Capcom explains why Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate isn't on Wii U

The producer of the Monster Hunter series has finally shed some light on why the company isn't porting the 3DS game Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate to the Wii U like when they ported Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to the Wii U in 2013. (3DS, Monster Hunter 4, Wii U)

here's hoping Capcom decides to make an all new MH entry for the Wii U. This way it can be built from the ground up for the more powerful hardware.

I agree, more games need to be built from the ground up for the WiiU, including ports because of its unique skill set

So it's on the 3DS.
Why not on PS4?
That would be great.
MH were a PlayStation exclusive franchise in Japan on the PS2.

Capcom doesn't wanna start from scratch with the monster hunter series...

That's why the cancelled the ps3 version.

My guess they have been using the same engine since the psp Monster Hunters and just upgrading it slightly

they cancelled ps3 version because of costs for development.
DanielGearSolid  +   571d ago
So you don't think a new engine is part of development?

If I translate his explanation I understand this: 3DS has more consoles out there and specially in Japan, so we have more chances to sell millions copies than Wii U....

At the end of the day it's all about money to these guys. Which is why the MH series seems to always be targeting the 3DS over the Vita as well.
