Gamers petition for 'Dark Souls II' on Wii U
At least one gamer is upset that Namco Bandai's "Dark Souls II" isn't slated for release on the Wii U.
So Christopher Marcil of Brighton, Mich., started a petition on Change.org to ask the publisher, as well as game developer FromSoftware, to put the game on Nintendo's new console too.
So far, more than 7,500 supporters have signed on to his effort.
Here's Marcil's rationale for the petition effort:
"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."
Sound logic, I believe.
