Wii U Version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist Won’t Feature Offline, Splitscreen Co-op

Posted on August 5, 2013 AT 02:22pm

Splinter Cell: Blacklist‘s Wii U version won’t contain offline, splitscreen co-op, but still feature all the online multiplayer modes, producer Liu Jim told Nintendo Life.

“In order to ship at the same time as the other consoles, we unfortunately weren’t able to delve into this feature,” Jun told Nintendo Life. “But we think Nintendo gamers will be really excited to get the game at the same time as other consoles.”

So no couch co-op, but still some co-op, plus Spies vs. Mercs. Not the worst thing in the world. This probably has everything to do with the Wii U’s impossibly restrictive one-GamePad setup. Speaking of, said GamePad’s microphone will be how Wii U players communicate in Blacklist‘s online multiplayer.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist launches on PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U August 20 in North America, August 23 in Europe.
