2014: Wii U’s Year to Shine

The Wii U is currently on a path of recover, which is mostly in-part due to the September 20th price drop that happened earlier this Fall. Nintendo has miraculously managed to actually get the system moving in Europe and even Japan, which prior to this season was an extremely difficult task for the company.

But it’s going to take more than one successful holiday season to consider the system officially in the clear. As we saw with the first 45 days of the Wii U’s life, the system sold extremely well. But once 2013 rolled around, it sunk faster than Rosie O’Donnel in a swimming pool. So no system is ever automatically set to succeed all because it has isolated moments of glory.

I doubt we'll see 3 of this titles next year X, SMT x FE and Zelda U.

Concertoine1048d ago

unfortunately me neither, not sure why people disagree.
X will take a while to localize and we havent seen any of SMT x FE since it was announced almost a year ago. zelda U will definitely be a 2015 release since we probably won't see any of it until e3 2014

EcoSos31048d ago

I dont worry about the disagrees, but yes Im not getting my hopes up for those games coming out next year even more when Nintendo said that they are only showing Zelda at E3 nothing else. SMT X FE we havent even seen nothing on it, now X that one might be early 2015.

Metallox1048d ago

Satoru Iwata said that X will be released for Wii U in 2014, even in the Western Nintendo E3 Direct, but, who knows. As for SMT x Fire Emblem and Zelda U, yeah, I'm completely sure they'll arrive in 2015.

I don't know what you mean by "take a while to localize" in regards to X.
It's not likely to be the same situation as Xenoblade; Nintendo has been actively including this in state-side Nintendo Directs before this point, unlike Xenoblade. It's more likely that they'll be making a state-side version of X a priority this time around.

@wonderful
still, this is a dense jrpg we're talking about. tons to translate and tons of voice acting. could come out the same year in america, we'll see.

X was confirmed for 2014.

deafdani1047d ago

I think X has a possibility of being released next year, seeing how Nintendo confirmed it for 2014.

SMT x FE, very unlikely.

Zelda U, I agree with you. Definitely not happening next year.

I really want Wii U to succeed, its a very good console, cool gamepad and games (indies and not), I really hope that it will pick up this holliday season with Mario 3D world or if not with smash bros and mario kart, all of these are killer apps, same I wish to next gen consoles and handhelds

RPG_Lover1048d ago

3ds had a killer year 2 and wii u will be the same

thomasmiller1048d ago

Yes, the wii u is going to pick up with super mario 3d, and here is another video, the cat suit can turn into a gold statue, and you can take a clone away from another player!! this game just does not stop, with the amount of stuff you can do! Game of the year in my eyes!! cannot wait to get it!!, watch the video for your self!! http://www.youtube.com/watc...

With the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One happening, I don't see the Wii U being successful this year.

RPG_Lover1048d ago

Wii u is successful where it counts, A quality experience
