With the announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Wii owners were left to face the fact that the title would not see a release on that system. Capcom had provided an initial explanation as to why that decision was made. Now, however, the company has provided further information.

“No, don’t blame Marvel. Blame the economics of retail. We’ve opted to not negotiate those rights because the economics don’t make sense, nor does it dovetail with what we feel works in the digital-only space.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

Footage begins at about 4:20…

These images come from the latest episode of Pokemon Sunday in Japan…

In spite of the sales of some of the more core, mature titles on Wii such as MadWorld, EA is still a believer in that type of market. Glen Schofield, VP and general manager of Visceral Games, admits that Dead Space: Extraction “is an experiment” for the company, but that they are “confident” that the game will perform well.

“I’m confident – it is an experiment, but there’s going to be 50 million Wiis out there by the time the game comes out, so if you only hit 2 per cent of the installed base you’ve got a huge number. I don’t know – there have been some already, Resident Evil and House of the Dead, that have done really well, so we’re pushing for that 80-plus-rated game, and that’ll put you in the top 5 per cent of all Wii games… because most do not have a great score…”
