Resident Evil Archives is the branding used outside of Japan for a pair of games for the Wii console system. It contains re-ported versions of the GameCube remake of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0. These are currently the only official way to play REmake and Resident Evil 0 on the Wii U.


  • The font used for examines and files was changed in Resident Evil 0 for a more serious looking font. The original NTSC release used a more stylized font directly carried over from the Japanese version, while the Archives version uses a font similar to Times New Roman.
  • The bug that allowed players to gain unlimited amounts of Grenade Launcher ammo is not present. It happens in the original USA and JP versions but was fixed for the original PAL version, and the Player's Choice versions.
  • Both games default to 4:3 aspect ratio regardless of what the console's aspect ratio is set to. (in Widescreen black bars will appear on the left and right sides of the screen.) The Wii U's resolution is still upscaled accordingly if playing on that console.
  • Some of the audio has been re-recorded in the Archives series. One example is when examining the double steel door behind the main hall for the first time you hear Lisa Trevor's moaning her voice. Compared to the Gamecube versions, the usual moan is heard but then with a second moan which sounds like a little girl squealing is mixed with it. This new moan does not passover to the HD Remastered version and instead still retains the GameCube version.
