With the launch of Resident Evil 5 today, Capcom has announced a new game in the series, this time for the Wii. The new game is called Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles, and is a sequel to the Wii exclusive two player co-op Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.
The new game is being co-produced by RE5 Producer Masachika Kawata. As an on rails shooter, Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles takes players through the story of Resident Evil 2 starring Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy. According to the press release the game will offer a more "in-depth co-op experience." We aren't quite sure what that is, but at least Capcom is living up to their promise of providing more co-op games.
Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles is set to launch later this year with 2 player local co-op. We have the announcement trailer straight ahead.
