Nintendo is bringing some of their unique Wii games to Wii U in the next few weeks starting with Zangeki no Reginleiv. Developed by Earth Defense Force creators Sandlot, the game makes use of Wii MotionPlus to slash limbs off giants.
Do you like/love Star Fox and Kid Icarus Uprising? If so ... get Sin & Punishment: Star Successor. You can thank me later.
I never played it. I remember seeing it on store shelves once. Nintendo has surprisingly a ton of new i.p's but people just fail to notice them and only look at there more popular franchises. If people supported Nintendo and making new ip's they would support games like this, Xenoblade, Splatoon, etc.
The reason people think Nintendo doesn't make other IPs is because the sales of Mario platformer, Kart, Smash, Pokemon for example are just so great that it overshadows nearly everything else. And the reason they make so many Marios and Pokemon games is the same reason Sony makes so many Uncharted games (5 in 8 years)... they sell. The more a franchise sells, the more you generally are going to get said franchise. Still with that said ... no single publisher has more successful IPs than Nintendo does.
Sin and Punishment is not a new IP. First one came out on N64 in Japan.
what's wrong with these two games? both are downright amazing and pandora' tower is highly underrated.
The only real issue present is with Pandora's Tower, actually. There's a glitch near the end of the game where trying to enter the towers will instantly freeze the entire console, and no patch has been delivered to fix it. If that glitch persists in the re-release, it's going to be a big disappointment...
Want sin and punishment.
I still own my wi hard copy. It is very very good. If you like shooters and Japanese style you will love it. It is hard though.
Pandora’s Tower is great! I bought it twice, the JPN version and the US release....years later. It is under-rated. Sin & Punishment: Star Successor I played a bit of, but never beat it. I'll pick it up again, if they are going to continue the $9 sale.
Pandoras Tower is pretty messed up. Love it.
If Pandora's Tower ever gets released here in the NA eShop, I hope that the 'game breaking' glitch fans talk about gets patched for that version. Also, I would love to get Sin & Punishment. I was already considering buying the $20 or so Wii copy to use on Wii U with my classic controller, but if it came out digitally for $10 on the first week I might just opt for the digital copy instead. I would be interested in getting Zangeki no Reginleiv, as well, but when it comes to Wii games I much prefer 'traditional' controllers (such as the classic controller). However, if I correctly understand, that game would not accept the classic controller but the pro classic controller, which makes me frown, heh.
I love that Sin Punishment game on Wii.. I recommend it a lot
Sin and Punishment next to Astebreed is the only rail shooter series that remotely comes close to touching the Panzer Dragoon series. Seriously if you haven't played these games you owe it to yourselves.
What about US Wii releases?
I'm loving that Nintendo are releasing a lot of the rarer Wii games for the Wii U via eShop. Puts games back in the hands of the gamers and out of the tight gollum like grip of those scalpers.
We want US release! Release them in the US 10 bucks the first week and I will easily throw 20 bucks at you! common Nintendo.
I'd sure take a Sin & Punishment sequel right about now.
