Rayman Legends and NSMBWU looked really fun.

I was hoping for a new Metroid or F-Zero but both of these launch titles look like a lot of fun and should make great use of the new gamepad.

Hopefully we see a robust comeback for platformers that this generation has lacked outside of a few game franchises such as Rayman,LittleBig Planet, Mario, and various arcade type ones.

Rayman Legends looks far more interesting than the Mario offerings.

I loved Rayman origins on ps3. But, after playing it I felt done with platformers. I have to wonder if gaming as its matured, went away from platformers for a reason? Kiddies and retro lovers still get it of course. But, after you play Mario & rayman on wiiU...where to next? What will the system offer after the kiddish games you've finished? ZombieU is a start....asscreed3.....???
