Could it be? Is it true? According to a listing by the Brazilian ratings board it’s possible that we could be seeing a Wii U SKU of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 perched up on store shelves alongside an Xbox 360, PS3 and PC release. Of course, it’s always possible that someone took the painstaking time to Photoshop the whole thing for some “lulz”.
According to a spotting by Go Nintendo, the ratings board has appropriately given the game an ‘M’ for Mature rating or ’18+’ certification. This holds some weight only because Go Nintendo later followed up on the post with an additional listing for the possible release window of the Wii U, which seems to set it on the third week of November. While the listing is for a South American release, if we translate that into American greed, it would probably be either November 5th or November 12th. You can take your pick.
The billion dollar holiday prince, Bobby Kotick, probably couldn’t resist the urge to get in on some of that sweet, sweet money that Nintendo is bound to bring with it when launching the new console.
The information really does seem to match up, though. And tomorrow we’re expected to get a full rundown of the Wii U’s pricing and dates from Nintendo, so we’ll be able to tell if the above info is verified or not by the Big ‘N’ soon enough. This probably also puts the editors at Go Nintendo in constipation-mode because if the rumors turn out to be true they can take all the credit for breaking the news first. If it turns out to be false…well…”video game journalism”.
