It looks like Dark Souls II will not be recieving any post-release DLC and will not be coming to the Wii U.
In a recent interview with Edge Magazine, Takeshi Miyazoe, the lead producer of upcoming hardcore fantasy sequel Dark Souls II, said that neither a Wii U port nor post-release DLC are planned for the title.
In regards to DLC, Miyazoe said that, while the reception of the original Dark Souls’ Artorias of the Abyss DLC expansion was positive, he and his team want to offer gamers a full, complete package right from the beginning this time around:
"For Dark Souls II, we don't even expect any additional downloadable content because we want to deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package from day one. We did do additional content for Dark Souls, but generally downloadable content for Dark Souls II is not really being considered. Buy the package and you'll get the full experience, and you'll have as much fun as anybody else. Spending a couple dollars on certain items does not help the experience. So no free-to-play yet!"
Dark Souls II will be arriving on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 11,2014 and on PC soon after. But as for a Wii U version? Miyazoe said his team never even really considered it:
"Wii U never came up, and we never doubted that decision either. It was more of a company decision, so I wasn't the one that decided this, but I think the audience for the Wii U is a lot different from the audience for Dark Souls.”
It looks like Dark Souls fans won’t have to worry about being nickel and dimed when Dark Souls II releases early next year and the lack of a Wii U port means Miyazoe and his team will be able to devote that much extra time to polishing up the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 versions of the game.
