Despite the Resident Evil remake from Capcom being a Nintendo-exclusive back in 2002 for the Gamecube, the HD remaster of the title won't be coming to the Wii U console. This has caused an uproar of fans who have eagerly been waiting for the remaster to relive the Gamecube days. The long-awaited HD remaster of the game was announced earlier today for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

As mentioned, fans are upset that the Wii U won't be receiving the title. Could Capcom have something else in store for Nintendo's latest console? It's possible, but it's safe to say that Wii U is most likely going to remain a first-party system without a decent amount of third-party support. Over the past year and a half, Nintendo has ultimately failed to generate sales for the system. Developers like EA and Ubisoft are slowly and steadily pulling the plug on the system, but could Nintendo turn this around? It's doubtful, but anything is possible when it comes to the gaming industry.

Yesterday, it was reported that Satoru Iwata, the current President of Nintendo, is responsible for the current financial situation Nintendo is suffering from. This is because the Wii U isn't selling and as mentioned earlier, third-party developers are giving up and not even bothering with the system. If Nintendo wants to gain more third-party support, they'll need to do something drastic and revolutionary. Could Nintendo pull off what they did in 2006 with the Wii? Only time will tell.
