SEGA Clarifies “No Immediate Plans” For Wii U Virtual Console, But Doesn’t Rule Out Possibility

SEGA has clarified an earlier statement from research and development producer Yosuke Okunari that said there were no plans for Wii U virtual console. Last week, Okunari responded to a fan over Twitter mentioning there were no plans to develop any Virtual Console games for the Wii U, but he failed to mention any specific details.

“Sega would like to clarify a statement that was issued over Twitter. All options are currently on the table concerning development for the Wii U Virtual Console. Although there are no immediate plans, this does not negate the possibility and exploration of creating for this platform.”
