Call of Duty: Ghosts Trailer - Updated Wii U GamePad Version

Coffee Beans
Earlier this week, Activision released an "Official Call of Duty: Ghosts Single Player Campaign Trailer".

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Call of Duty: Black Ops II on the Wii U, as you can see herehere, and here, and I'm looking forward to seeing how some of the changes, like sliding, in Ghosts might change up gameplay and strategy in online multiplayer.

While Call of Duty: Ghosts will be releasing for the PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 5th, I am most interested in the Wii U version of the game. Why?

Well, there are multiple reasons, but the biggest reasons are Call of Duty: Ghosts' Wii U GamePad Off-TV Play feature, free online multiplayer, and the optional Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls for when my GamePad battery gets low.

I have updated the "Official Call of Duty: Ghosts Single Player Campaign Trailer", to show how I will most likely spend the majority of my time playing the game, showing the trailer on just the Wii U GamePad.

Brew yourself some coffee, and watch my updated Wii U version below!

The Brew

If you watched the original trailer, and my Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts' latest trailer, you probably noticed I also updated the very end of it with some of the features Nintendo could use to help advertise the Wii U version of the game this holiday season.

While it is unclear still if Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Wii U will receive any DLC, being that I have never downloaded any DLC for any game (none that I can remember anyway), it isn't a huge issue for me, even though I do hope Nintendo will help get any DLC for Ghosts to the Wii U as well.

Are any of you planning on buying Call of Duty: Ghosts when it releases this year, and if so, which version are you planning on buying?

Also, do any of you think Nintendo should use the Wii U's "free online multiplayer" as a selling point for the system and games on it this holiday season, considering both the newer consoles will charge for online multiplayer?

You can pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts from below, and get release day delivery by selecting "Two-Day Shipping" when checking out:



  1. I absolutely think that Wii U should be touting its free multiplayer every chance it gets. I am someone who already gets an Xbox Gold and PlayStation Plus subscription, and the fact that those will cover the whole family on Xbox One and PS4 makes it less of an issue for me, but some families may be looking at all 3 consoles and see that the Wii U is not only cheaper, but has free online? That could be a differentiator for families on a budget.

    That being said, I suspect PlayStation 4 for me on this one. My son and I already have a large friends list of CoD players on the PSN, so we're much more likely to be able to play with our friends on there than say, Wii U or Xbox. It sounds like a good number of those friends are planning to pick up PS4's as well.

  2. "That being said, I suspect PlayStation 4 for me on this one."

    *Starts waving hand at monitor
    You will get the Wii U version. You will get the Wii U version. Wii U version get you will.

    It's kind of funny, because out of all my friends that I have known since junior high/high school, ONE is completely sold on the PlayStation 4. Already has it reserved. The others that game? Many are completely not sure about anything now. They wanted the Xbox One, BEFORE they knew the price. Once the price and all the always online stuff started happening, it really made many of them unsure. I don't know one of them that has it pre-ordered yet.

    If you're office by any chance gets a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts for the Wii U to "review", I would like to know what you and your son think about the GamePad play and optional splitscreen options on the Wii U version.

    But yeah, I would like to see some more humorous ads this holiday season. Something like the Geico or older Netflix ads:
    "2+2 = Alphabet?" "CORRECT!"

    Something maybe like:
    Question - "What does the Wii U's free online multiplayer equal?"
    Answer - "Not having to pay to play Call of Duty: Ghosts online this holiday season?" "CORRECT!!!!!!!!"

    Then go into a spill about the Wii Us features and games.

  3. And now that we have the Xbox One on tap... I get the feeling I'll have to figure out what system to get it for. My son's got a much longer psn friends list that plays CoD. My bigger list is on Xbox. Honestly I suspect the Wii U is going to be used mostly with the titles specific to it that don't come out on other platforms. Games like Mario Kart will be what me and the kids are most interested in on there.

    This is turning into a 'broke' fall between those three consoles, but I should have plenty of options going forward.

  4. I try to do my part. I'm a giver. ;)
