Hint: it might be about their download services.

Capcom Corporate Officer/Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson explained why Capcom's Marvel-based fighting games have yet to hit Nintendo systems.

A fan on Capcom's Unity forums asked why the popular Capcom fighting games had yet to appear on any of Nintendo's systems, whether as retail titles or downloadable games. The answer Svensson offered is as follows:

"It's not some sort of spite thing. It's just that on current generation consoles, the most sizable base of active digital consumers has been on the X360 and PS3. Bear in mind, this game was green lit more than a year ago when I did the deal with Marvel."

Svensson, however, made the statement that future downloadable game projects will indeed be appearing on Nintendo systems. "Don't worry though, on some future unannounced Capcom projects, Nintendo platforms will get digital love from us."

Sad, but not surprising. Hope things change in the future on the 3DS and Wii U. It sounds like that's the plan at Capcom.

Only "some"? That's not really very reassuring, and not really any improvement over the Wii situation as far as I can tell.

Some is better than none.

Also, the word "some" sounds like a PR cover-our-asses word. I wouldn't be too worried about it at this point. That could mean anything without any real context.

When the company includes 12 characters on the disc that need to be purchased, you know they intend to milk as much money for DLC as they can.

If it makes anyone feel any better, I spent a lot of time at E3 in the Capcom booth. I talked to a few execs and producers.

Marvel vs Capcom was a topic of discussion. So was the fact that it had yet to appear on a Nintendo system. And the the fact that I would be there Day 0 for a UMvC3SSE U.

So if when this game comes to Wii U, I will be taking 75% credit for it happening.

The other 25% goes to me for getting him to E3 in a timely and safe manner.

So if this game DOESN'T come to Wii U, I guess you guys get 100% of the blame?
