The Wii U will miss out on the Witcher 3, but Nintendo fans can look Forward to These RPGs Instead

The Witcher 3 will be hitting the PC, PS4, and other "high end consoles (Xbox 720)" next year. Which leaves the Wii U out in the cold. While the Wii U probably isn't getting the Witcher 3, Nintendo fans still have a lot of other big name RPGs to look forward to. Check out Furious Francis' top upcoming RPGs on the Wii U. (Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, PC, Pokemon, PS4, Shin-Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, The Last Story, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Wii U, Xbox One, Xenoblade Chronicles 2)

Yeah especially Xenoblade 2 and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. One thing to note about all these games is there all exclusive to the Wii U. With the exception to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate with is also on 3DS.

phew, almost scared me there seeing the MC from SMT Nocturne.
well, mainly because remake of that game would have autosold me an Wii U

Well the witcher is a mature and a serious RPG , so...
i think most of them will prefer to get an JRPG like Ni no Kuni.

After Witcher 2, my expectations for the third game aren't very high at all.

But... how is the Witcher at all relevant to a discussion of Nintendo RPGs?
Theyellowflash30  +   1002d ago
The Witcher 3 is a big open world RPG that was announced for the PS4 and Xbox 720.

Basically leaving Wii U owners out. But even thought the Wii U isn't getting That RPG is getting a bunch of other big ones.

It is simply because its not announced for the console and people want more fodder to bash. That is pretty much how it works.

They take things that most people who actually like the Wii U or Nintendo consider irrelevant and make articles that superimpose some kind of resentment or negative emotion where there aren't any insisting they are missing out on things that they never cared about to begin with.

Then, anti-Nintendo fanboys flock to the article and subsequently their sites for stating what they wish to see and believe and give them hits which generate money.

They forget most Nintendo supporters aren't "super fanboys" who troll other console and refuse to by anything without their father consoles brand name on it. Most of them have a PC as well.

Mistwalker's art teaser said "The Last World" so that's probably what the sequel will be called.
MrWonderful  +   1002d ago
Seems like the he is reaching deep to get those last 2 titles. While I own a wii u and would love to see a Pokemon game on home console. Mist Walker may start making games on ps4 now that the hardware isn't exotic and crazy ken is gone.
lilbroRx  +   1002d ago
Ken was stillt their in some form the last tiem I checked. There were also more issues with Sony then that.

Sakaguchi will not be releasing a game on Sony hardware anytime soon. He'd go back to Microsoft first.

My mistake i thought they totally got him out of the picture

It is sad witcher 3 will not be making its way to wii u. But honestly i would not be hyped for witcher 3 if i did not beat witcher 2. Also, that xenoblade dev game looks fantastic.
wheresmymonkey  +   1002d ago
nice little list. The last story 2 being made has bugger all to do with XSEED though and everything to do with nintendo, since they own the ip and published it in japan and europe.

Already very tempted to get a wiiU in the near future but as soon as that was announced i'd buy one on the spot.
ThaBlackBaron  +   1002d ago
So it doesn't say there will be no Wii U version.. they just assume there wont be one lol
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1002d ago
"Well Said" @TBB
what I was thinking-

They didn't even say there would be a XB720 Version coming-
Many have just Assumed.

Don't get me wrong with the Nintendo-Bigots everywhere I could see W3 not making it to the WiiU-
But at least I will wait until all of the announcements are made before declaring it fact.

>Nevertheless, it was a good article. Making the gaming public aware of what is to come is very amiable & rare quality now-a-days.

lol poor WiiU, besides Xeno 2 there's not much there.
Theyellowflash30  +   1002d ago
I wouldn't go that far. Intelligent Systems made a damn good Fire Emblem game on the 3DS. If they can make a game just as good on Wii U, that will be something.

The Last Story was fantasic, If there making a second one, that will be pretty good.
LastXeno  +   1001d ago
The Last World (Mistwalker)
Monster Hunter 3U
and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (Atlus and Intelligent)
kamikazepikmin  +   1002d ago
screw you witcher 3 devs, you pieces of shit for not bringing this game to us
swice  +   998d ago
Lol dude, go get some sleep
HexxedAvenger  +   1002d ago
It sucks that Nintendo gets screwed over. Ah well, they'll do what they always do and fend for themselves. I'll continue to support them! I can't wait for Monster Hunter. I hope for info for SMTxFE.
swice  +   998d ago
Here's to hoping that Wii U gets Witcher 4

There's absolutely no reason for the wii u to not get The Witcher 3.It's stupid at best.
CaptainN  +   1001d ago
They forgot Dragon Quest 10 !!!

Bubble up if you agree :)
ISNeko  +   1001d ago
I'm I the only one around here that really wants an open world MMO Pokémon game? A big-ass open MMO world with other trainers and Pokémon just roaming around sounds so damn badass. And then the stadium battles! Players could become gym leaders! There are so many awesome possibilities!
