secret items.
Outside of the first person shooting, the game will bring back the command-based event sequences of Resident Evil 4. During these sequences, you’ll get to see the main characters directly face off against attacking zombies.
Umbrella Chronicles brings the original Resident Evil hero and heroine back into the spotlight. That’s right, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine play prominent roles this time around. Famitsu hints that they’ll be adventuring together, although we’re not sure if this means we can expect multiplayer support. The two S.T.A.R.S. members will be joined by some other recognizable characters, including Albert Wesker, Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen.
