Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles comes to all U Wii U owners


With all eyes on Nintendo’s next home console, the Switch, one would think that the Wii U will quickly be thrown to the side. That’s not entirely the case. Despite production of the hardware being ceased in the near future in the Japanese market, thus leading to a cease in shipments to North America, the Wii U is still receiving doses of support. Today’s dose comes in a T-Virus vial.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is now available on the Wii U Virtual Console. The former Wii-exclusive was a fun on-rails title that took fans and new players alike on a roller coaster ride through a sort of “Greatest Hits” version of the story arcs found in Resident Evils 0, 1, and 3 (along with a new scenario). While straying away from the canon storylines, to cater to the game’s co-op focus, Umbrella Chronicles was still a fun experience, especially with a partner.

You can download the game on Wii U’s eShop for $19.99.

    It wasn’t a Wii exclusive, it already came to PS3 (PS Move)

    • Yup! It did. But it was a “former” Wii exclusive because it originally came out on that system, before the PS3 version you mentioned.

    Good game and great fan service of the older games. I remember I was stuck on Talos for a very long time. I also loved the mission of Jill and Chris taking down Umbrella. Darkside Chronicles is great too.

      Agreed. The gameplay itself wasn’t phenomenal, but the fan service and the story elements were great. I really loved reliving CV in Darkside Chronicles.

    I played both UC games and they were okay. I enjoyed the Code Veronica material in the second one… but $20 for this? They weren’t THAT good, especially considering that 4/5/6 are all available for $20. $10 would be more reasonable…
