3 Nintendo Wii U Games To Look Forward To This Year

After a week of worthwhile announcements for both games and consoles alike, we finally get to sit back and let it all soak in. Suffice it to say, this E3 has more than made up for last year’s lackluster event. With each of the big companies showing what they have to offer, Nintendo was mysteriously absent from the event. This is due to Nintendo deciding to take a different approach by presenting all of their games and announcements through a Nintendo Direct, a choice which has led to a large amount of contention among Nintendo’s fan-base. (Art Academy, Game & Wario, New Super Luigi U, Pikmin 3, Wii U)

This list is missing a few games if we're talking until the end of this year.

The Wonderful 101
Sonic Lost World
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
Super Mario 3D World
Wind Waker HD

Yeah, I was trying to cover games not announced at the E3 direct, minus Art Academy, due to people thinking they will have to wait till november/december for games to be released. I was also trying to avoid 3rd party such as W101 and Sonic.

But yeah, there are some good games coming to the system, and I worry fans are forgetting about them.

Wonderful 101 is first party though. Nintendo owns the IP, Platinum is just developing. And you're right, I hope people don't forget about games like The Wonderful 101, it looks like a blast!

Wonderful 101 isn't third party, Platijum owns the IP. Nintendo is just publishing it, just like they are publishing Bayo 2, and just like they published Lego City. That doesn't really mean they own any of these IPs.

Definitely looking forward to Sonic Lost World and Wonderful 101

Here's a challenge; name 3 good exclusive non-port, third-party titles that cater to core gamers that will be out this year.

Pro tip; you can't.

here is one for you:

Name 3 good exclusive non port third party titles to cater to the core gamers, on any platform, that will come out this year.
All three have to be on the same platform.

Pro tip, you cant.

On topic.
Nintendo always draws me back, Mario Kart 8 looked so awesome, i just have to play it.
And a new Zelda and Metroid are just a matter of time.

Yeah, I figured it couldn't be done. Here's the list you requested, it's so easy:

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection (PS3)
Tales of Xillia (PS3)
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix (PS3)
Beyond: Two Souls (PS3)
Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness (PS3)
Gran Turismo 6 (PS3)

There, just thought I'd double the number for the hell of it, since some are port-ish. GT6, BTS and ToX are original releases, though. I'd have listed Vita, XB1, PS4, or practically anything but Wii U easily as well but PS3 is whatcha get.

&b4 excuses, copouts

Since PS3 is "watcha get"...

MGS Legacy is a re-release of games (majority are HD ports). Only one of them is 3rd party exclusive to the PS3..
KH HD is an HD port.
Beyond isn't a 3rd party game.
GT6 isn't a 3rd party game either.

No excuses. Just facts. If you can't handle them, then I suggest you stay quiet and admit your colossal failure.

Then again, you failed the second you mentioned that Beyond and GT6 are 3rd party exclusives.

@Hadoukameha lol what do you class as a core game? let me guess a core game has to have big guns and you need to be killing people.

Come on do better than that. Nintendo have been core and family since day one. For me the WiiU has the best lineup of games come the end of this year. followed by the xbox one and then the PS4.
Hadoukameha  +   670d ago
@SonyNGP: Nice try, but Quantic Dream is not owned by Sony, and even released games for Dreamcast. But you got me on GT6, so we'll call it even on the corrections, smart guy. But I still win with BTS, Tox, and Disgaea.

@mcstorm: Core games include franchises like Metal Gear, Street Fighter, anything not developed for casual gamers like Angry Birds or Raving Rabbids.

Nintendo does have core games, though few they are, but none meeting my specified challenge criteria.
SonyNGP  +   670d ago
Neither were Bungie or Epic when it comes to Halo and Gears, but they definitely weren't 3rd party, smart guy.
Hadoukameha  +   670d ago
Actually, not-so-smart guy, Microsoft owned Bungie, thus Halo as well. First party. Quantic Dreams could technically go release a game on a different system, unlike Bungie during Microsoft's acquisition. Accept defeat.
