Capcom Looking Ahead With New Games for Wii U; Not Late Ports

Jason Clement

Many Capcom fans have been wondering what the publisher would have in store for the Wii U in 2013, especially considering that there were no Capcom games at launch.


Capcom's Christian Svensson has stated before that the publisher does have other projects in the works for Wii U other than the known Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, but they're remaining mum on details in the meantime. Of course, some have surmised that "projects" could refer to ports of older games; after all, who can forget Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition, Okami, and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, which were all Wii ports of older games (the latter being a shoddy port as well)?


When asked by a user on the Capcom Unity Forums, Svensson clarified that that might not be the case this time around, stating:


"With regard to WiiU, in general we're looking forward, not back so late ports are generally not on the table."


Mind you, that doesn't mean they won't do any late ports at all, but Svensson's comments do seem to reassure that Capcom is putting the focus on newer and original games this time around, which should please Wii U owners.


In the meantime, Capcom's first Wii U game, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, is scheduled to release sometime in March 2013.
