Capcom: No “late ports” for Wii U

Don't expect Resident Evil 6 or Lost Planet 3.

Capcom isn’t planning porting any of its already released games to Wii U, Capcom boss Christian Svensson has said.

“With regard to Wii U, in general we’re looking forward, not back so late ports are generally not on the table,” said Svensson on the Capcom Unity forums, which asked if “stuff like Resident Evil 6 or Lost Planet 3” could see a Wii U release at a later date.

The publisher’s first Wii U release, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, will launch alongside a 3DS version in March.

Thanks, CVG.

      Pretty sure this article is about Wii U.

      What does E.X. Troopers have to do with that? Capcom made it? So what?

      Please try to stick to the topic at-hand next time or at least use the open forum to post stuff like this :P

    Capcom used to be THE company when it comes to games. Alas these days are long gone. I really wonder what has gotten into them.

      The same thing that has gotten into most companies.

      Greed.

      Sengoku Basara Utage, Dragon’s Dogma, SFIV:AE, UMVC3, EX Troopers, HD releases of all their best games…. I wonder why you all have collective amnesia.

    aww i was hoping RE6 on Wii U though.

  • Akira_Tenshi

    That’s okay because Wii U doesn’t want Resident Evil 6, it was awful.

    CAPCOM also said in a statement at the same time “We will no longer make games for our fans, especially not games for PS consoles, and especially not Megaman games.”

    Effing Capcom.

    “we wont release old games on the wii-u. We LOOK to the FUTURE not the past so our first Wii-U game is an updated port of an old ass Wii game”!

    So Capcom won’t make ports for a new hardware? And yet they made ports of fighting games for the Vita for some quick cash…

  • Bobo Fango

    Gonna call bullshit on this one.
