Square Enix Announce Life Is Strange For Every Console Minus Wii U

life_is_strange_female_gun

Square Enix have announced a brand new IP ahead of this week’s Gamescom event. The game is developed by Dontnod who are the developers behind Remember Me. The publisher promises that the game will be like nothing you’ve played before and will be released as digital episodic content. However, as a blow to Wii U owners the publisher stated that it’s for everything minus Wii U. The game will come to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

But what if we now announced an entirely new IP in the official Square Enix family? What if this title was wholly different to anything we have ever attempted before, both in gameplay and narrative? What if this title was released digitally as regular episodic content, with each new chapter building and evolving based on the choices you made in previous episodes? What if we now gave all of this a name: Life is Strange?

    1. Microsoft reports $400,000,000.00 loss thanks to Xbone! So many people fired over this system. Pass on and share the news Nintenfaithful! ;)

      1. Next Tomb Raider Xbox One exclusive. Bayonetta 2 Wii U exclusive. Playstation fans butthurt.

      2. At least they have uncharted but I still want my tomb raider, microsoft why???

    2. Really? No Wii U version? Cool, I’ll just download the PS3 version and play it that way since you dicks won’t make a Wii U version.

      You wanted to save money by ruling out the system, I’ll just steal some money from you by playing the game and uploading it to a few people for free.

      1. so you want to play the inferior version?

      2. let me see…what a surprise Selina Ruiz exposed his ass, it’s 100% sure to say that she hates sasori now it’s crystal clear why he made those sexist comments, good job “evan”

      3. who the heck is Selina Ruiz? you clowns are even terrible at making fake names lol.

      4. sasorideidara obi, the puppet master, clown and destroyer :P
        “am a fan of sasori of the red sand and i will become puppet just like him”, lol

      5. Meh, whatever. There hasn’t been a thing that I’ve said to/about Sasori that I’m not proud of.

      6. Ouch… that’s even worse than this game not coming to Wii U… I’d feel sorry for the kid but nope… don’t really

      7. first, you say you are a hardcore gamer, the puppet master, clown and destroyer known as ASSorry obinna onuorah / mii and your name is evan (???). that’s not bad, but… evan???, you try to be menacing, but that name does not help you with the image you want to “show”.

    1. 3ds isn’t a console, just like your phones and tablets arent. The only consoles I’ve ever seen or heard of are immobile

    1. Yes. If Sickr didn’t post news like that, you’d be seeing one or two news article a day. Don’t blame Sickr for the Nintendo drought.

    :(

      1. Don’t ever compare the Ouya to them as it is offensive to transvestites and phones…

    1. I call Morton’s fork:

      Positive news all the time for Nintendo: Being bashed as a fanboy.

      Including negative news for Nintendo as well as positive ones: Decries of “that’s not Nintendo news”.

      Either way, there would be readers who are not satisfied even if you get your way.

  2. Are you going to post EVERY news of every game that isn’t going to be announced for Wii U?
    “Breaking News in California: No cats climbed to any electricity power today. We will keep you informed”

      1. There’s no need to publish 200 posts every day. Specially about things that aren’t MY NINTENDO NEWS. This blog should be called My Not So Nintendo News.

      1. Wow he is actually bragging about getting a console that even my maid’s son has
        While I am playing my Wii U, 4 3DSs
        And my brother is sitting next door playing his PS4 with R3500 in PSN credit
        But an Xbox, that’s cool I guess… (sarcasm)

      2. Yes, my maid, what of it?

        South Africa is so overpopulated, basically ever household has a maid, my neighbor has two, but that is a whole new story

      3. Lmao! You have a real maid? I thought that they were really only used in movies and TV shows! Lol. Do you talk to her too? Does she know what a Wii U is? XD

      4. “Do I talk to her too?” ???
        She isn’t an alien, though I suppose she is seeing as I am not sure she is even a legal citizen of this country

        But point is, I doubt she takes note of my Wii U, just like my grandparents I guess

      5. You want to do alot of things to me, but you can’t because I am protected by a screen that you cannot reach me through. :D

      6. You always sound like some horny female human sometimes that makes me sound like a pervert…

      7. Nintendo is my Blood Sasori’s name is Evan, hahahaha, we got more information about that scum

      8. Evan? Good my comrade, we are one step closer to finding out who this “sasori” really is, and once we find him… we smash his Xbox

      9. nope my name is obinna not evan.

      10. How the heck do you pronounce your name. In your videos, it sounds like you were saying “sasoriobinnanameknow” or something. That doesn’t make any sense. XD

      11. obinna, the kid with the dream of becoming a puppet, like his beloved naruto character, what a manchild!

  3. I propose a vendetta against all hostiles, it’s beginning to irritate me…

  4. God damn it! >:( The Wii U exclusives better hurry the hell up because I can’t stand this crap! For every Wii U exclusive we get we, there’s like 3 other third party games skipping. -_-

    1. Yea it is kind of getting out of hand, I don’t think any console for a long time has seen such a lack in third party support. Nintendo really needs to do something more about this.

      Almost every new third party game is not coming to the Wii U, not just a couple.

  5. i read an interesting article from a real writer and he made alot of sense. 3rd parties cant support the wii u for a reason it dont have anything to do with power. its cheaper than all other consoles, offer free online and the 1st party games every1 wants now if u add all the 3rds party games then it dominates the market so there would be little reason to own a ps4 or xcrap unless u like their 1st party which seldom do. and alot of 3rd party companies admit to fearing nintendo besides square enix has been washed up in the usa for years no since alot of their games started to suck lately. i love their handheld offerings. and was soooooo disapaointed with the direction final fantasy took :( i always was a big fan loved chrono trigger and chrono cross 2 classics unmatched in my opinion :)

    1. If that is indeed the truth then it would only have proven my opinion about all of them that they are still butthurt that our empire had around 80% or more of the gaming universe back in the ancient times…

    2. I did agree with you until you stated that chrono cross was unmatched classic. The game is just rubbish and it’s no near from Chrono trigger level. the game is more suikoden meet sliders with a very bad ending,very bad story but with very good final boss track. If I remember EA help on that game….

  6. SquareEnix is full of ***************. Nintendo made Bravely Default a big hit for them on 3DS, but they don’t manage to bring such a simple game to WIIU – esp. when WIIU is selling much better than PS4 in Japan nowadays.

    1. And also selling better than Vita and Xbox One. I’m telling ya. Its the 3rd party going after Wii U to ruin Nintendo’s image and credibility even further by not even trying to test or simply build a fucking game on it and yet blindly criticize a tech for imaginary shortcomings that they never bother to discover themselves. I’m fucking sick of this BS.

  7. *Sends in important news about where you can get the costume sets for hyrule warriors in the different stores*
    ………….doesn’t see post
    The sees yet another post about a game that isn’t coming for the Wii U…….

  8. Anyone know a release date? Sounds like a very interesting game I’ll probably pick it up for my PS4.

  9. “It’s like nothing you’ve ever played, as a matter of fact it’s so different you can’t even play it” Thats what I got out if this.

  10. it would be interesting to list the 3rd party or more precisely all the titles avoiding the Wii U this year. That’s will be a real Nintendo News and give a state of where the wii U is from 3rd Party. Obviously it will attract a lot of trolls but that would be interesting nonetheless. Here will be an original news from this blog and not just a copy and paste from another article.

      1. no way!!!! I prefer be dead rather than been seeing play an xbox 1 LOL. Again a list of game skipping the wii U this years will be very interesting, I know it would be a troll magnet but as a wii U owner I know there are games which are not comming but what I fail to release is the amount of games which won’t be on Wii U.

    1. I know now that the real Square Enix, Capcom, EA, Ubisoft, & Activision died a long time ago.*

      There. I fixed it for you.

  11. At this point in time, if the news do not directly concern the Wii U or 3DS, there should be no story about it.

    Given the example, this game not directly connected to be on the Wii U nor the 3DS, then do not post the story.

    Postings like these only causes anger, tension and disappointment. It also adds fuel to the fire for those who are just wanting to come onto the site to troll and talk trash.

    Understanding the fact that the correlation of the game not coming to the Wii U is somewhat related, but “I” feel it is an unnecessary article to even post.

    Let the other site circulate the fact it won’t be on the Wii U…..
    Then again, if that is what you are mainly looking for… so be it

  12. “What if this title was released digitally as regular episodic content.”
    Then I wouldn’t even consider purchasing it.

  13. To be honest the game still sounds interesting.
    Though a pretty dick move on Squares part seeing how the Xbox One is still not outselling the Wii U and the fact Wii U sales have increased over the past few months.

    I might get this for PS4..

      1. Not really, even third party games aren’t doing so well on the Xbox One because the 360 and PS4 versions are always outselling it… so no… it doesn’t make any sense.

        Sorry but facts ;)

      2. That doesn’t change the fact that the Wii U versions aren’t selling as well.

      3. And look how well those gimps are doing? Do we want another Sniper Elite 2 BS again, where 90% of the game is stripped and priced at full $60? I don’t think so.

      4. Need For Speed Most Wanted U would like to have a word with you. Just Dance 4 would like to have a word with you. Assassin’s Creed 3 would like to have a Wiiword with you. Batman Arkham City would like to have a word with you. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 would like to have a word with you. Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed would like to have a word with you. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would like to have a word with you.

      5. I never liked NFS since early 2000s. Bring me a new and fun Burnout game and then we’ll talk. Just Dance is another lame party game to me and its all Ubishit makes for Wii U and even the highly successful 3DS. Again, AC bores the fuck out of me and I don’t care for it. Tekken Tag Tournament? lol Are you joking? Smash Bros. shits, stomps and buries this game alive. Sonic Racing Transformed? Not sure about that game but screw it. I got MK8 which is better anyway. Amazing Spider-Man 2? Okay, look at the way that game is built and now look at 2004’s Spider-Man 2. Spider-Man 2 the game DESTROYS any and all Spider-Man games since then.

      6. Smash Bros is a completely different game. It makes NO sense to compare it to Tekken. At all. I like both games. I’m not gonna fucking choose one or the other.

      7. I’m not comparing. I’m saying its better..obviously better. Playing Tekken is almost like playing Street Fighter with stuff reaction times. Even I would choose SF over Tekken.

      8. Oh heck yes I would definitely choose SF over Tekken. I never got to play one before, but I really want SF4. :(

  14. Remember Me…
    Well, nothing of value was lost here.
    Remember Me I had to play through, because it was so bad that it was actually addicting.
    Not that excited for this, Steam sale 5€ for me.

  15. does square enix even care about the wii u? what happen to dragon quest poor sales. money enix confirmed.

  16. Hold up, I think his name really in Obinna, my search says it really is a Nigerian name

    Should’ve known his name wasn’t Evan, he looks to much like a fag to have a proper name

    Obinna is a Nigerian just without the “ian”

    1. anyway, selina ruiz said “i thin his name was evan”. i do not know how i should pronounce “obinna”, maybe it’s almost like “evan”.

  17. Sincerely? I fail to understand the relevance of a news named “Game X is going to all platforms, minus Wii U”.

    1. Sigh… No. It IS relevant because SE has put games on Nintendo platforms, but now this one isn’t coming. See?

      1. That’s a cop out excuse & you know it, Hollow. Don’t support Sickr’s bad habit. WE NEED TO HAVE AN INTERVENTION FOR SICKR, GUYS!!! He’s way too addicted to giving us news about shit NOT coming to Nintendo consoles.

  18. So this is the future of gaming? Buying them by episode so you don’t realize you’ve been paying more for a title than what you get from them if they develop a full retail game?

    Squeenix realized that DLC can only earn more if people buy them. But when you make a game episodic, gamers Will have to buy the next episode in order to advance through the game.

    I wish the Wii U was on the list of consoles but I’m not keeping my hopes up, I’m preparing for titles I know are coming.

    1. It’s funny how people start complaining about the pricing of the game when there is not a single bit of info on the pricing of the game.
      gg.

  19. Man, Square Enix straying from traditional gameplay sure did work fucking well in the past, right?

  20. Simply this is another game that demands massive amounts of Hard drive space. It is not power that is putting 3rd parties off the wii u. It is the perceived available hard drive space.

    Nintendo’s policy is games from disks. Third parties are interested in massive hard drive cloggers.

    1. Are they serious about not doing discs? This is exactly why Nintendo isn’t open for digital because as seen by the majority, they don’t like nor comfortable with digital downloads yet (DRM anyone?) plus with physical having resale value and frequent sales plus pre-owned versions as a discount, its obvious why many aren’t keen to digitals now and Nintendo cleverly knew this ahead of time.

      So if Square is avoiding Wii U for one of those reasons, they’re just as retarded as every other third parties.

  21. I must be the only one that’s somewhat sastisfied with the third party offerings on Wii U. Seriously it has nearly everything I like it has Sonic, Skylanders, Disney Infinity and Lego and some comic book games. It could be better though…

  22. Another game not coming to Wii U, and yet this site reports it, when it has nothing to do with Nintendo. *facepalm*

    1. And yet you are forgetting that Square Enix has made games before on Nintendo platforms, but this one isn’t coming to Wii U, so it IS relevant. *facepalm*

  23. Just means I won’t play it. No big deal, especially when I have over 20 games planned to buy for my Wii U, I barely have enough money as it is.

    Not supporting the Wii U only makes my game selection process easier. lololol!

  24. Well, that means Square Enix is giving us a “fuck you”. Guess what, *raises the finger* Fuck you too, not buying your games even if they coming to 3DS, I have Monolithsoft.

  25. I care nothing about this game. But I’m really starting to hate every third-party company. Every one of them are crapping on the greatest company in gaming. Nintendo.

  26. “Square Enix Announce Life Is Strange For Every Console Minus Wii U”

    Huh? I thought this was a Nintendo news site? Oh well. I must have been mistaken. /walks away

    Haha, seriously, though, this article is just trollbait. ;O Like, this site is becoming more of an international troll competition between butthurt Ninty fans and superiority complex everything else fans, and people PRETENDING to be butthurt Ninty fans and superiority complex everything else fans.

  27. I fucking hate when sickr announces this shit, if its not Wii U why in the hell put it here, you just like seeing people go mad I guess, FUCK YOU SICKR VERY MUCH.
