More Black Ops 2 Wii U clues

If you needed further confirmation that Black Ops 2 is definitely coming to the Nintendo Wii U, Treyarch has seemingly just provided it. When specifically quizzed on the idea of Black Ops 2 making its way to Nintendo’s upcoming next-gen console, Mark Lamia simply said that they are ‘not talking about it’ for the moment.

To give you a recap, Black Ops 2 has been featured in an upcoming edition of Nintendo Gamer Magazine and similar to previous Assassin’s Creed 3 magazine leaks, it is usually an indication that the game is on the way.

Aside from Lamia stating that they are not talking about Black Ops 2 on the Wii U, the Treyarch head did provide a few more tantalizing teases suggesting they will indeed be bringing the game to Nintendo’s new console.

To pick out one interesting quote from his interview with Game Industry: “They announced a Pro Controller which appears to be a controller that would be really good for first person shooter games. It just so happens that’s what we specialize in. So that’s an interesting development.”

There were also further points made about Nintendo’s touchscreen controller, backing up comments we made yesterday when we said that Black Ops 2 on the Wii U could end up with the most functionality compared to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The idea of having additional touchscreen controller features such as setting up equipment and weapons may just push some gamers over the edge to pick up the Wii U version as a preference.

It’s clear to us that the game is definitely coming to Wii U, but how does this affect you? We spoke about a potential £280 / $435 price point for the Wii U when it launches, but if it does land with Black Ops 2 this November – will you seriously think about buying the Wii U version instead?

The real story is going to come when we have the chance to compare graphics between the Wii U and console versions. This could define whether the Wii U really is a ‘next-gen’ console or whether its going to look silly once Microsoft and Sony unleash their next efforts.

Hope it’s true. I’d love to see what they can do with the touchscreen (so long as it’s actually useful, that is).
