Injustice: Gods Among Us launched yesterday in North America on Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A free-to-play iOS version of the fighting game was released on April 3rd, and players who download it will be able to unlock content for two of the three home console versions. According to Siliconera, although it includes unique features like off-TV play, the Wii U version of Injustice: Gods Among Us doesn’t support the unlocking of content via the game’s iOS variation.
Published by Namco Bandai Games, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch launched in the West earlier this year, exclusively for the PlayStation 3. It was, however, ‘too difficult‘ to localize the Nintendo DS version, titled Ni no Kuni: Shikkoku no Madōshi, which saw release in 2010 – but only in Japan.
Apparently, a Namco Bandai Games executive stated that his company wasn’t opposed to the idea of bringing the PlayStation 3 version of the role-playing game to Nintendo’s latest handheld console. Would you like to play Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on your Nintendo 3DS? Or do you wish the game would instead come to Wii U? Let us know in the comments.
SEGA confirmed today that Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer heading to Nintendo’s latest console. In a statement provided to IGN, the publisher said the Wii U version of the first-person shooter has been canceled and it’s development has been ceased. When it was released in February for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Aliens: Colonial Marines received very negative reviews. The Wii U edition of the game was said to be even worse than the other versions, but now we’ll never be able to confirm whether that rumor is true or false.
“SEGA can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development.”
Capcom’s senior vice president, Christian Svensson, has reassured that the Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations should launch at retail and the Nintendo eShop. The survival horor game will be released in May on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. If you just can’t wait to play Resident Evil: Revelations, purchase the original edition from the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS for only $19.99.
Will this be on the Wii U eshop on the day it comes out in retail …
Christian Svensson: It should be digital day and date with retail on WiiU and PS3. For PC in North America, it’s already digital only. :)
When asked last week whether Unreal Engine 4 will work on Wii U, Epic Games co-founder Mark Rein laughed as he replied ‘no.’ Rein says that the reason he laughed was because the question ignored other current-gen consoles, like the aged Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. On Twitter today, Rein said he’s sorry if he offended people with his comments regarding Nintendo’s latest console. Are you offended by Rein’s comments? If so, do you forgive him?
Yesterday, Capcom announced that NES classic DuckTales is getting a remake. DuckTales Remastered is being developed by WayForward Technologies, and it’s coming this summer to three home consoles – PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360. Were you hoping to play the game on your Nintendo 3DS or PlayStation Vita? Unfortunately, you may be out of luck, as Capcom’s corporate officer, Christian Svensson, confirmed that the publisher ultimately decided the game will not arrive on handheld consoles.
I have both handhelds and was wondering why not put the game out on both 3ds and ps vita?
Christian Svensson: Sorry but we could only do “so many” platforms and portable formats were not in the frame this time around.
