I'm actually unsure which version I should get at this point. hmmm couple factors I have to weigh.

@nate38

I don't get it. Why not just include that control style in the Wii U version?? The Wii U can use Wiimotes!! ugh. Sometimes it's just frustrating how like, a system can't use all its strength due to what amounts to not much more than branding.

@GameDadGrant

Yea, no big deal.

What is the genre of this game? I look at it, and think "Skies of Arcadia!," but I know thats not the case Haven't played Nights either, so yeah..

@Mr_Mustache

It just looks like NiGHTS but with some tweaks to the mechanic/goals. Not sure how else to describe it because NiGHTS is rather unique in my opinion. ....it's like a.... fly-around-and-do-stuff-acrobatically game. This new one seems to include some more direct combat and flying more along the Z axis.

@NinSage That is kind of bizarre that the Wii U game doesn't have the Wii controls as an option.

@NinSage @Zero
Agreed, really weird that the Wii U version has no pointer controls. Oh well, I'll probably end up just playing the Wii version. Apparently the visuals are almost identical, minus the HD.

I think the whole situation is odd. Why have any differences between versions to begin with? It's especially weird since they aren't selling the Wii version separately. I guess it could have something to do with how long it took this game to finally release...

@Mop it up Yeah, this game's pre-release history is so bizarre. It's actually part of the reason I'm interested in it, haha.

Trailer showcasing the Wii version's unique features: looks fun, even with the chipper anime tutorial dialogue.

One week!

Just put in my pre-order on Amazon for the Wii / Wii U version. I'll probably regret spending $60 on this game, but for some reason I am compelled to do so.

Haven't cancelled mine.

It's 75 frickin' Canadian dollars over here, but I got a rebate dropping it to $60. What a deal!

God, this game better be worth it.. I'm taking a TOTAL flier on this thing.

I somehow feel like this game will become a Collector's Item.

Destructoid has the first(?) review of the Wii U version: It's a 7/10. They did not receive a review copy of the Wii version throw-in, which is the one I'm more interested in seeing the response for.

Ooh! Almost forgot this game was coming out! Less than a week away at this point!

EXCITE!

Not what the WiiU needs

This is one of those games that will just end up lost in a sea of JRPGs. I'm literally watching the trailer and counting each cliche i see that's in every JRPG. I want more WiiU games so I can justify the purchase of the thing, but Nintendo just aren't putting out anything that's worth having. Where's that high-speed racing game? Or an actual sequel to Okami that uses the Gamepad productively?


What the..?

Cashed in on a Christmas gift from Amy and secured the Limited Edition. Excite! ... can't open it 'til Christmas though. Tough but fair.

@Mr_Mustache

hmmm. That person is not very familiar with the game I guess.

So how is this?

@TriforceBun

Ask bestbuy.ca's people responsible for shipping my copy.

Kotaku's import preview does a pretty good job outlining the differences between the Wii U and Wii versions. It's baffling that they didn't bother with the IR controls in the Wii U port. It sounds like the game suffers a lot for it. Can't seem to find any coverage of the 3DS version at all, though I've read comments that it's almost identical to the Wii U version.
