Ready for some new Capcom Wii games? Good, because a bunch of them are coming up.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is the follow-up to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, set to come to the Wii in North America this winter. The story is based on Resident Evil 2. It stars both Leon Kenney and Claire Redfield in a on-rails style game. It's supposed to fill in some story holes left by Umbrella Chronicles.

On top of this, Capcom kicks off their Resident Evil "Classics" line with both Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero, Wii-makes of GameCube titles. Both "have been refitted to support the Wii Remote," which we're guessing will be something similar to Resident Evil 4's Wii edition. We hope. Both are set to be priced at $29.99, with release dates and details coming soon. 

In the gallery below you'll find some new screenshots of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and after the jump you'll find more story details from Capcom.

What do you think of these announcements? I'm pretty interested to see what they do with RE and RE0.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles‘s story is based on Resident Evil 2 and includes the popular characters, Leon S Kenney and Claire Redfield. Its on-rails style gameplay and active camera will create a more immersive “Chronicles” survival experience. As in the last installment, this is a first-person game with extreme shooting gameplay and interactive pathways.
Filling in many of the missing pieces of storyline that were not covered in the original “Umbrella Chronicles”, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles will give hardcore fans the chance to re-live some of the most classic moments of the Resident Evil franchise, while allowing new players to take advantage of the intense action-horror experience only possible on the Wii.
Gamers can choose to take on their enemies with the help of an A.I.-controlled character or enlist the help of a friend to fight via two-player co-op. Adding new dimension and strategy to the arcade-style gameplay in the “Chronicles” experience, the new Evade system will utilize the Wii Remote for a more intense experience when fighting enemies.
