Top 7 Wii U Exclusive Games Heading Our Way

CS: ''For gamers, the most important difference between the Xbox One, Wii U, and PlayStation 4 is the games. Sure, they have differences in CPU and graphical power, but none of that matters unless it’s used to fuel awesome gaming experiences.''

Kinda sad a tennis game is one of the top exclusives. Mario sports games are cool but for it to be a "top exclusive" in a top 7 list speaks volumes about the state if Wii U right now. Two Mario games and a Mario spin-off are keeping it afloat until NX releases I guess.

The system sure could use a Wario game or a Luigi game if we're going to get a bunch of Mario related titles anyway. It's been a while. Hell, wouldn't even mind another Princess Peach game. At least keep it fresh, rotate these in, they get less attention in the Marioverse than Yoshi overall.

While we're at it get F-Zero and Pokemon on the Wii U.

7 exclusives all coming within a one year period... is way better than any other dedicated gaming platform out there. Only one I can think of that *might* be better off is the NDS, and that's only if Square-Enix has some surprise announcements.

Spotie1193d ago

A one year period starting when? Four of the games don't even have release dates.

As for "better than any other dedicated gaming platform," that's pretty far off, too.

Sly-Lupin1193d ago

Yoshi's Woolly World - October 2015
Super Mario Maker - September 2015
Xenoblade Chronicles X - December 2015
Starfox Zero - November 2015
Mario Tennis Ultra Smash - November 2015
Zelda WiiU - TBA 2016
Fire Emblem x SMT - TBA 2016

That's two games sometime in 2016, and five games due out within six months.

How does that compare to the PS4/XB3/Vita/3DS? Not well.

In that same time-period, PS4 only has Ratchet & Clank and Disgaea 5 for the rest of 2015; for 2016 as a whole, there's The Last Guardian and Uncharted 4. That's it.

Xbox 3 has Crackdown in 2015 and in 2016 Gears of War 4, Quantum Break and Recore, whatever that is.

The PS Vita has Trails of Cold Steel and Persona 4 Dancing All Night in 2015, and in 2016 there's Zero Escape 3.

The 3DS has Legend of Legacy, Triforce Heroes and Project Mirai DX in 2015, and god knows what in 2016.

So... yeah, I stand by my initial statement. I don't understand why you think this is so "far off," Spotie. Nintendo has always had a solid bank of first party offerings, and that means exclusives, while the currently console generation has largely been defined by multiplatform releases.

Spotie1193d ago

In the next 6 months? That's it?

You sure you're not leaving any games off those lists?

Street Fighter, No Man's Sky, Until Dawn, Persona 5, Uncharted Collection, One Piece, Deception, SAO, Dragon Quest, Onechanbara, Tearaway...

Halo 5, Forza 6, Gears Ultimate, Rare Replay, Tomb Raider, Fable, Cuphead...

That's just from a quick GameStop/wiki search, but I think I've made my point.

Plus, where did you get the release dates for Star Fox and Mario Tennis?

Not really a good idea to stand by your original statement.

Sly-Lupin1193d ago

I'm using Wikipedia and looking all the the games with any release-date information, from the specific dates to the "TBA 2016" tags. It's entirely possible that I've missed some games.

As for the games you mentioned....

Street Fighter (5, I assume) is multiplatform; No Man's Sky is multiplatform; Until Dawn is a PS4 exclusive, so you're right, I missed this one ;Persona 5 is multiplatform; Uncharted collection is multiplatform (obviously... why would you even mention it in the first place?); One Piece (Musou 3, I assume) is multiplatform; Sword Art Online (either game) is multiplatform; Dragon Quest XI has no release information, or indeed ANY information of any kind, beyond that it is a thing that will one day exist--and even when it does, it may never be localized overseas; Onechanbara Z2 is indeed another exclusive, that's two I've missed; Tearaway is multiplatform.

On to the Xbox: Halo 5 is an exclusive, guess I missed it, too; as is Forza 6; RareReplay is a collection of old games, so it's very obviously multiplatform; Tomb Raider 2 is multiplatform; Fable Legends is multiplatform; Cuphead is multiplatform, too.

So, yeah, even though I missed a few, my initial statement was still valid. the PS4 has 6 total exclusives dated for the period in question; the XB3 has 6 as well; Vita has 3.

But keep in mind this article was just listing 7 "top exclusives." If we were to apply the same filter to other platforms' exclusives, they'd be much shorter lists. But that's pretty subjective, eh? So let's broaden the list of WiiU exclusives to match the others instead.

Added to the WiiU's list: Fatal Frame 5, Devil's Third and Art Academy.

So the scorecard is as follows:

WiiU: 10
PS4: 6
XB3: 6
3DS: 3
PSV: 3

So, yeah, still standing by my statement. Don't like the WiiU as a platform? Don't care for the games on it? That's fine. But that doesn't change the fact that Nintendo is the only big platform company out there that's solidly committed to exclusive content (as evidenced by them taking the lead almost exclusively through first-party software).

A short lesson on fanboy logic:

Stage 1: "Gee, I really love [Platform X]!"
Stage 2: "But I don't own [Platform Y], so I don't care about it's games."
Stage 3: "I hate all of [Platform Y]'s games!"
Stage 4: "All of [Platform Y]'s games are objectively terrible!
Stage 5: "I hate people who own [Platform Y]!"
Stage 6: "I hate people who like [Platform Y] games!"
Stage 7: "[Platform Y] has no games and no one likes it.

"So the scorecard is as follows:

Persona 4: Dancing All Night
Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls
Norn9: Var Commons
Corpse Party: Blood Drive
Zero Escape 3
Code: Realize -- Guardian of Rebirth
Murasaki Mist: Akara’s Journey

Troll harder. Wii U has trash exclusives in spades but Vita is tearing. It. UP. Have a blast with Murrio Tetanus, Yoshi's "Please Forget About 'Yoshi's New Island' When You Buy This Otherwise You'll Have Second Thoughts" Wooly World, Super Mario Maker: The Game That Isn't Actually A Game, and Zelda "Might Not Be Exclusive To Wii U" Wii U. And Art Academy made me laugh when you listed it, btw, thought you should know.

Your list is sad, son. Don't crap talk the Vita or just generally out your bum. Besides, it isn't quantity but quality so even IF Wii U had more exclusives, there's plenty of people who aren't interested in all of those. Same for Vita of course but I stand by MY arguments.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1193d ago (Edited 1193d ago )


Zero Escape 3 isnt exclusive to Vita. It on 3DS also.

And if you want to include Third Parties exclusives

Total: 18
Til Spring 2016

This is an opinion piece. Yet you talk as its an official definitive guide to what are the best upcoming games on the Wii U.

If it makes you happy switch Mario Tennis with Fatal Frame.

Also I would like to note this will be the first Mario Tennis that you can play online.

Axecution1194d ago

oh gosh. This is so awful.
I dont regret the WiiU cause theres been a couple really good games but like this is pretty bad

1194d ago
RPGrinder1194d ago

Considering this is more first party exclusives than the other consoles are getting this year, I do not get the complaining.

Mario Maker and Xenoblade for me

AndrewLB1194d ago

Xenoblade on Wii was an outstanding game which has really set a high bar for Chronicles X. I'll have to borrow a friends wii u when the game comes out.

MSBAUSTX1194d ago

The game is going to have like 300 hours of gameplay in it. You have a friend that will let you borrow a system for a period of time long enough to complete that much content? I sure dont and wouldnt lol.
