The Wii would not be able to run this game as it has a large HD open world to explore,the Wii has been out now for around six years which is pretty good value,go and buy a Wii U they are very good value at the moment and you can still use all your existing Wii games and accessories.
I can't be sure Nintendo check these discussions, and in fairness John Morris is right, there's been a few years to save up for the next console. We'd all be discussing this by telegram if technology never moved on!
We were late buyers for the Wii as it took a while to save for. We have since invested in quite a few games and the Wii itself still works perfectly fine! Your now asking us to buy a new Wii U just so we are able to play what you know will be a highly desired new game request right before christmas from our kids (Lego Marvel!). So unfair!! This is all my son wants for christmas and we are unable to get it for him! I'm disgusted with Nintendo!! Even if we could afford the new Wii U, what should I do with my old Wii, chuck it! Aren't we trying to stop being such a throw away society because of global warming etc...... Such a let down!!!
So I guess you never buy anything new then? Are you still using a black and white tv which you collected from the shop on a horse and carriage? Perhaps you could watch your Betamax video recorder whilst your washing your clothes in the river
I can't believe that some parents want a game to be limited to a console thats not only 8 years old, but that console was basically Gamecube from 2001 but with a wiimote controller.
Both the Wii and WiiU are outdated hardware and developers want to make their games the best they can and not be limited by outdated hardware. They were wise to abandon the Wii for this game much the same as they were wise to abandon the PS2. You don't hear PS2 owners whining that a game released in 2014 won't work on the hardware.
We are already seeing developers abandon the WiiU. Not only because of very poor WiiU sales but the hardware is no better than a PS3 or 360 and these games need the PS4 XB1 levels of power. Technology moves forward not backwards.
