RPGs on Wii U: Nintendo really gets it now

Destructoid: "Today's Wii U Direct was a refreshing change, and a sign of good things to come for the Wii U. It seemed that, from today's presentation, that Nintendo has been listening. Maybe we made just enough noise. Maybe they're refocused. Who knows. But it does seem that they're tuned into the frequency of role-playing Nintendo fans now." (Nintendo, Wii U)

its nice that Nintendo is supporting developers who have a real passion to further the JRPG genre! in my eyes JRPG doesn't come to mind when i hear the name Square Enix, that company has no direction with the JRPG genre, just look at the mess the whole FF13 franchise and the time its taken for FF13 Versus to come out. but Nintendo is getting what it takes to support developers who want to deliver great games in the genre. hopefully Nintendo will continue this trend for years to come.

yes if i had to only get one console next gen it would be the wii u since it looks like the home JRPG'S next gen

Nintendo was already pulling me into RPGs with the 3DS. This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as I'm concerned. I look forward to more announcements.

this is the only graphically appealing exclusive ive seen & theres no telling when its going to release.. i just hope it doesnt get overshadowed by nx gen consoles.. Graphics arent everything but threres only so much of that cartoony stuff i can take.. Fire emblem & Castlevania are coming soon which is AWESOME! just like this but everything else is the same old song & dance from em.. Windwaker looks good but ive been there done that 2 generations ago.. Not paying $60 to play it in HD.. Rayman, Bayo 2, & X are all i want for wii u.. There better be more announcements

Shin megami Tensei X fire emblem , Monolith softs game and monster hunter ultimate all in year 1. Fantastic....

Really intrigued as to what the SMTxFE game turns out to be. Hopefully a touch based Strategy RPG where the graphics come to life in Cutscenes and battle sequences like Fire emblem awakening but with awesomer visuals.

There isn't a release date announced other than Monster Hunter. And assuming that the other two will make it out in North America of all places, before 2014, is a fantastic leap of faith. Not a single piece of footage existed from the Atlus crossover, and the Xenowhatever one was cobbled together from Alpha footage and not even a real trailer.

I really wish people would just calm themselves a bit. Wait and see is a good attitude to have with many things in life.

-ocober 2013- Shin megami Tensei X Fire Emblem

when did nintendo not get it...nintendo is a real gaming company, they dont sell tvs or computers....nintendo always understand gaming...but with the wiiu they have all things clicking

They really look primed to create an "almost" monopoly on JRPGs, just like the PS1 and PS2 did.

ll they have to do is get the games out. I think if you look at it nintendo chas there hands tied. Two pieces of hardware and not enough people to push the envelope. But as I kept preaching Nintendo would have to just get one game out and show the wiiu is a beast.
