Fans Begin Petition for Dark Souls II on Wii U
As someone who immensely enjoyed the original Dark Souls, I can identify with this petition. And I hope some of you can too. We would like to get the Wii U off to a good start in terms of third-party support and this seems like it would be a great opportunity as the game is still early on in development. According to the petition:
DARK SOULS II can reach an even larger audience by including development for the Nintendo WiiU. As of now, the game has only been announced for development on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
I can see many ways that the WiiU could benefit the game, such as managing inventory on the touch screen without having to obscure the player’s vision on the TV (the Souls games do not pause, so you must be able to pay attention at all times).
The affordability of a WiiU console compared to a gaming PC, and the free online play compared to Xbox Live fees on 360, make the WiiU version ideal for anyone who does not have or want a PS3.
