A couple of days ago Reggie Fils-Aime [The President of Nintendo America] posed a few questions as to why Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV weren’t to be released on the Wii. Chris Kramer [communications director for Capcom], has answered these questions, stating that both games were developed for high definition games systems.

“Both ‘Resident Evil 5‘ and ‘Street Fighter IV‘ were designed for high-definition graphics systems using Capcom’s current in-house engine called MT Framework. To get ‘RE5? or ‘Street Fighter IV’ out on the Wii, we would have to create all-new versions of both of these games, which is something we’re not opposed to doing. So the intention of both ‘RE5? and ‘Street Fighter IV’ was to go for graphical showcases, which is not what the center of the bullseye Wii is aiming for. However, we do have a lot of ‘Resident Evil’ action happening on the Wii and hopefully we will have more in the future.” – Chris Kramer

Talk about leaving the Wii owners high and dry, “So the intention of both ‘RE5? and ‘Street Fighter IV’ was to go for graphical showcases, which is not what the center of the bullseye Wii is aiming for.” It’s pretty much stating that the Wii has bad graphics. Your thoughts?

  1. Capcom is being realistic.

  2. I’d agree. The Wii doesn’t have what it takes graphically, so why would Capcom even bother? Wii owners are lucky they have Dead Rising, etc.

  3. I don’t think it is mean. It’s honest. Nintendo chose to go the route they did, and they’re losing out on the multiplatform love for these AAA titles. Resident Evil 5′s graphics with Resident Evil 4′s controls? YES, PLEASE!

  4. If you’re picking and choosing controls, would you not go with something you can at least move and shoot at the same time with?

  5. Saying the Wii could go without one of the fastest and best selling games of all time is an utter shame.

  6. The Wii does have bad graphics. Come on guys, let’s not beat around the bush. It’s a Gamecube with motion controls, it’s infinitely less powerful then both of the other systems and Nintendo did that on purpose to keep the costs down.

  7. I would think this is common sense.
