April 4, 2007 – The Wii version of Resident Evil 4 was confirmed earlier today for inclusion in the elite “Worst Kept Secrets” club as Famitsu spilled the beans on the title in its latest issue. The Famitsu report comes following the game’s appearance in retailer databases on two continents.
Titled Biohazard 4 Wii Edition in Japan (the RE series is known as Biohazard in its home country), this update promises full Wiimote support. The Wiimote is used to aim a targeting cursor in order to target and fire at your enemies. To reload, you hold down on the B trigger and shake the Wiimote. In case you were wondering, the built-in speaker is being programmed with a reload sound effect.
The Wiimote is also used for close-range attacks. When an enemy approaches, all you have to do is give the Wiimote a little of the shake-shake. The game automatically detects the direction of the enemy and makes Leon perform a knife attack. This move can also be used against trees and barrels.
The rest of the game has also been modified to take account of the Wii’s unique controller. Interactive event scenes display the Wii buttons when prompting for input. Some events require that you shake the Wiimote.
The producers of the Wii version revealed to Famitsu that one of their goals is to allow families who play the Wii together to experience Resident Evil. The game will include “Easy” and “Amateur” difficulty settings, selectable from the start, that will make aiming easier and keep your life from depleting too fast.

I hope this isnt just another junky port. The Wii is suffering from too many junky PSP and PS2 ports. I hope they really worked on this one.
