Skullgirls Wii U eShop Release "Unlikely" Until The Console's Sales Pick Up

Developer feels Nintendo needs to "establish" its digital presence, too
2D downloadable fighter Skullgirls would appear to be the ideal candidate for a Wii U eShop release. The brawler has already graced both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, and one would assume that making the leap to Nintendo's digital store front wouldn't take much effort.
Sadly, that doesn't seem to be the case. When asked about the possibility of a Wii U eShop launch, the official Skullgirls Twitter account gave this reply:
@josemedina910 Right now a Wii-U release isn't looking likely. If sales pick up and they establish a digital presence it's possible, though.— Skullgirls (@Skullgirls) May 10, 2013
That's fair comment on sales — developers obviously want a large user-base so there's plenty of people to buy their software — but "establishing a digital presence"? Surely Nintendo has taken steps towards doing that already with the Wii U eShop?
Is Skullgirls a game you'd like to see on the Wii U? Leave a comment to tell us your thoughts.
