Wii U Version Of 007 Legends Canned In Australia

Epic Mickey 2, NBA 2K13 and Marvel Avengers all delayed

The Wii U launches in Australia on Friday and several stores will open at midnight so that eager Aussies can get hold of one as quickly as possible. However, three games that won't be available alongside the Wii U Down Under are Epic Mickey 2: Power of Two, NBA 2K13, and Marvel Avengers: The Battle for Earth, all of which have been delayed.

It's even worse for James Bond title 007 Legends, as it's now been revealed that the game will not even see the light of day in Australia as Activision has pulled the rug right from under the British spy and cancelled the game altogether in that region. The reasons for this are unknown at the moment, but it follows the unfortunate news that the studio behind the game, Eurocom, recently suffered large job losses and downsized to just 50 employees.

007 Legends is a mixture of missions from classic Bond films - including the latest box-office sensation Skyfall - but the game has not gone down too well with the critics, a real shame considering Goldeneye 007 was a reasonably impressive first person shooter.

What are your thoughts on this, Australia? Are you disappointed about not being able to play 007 Legends, or did the negative reviews put you off anyway? Let us know in the comments section below.
