    Why There's No Marvel vs Capcom 2 On Wii

    [​IMG]

    While both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be seeing a re-release of Capcom's classic 2D fighter Marvel vs Capcom 2, Wii owners won't be seeing anything of the sort.

    While this may have been obvious from the fact the game's release announcement failed to mention Nintendo's console, for anyone who hadn't quite caught on, Capcom's Christian Svensson has spelled it out, explaining that, because the company "don't actually have any retail rights on this project", it can only be offered as a downloadable title.

    While this is no problem for the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live Arcade, "there's no way to get anywhere near the Wiiware filesize limit here". Despite the Wii hardware itself being more than capable of handling an old Dreamcast port. So it's not happening, and it doesn't look like it'll ever happen.

    Sorry.

    That's crap. Thanks to what seems to be a lack of a decent hard drive we miss out on a great classic.

    While I don't know if they will be remakes or emulated version. I know the PSP can't handle emulation of the hardware and if it was ported I don't think it would have all the bells and whistles. As for the Wii, I doubt that it can emulate it as well. It could be ported but yeah I guess Nintendo has a size limit for WiiWare games.

    The 360 can handle beautiful games for XBLA.
