3rd party support was something that Nintendo majorly lacked during the lifetime of the Wii, and even the GameCube. Many major titles came and went on other platforms, but Nintendo got very few of them. Now, things look to be better for the company, as major publishers have announced popular titles for Wii U, including Batman: Arkham City – Armored Edition and Scribblenauts Unlimited.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
The Wii U version of Batman: Arkham City, dubbed the Armored Edition, is more than just a simple port. Puzzles in the game have been changed to make use of the Wii U’s GamePad; for example, some puzzles now require you to use the new batarang, which can be controlled using the GamePad’s motion technology. In addition, this new version of the game features exclusive armored suits for both Batman and Catwoman, which allows the use of “BAT mode;” when fighting in combat, the BAT meter will rise, and will allow you to deal more damage when filled completely. Batman: Arkham City – Armored Edition includes all content from the recently-released Game of the Year Edition, and will be released this holiday season.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
Scribblenauts Unlimited was also announced for Wii U, as well as Nintendo 3DS. The game includes a story mode, as well as a brand new multiplayer mode where you and one other person can play together, provided you both have Wii U GamePads.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
