Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U canceled

Gearbox's critically-panned Aliens: Colonial Marines will no longer see release on Wii U. A port for Nintendo's HD console was originally supposed to release in March, but Sega has finally confirmed that it is no longer happening, telling both Kotaku and Polygon about the game's new status.

The port was being handled by Demiurge Studios, and was supposedly the best-looking version of the game. Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford claimed that Demiurge "did amazing work," but that the Wii U release would be up to Sega to "figure out."

Given Wii U's light library, a new game might have been welcomed by Nintendo fans. However, given the game's horrendous reviews, perhaps Nintendo owners were spared.
