Wii 'Resident Evil 5' "was not possible"

Resident Evil 5's producer reveals that the Wii could not handle the game's title screen.

A Wii version of Resident Evil 5 was never a real possibility, it has emerged.

Producer Masachika Kawata revealed that the system's inability to handle the graphical demands of the title screen ruled out a port of the latest game in the popular franchise.

"The title screen of this couldn't have been done on PS2 or Wii," Kawata confirmed to GameTrailers.

The news will come as a disappointment to Wii owners who enjoyed the system's critically-acclaimed port of Resident Evil 4.

Juntake Uchi, another of the game's producers, however, has since revealed that Capcom still has plans to continue the franchise on the Wii, though a new title on the platform may be "a couple of years down the road".
