Metro Last Light Wii U
The Metro Last Light Wii U version has been delayed, publisher THQ confirmed recently. Metro Last Light is the sequel to Metro 2033, which was released on the PC and Xbox 360. The post-apocalyptic fist person shooter is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the Wii U, however, THQ revealed that developer 4A Games will be focusing on the current gen consoles first. This means the Metro Last Light Wii U version will be delayed past the Q1 2013 release of the game. A THQ representative said, “Right now we’re focusing on existing platforms and PC, so it’s unlikely that the Wii U verson will come out at the same time as those formats”.

Metro Last Light is one of the few hardcore action titles that have been announced for the Wii U, sadly, it looks like Wii U owners will have to wait a a bit longer for a chance to play it. But FPS and action game fans shouldn’t be discouraged, the Wii U is getting plenty of such games this year, including Killer Freaks From Outer Space, Ghost Recon Online, Batman: Arkham City, Darksiders, 2, and Assassin’s Creed 3. All of those titles are expected to be ready during the console launch.

    To be honest, it’s a good thing for the delay. Not because we might get a better version, but that it won’t be a cheap port of the game (unlike what happened to the Wii) and will be focused on the Wii. Delays are good in my book, especially if focused on different platforms.

    • Death

      I agree completely.

    • BlueFalcon

      Yeah I agree with you there.

    • Marq

      Agreed. I’d rather get a fully optimized version than a quick and dirty port.

    Wii U is on a whole diffetent level, different dimension than the Wii. So I really wish people would stop calling it Wii U.

    • Swic11

      But that’s it’s name….

    • alienfish

      I’ll stop calling it WiiU when Nintendo does, how about that?

      • david6

        But what if ‘nintendo stream’ is still alive, that first beautiful creative spirit from project cafe, and all those beatiful concepts?

  • Saria sage of the forest

    Its sad to see that is taking other competerators games and remastering them for the wii u come on nintendo stick to ye old imagination

    • Swic11

      But Nintendo is trying to change that a little bit, they want 3rd party developers, it means more money for them int the long run and more console sales
