Looks like every multiplatform game does not support online Wii U version.

Well SEGA is doing right thing. Every multiplatform game has flopped on Wii U. No need to make even online when nobody is not buying game or playing online ever.

Even most popular Wii U games has online dead. Tried to find Call of Duty players, lol no players in Wii u version.

Good work Nintendo!

I haven't read up on this game but the trailer lead me to believe that 4-player co-op is its main gimmick. Co-op and online go hand and hand. Well, at least on every other platform.

I thought this game was only coming to Wii U and 3DS, infact I'm certain thats the case.

Not every game has to be multi player....in fact some are better when they are not. I mean yeah...senseless shooters and racing games are better multi.....so play those.

Oh no! Lacking online in a game franchise with multiplayer that is generally not very good. Whatever shall I do? /sarcasm

Besides, online is better used for Sonic's more recent racing games anyway.

Not every game needs multiplayer sure, but some do. And games built around co op seem ideal.

More excuses.

the amount of damage control here. It's a game DESIGNED with MP in mind. Just admit Nintendo needs to stop being a bunch of fucking dumbasses and embrace the fact that online play is a thing now and that we can't always huddle in front of a TV together in the same room.

@handssss: They probably should embrace online a bit more. That being said, Sonic's still made by Sega, so it's them you have an issue with.

Every genre doesn't need online multiplayer ya know. I swear these mainstream FPS gamers think this should be the norm or something. They'd need to really design it a certain way for 3D platformers to work with online in a meaningful way (ie we don't know yet whether this game should have online or not, so we shouldn't criticise).

I know everyone will say "lol cod" "lol cod on wii u"

But that statement is full of it. I actually got Ghosts on Wii U. Finding matches is pretty easy. It is harder to get onto the less popular modes but as far as TDM, FFA, Dom, etc it's easy to get in a game.

Also, I'm not surprised but a really dumb decision. Seemed like a good game to have multi.

Its a joke... The trailer shows 4 characters on screen but the game only supports LOCAL 2 player co-op only?...

Also stop with the ignorant and defensive posts you retarded fanboys, this is a game clearly made for co-op... It not having online co-op is dumb, just like you guys

It supports up to 4. 2 characters max are on the screen when you are playing by yourself, but that probably has changed because of new details.

This was SEGA's decision. Not Nintendo. Blame the latter for another game.

Good move by the devs. Online is big, important part of gaming, but not on Wii U.

Don't waste time making something Wii U owners won't even use.

Call of Duty Ghosts U is absolutely dead online. You see the same group of people. These are the last remaining survivors before Activision pulls out support.

Sonic Boom has everything set in place for online MP and even has co-op. This game isn't exactly "Beyond: Two Souls" which can't have online MP, lol

It's just that the Wii U is so dead it's not worth working harder at this point when past efforts have been so under-appreciated by Sheep.

God forbid I call out any irony, especially from someone like Speak_Low who admitted to hating Nintendo to go out and say "their efforts have went underappreciated" when that is something only FANS say.

@nintendoboy16: That doesn't ring true. Just because he hates Nintendo does not mean he doesn't consider them to be a company who makes no effort and it does not follow that only a fan would say what he did at all.

Nintendo had way more potential and should be doing better. I can't stand their frustrating and stubborn decisions - many of them going back over a decade.

And I also can't stand bad damage control - so much of what I read carries so much bad reasoning and untruthfulness (and have been proven wrong many times) but are still used as excuses today.

Sheep say so many things don't matter. Sales (oh but they showed off Wii sales), hardware, online MP, third-party support, etc. Before you know it, they start naming off every feature a gaming console should have, so that we're left with a plain plastic box with no purpose - because according to Sheep nothing is important.

I am not siding with such absurd points of view, and this is a forum where we can challenge that.

I am also congratulating Sonic Boom dev 'Big Red Button' for saving their time. MP is important, but Nintendo didn't provide the audience for it to thrive like it should. Nintendo's fault.

Also, too many devs get brutally assaulted by Sheep (see them get hostile towards WB for pulling DLC when the sales were indeed awful and the decision made sense!). Big Red Button also have an ex Naughty Dog dev as a founder, so there is some extra (biased) sympathy there.

Nintendo on the other hand should rename their console to One Big Flop. You can't flop hard unless you have high potential and abilities to begin with. Nintendo flopped BAD!

Your posts go beyond frustration. I'm fine if you have criticisms (hey, so do I) and I understand if Nintendo isn't your thing, but you go the extra mile. You've never brought up "potential" before, so I don't believe you.

And most other fandoms are ANY FREAKING BETTER? Must we forget what happened over the Bayonetta 2 fiasco? Must we forget about what happened to BioWare over the ME3 ending (which happened WAY before the Wii U version even released)? Because, yeah, only the sheep "brutally assault developers/publishers". Don't act like any non-sheep are on any higher ground on treating devs/pubs, because they really aren't.

@Shinobishyguy: He puts a huge post full of salient points and instead of addressing any of them, you simply write some incoherent nonsense instead. I suppose it's a step up from calling a person a "mongoloid" but you're still nothing more than a loud mouth.
