Nintendo fans won’t be pleased with this news. The upcoming Young Justice video game, titled Young Justice: Legacy, will not be available on the Wii or Wii U home consoles anymore. As Legacy might very well be our final glimpse into the Young Justice universe, that is pretty bad news. However, the game will still be available for the Nintendo 3DS.
The game developers commented about this on their Facebook page. Here is what they had to say:
We regret that this decision will prevent some fans from playing the game and the finding out what happens in the story,…There were a number of reasons ranging from quality issues to lack of retailer support, but know that we didn’t make this decision lightly. We are a fairly new company, and unfortunately both of these platforms presented challenges we couldn’t overcome.
The developer, Little Orbit, hasn’t done much in the past, so this is their first “high-profile” game (although that might be a stretch), so it makes sense that things wouldn’t go perfectly.
And honestly…I don’t think this is so bad anyway. I know Nintendo fans won’t like this….but I don’t see how a Wii or Wii U version would have been any better than the PS3 or 360 versions. I think the company made the right choice by cutting their losses. And the game doesn’t even look all that good anyway.
Young Justice: Legacy, for those who don’t know, takes place during the time-skip between seasons 1 and 2. The game’s plot is cannon, and is written be Greg Weisman himself. Most of the show’s voice actors are returning. The game will be released for the Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows on November 19.
Think you’ll buy the game? Or has the news angered you?
