If there is going to be a future console version of Monster Hunter it'll be on the WiiU

At this point, a new metroid and zelda would make me run out and buy a wiiU, but since they haven't announced either of those, i'm staying put.

I think Nintendo should give their less popular ips a chance to shine on Wii u.

I wouldn't mind an HD earthbound or fire emblem with full online capabilities.

I want Kid Icarus and Star Fox. I'd like to see another Kirby. I'm really waiting for a new Metroid. The new controller scheme is perfect.
