Capcom of Japan puts down talk that its Biohazard (Resident Evil) franchise may yet reach other systems.
You may have heard recent rumors that Capcom could end its exclusive deal with Nintendo for the Biohazard/Resident Evil games if the GameCube doesn't start performing better in Japan. Today, Capcom of Japan firmly trounced those reports. You can see their announcement (in Japanese) at the link above, but here's a translation to English, courtesy of GameCube Europe:
"A rumor that Biohazard (Overseas name: Resident Evil) may be supplied to platforms other than Nintendo GameCube has started on overseas web sites recently. This has no basis and is not true at all. Biohazard, Biohazard 0, Biohazard 2, Biohazard 3 - Last Escape, Biohazard Code :Veronica Complete and Biohazard 4 are due to be put on the market for Nintendo GameCube exclusively as we announced on September 13th, last year. Our plans have not changed."
Note: Resident Evil 3's subtitle is "Nemesis" outside Japan.
Thanks to GameCube Europe and iromaizan for the tip!
