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

gamingpro938d ago

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

themonado938d ago

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

Metallox939d ago

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

MrSwankSinatra939d 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.

superchiller938d 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.

MrSwankSinatra938d ago

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

Big_Game_Hunters939d 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.

deafdani938d 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.

Neonridr939d 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_red939d ago

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

Metallox939d ago

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

wonderfulmonkeyman938d 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-Rory938d ago (Edited 938d ago )

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

Splatoon next month

Of course unannounced E3 reveals

DryBoneKoopa85938d 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!

Magicite938d ago

I doubt it, unless U consider Mario Maker major.

YosefH64938d 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.

Neonridr939d 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.

SageShinigami936d ago

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

wonderfulmonkeyman936d ago (Edited 936d 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_Hunters939d ago

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

Maybay939d ago

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

DeusEx-Machina939d ago (Edited 939d 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_Hunters938d ago (Edited 938d 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.
