While the Deathstroke DLC seen above did end up coming to Wii U, purchasers of the season pass for Batman: Arkham Origins will not be receiving any more DLC. This is an email that is being sent out to those who purchased the season pass:
Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U.
We are contacting you today because you purchased the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass for Wii U. We hope you’ve been enjoying the content that has been delivered thus far. Based on demand for Downloadable Content on the system, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has made the decision to remove its offering of the upcoming new story campaign for Wii U. As a result, we will be crediting the entire $19.99+tax cost of the Season Pass back to your Nintendo eShop account. You will still be able to enjoy the content already released thus far.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support of the game.
Sincerely, Nintendo of America Inc.
So the good news in this situation is that you get your money back and keep the DLC already released. The bad news is what this means for third party support on the Wii U. Warner Bros. has already been a little shabby with Wii U DLC in Injustice: Gods Among Us, so I’m honestly not very surprised to see this happening.
If you ended up getting the twenty dollar refund and need help spending it, why not check out the huge indie sale on the eShop right now. I recommend Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party if you like wacky party games that use the living room more than the TV.
