RUMOR – AE 2012 and UMvC3 Heading to Wii U?

The holiday season is here and everyone is rushing out to buy a Wii U and a bunch of Wii U accessories. While browsing through Wallmart’s offerings, you may have noticed the interWORKS Cheat Controller Clip, which allows you to clip your smartphone directly to the Wii U controller and comes with a free BradyGames cheat/strategy feed app.

What’s interesting about this listing isn’t the device itself, but the fact that the box’s screenshots show Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 artwork and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 move-lists. This has led some to theorize that AE 2012 and UMvC3 may be coming to the Wii U in the future, but right now its nothing more than speculation. The screenshots also show off a Forza 4 controller layout for the Xbox 360, on an actual 360 controller, so take it all with a grain of salt. It may just be shoddy photoshopping meant to excite an already ravenous Black Friday crowd.
