As we’ve heard in the last month, Deep Silver is overseeing the publishing of the physical copy of Mighty No. 9 and are releasing a Signature Edition of the game complete with a statuette of Beck, the protagonist of the game. Unfortunately for Wii U fans, only US PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be enjoying this version. A tweet went out on 3 June by Deep Silver themselves confirming this:
@Shadow_Enz Can confirm that the US-only Signature Edition is only available for XB1 and PS4.

This is extremely frustrating for fans of Nintendo products as it seems that we’ve seen an unprecedented lack of support of third party support for Wii U since its launch back in 2012. I honestly want to bet that most of the people who want this game are Wii U owners. This game is a spiritual successor to the Mega Man franchise which made its start on the Nintendo Entertainment System. I truly hope that they change their minds on this as this is yet another depressing aspect of being a Nintendo fan. Mighty No. 9 is coming out on PC as well and even PC gamers are getting screwed over by not being included in this.
How do you feel about the Wii U exclusion? Leave your grievances below.
