Just in time for Halloween, Nintendo has announced that “Resident Evil 4” will be coming to the Wii U via the console’s eShop. This will be the Wii version of the game being ported, so it will be one of the better-looking versions of the title and will support the original controller of the Wii.

The announcement was made via the European Twitter account of Nintendo, where it was also revealed that the game will have a 25 percent discount when it comes out. Wii U players will have until Nov. 5 to purchase the game at its discounted price.

Destructoid considers the Wii version of “Resident Evil 4” the best version of the game available, though not the best-looking, as the title for PS3 or Xbox 360 reportedly looks better. However, the report stated that the game looks perfectly fine on the Wii, since the lack of an HD update also hid most of its design flaws.

Whatever version gamers have played, “Resident Evil 4” is considered one of the best action games in recent memory. Introducing the over-the-shoulder camera that revolutionised action games, “Resident Evil 4” revived interest in the franchise and is still considered by many to be the best in the series.

Those who pick up the Wii version of “Resident Evil 4” will be able to get some of the extras that weren’t available with the original Gamecube and PS2 versions, including new playable characters for the mercenaries mode. Fans can also finally play the game in a current-gen console.

“Resident Evil 4” will be available on Oct. 29 for European gamers with a Wii U. Those with a European account in their Nintendo Wii U will also be able to purchase this version of the acclaimed action game. The rest of the world will have to stick with their versions on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
