From developer From Software and publisher Namco Bandai Games, Dark Souls II will be released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, a Wii U version of the game hasn’t been confirmed.
Christopher Marcil recently started a petition to bring the upcoming third-party game to Nintendo’s new console. If you want to support Marcil and want Dark Souls II on Wii U, go here to sign the petition.
DARK SOULS II can reach an even larger audience by including development for the Nintendo WiiU. As of now, the game has only been announced for development on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
I can see many ways that the WiiU could benefit the game, such as managing inventory on the touch screen without having to obscure the player’s vision on the TV (the Souls games do not pause, so you must be able to pay attention at all times).
The affordability of a WiiU console compared to a gaming PC, and the free online play compared to Xbox Live fees on 360, make the WiiU version ideal for anyone who does not have or want a PS3.
