While there have been several developers and publishers who have chosen to skip the Wii U, there are some who still support Nintendo’s latest console, albeit not in its fullest. Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 4 is available for the Nintendo Wii U, but it seems that if you were looking forward to getting your hands on some Assassin’s Creed 4 DLCs for your Wii U, you’d be out of luck. The folks at Gamereactor have spoke to Ubisoft who has confirmed that the Wii U version of Assassin’s Creed 4 will not be getting the upcoming DLC that will introduce a new single-player story, a Kraken Ship Pack, along with new multiplayer characters.
It is unclear if it is only this DLC that will be skipping the Wii U, or if all future Assassin’s Creed 4 DLCs will skip the Wii U, but either way we’re sure Wii U games cannot be pleased by this. We’re hoping that this will not become a common occurrence for Wii U games. After all Batman: Arkham Origins for the Wii U will not come with a multiplayer mode and will actually be priced cheaper to make up for it, and while it might not matter to gamers who just want to play the storyline, having features left out deliberately is not a good feeling. Wii U gamers what do you guys think? Will you be passing up on certain games just because they lack features that other consoles are getting?
