Capcom has explained why there's no Wii U or Nintendo 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

During our interview at recent press event in Madrid, Capcom's product manager Matt Walker stated that it's due to the game engine chosen for the sequel, first answering why the 3DS - the format on which the original Revelations was a timed exclusive on - was missing out.

"[For the sequel], we ended up using MT Framework [not the same as MT Framework Mobile for 3DS]. This locked what platforms we could use: we can't output MT Framework on the 3DS. And because we're working on MT Framework, we ended up saying 'ok, we're moving to new-gen too', so that kind of locked the platforms we're putting our game on."

When queried on the situation with the Wii U, Walker responded by saying it was still a hardware issue.

"Because we ended up expanding on the new-gen hardware, that then limited us to what we can do as far as hardware we can work on."

The first digital episode of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will release next week on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
