Doing its duty for Nintendo fans?
And it deserves more than a straight port

In today's article, editor - and long-time Call Of Duty advocate - Dom goes beyond the rumours and investigates the reality of whether the shooter franchise...
Is there life after Declassified?
So we're taking this story with a pinch - no, a fistful of salt - but it's an exciting one nonetheless. Writer and 'industry insider' Marcus Sellars claims he has insider information on the next Call Of Duty, namely that it's going to be the fourth entry in the Black Ops subseries, it's set in the modern day and...
So stop asking
Many reading these pages are very interested in what multi-format games are taking the plunge on Nintendo Switch, and one that's been endlessly doing the rounds is Call of Duty: WWII, with the Switch not being listed when the game was revealed. There have been theories, speculation and rumours around a port and who could be...
"That’s a conversation for the ATVI business guys"
A while back we reported on a rumour regarding the new Call of Duty entry coming to the Nintendo Switch, based on the fact that Beenox studio members were seen wearing CoD shirts. For those of you that don't know, Beenox has worked on the Wii U in the past and has had a hand in porting CoD...
Doing its duty for Nintendo fans?
Activision's 2017 Call of Duty outing is taking the series back to its roots, but at the present moment in time the publisher has remained curiously silent on exactly which systems the WWII epic will be coming to. PS4 and Xbox One are a dead cert when it comes to consoles, but the lack of solid confirmation has...
War is hell
Today Activision is hosting a livestream event to officially lift the lid on this year's Call of Duty entry. After the last few instalments pushed the action further and further into the future, the company has decided to turn back the clock and return to World War II, the conflict in which the very first Call of Duty game was based.
No word on when, or if, they'll be back up.
UPDATE: (9:05 CST) It looks like the servers are back up. For now, online for Call of Duty on the Wii will live another day. Evidently, it was some sort of technical issue. As many of you likely remember, the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was shut down for good almost exactly two years ago. Succeeded by the...
Could it come to NX?
Call of Duty: Ghosts was a first for Activision's famous FPS series as it featured an opening segment which was set in space. If you liked that bit - we sure did - then you'll be pleased to know that the franchise could go one better by taking place entirely in this environment. The rumour - as reported by our pals over at
Despite the confirmation of Xbox 360 and PS3 versions
Despite the fact that last year's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare skipped Nintendo's current home system, there were hopes that Black Ops 3 - the next entry in Activision's yearly shooty-shooty-boom-boom franchise - would still arrive on Wii U. Slim hopes admittedly, but hopes all the same. It's...
Assume nothing, hope for a belated Fall release
Call of Duty: Black Ops III has had its big reveal, and confirmed platforms for the usual triumvirate - PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Treyarch, the lead developer and source of some hope for a Wii U version courtesy of the studio's considerable experience with the Nintendo system, has also confirmed that as...
It's Spring-time, which means the inevitable limbo that comes with a new Call of Duty release; the Wii U had two CoD games in a row before missing out on the most-recent entry. Now we have Black Ops III on the way, and the presence of a Nintendo Network ID registration option on the franchise website has sparked rumours that the latest...
It's that time again
Back when the Wii U was young, Activision supported the console by making it play host to its yearly Call of Duty franchise. The console launched with Black Ops 2 and a year later would get Call of Duty: Ghosts. However, last year's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare didn't make the jump to the Wii U, which seemed to signal the...
"I’d much rather be where Nintendo is, with a differentiated platform"
Third-party support has been one of Nintendo's biggest issues since the launch of the Wii U. The console has struggled to attract external developers and publishers in the same way that Sony and Microsoft's systems have, and there are many games which could have made their way...
You can see it, but can't play it
Update: This stage has now been removed from view, thanks NPaonessa. Original Article: Though the latest entry in the Call of Duty Series — Advanced Warfare — is yet to be confirmed for Wii U, there's still a small but dedicated group of players seemingly enjoying the franchise on Nintendo's system. For those...
Better late than never?
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is old news to most gamers now — it was a launch title for Nintendo's current home console back in 2012 — but Activision has only just gotten around to granting Wii U owners access to the fan-favourite Nuketown 2025 multiplayer map. The map has been available on other systems for ages, and many...
Could we be getting a version after all?
When Activision announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, confirmation of a Wii U edition of the game was sadly lacking. While this is the first entry in the series to get a genuine push on next-generation platforms, PS3 and Xbox 360 players will still be able to join the party, albeit with a version...
Still no official word on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Wii U
Neversoft, the developer behind the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, has merged with Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward to form a brand new "super studio". A memo written by CEO of Activision Publishing Eric Hirshberg — and subsequently obtained by Giant Bomb — outlines the deal:...
Last gen versions are coming, but will Wii U be included?
Activision has shown off the reveal trailer for the latest entry in its massively popular Call of Duty series, and this time you'll be playing with even more futuristic toys. The footage for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare shows exo-suits, hoverbikes and special gloves which allow the wearer...
Free Fall, free-for-all
Well, looky here, if it isn't that most precious of treasures — a piece of DLC for a Wii U game! The online community for Call of Duty: Ghosts may not exactly be thriving on Wii U, but Activision has nevertheless treated us to a piece of free downloadable content in the shape of a brand new theatre of war. Free Fall is the...
Grabbed by the ghoulies
With all of the noise made in the wake of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's success — everything from sky-high sales figures to unfortunate ad campaigns, or the rise, fall and subsequent embalming of developer Infinity Ward — it's easy to lose sight of just how phenomenal and innovative that game really was. Genres evolve...
Derek Acorah investigates
Are we alone? Are there things that happen in this life that cannot be explained without consideration of the paranormal? Are there actually any ghosts in Call of Duty: Ghosts? These are questions that have haunted mankind for decades, but we're here — with the help of acclaimed UK spiritual medium Derek Acorah — to...
Comes armed with minor fixes
Developer Infinity Ward has launched the latest update patch for the recently released Call of Duty: Ghosts. The patch covers all platforms, including the Wii U. The update has given the shooter title improved operations functionality along with some bug fixes. A band-aid has been applied to private match settings,...
In space, no one can hear you shoot Federation goons
Call of Duty games tend to open with a bit of a bang, and Ghosts is no different. The opening level starts off relaxed enough, with a battle-hardened father regaling his sons with tales of valour, but it soon takes a turn for the worst as an orbital space station starts taking pot-shots at...
Eurogamer's Digital Foundry issues its verdict
Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts may not have reached the standard series heights with its sales — perhaps due to a combination of wearied franchise veterans, a middling critical reaction and the impending arrival of the One and PS4 — but it's nevertheless one of the biggest releases of the year...
Rupees really are important now
When Eiji Aonuma announced that collecting rupees would be more important than ever in the new 3DS Zelda adventure, A Link Between Worlds, he probably never realized that significance would carry over to the Call of Duty franchise. It seems the latest COD title — Ghosts — contains a
Not quite a band of brothers
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be rocking a new clan system when it launches soon, allowing fans to form cross-platform battle groups for the game's popular online multiplayer modes. However, something troubles us about the official FAQ for this element of the shooty-shooty, bang-bang game: Clans in Call of Duty: Ghosts...
New online Extinction mode is teased
Call of Duty has featured a 'Zombies' mode in the past few entries, but it looks like Activision is going to change things up a little for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Instead of slaying the undead, you'll be facing opponents from a planet far, far away. According to leaked screenshots — and a post on the Call of...
Assuming direct control
Before we get started, some introductions are in order. I'm Rory, and I'm relatively new here. You may have heard my voice on some recent videos, and for that I can only apologise. I've been tasked by the Nintendo Life bosses with creating original video content for the site, and so far, it's been kind of a mixed bag; on the...
Publisher considers Wii U to be "next generation"
In a move which has surprised absolutely nobody, Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Ghosts is the next entry in the unreasonably popular men-shooting-men franchise. It's expected to launch on November 5th. A recent listing by a Spanish retailer gave us hope that the Wii U would be getting...
A portable companion to the regiments on the home front
With first-person shooters often making more of an impact on home consoles, n-Space is working hard to offer DS gamers something that can be enjoyed as well when Call of Duty: Black Ops launches later this year on 9th November. The company previously brought three other titles in the series to the system, including Modern Warfare, Modern..
