Sega say they have fantastic developments for Wii U in the pipeline

Sega have reassured Nintendo fans that they have fantastic developments for Wii U in the pipeline after the company cancelled the release of Aliens Colonial Marines on the console.

Gearbox's shooter was meant to be released for Wii U during the first quarter of 2013 but Sega cancelled the Nintendo version of the game after bringing it out to a mixed reception on other platforms. (Sega, Wii U)

Well it better not be another disappointment, but nevertheless, that is good to hear

Rock n Rock Racing ?

the only people that are worried are the ones that don't have a WiiU. I'm pretty sure that anyone who owns already is speculating good games. Hence the reason we invested so early in it's lifecycle.

Shenmue?

It's never gonna happen.

Why?
Whymii  +   1034d ago
The question still stands, why will it never happen? What is your reasoning?
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   1034d ago
never played shenmue before in my life. but i just dont understand how gaming companies could justify not creating a game that so many people have begged for for well over a decade, while still releasing games NO ONE is asking for.

in my eyes, Whatever shenmue is, it needs to happen because too human, lair and DMC happened.

its not gonna sell, it is that simple. No way would Shenmue sells in today's market, people would find it too boring. even shenmue 2 didn't sell well.

'people would find it too boring'

This, as you don't have perks or killstreaks it would be dismissed as boring.

Having played Shenmue to death on my Dreamcast, I understand the nostalgia for a remake or sequel. Truth be told, it was a great game in its day, but time have moved on and I think people would find it too restrictive. There are so many open world adventure games today that it wouldn't have the impact it had back then. Same for the story telling as well. Look at how well games like Bioshock Infinity, Red Dead Redemption, GTAs, etc are telling stories in open worlds.

It would sell as well or better as any Yakuza game. Not too mention the majority of Nintendo gamers enjoy Japanese or eastern developed games.

Lol, not on Wii U. before anyone considers this trolling, understand why Wii U is the least likely place for Shenmue 3:

- it's a console that is only slightly more powerful than current gen. Suzuki-san pushes the envelope on hardware for its time. Compromises are not commonplace in that man's vision.

- Install base not large enough, and already PS4 and Nextbox have more how surrounding them than Wii U does, and have roughly 4 times the horsepower .

- A tablet controller that whilst would be cool for interactivity such as Ryo's notebook, item management and learning moves, is not applicable to the Shenmue formula.

Of all consoles Suzuki-san would choose, it's certainly not going to be the Wii U, which is basically the release that would cost them in both success and technical and artistic ambition.

Your first point is false. If it were true, then by definition the PS4 and 720 wouldn't be much more then the 360 and PS3.

Fact is the PS4 is ONLY 3x as powerful as a Wii U.
Fact is the 720 is only 2x as powerful as a Wii U.

That isn't a bunch of difference.

Even an uber PC is 8-9x as powerful as a PS4.

But that is only a moderate difference.

Fact it whether you play on Wii U or and uber late 2013 PC, you'll have about 27x difference from top to bottom, but play games that don't look hugely different.

Your 2nd point is hilarious, because this happens to EVERY console. 720 and PS4 will have the same issues. That's why, if you were too young to remember, that you had games coming out on the previous consoles and NOT on PS3/360.

Now more devs will finally jump up when there is a PS4/720/Wii U/PC to code on, thus Wii U will benefit when the devs jump finally jump forward, but there will still be games that are only on the old consoles, and guess what the old consoles will still sell more than the new ones.

That's right, the 360 and PS3 will sell more this xmas and in 2014 then the 720 and PS4 will.

Your third point is not understanding that the 'tablet controller' is really a bigger pro controller in terms of functionality. You have two triggers, two bumpers, four buttons, and two sticks.

...plus if you want a pro controller that looks and feels like a 360 controller, you can buy a Wii U pro controller.

The eshop isnt available in my country (South Africa) crappiest console launch I've ever seen!! At least when PS3 launched it worked out of the box!!!
Joegrine20  +   1033d ago
Simple change your eshop region sir
PygmelionHunter  +   1033d ago
Then credit cards won't work...
Joegrine20  +   1033d ago
He lives in South Africa. it doesn't matter, he isn't seeing anything on the eshop. all he needs to do is change the region and i believe 3DS point cards also works with the wii U eshop. I live in Trinidad and if i put my region as Trinidad, i will see nothing on the eshop. I changed it to US and there it was everything. thats all he needs to do and hes good to go.

How about sonic hd collection with sa 1 & 2, sonic unleashed, and sonic colors, a new panzer dragoon or hd version of orta, a crazy taxi hd collection, and of course something new. :D
knifefight  +   1034d ago
Hopefully it's Sakatsuku.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1034d ago
Jet Set Radio III would be perfect because of low development costs and implementation of the Wii U pad for graffiti creation/execution. Create a deeper skate trick system with harder police A.I (similar to the first Jet Set Radio not JSRFuture) with online play for races, tag battles, Deathball, Trick Battles and Free-Roam skate would drum up some sales.........

It's logical, Sega is a innovative company just like Nintendo.
And they have good relationship with N.
So if they would want to make a new and innovative game, there's no better place than to go with wiiu.
NeoTribe  +   1034d ago
Segas games suck. Now all of a sudden there gonna save wii u? We got a crappy software company making crappy games for a crappy system. Call me crazy but i think the end result will be crap.
_QQ_  +   1033d ago
they never mentioned saving anyone...
Knushwood Butt  +   1034d ago
Conduit 3, developed by Ninja Theory.
PopRocks359  +   1033d ago
How about the dev who created The Conduit and not the dev that will slap their director's face on the main character's head?

Jet Set Radio WiiU. A new game.
DivineAssault  +   1034d ago
Hopefully they dont get cancelled & some are for an older mature crowd.. I dont mind E rated games but i like to have some gruesome games at times too

1 game that did really bad with a lot of negative media and conspiracy theories get cancelled and you bring that up?

That avatar of Skelator serves you right.

There's nothing wrong being a realist, but you seem to bring nothing but pessimism. So many IPs Sega could bring out, they range from E to M.

"gruesome games"
only thing from sega that comes to mine is... House of the dead?
DivineAssault  +   1033d ago
Madworld was M rated for the wii by sega too jr.. Sega isnt that good anymore anyway.. ppl like you are content with anything they do or anything that happens to them.. Its ok though.. Keep accepting their screw ups.. Ill just sit back & watch as more & more games get cancelled..
lovegames718  +   1033d ago
Conduit sold crap on wii lol and every company seems to be a savior for wiiu nowadays lol smh
PygmelionHunter  +   1033d ago
I want either a new Sonic Adventure or a new Panzer Dragoon... Or both, of course!

People keep asking for all these games like Shenmue and Jet Set Radio, those games are much more likely to end up on Playstation or Xbox.

Matter of fact has there ever even been a Jet Set Radio released on Nintendo consoles other than a really crappy Gameboy Advance version?

Has there ever been a Shenmue to release on them? Don't think so.

The reason I bring up Jet Set Radio is that, for all its cult status, very few people actually ever bring it up. Shenmue 3 gets constantly mentioned by people but, as you say, if it ever was released (and I have no personal desire for it, I found the first game to be a quirky of its time experiment) the Playstation would probably serve it best with sales figures.

But whilst a new Jet Set Radio game should ALSO feature on the PS4 (and maybe Xbox although they've never heavily supported it), it could also be released on the WiiU because, whilst it might sound like a simplistic reason, it is a kind of cute series that some Nintendo gamers might give a go out of curiousity.

Sega fans will have split up so much around the different consoles and it may be because their kids, who may not care for non-Sonic Sega series, have a WiiU that they'd try it out on that console.
