Looking forward to Splatoon, Devil's 3rd, Yoshi, Xenoblade, Star Fox and whatever else we are surprised with.

More Mario Kart 8 DLC I'm guessing, as they announced yesterday there will be even more.

Pokken Tournament port sounds pretty reasonable, but the game isn't coming out for Japanese arcade until the summer. A port can take anywhere between 6 months to a year to do, so we wouldn't see it this year.

Intelligent Systems is working on finishing up development on that second Fire Emblem title for 3DS set for release this summer in Japan. They also finished development on Codename Steam a few months ago. In addition, the developer is providing at least producer supervision level support on Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei which Atlus is primarily developing, of course. I doubt they'll have any new projects to announce this year.

Unfortunately, Sin & Punishment 2 didn't sell well on Wii, so the franchise is likely going to remain dormant for a long time. As we know, Platinum Games is currently busy tackling two projects: Scalebound for Xbox One which may not even make it out this year and a new project is being worked on apparently for PS4 acording to one of Platinum's statements. The director is the same guy who handled Bayonetta 2. Platinum Games may be better off being handed a Nintendo IP to use instead of an original game if Nintendo decides to publish a new game from them.

For what it's worth, one of the Nintendo producers - Kensuke Tanabe - has expressed interested in wanting to return to Donkey Kong Country 3D for Retro Studios to develop. While I don't think that is the next Wii U project Retro is currently working on, it could be something we may see on Nintendo's next-gen platform.

Camelot's development track record shows it generally makes games every 2 years, so we may not see a new game come out this year, but perhaps we could at least have the game announced and released next year.

Retro Studios isn't going to have enough time to release a new game this year. While it is posisble they could announce a new title, the developer's track record has shown with its last two games, that it doesn't announce them until the games are releasing that same year.At least this was the case with DKC: Returns and initially with DKC: Tropical Freeze which was likely only delayed due to Nintendo needing another game release in the first half of 2014 besides Mario Kart 8 which didn't come out until the end of May.

Next Level Games should be ready to announce a new project by E3, but it is anyone's guess if it will be coming out this year and for what platform. The developer's last released title was Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon back in March 2013.

Capcom seems like it is content with working on other platforms such as Ps4, Xbox One, PC and 3DS. Wii U stopped getting HD ports of Resident Evil after Revelations came out in 2013. It's not exactly a good sign of Capcom showing much interest in wanting to support Wii U this year. The developer probably wants to focus on using its new game engine, Pantae Rhei, which isn't supported for Wii U, so that's another bad sign.

It wouldn't be surprising if Tecmo Koei ends up announcing a new Dynasty Warriors cross over with a Nintendo IP given the success of Hyrule Warriors, particularly in North America, where it sold best. The games also don't seem to take that long to make either.

If one of them is MH4U then I guess I'm also buying a Wii U.

wonderfulmonkeyman1263d ago

It would be the smartest decision Capcom has yet made.

Pyro2000x1263d ago

Capcom needs to make a new engine for PS4 and PC because Wii U specs are weak and boring.

I disagreed with both of your comments sorry.

wonderfulmonkeyman1263d ago (Edited 1263d ago )

@ Pyro
Trash the specs all you want, but Xenoblade X looks gorgeous and so would Monster Hunter 4 on Wii U.
They're nowhere near being weak or boring.
Monolith Soft has proven it, and Capcom could easily take advantage of it.

Nintendo should just buy the Sony brand to get their marketing. If you believe the ps4 is powerful then you were fooled. All of these consoles are weak sauce. Pc games get pirated too much.

Basically nintendo should wait for the ps5 to come out and pull a Samsung by releasing better spec console.

I'd rather them scale the power of what they have now to match current pc offerings. If I'm gonna pay for an expensive console then I want the best not just higher numbers.

This was supposed to be the gen where sony had a true HD only console that runs at 60fps. Instead we have games struggling to even match unreal 4 tech. What we got is a ps3 sequel that can actually run that content in hd. What is funny is the wiiu could also it actually does it using one core also.

Too much good stuff is never enough...

Exodecai1263d ago

New Wario Land.... Please?

mrbojingles1263d ago

I'm guessing Animal Crossing U, one random weird eShop title and I hope something using the 3D World engine another time. Retro's new title can't ship so soon, not until 2016 fall at earliest. Maybe Next Level Games's new game? Whatever it is.

I'd love Mario Galaxy 3 using 3DWorld engine though I think that would be unlikely. Pikmin 4 seems to be hinted at recently, I think Xenoblade/Mario Maker and Yoshi need one more major title this fall, other than Star Fox. My money is on Animal Crossing U or Pikmin 4, or both.
