Resident Evil 6 not planned for Wii U

Capcom confirms upcoming horror action game not targeted at Nintendo's new console.

Capcom has no immediate plans to bring Resident Evil 6 to Nintendo's Wii U, the publisher confirmed to IGN recently.

Resident Evil 6 isn't headed to the Wii U, at least not right now.

"Unfortunately, [Resident Evil 6] will not be available at this time on the Wii U," producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said. "Right now we're concentrating on the PlayStation 3 version, 360 version, and the PC version of the game."

Resident Evil 6 will deploy on October 2, more than a month ahead of its original November 20 release date. The Wii U does not yet have a release date, but Nintendo previously confirmed the new system will be out worldwide this holiday season.

Resident Evil 6


Resident evil has always sold relatively well on Nintendo consoles with the exception of RE 2 on 64, which sold decently still I guess.

N64(Resident evil 2) - .5 Million

GCN: RE- 1.4M, RE0-1.3M, RE4-1.7M

Wii: REUC- 1.2M, RE4-2M, REDC-0.9M

Those Wii ones sold pretty darn well considering they were light gun spin offs and a port. Not that I want RE6 for Wii U, but this seems like a poor business decision for Capcom (unless RE6 wasn't selling too well in general)


At least they didn't make some douchy remark about the title screen this time.
