Resident Evil 6 has recently been released for Xbox 360 and PS3 but Nakanishi believes that GamePad would give Capcom the opportunity to make something different on Nintendo's new console.
"The Wii U certainly looks like it will enable creators to come up with all kinds of never-before-seen gameplay ideas," said Nakanishi. "There are lots of things I'd like to try out on it."
While stopping short of confirming a Resident Evil game for Wii U, Nakanishi added that he'd want to make something a bit different.
"If I was to work on a game for the Wii U, I would definitely want to make something that couldn't be done on any other hardware.
"The GamePad's separate screen enables so many possibilities, and playing on a television screen would enable sharing the experience in a way that wasn't possible on Nintendo 3DS. I feel it would let us create a very unique and fun Resident Evil game."
Koshi Nakanishi discusses the making of Resident Evil Revelations in issue 88 of Official Nintendo Magazine which is out now.
