Resident Evil 4 Wii edition
A few minutes ago, Nintendo revealed the title of the latest Wii game to be released on the Nintendo eShop of the Wii U… Resident Evil Wii edition! It will be released next week in Europe, on October 29th to be more precise. There will even be a discount at launch, allowing players to get 25% off until November 5th.
In other words, you will be able to buy Resident Evil 4 Wii edition for:
- 14.99€ (instead of 19.99€)
- $13.49 (instead of £17.99)
- 21CHF (instead of 28 CHF)
If you’re interested in the game, you should remember that it is playable with both the Wii Remote (for controls with the pointers) and the Classic Controller (for the original controls). In other words, you will be able to play with the buttons on the GamePad, which will be pretty handy when using Off-TV.
Unfortunately, we don’t know if Germany will get the version with cut content (as on GameCube and Wii), or the full version will be released instead. However, since the HD Remaster recently released on PC don’t have it, it’s most likely German fan will be left with the cut version again…
Resident Evil 4 Wii edition will be the first third-party game to be released as a Wii download on Wii U in Europe. In Japan, Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Trauma Team came out a few months ago.
Slender: The Arrival, Toki Tori
Since Halloween is next week, you’re probably in the mood for some horror games. Good news: Slender: The Arrival (which also features motion controls on Wii U) should also come out next week in Europe, on October 29th. The game will cost 8.99€, and require 1522,1MB of free space on your Wii U or external HDD.
And once Halloween is over, you will most likely want something NOT featuring zombies or any kind of monsters. Good news: Toki Tori 3D (a Nintendo 3DS port of the original Toki Tori) should be released on November 5th on the Nintendo eShop of the Nintendo 3DS. It will cost only 1.99€.
