Edit: It’s been confirmed that the update is only for the UK version. The US version will be released on schedule.

It looks like Injustice: Gods Among Us for Wii U will be launching on April 26th instead of the April 19th release date for other version of the game. CVG originally reported that Warner Bros. Interactive decided to delay the Wii U version of the game, but no reason has been given for the delay. It’s worth noting that a season pass for DLC has already been announced for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, but not for the Wii U.

We’ll keep you up to date if any more information is released concerning the delay.

    Probably cause Nintendo disapproves of season passes and they retaliate as such…Just a thought.

  • Pretty sure this is UK only.

    • Yep, I’ve edited the article to indicate that.

      • D.M.T

        I live in Europe but not in UK, does this mean i have to wait too? It doesnt bother me, i just want to know

        • I’m not really sure. So far it’s only been announced that the UK has been delayed. I’ll update the article if I have any more information for Europe.

            What’s your Miiverse account? I don’t know if you post updates on Miiverse, but I’d like to follow you on there if I could just in case.

          • AAAkabob

            Lol cause putting “follow” in all caps makes it sound less creepyXD

  • ConCity Soldier

    I read somewhere that it’s only being delayed in Europe.

  • Silver Fox

    perhaps ill cancel my pre order.. this must be a sign, i was unsure to begin with.

    • D.M.T

      Cancel your pre-order because of a 1 week delay? REALLY dude??? Why don’t you go ahead and sell the Wii U since you don’t have patience at all

  • Cap9

    Why is Nintendo always getting the short end of the stick, man! Does everybody hate Nintendo???

    • D.M.T

      The problem are us Nintendo fans and not necessarily Nintendo themselves. How many Nintendo fans have you seen saying this: ‘I only buy Nintendo consoles for 1st party games’? The answer is a lot of them say that which is why 3rd parties will think twice before releasing a game on Wii U or releasing DLC for Wii U.

      Nintendo fans are also to blame for the poor 3rd party support. A lot of them don’t buy 3rd party games on Nintendo consoles. Shame on those who don’t.

        That’s not true.

        Nintendo fans just doesn’t buy the overpriced late port because they’re not stupid.

      • Gabe Hoffman

        Exactly, Because of Nintendo fans being so dang picky they make third parties think that Nintendo fans don’t want their money. I am not like those people however I have bought many third party games for my Wii U including NFSMWU and I will happily buy Rayman Legends as well

  • Nakz

    I’m 101% sure that’s UK only.

  • My guess is delay is to add tablet function.

    • Every system isgetting delayed

    • It is releasing on time in the US and other Markets so the game is done. This is something UK specific so maybe a language patch or something at the last minute. My pre-order has shipped and will be delivered tomorrow for my Wii U.

  • Petri

    What is an UK version?
    Is it different what rest of Europe is getting?
    And is rest of the Europe still getting it on time?

    I dont mind not having DLC season passes, as long as we get the same DLC.
    Season passes are like paying someone to maybe do them, or maybe make them good..

    • It most likely goes for Europe too. UK is treated like the boss in Europe. When ever they announce a game for Europe it’s almost always in pounds,then you get the price in Euros when it’s actually out.

      • Petri

        I see, this news was got from what I think is an UK website?
        So its no wonder they talk about UK, but yes, other sources say it is delayed in whole Europe.

        Dont know about prices though, I usually find out US and euro price before UK ones.

  • Nintenjoe82

    Anyone else thinking these inexplicable delays are down to Nintendo opting for discs with rounded edges?

    • Nintedward

      Possibly. Maybe it has something to do with the production of these proprietary discs.

      Anyway , this is not good , I really wanted injustice on the 19th 🙁 . Anyway , I will have more time to finish up with Luigi’s mansion 2 , Monster Hunter , Lego city and Toki tori 2.

  • MetroidZero

    One week delay. At least it’s not delayed until September…

  • DemonRoach

    Not sure anyone really cares about it. It’s bound to be a 3/10 game anyway.

  • John Madsen

    Doesn’t surprise me at all on this it’s a little tricky to get games that run on pal correct so they dont lag or create issues for people in the u.k and even importers have found this out as well so hopefully a better game will come of this delay

  • david jarman

    Sometimes I feel like the world is just trying to rub out nintendo. It’s sad.

  • Nintengoth

    Hmmm game delayed? no dlc for WiiU? this is why i dont bother with multiplatform games, Ninty always gets fucked over lol x

  • Zeldatrek

    I got Mine USA USA! Ok being serious now I can see why there might be shortages. I’m the first one to get theirs from Best Buy by me and they only had Two hard copies of the Wii U version. That means I got half of their entire stock!
