Earlier in the week we reported on a rumour swarming around the internet that SEGA had postponed the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines indefinitely.

SEGA has now confirmed that this rumour is not true and that the game will be released in the Wii U launch window as planned. That means it'll be on shelves anytime between now and 31st March.

Aliens: Colonial Marines came out this week on other systems, but SEGA had always insisted it would come out later on Wii U due to the extra features needing implementing.

Demiurge Studios has been developing the Wii U version of the game, while Gearbox Software was responsible for the other platforms.

This is indeed welcome news for Wii U owners. Are you interested in picking this one up? Let us know by dropping a comment below.
