Marvel vs. Capcom 2 too big for WiiWare

Sorry, WiiWare fans -- it looks like Capcom's recently down-counted brawler Marvel vs. Capcom 2 isn't coming to your beloved download platform. Responding to a forum post inquiring as to why the fighter was deftly dodging the Wii, Capcom corporate head Christian Svensson said, "This is a downloadable play, not a retail play. We don't actually have any retail rights on this project. And there's no way to get anywhere near the WiiWare file size limit here."

In other words, Capcom doesn't have the right to sell the game at retail outlets (Marvel is probably holding some rights there), nor is the game tiny enough to fit on the WiiWare service. Perhaps Marvel or Capcom, sure. But both of them? In one download? Now you're just being ridiculous.
