Eagerly Awaiting the Next Step for Nintendo

EB:
"News broke last week that StarFox Zero, Nintendo’s big holiday title for the Wii U, had been pushed back for an early 2016 release. While Super Mario Maker just recently launched as a massive title that found Nintendo some mainstream appeal and had great reception, a strong September release simply cannot carry a console through a holiday season with Fallout 4, Halo 5 and Star Wars Battlefront still coming. The Wii U never really stood a chance against those AAA titles, but it fits a recent trend that is worth questioning: where the hell is Nintendo going?"

Next Step: make things to make money

Why is it that everyone is conveniently forgetting about Xenoblade X and Fatal Frame 5?

You can call them niche all you want, but they're both AAA games, and the genres they fall under, horror games and RPG's, are HUGE right now in popularity.
Anyone with good taste who likes these genres should be looking to add these games to their collection.

Nintendo wasn't barren of good games for the holidays, even without Star Fox.

Ignoring ALL the Nintendo holiday games? What a worthless article

This article is pure sensationalized trash.

Everyone is waiting for the wiiu to die. I've never seen anything like this before. People want the games but hate the box that runs them. Or is this just popular postiering?

Anyway you look at it the wiiu ain't dead and it's shaping up that the nx is going to be an extension of the wiiu and possibly the new 3ds.

I agree with the title. I welcome the nx but the wiiu has a ton of potential. The many concepts swirling around the nx are quite exciting. It's going to get to a point where it's time to go ahead and get a wiiu though.

The games are there. It is very understandable of the money isnt. Yet waiting out the games is going to be impossible because the nx sounds to be backwards compatible and that very idea rings true with their new idea of developing a platform rather than an island.

I think the nx will be a great excuse for many to play these wiiu exclusives. Something tells me the wiiu will be the bare bones version of the nx though.
