Resident Evil 5 for the Wii? It could happen

Chin up, Wii owners. There’s a possibility that you too will someday be able to man the meat turret known as Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 5. Speaking with Reuters Japan, Capcom chief financial officer Abe Kazuhiko said that more Wii ports of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles wasn’t out of question, although the decisions would be made according to the sales of the title.

“We have not decided whether we are doing [more ports] or not doing [more ports] ,” Kazuhiko said. “Up until now, after releasing our PS3 and Xbox 360 games,” he continued, “we have brought them to the Wii. Basically, this is the approach we are considering taking.”

The man speaks the truth — Dead Rising did eventually make it to the Wii. We wonder, though, if the controls in Resident Evil 5 will get better or worse once this port inevitably happens. There’s no way, right?
