One Of The Last Wii Games Comes With A Free Wii U Upgrade

One of only two games left to be released on Nintendo's last-gen console, Skylanders: Trap Team for the Wii is hedging its bets, including a download code for the Wii U version of the game in every box.

The news comes from a tweet from the game's official account way back on July 23 (via Gamespot).

Skylanders toys are universal — generally it's the portals used to inject the toys into the game world that vary between systems, and since the Wii and Wii U were designed to use many of the same peripherals, there you go.

As an added bonus, retailers will be quicker to discount the regular Wii version of the starter kit from its $US75 asking price, eventually making it a back door bargain for Wii U owners.

I wonder if Ubisoft will offer similar console death insurance on October's Just Dance 2015?

    Interesting.

    Anyone know what the other one is? Always thought it sucked that Twilight Princess was beaten out as last game for the Cube by the TMNT tie-in.

      Pretty sure the last one is Just Dance 2015 as per the article above?

        Ah, totally didn't put two and two together like that :P

      Don't look, but I think it's

      Perhaps slightly more fitting than TMNT but the fact that it's an Ubisoft title is a little, I don't know/disappointing/ironic/something.

        I dunno, I think it's kind of fitting if anything. They've been pretty good for support, really. Both on Wii and Wii U, they jumped in early and put out Red Steel and ZombiU which both made great use of the new control schemes in launch titles. And they did the same for the Motion Plus when that came out too, with Red Steel 2.

        People talk about the lacking third party support, but they've still seen it through to the end.

          Ah, I was going to add fitting to my list as well. I had originally written "appropriate" but went to change it and forgot. Just Dance is still a party game that actually makes pretty good use of the wiimote, so I do think it's also fitting.

            Though it's still disappointing that it's nothing I feel compelled to buy at all :P
