Wii U Vs PC Multiplayer Featured On Nnooo’s Cubemen 2

cubemen_2

Joystiq is reporting that the Wii U eShop game, Cubemen 2, will feature online multiplayer as a few eShop games have already. What makes this particular game unique is that it will be the first game to allow Wii U owners to also play against people playing on PC, Mac, and Linux as well. This is an interesting breakthrough, especially for Nintendo, who is notorious for lacking online support a lot of the time. The game has no price yet on the Wii U’s eShop, but on Steam it’s already available for $7.99.

This isn’t the first game to feature cross-platform play as Monster Hunter 3 allowed for 3DS and Wii U owners to battle it out. But it is the first to allow for multiplayer gaming against non-Nintendo systems. Could this be the start of a new trend this generation? Would you like to see more eShop games with this feature? Or better yet, full games with cross-platform multiplayer? Sound off in the comments!

    1. Microsoft is the only one who has a problem allowing it beyond Final Fantasy XI and one other game, I think.

      This is why we see cross-platform functionality between PC and PlayStation, mainly. Good to see that Nintendo platforms are getting in on it too.

      I doubt we’ll see a day when Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo will allow cross-play between the three of them though. At least, not any time soon.

      1. As far as I know, it has to do with some type of fee to get a service on Xbox Live (the same reason why you need and Xbox Live Gold account to use stuff like Netflix and Facebook).

        I believe that is why PS3 players got a Steam code for Portal 2 when they bought that version, but not Xbox users.

        1. It’s not so much the fees (which are also a factor) but the fact that Microsoft likes to have a closed network, strictly controlled or lorded over by them.

          Third party games with cross-play, or MMO’s can’t really have all that going on to be efficient, so Microsoft doesn’t like to work with them. It’s why we see more MMO’s, games with cross-play, and free to play games going to other platforms.

          1. Yes microsoft has a closed network with live but its weird for a company that has an OS widely used by computer company to have such a network. Seems like something apple would have.

    1. Valve was gonna do it with counter strike go but microsoft refused if i could recall. So then it dropped the cross play with xbox/ps3/pc.

  1. So both the PS4 (the most awesome and Powerful gaming console) and the Wii U ( the most epic and innovative console) can do Cross-Platform Play yet the Xbox One can’t?… Microsoft is the next Sega ;)

    1. PS4 players vs WiiU or co-op play in monster hunter 5, now that would be epic. Leave the Betamax, VCR cable box out of this. They xboxone owners will have to pay again just to multi-console game with us lol.

    2. Is there actually any cross-platform game coming to PS4 neither? If you have to pay for online gaming it’s propably more closed than it was on PS3.

      I’m very happy about cross-platform between Wii U and PC for this game because then there can actually be players online.

    1. Well I say it is genius for gamers but from the business point, probably not. Think about it. Everyone will be buying games for console with free online than the online that required a fee.

      1. That doesnt make any sense though. Whats stopping them from buying a console with free online right now? Because the games dont have cross play? They’ll just have their own matchmaking pool, is all.

  2. Yes, I think it would be an excellent idea if all game’s multi-player servers could be connected together. It would certainly make for some amusing situations; Nintendo fans vs Playstation vs Xbox vs PC….. charge! :D

          1. This is a reference to an anime that have reference to the bible. The anime is called Neon Genesis Evangelion and the name is basically sum up the the bible references. It is a sci-fic anime show. I don’t want to spoil what it is about.
