Sound on Sight: "So what does Nintendo have in store for the Wii U in 2015? Here are my most anticipated games exclusive to Wii U and set for release in 2015."
Good list! For me though I would switch 2 with 4. Their are SO MANY exclusives coming to 3DS/Wii U this year. So excited!!!
How many actually?
Great list. Zelda WiiU is certainly my most anticipated game. Not sure about Star Fox in 2015 though - showing the game at E3 2015 to a few journalists makes me think it's more likely to be a 2016 launch. I would also add the Mario Kart 8 2nd DLC pack to that list. I cannot wait for more Mario Kart! :)
myamoto said starfox will come out before zelda
Zelda will undoubtledly be awesome. Pretty psyched to see more of Star Fox, too. Mario Maker, however. "Just imagine creating your own Super Mario game and sharing it with your friends to play." Yeah, and imagine if people had being doing that for years already in LBP!
"Yeah, and imagine if people had been doing that for years already in LBP!" And it's still just as boring as it ever was. That game might be an ok platformer by Sony standards, but it's basically shovelware compared to Nintendo platformers. Sony makes excellent games in certain genres- like Last of Us, Infamous, Uncharted, etc. Top notch stuff. Muah. But they absolutely suck at making platformers. Thing is (and this is no jab at Sony) LBP has nice features, but the actual game itself is dull as a rock. Ya, you can share levels, that's great- a lot of mediocre games let you share content. That's not really saying much. But an epic, amazing, always-fun game that let's you share levels? Now THAT'S exciting. *no offense to anyone who enjoys LBP...
First of all, Sony sucks at making platformers? Well, a history of Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper (to which, inFamous is very similar), Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Ape Escape or LittleBigPlanet for that matter -- all of which are top rated platforming franchises -- would disagree. Have you ever played LittleBigPlanet? I almost think it's safe to assume that the answer is no. You can literally play replicas of Super Mario Bros, there. So calling it dull is kind of like shooting yourself in the foot. Not just levels that are similar. You can get the same jumping physics, power ups, sounds. And as for LBP3, which had incredibly creative story levels, how is that not fun? I know plenty of people who have never created a level in LBP and still think it's a fun game. To each his own, I guess. Even though I can't see how someone would like Super Mario Bros and not LBP, unless there's lots of nostalgia involved. I personally think Nintendo 2D platformers have been left dead in the water by LBP and Steam platformers like Mark of the Ninja and Super Meat Boy. Super Mario Bros has largely gone unchanged since Gamecube. They're all fun, but they're missing the little extra that modern 2D platformers do have.
Great games are coming for Wii U, can't wait for: Zelda, Star Fox and Xenoblade!
None of those games seem exciting at all, really. Sad stuff.
Cheer up schiller :)
