Capcom reveals why Chronicles of Mystara for Wii U was delayed


Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara was released last month to several other platforms. It was supposed to be released on Wii U as well, but the release date came and went with no word from Capcom as to why the Wii U version was never released on the eShop. Capcom has now revealed that the game will be released on the Wii U in August and it was delayed for “unexpected dev issues.”

The game is a compilation of two great Capcom games, including Dungeons & Dragon’s Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara. Both were released in the ’90s, so it’ll be great to see these titles re-released as a set for a new generation. Will you be picking up this title? Let us know in the comments below.

    Ashley you need to write an article about Wii U being the second best selling console in Japan thanks to Pikmin 3, who’s the best selling game in Japan this week.

    Please report this great news.

    • JeanPaul Badjo

      Yup. Almost tripled sales. Went from 8k to 22k and let’s not forget that the game has only been out for 2 days out of the week, so net week can be even better. Also Pikmin sold 92k in only 2 says and that doesn’t even include downloads.

      • e_rocket

        Great news, lets hope sells keep increasing as the new games are coming out

    • e_rocket

      Yes they should be writing about that, where did you read this news?

      • D.M.T

        At another Nintendo website.

  • Sidney Majurie

    Is it me or does this still not explain anything. I already assumed games are delayed for development issues so I have more questions now. But yes, I’m buying it whenever it releases.

  • Geoffrey Tasker

    now if capcom would just announce Ultra street fighter 4 we’ll be in the money! I made a petition on and sent it to you guys . support the cause!

  • fireheartis1

    I’m not a D&D fan anyways, but this sounds like rubbish to me. Come on “Unexpected dev issues.” What does that even mean? What they didn’t hire enough devs to make the Wii U version, or devs were threating to quit because of inadequate pay? What was it? Too many questions pop up when you see such a shallow answer to why a game wasn’t finished on time.

  • Justin Scott

    Thanks for the update. I’ve been waiting for some news on this game. I will surely be buying it.

  • TDS_Computer

    My son and I are eagerly anticipating this game! Glad to hear it is still on track…but hurry up, Capcom!

  • Michael DeVore

    I will defiantly be picking up this title. I picked up an additional pro controller in anticipation as well.

    What exactly is “unexpected dev issues”? I was under the impression that it was already sent to Nintendo for certification. Clearly they didn’t check something, or hadn’t sent it off yet.

    • Gabe Hoffman

      Probably a bug of some sort

  • Moreck

    I can’t wait to buy this game! I’ve been excited for it since the first trailer debuted months ago. I hope it comes out soon! 😀

    • starwars360

      Love you yah. We look forward this downloadable game for Wii U. We have Pikmin 3 so sooner before this game as well many more on way sooner after. :)

  • ICHI

    I want this game but it’s not much of a reveal as far as news stories go, it’s like a murderer saying “how and why I killed those people was purely down to unexpected hammer issues”

  • e_rocket

    “unexpected dev issues.” what an explanation…

  • Elem187

    My interest in the game has waned… see, there isn’t very much on the Wii U right now, so I would have purchased it already, but starting August 3rd I’m probably going to be a lot more picky with my game purchasing decisions….

    Can they clarify ‘dev issues’ ??

  • kutral

    i was expecting so much this game on wii u, but it took so long that i bought it on psn :/

  • GoldDreams

    I’ve been wondering where this game was. It is the only thing coming to the Eshop all summer that I’ve any interest in. Now I’ve gotta wait until August. Which is a horrible time with all the other major releases coming that month.

  • Cube

    This game looks like a complete copy of GoldenAxe Myth Free.
    But I’ll definitely buy this game.

  • FungalSpawn

    Don’t think anyone cares one bit about this game.

  • Levi Johansen

    I’ll be buying this game for sure and every game that follows it.

  • QuizmasterBos

    Don’t find this surprising. They might as well said (in regards to their delaying): “Because we’re Capcom.”

  • C.S. Bailey

    Been waiting for this game for a while, will continue to wait and not purchase for my 360.
