SFIV on Wii: Never Say Never?

Illustration for article titled SFIV on Wii: Never Say Never?

Hey, doused off yet after watching Olivia in the pool? We have more unrequited tease. Capcom reminds everyone that never is a long time when it comes to Street Fighter IV's absence from the Wii.


Noting that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is a Wii exclusive, some Capcom-Unity types were wondering if that isn't proof enough that they could get Street Fighter IV to work on the console. Christian Svensson, the V.P. of strategic planning, jumped into a forum post to say "Never is such a long time."

Then everyone started trashing each other for suggesting the Wii could or could not handle Street FIghter IV, so Seth Killian, Capcom's community manager, jumped in to flesh out Capcom's position, which is to say, commit to nothing:

While not every aspect of SFIV's presentation would likely be possible on the Wii, the core elements are obviously possible. As for "never happen!"—I'd hope that if Tatsunoko vs Capcom has taught us anything, it's that we should never say never when it comes to Capcom.

I've emailed Seth to see if I can bait him into anything more. I think I'd have a better shot at talking Olivia Munn out of her bikini.
