Capcom Has No Plans For Street Fighter on Wii U Just Yet

Nintendo fans remain hopeful for Street Fighter V
Street Fighter has been released on many different Nintendo systems over the years but it seems Wii U owners may have to wait a while to get a brand new game released on the console.
Speaking on Twitter, the series' executive producer Yoshinori Ono has confirmed there are currently no plans to bring the franchise to Wii U but didn't rule out any future possibilities.
We apologize that we don't have plan abou it at this moment. RT @Snowman_2002: Will we see any SF for other fans on the wii u?— Yoshinori Ono (@Yoshi_OnoChin) August 16, 2013
Super Street Fighter IV 3D was the latest iteration of the fighter to make it to a Nintendo system and there has been no talk of the game being ported to Wii U. Of course, you could always dip into the Wii Virtual Console if you fancy some classic beat 'em up action, with the likes of Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting being available for download.
Street Fighter V may be a long way off yet as the fourth edition took ten years to succeed the third. However, back in 2011, former Capcom community manager Seth Killian told Eurogamer there wouldn't be a decade-long wait for the fifth adaptation of the series. Hopefully when it does get announced, Wii U will be supported.
