Wii U Gets Solid Third Party Backing
A complaint that many gamers had with the Wii was that the console lacked solid third party support for the more hardcore gamer, who felt left out in the cold, while casual gamers were treated to a plethora of good (and not so good) games. Nintendo heard those complaints and following the unveiling of the Wii U, which we covered here, a glimpse of the future was offered as well, with a line-up of the third party games we can expect to see on the Wii U.
Darksiders 2 has been promised as a Wii U launch game with Ninja Gaiden III, Ghost Recon Online, Tekken, Dirt, Batman Arkham City, Aliens Colonial Marines, Metro Last Light, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Madden and Battlefield 3 also promised for the new Wii U. Hopefully this list is only the beginning of a more diverse and expansive partnership between Nintendo and other developers.
Update: Yves Guillemot announced, during an interview with Geoff Keighley, that in addition to Assassins Creed Revelations and Ghost Recon Online, Ubisoft will be working on another title for the Wii U. More details were promised for tomorrow.
