Thank you Capcom

I think Capcom will be the biggest supporter of the Wii U.

So let me get this straight:

Capcom says: We are looking forward and not backward with regards to WiiU.

Capcom promotes: Monster Hunter Tri upgrade?

Something sounds... unright.

I've actually always liked Capcom.

I think, besides Nintendo developed games, Capcom takes the biggest share in my collection. I know people like to hate on them because they release a lot of ports, but they've never done anything wrong to me. When there's a new Capcom game, I always watch with interest. I'm glad they aren't releasing ports of PS360 games that have obviously started development before WiiU was announced, I don't see why anyone would expect them to appear.

Good job Capcom! Bring on the new games!

Good, most Capcom games were not that good anyway! I hope they focus on actually building games from the ground up on the Wii U like RE:4 on Gamecube or RE:Revelations on 3DS...

Back ports are a waste. Give me new games. Sounds like they are going to support WiiU...that's great! Almost all of my favorite publishers are fully on board...3 to go...

“With regard to WiiU, in general we’re looking forward, not back so late ports are generally not on the table.”

What classifies as a late port for Capcom? Devil May Cry has not been released yet, it is fair game? Lost Planet 3? Resident Evil 6 is just a few months old, could they make RE6 gold edition for the Wii U?

And yet we are not getting any announced future games from them. There is no reason why Remember Me can't come to WiiU

Just had to fill my signature-space with something

Wouldn't monster hunter 3 be a port of a late game?
