Injustice For Wii U Doesn’t Support Content Unlocks With The iOS Version

By Spencer . April 16, 2013 . 5:13pm

injusInjustice: Gods Among Us connects with the iOS version. Players will be able to unlock content for the console game while playing Injustice for iOS and vice versa on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 using a Warner Bros. ID.


This feature is not in the Wii U version. Siliconera received a Wii U copy of Injustice from Warner Bros. which confirms the cross device content unlocks are not in the Wii U release. The Wii U version has a few unique features like off TV play and the option to put a move list on the gamepad. You can toggle these options in the "gamepad screen" tab on the menu.

    And they couldn’t just have all that stuff unlocked by default in the Wii U version because…?

    • Brion Valkerion

      They would have to unlock it on the other consoles as well then, for people without ios devices.

      either way its on the disc, just takes some time to unlock. not like they cant get it.

      • Spirit Macardi

        This makes it sound like the content requires an iOS device to unlock it, and since the Wii U version is incompatible they’re stripping all of it from that version.

        Maybe that isn’t the case, but the way it’s written makes it seem that way.

    So this means you don’t have to buy the iOS version to unlock the costumes in the U version.

    …and that’s good. Am I right?

    • MasterScrub

      Well it’s not so much ‘buy’ as it is ‘grind’ since the iOS version is free, it just takes forever to unlock everything,

  • riceisnice

    I guess this would be an “Injustice” for all the Wii U owners! HAAW

    • PABLO Rapetti Perez

      Thanks man, Im working and your silly comment made my laugh haha

  • Tails the Foxhound

    So…the content is actually still there to unlock though right?

  • plsburydoughboy

    I checked to see what content they’re referring to…. backgrounds, portraits, icons. Stuff that has no effect on gameplay. Even if this wasn’t on the Wii U version, who cares?

  • WiiU is screwed again

    • Screwed out of useless things that have no effect on gameplay, apparently.

      • I’d say playing the Wii U version and not being able to unlock alternate costumes is kind of screwed. We have no pre-order alt’s, and as of now no dlc/season passed mentioned either, unlike the other consoles. Idc too much though, just glad i’m able to play injustice in the car with my Wii U :D

          Reading comprehension isn your strong area, no?
          IT says you cannot use the iOS feature to unlock… With the iOS version, you can play the game and unlock content just by playing, and you can transfer that over to the console version….. All this means is that Wii U players will have to unlock on their consoles instead of on the iOS version…. not exactly game breaking.

          • What are YOU talking about? I’m saying that as of now we aren’t able to unlock those costumes at all.

  • Jesus Reyes

    Who cares the content sucks anyways. The Wii u version is still good. Dam haters!!!!

  • Nikola Stanojevic

    Still getting it anyway, I play fighting games for long periods of time and since ps4 is not going to have retro, and the wii u version also looks a bit better im getting it.
