Instead of porting the Wii version directly and keep Wiimote support, they went that route. It makes no sense.
Yeah, I dunno..

Nintendo's motto..

If we can make this much more complicated then easy, we will do it!

It's a game not many know about so making it worse only worsens the situation.

The Wii U is a horrible downgraded port from the 3DS with brown visuals.
It was a joke in regards to how you had to repeat it over and over. Guess nobody got it.

I got the tracking email after they delivered it. I'll put up some pics after work today (unless you get yours before then).

There's an unboxing video on YouTube already. The Wii game comes in the Wii U case and its cover is reversible via the Wii U cover's.

Incompetent store. I wanted to add Dragon's Crown to my existing order. They couldn't do that, not even manually, and I had to re-order the Limited Edition + Dragon's Crown again.

My order in NIS store still states unfulfilled, so it seems it hasn't been sent out yet.

Ordered the game from GameSeek for 34.66 with some store credit I had so I'll get to try the Wii U version but more than likely just keep the Wii version and sell the Wii U disc.

That sucks. I got an email a couple of weeks ago to make sure my billing information was correct. Good thing they did because I had made the original order with a card that is now shut off. When I finally got through to customer support they were awesome. I even got the confirmation email before we hung up. Then I had this issue with the actual shipping emails. Overall not a horrible experience for me.

Just got a dispatch order so it'll be here by the 12th or 13th. Exactly when the game's released.

Just played Rodea Wii U for a while and dear god, it's even worse than I had expected. Thankfully it came with the Wii version so this pile of Wii U manure will be sold.

Graphics and colours looked really awful, gameplay felt extremely awkward and unnatural and for some reason it's not possible to return to the main menu when pressing the Start Button (+).

What I saw on the internet for months before was exactly what's in the Wii U version -- Poop.

For those that paid to get the Collector's Edition sure could've included a steelbook case like the LE of Project Zero and Xenoblade X. Mario Kart 8 also has a steelbook case but it wasn't part of the Limited Edition set though rather a German exclusive or something.

Agreed.

I paid like 60pounds + postage for this. Paid 50 EUR only for the Project Zero 5 Limited Edition and that Limited Edition is far nicer. Oh well, at least soundtrack was included.

EDIT: OMG, the Wii U version is really really rough.

So NIS just ported the DS version to a Wii U disc?

So it then would be a step down from the orginal Wii. I dunno what the selling point of this is at all to be frank.

The selling point is probably the Wii version.
