Resident Evil to become exclusively Nintendo’s
It was announced yesterday at a press conference in Japan that Nintendo will be receiving as many as six Resident Evil titles, which is apparently told to be exclusive to the Nintendo GameCube. This, of course, means that the PS2 will not be seeing the RE series in the near future.
"Capcom has a huge amount of faith in Nintendo," a Capcom Entertainment representative told news officials today. "Nintendo knows it needs the older demographic, and the basic reason that we've decided to work with Nintendo with this series has nothing to do with Sony at all. It has everything to do with Nintendo. It's about where we see GameCube going.
"Nintendo has been very, very anxious about pursuing this series. They approached us about it. Heritage-wise, since the glory days of the NES and Super NES, this is simply a continuation of our decision to work closely with Nintendo. Both companies are looking to grow and expand; it was very smart for Capcom to make this decision. And PlayStation gamers shouldn't feel like they're losing out. After all, we have two of the biggest series on the PlayStation 2 -- Devil May Cry and Onimusha."
The games expected exclusively for the GameCube are as followed: RE Biohazard 0, RE Biohazard 1, RE Biohazard 2, RE Biohazard 3, RE Biohazard 4, and RE Biohazard Code: Veronica. Although this news seems striking, there is still an amount of optimism left for PS2 owners. We here at PSX Extreme believe that once development begins for RE Biohazard 4, Capcom will most likely begin creating a PS2 version to be released once there contract with Nintendo is up, as it will be close to their conclusion of the six game deal.
It has also been discovered, that our good friend and Editor-in-Chief here at PSX Extreme, SolidSnake, has began a rampage in response to the horrendous deal Capcom has finalized with Nintendo. Although he is optimistic of RE Biohazard 4, he now approaches people on the street, lashing out at them in correlation with his hatred for Nintendo and their scheming ways. We try to calm SolidSnake, but he has become extremely vicious in his attempts. I would strongly advise Nintendo to keep a recorded log of this individual, as his revulsion towards this news is unprecedented.
SolidSnake: Yes, I've also been kicking dogs and acting like a complete moron. My parole officer, Officer Johnson stopped me again and had to tranquil me, I feel better, but occasional slamming into walls *slam* still occurs...ouch.
