Awesome list. I don't yet own a Wii U but some of these titles definitely may convince me to pick one up later this year.

Dude,what are you waiting for? Now is the time to get a Wii-U with all the amazing software, what more can you ask for? Jump on board man.

I'm especially excited for Xenoblade X and Devil's Third.

Devil's Third, in particular, is looking like it will be the mature online multiplayer shooter that Wii U gamers have been asking for, for ages, but never really got from people like Activision.

Great gun play mixed in with well-done melee mechanics.
Tons of extremely cool [and sometimes frightfully strange] customization options for your characters [giant cat head, anyone?XD]
Plenty of extra guns and melee weapons to unlock.
Different kinds of fun online multiplayer modes that haven't really been seen in any other shooter.
Keeping up the standards of other shooters by providing voice chat and clans.
Decent health and defense parameters to the players so that they don't feel like they're made of wet tissue paper...

Oh, and did I mention the stage builder?


Am I the only one who's really happy about that?
After two full CoD games that didn't even get their full amount of DLC maps, suddenly we're getting a shooter that gives us the opportunity to make as many maps as we want?

That, is how you please an audience that has been looking for better treatment.

It also helps that the story looks interesting, and although we haven't gotten any new looks yet, apparently they've done great things for the graphics since those early build trailers, so we'll see how that goes. [though I get the feeling that the elitists will slam on it regardless of how much they've improved it just because it's on Wii U]

Devil's Third is exciting because we don't get too many "for fun" multiplayer games (at least not for consoles), games like Timesplitters that don't take themselves too seriously, just zany and over the top shooters.

I'm interested to see how it has advanced as well. The sandbox multiplayer is intriguing, my guess is we can create and upload stages and set-ups. Visually the game didn't look that bad at E3, considering its development history for last-gen consoles and having changed game engines.

BoyOhBoy..The air/artillery strikes!

Yup! Devil's Third is already looking mighty tasty!!!! What has the other guys technically advanced home video game consoles done as far as great video game software development????? Yeah exactly Zero! All those haters can talk the talk but when you get right down to it which home video game console represents great video game software advancement? Only one lol!!! It may have a funny name but the Wii U is your best bet for fun engaging video game software!!! Nintendo will win this generation based on pure quality of content if not actual console sales!

AJBACK2FRAG2758d ago

I like it when people disagree with me! When people don't say why I think they're weak.

Wonder_Punk2758d ago

As soon as the haters stop worrying about stuff that should have no bearing on them like sales numbers they might just realize what an awesome system the Wii U is. There are tons of great games and many more to come!

_-EDMIX-_2758d ago

LOL....I can't stop laughing.

...Xenoblade X and SMT X. Thats it.....

The rest are...meh.

Sooo out of this years games, The Witcher 3, MGSV, Uncharted 4, Batman Arkham Knight, Dead Island 2, The Division, Bloodborne, RE Revelations 2 etc....

Devil's Third fits in some where? LMFAO!

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem...maybe and X. Thats about it.

Still not enough for me to get a Wii U this year, I'd rather just get one used next year. Too many great games coming out in fall, to spend a few hundred on just 2 games...

wonderfulmonkeyman2758d ago (Edited 2758d ago )

Devil's Third is worth a dozen of any of those games you mentioned, to a fanbase that has gotten mostly trashy ports from lazy third party developers for their latest system.
Hell, Xenoblade X and Zelda alone will give more replay value than the majority of that list, and most of them are gonna be out on PC as well, or have equivalent games that beat them in quality, which doesn't even make them special.

DryBoneKoopa852758d ago (Edited 2758d ago )

Way I see it more AAA exclusives are coming to the Wii U then any other system. I have an Xbox 1 and the only great games so far I have played are Dragon Age Inquisition, Alien Isolation, Dying Light, and Sunset Overdrive. Everything else has been pretty meh so far.

Only games I'm excited to play this year on the Xbox 1 is The Witcher 3, Batman Arkham Knight, Dead Island 2, State Of Decay and the new Tomb Raider game. That's it... 5 games for the X1.

The Wii U on the other hand... Since December I have had and will have...

Captain Toad
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Mario Party 10
Mario Kart 8 DLC pack #2
Devils Third
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Yoshi's Wholly World
Star Fox U
The Legend Of Zelda U
(Forgot to mention getting Lego Jurassic Park and the new Lego Marvel game!)

Plus all the Virtual console and Indie games that are coming.

Possible 2015 release
SMT X Fire Emblem
Fatal Frame 5
Whatever the HUGE AAA Tantalus Games port is.

Also E3 is only a few months away who knows what else Nintendo is dropping in 2015.

I will and always will stand by Nintendo. Don't care what anyone else thinks or says.

Wonderful1012758d ago

Uncharted 4, Dead Island 2, The Division, Bloodborne, RER 2? HAHAHAHA! Thanks for the laugh man, made my week.

I totally am a Sony fan ;)

MSBAUSTX2758d ago

No. Youre a sony faboy troll and a hypocrite as proven by MiyamotoSon.

FullmetalRoyale2758d ago


I'll be playing Uncharted, Zelda, Bloodborne, Batman, Starfox, and many more this year, while you are busy acting like a jackass.

Enjoy half of the great games coming this year.

belac092758d ago

agreed thats why i have both ps4 and WiiU, and also new 3ds xl, and vita.

Neonridr2758d ago (Edited 2758d ago )

Zelda - which no doubt will be up for GOTY as every other version of the game has been - is "meh" now??

I love how Dead Island 2 or Batman is now suddenly more important or influential to the gaming world than the Legend of Zelda.

keep drinking the kool-aid my friend.

AJBACK2FRAG2758d ago

Your nut's and your loss dude! Your list looks so meh to me!
