Warner Brothers Cancels Batman: Arkham Origins DLC For Wii U, Nintendo Issues Refund

Warner Brothers Cancels Batman: Arkham Origins DLC For Wii U, Nintendo Issues Refund

Things aren’t looking good for the Wii U.  First, Watch Dogs has simply disappeared from Wii U’s list of games that can be preordered, then Nintendo failed to list said title as one that’s upcoming for the console, and now Warner Bros. has cancelled upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins DLC for Nintendo’s flailing console. Rough times.

In turn, Nintendo has issued a letter to those who bought the Season Pass of the game on Wii U, informing them that upcoming content will not make it to the console, and that a full refund has been issued to their accounts.

Here’s the letter in full:

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.
