Time to put 2+2 together. Capcom marketing man Matt Dahlgren has been giving interviews today. Giving interviews and dropping hints about a new Code Veronica game on the Wii.
First, let’s look at how Dahlgren winds up his interview with Game Focus:
Game Focus: One of the staff here loves Code Veronica (Fale) and was wondering if we would see a XBLA or PSN release of this game.
Matt Dahlgren: Nothing is planned for the game regarding a remake on PSN/XBLA, but what I can say is if you are a fan of Code Veronica you should pay attention in the next couple of weeks there is some news you should be very pleased with. Tell him to pay attention on the 12th (March).
By also saying “I don’t think Resident Evil 5 would transition well onto the Wii”, he’s obviously ruling that out. Awfully specific. He’s just as specific in an interview with Joystiq, saying in response to a query as to why there’s no Wii version of Resident Evil 5 “That being said, Nintendo Wii fans will be very happy very soon.”
Then we can look at a comment from Resident Evil 5 producer Masachika Kawata, who last month teased “Personally I would like to create something on Wii in the Resident Evil family. At the moment we don’t know and have just been working on RE5, so watch this space.”
Is it too much of a stretch to believe we’ll be seeing a new Code Veronica game on the Wii announced on March 12? Or, knowing Capcom, a remake of the GameCube version?
