Crysis 3 is not coming to the Wii U, for real this time

(16 minutes ago)
4

We mean it – Crysis 3 is definitely not coming to the Wii U, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli tells Digital Spy. In July Crytek hinted that a Wii U version of Crysis 3 was a possibility, but even that slim chance has since vanished.

"There has been discussions between Nintendo and EA and Crytek, but the bottom line is that there is that there's not enough business drive in it," Yerli says. "It's a business decision between EA and Nintendo. If that business decision doesn't make sense, or seems to not make sense for them, it's... not possible for us to make it. We can't publish ourselves, and that's the bottom line."

In August, Crytek general manager Nick Button-Brown had the opportunity to put down any Wii U rumors, but he hedged his phrasing, saying Crytek wasn't "currently" developing for Wii U. But if EA doesn't see money in the Wii U, that's the final nail in Crysis 3's touchscreen, NFC-enabled coffin.

When you transfer the memory from the Wii to the Wii U, does it really delete everything from the old Wii?

EA has a grudge against Nintendo... They have since Nintendo said "no" to Origin being Nintendo's online service.

I could care less either way. Not a fan of the Crysis series at all.

Yeah, the way EA has been acting towards Nintendo makes them look really bad IMO. Especially since it's not like the other systems will ever consider Origin for their consoles.

Yeah, EA's acting like a bunch of spoiled children. Not real shocking though... But I agree. Microsoft/Sony won't ever support Origin over their services. Hell, I actually see Steam being supported on consoles in the future over Origin.

Origin is crap. Noone would support it.

But EA have put other games on wii U so what's the difference here?

Nothing has been said on those other two franchises yet. And BTW Mass effect 3 is actually decent. The problem is though cause of the latest deal with the other consoles makers on the trilogy and the DLC area the one for the Wii U has be short changed there. . Other then that it's not a bad port. But that's due to a deal being made before EA pulled that stunt and decided to punish Nintendo there for it. Well more on the DLC part of it any ways.

At the end of the day... EA = jerkbags. Nothing really shocking there. Wouldn't be surprised if they change their tune a year or so down the road.

Madden is another one that bugs me. It looks fantastic but other than visuals it's a lazy port...They kept the new physics engine off the WiiU version simply "because."

To the people hoping that Nyko would release a bigger battery for Wii U that fits in the controller without adding bulk, here it is:
http://www.nyko.com/products/product...+Pak+for+Wii+U

Quote:
Keep your Wii U GamePad charged and ready for action with the Power Pak™ from Nyko Technologies®. The Power Pak is a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery designed exclusively for the GamePad and the rigorous demands of gamers. The triple capacity battery provides up to 3x the playtime on a single charge, and seamlessly replaces the existing GamePad battery for a sleek and seamless upgrade, ideal for marathon gaming sessions. The Power Pak charges using the stock AC Adaptor or Charging Cradle included with the Wii U, as well as Nyko’s charging solutions for the GamePad. The Power Pak is the ideal solution for powering your GamePad allowing you to play longer with no change to the appearance of the controller. A mini screwdriver is included with each PowerPak, no additional tools are needed to install the battery.
To sum it up, it's supposed to be 3x more charge so that you can play longer. Pretty awesome.

Wii U Virtual Console, OS Upgrades Announced
Faster loading times and new Miiverse features are coming soon.
by Andrew Goldfarb
January 23, 2013

Nintendo has announced that Virtual Console is coming to Wii U this Spring. Due approximately in April, Wii U’s Virtual Console won’t offer all of the Wii’s Virtual Console library to start, but will begin with NES and SNES games.

Like on Wii, NES games will range from $4.99-$5.99, while SNES games will run $7.99-$8.99. If you already own the game on Wii, you’ll be able to purchase the Wii U version at a discounted price ($1 for NES games and $1.50 for SNES), provided you're willing to transfer your Wii VC titles to your Wii U. Wii U eShop games will offer features including save states (similar to 3DS), the option to play entirely on the GamePad and the ability to post to Miiverse.

To kick off the Virtual Console launch and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Famicom, Nintendo also announced the Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campaign, which begins today and runs through July. The campaign will offer one game each month at the heavily discounted price of $0.30 and will include the following:
  • January: Balloon Fight
  • February: F-Zero
  • March: Punch-Out Featuring Mr. Dream
  • April: Kirby’s Adventure
  • May: Super Metroid
  • June: Yoshi
  • July: Donkey Kong
Separately, Nintendo announced that new updates will be coming to Wii U’s operating system as well as to Miiverse. Two Wii U OS updates are coming in Spring and Summer and will, among other changes, improve loading times such as those when backing out from an application to the Wii U menu.
Miiverse, meanwhile, will soon allow users to create their own communities, will expand to more than one community per game and will add the ability to filter content. Miiverse will soon be available via smartphones and PCs as well (as Nintendo previously detailed), allowing players to log in with their Nintendo Network ID to access some Miiverse features via their browser. Nintendo said it plans to eventually release some kind of Miiverse app, though no other details were given.

All of these features are coming to Miiverse “in the near future,” though specific timing wasn’t announced. Nintendo also discussed new game-specific features for Miiverse -- Pikmin 3 will take advantage of the GamePad’s camera to let players take pictures of wildlife and post them to Miiverse, and Wii Fit U will get special communities that let players gather and compare fitness notes. Both games are due in the first half of 2013.

Smash Bros, Mario, Mario Kart Confirmed for E3 2013
Expect the plumber to have a big show.
by Andrew Goldfarb
January 23, 2013

Nintendo has confirmed that the next Super Smash Bros. game, a new 3D Mario game and a Mario Kart for Wii U will all make their debut at E3 2013.

During a Nintendo Direct conference this morning, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said he’s aware that Nintendo fans have been waiting for more news on the next Smash Bros. game and confirmed that the “first screens” will be shown at E3. Iwata said development is “on track” for both Wii U and 3DS and asked fans to “wait just a little bit longer” for their first look at the ambitious sequel.

Iwata also announced a new 3D Mario game for Wii U in development from EAD Tokyo, the team that previously developed Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Super Mario 3D Land. Iwata said the game is an “action game” and will be playable at E3. On top of that, Iwata revealed that a new Mario Kart game is in development for Wii U as well, and will also be playable at the show.

This is the first official confirmation of a new Mario or Mario Kart game for Wii U. Smash Bros., meanwhile, was first announced way back at E3 2011 and last year Nintendo confirmed that Namco Bandai will be handling development.

No specific names were announced for any of the games, but expect to find out more when E3 takes place in Los Angeles between June 11th and 13th (just over 138 days from now if you’re counting).

Fire Emblem Crosses Over With Shin Megami Tensei
No, you haven’t died and gone to RPG heaven - this is actually happening.
by Audrey Drake
January 23, 2013

It looks like the characters of SEGA, Capcom and Namco won’t be the only ones crossing over for a Nintendo system in the near future. In today’s Nintendo Direct, it was officially announced that Atlus and Intelligent Systems are working on a crossover project for Wii U featuring the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei franchises.

The thematic trailer shown doesn’t give away much, but it does feature Fire Emblem characters such as Marth from the original game, as well as very SMT visuals. As for Nintendo’s partnership with Atlus on this one, company president Satoru Iwata commented that as development of games grows larger and larger, “Nintendo cannot use the same approaches we have in the past.” Iwata also hinted that the company has “many more partners,” ones that will apparently be revealed sometime soon (perhaps in future Nintendo Direct broadcasts).

New HD Zelda Revealed for Wii U
This isn't what you saw at E3 2011...
by Richard George
January 23, 2013

Nearly two years after it unveiled an HD concept at E3 2011, Nintendo has revealed its early thoughts and visual direction for The Legend of Zelda on Wii U.

Franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, citing the scope and ambition of this new project, declined to do a full unveiling of the Wii U Zelda entry, but provided some insight into his team's mission. In essence, Nintendo is "rethinking the conventions of Zelda." Ideas like dungeons needing to be completed in order, and Zelda adventures being single-player only, are being set aside as the team focuses on "returning to basics." The goal of all this, Aonuma said, was to create a reborn Zelda - and more details on this will be shared as the game comes together.

But that wasn't all Aonuma revealed about his new Zelda endeavor. He shared Nintendo's new visual approach for the game, which is completely unlike the HD demo shown at E3 2011.

Zelda art styles have ranged from the dark, gritty realism of Twilight Princess to the wide-eyed, cartoon antics of Wind Waker. Setting Skyward Sword as a halfway point between those two extremes, the Wii U Zelda looks as though it strikes a balance between Skyward's smooth yet mature style and Twilight's level of detail. The result is something that is absolutely stunning, bringing a vibrant, bold and nuanced style to Zelda. It's unlike anything you've seen the series attempt.

Aonuma noted this style developed as his team experimented bringing Zelda's many graphical styles into HD. The producer said over time something entirely new and unique evolved. His samples showcased Wind Waker's Windfall island environments, which were immediately recognizable and yet felt entirely different. What's more interesting is what a return to Windfall Island might mean for the series. Assuming this environment is indicative of the direction of the final game, could we be seeing Zelda return to that era of Hyrule?

There are many questions - and it seems as though we have a while to wait. No release window of any kind was provided for this new game. But for now, we have a brief glimpse of the HD future of Zelda.

Zelda: Wind Waker Remake Headed to Wii U
GameCube’s prettiest game is getting an HD makeover - and it's coming sooner than you'd think.
by Audrey Drake
January 23, 2013

Wii U owners will be playing an HD Zelda game in just a handful of months

No, really.

As officially confirmed during today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, an HD remake of GameCube classic The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is coming to Wii U this Fall. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata noted that the game was meant to help ease the wait for the next big Zelda game (which was also revealed today and has no release estimate in sight).

See you soon, Jabun!

The game will give players the option to play entirely on the GamePad, and will feature both upgraded graphics and Miiverse integration. Nintendo also plans to tune up the original experience, though precisely what changes that might entail is a mystery at this point. On the visual side of things, the game definitely retains its core visual style, but with the addition of some noticeable visual flourishes (such as enhanced lighting to lend the cel-shading a more vibrant, dynamic look).

For more on Link and Zelda’s first steps into the world of HD, keep it here on IGN in the months to follow.
