Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka…

“Our intention was to release Episode 2 on Wii as well. But, there’s a limitation on the size of the game you can release on WiiWare. Because Sonic 4 Episode 2 has cutscenes, and the graphics aren’t 2D pre-rendered images – it’s all 3D – all those things together made the game too big to be released as a WiiWare title. So, unfortunately, this time we had to give up on releasing it on the Wii platform.”


That sounds like a good enough reason for me. I hope we will be seeing Sonic 4: Episode 2 on the Wii U .
