Why hasn't Capcom decided to make a Resident Evil Anthology for WiiU?

Capcom has already stated that They do not want to bring old games to the WiiU, but Why haven't they decided to go ahead and do an "Anthology" Like what they did for Sony when Resident Evil 6 came out?

Currently as it stands, Nintendo consoles have 7 of the core Resident Evil titles.

  1. REmake
  2. REZero
  3. RE2
  4. RE3
  5. Code Veronica
  6. RE4
  7. Revelations

If Capcom wanted to be serious with Nintendo I'd say they would release an Anthology for the WiiU. They got Wii controls for REmake, Zero and 4 they just have to make RE2, 3, and Code Veronica compatible with WiiU's Controllers. Code Veronica and 4 have already seen HD re-releases, so why not pump those games out on the system?

Resident Evil is somewhat a core franchise on Nintendo Systems, Sure they originated from Sony's Playstation, but since the Gamecube Exclusive deal there has been a Resident Evil on a Nintendo System in some shape way or form. Heck even before Gamecube there was Resident Evil 2 on the N64.

and they're not lagging that far behind Sony in Games for Resident Evil too. So Why not make an Anthology Capcom?

Anybody expecting CAPCOM to give you all those games for the price of 1 is going to set themselves up for a HUGE disappointment.

If Capcom is ever to make an anthology or collection or whatever, Nintendo's console(s) will not be their focus.

These 2 sums it nicely..Capcom is in the shitters atm. Already making excuse that next gen game will cost more to develop = we want to charge more for Xbone & PS4 games. :P
