Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will not be appearing on the Wii, neither as downloadable content or in a retail release, according to a post by a Capcom insider at the Capcom Unity blog.

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.”

1UP.com reports that the WiiWare size limits top out at approximately 40 MB, significantly less than the couple-hundred MB size of MVC2. WiiWare does offer N64 games, but those only reach about 32MB. [Via Joystiq]
