Nintendo is no longer interested in bringing SNES games to Wii U, according to virtual console developer and publisher Natsume.
Engadget reports on a pair of responses to fans from Natsume's US community manager that more than suggest the discontinuation of Super Nintendo games for the digital platform. "At this point, it's unlikely we'll see any other Natsume SNES games coming to the Virtual Console, as Nintendo's interest has moved onto other classic systems," the representative said, referencing the company's recent shift to digital releases of Nintendo 64 and DS titles. "If it's not up now, it's not coming.” Natsume's spokesperson explained that while most Virtual Console games come from outside publishers, it's Nintendo that takes on the lion's share of the work preparing them for digital release. "The titles for Virtual Console are handled by Nintendo," explained Cee-Cee. "The publisher and Nintendo discuss which classic titles would be a good fit and have the best potential to sell. Once a title is agreed upon, Nintendo and the publisher work together to bring that title to the designated system, with Nintendo doing the bulk of the work."
