Speaking to ONM, Capcom's Yuri Araujo confirmed that there were "no plans" to bring online play to Nintendo's portable system.
Capcom has also confirmed that the Wii U version will utilise Nintendo's own servers for its online mode.
Will this influence your purchasing decision? Will you now pick the Wii U version over the 3DS one, or are you more interested in teaming up with your close friends rather than strangers online? Sound off in the comments section, as always.
