Why it’s Now Time to Get a Wii U

Callum May at The Koalition writes: It’s a secret to nobody that the Wii U had a bumpy first year. The console released at Christmas 2012 with little fanfare due to not only the lack of effective marketing, but also the lack of system selling titles. Nintendo Land did not provide the same accessible experience as Wii Sports once had. Zombi U felt like a bland zombie survival game with a few gimmicks and New Super Mario Bros U failed to distinguish itself as anything particularly new. Couple those games with a small selection of ports and you can see why Nintendo’s new console was not a day one purchase for many.

We are now coming up to Christmas of 2014 and I believe it’s time to re-evaluate what this console can offer and whether its new and upcoming releases are something that is now able to give it value. Two years of work has been put into this library and I think that with currently released titles such as Bayonetta 2 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and highly anticipated upcoming games, Xenoblade Chronicles X and The Legend of Zelda Wii U, it is finally time to get a Wii U.

I'm looking to get a Wii U this Christmas. Going to be a good holiday with all the great game to play now. Can not wait!

Same here. I probably should've picked one up on Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but I'm looking at getting one before the year's out.

Prior to E3 2014, I was very curious to see what Nintendo would be releasing on the Wii U. After having a look at Captain Toad, Zelda 2015, and Splatoon I definitely have to give them props on putting together a great lineup of games.

Must buy Console IMO, yes it's might be secondary to ps4,X1 and PC but how can anyone miss nintendo games

You'd be better off getting a Wii U over a Wii because it's BC with all Wii games.

I expect I'll get one for Zelda.

Zelda is something of a ritual for me. Like, if LoZ was an old flame who showed up after I was married....yeah. Hide the kids.

Also Mario Kart, as that was my first-ever console experience.

I'm sure I've read this article (or similar) at least 10 times now this year.
