Monster Hunter 3, the game to "save" the Wii-U?

Finally an upcoming excuse to actually turn on my Wii-U. Could this be the title which kickstarts the Wii-U? (Monster Hunter 3, Wii U)

WiiU doesn't need saving trust me ?? Get a life.

Is this the article to save Oh, yes it is. Voted down. We don`t want to save you.

Correction: To save >your< Wii U.


But anyway, I'm surely getting it. After putting 1000+ hours in the original, I've been longing for more monsters.

Same here, in fact the main reason I bought the Wii U was because of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

For many, the Wii U has brought the Wii into our homes. I skipped the Wii because of lack of HDMI.

So for many, the Wii U if very far off from dying.

Having a blast playing Smash Bro's, MarioKart, MarioTennis, Zelda Twilight, Mario Galaxy = ) On top of which, Scribblenauts, Nintendoland, NSMB WiiU, ZombieU and Sonic Racing are all solid games = )

and i can talk to gamers from around the world instantly via miiverse = ) what more could you ask for?

only thing i miss is achievements. they should call them wiiwards !

Nintendo never needs saving. Topics like these in general (regarding any console) are not worth the read.

Nintendo never needs saving.
Well, technically the 3Ds was saved by that price cut it got early on. So yea... ;)
PopRocks359  +   1046d ago
You mean a price cut and two Mario games in November that each sold a million by the end of the year.

Also a console needing saving and a company needing saving are two particularly different things. I cite the Virtual Boy; Nintendo wouldn't need saving from a single failing console.

No one game is gonna make or break the wii-u

What Nintendo needs is great 3rd party support in 2013, otherwise it will be a forgotten device by end of 2013 because newer consoles will be in the market

Nintendo consoles have a long history of not getting 3rd party support, the last great Nintendo console to get supported by 3rd party was wait for it NES.

GTA5 needs to be in wii-I, do whatever you have to Nintendo to get it
Borderlands 2 with all ts dlc in mid 2013 in wii-u is a must
Tomb raider

All the big games.

So I think wii-u will fail:NO but do I see it selling 90-1000 million no way. At most I see it getting to 50-60 million which in my eyes is success.

What wii did was once in a lifetime kind of thing, it's like saying ps3 failed because it didn't sell as well as ps2.

You look at EA one of the biggest publishers and most of its games are not coming to wii-u, that has to change

The constant "____ needs saving" nonsense that starts a month after every new "struggling" platform is another reason why this industry can be so obnoxious. Articles like this just feel like click-bait.

Also, MH3U is a stupid title to think will kickstart anything. It's niche at best.

It needs saving? It just came out! 3DS, Vita, Wii U.

Are you guys by any chance Sega fanboys who can't get over the fact Sega flopped? Its not normal to throw around all this doom and gloom at Nintendo and Sony. And when you are as strong as they are you are very VERY unlikely to fail.
ThanatosDMC  +   1046d ago
Vita will have another doom article soon or when a high profile game comes out like Phantasy Star Online 2, which is in beta form in Japan.

Nothing needs saving....

Except Journalism.
Fierce Musashi  +   1046d ago
So true. Just a bunch of hit fishing now-a-days.
strigoi814  +   1046d ago
Not at all
ozzywazzy  +   1046d ago
It needs a lot more than that. It's about to flop something special.
PopRocks359  +   1046d ago
After selling 900,000 units in a month?
MasterCornholio  +   1046d ago
Since when did the Wii U fail?

Im only asking this because the console just came out plus if the Wii U was going to fail Nintendo would give it a massive price drop just like the 3DS to stimulate the sales and turn it into a success.

It wont die.. Gamecube didnt die, N64 didnt die, so this wont either.. The 3rd party support may die but 1st party will continue on it..
Kevlar009  +   1046d ago
Seeing what 360 and PS3 got, I really hope WiiU becomes more than just the only way to play Nintendo games. There is a lot of potential with the WiiU, if only more developers took the risk (after what happened to many Wii 3rd party titles, I'm not surprised at current skepticism). My hope is Nintendo will release a graphically focused AAA title that says WiiU is "Next Gen" power-wise, and more developers will take it seriously

We all know 1st party titles will be amazing, but 3rd party is what is most crucial to obtain. WiiU already has a good standing amongst Indie/Download developers, hopefully some 3rd parties will step up to give another reason to try the WiiU (outside of Nintendo franchises)

doesn't need saving, butI will be picking this up day one

The wii-u is awesome. True quality unit that appeals to all the household. Believe me, arguments exist in my house are based on one thing (the Wii-u) , who chooses the game, who's turn it is next and who put that stupid red block there to make Mario fall down tha hole.

all this time i thougt it was only Vita that was pegged with doom and gloom.... haha must be a slow day at the office for this guy... I have a Vita and love it...I have a WiiU and my kids love it... I sometimes think that they do these articles to make fans read the comments to show how others are loving their console...reverse psycology... Or mabey they are just being negative and cant see the good in anything..(shrugs)
