Konami Reconfirms Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 Will Not Come To Wii U

castlevania_lords_of_shadow_2_debutWhen asked on Twitter whether there will be a Wii U version of Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, series producer Dave Cox reconfirmed that the game will not come to Nintendo’s new console. Castlevania Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate, on the other hand, launches exclusively for Nintendo’s latest handheld, the Nintendo 3DS, on March 5th in North America and March 8th in Europe.

  1. Konami is making the mistake of putting Castlevania on the 3DS, but luckily, they are not mzking the mistake for the Wii U. The Wii U is an underpowered baby console, and the manliness of Castlevania would destroy it.

      1. really? well i guess isde by side comparisons of games on the wii u 360 and ps3 are wrong, seeing as they show that the wii u version looks better.

      2. The 360 and PS3 use parts that are not even manufactured anymore (exclusing the companies that make the console. I could easily build a PC that is just as powerful as the 360 for next to nothing, and Microsoft is charging you $250-$300 for it. LMAO Wii U is a new console that uses newer tech. Therefore it is more powerful. Even the weakest of Radeons current chain of GPUs demolishes the chips inside the 360 and PS3. Get over yourself. lol

      3. It’s also worth noting that if cellphones start getting more powerful than a game console, it’s time for new systems. (FACT: iPhone 5 is more powerful than the 360)

      4. Yes! I love it when the truth is told! sony n ms are bitchmade, throwing money at developers to give Nintendo a hard time. This will backfire badly, AGAIN! Nintendo fans need 2 keep their heads up, and prove that GAMERS/Buyers make the fucken rules and devs better get their shit 2gether. All we need 2 do is STOP supporting devs that sell out for money. Japan is always on the cutting edge years ahead of america, and thats why some devs hate Ninty, because they are their own publishers lol. I will NEVER again put money in sony or ms pocket fuck them. I will stick 2 Nintendo and pc.

      5. You’re calling me the Nintendo baby when I love PS3 as well
        You’re assuming that just because I like nintendo, I’m a nintendo fanboy
        Dude, it’s not opinion, it’s fact that the Wii U is more powerful than the 360 and PS3

      6. HAHAHAHAHAHAH the most powerful console in the market you gonna kill me oh HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    1. You do realize Castlevania has appeared on Nintendo consoles before and was where it started, right?

      Moronic troll. Begone with you.

  2. Main reason I’m not getting a wii u. Sure first party games are great, but it’s severely lacking in the third party department.

    1. They’re current gen games. The Wii U won’t get all the current gen games that are coming out. It should get a lot more support when the next gen games start.

    2. so you think the first party games are great but are completely skipping the system because of multiplats that aren’t being made for it. great logic

  3. Now is my turn to say that i give a damn if it comes or not played the first and it was linear and repetitive.

  4. haha not a big deal i mean seriously that game is just a copycat of other games not to mention the quicktime event extrabaganza

  5. Doesn’t bother me one bit. All these “big” third party games that aren’t coming to Wii U are mostly games that i’m not planning to get anyway.

    1. The only games i want from third parties are mostly indie title like fez, minecraft,from dust, the xbox live ninja game that i forgot his name,trials evolution and many many others.

      1. For me it’s Aliens, Rayman, and Watch Dogs if a Wii U version is announced.

      2. Ubisoft is a great suporter of all consoles watch dogs have great chances of being on wiiu

  6. This is good news. Lord of shadow was a pile of plagiarizing shit that did nothing new it even went as far as straight up ripping off Shadows of the colossus.

      1. It’s funny how people think you’re some stupid English/american Guy , but in reality You speak two languages and are most likely clever than them … lol.

      2. I am american but it seems that im not god enough for them even though i made my efforts to try to learn there language,so much racism is almost painfull for real.

      3. Were you born in the U.S. or did you immigrate to there from another country? Please explain.

      4. Please don’t feel that way about all Americans in general especially not being heckled by some of the butt-heads on these forums. I for one feel bad people made you feel that way.This country really does need to pull it together on the respect side!

      5. is the minority thats realy racist, did you know about the the broadway evento in wich 2 black suposed preachers where in front of teather saying that latin people have place in heaven? Havent they been treated the same way before.

  7. That is Bullshit. I like Darksiders 2 better on my Wii U as well as Batman Arkham City on my Wii U, both of which I have on PS3 and Xbox 360 respectively. I prefer all these 3rd party games on the Wii U. Bayonetta will crush this Castlevania, down with them.

    1. Yeah, I think it’s just that Konami knows Castlevania can’t compete with some of those other titles coming soon. So it would be a waste of time porting it, just to see it get washed out. And yes Bayonetta 2 would/will destroy Castlevania!

  8. Money grabbing assholes. Take advantage of that 3DS installed base lol. If it were this time 2014 , they would put it on cus there would be 12M installed base….

    I’m gunna predict that this time next year , third party support will increase dramatically for wiiu , Whether it be enhanced ports of ps3 and 360 games or Slightly reduced 720 and ps4 games….

    1. Uh…If they were money grabbing assholes, it they would put the game on as many platforms as possible. Wrong again, Nintedward.

      1. Actually , there is a thing called Risk assessmant. I’m saying Konami don’t think there is enough people on wiiu to justify porting the game over. AkA Skimping the fuck out . Like EA are doing with Crysis….

      2. EA is a horrible company , I’m sure it was just a swift ”fuckoff” from Nintendo….

    1. Take a despues breath….better? What you need to know is that wen the ps4 and 720 get out they will suffer the same for almost the same time.

      1. Not likely. Unlike the Wii, XBOX 360 has a RIDICULOUS 3rd party support, as did the original XBOX before it. XBOX 360 got EVERY exclusive multi-platform game that came out after it’s release. Because a) developers saw the widespread success of the original XBOX, and 2) XBOX Live was a HUGE hit.

        Wii sold a lot of consoles. The vast majority of that was, as we all know, “casual” gamers. Hell, my 31 year old brother, who never used to even play video games EVER, bought one. But he played it like once a year.

        That is NOT an attractive market to devs who make games like Castlevania, DOOM, Call of Duty, Skyrim, etc.

        Because it’s not how many consoles you have, it’s how many games (and what TYPE of games) the people who own the console buy.

      2. Widespread success if the original XBox? Yeah right? The PS2 kicked that thing’s sorry ass!

  9. Yet another AAA title that will be skipping the Wii U this year.

    With Wii U dev kits being available as early as 3rd quarter 2010, it’s no longer a question of whether devs had enough time to port games over to the Wii U (after all, weren’t there a bunch of dev companies saying how quick and easy it is/was for them?), but rather a matter of them actually just skipping the Wii U for a specific reason. My guess is because the cost far outweighs the units they’d sell on the Wii U, since software sales for the Wii U are pretty terrible at the moment.

    Either that, or they are just waiting until the Sony/Microsoft consoles are done to see not only how much more powerful they are, but also what new advancements THEY will present, so as to ascertain which tech is best to invest time and money on.

    Wii U’s tablet is a good idea, sure. But what if Sony and/or MS are able to top it with something different? Or at the very least, release a console twice as powerful with the same size screen? And use their already huuuuge 3rd party support and proven online infrastructure?

    There’s no doubt that XBOX 360’s huge 3rd party appeal and XBOX Live’s ridiculous success (aka the most successful online console platform) is definitely more attractive than Wii U’s right now. The next XBOX can only stand to improve upon that.

    Nintendo is in serious trouble, I think. One glance at the anemic “Confirmed 2013 Games For Wii U” list doesn’t really do much to convince me otherwise, either…

      1. Of course you did. Nintendo-only fanboys CAN’T read anything that isn’t absolute praise for everything Nintendo does.

        Just like Nintendo can’t ever get anything right with real gamers these days because they REFUSE to see what REAL gamers (i.e. people who play games other than just Nintendo games) want by looking at other successful consoles.

        You’re just as dumb and hopeless as they are.

      2. Total fanboyism. He or She actually brings up a few good points. How about you read it first then make a comment that is at least half intelligent? I’m not hating on Nintendo, but there has been a few issues for the Wii U that they need to address asap.

      3. “How about you read it first then make a comment that is at least half intelligent?”

        You mean like you do in every post? LOL
        Most of the post was retarded. If someone disagrees with you in a post you automatically call them a fanboy. It shows your maturity.

      4. “Blah, blah, blah. Total retardation.”

        You responded to a completely logical post with that and I’m the immature one? Lol k. Believe what you want buddy, but right now, you really sound like a blinded fanboy.

    1. Simple answer is that third party core titles (especially multiplatform games) do not sell on Nintendo platforms, just look throughout history and see for yourself. They’re not going to bother if they know Nintendo system owners are almost always a bunch of sheep only buying first party games and nothing else.

      1. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Stop being a bitch. Your mother has disowned you. Don’t make do the same.

      2. This is your response to an actual valid point that is provable by facts? 3rd grade insults?

        Wow. Way to prove us wrong about how immature Nintendo fans are.

  10. This to me suggests that they will lose money on this title and they will make another title for Wii U. If that’s wrong then Konami are not thinking right at all.

  11. Ha. We’re not missing much,the first one was crap as well. Just like all Castlevania games after Symphony of the Night.

  12. Oh well it’s not that big of a loss. I hate the stupid alternative universe that Konami created with Lords of Shadow. I’m in love with the original NES Castlevania games and think that their stories were perfectly fine without having to be redone in another universe. It’s kind of like what Marvel did with the Ultimates universe. I liked the Ultimate universe at first but in recent years I’ve grown sick of the stupid storylines and miss out on the original ones. I hope Konami will eventually get rid of the Lords of Shadow universe and go back to making games like Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin, and Order of Ecclesia just to name a few.
