Capcom isn’t Focused on Bringing Resident Evil Remaster to Wii U

Resident Evil Remake

Capcom has given a half-assed, and completely horrible reason for not bringing Resident Evil Remaster to the Wii U (And yes, I’m calling it like I see it). Basically saying they are not focused on brining this game to Wii U. Instead, want to bring it to every single other home console on the market. However, the game was not completely ruled out for Wii U, but the chances are slim it seems. Source: RelyHorror

This doesn’t surprise me, Capcom did the same thing with Strider on Wii U.
