Wii U Handles Ports Easily

There are a few games coming to Wii U that are ports of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games. It is apparently very easy to port games to Nintendo’s upcoming console. Games from current gen systems, including Mass Effect 3 and Batman: Arkham City, were originally released in 2011 but will re-release on Wii U later this year. Because it’s easy to port games from current generation systems, do you want to see more arrive on Wii U?

First Footage Of Arkham City For Wii U

Batman: Arkham City was announced for Wii U during last year’s E3. The footage that played then was from other consoles and not the Wii U. Warner Bros. announced that Batman: Arkham City – Armored Edition will be coming to Wii U. Check out the first video of the game for Wii U above. Warner Bros. promises that the game will make use of the Wii U GamePad and there will be new content in this editiion for Wii U.

Future Batman Arkham City DLC Incoming

Batman Arkham City, which is due to be released this year for Wii U, will be receiving some form of downloadable content in the not too distant future. Arkham City director Sefton Hill spoke with Geoff Keighley about the subject and was told “There’s still some more announcements coming. There are more exciting things to come.” Who knows, maybe the DLC will be released with the main game when it arrives sometime later this year on Wii U.
