The Top Four Wii U Exclusives Still Set to Release in 2014

Nintendo’s Wii U has not had the greatest start since its initial release in late 2012. With an unfortunate lack of games, sales for the console have never been anything to write home about. Luckily, 2014 has been the start of the Wii U’s upswing, with more titles seeing a release on the system. The rest of the year has a lot to look forward to for Wii U owners and the games below represent the best console exclusives still to come in 2014. (Bayonetta 2, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, Devil's Third, Hyrule Warriors, Wii U)

Maybe 2014 will finally be Nintendo's year. At least Mario Kart 8 helped to move some consoles.

Id say smash bros is really going to be my personally favorite wii u game of the year. Melee was incredible, brawl was even better. Hopefully it isnt delayed to 2015. when that happened to brawl i was so mad.

But Brawl getting delayed arguably resulted in a better game. Nintendo is known for this: they just don't hurry the development process to meet a street date. If they feel that the game can be improved, or it just isn't ready yet, they WILL delay it.

And the amount of polish and technical expertise present in pretty much every Nintendo game isn't any coincidence. Nintendo respects their developers and give them the resources they need to make their games properly. Time is a very important factor for that. Other companies could learn a thing or two from them in that regard.

I'm convinced they delayed Smash 3DS for balancing reasons. They said they were playtesting the game and at the Invitational tournament they said they were still balancing characters. When they finish the 3DS game, they'll probably apply all of those nerfs, buffs and other fixes into the Wii U version. Personally I hope they don't delay the latter as they need that holiday release to push a lot of Wii Us.

Starting to seriously contemplate getting a wii U with some of the games schedules to come out over the next year or so.

Nintendo made a smart move with the free game offer with mario kart 8. The next wave of games due out is going to make things even better.

When I first saw Devils Third I really did want it, I'm not so sure anymore. I hope its change in hands was for the better.

Devils Third isn't this year is it?
coltlokk  +   55d ago
Yeah the release date is "To be announced" so it may or may not be this year.
weekev15  +   54d ago
I didnt think so and smash is a bigger release than it anyway.

Edit. Unless they arent counting smash because its on 3ds as well?

Yeah, they're likely assuming that Smash U will be delayed till spring of 2015 or something.
I'm hoping they're wrong if that's the case.

I just bought a Wii U this monday and all I can say it's awesome!!! Been playing Mario Kart and the game is a blast. Having so much laughs with my friend. Also, the game comes with a code for downloading one of these games: Wind Waker HD, Mario U, Pinkmin 3 or Wii party U.
