MMGN: The Wii has had a year to forget in 2011, as we look forward to the impending release of its predecessor, the HD Wii U, in 2012. However, it’s far from done and dusted, with a strong ending to the year reminding us why the console was once so dominant and even echoing Nintendo’s pledge to give “core” gamers what they want next generation.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the obvious example, but that doesn’t even have a release date. However, it’s not alone. Xenoblade Chronicles should be high on your wish list, but all is forgiven if you're mystified by its existence.
