Capcom is so stupid. Monster Hunter has become there biggest franchise so I have no problem with them trying to expand their audience by putting the series on a PC, Nintendo system or even xbox, but to just completely leave out the fans they made the franchise what it is today is a slap in the face. Capcom makes all their other franchises multiplat at the same time(DMC, SF, RE, Dragon's Dogma, Lost Planet, Dead Rising) are all examples of franchises releasing multiplatform simultaneously. Releasing multiplat expands the audience while at the same time getting more revenue.

All the big third party publishers make sure their biggest franchise is multiplat
ex Ubisoft : Assassin's Creed is their biggest franchise right now which is why they are expanding the series to the Wii U
Activision : COD is their biggest franchise which is why they are expanding the franchise to the Wii U too.

Capcom is showing once again why this gen they have been the biggest dicks to their fans.

Me thinks Nintendo is lining people's pockets with money. This would explain a lot

Or it could be that Nintendo and capcom have a great relationship going back nearly 2 decades.

Here are some highlights:

Capcom developed a few Legend of Zelda games for Nintendo.

Nintendo published and pushed mh3 in the west, something Sony wouldn't bother to do for the franchise.

Several exclusive games like re revelations and tatsunoko vs capcom

Mh3u will have online on wiiu... using servers hosted by Nintendo themselves.

And that's just capcom. Nintendo has these kinds of legitimate partnerships throughout the industry from platinum to level 5. Good business relations are key, and they have been building them in the background this whole gen.
