Capcom Looking At Newer Games For Wii U, Not Porting Older Ones

Capcom haven’t announced any Wii U games beyond Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, but that doesn’t mean more aren’t coming.


Back in September, Capcom Senior VP, Christian Svensson stated: “There are many thousands of people who are thrilled with the announcement of what is our currently largest brand coming to Nintendo’s existing portable and new console platform. The significance of that should not be underestimated.”


Svensson added that, while he couldn’t divulge further details, Capcom have more Wii U projects in the works that will be announced at later dates.


This week, a user on the Capcom forums asked if Wii U support would possibly come in the form of older games being ported to the platform, such as Resident Evil 6 and Lost Planet 3 which are intended to be available across PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.


To this, Svensson replied: “With regard to WiiU, in general we’re looking forward, not back so late ports are generally not on the table.”


As to why Resident Evil 6 doesn’t have a Wii U version, Svensson shared in a separate thread some time ago that development of the game began in 2008, well before Capcom even knew of the Wii U’s existence.
