Warner Bros. - Batman: Arkham OriginsWarner Bros. Interactive has come out in support of the Wii U. “We’re a believer on the Wii U,” says company president Martin Tremblay.

He is not blind to the console’s sluggish sales, but he is optimistic that it will take a turn. “I think the console has been off to a slow start, but I think they’re going to fix the problem. I don’t think it’s a problem, but it’s more about the content. And I think they showed tons of new content [at E3] that will re-energize the platform.”

In the past couple of months, the Wii U continually saw a loss of faith from the big three publishers. EA’s most notably showed their lack of faith when they announced that their latest Frostbite engine will not be supported on the Wii U. Activision may have released a port of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 at the system’s launch, but when asked about Call of Duty: Ghosts, the next iteration in the Call of Duty franchise, they become incredibly indecisive. Ubisoft had two titles slated to be exclusive to the platform, but the two had gone multiplatform since their initial announcement. One of which was delayed seven months within weeks of its intended release so it can be ported to the other platforms.

Although they have a stake in every platform, Warner Bros. have become the only major publisher who has a Nintendo exclusive title coming this year. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure will be released later this year on both the Wii U and 3DS. Whether justified or not, Warner Bros. appears to be taking their commitment to Nintendo pretty seriously.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
