Nintendo 2013 Predictions: 3DS Lite, Zelda Ocarina HD, Mario 64 U, Price Cuts and GTA V

2012 was a year that Nintendo needed to be monumental. With the harsh reception of the 3DS due to lack of software and price, and the launch of a new console, Nintendo had a lot of ground to cover in only a year. The Wii U has officially launched, and the 3DS XL has been introduced to try and help the 3DS market. 2013 is a year that could very well make or break Nintendo.

I want EU version Monster Hunter 4 and Dragon Quest VII remake 3DS!


Bayonetta 2.
Xenoblade 2(Monolith Soft other AAA jrpg).
Exklusive Final Fantasy WiiU.

YES! I am simply dying for that Dragon Quest VII remake. 3DS will not have to worry about success again when this game comes out in Japan but I hope Squeenix don't forget us. I'm also waiting for Dragon Quest Monsters 3DS and Dragon Quest X. As a DQ Fan I've been let down in recent years...

Bayonetta 2 will be an awesome addition to the Wii U and I'm still waiting for a Wii U Final Fantasy as well. You know, one that goes back to its roots and isn't like The 4 Heroes of Light. I want something from them that's HD, battle system like 1-10, and with engaging characters.

xflo3602350d ago

3ds... zelda by retro studios, new 3ds redesign.

IIC0mPLeXII2350d ago

I am looking at the Final Fantasy exclusive to Wii U that would be bad ass. But seriously.....can we get a new IP Nintendo?

linkofrs2350d ago

thats why miyamoto stepped down from head of EAD, he's working on a new ip.

KangarooSam2350d ago (Edited 2350d ago )

You'd think that after 3 decades of milking classics Nintendo would realize that the 20th game is bad enough; but the thought of them now re-releasing the majority of those games is almost unbearable.

OoT HD would be great, I think most people would agree. But the guaranteed success of that just means Wind Waker HD, Mario Kart 1-7 HD, etc. All good games but the thought of that is UNBEARABLE.

PLEASE keep doing what you're currently doing Nintendo, milk current successful franchises with sequels AND gain the desperately needed third party support. This could work.

sdozzo2350d ago

I remake would be cool. HD remakes are boring.

Ben_Grimm2350d ago

That would be awesome, A NES Legend of Zelda remake!

I could get behind that. Maybe even merge 1 and 2 to make it a coherent story.

PopRocks3592350d ago

How about 3D remakes of the NES games with a more robust interpretation of the story? Now THAT'S something I'd like to see in HD.

But I do agree, move forward, not backward. Not unless you're celebrating an anniversary of some kind.

vickers5002349d ago (Edited 2349d ago )

You make it sound like it's an either or situation. It CAN be a BOTH situation.

It's not "either new sequels with no hd remakes, or hd remakes with no new sequels".

Most HD collections are handled by a different team other than the original developer, which means it doesn't take resources away from newer games.

All the good nintendo games take like a year or two after the system launces to come out anyway, so playing HD remasters of games like Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, Super Mario Sunshine (a game that looks f*cking beautiful on the dolphin emulator) to help pass the time would be awesome.

This is getting old. The 3ds is not getting a second stick revision. Not enough games use a second stick to warrant one... unless there are dozens of secret games using it right now in development.

People have been asking for/talking about such a revision less and less lately for a reason: it is incredibly unlikely at this point, and will most likely never be.

I think we will see monhun 4 in 2014, since we are getting 3U in March.

JohnnyAkiba2350d ago

GTA5 is heavy for a CPU. It will not be released for da WiiU.

linkofrs2350d ago

As far as i can see, if the developers want to make a wii u version they can. A lot of what makes it cpu heavy is the fact that developers offload most of the code onto the cpu, but with a gpgpu and the cpu thats in the wii u they should more then be able to develop the game for wii u.

AJBACK2FRAG2349d ago (Edited 2349d ago )

Hey. You're dreaming. Do you think Rockstar is going to let all that money just sit there? After the game is released on the 360 and PS3 all they'd have to do is bend over and pick it up! It must suck to see old Sony exclusives get passed around like well... you figure it out. I'll bet you bragging rights it'll make it to the WiiU.
