Unless they announced SC2HD Online for WiiU you're never going to see Link playable. I wonder if they did end up announcing SC2HD Online for WiiU if it'd get all 3 characters

Now here comes the part where we complain about no Wii U version and no Link.

Edit: Of course I was beaten.

All I wanted was spawn and now ill get both him and Heihachi! Looks like Mcfarlane wasn't a problem with letting them use him again.

Yeah, I can't wait for every post to be about this.

It's not like it isn't a valid complaint or anything. Really, it's just bizzare that Namco, who seems really close with Nintendo these days, would pass on this, especially considering how well this did on Gamecube.

You know a next-gen sandbox spawn game would be amazing...

Why am I doing this to myself, knowing this will never happen :(.

I'll laugh if Charade somehow uses Link's fighting style randomly. Would be worth it for the reactions.

I bought the GC version of SC2 because of Link.

Strange that Namco isn't bringing this to the Wii U. I actually didn't even know SC2 HD was a thing until now. Pretty cool. I may end up getting it in the future, as I remember really enjoying it back then. PSN version for me, I think, though, since my 360 is dead, I don't have much of a choice, actually.

Cool, but where's Link? Easily the best of the platform exclusive characters...

I'm sorry but are you stupid. Link is a Nintendo character so why would Nintendo give NB the rights to use him on consoles that Nintendo don't even own. Seriously what the hell are you guys smoking thinking Link will be in the ps3/360 versions.
