Sega was one of the first companies on board the Wii U train when the console was formally announced this June saying that Aliens: Colonial Marines would be coming to Wii U. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the title will be arriving this spring, but seeing as how the Wii U has not definitive release date, all we Nintendo fans can do is look on and watch and dream of how one day that radar screen will be in the palm of our hands.
One area I really think that the Wii U will be able to excel is in with cooperative play because one player will be able to use the TV while the other uses the Wii U tablet. Cooperative play has been confirmed for the title, but no word on how Gearbox plans to use the Wii U’s ability to stream game content to the tablet controller.
In any case, Aliens: Colonial Marines looks to be shaping up to be a must have title when it releases for Wii U. Hopefully Sega has it ready in time for the launch of Wii U so gamers have content to play immediately upon the consoles release. We don’t want another 3DS debacle now do we Nintendo?
