And The Hits Keep Coming (Young Justice: Legacy News)

Hey Speed Readers,

After the disappointing news that the critically-acclaimed and much loved, Young Justice won’t be returning next season most fans who owned a console were at least happy that they could count on a decent game coming up in a couple of months to ease the pain. Put that thought out of your mind. Young Justice: Legacy has been pushed back yet again to September 2013!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for developers taking their time with games and making sure they get it right but I can’t help but think that this has more to do with porting the game to the new Wii U game console than further fine-tuning the game itself. Which is completely within their right. It makes sense that you would want to maximize the avenues through which the consumer can experience your products. I just hope that they are taking this extra time to also polish up any details that really need polishing. I am not going to be very happy when I get this game in September and it is full of bugs and graphical glitches.

Unfortunately this game being pushed back yet again kind of mirrors the way that Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network treated the show with (what seemed like) endless hiatuses and delays. I just have to wonder what kind of sales they will be expecting in September with no T.V. show, action figure line or comic book series going to generate buzz and interest. Sure the DC license is still valuable and recognizable and I’m sure plenty of stalwarts will still pick up the game but you want that casual/kid gamer money too and often that depends on active licenses.

Young Justice: Legacy will now be available September 10th, 2013 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC and Nintendo 3DS gaming consoles and devices.

What do you all think? Is Young Justice: Legacy being pushed back as disappointing to you as it is to me? Do you think the extra time will be well utilized or simply lessen the chances of this game doing well? Please let us know in the comments below. Special thanks to Youngjusticelegacy.com for the screenshots.

    no regular wii… so i’m not buying… kind of wish game companies would produce new stuff for more than just a couple years for the “old” consoles… not like the Wii is really that old… or is it? I guess I’m just not a serious enough gamer…. i read too many comics… ha

      You know I’m not a huge gamer either really at least not when it comes to the current generation of games. I’m a 16-bit and below fan at heart which is probably why all of The Flash’s games have been a blast for me to play. I mostly stick to superhero-related or fighting games for the most part nowadays when it comes to the current consoles. Although somehow I’ve ended up with both a PS3 and a Xbox 360 so I won’t be missing out. Heck even if I didn’t have any consoles I would probably buy the game anyway. Not only is it the first time in history we will be able to play as Kid Flash this could very likely be the last video game featuring Wally West in any capacity for a very long time. I also just generally love Young Justice and really wanted it to succeed.

      As surprising as it may seem, the WII has been around for a little over 6 years. It has had one of the longer shelf lives than most other systems in earlier generations. This gaming generation in particular has stuck around longer before their next-gen replacements.

    Wii has been around for six years? (Damn years keep flying by.)

    Somehow I’m not surprised at this turn of events. I’ll be even less surprised if it turns out Wally gets replaced with Barry or Bart because even though it would make no sense for the first….when has DC ever made sense?

    *sigh* At least I finally finished reading Flash: Forward. (Thank god the cut-off fingers barely looked like fingers. ew. and I’m now guessing that Turbine is the best ‘detailed’ character for being revealed as Zoom if the new Zoom is time-past oriented.)
