Rumor: Nintendo Set to Release a Skylanders-Style Game for Wii U

After a 25-year hiatus, Nintendo will be at Toy Fair 2014, which sparks the question: Why are they here now? Various media outlets have speculated that Nintendo might be trying to get in on the interactive toy market utilized by games such as Skylanders and Disney Infinity by releasing their own game with the Nintendo license.

That would be wild.
I wonder what such a game would play like...

So the most likely (if our speculation is true) would be for either:

A) something like Infinite with different worlds and collectible mascots or
B) a Pokemon collectible game similar to Skylanders and along the lines of that rpg everyone's been wanting

:D thoughts?

uh they tried Pokemon didn't work never will

They tried it as a arena fighting game, which was kind of a ridiculous choice to focus funding on...but what about an rpg similar to X/Y with which they only release the three starting pokemon plus a select group of pokemon not available in the world of the game, itself, as figures that can be used on any Wii U owner's game.

This would allow for trading AND duels with anyone who has the pokemon game!

Yeah like wii u owners gonna go across the nation to get one figure.

IMO they will probably just be promoting Pokemon Rumble. If they were making some huge new game like the article talks about it would be announced at e3 or with a Direct not at a toy fair. If they do announce something good though I will be happily wrong and very surprised

Hopefully its not true. Nintendo needs to cater more to hardcore audiences. This would probably sell a lot though and its a smart buissiness move, but I want to see more hardcore games.

That's what games like Zelda, X, Hyrule Warriors, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, and Bayonetta 2 are for.

Right now they need anything that will make the Wii U sell more consoles. Sub Gamecube levels are not cool.
