Nintendo: There are lots of fantastic Wii U games to come in 2013

Nintendo has promised that there will be lots of fantastic Wii U games to play in 2013 as the company look to follow up a "strong Q1" with another great show at E3. (Nintendo, Wii U)

I hope Retro will be releasing something this year. I don't want to wait for an amazing AAA Nintendo game. I also am wondering what Miyamoto is working on. He has done some different stuff, Mario, Starfox, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Pikmin. I really hope its a new platform franchise and not something like Pikmin. I like Pikmin, but we get part 3 soon, so I am hoping for a new Platform with new characters.
Deku-Johnny  +   723d ago
Wasn't Miyamoto one of the people they announced were working on a new IP?
metroid32  +   723d ago
He's working on an FPS.
Old McGroin  +   723d ago
A new Star Fox would be brilliant as long as they don't drag it down the RPG route. A new 3D Mario would be great as well but I'm getting a bit tired of him to be honest! F-Zero would be very welcome as well! Think the new Zelda game isn't gonna be around until 2014, loved the realistic look shown on the Wii U tech demo a few months back but heard they're sticking to the cartoon graphics :( Not sure about Pikimin, never played it before but the videos I've seen for part 3 are a small bit underwhelming, are you just a guy with a glass bowl on his head who fires little colourful men at garden stuff?

Yeah, Nintendo really need some new IPs.
AJBACK2FRAG  +   723d ago
Dude really Pikmin 1 and 2 were triple A games in my opinion. The controls are so fun just to use nevermind the actual games which were are top shelf stuff, brilliant stuff from the master. I'm looking very, very forward to Pikmin 3 and GTA U.
Kingofwiiu, Aliens Colonial Marines and Wonderfull 101 especially look insane! (>'o')>∞!

The only Pikmin I've played was in Nintendo Land but that was enough to convince me to get Pikmin 3.

Old McGroin, before saying Nintendo needs new IPs maybe you should try their current IPs first :)
yeahokchief  +   722d ago
hehe best of luck to you with mario, starfox, zelda, and donkey kong but they did not mention a single title like that in the article.

singstar and monsterhunter are the only games they announce in the article. pretty sad.

Yeah right, Sing Party is a fantastic game

-_-
PopRocks359  +   723d ago
Sing Party wasn't even on this list.
SandWitch  +   723d ago
Lol, did you even read the article?

"We've got a lot of fantastic titles - Monster Hunter, Ninja Gaiden, Sing Party, fantastic titles for everyone"
Kingofwiiu  +   723d ago
Monster Hunter Ultimate , Wonderfull 101 , Rayman Legends , Pikmin 3 , ALiens colonial marines , Game and Wario , Project cars , NFSMW , Sniper Ghost warrior , Fist of the north star 2 , etc etc.

Ninja gaiden 3 razors edge and scribblenauts if you live in Europe.

And many many more to be announced.
XXXL  +   723d ago
None of those impress me at all. Give me Zelda, metroid, etc.
Kingofwiiu  +   723d ago
@XXXL . None of those impress you at all ? Then you must have a terrible taste in gamming. Not my/our problem.

Pikmin 3 - Huge.
Rayman Legends- Huge
Monster Hunter Ultimate- Huge
Bayonetta 2-Huge
Wonderfull 101 - Huge

Games like Lego city.
ZeekQuattro  +   723d ago
Nice to see someone one who wants Fist of the North Star 2. I started playing the original again after about a year. I forgot how addicting it was.
Trago1337  +   723d ago
WTF is Retro Working on?!?!?!?
AznGaara  +   723d ago
When The Wonderful 101 and Beyonetta 2 get releases dates, I'll buy a Wii-u.

DivineAssault  +   723d ago
we shall see what they have incoming thats so great.. Rayman & Bayonetta is all i can think of thats been announced so far..
MultiConsoleGamer  +   723d ago
Jaw dropping announcement at E3.
Mario Universe?
tweet75  +   723d ago
hoping for mario galaxy 2 , a new zelda game and a new metroid that would be a good year!
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   723d ago
I know u mean Galaxy 3.
XxWalksOfShamexX  +   723d ago
No doubt, there is going to be a 3D mario in the future, but I don't think it will be a galaxy title. IDK, the seem to do something new with the 3D mario franchise every console cycle.
StarCSR  +   722d ago
Mario Galaxy 2? ;)
wiiulee  +   723d ago
there alot of good games coming out for wiiu, wonderful 101, bayonetta, rayman, smash bros, ghost sniper, aliens colonial...pikmin, im sure there are alot more games that nintendo is not announcing yet and there should be so they stay ahead of the competition...
Ilovetheps4  +   723d ago
I don't know why, but I have high hopes for Lego City Undercover. It just looks fun to me and I can't wait to try it out. Hopefully the game turns out well.
Neonridr  +   723d ago
looks great. And while I love the earlier Lego games like Star Wars, the fact that this is completely unique and original makes it even more exciting. And the graphics look very sharp for a Lego game.
Neonridr  +   723d ago
I think Nintendo needs at least one of the big three to release this year if they want any hope of staying alive. With Zelda almost certainly being targeted for a 2014 release, that leaves a Galaxy style Mario or a Metroid game. Here's hoping they can pull off a miracle and release both this year.

They need to have that game defining 1st party game to get people on board.
PopRocks359  +   723d ago
My guess is they will announce something big at E3 and release it on or after the holidays this year. Of course I said the same thing about E3 last year and I was pretty mistaken (unless you count Bayonetta 2 for Wii U as a big announcement).
Venox2008  +   723d ago
For me Bayo 2 is one of the best announcements ever, I actually was sad when there werent any announcements about it from sega, so Bayo2 for me is a must..
ElectricKaibutsu  +   723d ago
Why does everyone want another Mario Galaxy? I'm still waiting for my Mario 64 sequel, where you have a castle to explore.
Deku-Johnny  +   723d ago
The main things I want hear from E3 are what is Retro and Monolith working on for the Wii U?
Neonridr  +   723d ago
A game with the sheer scale of Xenoblade Chronicles with the HD graphics of the Wii U is putting my mind in a spin...
BlackWolf  +   723d ago
It would be epic if they reveal their games at the E3. So far, they have done good jobs.

It's looking really, really, good for Nintendo at the moment , which is great don't you think!
Thepcz  +   723d ago
goes without saying
they would say they though.

they wouldnt say 2013 will be a totally shit year for wiiu, please dont buy one as you are wasting your time :l
younghavok  +   723d ago
you really cant argue with that
mochachino  +   723d ago
Certainly:

Zelda
Metroid
Proper mario game

Nintendo systems always had good games coming, the problem is there's never enough good games released each year due to terrible 3rd party support.
Drainage  +   723d ago
oooh shit ...Starfox Metroid Smash Bros Trailers at E3. Playable are Zelda, Mario U, mario Kart, F-Zero, Yoshi U, Kirby 3ds. + 2 new IP teaser trailers. E3 2013 GET READY SON WHAT
AJBACK2FRAG  +   722d ago
This guy knows what he's talking about! ^^^^^
jay2  +   723d ago
Isn't Monster hunter the only excluive game thats on that list
millzy102  +   723d ago
rayman legends, wonderful 101and lego city are exlusives aswell as bayonetta 2. obviously pikmin 3 (but im not a fan of pikmin). quite a few coming out this year and probably more to be announced. im only really waiting on rayman legends and maybe bayonetta 2 if it looks any good (thats been announced) but i have a massive backlog of games to keep me interested and just brought far cry 3 new for 25 quid, i shouldn't have really as im halfway through assassins creed 3 but i cant resist a bargain.
younghavok  +   723d ago
I'm really anxious for Monoliths next title. They gave me Baten Kaitos and Xenoblade, as an rpg developer they have proven themselves to be as good as either square soft or enix in the 16-32 bit era or at least on the road to that level of epicness.

I think Nintendo is really going to carve its market out this year with exclusives. I mean the next 3-4 months have quite a few launching. Monster Hunter, Rayman, 101, Bayo 2, Pikmin 3. That (at least to me) is alot of exclusive titles for such a short period.

I'm really looking forward to Wonderful 101 and Lego City. The Aliens game look pretty good as well.
AO1JMM  +   723d ago
I'm looking forward to so many game on the Wii U. I already got BLOPS II, NSMBU, ZombiU, Switch Force HD, Neo Nano Assualt and Nintendoland.

off topic: Where is the WiiU hate post by -MIKA-? LOL
Satanas  +   723d ago
I will cry tears of unadulterated joy if Retro does a 3D Donkey Kong platformer
BanBrother  +   722d ago
Donkey Kong on the Wii was impressive. Love to see a HD version. I'm most keen on a killer Metroid and Zelda, plus some JRPG's.
Tzuno  +   722d ago
I hope they will dominate their own next gen with good games.
lizard81288  +   722d ago
Nintendo: A bunch of great games coming out for the Wiiu!
Gamers: When?
Nintendo:TBA

As much as I like Nintendo, they are very secretive of what games are coming out for their consoles, so it seems like nothing for ages, and then they announce a bunch of games all at once. Then you don't hear anything about them, until a week before they are released.
RGB  +   722d ago
A none gimmick Zelda HD would make me look closely at Wii U or maybe even thoughts of Majora's Mask HD remake!

To Nintendo fans who think the Wii U will get an exclusive GTA... you guys are the most deluded gamers ever!
No major GTA has ever been fully exclusive to any platform (not even PlayStation which features them all) and Rockstar has never released a *real* GTA on Nintendo ever because it's completely the wrong platform to release that type of game on period.
Not happening, it's never happened for a reason!
metroidfusion2  +   722d ago
It might be coming but if it doesn't ok its definitely not going to be the end of nintendo etc etc so keep crying yo tears are delicious and nintendos 1st party titles will more then make up for it and the exclusive 3rd party games and the new ips and the ports of games it will be getting
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   722d ago
I am pretty sure that they will show off Zelda and Retro's new project next.

Zelda will be the one of the only games that will be able to steal or compete with the spotlight of the new Hardware reveals Nintendo will be up against.

Also, a glimpse at a HD Zelda will be enough to make the hesitant jump-on the WiiU. How many times have you seen people write, "I am waiting for Zelda."
7uff1  +   722d ago
Imagine Super Mario Galaxy: Trilogy, with SMG 1, 2, and a new one, all in 1080p, or a new Metroid, maybe even a new DK or Kirby(Air Ride 2? Please!). It'd be awesome!
