As you might have heard, Capcom has announced a HD remastering of the Resident Evil remake that came out in 2002. And while I suppose this is an ok thing...I guess, here's what makes me really mad about this: REmake HD is coming to every single platform, except the Wii U. Yeah, a game that sold by far the best on a Nintendo system isn't coming to the Wii U as well! Marvelous idea, Capcom! Oh, not just that, REmake was also one of two mainline Resident Evil titles exclusive to Nintendo platforms, the second one being Resident Evil 0, also on GameCube. They just decided to remaster that game in HD without considering the audience that supported that game big time on the GameCube! Now that is an excellent business decision!
Now that I've gotten all sarcasm out of my system, here's what I have to say. First off, Capcom had the balls to put our a terrible excuse as to why this isn't coming to Wii U, saying that they want to bring it to every single other home console on the market. This makes me pretty angry, almost makes my blood boil. And while Capcom has noted that the game hasn't been completely ruled out for Wii U, the chances for it appearing on the system are very slim. This is not going to end well for Capcom, who is already in deep financial trouble after making really terrible decisions last gen. And once again, Capcom has betrayed the Nintendo audience. The last time they did something like this was when they took all the profits they made off of Monster Hunter 4 for the 3DS and invested it into a mobile gaming studio, a platform that isn't really profitable to begin with. But it all began in 6th gen with the deal that Nintendo made with Capcom to get the RE games, along with some other ones like Viewtiful Joe to the GameCube. Some say that actually think that Nintendo paid Capcom to get the RE games onto the GameCube. Me? I think that people just need to pay closer attention to what goes on in the games industry. But I'm sure that Nintendo gave Capcom the Zelda license to make a couple LoZ games for the Game Boy Advance, which probably lead to that big deal for the GameCube. I don't think Nintendo paid Capcom anything for the RE games, or the "Capcom Five" lineup. But anyway, Capcom's ways of screwing over the Nintendo fanbase after we treated them so well started back with the deal that Nintendo made with them on the GameCube. And when Resident Evil 7 is announced, do you think that a Wii U version will be announced? I can tell you with absolute certainty and confidence that it won't be coming to Wii U, even though it's been proven for over 10 years that Resident Evil sells on Nintendo systems. The fact that the remaster of REmake should really be all they have to say. Actually here's my accurate translation on Capcom's said "reason" as to why it's not coming to Wii U:
"Sony and Microsoft paid us to support their consoles, of course we're gonna support PC, but Sony and MS told us to come up with an excuse to not support Nintendo and to make them look good."
Now THAT is the most simple, direct and HONEST reason as to why this isn't on the Wii U. There is no logic in this decision. Even though there is still a chance this may see the light of day on Wii U, I'm not gonna hold my breath. Because I know that they'll screw us over again and remaster the last Nintendo EXCLUSIVE RE game, Resident Evil 0, for again, everything but the Wii U. If Capcom actually has the balls to screw us over (No, actually they will. Trust me.), I'm putting them on my DO-NOT-BUY list along with Ubisoft after the Rayman Legends troll and Konami (F**k you Kojima, you arrogant s#it!).
Well, that's all I have to say.
