Nintendo in 2012: Is There Anything to Look Forward To?

GamerFitNation writes: "2012 is finally upon us and with a new year that means new games, peripherals, devices, gadgets, and hardware, etc… Now Sony and Microsoft have a pretty decent amount of releases for this year with Sony Launching a new handheld next month and Microsoft always looking to improve upon Xbox Live and its Kinect hardware. What does this mean for Nintendo? It seems like Nintendo has the least amount of steam going into the New Year, or do they?" (3DS, Wii, Wii U)

Nintendo seems to have a pretty solid lineup for the 3DS, I'm really interested to see if Nintendo pulls things together for the Wii U at this years E3.

I'm very interested to see what Nintendo has to show, more interested in a price point. If they can show me a new console with HD Zelda, Mario, Metroid ect... and price it $350 or lower, I think they will do well.

from what i seen from the wii U...
It looks like you will be using a tablet to look through to view your big screen hdtv.... Umm, okay... I think that only might be interesting and useful if they release a game like "where's Waldo??" and judging from its game lineup, I don't think next gen will be here till Sony and Microsoft release their new consoles.

Can't wait to see more on Wii U. Really, little is known about it... I want to see software, prices, specs, apps.
theeg  +   1317d ago
i think the wii u is going to be really cool and will be succesful, whether or not it will be a purchase right away for me remains to be seen and hinges largely upon whether or not there are some awesome, core ip's

metroid, zelda, resident evil, baten kaitos(i wish),castlevania

get a few of those in 1080p at 60 frames per second and you got my money nintendo!

try 15+ million 3ds's

I thought they had the most steam going into this year, seeing as how they have the most games and an entire console with it's own as of yet unannounced games.

Yeah, Ninty is gonna rock 2012 :)

Is that a joke? The wii-u and a massive number of 3ds games. We also get xenoblade in the us and the last story in europe not to mention ds games are still coming like devil survivor 2. This year is nintendos year, they have all the momentum if they advertise and capitalize on it.

Im getting mgs3, re revelations, tales from the abyss, kid icarus, and xenoblade all in the few months of the year. Im excited, we also get the vita and massive games like re6, ff13-2, and halo 4. Its going to be a HUGE year for gaming.

All I care about is the new Smash Bros to be honest.
