Why dont they bring Pokemon to the wii u?

Alex_Boro1590d ago

Nintendo obviously wants no one to get the wii u

Metallox1590d ago

EA, Activision and Square Enix definitely should have released one for home consoles decades ago.

You mean an official Pokemon game?
Because they want to keep their handhelds selling strongly, and the install base for 3DS is decidedly larger than for Wii U, so that's where the sales are.

But fear not!

GBA and DS Pokemon games are going to be a possibility, if not a reality, on the Wii U in short order.
Let those increase the number of Pokemon fans on the Wii U, and there's a decent chance they might do an official Pokemon game for the Wii U in the future...

I'm going to buy a Wii U when Mario Kart 8 comes out.

R00bot1590d ago

I already bought a Wii U for Mario Kart 8. And Smash Bros.. And X. And Zelda.

Damn, how could I forget Metroid? Hopefully we get one sooner rather than later, though. Don't wanna wait for that next-gen Metroid.

Positive Nintendo news Finally. I'm sure IGN and other sites will completely forget about this news.

"Positive Nintendo news Finally."

LOL, software sales on WiiU were abysmal in Jan 2013, the Jan 2014 sales are nothing to brag about.

crusf1590d ago

Better than nothing Parapraxis,Better then nothing. Stop looking at the negetive side of everything.

R00bot1590d ago

But it's still an improvement, meaning it's positive news.
Don't try to spin it.

Nintendo quietly sold about 13 million retail units of their own titles for the wii u. That's not counting the eshop of which we have no idea, but we can safely guess at least 15-20% more. That would be pretty good overall. The upcoming titles will easily double that number. Third parties are obviously underperforming, and need to adjust if they want a piece of cake. The cake is definitely there. I hope the indies can get some.

Metallox1590d ago

I thought the Wii U would perform even worse than last year, but well, that's better than nothing.
