In the Nintendo of America presentation it was announced that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 will be a launch game for the Wii U console and Activision were on hand to explain what new features to expect and what they have done to make the Wii U version stand out from the competition.

Capcom have exclusively announced that Monster Hunter 3 will be coming to Europe in March 2013. What we do know is that a 3DS version will release on the same day.

So whilst originally, SEGA had decided not to go to gamescon this year, they’ve changed their mind. Even though they’ve made a shed-ton of people redundant this year already.
