Telltale’s The Walking Dead Combo Pack (Season 1 and 2) listed for Wii U on GAME
Posted on 7 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Wii U | 16 Comments
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series could have a chance of landing on Wii U. UK retailer GAME has listed “The Walking Dead Combo Pack” – a package that would include Season 1 and 2.
If GAME’s listing is accurate, The Walking Dead Combo Pack will be available on October 30. I’d take the listing with a grain of salt though – this is far from confirmed.

Before Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS hit store shelves, Nintendo said that all characters in the game would be seeing their own amiibo. So it comes as no surprise that retailer GAME has put up tentative listings for both Mewtwo and Lucas. They’re DLC, but still characters in the game, so this was ultimately expected. Maybe Nintendo will have something to say about this at E3 next week.
