Iwata: More unannounced Wii U games due at year’s end

NE: "Earlier today, Nintendo posted a transcript of the company’s financial results Q&A from its investor’s meeting. It isn’t available in English just yet, but a few sections have been unofficially translated online." (Wii U)

So we have to wait till the end of the year to find out
Root  +   544d ago
They could show them off at E3 although they might be over shadowed by the Nextbox and the PS4
tehpees3  +   544d ago
Why are people comparing Nintendo with 720 and PS4?

Microsoft and Sony are the ones in direct competition. Not Nintendo. If you will buy Wii U you will buy it eventually. if you won't you won't.

Also he probably means Mario.

I wouldn't necessarily say over shadow. The WiiU is already out and E3 is right around the corner. Gaming internet noob.

"If you will buy Wii U you will buy it eventually. if you won't you won't."

thanks for your invaluable insight there :)

I think a new HD Zelda, HD 3D Mario, Smash Bro's and Mario Kart isn't getting over shadowed by much of anything. It just means that E3 will be chock full of awesome instead of boring like the past couple of E3's.
Jadedz  +   544d ago
With the PS4/720 on the horizon...
Nintendo has to be prepared for anything.
SonyNGP  +   544d ago
More like between now and E3.

"We also have games that are slated for end of the year that we haven’t mentioned yet."
Knight_Crawler  +   544d ago
I feel a major Wii U price drop coming this E3.
mcstorm  +   544d ago
I think the price drop will depend on the ps4/xbox 3 price as £300 for the pro is not that bad of a price on the Wiiu. I do feel they will bring out a Mario kart or Zelda game around the time of the other 2 consoles as it will help people pick the Wiiu over the other 2.

I do think this year will be a big year for Nintendo though as the games we know about for the Wiiu and 3ds we have some big names in the mix.
3-4-5  +   544d ago
No....Wait until the end of the year for them to release.

We will find out ahead of time.

You should think before you type.

When was the last time a game was announced and released on the same day by Nintendo ?
Stephen5543  +   543d ago
It's not that he didn't think. He just didn't read, which is common on this site. The title is also a little misleading.
3-4-5  +   543d ago
yea I was probably too harsh with that comment.
deafdani  +   543d ago
Last week! They announced and released Balloon Trip for Wii U the same day.

XD
jakmckratos  +   544d ago
If Nintendo didnt consider itself a competitor then why release games like Darksiders,Mass Effect 3 and Batman??
bullymangLer  +   543d ago
1 answer, the gamepad . . its been proven that playing console games on Nintendos new and soon to be copied Game-pad feeLs awesome . (:
WiiUsauce  +   543d ago
they said they'd announce new stuff at GDC. keep up with the news, bro.
Angrymorgan  +   543d ago
They gonna release their big guns at the end of the year to try and take the shine off m$ and sonys new console launches imo
1upgamer99  +   544d ago
Basically there are games coming out this year we have not seen yet. Also they need more talent. That is a good thing. I hope they don't put all of their efforts on the gamepad. I mean yes I REALLY like it, but not every game needs to use it constantly. Some games they could just use it s a HUD or weapons switch.
Jamaicangmr  +   544d ago
"Year's end" YESSS!!!! /s
Way to gather excitement Nintendo.

Well they can show stuff earlier and build some hype. But i'm pretty much with you in finding it difficult to be excited. Hopefully the prove my doubts wrong.
Knushwood Butt  +   543d ago
Don't forget you'll have Wii Fit U to keep you busy until then. /s
DeadPixel  +   544d ago
At the end of the day no one even knows when the 720/ps4 will arrive no date has been confirmed its all just rumours and hope and with gta now being delayed untill sept i'm not so sure about the holiday release window
sway_z  +   544d ago
Hahahahah ...you gotta love Nintendo ...Meh!
strigoi814  +   544d ago
Iwata only mean that there will gonna be more mario games till the year end...
WiiUsauce  +   543d ago
well they've already announced that we will see Mario Kart and the next 3D Mario game at E3, so those games have already been MENTIONED. He said that there will be games that will come out this year that HAVE NOT been mentioned. common sense, dude.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   544d ago
The Wii U will be fine all the Wii U need is that one game
CaptainPunch  +   543d ago
I really hope we see a Kirby and Donkey Kong game on the Wii U.
Venox2008  +   543d ago
just show me two new Metroids, one for 3ds other or Wii U and I am not gonna sleep till they'll releases :D

on topic, actually I believe there should be some decent amount o 3rd party games, cuz ninty direct was mostly about 1st/2nd parties.. at least I hope
WiiUsauce  +   543d ago
yeah, I'm with you on that. They released Metroid Prime and Metroid fusion I think in the same year when those came out. It'd be awesome if we got another major console Metroid and a 2.5D handheld Metroid on 3DS.
Venox2008  +   543d ago
2 new primes would be awesome, especially from retro studio
Sgt_Slaughter  +   543d ago
They are going to have another conference to address 3rd party games, and the 3DS as a whole.
LOL_WUT  +   543d ago
Yes, Mr. Iwata why don't you tell us something we don't already know ;)
wiiulee  +   543d ago
thats great to hear and im sure there are plenty of games coming for wiiu and 3ds to keep the momentum going
Kevlar009  +   543d ago
Still waiting to hear Watch Dogs being made available for the WiiU. Seems like it would work perfectly with the Gamepad

Come on Ubisoft, reaffirm your commitment
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   543d ago
YEP,
You got "Intelligent" Bbl-Up Vote.

Watch Dogs looked brilliant but it had a busy HUD

Putting all of that on the WiiUPad especially the Map-
Would be amazing.

Ubisoft exec:

Looks at sales of Zombie U...

Nah
PopRocks359  +   543d ago
And out from what butt did you pull that? ZombiU has a higher attachment rate than God of War III.

Knushwood Butt  +   543d ago
Considering ZombiU is pretty much the only 3rd party WiiU exclusive out there, sales are pretty dire.
gamingzen  +   543d ago
Im just interested at all the comments on the next xbox and ps4 i have a question to all you people that are going to be so dissapointed what do you think next gen graphics are going to be like.......i know for sure certain developers are going to have to rethink their reliance on cpu needs to change and start getting used to using gpu's
Ck1x  +   543d ago
That's the problem I see with companies like Ubisoft, Square and Epic showing off these amazing previews of what's to come. People start expecting everything will either be at that level or surpassing it in visuals on these next consoles. Which frankly isn't going to happen! When Gears and Uncharted were first shown, they amazed because these were the kind of titles that made people take notice of HD visuals in a mass market way.
Knushwood Butt  +   543d ago
I think they're going to be a hell of a lot better than Mario Bros Wii U...
Thepcz  +   543d ago
stop drip feeding us!
doesnt it go without saying there would be unannounced games due for the end of the year?

if we assumed there wasnt then that would be completely shit and the wiiu would definitely be doomed.

but end of the year is too late. we need games this summer.

its going to be wii and gamecube all over again, where nintendo owners arte drip fed games and are supposed to be cool with that. nintendo are just giving nintendo owners a great reason to buy a ps3/4/360 etc.

they dont know how to truly satisfy their customers.

what use is a games console with a barren release schedule?
thaimasker  +   543d ago
They clearly stated that there will be games mid-year....which is summer

“We are not thinking about a long timeframe. We are thinking about Mid year up to End of the year 2013.
LiquidSword93  +   543d ago
Good. Pump them games out Nintendo. Tear it up.
Drainage  +   543d ago
better not be some bullshit like dance wii u or mario golf . get your shit together nintendo.
deafdani  +   543d ago
Wait... Mario Golf is actually pretty fun.
RFornillos4  +   543d ago
Annoyed Gamer's already dropped a hint of a Nintendo Direct focusing on 3rd party in a couple of weeks... so yeah, more games for Wii U coming then...
