You Won’t Believe How Dry Nintendo’s January Is

Last month and this month, Nintendo is busy launching the Wii U. And next month? It's busy not releasing games in Japan.

The company's January schedule, which was recently updated on December 3, is shockingly empty. Here, have a look for yourself. (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

I dont even like Nintendo anymore, but c'mon people:

Its only ONE month. There are gone ther games u probably dont own yet, that u can still buy for your wii/wii u or 3ds

@donbear I have no idea what you are saying.
FriedGoat  +   941d ago
dunno, If you owned a 3ds at launch then you know DRY. This will probably last a good 6 months.

actually i'm not shocked because i warned you all about this a few months ago before the Wii U released. it's a waste of money until they get serious about games for core gamers. start collecting your dust. busy with my black friday ps3 backlog.
RuperttheBear  +   942d ago
It's been the ps3 that's been getting dust really, barely anything worth buying this year. It's been really poor.
Buff1044  +   941d ago
It's easy to have a PS3 backlog when the system's been our since 2006. Ah, you N4G PS3 fanboys have no perspective.

1upgamer,

Aliens: Colonial Marines wii u may be the best console version maybe...., the pc version will make the ps3/360/wii u versions look like psp games

lets be realistic, no console game is ever the best version of anything when pc is involved

pc brings a nuke to nerf war!

Yeah, it's gonna be a real ball to play a slightly better looking version of Aliens: Colonial Marines on Wii U. That surely is when the next-gen kicks in.

Startig to get sick of all the negative articles about everything...
1upgamer99  +   942d ago
LMAO, I know! I got a ton of disagrees with PROOF of what I was saying was TRUE...I did not have to say anything,the articles from GEARBOX said it all!!! If you are a gamer you like games that are outstanding, not because its Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo. If a game looks great, but is not fun, oh well.. How much do you want to bet the disagrees did not even touch the links I posted...Sorry guys, but for at least a year or two Nintendo is on top. Oh, gosh I am going to disagree...LOL ...These people that are fanboys disagree with the DEVELOPERS...

i disagreed because i think its cool and hip to give shadow disagrees on N4G.

Also I cry myself to sleep every night because I have no friends. You jealous?

No, I think they disagree with defensive comments that really don't relate to the article

1: This is an article about January, not Febuary's line-up.

2: The game you mentioned, has yet to be even be announced for the single region the article was talking about.
Moncole  +   942d ago
People only click on the negative articles and comment on them.
Jadedz  +   942d ago
There's still a couple of launch games I have yet to purchase
The selection might be dry for those of you whom own a PS360, or game on a PC.

Go wild! There should be some more in Summer of 2013 to look forward to.

another nintendo-bashing kotaku article, who didnt see that coming. When will they get banned from this site for being trolls? its already gone on too long.
MartinB105  +   942d ago
I've still got Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower in my Wii backlog, so I think I'll survive until February. :)

I'm really looking forward to Rayman Legends though.
Drainage  +   942d ago
almost as dry as PS3's 2006,2007,2012 or 360s year minus gears of war8
MaxXAttaxX  +   942d ago
Haha... whaaat!?

PS3 launched at the end of 2006 and we got games like Resistance and MotorStorm In 2007, we got Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, Warhawk among many others.
In 2008 we got LBP, Resistance 2, Valkyria Chronicles, Metal Gear Solid 4... you know, I'm not gonna bother to continue.
Get out of here with that "dry" nonsense.

I think he is referring to the post launch drought that happens to most consoles. Those games didn't come out monthly right after launch.

Speaking of Heavenly Sword I remember it was delayed a few time. The should it on an episode of Heroes when the game was supposed to be coming out
PS4isKing_82  +   942d ago
Kotaku are just a bunch of immature fanboys. No different from the ones who comment on this site everyday. Just ignore them and enjoy the games and consoles. That's what they're for.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   942d ago
Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS February 4, 2013. cant wait.
millzy102  +   942d ago
well it is january most games come out befor Xmas to get the money's most people are skint in January anyway.
millzy102  +   942d ago
do people like to disagree for the point of it, you know most games do come out before Xmas (q4) and january is always a dry month for games that is a fact. the next big rush of games is spring (afew trickle out here and there) then summer holidays because games make more money during holiday seasons. no games are realy coming out on january for ps3 that I know of and if they are there not going to be blockbusters.
scissor_runner  +   942d ago
Still got 5 games to buy. Plus 40 wii games to play on the new box. Give us an bsp editorrrrrrrrr!

GoldenElf  +   942d ago
I guess we're supposed to disregard the 100+ releases from October and November?
Sugreev2001  +   941d ago
Droughts longer than a month long are a yearly thing.This period usually helps finish off games you had left in between.
ozzywazzy  +   941d ago
They'll be fine. I'm sure they have their sing star, dance whatever, Nintendo land, or wii u fit to keep them busy for a while. That's all they seem to play on Nintendo consoles anyway.
