Capcom Not Looking To Bring "Late Ports" To Wii U
Posted by Andy Green
Focusing on new titles rather than old ones
The Wii U has had its fair share of ports already; games that have been released previously on other consoles and have been transferred over to Nintendo's new system with a few more bells and whistles attached. Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition, Darksiders II, and Mass Effect 3 for example have all had control or content updates on Wii U when the new console launched.
Of course there are plenty of other games currently being played on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that many Wii U owners would like to see. We already know the likes of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will almost certainly not be making it to Wii U, and now it seems Capcom's current array of titles won't be making the switch either.
In a recent post in the Capcom Unity forums, Capcom’s Senior Vice President Christian Svensson has said people should not expect any of their current titles to appear on Wii U.
With regard to WiiU, in general we’re looking forward, not back so late ports are generally not on the table.
This means the likes of Resident Evil 6 are highly unlikely to find themselves on Wii U in the future. Capcom has, however, produced Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the system, so it's not all bad — though it surely borders on being an enhanced port with some additional content. The game is coming along nicely, as we recently explained in our first impressions.
