5 System Sellers the Wii U Needs

Dustin Spencer writes:

"The Wii U has been out for over a month now, and I have had the opportunity to put a good number of the releases through their paces (you can check out our reviews for Wii U titles here). Super Mario Bros. U, Zombi U, and Nintendo Land are all excellent starts for the system, but if Nintendo wants to continue to have momentum behind their new console, they need to start announcing something big – as the release line-up for the next few months is quite limited. I’m not just talking about Call of Duty “big” either, I am talking about games that would send fans into a ruckus, lighting up discussions and hype as a release date would draw closer." (Wii U)

Super Mario RPG 2 and Resident Evil 0. Interesting.
masterabbott  +   595d ago
both i have to agree with, would be awesome to see RE.0 on the Wii U
TongkatAli  +   595d ago
Resident Evil 0 with online co-op would be super F amazing.
DarkBlood  +   595d ago
if its going to be the same game then ehhhh i dont know about that but being a resident evil fan i'll just get it anyways lol

You could not be more right.

I would love for Nintendo to create one another Super Mario RPG, not the Paper Mario ones but with an actual story like the classic. Unfortunately I'm not sure they'd ever do that again... they don't even make RPGs themselves anymore unless you count Fire Emblem and that is a SRPG more than anything else.

I prefer Paper Mario sorry

F-ZERO ON WII U DO WANT!!!

Dragon Age? A system seller?
discordman  +   595d ago
Read on a bit. Dragon Age has the potential to be a system seller, but it also can invigorate developers to publishers RPGs of the like if successful on the Wii U. I also think it is the least likely to take a beating by fans for getting exclusivity.

@discordman you think EA would take a game exclusive to only on platform

@KarmicDemon Think Ms/Rare own that still
discordman  +   595d ago
@KMCROC You got a point
ShugaCane  +   595d ago
Conker's Bad Fur Day 2 ! I have no idea whether the licence is still Rare's property or not, though, but I would but that a thousand times.

You won`t see the same team making that game even if hell froze over again. I`m sorry. Look what they did with Conker on the box...
discordman  +   595d ago
sadly, that Rare is dead, relying on old hits and kinect sports to keep their name out there.
LinkageAX  +   595d ago
I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THIS LIST.
sitharrefus  +   595d ago
Dragon Age would be awesome, co-op online, Resident evil 0 only if its co-op online.... They need to bring back Rebecca and Claire. F-zero must be on Wii u, i want them to make a sequel of Geist, Baten Katios, Turok would work nice with the gamepad, Rainbow six Patriots as well.

1080p, 60 frames, side scrolling, 40 hour metroid game with trine 2 level graphics and i will freaking buy a wii u the day the game launches

same with a castlevania game with the above specs

other than that i can wait a long, long time, no console will come close to what my pc is giving me today, ps4 and nextbox as well, until the amazing games are there that i MUST have, there is no rush, launch games are almost always mediocre at best

I like the idea of a highly detailed 2.5D metroid :) Also I think Dragon Age would work great on Wii U and obviously Star Fox and F Zero would be AMAZING!
Perjoss  +   595d ago
Dragon Age?? anyway I think what the writer of the article really meant was StarFox.
masterabbott  +   595d ago
lol i have to agree with you on that one, probably did and got all confused.
Darth Stewie  +   595d ago
Pokemon Snap 2 come on I been waiting for that game for a long time. I played that game so much on N64.
masterabbott  +   595d ago
Pokemon snap ... omg ... please no!
discordman  +   595d ago
Yes! Pokemon Snap would be brilliant with the Gamepad!
koga88  +   595d ago
Honestly, while I'm very happy that they announced Pokemon X and Y yesterday, I was thinking that the announcement was to reveal Pokemon Snap 2. Imagine what they could do with the GamePad... it'd be amazing.
ZacE  +   595d ago
Yes! Snap 2 on the Wii U would be killer. Haha. I like the Pokemon Stadium and Res Evil 0 suggestions.
prettyboy12  +   595d ago
hahaha...just no!!!
RTheRebel  +   595d ago
another bayonetta 2 announcement for e3? =)
coaidant  +   595d ago
SUPER SMASH BRO WII U will get people buying
militissanctus  +   595d ago
Wii U definitely needs some strong software to support it
sway_z  +   595d ago
Except...Games don't sell systems on their own any more. Services and Support are just as important in today's market.

There isn't a single game Nintendo's own studios can make to make me purchase a Wii U, I'm not that fickle any more.

Not to imply the Wii U is not a good product. It's just I can't help thinking it was already outdated before it left the manufacturing plant.

Of course I shall eat my own words if MS or Sony's next consoles are only marginally (entirely possible) better.

A company that has the full circle of Games, Services and technology advancements is where I'm at now.

....Roll on PS4/720!
deafdani  +   595d ago
While all the games listed are good, I think the only one that classifies as a "System seller" is Pokémon. And even that one is a bit debatable, because it's a Pokémon Stadium game, not a proper Pokémon RPG game like the handheld ones.

So... good list on the article, but incorrect when judged under the premise of "killer apps".

Games that would be true killer apps for Wii U (as in, games that move system sales)?

Wii Fit U, Wii Sports U, Mario Kart U, Smash Bros U, Pokémon U, Zelda U.
metroidfusion2  +   595d ago
Well the wii u already has sold more then 2.4 million insales with only one triple a title and that's mario bros u now in the next upcoming months nintendo has good games coming and I think pikmin 3 is after the launch window abd that will boost up sales by the millions now what's after that no one knows but I have noticed nintendo is giving 3rd party a chance tto sell by spacing out their 1st party games which I'm sure they will continue to do which is good for many reasons but probably also a few bad reasons but if nintendo keep doing whatt they doing they will almost reach their goal of 5.5million by march or meet that exactly or far surpass but if they don't do it by march then lateer this year and I would guess 8 to 10million sold by thee end of this year maybe more we will have to wait and see and of course when nintendos 1st party titles come out they will sell millions
Qrphe  +   592d ago
No StarFox? I mean it may not be a system sellers for the masses (neither is F-Zero) but damn we need another one of these.
