Nintendo has 14 games coming out for the Wii U in 2015.
Nintendo is picking up some momentum
And haters say WII U has no games. I laugh in the face of this idiots. lol
yea, after 2 years finally some games ;)
Nintendo always has exclusives. The one thing they don't have is multiplats. No far cry 4, witcher, batman, shadows of mordor, unity, evolve, call of duty advanced, gta, etc. Games that a lot are looking forward to.
some heavy hitters right there! Nintendo is the king!
@rdgneoz3: You're right. That's probably why us adults are able to own a Wii U on top of another console or two of their choice and gaming a decent PC-- you know, so we don't miss out on any games we'd like to play. I know it's hard to give that up in place of all this puerile whining going on in the comments, but think about it-- it really is that simple.
Straight from the article: "We see a lot of Mario in there, unfortunately. Personally, I believe that to be one of the reasons Nintendo’s console isn’t doing too well. The Japanese company focuses far too much on their original titles, like Mario and Zelda. Yearly releases bring fatigue within the gaming world, and no franchise has seen as many releases as the plumber has." Given the fact that we're still in 2014 and most of those games in that list don't have an actual release date I'd say the wait is really killing the momentum especially with no 3rd party titles to fill in the void. Out those 14 only half of them are worthwhile. Art academy? Mario vs DK? ;)
@LOL_WUT Some people enjoy Art Academy. I happen to know several people who spend a ton of time making beautiful drawings and character art in Art Academy.
HD Remake of DK 64??
That would be glorious. I miss the open world platformers of the N64 era. Donkey Kong, Banjo Kazooie, Mario 64...
yes I agree. It is becoming a lost art which is why i respect Sony for trying to bring it back with knack. But no one does it quite like Nintendo.
Eww. If you remake a game pick something better than DK64.
Nintendo is definitely returning to the legacy franchises. Lots of Kirby, Marios, Zeldas, and Yoshis. There are at least 6 games in the list that have my interest. Zelda being at the top of course.
It is fair to say some of those games won t be released in 2015 due to not being complete Also- didn t Myamoto say project Guard and Giant Robot might be incorporated I to Star fox? I guess I am saying that the list is very ten native - I would not take it to the bank- they are going to be insinuating the imminent release of as many games as they can in order to cover the huge 3rd party gaps and keep people excited about the Wii u. But I would wait and SE which games actually arrive and when
it wasnt that they were going to be incorporated into Star Fox, but that they were not full fledged games, the ideas might be included in another game altogether, which makes sense, they were relatively simple concepts, not something that would hold and entire game. Then again, there are probably more unannounced games incoming
starfox 2015..nice try only xeno and zelda for me
If those are the only two games you're buying for Wii U next year, I would seriously question your judgment
Good lineup for 2015. Can't wait!
While 14 games is a very impressive number for 1 company, they seriously need to rekindle their bonds with 3rd parties. That's my only gripe with Nintendo.
I think it's still too early to say this...but I'm slowly starting to feel like Nintendo doesn't really need 3rd parties as much as we think they do.
I know they can hold there own, but there are still other games on other consoles that people want. You shouldn't have to buy a PS4 or Xbox one if you want to play Assassins Creed, NBA2k14, or Call of Duty. These are multiplatform games that should be on every platform. There even on PC and soon will even be on mobile. So Nintendo being one of the major console makers there's no excuse for them not to have it.
It's not about if Nintendo needs 3rd party support, it's about the consumer. Nintendo fans have to buy two consoles at minimum in order to enjoy Nintendo exclusives as well as multiplats(PC, PS4, or Xbox One). Usually you just need one console to enjoy multiplats, but not so much for the Nintendo Wii U users.
You mean beg and pay money to be treated equally like other platforms no thanks if i was that interested in multiplatform titles i would buy them for pc or for my ps4 when ff15 comes out i'm not going to whine that i want them on wii u one thing people keep forgetting when they say nintendo has to do something about turd party support is that they tried they really tried but the same companies that promised support dropped it right before launch EA was dispicable offering no dlc or patch support releasing titles that were over a half year old for full price while releasing a complete trilogy with all dlc included on all the other systems for the same price Ubisoft delayed one of the most anticipated launch titles for more than 7 months Sega cancelled Alien colonial March or something Rockstar kept talking about possibilities but never brought gta5 i could go on about this but the thing is after all that's happened Nintendo can't force them to make games even with a gun hold to their heads they already showed that they screwed Nintendo when they had the best intentions for turd party to shine the first year but after that backstab combo from the likes of EA Ubi Wb and the like they left Nintendo with the damage they had done and told us they will reconsider making games when the installbase gets better now Nintendo has to clean up the mess and even when they are selling better than x1 they are still pulling support using one cheap excuse after another Ubisoft for example told us last week we won't be getting mature titles they tell us we want just dance what is quite funny cause Nintendo released a demographic of Wii u Eshop users and that demographic showed that most gamers were around the 20 till 45 years old or something does Ubisoft really think we want just dance or is the truth that we wanna be treated like all the others and that we are too old to think you can cheat us out of or money for your half assed products A bit of a long rant but i think i'm pretty clear on my stance about turd party support if they wanna treat us as second class citizens good riddance with them
But that's exactly what I'm saying. You shouldn't have to buy another console to get your Nintendo fix. Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo. I just miss the good old Super Nintendo and N64 days when if you owned a Nintendo console you had the best of both worlds. Now it just feels like they're completely branched off and a separate entity from the rest of the gaming community. On one hand I see where they're coming from, but on the other it feels like there is more they can do to get more games on their console.
The Legend of Zelda, Splatoon, Yoshi's Woolly World, Devil's Third and most importantly Xenoblade Chronicles X (!) are on my must-buy list for 2015. This year Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta2(+1) and then Smash. Glorious times ahead of us. (Super stoked that Shulk is in SSB btw!)
I agree 100% and whole heartedly with everything you just typed. I am completely stoked for these games coming out. I am also very excited to play Splatoon and Captain Toad. They are different from the norm and I like that. Good Job Nintendo.
Do you guys think Wii U can hold on to the number 2 spot next year? I hope they can!
Xeno = my game of this generation!
3/14 are mario games, and those are spinoffs or cash grabs. (2015) is these 14 games predicted date, barring no delays. PS4, has that many coming out by the end of october 2014.
These are games by nintendo, not games in total coming to the Wii U. Sony couldn't even push out 10 games on one system in a year.
good point. ill have to look at that later. my bad.
damn Nintendo honestly has a great catalog of games
When is "Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem" coming-out?
At E3 IT said it's still on schedule so not cancelled. IT can sometimes take a long time. It will come.
Fatal Frame V has been teased to come west so we may have 15. If that happens then Wii U owners can have a list horror game as well.
I will only buy 4 of those titles at most which is around my yearly budget for brand new games.
SuperMario 20...34 J/K :)
