Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero Gets
a Ship Date!
announced today the ship date for the Wii exclusive Resident Evil Archives:
Resident Evil Zero will be December 1, 2009. Resident
gives Wii gamers the opportunity to play classic Resident Evil games they
may have missed, now at a great value price of $29.99.
Prequel to the game that started a multi-million
dollar franchise, Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero exposes the back
story and internal tyranny of the Umbrella Corporation and lets players discover
the origins of the T-Virus in an epic storyline that tells the horrors leading
up to the infamous mansion incident.
Only available on the Nintendo GameCube until now,
Resident Evil Zero brings Rebecca Chambers – rookie member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo
Team – to
City , where she must investigate a
series of gruesome murders. Almost immediately she stumbles upon a military
transport truck filled with corpses and her journey of horror begins.
Along the way Rebecca meets Billy Coen, an
ex-Marine convicted on circumstantial evidence for the murder of 23 people.
Players will get to control both Rebecca and Billy simultaneously using the
Partner Zapping system, as they fight their way out of
City in the last of the main titles to
use the original Resident Evil gameplay system prior to Resident Evil 4.
