Rumour: Grand Theft Auto V Was Prototyped For Wii U

We all wanted Grand Theft Auto V on Wii U, but sadly RockStar never delivered. Liam Robertson from Unseen64 says that the company did have a brief prototype up and running for the Wii U but scrapped it in the end. This was possibly due to the small user base that the console had at the time. Details are rather scarce as you would expect, but it’s interesting news none the less.

Nintendo Of America’s Facebook Page Says Splatoon Due Out ‘Summer 2015′

Update: Well, that was fast. Nintendo of America has changed the date in their Facebook status to May 2015.

This could be absolutely nothing, but the Nintendo of America Facebook page is currently stating that Splatoon is coming this summer. The European leaked listing has the game down for May 29th and the official strategy guide for the game on Amazon US has it down for May 31st. June is technically the start of summer, but May 29th is basically borderline on it. Let’s hope we get a Nintendo Direct soon to clear up any confusion regarding the release date for the highly anticipated game.

Thanks, MasterPikachu6 and someone
