Nine Third Party Wii U Games Listed For North American Release In 2015

Game Informer:
Following yesterday’s financial report, Nintendo has provided supplemental information about its upcoming releases. Among the data are lists of upcoming first- and third-party games for its home and handheld consoles.

There are no significant changes to the first-party lineup. Star Fox, The Legend of Zelda, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and Mario Maker are on track for sometime in 2015. Devil’s Third is also re-confirmed for an appearance (finally) this year.

Two as yet un-named titles, Project Giant Robot and Project Guard are slated for this year, too. The former of those is planned for the first half of the calendar year.

Unfortunately, there’s no news on Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. The title is still listed as “TBD.”

I really hope we see SMTxFE at E3 or in a Direct. I know it was mentioned to still be in development last year but I dont want this to become Nintendo's Duke Nukem Forever or FFvs13.

Heck, I would be satisfied if they said they weren't ready to show off the gameplay but gave us an idea of what they concept will be with some concept art. I can understand not wanting to show it off too early (especially with the way some gamers react to differences from reveal to release) but give a little tease. I'm more curious if this will play like an SMT game or like a FE game.

“For a long time, I wanted to create a FE on ours times, on the real world. Imagine a Pegasus that comes from the sky and lands on the Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo. I always though that would be incredible. At the same time, I know it’s hard because of how FE is. I visited many companies to express these ideas. When I went to Atlus, I was told that Shin Megami Tensei together with Fire Emblem is what I wanted. So, I soon said that to Intelligent Systems and started this very special collaboration. Oops! I shouldn’t say that the game takes place in the real world. We haven’t announced it, right?” - Hitoshi Yamagami

Set in the modern world.

To me, at least, this also implies it'll play like a Fire Emblem game.

EDIT: And as far as not hearing about it...I believe I saw it somewhere mentioned that the trailer was basically announcing that it exists? Development had just started, from what I understood.

I am hopeful for more. Why? Only one reason
Because Sony and Microsoft want to phase out last gen games this year, but third parties don't want to lose all of the income lost. So there is some chance it will happen.

Eh, if t ain't exclusive I don't really have any interest in 3rd party games for Wii U. Multiplats are dime a dozen and can be purchased for either of the other 2 consoles, both of which I also own.

That is why they will die.

You may want to wipe that up..

I know, right? With a lot of good games and backwards compatibility, it resembles last generation a lot more than the current generation. And thank god for that.
