Call of Duty: Ghosts Coming to Wii U

Other Activision IPs Coming Too

The Wii U has been thrown something of a lifeline by Activision. The likes of EA and Warner Bros may be losing faith in the console, but the recently self-bought company has pledged their support to Nintendo’s machine by confirming the year’s biggest shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be coming to the Wii U in addition to other current and next-gen machines.

The Wii U will also be getting another five Activision titles this year, the most noteworthy of which is the next installment in the Skylanders franchise, Swap Force. Angry Birds Trilogy, Angry Birds Star Wars, SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge and Wipeout Create and Crash (based on the TV show rather than Sony’s anti-grav racer) are also on the release slate.

Wii U Going on UK Demo Tour

The Wii U is coming to a shopping centre or expo near you so you can have a go for yourselves. Having played the new console at E3 and Gamescom and we’d urge you to try it out before splashing the cash on the next-gen machine that’s turning out to be a little bit more expensive than we thought.

Batman Arkham City: Armoured Edition (Wii U Hands-on Preview)

Wii U versions of core multiplatform titles are going to play a big part in the console’s future. Nintendo wants to compete directly with Microsoft and Sony this time rather than settle for a casual market. The Wii versions of regular titles always felt like poor ports, so what better way to convince gamers you’re serious this time around than starting with one of last year’s biggest action titles, Arkham City.

Our hands-on demo begins during the Ra’s Al Ghul section of the game where Batman has been poisoned and he’s tracking down a ninja to try to find the antidote. This session served the purpose of showing us a broad selection of the unique Wii U features.

ZombiU (Hands-On Preview)

If ever a console needed a title to appeal to regular gamers rather than small children and fitness-obsessed parents it’s the Wii U. After the relentless shovelware from the original Wii, Nintendo have a lot to prove to get us onboard.

It’s not a great start for Ninty at Gamescom 2012, as they couldn’t even be bothered turning up in first-party form. Thankfully Ubisoft have stepped up -hot off the heels of a hella-strong E3 showing- to get gamers onboard, with Rayman Legends and the much bloodier ZombiU.
