Rich Drummond of Richie D Rants says:
"We all know the Wii U has struggled. Whether it be in terms of sales, lack of third-party support or the release of the PS4 and Xbox One, to say the Wii U has had it a bit rough would be an understatement. As of very recently though, that is on par to change. Maybe not immediately, but the Wii U has a very bright future ahead of it.
Between titles like Windwaker HD and Super Mario 3D World on the market now and titles like Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. coming to the platform in 2014, the Wii U is starting to show a nice burst of life. This was only added to when during today’s (Dec. 18, 2013) Nintendo Direct the game Hyrule Warriors was announced."
