Black Ops 2 is going to be available on Nintendo’s fancy new console, the Wii U, according to a piece in this months Nintendo Gamer magazine, and also confirmed by Activision today. The ‘Wii U Preview’, as it’s titled in the mag, reveals nothing that we don’t already know about the game other than the fact that it will be coming to the new console this November.
No mention was made of if Wii U’s new controller / tablet would be put to good use in Black Ops 2, but a large view of the mini-map would certainly be one way the controllers screen could be utilized in multiplayer. The touchscreen could also make building classes with Black Ops 2′s new point allocation system a breeze.
Speaking of controllers, Nintendo also announced another controller for the Wii U at E3 last week. The ‘Pro controller‘ has a striking resemblance to the Xbox 360 controller, something that Nintendo’s FPS fans will be happy to hear.
Activision’s top-dog, CEO Eric Hirshberg, also confirmed today that Black Ops 2 is coming to the Wii U. Speaking to GameIndustry, Hirshberg said “We take our time to get our ducks in a row before pulling any trigger. We don’t have announcements today but we will be supporting Wii U.”
It was also confirmed last week at Sony’s E3 press conference that their handheld console, the PlayStation Vita, will be getting a new Black Ops game. Details are scarce, but ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified’, as it’s called, is coming to PlayStation Vita this holiday
