We got some more footage from the Batman Arkham City Wii U version. This time though, it’s an off screen video feed, so we really get to see how the controller works. We also get to see some of the new features and controls specifically tailored for the Wii U version. The Wii U version of Batman Arkham City will be the best looking yet, according to a screenshot comparison between the PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions. The official title of the game is “Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition”, and it’s set to be a Wii U launch title later this year.

    Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition could be one of the best Wii U launch titles this Holiday season. Time for me to fatten my piggy bank and purchase this game and the U.

    Now I wish I had gotten a job right after my high school graduation. I want all these awesome Wii U games while I’m at college. It appears I might have to miss out on a few, but better late than never. 🙂

    So far, I want the following in no particular order –
    1. Super Mario Bros. Wii U
    2. Pikmin 3
    3. ZombiU
    4. Call of Duty Black Ops 2
    5. Batman Arkham City
    6. Watch Dogs

    but that’s just the beginning. There are unannounced 3rd party games for the Wii U, and many guaranteed future first-party titles. I also want to get 3 pro controllers.

    I wonder what the Pokemon Wii U game will be like.

    • Parker

      Thats a great list bro 🙂

    • Chris

      Pokemon Wii U might be likely because most Nintendo Consoles apart from NES and Colour TV, I can see it happening. Pokemon Stadium 3 in HD? Yes please!

  • Parker

    Must buy.

  • Shankovich

    It just makes me smile to see these kinds of graphics running out of a Nintendo console :’)

    • Alienfish

      Agreed, and according to another recent article, this is just the tip of the iceberg. I can’t wait to see what this console can REALLY do when developers get the hang of it. And then there’s Smash Bros. Oh man is that game going to look awesome!

  • Wii Who

    Since I haven’t played this yet for the PS3 or 360, I’ll be waiting and grabbing it for the Wii U 🙂

  • SanPharaoh

    I will be getting this game, and plan to make a few playthrough, walkthrough vids of my own, but I was somehow underwhelmed by this dudes gameplay. Either that, or I don’t know what it is or why, but something was missing from this…imo.

    • Chris

      Cool, sounds awesome.

      I’m going to be doing a few walkthrough videos myself on Mass Effect 3: Take Back Earth for Wii U and ZombiU

  • Chris

    Darn it! I already pre-ordered the Wii U, ZombiU and Mass Effect 3: Take Back Earth… now I want this ;w; and Pikmin 3 and Nintendo Land (Which I hope comes bundled with the Wii U)

  • Greg

    wouldn’t it be nice if the movement of in game was proportional to the movement of the real life movement. I see the person moving controller around a lot more than in-game movement is showing. Can you say gimmick

    • T13char

      I’m sure there’s a sensitivity setting for that though.

  • Shankovich

    @Greg , I hope you know what a geomagnetic sensor is…as you can see in the video, the controller’s viewpoint moved faster than what was on the TV, and it wasn’t skipping (geomagnetic sensor + gyro). So yes, it is proportional (didn’t you see the panorama demonstration???). I don’t know if you’re here to just bash us, but please, if you are, get your facts straight; otherwise, you’ll probably fail any essay/thesis you’ll ever have to write.

  • mega164

    looks great im getting it

  • T13char

    I’m still debating. Whoever has played this and like it like, of you didn’t like then the unlike. I’m not sure on how I like the game.
