Warner Bros. Interactive EntertainmentÃ‚Â announced earlier this week thatÃ‚Â LEGO: The HobbitÃ‚Â will see a slight delay on Wii U to April 22.
LEGO: The Hobbit is available now for all other announced systems Ã¢â‚¬â€ Nintendo 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. But the Wii U version of LEGO: The Hobbit is now planned for April 22, according to a Warner Bros. press release touting the game’s launch. The publisher strangely gave no explanation whatsoever for the delay on Nintendo’s console.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The LEGO: The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans of all ages a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter JacksonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s The Hobbit trilogy,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Tom Stone, managing director of TT Games, in the press release. Warner Bros. states that more content based on the third film, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will arrive at a later date.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time a Warner Bros. game for Wii U has experienced setbacks. Earlier this month, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate — Deluxe EditionÃ‚Â saw a delayÃ‚Â for Wii U in Europe. And earlier this year, Warner Bros.Ã‚Â canceled DLCÃ‚Â for Batman: Arkham Origins on Nintendo’s home console. Let’s hope they get back on track soon.
