Capcom is bringing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to the Wii U, but that’s not the only Wii U game they’re working on. Last month, a Capcom vice president confirmed on the official Capcom forums that they are working on a Wii U game. It turned out that he wasn’t messing around with gamers — a month later, Capcom revealed Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U.

Now that same VP, Christian Svensson, is giving us more good news. He once again dropped by the forums and confirmed to fans that the publisher has “other projects in the works” for the Wii U besides Monster Hunter 3.

Capcom’s highly anticipated Resident Evil 6 will be coming out early next month, and it’s one game that we would absolutely love to see on the Wii U in the future. The company is also working on a brand new sci-fi action IP called Remember Me, which was at one point considered for the Wii U. Hopefully we’ll see both titles on Nintendo’s new console.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the only Capcom game that’s officially coming to the Wii U. It’s a remake of the original Wii game, and includes new content, improved graphics, and more. It will be released in early 2013.

What Capcom franchise would you love to see on the Wii U? Let us know in the comments section!

  • Nintendo Power of Canada/USA

    I want to see Megaman on Wii U.

    • XENAJA


    • Grodus

      I thought that when I saw the Capcom logo with Megaman on it, too.

      • u mad bro

        Please be a Megaman game if not then let it be Street fighter.

        • td,y,i,.

          Mega Man!!! or maybe RE6! or maybe a RE2 hd remake.

    • Big N

      I really wish they are doing something for Megaman Anniversary this December for WiiU. A similar megaman collection (original and X series) like in Gamecube will do for now while working again to Megaman Legends 3.

    • jkp


  • Ryu

    We want MEGAMAN ON THE WII U!!!

    • Mass Effect fan

      You really very funny kids now you have HD console and you want some game from maybe Sega days instead of Remember Me or Resident Evil 6 that’s why you don’t deserve third party games.

      • person

        Maybe they just love Megaman. Who says they don’t want those other games? You’re probably just a kid who thinks only M rated games are cool. You’re lame. HD console doesn’t = M rated sci-fi games, dork.

      • NoPUNintendo

        Oh look, an ignoranus.

      • ceramicsaturn

        Yes, because we all know that the better the graphics are the better the game. That’s why Crisis is known as the best game of all time. /s

      • Zomegax

        These people might actually like megaman, sometimes games like that turn out to be better than high graphics, m rated games. Of course, based on your comment, you probably wont realize this. Also, is Megaman legends 3 still canceled? It looked like a really good game before they shut it down

      • Nintendo Power of Canada/USA

        Who wouldn’t want Sega games. There like the best, plus Nintendo

    • Zeta

      Forgive Mass Effect Fan, it seems he doesn’t know what games were like back then, its like someone saying why watch Titanic because its an old movie and if you are going to watch it you don’t deserve Total Recall (random pick)

      • ceramicsaturn

        By his definition, the original Star Wars trilogy must be MUCH worse than the prequels. Who’da guessed…

        • Solphins

          or the crappy re-release versions of the originals.

  • victor

    if capcom do a remake of resident evil 2, same storeline, hd , HD graphics, i forgive them for all the crap the turned the series into.

  • Fresnokila

    I guess a Tatsonoko vs Capcom 2 would be nice..or better yet…Capcom vs SNK 3 haha…

    Though I would really love if they release the Resident Evil game on the WiiU…and seeing their past track record releasing them on Nintendo platforms I sure hope they don’t skip us this time..maybe we get a special edition later on πŸ™‚

    • Lew3107

      One crossover I’d like to see is Shonen Jump vs Capcom.
      Ryu vs Goku, Dante vs Ichigo, Strider vs Naruto. πŸ˜€
      Probably won’t happen though.

    • ceramicsaturn

      OMG YES! Capcom vs SNK’s London Stage!:

      Oh ohho oh oh yea!

      Oh ohho oh oh yea!

  • Jetty

    Darkstalkers 4, Darkstalkers 4, Darkstalkers 4….FC.


    Resident Evil 6 with a new campaign or side story. Implementing the Gamepad in a very interesting way to lure RE fans to rebuy for Wii U.
    Basically the franchises you see in the picture above. Not complaining, bring them on!!
    TGS starts tomorrow so we’ll find out eventually from Capcom.

    • Macarony64

      tgs started today but i love to see all those games but please we dont want lock on disk dlc

      • Jetty

        Technically with time zone or they opened a day earlier than expected?

        • Macarony64

          Yep is today september 19 in japan is septepber 20 cause of the time zones

          • Jetty

            I’m a Naruto fan, already got it.

  • power of life

    capcom is good company plus the great games they have are fantstic one of them or let just say its my favriote is resident evill game so its good news afterall

  • adriano

    RE5, RE6 and Street Fighter

    • icanseeu

      All of which are available for the PS3 and Xbox 360………..

      • ceramicsaturn

        Funny, I wasn’t aware the Wii U could play Xbox and PS games…. /s

  • Bb

    Hopefully it doesn’t come with the requirement of buying DLC just to beat the game.

  • Jannie Wildeman

    I love to see ‘The Minish Cap’ on the Wii U. Who knows?

    • Happy Mask Man

      was only just talking about this today! Amen to that πŸ™‚

    • Shane

      A sequel or port? I have Minish Cap on my 3ds, and I think they want to keep the portable games portable for the most part unless they let you stream from 3ds to Wii U, instead of Wii U to Gamepad. It’s possible.

  • The incredible sandwich


    • The incredible sandwich

      or dmc but with original Dante as a skin

  • Lew3107

    I contacted Capcom a couple of days ago regarding the new DmC game for 2013. I asked them what the release date was and the launch platforms, and after being told it’s coming on January 15th for Xbox 360 and PS3, I was told that a Wii U version is not out of the question, so that’s a possibility.
    If it isn’t that, then I’d be happy with either SSF4:AE or Resident Evil 6. Maybe even an Ace Attorney HD collection or a Mega Man game?

  • Death

    “Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the only Capcom game that’s officially coming to the Wii U. It’s a remake of the original Wii game, and includes new content, improved graphics, and more. It will be released in early 2013.”

    Wtf? They may have a similar title but ALOT of things are different.
    It’s actually a remake of Monster Hunter 3G (only released in japan) for 3ds.
    For japanese gamers, it’s an hd release of 3G with added stuff.
    Get your facts straight.

    • Lusunup

      so your saying this has all those monster that didn’t come in the Us version of monster hunters tri? like Sand whale monster? O_o tell me you know your facts

      • Death

        Sand whale monster? You mean jhen? He was in the american version of tri and in 3g he returned as his original form as with a subspecies form. There’re might also be monsters that weren’t in Tri OR 3G in it such as Tigrex. There are also new subspecies such as black lagiacrus, hungry Deviljho, and Invisible Narcagua, to name a few.
        3G had all the monsters of tri and many more. Mh3U is going to have all the content of 3G with new, original stuff as well as content from previous Monster Hunter games, such as Portable 3rd.

  • Joeyperez

    your title says cap com has more in the works kinda feeling to it. however it feels as though you didn’t announce a single new thing.. we already knew about monster hunter.. blah you got my hopes up!

  • Neonridr

    I can easily see Resident Evil 6, or at the very least, one of the HD remake bundle packages that the 360 and PS3 will be getting. Perhaps a compilation that has Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil 1 (The GameCube Remake) and Resident Evil 4 (since all 3 of those games were on Nintendo systems first). All with enhanced HD visuals and Gamepad uses.

  • nintendofreak

    isnt d megaman dude supposed to have left capcom….so i guess there is no more megaman

  • NintendoGamer

    Viewtiful Joe 3 and we got a deal, Capcom.

  • Piemelworst

    Monster Hunter 4 would be nice as well.

  • Paul

    id love a resident evil wii u edition

    should include all editions of the games from one to six and price it at Β£75

  • Sethlaw225

    POWER STONE 3 !!!!!

  • Ninty1

    I hope one of the games is Tatsunoko vs Capcom 2

  • allon

    Mega man!

  • Super Paper Rye

    Hoping for Megaman or at least one of Megamans sub series… except those things killed Megaman.
    I just want Megaman to be revived, cause I never got to play him.

  • ocarinaoftime

    This is nice.

    On a side note.. I’ve been seeing that the wiiu is getting bashed for its graphics? They really think they’re “on par” with that of the ps3 right now. Lol load of bull. But ill humor that dumb opinion for a second. Lets pretend they are about the same.. that’s wiiu’s starting graphics. Just like resistance fall of man was the ps3’s. Go look back on them now, it’s shit. Excuse the language but now since that REALLY is the case, what does that mean for those of you who still don’t get it, THEY’RE ONLY GONNA GET BETTER c: so if you really think about it, wiiu’s graphics are better .. Idk how much simpler I can put it. Quit your shit.

  • fish


  • Melk

    Eh, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is not a remake, it’s an enhanced edition…

    For it to be a ‘remake’, it would need to be made from scratch…

  • LolWatTurtles

    Hope it’s RE6 obviously. (But where’s all the love for Bionic Commando? Seriously, I fucking loved that game. I want a sequel still.)

  • Yamiryuu Zero


  • kaczmar456

    Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, some versus game from them too.

  • Kaetsu

    Megaman Legends 3 or Megaman X reboot for the Wii U would be awesome!

  • Coolkat18

    i would luvvvvvvv to see a tatsunoko vs capcom 2, it would be so amazzz… ing πŸ™‚

  • Macarony64

    Onimusha 5 :0

  • logan7699

    X-men Children of the Atom 2, Viewtful joe 3, Breath of fire hd remakes 1 and 2,

  • Lexseven

    I hope it’s Resident Evil 6! A lot of people act like the series is going down hill, or it’s just not as good as it once was. But I think it’s fine the way it is.

    But what might please other Resident Evil fans if for Resident Evil 6 they make to where you can change the camera angle like the way it was in the early Resident Evil games or have it in over the shoulder camera mode like it’s doing now, like changing it in the options menu. I know the camera angle probably won’t be the only thing they would want changed, but ya know it might help.
    I think Resident Evil 6 has the same amount of horror in it as the other early Resident Evil games. I don’t know, I just hope Resident Evil 6 will please all Resident Evil fans.


    Street Fighter 5

  • Wii U Gamer#19


    but another good megaman game would be megaman 11 on the WiiUWare on the Wii U Eshop.

  • Johny

    Capcom… all i want from you is :
    1st- MONSTER HUNTER !! which you gave me and i praise you for that (and if you give us MH4 on wii u/localisation outside japan for 3ds you will be a god for me)
    2nd- cmon… we ALL want MEGAMAN guys πŸ˜€ … that would be a dirty smart move to do… you would get SO much fans …
    3rd- A good DMC plz ? please….even if DMC5… i’d be satisfied =)

  • jcb411abuser

    a fully fleshed out, brand new, new hd graphics monster hunter, with customisable armour utilising the gamepad for design. that is what i want capcom, thanks in advance.

  • NintendoWiiU

    Street Fighter Alpha 4

    • Jetty

      You are a true poet, this is by far the best answer!

  • Josh

    I would like to see a Nintendo vs. Capcom game. Just imagine how epic it would be.

  • DerikGotro64

    Mega Man

  • AcesHigh

    I’m gonna go old-school and BEG (In vain I’m sure) for HD sequels (or even remakes) of their classic arcade games:
    – Strider
    – Final Fight
    – Dungeons & Dragons
    – Forgotten Worlds
    – Magic Sword

    Anyone else?! πŸ˜€

  • Steven

    MegaMan would be Badass to playa πŸ˜€

  • Happy Mask Man

    Capcom will find away to bleed us dry through DLC. I find this company cold and driven by greed… just sayin!

  • alex

    Taken x street fighter, RE6, tasunoko vs capcom, street fighter 4 Wii u ultra edition, megaman but online download, lost planet

  • BananaPwnz


  • Paul

  • *.*

    Wow lotta love for megaman, tbh not heard about it but gonna look it up. Any advice on what console i can try this on.

  • The Plague

    Megaman Battle Network. I know it won’t happen. The battle system in that game never gets old.

  • Slipsevenfold

    Devil May Cry!!!

  • Ledreppe

    I don’t care for Monster Hunter as I couldn’t beat the Wii version. I do however care for other franchises like Street Fighter, I enjoyed the 3DS version and would want to see a future Street Fighter come out on Wii U and not just the rival home consoles like the current generation did.

  • LyingTuna

    I want a new megaman collection! That would be MM 1-10, MM on GB 1-5, MMX1-8, MML 1-2 and Tron Bonne. I dont care if it’s on multiple discs. It would be so…perfect…(cries for a few hours)

    • LyingTuna

      I forgot Xtreme 1-2 and the Zero and ZX games. Oops.

  • Maverick-Hunter

    Please god give us a kick ass megaman game like the good old x series but don’t let it be a turd like x9 and please nothing about nt warrior just leave that megaman nice and dead oh shit I mentioned him aww crap here it comes another nt warrior megaman game -.-

  • Nintyfan

    • Jetty


  • samuDC

    I hope one of the games will be street fighter!

  • SteampunkJedi

    I’m not very familiar with Capcom games. But I hope they make plenty of them and people buy them, because that would be good for Nintendo.

  • Jared

    Saturday Night Slam Masters!

  • J0niex

    Devil may cry and mega man would be nice also a capcom vs game. Capcom vs tatsunoko for Wii was epic

  • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

    I can’t believe that not one person has mentioned remember me. Come on, it’s a brand new IP and looks awesome. Wii have a new system, so wii should be getting the new IPs, especially since it doesn’t come out til next year. Then we’d know something beyond the launch window too. Only good news there. Come on, U know I’m right about that


    1) Mega Man, 2) Street Fighter, 3)Res Evil games for me please on the WiiU would be great…

  • Hatake86
