Capcom Teasing New Game Announcements, Suggests Resident Evil: Code Veronica Remake

Ever the tease, Capcom is back at it again, this time promising that there will be "new game announcements" at the Resident Evil 5 Launch Party on Thursday night.

Now, here's where things get interesting. The company recently promised Joystiq that fans of Resident Evil and the Wii "will be very happy very soon," even though Resident Evil 5--which hits Friday, March 13--"was made for the Xbox 360 and PS3."

The same fellow that made that promise, product manager Matt Dahlgren, then further teased GameFocus. He informed the site that something on March 12--the same day as the Resident Evil 5 Launch Party--would make a fan of Resident Evil: Code Veronica "very pleased," and added that it's not a PSN or XBLA remake.

Of course, that's not a guarantee that Resident Evil: Code Veronica, which brought the series' mix of zombie-killing and survival horror to the Dreamcast in 2000, is Wii-bound. But with multiple announcements and the promise of Wii happiness, it makes you think.
