Young Justice: Legacy canceled on Wii U & Wii

Young Justice can't seem to catch a break. First the show gets canceled (Thanks, Cartoon Network!) and now the Wii U and Wii versions of Young Justice: Legacy are getting canceled, too.

The heroes of Young Justice have overcome dozens of supervillains over the course of their two seasons on the air, but they just couldn't overcome the forces of Nintendo's consoles. Also, they couldn't overcome their own show's cancellation, but I digress. Developer Little Orbit has confirmed that the Wii U and Wii versions of Young Justice: Legacy have similarly been canceled, doomed to forever remain locked away in the Hall of Justice.

The developer posted on its Facebook page (via Polygon), "We regret that this decision will prevent some fans from playing the game and the finding out what happens in the story. There were a number of reasons ranging from quality issues to lack of retailer support, but know that we didn't make this decision lightly. We are a fairly new company, and unfortunately both of these platforms presented challenges we couldn't overcome."

Legacy was meant to bridge the five-year gap between the show's first two seasons, which would likely have covered Robin's transition to Nightwing, the start of Aqualad's clandestine undercover mission to infiltrate The Light, and the recruitment of new heroes like Wonder Girl, Blue Beetle, and Beast Boy.

Young Justice: Legacy is still set to arrive on November 19 on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and 3DS.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

          To be fair, they wrapped up the current story and just teased something much more interesting.

          I would have adored the possibility of Miguel Ferrer and Michael Ironside speeching at each other.

      Zatanna freeing Blue Beetle from the Reach's control was for me the best scene in the entire series. YJ will be missed.
