What does square-enix have against nintendo?

I'm trying to come up with reasons as to why square-enix is stiffing nintendo fans by not releasing the upcoming kingdom hearts 3 and final fantasy XV on Wii U. It's not because the Wii U can't handle it because it is capable of direct x 11 equivalent graphics.

I guess it could be because of the current installed base of the Wii U. But that doesn't really make sense because there's no guarantee that the systems it's on (ps4 and xbone) will out sell the Wii U. So the only thing I can think of is that square-enix is still bitter with nintendo over their spat that happened back in the 90s. When they abandoned nintendo for the playstation.

They seem to really like Nintendo's handhelds, at least.

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666 on Kid Icarus Uprising

Square-Enix doesn't have it in for Nintendo more than anyone else. It's just Ubisoft is the only third party supporting the Wii U right now.

I agree with you. I just went ahead and added it too for the final fantasy fans that might be here.

They have nothing against Nintendo, if you look at all the love the 3DS has gotten. SE only localized one of their Vita games, and SE made DQ Nintendo exclusive. So one game doesn't get localized when you want it too, and SE has a "vendetta" against Nintendo? Just ... no.

I'm just assuming here.

If you are developing a game for 2 consoles with nearly identical architecture it will dig into your expenses to port it over to a very different machine. They see no point in spending the extra money to sell 50k copies on the WiiU (hyperbole).
