5 Games That Would Be Perfect for the Wii U GamePad

"Nintendo have once again changed the way we play games with the Wii U with its new controller, the GamePad. I’m now filled with a nostalgia – I remember the excitement leading up to and after the Wii’s release, when the internet was rampant with speculation of the possibilities of the Wii Remote." (Katamari Damacy, Nintendo, okami, Pac-Man, Pokemon Snap (VC), Wii U)

Pokemon full adventure HD RPG with collectables earned throughout so you can decorated your pad. Tablet as your pokedex. You can flick out pokeballs with the touch, use the screen as a bug net or camera. Real working ingame for events, when connected online update. Online trading and a community breeding center. Online challenges, free roaming, and ability to make a gym and battle it out. This is something I have wanted for over 10+ years now. Please make this a reality.

Was crossing my fingers to not see Angry Birds on the list. Good.

Imagine if Nintendo would have put some sort of DS emulation? See the top screen on your TV, and the bottom on the gamepad? That would be cool, but only probably work with some games, since it would look funky on some.

I agree with NukaCola, although knowing Nintendo and GameFreak, we'll probably only see a Pokemon Stadium-y type of game for the Wii U. All console Pokemon games have always been like that.

I think it makes more sense for 3DS. Even though you wouldn't get the 3D effect, I would think companies would already be making those games without the two screens matching up. It would look weird to have one image, and only have the top half be in 3D.

That's true, good idea.

id honestly settle for a 3DS port like square did for the ds final fantasy game which i ended up getting the wii version of simply because i love bigger screens

least give me that or give me death lol *kidding on the death part*

i always thought Okami would be perfect for the gamepad, given that they already released Okami HD, a Wii U version would not seem far-fetched, of course it depends whether Capcom still believes whether it will sell or not. It would mean Okami's been to 3 generations of consoles (considering Okamiden for DS is same level as Wii).

other than that, here're my other suggestions, regardless of it's current console availability:

- RTS games like Starcraft, Command and Conquer, Company of Heroes, etc.
- the recent XCom Enemy Unknown, or pretty much any turn-based strategy would be good also.
- JRPGs
- music/rhythm games
- this is not a game, but more like apps like Colors for 3DS, or any drawing app. it would also be nice if it can share not only to Miiverse, but also to other sites like FB, Twitter, Deviantart, etc.
- again more an app, a dedicated eBook app a la Amazon's Kindle. a similar service for Manga is coming to Japan for 3DS, so it's possible it'll be the same for Wii U.

Fatal Frame
This game is perfect for the Wii U. The tablet controller could be used to scan the area for ghost and used to snap pictures to defeat the. Nintendo co-owns the franchise now and I'm certain there will be a Wii U Fatal Frame.

Shantae seems like it would be a perfect match for it.
