Here's hoping they have some unannounced games set for release this year... both the WiiU and 3DS schedules are looking pretty barren at the moment.

I wouldn't call them barren.
Small, yes, but Xenoblade X and Splatoon alone are enough to avoid being barren.

MrSwankSinatra1175d ago

You're crazy if PS4 or Xbox One released with only two games for the rest of the year they would be barren. Nintendo is no different.

wonderfulmonkeyman1175d ago

It's not only two games, Swank.
But then again, I hold firm doubts that you've even looked beyond the big names enough to know that.

If anything needs the games it's WiiU. I hope they annouce some good one's! remakes would even do.

Barren is a bit harsh, we have Yoshi's WW, Star Fox, MK8 DLC, Mario Maker, X, splatoon, Plus whatever else that gets announced.

I do not know if I am going to pick up Yoshi. Looks great, but might not be my kind of game, like Kirby.

New announcements??
Ohhhhhh, I sincerely hope there really is a new Paper Mario game due this summer....

After the recent announcement...I feel a void in the fall where a certain something used to be : (

I hope to see some Starfox, hopefully bumped over to the fall to spread things out and at least two more decently big games revealed. Like others have been saying, Xenoblade will definitely be more than enough to keep people busy throughout the year. A huge world, loads of exploration, and you get to have mechs! With that, the loss of a particular game isn't as hard a blow as it would have been without X.

So with a shooter (Splatoon), an open world jrpg (X), a side scrolling platformer (woolly world), and a flight fighter which has yet to be elaborated on as it could end up being an fps or who knows what else as well (Starfox), all fans should be taken care of in some fashion :). So I think just two new mainstreamish games at the least would be perfect. That's not even counting Devil's Third, which takes care of another niche, at least.

We will be fine, and I can't wait for the direct :D

Star Fox isn't going to be summer

tinparron1175d ago

Good then we can for sure count on it for Fall instead of hoping, as I had suggested. Do you think it will stay vehicle based, or be more like the GCN games?

Here's hoping they announce localizations for the Dragon Quest 3DS games and a release date for the localization of Bravely Second.

Would be cool to see the next Pokemon game, release date for Mewtwo DLC, etc.
