Many Nintendo fans were rightfully upset when news broke that the Wii U version of Batman: Arkham Origins, the upcoming prequel to the popular Batman: Arkham games, will lack the multiplayer mode of its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 counterparts. Fortunately, it will also be slightly cheaper than either of those versions, as Warner Bros. has confirmed the game will retail for $10 less on Wii U than on other consoles.
Unlike previous installments in the series, Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal, the team behind last year’s Wii U port of Batman: Arkham City. Origins also features a separate multiplayer mode developed by Splash Damage. According to a representative from Warner Bros. Interactive, the reason the Wii U version will be missing out on this mode is because the team is “focusing development efforts on platforms with the largest multiplayer audience.”
Will the $10 difference be enough to compensate for the lack of multiplayer? Let us know what you think in the comments.
