SoulCalibur II HD not for Wii U?

Soul Calibur II gets an HD re-release. But of course this will only appear on Xbox360 and PS3, not on the Wii U. At least nothing has been announced yet. Which is really disappointing. I consider the GameCube version of SoulCalibur II as my favorite fighting game, the fighting mechanics are awesome, Link was a really good character (at least imho) and the excellent Weapon Master mode is the best and most enjoyable singleplayer experience, which I've ever seen in any fighting game.

I don't have a Wii U, but it would be one of the first Wii U games, I'd buy. The GameCube version was pretty successful, probably because Link was in it. However, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (which also had lots of Nintendo extras) bombed completely on the Wii U, which is probably why Namco is resistant to make more games for the system. It's a shame really. I was also hoping that SoulCalibur V might appear on the Wii U with a new Link cameo, but this doesn't seem to be the case either.

Nintendo really, really needs to get the Wii U going or otherwise it will miss more gems like this.

They have failed to make the Wii U more appealing. At least they have finally admitted the console has problems, but ... admiting a problem is only the first step to solve it.
