Capcom, the publisher of the Resident Evil series, hasn’t so far shown any big support for the Wii U. In fact, the company has yet to announce a single Wii U game. That might change soon, as the company recently revealed that they have “some good stuff” coming to the Wii U, with announcements coming soon. Last year, Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata said that he’d love to see Resident Evil on the Wii U.

Resident Evil 6And we might have a reason to get our hopes up. Capcom replied to questions on the official Capcom forums, where users asked about the lack of Wii U support. Capcom’s Vice President dropped by on the forums, saying, “Some good stuff is coming and I’d love to tell you more… but for now, I have to keep it a surprise“. So far, so good.

Capcom has shown great support for the Nintendo 3DS, bringing Resident Evil and Street Fighter to the portable. Some of the Capcom titles that could be well suited for the Wii U include Resident Evil, Lost Planet, and Dead Rising. Hopefully we’ll see some of those games on the Wii U soon. Capcom is currently developing Resident Evil 6 for several platforms.

    ohhh let it be an exclusive remake of Resident Evil 2, and i will love you forever capcom!

    • SuperShyGuy

      Even better would be a remake of RE0, RE1, RE2, RE3 and Code Veronica all in the control camera style of RE 4 + RE5 and RE6 double pack.

      But that won’t happen.

      • Alienfish

        I would hate to be on that development team. All those pre-rendered scenes would have to be made into explorable 3D settings and the whole thing would probably have to be reprogrammed from the ground up. No, look to the past for ideas and apply them to the future with new games.

      • theaquacharger

        That sounds terrible. RE4 and 5 were bad RE games.

        • Cubical_M

          RE4 bad??! It was awesome!

          • theaquacharger

            It was a good shooter bad RE. 5 was a bad game and a very bad RE.

          • theaquacharger

            Also I didn’t say RE4 was bad as I restated I said it was a bad RE game.

        • Someone

          RE4 and 5 losed the essence of resident evil and becomed a generic
          zombie shotter, sadly 22 persons dont know the older games or they
          don’t want to admit.

    • RC

      Yeah, that would be amazing!!!

  • gPadWatcher

    I hope Capcom brings in Resident Evil 6 or a new Street Fighter game to the Wii U.

  • pdxmojo

    A new MEGA MAN game!!!!

    • Dat Guy

      Yeah, and with the gamepad you should be able to change powers directly from there! I’m such a genius!

    • LyingTuna

      HELLS YEAH!!! They cancelled the last 2. I want megaman universe. You know, with the stage designer? The touch screen would be great for it!

    • Big N

      This will be awesome. Tough Capcom already canceled Megaman Legend 3 on 3DS. How I wish they come back to it and put it either on Wii U or 3DS. Or best on both system.

    • pdxmojo

      Check it out! I’m highly rated! Can’t wait to get my hands on the wii u btw, i freaking check this site multiple times daily. I’m obbsessed, and ready to fork over money!

    • Megaman

      I second that… That would be amazing and new Mega Man X game to be specific

  • Ledreppe

    Unfortunate that there’ll be no Capcom launch games. My first 3DS game on the 3DS launch day was Super Street Fighter 4, it was easily one of the best 3DS launch games. It would’ve helped the Wii U launch if there had been a Capcom title.

  • tekkentagU

    maybe the surprise is Monster Hunter 4 for WiiU

    • fedster

      phhht thats so funny lmao nope. capcom r money hungry bastards that dont give a crap about the low profit western side of the industry. they r almost as bad as EA

      • Draco Breach

        What are you on about? Monster Hunter moves systems in Japan. It saved the failing PSP years ago, and rumors of Monster Hunter for the 3DS sends ripples through the community. Let’s not forget how quickly Monster Hunter Tri moved. Not to mention, there was a special collectors edition Nintendo Wii console bundle just in Japan!

        • fedster

          um yea only in japan. mh3G no western release, mh4 probably no western release, capcom abondoned psp and put mh on wii cuz wii sold better, then they put it on 3ds cuz it sold better. what does this all mean? capcom abandons any of it’s audience for the desperate sake of money

          • Draco Breach

            You implied [apparently unintentionally] that Monster Hunter was a “low profit” Western-selling game.

            The Wii sold better than the PSP true, but Monster Hunter Tri was better rated than MH on the PSP. It is Capcom’s responsibility to investors to make a profit, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong there. Monster Hunter doesn’t typically sell well in any region but JP, but it has a niche audience in the US, UK, and AU to only increase profits.

            Typically, MH localization takes a while. There is a lot of convincing to be done. You can’t say MH 4DS isn’t coming to other regions just because localization hasn’t started yet. You can’t say MH4 won’t reach other regions when it isn’t even in confirmed development yet. Yes, we wager is in development, but we don’t know for certain.

            MH moves systems in JP, so it will always see bigger events, tie ins, and release than in other regions. However, the niche audience in US, UK, and AU is big enough for Capcom to want to capture.

          • Opticide

            You’re right. Capcom used to only make games for Nintendo consoles until the PS1 came along. They released a game on PS1, realized how much money they made, and favored Sony and Microsoft consoles. They abandoned Nintendo fans.

          • fedster

            its not just MH, capcom screws around with all games. they screwed with the megaman fanbase a little bit. they screwed with marvel vs capcom3. they screwed with the MH audience regardless of what u think about investors, wich is btw a pointless argument. i could say EA pulled that origin network shyt for their investors but we all kno it was wrong of them. and if i implied it unintentionally then i dont need to b reminded of the statistics cuz i never implied otherwise. sure capcom makes good games but if u actually just look around at their bullshyt they r meanies and could b compared to EA

    • Death

      Hell, I wish…. But I highly doubt.

      • Garic

        Capcom does not want to make monster hunter games for consoles, because it dosent do a fraction as well, as their handhelds. They keep saying it on their forums. Monster hunter has been meant for handhelds, not for consoles unfortunately. And they didnt even localize the last 3 monster hunter games….

  • nambit

    Seriously, I’m tired of all these unannounced surprises that are coming. Nintendo really needs to stop this stuff if they have anything to do with it. I’m not a child, I want to know what to look forward to.

  • Quad

    Ryu for smash bros….

    • NiNtEnDoLoVeR

      Ryu would be GREAT! but…which Ryu? BoF1,2,3,4,5? or maybe a new BoF.
      =D (I just played the 1 & 2)

      • Quad


        • Quad

          thats the only one i played

        • joe

          RE4= Best RE yet, hands down.

      • Alienfish

        Best of Friends? Isn’t Ryu from Street Fighter?

        • Draco Breach

          The lead character from Breach of Fire is also named Ryuu/Ryu. The other recurring character is Nina – typically a princess and typically considered Ryuu’s love interest.

          • Draco Breach

            Breath of Fire* even…


        • Quad

          i got a better idea Smash Bros vs Street fighter

  • Radojko95

    Yeah !!! I’d love to see Resident Evil 6 on Wii U … I am big fan of the series and cant wait to see what they have in store for us ๐Ÿ˜€

    • RockD79

      I think that and Black Ops 2 are the worst kept secrets lol! I think both are a definite. Neither publishers confirm or deny their existence till this day. I think we’re way past the point of them not coming out on Wii U. Would have been told by now.

  • Daemonrunner

    Now with $10 Day One DLC on-disc to unlock the title screen. :-p

  • nitro

    I love how they never mentioned monster hunter…

  • kรผtral

    A Dragon’s dogma 2 will be awesome ok Wii u

  • Dawnofmorning

    Please let it be Monster Hunter! I need to get my ludroth fix!

  • Galaxy

    I’m REALLY starting to hear almost everyone developer say they have “a surprise for Wii U”

    Lets hope it’s either a NEW Mega-Man, NEW street fighter, or maybe even Resident Evil 6 or perhaps a remake of 2 or maybe even 4 or 5

  • AKA-Link77

    Capcom & Nintendo are like Peanut Butter & Jelly ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Maverick-Hunter

    Please capcom gods make a kick ass megaman game I would freaking love a good old game about x and zero and non of this battle network crap, or monster hunter 4 that would be an epic game with 1080p graphics/new controls. Plz n Ty -MaverickHunter

  • bob

    if they had a new resident evil game for wii u launch it would fly of the shelves,i know it wont happen though.

  • Devilus

    Yeah sure they have shown great support for the 3ds…Like that awsome game MegaMan Legends 3. A day don’t go by witout playin that… Capcom is nothing but evil without infaune-san!

  • SuperShyGuy

    Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection! With Street Fighter 1 characters playable in Ultimate SFIV Wii U edition.

  • trainerblk

    (Drum roll please..) megaman x 9 with megaman power on the wii u controller, & some enemies got to be hit by there weakness. Before it’s able to block or protect it weakness or. Let say sigma have all the power of the maverick bosses & you got to hit. Him with the opposite power. Like, let say he use a fire tap the sreen warter, give him more damage to his bar

  • RockD79

    They’ll hold off till Nintendo’s September event. We should get some news before TGS starts.

  • Pete

    Am I the only one looking forward to the DmC reboot? I think the series could find a pretty decent niche among some of the Nintendo fanbase, knods toward JRPG fans and such.

  • JCMGamer

    I want a HD Remake of RE2 that you can also play with the RE4 Camera and Controls. But RE6 would be great!

  • Sethlaw225

    Power Stone 3!!!!!! ……

  • Draco Breach

    Capcom has a lot of nice franchises, and it’s hard to say exactly why the project is so secret. They may still be under NDA, but that’s if it’s a post-launch title. They may want to build some anticipation, but that’s if it’s a launch window title.

    Either way, Capcom has a lot of popular IPs to play with. Monster Hunter has always been popular, and we simply can’t forget about Street Fighter. The Megaman IP has been revived as of late, and Dragon’s Dogma is a new favorite. I want to see Breath of Fire revived, personally. I’ve always been a fan of Capcom RPGs, and I want to see more of ’em.

    Of course, there’s Resident Evil. Capcom has kept some RE titles on the Wii – like 4 and revisits. They also know they made a lot of Nintendo fans mad by keeping 5 away.

    Capcom has an assortment to offer, but they know how to push a new IP as well. If it’s so secret, it could be a new IP designed around the Wii U. Sadly, we won’t know for a while. I just wanted to give some food for thought.

    • PS360Wii

      Would love to see a return of the “Breath of Fire” series for Wii U. After “The Last Story” article a few days ago, I’d like to see a lot of JRPGs on Wii U ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Hi8us

    I wouldn’t be mad at a megaman network transmission 2. I really liked the first game on gamecube. Or maybe just resident evil 6, i’d be happy with either of those games.

  • Shadriczo

    How about a Megaman X9 and a MegaMan XI (11)

  • Mahuuda


  • Douchuumen

    Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition? Megaman 11? Rival Schools 3? Shonen Jump vs. Capcom? Ace Attorney Collection? Viewtiful Joe 3? Darkstalkers 4? Power Stone 3? I hope by surprise, they actually mean surprise. Not like what EA did, saying surprise and giving us FIFA and Madden 13.

  • Raul

    Anyone else notice the quiet troll that is giving everyone a thumbs down?



  • Collected

    So now its Capcom, Retro and possible Nintendo that all have games for the Wii U but haven’t been announced. Hopefully more details will get announce soon or we may not hear anything until the Wii U’s price is released in September.

  • Jerm949

    maybe UMVC3 or even Capcom Vs. Nintendo dont think simple minded fellas!

  • Robert

    Are developers still under NDA’s?

    • Draco Breach

      From what I can gather, NDAs still seem to be in effect for [at least] system specs and post-launch tittles. You can almost bet system specs will always be kept locked up tight, but Nintendo typically likes to leave post-launch titles secret until after price announcement.

  • TheRedSnifit

    I don’t think anyone should be surprised if RE6 came out for WiiU. Based on RE4, they’d port the series to analog watches if they could.

  • Paul

    so excited and cannot wait for what capcom show of in the coming years

  • ChaoSHer0

    Another Tatsunoko vs Capcom!!!

  • Opticide

    I want a new MegaMan game. Megaman 11, Megaman X9, Megaman Legends 3, Megaman Battle Network 7, anything.

  • 12 years and still waiting

    Of topic but SHENMUE 3!!

    • joe

      I always throw Shenmue in the comments, you are NEVER off topic when you mention Shenmue!

  • VS.

    Tatsunoko vs. capcom 2 i second that WITH MORE CHARACTERS and more tag modes & better specials

  • olimar

    Hellooooo?! have you already forgotten Megaman Legends 3?! Thats the real reason they cancelled it, IT’S MOVING TO THE WII U!! XD

  • AwayToHit

    Megaman X9 :D:D:D:D please

  • Undecided

    Resident Evil 6!

    • joe

      I hear Leon dies in RE6, any truth to that?

  • ajfel

    I would like to see Resident Evil 4 in HD on the Wii U, Resident Evil 5 on the Wii U and Resident Evil 6 on the Wii U. RE 1, 2, 3, Remake, Zero $ CV were the best REs ever. I’ve got them all on the Nintendo GC, 64 and Wii.

  • LolWatTurtles

    Considering Capcom has brought tons of Resident Evil games (The only ones I can actually remember not being on a Nintendo system were RE5, and RE6 is probably gonna be on the Wii U) it’s very likely we’ll be seeing a lot of things from Capcom. Am I the only one wanting a new Bionic Commando game from Capcom though?

  • Zero

    Ace Attorney!!!!
    I love you Capcom, Nintendo, and all those who support the upcoming Nintendo HD console.

  • The_Beeshnu

    I still can’t get over how disgusting that logo it

  • jak tu

    I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3 hours lately, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the net can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  • Jose Perez

    I’d like Capcom to release dragon’s dogma for the pc but with the ability to make more than one pawn and maybe the ability to travel on creatures backs.
