Last night, Capcom confirmed the game would appear on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network this summer. Responding to complaints from upset Wii fans, Capcom VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development Christian Svenson claimed, “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 filesize limit here.”
