Young Justice: Legacy no longer coming to Wii or Wii U

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 00:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Little Orbit has confirmed that Young Justice: Legacy is not coming to Wii and Wii U for “a number of reasons”.

“Based on several factors we’ve had to cancel the Wii and Wii U versions of Young Justice: Legacy,” the developer wrote in a Facebook post.

“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 apologised and said it is looking forward to the release of the 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions in “less than a month”.

It’s the first time we’ve had a release date for the Warner Bros. RPG, which is based on the Cartoon Network series. The game forms a bridge between the first and second seasons, and drops November 19.

Little Orbit is also behind an upcoming Mistborn game.

Thanks, Shack News.

    WiiU is a massive failure. You need to bring thousand Zelda’s to save it from purgatory.

    Really, Nintendo needs to put more focus on having their specs on par with Sony and Microsoft. They don’t need to have all the same bells and whistles like plugging into live TV or even having Netflix, but they need to be capable of playing the same games that are on that latest consoles by Sony and Microsoft so they can get multiplatform games, and they need the simple, straightforward multiplayer functionality for people to play games together.

    After that, they need to keep the basic control scheme the same as what people know, both so that gamers have a familiar format to fall back on, and so that developers don’t have so much trouble putting games on the system and knowing what to do with the controls.

    Lastly, they need to have one major new game for all of their major franchises on the system within the first few months. Unlike Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo has world-famous first party IPs, which means that as long as they don’t really screw up the games (as in, as long as they don’t pull an Other M), they have a built-in launch title lineup that their competitors can’t possibly match.

    Nintendo is assuming that they can’t compete with Sony and Microsoft in the ways that they are absolutely required to compete with Sony and Microsoft, and that gimmicks will save them. Best case scenario if they stick to their current approach, they get a great idea that Sony and Microsoft copy to steal away the demographic Nintendo had thanks to Sony and Microsoft also having tons of other media and game options for the money that Nintendo doesn’t have. Worst case… well, Sega.

    Let’s bring the SNES 2 and pretend the last ten years never happened :)

    They could easily develop a new console and not many people would care it’s replacing the Wii U too early. Apple releases a new iPhone/iPad every year.

    I don’t think they need to match the specs on the XB1/PS4, they just need to create consoles under $200. Look at the 3DS, the specs are inferior to the Vita. The 3DS started selling really bad at $250 (<– PRICE TOO HIGH), but when they dropped the price to $170 (accompanied with good games) it boosted sales to the point that it's currently killing everything in sight in Japan.

    @3: The only reason 3DS manages as well as it does is that there’s no real competition for Nintendo in the handheld market. Sony is technically there, but it’s the only one, and it’s never really been their big focal seller; Nintendo’s always been the dominant company for handhelds all the way back to the first Game Boy.

    By contrast, on the console market Nintendo has to compete with both Sony and Microsoft, each companies that surpassed Nintendo as the dominant presence for console video games. This makes Sony and Microsoft, not Nintendo, into the bar that all console companies must rise to and surpass in order to remain a viable company in the console market. If only Sony or only Microsoft existed, then MAYBE Nintendo would have a chance at being competitive merely by being cheap enough. But with both of them, there’s no way unless Nintendo decides to go so cheap that they turn into the Tiger Electronic Games of the console arena. But at that point, they’re already one foot in the door toward joining Sega, which had a “console” a couple years back where all its games were pre-loaded on the system and no new games could be added, a minor step up from those plug-and-play games.

    @4 – So if Nintendo just had to compete against Microsoft or Sony, they would be selling well? I disagree. The Vita is only competing with the 3DS and it’s selling poorly.

    Consoles/handhelds must strike the perfect balance between performance, games and price to be successful. Example: I’d pay $50,000 for a BMW. I would pay $25,000 for a Toyota. I wouldn’t pay $50,000 for a Toyota.

    I’ll pay +$300 for a XB1/PS4 and I’d pay $200 for a Wii U… I wouldn’t pay +$300 for a Wii U.

    Also the Wii U has been poorly marketed. I haven’t seen a Wii U commercial since 2012.

    #5 1 year ago

    @5: No, I did not say that. Having a slim outside chance of being competitive is not the same thing as having a guaranteed chance at selling well.

    Nintendo is the dominant force in handhelds, ergo Nintendo sets the bar. Sony isn’t competing on Nintendo’s terms, therefore it’s not doing as well. Likewise, Nintendo isn’t competing on Sony and Microsoft’s terms when they’re the dominant force on consoles, so Nintendo is doing poorly. And unlike on handhelds, the consoles have the issue of multiplatform; Sony and Microsoft having games that both systems can run due to similar enough specs and control schemes but that Nintendo CAN’T get because they’re a generation behind and too gimmick-focused for their controls puts Nintendo at a severe disadvantage.

    @6 – If Nintendo sets the bar in handhelds, why was the 3DS doing so poorly prior to the price drop?

    It’s all about the performance/price/games balance. It has nothing to do with who sets the bar. If the Vita launched at under $200 with great games, the handheld market would be different.

    I personally don’t think that having three major consoles running 80% of the same games is good for anyone. I rather have Nintendo become a 3rd-party console developer than have them make a Wiibox or WiiStation.

    #7 1 year ago
  8. salarta

    @7: Because it cost more than people were willing to pay (same reason PS3 did poorly in the beginning) and if you broaden the market from handhelds to mobile in general, Nintendo isn’t really able to compete with cell phone games.

    You’re oversimplifying a complex situation down to being exclusively about the price. That’s not all there is to it. There are multiple problems with Nintendo’s strategy. Not matching the bar set by Sony and Microsoft isn’t Nintendo’s only problem, it’s just one of the problems they have, but it’s the biggest one.

    Three consoles running 80% of the same games not being good for anyone as a consumer has no bearing at all on the companies business-wise. The simple fact of the matter is that if you’re faced with Sony and Microsoft having 15 multiplatform games that people really want to play, next to Nintendo having 5 console-exclusive games people want to play, people are going to get one of the two systems that have more of the games they want to play. People aren’t going to buy a system that has less of what they want unless they’re diehard fans of those specific games, and in many cases they’d have to be such huge fans that the idea of paying $250 just to play that one game with a big maybe for anything else they’d want to play in the future would be acceptable to them.

    Nintendo is on the path to irrelevance as a console maker. Unless they stop pretending that gimmicks and a low price will make up for not having the games people want to play, they’re going to become Sega. I am entirely serious when I say that I can see them reduced to a third party video game and peripheral maker for Sony, Microsoft and whoever replaces Nintendo by the next generation if Nintendo doesn’t get their act together. They’d still be in the handheld market, of course, but not consoles.

    @8 – I respect your opinion but I don’t see Nintendo creating a system as powerful as the XB1/PS4 with a comparable network.

    Maybe they could make a cheaper system geared towards indies… SNES 2.

    this is bad news again. it’s just sad. don’t know what more there is to say. wiiu is an enjoyable piece of hardware but the mainstream doesn’t seem to bite.
    i was sure that it would u turn by the end of this year and during 2014 and then have 5 more great years with awesome games. i still hope for that but it doesn’t look good.
    nintendo needs to: pricedrop pricedrop dricedrop,bring the zelda metroids, make awesome bundles, limited edition wiius like the zelda one AND throw money at third parties so they will port games like darksouls 2, evil within, destiny (!) etc. a competitive price would be 199€ or less. if that isn’t working because it’ll make them loose too much money, they should silently close the doors, support the wiiu for 2 more years, let it go out with a bang by making some true masterpieces for it – would help their reputation, compensate the fans and would at least be a huge $#% U to anyone who didn’t pick one up :) and then bring the next thing. they should definitely use this gen to expand on their take on social online. miiverse is great, it’s different enough and fun. it really is well thought out and suits nintendo well. they should finally bring 3ds in as well, unify the accounts.

    A $200 Wii U with a line-up that includes Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario 3D World, Smash Bros, Monolith “X”, Mario Kart, New Zelda Game, then possibly Star Fox, Metroid, F-Zero, and Animal Crossing wouldn’t sell?

    #10 Are you actually for real? Destiniy, Evil Within and Darksouls 2 would never sell on Wiii U, they did have a good amount of third party support in the begininng but the sales were poor, so nobody’s ever gonna support it. The demography who wanna buy a Nintendo console for a third party game has seriously long past. You could’ve requested that 5 or 6 years ago, but it’s too late now, Nintendo will have to release a 1000 Zeldas in order to save their Wii U.

    I’d say either go third party or fire Reggie and build a true next gen system for 2 eyes with a real controller before it’s too late.

    @18: the nintendo early adopters / wii u owners are for the most part pretty well informed gamers actually. while cod´s, fifa´s etc. wont sell on the wiiu i think games like destiny ds2, evil within would :)
    i´d personally pick those for the wiiu eventhough i do own other consoles as well. dark souls plus miiverse would be ace!

    i also don´t believe nintendo machines need more power. the wiiu´s specs are great. very nice looking games can be made for that machine. a powerhouse console is not what nintendo is about. i wouldn´t want a nitendostationX1. the wiiu specs are great for third party games as long as ps3 and 360 do still exist. in 3-4 years it would be time for a new nintendo console.
    i hope they go for a handheld/homeconsole hybrid next time.

    There’s absolutely no problem with the exclusive games the WiiU has. It’s just a shame the console has always seemed like a total waste of money.

    I think for most “informed gamers” it has always been seen as a half step into the next gen. We all saw that their Online portion was still severely lacking, the pad was gimicky, it didn’t offer much over the current gen and it couldn’t offer what the actual next-gen could. Not to mention the launch price of the console.

    I don’t see why any “informed gamer” WOULD buy this unless they have a love for Nintendo franchises. Which is kinda how it’s played out so far with little change in sight… other than it possibly getting worse.

    #19 Nintendo are making it harder and challenging for the developers to make games to a console where the demography is vastly different to the others with a console where you need 4 eyes to play a game. Mass Effect 3, Madden 13, Zombi U, Tekken just to name a few never sold on Wii U, because that demography already had a X360 or PS3, it’s not 2006 anymore, that time they would have had a chance. So if you’re planning third party support then you have to have it very early on at launch by releasing them all simultaneously to get the demography but Nintendo failed to do that so nobody’s ever gonna support it again. You have to talk to the publishers and developers very early on to hear what they think and declare how it works and what your plans are. If you’re making a console and just saying you should make games to it, without anyone knowing about it, then nobody will ever support it. If you’re making a game like Destiny to a console where the controller, online and hardware infrastructure is vastly different to all the others then you would have to start all the way from the beginning in order to make the game to it, that’s why the games either turn bad and that nobody will support the Wii U.

    I think salarta and pcbros are both right.

    For salarta, I agree that people will buy the system that has the 15 multiplats over the 5 exclusives. It’s just basic math that you get more games.

    But I’d combine that statement with pcbros general point that I’d only pick the 15 games if the system offering 5 was comparably priced. If Ninty released a console with 1/3 of the games, but at 1/3 of the price ($150-200) then a ton of people would bite. That’s still basic math, but a massive change is pricing would help them push consoles.

    And back to salarta, Nintendo would then have to avoid the Sega issue of releasing a toy instead of a console. A super low price point would cause some confusion in the market, so they’d need to work on marketing (which is worse than Sony’s marketing, if you could believe that).

    @24 – Good points.

    I’m a Nintendo fan and I’ve owned every Nintendo console before the Wii U. So I ask myself, why didn’t I buy this one? Are the games horrible? No. Is the performance horrible? No (it’s a big improvement over the Wii). Is the price too high? Yes.

    That’s my opinion and at the end of the day, these are all opinions.

    again, as a stand alone console the wiiu isn’t the best choice and it never was intended to be that / ok, maybe for the very dedicated nintybots ;). it’s not only about having “love for nintendo franchises” though, which has been kinda proven already with great exclusives like sonic, w101 and probably with the upcoming bayonetta and games like scribblenauts where the pad really shines.
    the 4 eyes argument is just pure bs prof and confirms that you haven’t played much on the wiiu. believe me, 2 eyes are more than enough to handle that bad boy :)

    the pad is not a gimmick. it improves many games a lot. miiverse alone is worth the pad.

    “I don’t see why any “informed gamer” WOULD buy this unless they have a love for Nintendo franchises”

    if you think of it as your one and only console, no, i wouldn’t buy it. but if you want great gaming experiences that you just cannot get on pc or on any other console, y’know, because you just love videogames, especially good ones, then yeah, any informed gamer should invest in one asap….but it would help if it would be cheaper
