Just when you thought Resident Evil 4 couldn’t possibly show its face on another platform, Nintendo reveals that the game-changing horror game will be making its way to the Nintendo US eShop. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition will launch on February 4 and will cost $19.99.

Resident Evil 4 marks an interesting point for the Resident Evil series, as it rebooted the the series’ survival horror elements and replaced most of it with action elements. While it remains a ton of fun to play even to this day, it is also the reason why the Resident Evil series has declined with each new release as they pile on more action and less survival horror.

While we still don’t have any news regarding when the next main game in the series will launch, we do know that Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps is set to launch this May for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Umbrella Corps is set two years after the events of Resident Evil 6 as many corporations race to scavenge what was left behind by Umbrella after they were destroyed. The game is a multiplayer-based game, though a singleplayer mode will be included that offers dozens of missions to take on solo.
