Capcom unlikely to port back-catalogue to Wii U

Recent releases Resident Evil 6, Street Fighter X Tekken and Okami HD are unlikely to be ported to Wii U.

That’s because Capcom has revealed that it is not currently planning on re-releasing any of its recent titles on Nintendo’s hardware.

When asked on the Capcom Unity blog whether or not a port of Resident Evil 6 was on the way to Nintendo’s machine, senior VP Christian Svensson replied: With regard to Wii U, in general we’re looking forward, not back so late ports are generally not on the table.”

Capcom was absent from the Wii U’s launch line-up and its only officially announced game for the platform to date is Monster Hunter 3. And upcoming multiformat releases such as DmC Devil May Cry and Lost Planet 3 are not planned for Nintendo’s machine.

However, Svensson has previously confirmed that further Wii U titles are in production and will be announced in the future.
