Capcom has supported Wii U with two game’s thus far: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Resident Evil: Revelations, which will arrive on the console soon. Aside from these two releases, more support from the publisher seems to be on the way.
When asked by a fan why Capcom Arcade Cabinet and Darkstalkers Resurrection aren’t coming to Wii U, Capcom’s Christian Svensson explained that the titles’ inception came “before having visibility into the digital Wii U market or Nintendo’s policies/vehicles pertaining to digital.” Svensson did leave a tease for Wii U eShop fans, noting that they “will have things to look forward to in the future.”
Multiplatform refers to”more than one”. It does not necessarily mean “all”.
To answer your question more clearly, the projects in question were conceived of and started before having visibility into the digital Wii U market or Nintendo’s policies/vehicles pertaining to digital.
Fear not though. Wii U eShop fans will have things to look forward to in the future.
In another thread discussing Wii U support in general, Svensson additionally teased:
We’ve got MH Tri Ultimate and RE: Revelations announced for Wii U with more fun you’ll hear about “in the not-so-distant future ™”.
