Injustice: Gods Among Us Wii U edition delayed

Monday, 15 April 2013 16:50 GMT By Dave Cook

Injustice: Gods Among Us publisher Warner Bros. has confirmed that NetherRealm Studios’ brawler has been delayed on Wii U.

It’s not exactly a mind-shattering delay though. It was supposed to launch this Friday April 19, but now the Wii U edition will launch a week later on April 26.

CVG adds that no reason has been given for the delay. We’ll update if we hear more.

Are you getting the Wii U edition? Let us know below.

    Yeah, I’m getting the Wii U version for off-TV play. But I’ll be picking it up on time cause as far as I know, the US version is set to be released Tuesday along the PS3 and 360 versions.

    @1 First Rayman, then Aliens Colonial Marines, now Injustice?! I’d hate to own a Wii U. Its really not looking good for this system mate.

    Just seems like wishful thinking for any third party title to get released for his dreadful console.
    Nintendo most definately hvent drop the ball this time have they… sigh!

    Then to top all this one nicely we got PS4 and 720 coming to put thefinal nails in the cofin once and for all. Damn..

    To be fair ACM got cancelled, so Wii U owners dodged a bullet there :D
    As for third party support, i don’t see it lasting.

    @2 Rayman being delayed was not a big deal. I’m glad Aliens Colonial Marines got cancelled on Wii U. And like I said, this is just in Europe. The US is still getting the game on time for Wii U….so I don’t see where you’re going with that.

    If those are you’re reason for thinking the Wii U is a dreadful console then you’re an idiot…..awww man Aliens Colonial Marines didn’t come out! That game sucks ass. Why would I buy that trash on my Wii U? I know dumb PS3 and Xbox 360 fans did.

    You know Batman Origins, Deus Ex, Resident Evil Revelations, Need for Speed, Watch Dogs, Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, are all out or coming to the Wii U. You’re overreacting to a 1 week delay.

    And before you right off the Wii U, you know a new 3D Mario, Zelda, and Mario Kart are launching this fall for Wii U? The Wii U will easily outsell the PS4 and Xbox 720 this fall.

    @4
    Of course the Wii U will outsell two new next generation consoles, and while we are at it PS Vita will become the best selling handheld of all time, trumping DS and 3DS. I really hope your being sarcastic.

    @5

    I didn’t say all time sales, I said this fall. Reading comprehension isn’t your strong suit is it?

    I’m not being sarcastic. The Wii U will be the cheapest console out of the PS4 and Xbox 720. The Xbox 720 is DOA in Japan at launch. And Nintendo will have more system sellers this fall. Not to mention, I know a large amount of people who fell spurred by the Xbox 360. The RROD did not do MS any favors. Many people will take a wait and see approach with MS new console due to that.

    Mario Kart, new 3D Mario, and Zelda. The Wii U will outsell the PS4 and Xbox 720, as far as worldwide. I’m thinking there will be supply constraints as well with the PS4 and Xbox 720.

    What the fuck is actually wrong with the Wii U. Constantly either something isn’t coming to the console or multi-platform games get delayed on the system.

    At least there is some titles like Deus Ex doing it right but I’m seriously concerned about the WiiU.

    @Francis
    You do know that many anaylsts and gamers believe Wii U is current gen (PS3, Xbox360), that the Wii U is what should have launched in the place of Wii and.even Epic Games laughed at Wii U being next gen. Of course Wii U will outsell in that predicament because as you said shortages, short period of availability and takes long for some gamers to transition from current gen to next gen.

    @2 learn to type proper English before spouting shit.

    Nintendo haven’t dropped any ‘ball’. The Wii U was always going to be a hard-sell to gamers and 3rd party publishers alike, I have every faith in Nintendo however.

    I’ll just sit and wait for the next fucking cretin that states ‘ I can’t wait to play Zelda on PS5!!!111!!!’

    bollocks, if you want to play a game buy the system it’s for.

    Also, why does it matter what ‘gen’ it falls into? Nintendo did the right thing by releasing a console that sold 100 million, don’t you think?

    @8 Legendaryboss

    You do know that many anaylsts and gamers believe Wii U is current gen (PS3, Xbox360), that the Wii U is what should have launched in the place of Wii.

    - Wait, analysts like Michael Pacther? Because what he says is right all the time. The Wii U is next gen because of when it was released. Not the power of the console. Go look up the definition of “generation” or watch this video here.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2i0ONtVtfk

    -And looks up the term “Monday Morning Quarterback” in regards to your Wii U should have been the Wii statement. Nintendo made millions on Wii, they played it right.

    Of course Wii U will outsell in that predicament because as you said shortages, short period of availability and takes long for some gamers to transition from current gen to next gen.

    - That’s what I was saying, your the one who said this:
    Of course the Wii U will outsell two new next generation consoles, and while we are at it PS Vita will become the best selling handheld of all time, trumping DS and 3DS. I really hope your being sarcastic.

    @10 mine isn’t collecting any dust at all, it’s been busy playing Batman, Tekken, Nintendoland, Darksiders and Lego City.

    Myself, like others are pretty sick of the Nintendo flaming going on particularly on this site, I own pretty much every console going – does this make me part of the ‘NDF’ (lolz) or does that just make me a gamer un-bias to what gaming platform to choose, I must admit, I’m pretty tired of the random dislike aimed toward Nintendo – who cares? If you aren’t buying one for whatever reason (you don’t believe Nintendo make core games, the SNES was the last good system, Nintendo raped your Mum – whatever it may be) if you’re that vocal about them take it to a Sony or Microsoft thread where your comments will make you look like some kind of comedy Messiah – here? You just come off as a prick. So the Wii U hasn’t taken off (yet) we can all see that asshat – no need to keep stating what we all see – much like the running commentary on the opening of a crisp packet, it’s unnecessary.

    #13 2 years ago
  14. Francis O

    @13 yeah, I agree. It will take off, people, especially on this site, are flaming the hell out of Nintendo for no reason.

    If you’re not going to buy one, that’s cool, but what is the need for the consistent trolling of people who do enjoy it.

    @9 No Nintendo got lucky by selling a console that got 100,000 plus sales. The real thing they should have done was released the Wii U as the Wii and save the gamepad with a screen for next gen. They would be on top of the world if they had done that.

    #15 2 years ago
  16. Francis O

    @15
    There is no way could predict that. That means there would be no Wii Sports. And that was one of the main reasons the Wii took off.

    Not to mention, what about price? The tech inside of the Wii U in 2006 would have been expensive as hell.

    #16 2 years ago
  17. dreamcastnews

    @15, speculation. It’s 100,000,000 sales not 100,000 – you could put one hundred thousand down as blind luck…. hundred million? Not so much, the Wii was a fantastic extension to the Gamecube’s vision, Nintendo were pretty much pot-less by the time the Gamecube failed, so they made a GC 1.5 with a new control method (not a gimmick, an actual legitimate change to the industry) and thus the Wii was conceived and to be fair, it was bitter sweet for a Gamecube fan like myself watching everyone flood back to Nintendo with essentially, a reworked version of their previous hardware. I don’t see anything wrong in what Nintendo are doing – why should we forget what we already know? There’s plenty of Nintendo games that don’t rely on graphical prowess and we’re moving toward an era where the independent developer is king, fresh ideas are winning more critical acclaim than graphical beasts of yesteryear.

    Nintendo have the right idea but they’ve hit many teething problems in the process making them look pretty foolish – don’t forget, they’ve been doing this before we were born and I’m sure they know in the long run how to play this one out.

    You know, I just found out you can’t even unlock the iOS outfits in the Wii U version. Why would anyone buy that version when it’s clearly inferior to the others?

    Oh wait, I know. Nintendo fanboyism.

    Just like the thought that someone will buy a Wii U over a PS4 or a 720. If someone wants to stick with a current gen system, they’ll buy a PS3 or 360, because that’s where the games will be.

    The Wii U would have been successful if it had launched two years ago. Now? It’s going to be a Gamecube level flop. Maybe even a Dreamcast one.

    And I say that as someone who loved the Dreamcast. But Nintendo’s only options in a couple years will be to either 1) focus completely on the portable market, where they are leading 2) drop the Wii U completely and try to compete with Sony and Microsoft with an actual next-gen system or 3) become a third party publisher. That’s it. Period. Point blank.

    And no amount of Francis dancing around in his rose-tinted Tingle outfit will change the facts.

    #18 2 years ago
  19. theevilaires

    @16 you clearly are misunderstanding what I’m saying. they could have matched specs with PS3 or 360 very similar and still did Wii Sports and motion tech. How is that hard? The gamble was on motion controls not graphics. they went with last gen graphics because it was too much of a risk to do costly next gen GPU and motion control back in 2006. So they cut their lost and sacrifice graphics for new type of game play. Now in 2013/14 release the Wii U that matches PS4/720 graphics with the Wii U pad.

    Thats all I’m saying. We all know why Nintendo went with last gen graphics in the Wii so its not speculation or we didn’t know. The risk was all about motion controls and it paid off very well. The risk was not graphics. Now they’re playing catch up with graphics in the Wii U…..get it air brain.

    @17 I just skimmed over your BS* but thats pretty much what I was trying to say and I meant 100 million not thousand.

    @18
    Clupula, you’re about as dumb as Michael Pachter. Nobody is dancing around in rose tinted lenses. You’re saying Injustice Gods Among Us is the inferior version because of unlockable iOS outfits? Really….did you just say that? Injustice Gods Among Us is better on Wii U because of Off-TV play. I’ll take that over iOS outfits.

    Just like the thought that someone will buy a Wii U over a PS4 or a 720. If someone wants to stick with a current gen system, they’ll buy a PS3 or 360, because that’s where the games will be.

    - People buy Nintendo systems for Nintendo games. You can’t play Mario, Metroid, Zelda, Xenoblade 2, Bayonetta 2, The Wonderful 101, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart, Star Fox, or any of Nintendo’s excellent first party games on the other systems. So I think the sales of Nintendo’s games prove that point. Give Nintendo time to release their big hitters, you’ll be lining up the old rehash BS when Nintendo is selling a lot this fall.

    The Wii U would have been successful if it had launched two years ago. Now? It’s going to be a Gamecube level flop. Maybe even Dreamcast one.

    - Thank you for telling me the future, to bad you said the same thing about the 3DS…. and you’re ass was wrong. Wii U’s been our for 5 months, give it some time. Not to mention, the Xbox 720 is DOA in Japan, good luck selling any units there.

    And I say that as someone who loved the Dreamcast. But Nintendo’s only options in a couple years will be to either 1) focus completely on the portable market, where they are leading 2) drop the Wii U completely and try to compete with Sony and Microsoft with an actual next-gen system or 3) become a third party publisher. That’s it. Period. Point blank.

    - In a couple years, when the Wii U is doing really well, I’ll come back and say I told ya so. Graphics don’t make or break a console, games do. The Xbox 720 and PS4 could have graphics better than a 3000 gaming rig, but without a bunch of games, it wouldn’t sell.

    You’re the worst kind of troll, the Michael fortune telling VG247 Pachter troll. Start pulling BS and telling the future, GTFO dude.

    @Francis
    Good grief, brutal much?
    Unfortunately i don’t think you take your head out of Nintendo world and look at things from a broader perspective, making your points very Nintendo infatuated. IGAU is not better because of off screen play, thats just personal opinion. The fact that the Wii U sells because of Nintendo games shows the lack of third party support. Third party support is what a console needs, you can’t survive on the same franchises you need diversity or else it becomes very boring at some point.

    @19

    I have to agree with Francis, you’re a fucking idiot, mate. You passively troll all Nintendo articles then call other people’s responses bullshit? It’s clear that you only have one functioning braincell that you obviously use to poke Nintendo players with a stick, in fact; sod this… Why don’t you fuck off back to your Xbox/PS3/PC/Ouya you out and out cumgullet.

    Nobody cares for your stupid analyst-styled rants about what ‘should’ have happened. Nintendo sold 100 mill Wii consoles, it was a GC blah blah they couldn’t make a motion based 360/PS3 competitor, you know why? NO FUCKER WOULD BUY IT, like the Gamecube before it! It’s all based on keeping the cost down, PS2 was £109.99 by 2006 so £180 didn’t seem too steep for a new Nintendo machine… If it was 360 graphic level it’d be £250-300 easy mode, you’ve heard of penetration pricing, I presume? Pretty much all the trollbase of VG247 wouldn’t since Nintendo ‘rehash’ the same games and you clowns seem to call yourself gamers after all.

    EDIT : Dreamcast didn’t flop, Sega ran out of cash and resources, no cash + no marketing = a ‘bubbling’ product with zero public perception, hence why most incorrectly label it as a competitor for the N64/PSX

    So Injustice Gods Among Us is better on PS3 and Xbox 360 because of unlockable iOS outfits? Sorry but no.. you have you’re opinion, which is cool. But Off-TV play > iOS outfits.

    My points are not Nintendo infatuated, you guys are just anti-Nintendo. I’m not bashing the PS3 or Xbox 360 in any of my posts. I just defend the Wii U from trolls. Nintendo makes some of the best games in the business, I’m well aware third party support is needed.

    Injustice Gods Among Us is coming to Wii U right? So that’s third party support. Batman, Splinter Cell, Watch Dogs, DuckTails, are also coming to Wii U. As well as Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101.

    Nintendo’s first party offerings are going to be far more diverse than Sony’s and Microsoft’s. If you don’t want Mario, Get The Wonderful 101, Zelda not you’re thing, get Bayonetta 2. Not big on Pokemon? You can get Xenoblade 2, or Pikmin 3, or Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem.

    The PS4 and Xbox 720 are going to host a million first and third person shooters, just like the PS3 and Xbox 360. The Wii U will have plenty of variety. There’s nothing wrong with liking or defending the Wii U. I have a good gaming PC and I’ll be getting a PS4 at some point. I’m going to get to play what I want. So if the Wii U’s third party support dies in the future, it’s not like I won’t be able to play the games that don’t come to the system.

    @Francis I never said it was better on PS3 and Xbox360, you continuously put words in my statement. Clupula said that about IOS unlockables. I just said that Off screen play does not make Wii U the best version.

    I am not anti Nintendo, i am just looking at things from a broader perspective which does not translate into Anti Nintendo, i like Nintendo offerings (Mainly Pokemon, been a bit lax in picking up new titles on DS). The Wii U is being compared to PS3 and Xbox360, so compared to that third party support it does seem lacking. Nintendo offerings aren’t more diverse than Sony’s personally but with MS yeah.

    While your statement about FPS and TPS might be true, there will be different offerings like Knack, Driveclub, The Witness and Watch Dogs so it won’t necessarily be dominated by one genre.

    Well I think Injustice is superior on Wii U because of Off-TV play and MiiVerse. But that’s my opinion.

    It’s not a fair fight if you’re comparing the Wii U to PS3 and Xbox 360. Those systems have been out since 2005 & 2006.

    But if you want to compare Sony’s games to Nintendo’s I do not mind having a friendly debate on diversity some day.

    I think with the games Nintendo has announced so far, and are currently out on the 3DS and Wii U. It’s hard to say anybody beats Nintendo on Diversity of IPs.

    Sony and MS are shooter factories, we all know that. Nintendo is more platformers, action, and RPG.

    The PS4 will have diversity, but come on… don’t mention a simulation racing game like Driveclub. Games like that are part of the problem. Just like shooters. Knack looks ok…. but the game SEEMS like a tech demo for Unreal Engine 4.

    I’m not big on puzzle games, but I know The Witness is going to be cool. And yeah I agree, Watch Dogs is going to be cool. I’ll be getting that on Wii U.

    I’ll get a PS4 at some point, Probably when they announce Mass Effect 4 for it, however, if the game comes to Wii U as well, I’ll get it on that and hold out on a PS4. But it’s EA so it’s probably not.

    I’m not into shooters that much, so all the complaining of 3rd parties skipping out on Wii U doesn’t phase me. I buy Nintendo systems for Nintendo games. PS3 and Xbox 360 host the same boring ass shooters every year.

    @25 – Please do point to me saying the 3DS is going to be a failure. I would love to see you bring that quote up from me.

    Go ahead, Francis (which whenever I hear your name, I imagine the fat guy who still lives with his rich parents in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, so whenever I type your name, it’s in the mocking voice of Paul Reubens).

    Anyway, off-tv play doesn’t mean anything. Why would anyone even need that? I don’t play portables and I don’t need a console that can’t decide if it wants to be a portable.

    You’re missing out on DLC, on unlockables, on pre-order bonuses, on trophies/achievements, and it’s the system that will have the smallest community, so you won’t have the variety of people to play against you’ll have on the 360 and especially the PS3 (since that’s where fighting games tend to sell the highest)…and yet, because of your Nintendo bias, it’s the best version because you can play it on the toilet.

    Come on, Francis (once again, remember how I say your name). There hasn’t been a superior version of any game for the Wii U. Deus Ex might be it, because of the revamped bosses and integrated DLC, but that isn’t out yet, and is still probably missing trophies/achievements.

    And if you think that the only games on the PS3 and 360 are first person shooters, then you haven’t spent much time looking at what the systems have to offer, especially the PS3, where shooters don’t sell as well as the 360, and JRPG’s, fighting games, and experimental titles thrive.

    @26 I’d count Need for Speed Most Wanted over Deus Ex, I have a sneaking suspicion they may mess it up….

    #28 2 years ago
  29. Clupula

    @26 – Mmmm. I dunno. Admittedly, I know nothing about racing games. No interest in them whatsoever. Need for Speed. Forza. Gran Turismo. Midnight Club. Whatever that other one is that looks exactly like Need for Speed when I see the trailers. No interest. It could be the best version of all time and I wouldn’t know. Never understood racing games, outside of WipeOut, and that’s only because you get to blow up the other vehicles and play super aggressively.

    #29 2 years ago
  30. dreamcastnews

    @29 yeah I get that, I’ll only play Forza because it’s super easy to win and the handling is what I’d consider the best mix of sim and arcade but any others would be a hard sell to me point A to point B seems awfully dull.

    WipeOut is an exception due to it’s audio/visual prowess.

    NFS is meant to be a beast on Wii U but I don’t fancy the on/off digital triggers for racing games……

    Maybe it’s because I’m a New Yorker and I have no interest in driving real cars when there are perfectly good subways here, so playing a pretend car doesn’t really do anything for me.

    Clupula, you’re a troll dude. iOS outfits don’t make a game better sorry. And I don’t care about the community aspects. I don’t want to pay for Xbox Live, and nobody I know is getting this game on PS3.

    For me, Off-TV play is a big deal, I don’t give a shit if you don’t like portables or not. Go online and look at how many people say Off-TV play is a big deal. One of the biggest features of the PS4 is being able to play you’re games on the PSVita. A lot of people are exciting about that.

    And I don’t give a shit about trophies or achievements. I have a life outside of games. I don’t have the time to collect every one anymore. I did that shit when I was in college.

    Yes, the PS3 and Xbox 360 are shooter boxes. Look at the best selling games for both systems. All freaking shooters. GTA, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Uncharted, Killzone, Resistance, Halo, Gears of War, ect.

    #34 2 years ago
  35. Clupula

    Hahahaha…just came back from my local Gamestop. Being I’m in a major metropolitan area, my Gamestop’s sales are usually a good gauge of how well a game is going to sell, as I saw with both DmC and Ninokuni.

    Anyway, there was quite a line there. I asked the guy behind the counter and it was probably 7 PS3 copies for every 3 360 copies were reserved.

    And they did not get a SINGLE pre-order for the Wii U version.

    In fact, when the guy there asked if anybody was getting the Wii U version, half the line laughed.

    You can tinkle yourself over Nintendo all you want, but this game is going to be yet another nail in the third party coffin for the Wii U.

    Anyway, looks like my pre-order bonus has installed (wouldn’t it be nice to get that on the Wii U?), so time to go play. Have fun playing with yourself, Francis. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    What? I take back saying you’re dumb, you’re actually retarded. What was the jumbled mess you call a post?

    I haven’t read all the comments but I have to agree that it’s almost a no brainier that the WII U will flop. The WII had a novelty something people had never used before and people bought it like hotcakes. But the majority NEVER bought any games which is hard on companies.

    The WII was overpriced but got lucky it was novel so in the end the price was right for Nintendo, but as some had said the WII U should have been launched in place of the WII.

    Nintendo does deserve to be flamed because they are making many silly mistakes. They got lucky with the WII so fix your shortcomings. Bring the WII U out last, if you unwilling to match the PS4/720 power make it close, go out of your way to make sure third parties are supported, make sure the platform is easy to develop for.

    They did none of that and it silly considering they had the number 1 selling console and could wait until last. At this point we know that their sales are slower than expected and when companies such as DICE makers of BattleField 4 (which I think will usurp or at least take a huge chunk out of Call Of Duty soon because BF3 was incredible with insane DLC support) comes out and straight up says the WII U is not powerful enough and we are not supporting it. That’s a heavy blow, it tells consumers two things, the system is not as good as the next gen coming out even if you know nothing of specs and 3rd parties don’t really trust sales on WII U and have no problem walking away from them, which is harsh. And once one does it, it’s easier for others to follow which should scare WII U owners.

    So far the PS4 looks like they have done the best to clean up their huge mistakes with PS3 and will be the console to watch, they literally went to 3rd party developers and said what should we do to make this thing better and easier for you to make the best games on and then they (supposedly) did it. Removed load times from streaming, instant sharing, reduced load times from disc based games, instant connection to friends games, standardized development, direct support for 3rd parties, highest specs with standard parts, I’m impressed. I believe that’s why Microsoft delayed the 720 announcement until next month because that is a hard act to follow, but hopefully that will make MS come out of the gate strong too.

    “But the majority NEVER bought any games which is hard on companies.”

    Lower tie-ratio than 360/PS3 but more Wii units sold meant more software units overall sold. There is an argument that it was mainly Nintendo software which did well, but not one that people didn’t buy games on the Wii.
