A lot of Wii U games are going to get released in 2013. From Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3, Bayonetta 2, The Wonderful 101 and many others. Which games are you looking forward to? And which games are you going to buy?
Im srry but this isn't a good list. The WiiU is missing important third party titles like Dead space 3,Tomb raider,crysis 3, bioshock, Metro: last light, dead island and Naruto ninja storm 3. Most of the games on that list are "meh". There are no third party games on that list that make you go "I need this". Nintendo better do something quick because is not appealing at all.
Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3, Metro: last light, Dead Island are canceled/not being developed. Bayonetta 2, Lego City: Undercover, The Wonderful 101 are great games I guess. Games listed are not all games, but some great titles.
I'm pretty sure most Ninty fans bought their WiiU to play their Pikmins, Mario, Zelda, Starfox , Metroid etc. so it'll be best we leave them alone.
Those are good games though... Also I'm betting a lot of the Wii U owners on n4g own more than one system. I think most people on n4g do.
Finally Someone gets it.
I know I did.
Mika I actually agree with you on this one, this list isn't all that impressive. Nintendo promised strong third party support and well its starting to look like they lied. Also thanks for not using the words weak and rubbish in your post that is very refreshing.
Yeah. 1st-person/gray-and-brown-envi ronment/realistic/gun-toting games. Just what the industry needs more of. <The WiiU is missing important third party titles like Dead space 3,Tomb raider,crysis 3, bioshock, Metro: last light, dead island and Naruto ninja storm 3.>
First of all, Naruto is not an important third party game. Secondly, while I agree the Wii U should get more third party support, the dev kits were handed out late into the development of these games. I would rather the ports that are made not be shoddy and rushed out. Particularly in the case of THQ, it was stated that a lot of work would have had to be done in order to get the game out. Given THQ's financial situation, just getting the PS3 version done was a chore.
Do not equate Bioshock to games like DS3, TR, Crysis, Metro or Dead Island. Bioshock slaps those gray/brown/realistic games in the face with one of the most beautiful art designs in gaming (my opinion of course). And it may be an fps with guns, but it's not JUST that, it's many other things as well.
get tomb raider outta that list, that game is trash as far as ive heard.
@Mika You wouldn't buy a Wii U (let alone this list of games on it) anyway, so why are you even complaining?
To each their own. I'm personally looking forward to the exclusives of Rayman Legends, Lego City, Monster Hunter, and Wonderful 101.
welp, bayonetta 2 disproves your comment. And if pikmin 3 integrates the new panorama view tech, giving the player an "ants eye view" from the ground up, allowing one to feel like they are actually small as they search for nearby items up in trees all around your living room, then . hohh boyy . hhohh boiyyy
Vita and 3da games do already. That you can look anywhere mechanic is great.
@Mika More games then the ones announced already will be released this year. Expect E3 to big for all 3 gaming companies this year.
How on Earth is it not a good list? It's a pretty great list and there are many more games to be announced in the coming months. None of the games you listed are any better than some of the top games on the article's list.
Wheres my Metroid Prime 4 !!!
Pikmin 3 is my most anticipated Wii U exclusive currently announced. Interested in Wonderful 101 and LEGO City Undercover too. I play my multi-platform games elsewhere because my friends are elsewhere for MP/co-op, or I can earn trophies/achievements on the others. If Nintendo had a trophy system, I'd probably buy more games for the Wii U. May end up getting Aliens Colonial Marines for Wii U anyway though since it has unique gamepad features.
IMO The only interesting one out of those games was Lego City undercover. Probably this and zombiu would be the first few games i get when i have the spare cash to get a wii u :D
wii u simply doesn't have enough games to compete with the upcoming console launches from sony and microsoft this fall.
You mean the unannounced systems with no announced games? Yeah, pretty tough to compete with that. Somehow, I think Nintendo will make it through alright.
It's far too early. E3 2013 will have tons of game announcements on all consoles.
A lot of late released ports on this list.... Kinda dissapointed feels like i bought a white elephant now
Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 are...? Not to mention Nintendo Land and Mario U, that's more exclusives than Microsoft had during 2012.
Guys... Since the generation of Wii, Xbox360 and PS3, most gamers own two consoles. Wii U owners for the most part got the console for the excellent 1st and 2nd party games. A majority of Wii U owner will also own a PS4 (me included) or a Xbox720 for the great 3rd party games that do not see a Wii U release. So the real debate is which two console combo best fits your needs. I personally will be a Wii U/PS4 user. Yes I know there will be a few who end up owning all three but I doubt they will represent the majority. The bottom line is Nintendo and Sony have the best 1st and 2nd party games portfolio without question.
I don't think the wiiu will be starved for 3rd mp games at all... this is going to be similar to the ps2, where the "stronger" consoles are't advanced enough to leave the weaker system behind and in fact are held back by it. Or, more recently the 360/ps3/pc: the games will be made for the first out, lowest common denominator and ported up.
Well no matter how you slice it... the one console era is over. Wii U/PS4 is my gaming combo of choice. The 1st and 2nd party gaming franchises from Nintendo and Sony are just superior to anything Microsoft can put forth.
I'll definitely put a PS4 next to my Wii U but instead of the new Xbox I will be picking up a new graphics card for my pc unless they really blow me away with their exclusives.
I'm buying a Wii U & PS4 also. I sold my XBOX 360, it just wasn't for me.
Same here. Ps4/wiiU will make a killer 2 system combo.
Really solid list considering it doesnt even include some of the other Nintendo brand titles we will see this year.
