Hmmm, if it doesn't come out this Fall, will there be any major exclusives for Wii U?

gamingpro1059d ago

U clearly don't know much then. Star Fox, splatoon, devils third to name a few.

themonado1059d ago

@gamingpro: Uh..I'm sure he was talking about Fall.

Metallox1060d ago

Wait until E3, and if not, well, yes, nothing will be given for Wii U this holiday season.

MrSwankSinatra1060d ago

There is literally nothing outside of Splatoon with a confirmed release date that i'm interested in (including 3DS).

These have been my only purchases for Nintendo platforms in 2015.

3DS - Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

Wii U - Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Mario Party 10 and Splatoon (Pre-ordered)

ps4 release dates are lies. Drive club was finally finished. ps4 fans buy early acces. gaming is crazy at the moment.

superchiller1060d ago

Wow you actually bought Rainbow Curse? The game is terrible, makes you play the whole game on the gamepad, and you can't even enjoy it on the TV. Total failure.

MrSwankSinatra1060d ago

@Superchiller It really is shame because the claymation graphics are beautiful.

Big_Game_Hunters1060d ago

It will for sure be out by fall, localization can't possibly take THAT long, the issue isn't whether it will come this year or not. The issue is that it should be out next month.

deafdani1060d ago

Localization is much, much harder than you seem to believe, so yeah, it can actually take THAT long, especially for such a text and dialogue heavy game.

Neonridr1060d ago

depends on if Star Fox releases this year, or what other surprises Nintendo may have. The good ol' wait and see approach I guess.

gangsta_red1060d ago

Starfox is suppose to be coming. I think this E3 will showcase this game as a huge exclusive for Nintendo.

Metallox1060d ago

They just stated that the game will arrive "later this year", it's something.

wonderfulmonkeyman1060d ago

The question now is, how much later is "later"?
Two, three months? Year's end?
They were still way too vague on how far along they are...

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

Star Fox
Devil's Third
Fatal Frame V
Yoshi's Woolly World
Mario Maker

Splatoon next month

Of course unannounced E3 reveals

DryBoneKoopa851060d ago

Every time I see Fatal Frame 5 is coming I get so excited! I hope Nintendo bundles 4 with 5. Now that would blow away my year for me!

Magicite1060d ago

I doubt it, unless U consider Mario Maker major.

YosefH641059d ago

AS of right now, they are still expecting to release Star Fox as the big game for the year but it doesn't look good that there's been no news on that AT ALL.

Finished? It's looking like it's barely even started. They just pulled a bunch of Japanese footage.

Neonridr1060d ago

I believe they said that all the locations were localized, but now they are working on getting all the voice acting done. Can't imagine this is a two day process.

They didn't "pull a bunch of japanese footage". They were playing the finished japanese game.

SageShinigami1058d ago

lol. So many disagrees--Nintendo's dickriders are incredible.

wonderfulmonkeyman1058d ago (Edited 1058d ago )

What's really incredible is what you're calling those that disagree, when you clearly weren't smart enough to consider that they wouldn't want to show off a version of the game with uneven translations, and thus wouldn't show it even if they were nearly done translating it.

Big_Game_Hunters1060d ago

Yeah?? wouldve never guessed after that japane.. oops i mean American direct we just had.

Maybay1060d ago

With 100+ hours of content, it'll take a monumental amount of time to translate this title.

DeusEx-Machina1060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

That English narrator was just terrible. I sincerely hope this is not an indication for the quality of acting we're going to be served in the localization.

Considering the high quality acting of the all British cast from the original Xenoblade, that would be a huge let down.

Big_Game_Hunters1060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

Nah thats just the treehouse girl because they haven't hired VA ilm guessing. Anyway, if you or anyone knows where i can find the treehouse footage i'll get you a bubble or something. I decided not to watch it to not spoil exploration for myself, but i'm regreting not watching it and can't find it.
