Nah... Chances are low that the exploding door is from one of the engine test videos.
So far there's more evidence pointing at "The Mercenaries"-style gameplay then on a sequel to C:VX. And since Capcom is a bunch of shitheads recycling every single bit they can in a "new" game I don't think we'll get what we're all hoping for.


Actually, Capcom has been more open to new franchises (i.e: Dead Rising, Lost Planet, God Hand, Okami and to a lesser extent Phoenix Wright) lately than revisiting old ones. They still rehash stuff once (they just produced their umpteenth Mega Man spinoff series), but not at the same rate they did before.

Anyway. There's really no evidence favoring one or the other to tell the truth. For all we know, Umbrella Chronicles could easily be a Pokemon-clone with Resident Evil creatures instead ("Tyrant I choose you").

Well, thanks for your efforts, rewak. Rolling Eyes

Found out the article is from a Chinese gaming magazine called "Game Next".
The same magazine that got the name wrong, that said "Biohazard 4"+"Gun Survivor"+Wii="Biohazard GS" and told us the game will be unveiled at TGS 2006. Until an official (lengthy) trailer is released everyone should take the information with a grain of salt.

So far nothing has really been confirmed except the title "Biohazard Umbrella Chronicles" because the logo is seen in a Famitsu article.
After all the game could even be a mixture of both rumours: Prequel to "Resident Evil 4" including a mini-game with past scenarios.

Your welcome for the effort. And until something is offically undenaibly confirmed you can choose not to believe that the game will be nothing more than excerpts from each game with a little added storyline, but im telling you thats all it will be.

Oh, and that scan is from Game Next your correct. The quotes are from a previous article ran before this one. And Famitsu did run an article on BH-UC with the same info as is in this one.

That's the only article Famitsu had about UC and it doesn't mention any concrete details about the game.

EDIT: Here's the article from New Quiter.
wii∥Wiiで発売される“バイオハザードシリーズ”情報
 
・Wiiで発売される“バイオハザードシリーズ”は、 外伝作品ではなく、本編であることが確定
・シナリオはベロニカのすぐ後のものとなることが濃厚? 時系列的には、
“ベロニカ” → “Wiiバイオ” → “バイオ4” → “バイオ5”
・主人公は3人。 ジルは確定、他は不明だが、 ウェスカーも主人公の一人になることが濃厚?
ゲームシステムはバイオ4「Wiiで新作バイオハザードシリーズ発売決定!」カプコンは、任天堂の次世代ゲーム機、Wiiに人気ゲームシリーズ、バイオハザードの最新作を 投入する事を正式に発表した。これは正式な続編であり、外伝的扱いではないとのこと。またPS3、XBOX360ですでに発表されているものとは完全に別の作品であるということである。システムは従来とイメージチェンジをすることで絶賛された4を受け継ぎ、主人公には、人気の高いジル・バレンタインが決定し、他2名主要キャラクターが登場する予定との事。

Translated:
New information on the Biohazard title for Wii
- the Biohazard title for Wii will not be a side-story but part of the main-story
- Could it be that the scenario features events after 'Code: Veronica'? The timeline would be "Code: Veronica" -> "Umbrella Chronicles" -> "Biohazard 4" -> "Biohazard 5" then
- There will be three main characters with one being Jill. Could Wesker be another one?

The game system will be like "Biohazard 4" and uses the Wii controller. Capcom announced that the newest Biohazard title will be released on Nintendo's next-generation console. It is an exclusive to the system which means the title will not be released for PS3 and XBOX360. The high popularity of the console is a result of the image change, thus Jill Valentine with her high popularity was chosen to be a main character. The other two characters are not yet decided.
