Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, known as Biohazard: The Umbrella Chronicles (バイオハザード アンブレラ・クロニクルズ Baiohazādo Anburera Kuronikuruzu?) in Japan, is a rail shooting video game co-developed by Capcom and Cavia. The game was released for the Wii on November 13, 2007 in North America; November 15, 2007 in Japan; and on November 30, 2007 in Europe, excluding Germany, where the game is not available due to the refusal of a USK rating and its subsequent inclusion in the index. It was followed by Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. Both Chronicles games are included on the Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection for the PlayStation 3.
The game exposes the Umbrella Corporation's meddling throughout the Resident Evil series through narration from Albert Wesker, a former Umbrella Corporation scientist, and hidden documents pertaining to the organization's secret motives and actions. The game is composed of five scenarios that recapitulate the events of Resident Evil Zero, Resident Evil, and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, as well as new material pertaining to the Umbrella Corporation's downfall.
