Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 in "Not Coming to Wii" Shocker
Posted by Damien McFerran
Wow, that was unexpected.
If you've kept your ear to the ground you'll know that Capcom has recently announced that Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is coming to Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network. This is very much a BIG DEAL because the game is a 2D masterpiece.
Sadly, the Wii is getting the cold shoulder. Capcom won't be bringing Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to Nintendo's console and Christian Svensson - Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development at Capcom - has added that the size of the game is totally unsuitable for the WiiWare release that many had hoped and prayed for:
This is a downloadable play, not a retail play. We don’t actually have any retail rights on this project. And there’s no way to get anywhere near the Wiiware filesize limit here.
So there you have it. No Cyclops vs.Ryu action for you, Nintendo Wii!
