Because 3DS has mass appeal, but Wii U owners have demonstrated repeatedly that they will not buy 3rd party games even when they are released for Wii U, optimized for the console, and are outstanding games.

The 3DS isn't getting Ultra Street Fighter 4 either. It didn't get Arcade Edition before that either. Capcom probably needs to focus its teams on where they will do the most good.

Not sure how many times people will say this before they realize it's completely wrong.

Anyway answer is: There wasn't really an install base initially for the Wii U. The numbers weren't strong, so these developers saw little reason to put time into the console if their bottom line wasn't even obtainable.

For instance: Call of Duty didn't do well on the Wii U console because:
1) There isn't many people on the Wii U
2) There are more consoles out there that are more popular with this game.

Eventually, 3rd party developers will come over (similar issue happened with 3DS). Might be some time though, maybe by 2015ish.

3DS got a version because Nintendo paid Capcom to do it. It was honestly a joke of a port and only the most stupidly die-hard fan would think its worth owning.

Wii U isn't getting a version because there is no version to base it on. 360, PS3, PC and arcade versions are all based on AE, which is based on SSF4, which is based on SF4.

Why make an entirely new version when for all other versions they are merely adding and tweaking to an already existing game.
