Ugh. I really hope it comes out sooner. What else could be coming out between December and April? Certainly nothing I know of.
mrbojingles  +   762d ago
Well they already said "spring 2014" and spring doesn't start every year until March 21st, so,... April is better than June

Super Mario 3D World

I said between December and April. As in what comes out during January, February and March?
Dj7FairyTail  +   762d ago
Do anything big even come out January from Nintendo. Nope.

My guess would be whatever the third Sonic game is will release between January-March.
Prime_28  +   762d ago
Bayo 2 is rumored to be coming in March.

Where did you see that? Not skeptical, just want to see for myself.
_QQ_  +   762d ago
I wish i really hope so, i would guess Q3 2014

That's where third-parties need to step in. Nintendo can't release games every single month.
PopRocks359  +   762d ago
I'm really quite shocked that I received so many disagrees for saying Nintendo should bring out a Mario Kart game sooner. And for questioning if there's anything to hold us over between that and 3D World.

This is such a weird community sometimes.

fattyuk  +   762d ago

Good one ;)

Um, well here's the line up for 2013:

8/2013: Pikmin 3, Splinter Cell
9/2013: Rayman Legends, Wonderful 101
10/2013: Batman Arkham Origins, Assassin's Creed IV, Wind Waker HD
11/2013: Donkey Kong Country, Call of Duty, Watch Dogs
12/2013: Wii Fit U, Super Mario 3D World

2013 games don't stop playing in Wii Us across the globe once the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, 2013

As for January through April, I don't know but Bayonetta 2 looks almost done and has been playable at public shows, not to mention that Yarn Yoshi looks nearly done too.

Wii U in 2014 has: Yarn Yoshi, Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, SMT x Fire Emblem, and others. So I'm guessing Yoshi and Bayo 2 make it out in Jan/March repsectively but we don't know yet. Of course we don't know what's coming January, February, March. That's 7-9 months away.

I don't want to be rude , but you realise that
splinter cell , rayman , batman , creed, call of duty , watchdogs are also available on the other consoles, right ?

Increasing your list with multiplats seems like a last resort , done only to hide the fact that most of the big releases ( mario kart , smash bros , bayonneta and so on ) are in 2014.

Sonic Lost Worlds in October

Why don't multiplats get counted on Wii U? Sony and MS rely on Muiltiplats all day. Why can't Wii U owners look forward to them?

So the PS4 and Xbone are expected to release this November, and Nintendo is missing a huge game during the holidays...

You know what? Never mind. Mario Kart Wii also cane out in April, in 2008. However, people are saying, and even Nintendo is acknowledging, that the Wii U has not sold well. Mario Kart sells, and in the holidays it could sell even more.

Mario Kart was never meant for the holidays. But they did say that they have unannounced games between now and 2014 so expect the unexpected.
Dj7FairyTail  +   762d ago
aside from Mario Kart 7 but it was finished before Holiday with the help of Retro Studios.
Dj7FairyTail  +   762d ago
Pikmin 3 in August
The Wonderful 101 in September
Zelda Wind Waker HD and Sonic Lost World in October
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze in November
Super Mario 3D World in December

Mario and Sonic at the Sochi Games
Wii Fit U and Party U

I would just like to point out that pop rocks asked if anything came out between dec and April he did not ask what Nintendo games are being released between then. I really don't understand why people insist on making digs towards nintend when people say 3rd party games ( even if multi platform) may be released during that time frame. Not everyone each console. Not to mentionit is an article about Mario kart a Nintendo made and exclusive game so again I don't understand some people's comments. It almost seems like people have to make sure they grow their epeen on a daily basis by trying to insult another console.

Another way to look at it is this way. Why even ask the question about games when either

A) you only own a Nintendo system, therefore, any third party game released can be viewed as an exclusive since you only have a Nintendo system....


B) you own a Nintendo system plus either a Microsoft or Sony (or both) console, therefore, you will buy Nintendo made games and if/when third party games release you buy them for a different console it's still a game to play.

It still amazes me how much joy it brings people when taking digs at other consoles in particular Nintendo systems. Is it because people are mad that 3ds a shittty HH (spec wise) is stomping on vita's face, pushing it harder into the mud each time it grasps for air? Or maybe because the wii sold 100million consoles this gen beating both Sony and Microsoft?

If you don't like Nintendo that's fine but Jesus people lets be realistic Nintendo can't release a major game every month for both 3ds and wii u. It's just not going to happen.

Lastly I would like to point out wii fit U is not a game and anyone thinking other wise is an idiot. Also what big N needs to make instead is a wii sports 2 adding more depth to the current games it alreadys has as well as even more sports and adding in the resort title. What happened to that golf and baseball sport demo they showed back in 2012? The one where you in golf the gamepad is used as the tee and in baseball the pad is used as your glove? They need to add that crap and I bet it would sell like hot cakes.
