Capcom's Wii U Mistake

CCC: Recently, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono announced that Capcom has no plans to bring Street Fighter to the Wii U. An obvious choice, right? The Wii U is selling rather poorly recently, already being one of the worst-selling consoles on the market. Not only that, but Street Fighter has pretty solidly set itself as the fighting game of choice on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 without a Wii counterpart to speak of. In fact, there are very few fighting games on the Wii at all, so it’s only natural that fighting-game developers should completely ignore the Wii U as a serious fighting-game platform, right?

WRONG!

Street fighter has the longest history on nintendo platforms, i think it should have been made for the wii u too. But anyone whos been playing SF since the snes days probably hates SFIV anyway haha. I personally doubt the game will sell well at all since everyone who wanted to play SFIV already has and most probably wont buy the game again.

I've had enough of SF4. I have the original,Super,Arcade, and the 3DS version. I'M DONE! I'm more excited for the SF2 games on the eShop.

in all fairness as a wii u owner i just dont see a street fighter translating well to the game pad, if they were to bundle a fight stick or the pro controller thats a different story, but as is, the game pad isnt the best choice for a beat em up like street fighter!!! shame capcom is not supporting the wii u fully, hell even konami have been making me mad lately their is no reason why the hd version of castlevania which sold well on 3ds should skip wii u!

Why are the big Japanese companies like square, konami, and capcom not supporting nintendo is beyond me!!

The same reason American and European companies avoid Wii U, hardware sales. If they can't make money off the Wii U then why waste money porting or developing for it.

It'd be terrible to leave games out because it may not work awesomely with the gamepad when the system has other controllers as well as wiimote support besides Sf could work on a WiiU since its basically and expanded ps/360 controller

I already have Super Street Fighter IV so I'm not broken up over this.

If I were them, I would do the same. Wii U's install base is small and they only buy Mario games.
