    WB pulls the plug on Batman: Arkham Origins story DLC for Wii U

    The Wii U will not be receiving the upcoming story DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins after all, Warner Bros. has confirmed.

    Citing the lack of demand as the reason for the cancellation, Go Nintendo reports that Nintendo is now refunding $19.99 of eShop credit to those who previously purchased the Arkham Origins Season Pass.

    "Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U," begins Nintendo's e-mail.

    "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."

    The Arkham Origins season pass included a trio of skin packs, an Initiation challenge rooms pack, and the upcoming campaign content. It is still available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game.

    "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support of the game," concludes Nintendo.

    Nah, couldn't really be bothered. I bought the console for the first-party games and backwards compatibility and they didn't disappoint. Pooky doesn't have a Wii-U anymore, he traded it for a 3DS I believe.
    When an anti-piracy method is affecting the game for people who legitimately bought it and causing other people not to buy the game, there is obviously something wrong with it!
