Little Orbit Cancels “Young Justice: Legacy” Titles For Wii and WiiU Video Game Consoles

Publisher Little Orbit has announced the Wii and WiiU editions for the upcoming Young Justice: Legacy video game title have been cancelled. The Young Justice game will no longer hit the major Nintendo consoles, save for a Nintendo 3DS release. Slated to hit shelves on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013, Young Justice: Legacy is an Action-RPG based on the recent Young Justice animated series that fills in the gap between the first and second season of the acclaimed DC Comics cartoon. Little Orbit confirmed Young Justice: Legacy will see definite release on the aforementioned Nintendo 3DS handheld console, along with editions for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Steam. Below is the publisher’s official announcement on the console cancellation.

“Based on several factors we’ve had to cancel the Wii and Wii-U versions of Young Justice: Legacy.

We regret that this decision will prevent some fans from playing the game and the finding out what happens in the story. There were a number of reasons ranging from quality issues to lack of retailer support, but know that we didn’t make this decision lightly. We are a fairly new company, and unfortunately both of these platforms presented challenges we couldn’t overcome.

Please accept our sincere apology.

We look forward to delivering the Xbox360, PS3, 3DS, and Steam versions in less than a month.”
