Why Isn't Castlevania On eShop?

I prefer my games digital.

At least Monster Hunter is confirmed for simultaneous release.

Cause the publisher didn't want to put it there? Also, they have to pay additional fees if they want it to be digitally available. I know this one indie company said they had to pay $20,000 to put thier game up for digital download on Wii U.

What's the size of Lords of Shadow MOF?
Because I read somewhere that a single game for the eShop can't exceed 2GB.
That's probably why games like Resident Evil Revelations and Kingdom Hearts 3D aren't on the eShop, because both of those use a 4GB game cartrige.
If that's the same with castlevania, then that's probably why.

I don't think that is true, since Japan is getting Revelations on the e-Shop tomorrow.

Maybe I'm wrong then, I did remember reading that somewhere though.
