Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara was released last month to several other platforms. It was supposed to be released on Wii U as well, but the release date came and went with no word from Capcom as to why the Wii U version was never released on the eShop. Capcom has now revealed that the game will be released on the Wii U in August and it was delayed for “unexpected dev issues.”

The game is a compilation of two great Capcom games, including Dungeons & Dragon’s Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara. Both were released in the ’90s, so it’ll be great to see these titles re-released as a set for a new generation. Will you be picking up this title? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Justis Bistawros

    Ashley you need to write an article about Wii U being the second best selling console in Japan thanks to Pikmin 3, who’s the best selling game in Japan this week.

    Please report this great news.

    • JeanPaul Badjo

      Yup. Almost tripled sales. Went from 8k to 22k and let’s not forget that the game has only been out for 2 days out of the week, so net week can be even better. Also Pikmin sold 92k in only 2 says and that doesn’t even include downloads.

      • e_rocket

        Great news, lets hope sells keep increasing as the new games are coming out

    • e_rocket

      Yes they should be writing about that, where did you read this news?

      • D.M.T

        At another Nintendo website.

  • Sidney Majurie

    Is it me or does this still not explain anything. I already assumed games are delayed for development issues so I have more questions now. But yes, I’m buying it whenever it releases.

  • Geoffrey Tasker

    now if capcom would just announce Ultra street fighter 4 we’ll be in the money! I made a petition on change.org and sent it to you guys . support the cause!

  • fireheartis1

    I’m not a D&D fan anyways, but this sounds like rubbish to me. Come on “Unexpected dev issues.” What does that even mean? What they didn’t hire enough devs to make the Wii U version, or devs were threating to quit because of inadequate pay? What was it? Too many questions pop up when you see such a shallow answer to why a game wasn’t finished on time.

  • Justin Scott

    Thanks for the update. I’ve been waiting for some news on this game. I will surely be buying it.

  • TDS_Computer

    My son and I are eagerly anticipating this game! Glad to hear it is still on track…but hurry up, Capcom!

  • Michael DeVore

    I will defiantly be picking up this title. I picked up an additional pro controller in anticipation as well.

    What exactly is “unexpected dev issues”? I was under the impression that it was already sent to Nintendo for certification. Clearly they didn’t check something, or hadn’t sent it off yet.

    • Gabe Hoffman

      Probably a bug of some sort

  • Moreck

    I can’t wait to buy this game! I’ve been excited for it since the first trailer debuted months ago. I hope it comes out soon! πŸ˜€

    • starwars360

      Love you yah. We look forward this downloadable game for Wii U. We have Pikmin 3 so sooner before this game as well many more on way sooner after. πŸ™‚

  • ICHI

    I want this game but it’s not much of a reveal as far as news stories go, it’s like a murderer saying “how and why I killed those people was purely down to unexpected hammer issues”

  • e_rocket

    β€œunexpected dev issues.” what an explanation…

  • Elem187

    My interest in the game has waned… see, there isn’t very much on the Wii U right now, so I would have purchased it already, but starting August 3rd I’m probably going to be a lot more picky with my game purchasing decisions….

    Can they clarify ‘dev issues’ ??

  • kutral

    i was expecting so much this game on wii u, but it took so long that i bought it on psn :/

  • I’ve been wondering where this game was. It is the only thing coming to the Eshop all summer that I’ve any interest in. Now I’ve gotta wait until August. Which is a horrible time with all the other major releases coming that month.

  • Cube

    This game looks like a complete copy of GoldenAxe Myth Free.
    But I’ll definitely buy this game.

  • FungalSpawn

    Don’t think anyone cares one bit about this game.

  • Levi Johansen

    I’ll be buying this game for sure and every game that follows it.

  • QuizmasterBos

    Don’t find this surprising. They might as well said (in regards to their delaying): “Because we’re Capcom.”

  • C.S. Bailey

    Been waiting for this game for a while, will continue to wait and not purchase for my 360.
