Fighting from beyond the grave

Little Orbit has announced that Young Justice: Legacy — based on the recently cancelled Young Justice animated series — will be released this September for the all major platforms, including 3DS and Wii U. The game was previously announced for release this Spring on the Wii, but those plans have apparently been scrapped.

While some fans were worried that the action RPG's release would be in jeopardy because of the show's cancellation, Little Orbit took to their Facebook page to explain their reasoning for the delay:

The change in the street date has nothing to do with the current status of the show, this decision was made by Little Orbit. We realize this sounds like a long way off, and we would like to apologize for the long wait. We take the game very seriously, and the decision to push the title back was difficult.

We didn't know it when we named the title, but as the show airs its final episodes, "Young Justice: Legacy" has taken on an entirely new meaning for the fans.

Many of fans have also asked about the hardware platforms, which have shifted around a little. At launch the game will be available on Microsoft X360, Sony PS3, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii-U, and PC on Steam.
