Capcom has announced that Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles has shipped over 1 million units worldwide since its November 2007 release. The game, which gave a respectable 7/10 on its European release, is part of the 34.5 million selling Resident Evil franchise and the second game in the series to be released on Wii.

In the press release issued by Capcom, the Japanese video game publisher stated that it "will continue to strive to develop new and original games that appeal to a broad audience around the world while expanding our properties for single content multiple usage."

Multi-platform development isn't going anywhere either, with Capcom stating: "We believe that by bringing this to multiple platforms, it will help the franchise reach an even greater number of users eager for its unique game play."

Next up for the Resident Evil franchise looks to be a port of Resident Evil Zero to Wii, although a release outside of Japan currently looks unlikely. Our next taste of zombie slaying might have to wait until Resident Evil 5, scheduled for next-gen systems late this year.
