Nintendo will be expecting big things from the Wii U, and we expect third-party games to really be Nintendo's saviour... (Nintendo, Wii U)

I would love to see GTA5 for the Wii u

Nintendo never gonna let such game on their console

That's just a waste of a comment bubble! Nintendo has had far more violent games than GTA on their systems and the Wii had some of the more contoversial ones, with MadWorld and Manhunt. Not to mention that not only are they getting the bloodiest and intact version of Ninja Gaiden 3, but they are publishing the game as well...

Corrus posts another comment of negativity on a Nintendo article. What a surprise. I'd be more surprised if he actually made a post that was worth reading.

Corrus, the problem isn't that Rockstar won't put such a game on a Nintendo console. The truth is it's not Nintendo blocking 3rd party games it's that 3rd parties aren't very interested in Wii U.

Ehhh Zombie U and Project Cars will be good, but thats about it.
beerkeg  +   820d ago
So there won't be anything else released on the system?
rufusman91  +   820d ago
Well you know we cant expect 10/10 triple AAA titles when a console first releases.
MEsoJD  +   820d ago
Project Cars.... Yes. ZombieU hasn't shown anything interesting in my opinion, but I've been gaming on consoles/pc the majority of my life so expectations are high.

Also I thought Project Cars was pc exclusive...

@MEsoJD, it was confirmed it will be on Wii U too.
MEsoJD  +   820d ago

I didn't realize the game was coming on multiple platforms. Thanks!!!

I don't know if I would put project cars on that list just yet, we really don't know much about that game other than it will look good! I actually think that Madden 13 could be a system seller to the hardcore sports fanatics. I'm not a Madden fan, but with the game going through so many different changes for this version. The RPG level-up style career mode, along with calling plays and drawing plays might be an interesting enough hook for the game to sell wildly on the new system.

These games can help shape their core audience for the sytem early on in the Wii-U's lifespan. So I do agree with the article that it could help change Nintendo's fortunes if they lead to more and more core games.

I agree with this article.

Aliens colonial marines looks great and so does ZombiU.
WeskerChildReborned  +   820d ago
Yea i'm definitely checkin both out also i'm gonna get the black Wii U if it sells at launch.

I'll be getting AC3, Aliens Colonial Marines, and ZombiU. If any other interesting game is announced then i'll pick it up too.
corrus  +   820d ago
Okay the when you don't believe me you'll see when Rockstar released GTA5

Nintendo needs to change their fortunes?
mike1up  +   820d ago

I was just thiking the same thing! Perhaps the extra "s" in the title was meant to be "/s".
mike1up  +   820d ago
Nice list, however, I am surprised not to see any first party games (or was that the point?).
BitbyDeath  +   820d ago
I'm guessing that was the point with the changing fortunes thing aka steal people away from other consoles, could be wrong though...
JohnApocalypse  +   820d ago
The problem with Colonial Marines is that it is coming after the other versions
I believe they were all delayed until next year.
