Why There's No Marvel Vs Capcom 2 On Wii

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.

    Haha...HAHAHAHA!

    But seriously. :D

    Nooooooo. Would a straight port still be too big??

    @Neurogasm My Dreamcast disk of "questionable origin" clocks in at 630MB.

    So, it's at least that size. However, a lot of that space may be uncompressed audio, but still you wouldn't get anywhere near 40MB.

    The original arcade was a NAOMI, so most likely optical disk based, and would have a similarly large ROM.

    Tatsunok vs Capcom will never come out for PS3 and xBox...so it's a give and take.

      @ The Duck Hunt: I hope you know that a Tatsunok vs Capcom sequel might come out for the ps3 and xbox 360 depending on North America sales on the Tatsunok vs Capcom for the Wii.

    tatsunoko vs capcom is awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!i play it everyday! its my 3rd fav in the vs series
