I just got my first Wii U game (altough I haven't even got the console itself yet). It's the Join or Die edition of Assassin's Creed III but it didn't come with any manual in it. Doesn't Wii U games come with manuals at all?

When on or in the game, Hit the home button and hit manual.

Ubisoft's manuals are digital nowadays. Or rather in game. (Not physical.)

Just for you.

More games don't come with manuals(to save dem tree's innit ),instead you get a digital one instead.

I dont think any games come with a manual nowadays. Or if they do its just a slip of paper telling you what the buttons do and thats it.

Welcome to the future! Digital manuals, yay! Kinda gonna miss the day physical media passes... but hey, already happening to music and movies, only a matter of time.

I'm a PC player but I'll always have a spot for Nintendo. I grew up as a child as a hardcore Nintendo fanboy and I still love their games. The Legend of Zelda still gives me the magic feeling I had when I was a kid. :)

Yeah I am not to happy about that decision. I remember as a youth ripping open the game box on the drive home from the store (usually Toys R Us) and reading the instruction booklet till I got home. They were great usually they had a backstory in the manual or a list of the enemies it got me even more pumped to play the game once I got home. I guess those days are gone now. In fact I think I brought this up a few months ago when NSMB2 was released.

Yeah, but all Wii games came with manuals so this kinda came as a surprise to me. Oh, and the day video games can only be bought digitally is the day I stop buying new games.

I miss reading instruction manuals that were not only informative, but actually entertaining to read. The WarioWare, World World, and Donkey Kong Country manuals come to mind. The Wii manuals were already fruitless because half of them are in a different language and just give you the basics, but now with 3DS manuals they just stick in a folded flier and ship it off. Things change, for good or bad.

The manual for Unirally for SNES is seriously the best manual ever.

Yeah, I'm going to miss physical manuals. There's just something special about them (and buying physical games in general) that can't be replicated by their digital counterparts.

I have a few old manuals in my drawers (Final Fantasy X, Way of the Samurai, Ace Combat 4, ect).

I only realized recently that 3DS retail games have manuals accessible from the home menu.
That explains why the physical manual for MGS3D was so brief.

I miss the old manual's with my SNES and 64 games. Used to talk about the characters, maybe have a cool looking map and stuff....I wish I appreciated this digital stuff as much.
