Skullgirls for Wii U 'isn't looking likely' without increased console sales, dev says

Skullgirls, Zero Lab Games' downloadable fighting game, could come to Wii U, but only if the console's sales and "digital presence" improve, according to a recent tweet from the game's official Twitter account.

The news came in response to a question asking if there were "any chance of a wii u [sic] release with this generation coming to an end."

"Right now a Wii-U [sic] release isn't looking likely," the tweet reads. "If sales pick up and they establish a digital presence it's possible, though."

Skullgirls is available for consoles through Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, and the developer recently announced Eliza, the game's third downloadable content character.
