Batman: Arkham City makes 'fantastic use' of Wii U controller

Little is known about the Wii U version of Batman: Arkham City. In fact, all we know is that it exists.

There are those that know much more about the game, however. For example, Epic Games' Mark Rein has seen the game running on Nintendo's next console. Speaking at Game Developers Conference, Rein noted that the Unreal Engine-powered game won't be a straight port of the PC/PS3/Xbox 360 game.

After a quick video showing off the Wii U version of Batman: Arkham City and Aliens: Colonial Marines, Rein said that the Wii U version of the game makes "fantastic use of the touch controller." Unfortunately, he wouldn't elaborate on exactly how Arkham City would make use of touch controls. Batman's arsenal of gadgets certainly invites touch-screen adaptation.

Last time the Wii U version of the game was mentioned, Rocksteady vaguely teased that the Wii U version of the game would "play to the strengths of the console."
