Capcom has revealed that Wii owners will soon be able to play classic Resident Evil games they may have missed, starting with the first Resident Evil (GameCube remake) in June.
The Raccoon City Police Department doesn't know what happened to the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) team it sent out to investigate the Arklay Mountain area, where a number of people have recently gone missing. The unit's helicopter seems to have crashed in the woods, and it hasn't received any contact from the squad since. The department decides to dispatch another S.T.A.R.S. unit, the Alpha team, to check things out, but something goes terribly wrong.
Players take control of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team members Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, with their mission to investigate the ominous mansion at the core of the horrific disaster and uncover the secrets behind a radical, genetic research facility.
The GameCube remake was released in 2002 and featured new rooms, areas, items and creatures that were not included in the 1996 PlayStation original. The Wii version will be released at a budget price.
