Top 10 Wii U games we’re looking forward to at E3 2013

Wii U e3
E3 2013 is less than a month away, and all the big game publishers and developers are gearing up for what will be the biggest E3 in years. It will be all about next-gen, as Microsoft will reveal the Xbox 720, Sony will show off their PlayStation 4, and Nintendo will be showing off a ton of new games for the Wii U. Nintendo has confirmed that a new Mario Kart and 3D Mario will be showcased on the Wii U. Like Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo will kick off E3 with their own press conference just before the doors open for the main show.

We’ve collected the details on the Top 10 Wii U games that Nintendo has confirmed will be at E3 this year. And it looks like it’ll be the biggest E3 for Nintendo in years.

10: Wii Fit U

Originally announced at last year’s E3, Nintendo has been surprisingly silent about the Wii Fit U, considering that the previous Wii Fit is one of the all-time best selling video games in history and made hundreds of millions of dollars for Nintendo. At the very minimum, we expect Nintendo to unveil the price point and final release date of Wii Fit U. We wouldn’t be surprised of the game and Wii U balance board launch this Fall.

9: Bayonetta 2

Nintendo surprised everyone last year by revealing that Bayonetta 2 was coming exclusively to the Wii U. Nintendo didn’t show much besides a teaser trailer. A few months later, a Nintendo spokesperson revealed that the first Bayonetta 2 Wii U details will be revealed at E3 2013. There’s a lot of excitement around Bayonetta, so much that known Nintendo-hater/troll Michael Pachter said that he’ll buy a Wii U just to play Bayonetta 2.

8: Pokemon Rumble U

Nintendo has revealed bits and pieces of the new Pokemon Wii U game, and will hopefully showcase the final product at E3. The game will be the first Wii U title to feature NFC connectivity. Recently, Nintendo revealed the first figurines which will be used with the game. The game will launch in Japan just before E3, while we in the West will likely have to wait a big longer. E3 will be the perfect opportunity for Nintendo to show off the game to us in the West.

7: Yarn Yoshi

We don’t know much about this game, despite Nintendo releasing a few teaser trailers showcasing some gorgeous graphics. Yarn Yoshi on the Wii U will be the first Yoshi game on a home console in 15 years. Last time Yoshi got his own game was on the N64 with Yoshi’s Story. Check out the first gameplay video of the game.

6: Pikmin 3

Pikmin 3 will be released shortly after E3, on August 4, 2013. Which means Nintendo will have one last chance to show off the game and create even more excitement.

Wii U hype train

5: Mario Kart Wii U

Nintendo confirmed that a brand new Mario Kart Wii U game is in development and will be showcased at E3. We honestly have no idea what to expect, as Nintendo has gone out of their way to keep Mario Kart (and 3D Mario) very secret. The Mario Kart series has been in all sorts of directions during its lifetime — with Nintendo’s imagination, anything is possible for the Wii U version.

4: Super Smash Bros Wii U

Super Smash Bros Wii U
Nintendo confirmed that this game was in development quite a while ago, and is rumored to be released sometime next year. Super Smash Bros Wii U (or Super Smash Bros U) is in co-development with Namco Bandai, and the Namco team helping Nintendo create the new fighting game is none other than the team that worked on Tekken. Nintendo is working on Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and the 3DS simultaneously.

3: 3D Super Mario

When Nintendo announced that a Mario Kart Wii U game will be revealed at E3, they also dropped another bomb: E3 2013 will include the showcase of a brand new 3D Mario game for the Wii U. Again, we have no idea what direction Nintendo will take with Mario this time. The company is known for innovating, especially when it comes to the Mario series, so we doubt it will be another Super Mario Galaxy game. We think Nintendo has something completely new in store for us.

2: Zelda Wind Waker HD

Wind waker wii U
We expect Nintendo to blow the cover of Wind Waker HD for the Wii U, revealing all the details, the controls, plenty of gameplay videos, and more. Wind Waker HD was announced for the Wii U earlier this year, but we only got a few screenshots. At E3, we expect everything to be unveiled, as the game is scheduled for launch this Fall. Wind Waker HD is a remake of the original GameCube game, and features gorgeous new 1080p graphics. Just check out some of the screenshots here.

1: Brand new Wii U Zelda game

Last time we saw a Wii U Zelda game was two years ago — at E3 2011, and that was just a tech demo. According to our reports, Nintendo has assembled the biggest team ever to work on the upcoming Wii U Zelda game, scheduled for release in 2014. Nintendo has hinted that this new Zelda game will be shown off, or at least, teased at E3, in addition to Wind Waker HD. Until then, we’ll just have to enjoy Wind Waker HD, which will be released this Fall.

Wii U games we don’t expect to see at E3 2013

Nintendo will showcase 10 first party games at E3 2013. That’s a lot, more than in any of the E3 events over the past few years. And there are still some games left on the table which we likely won’t see. Those include: Metroid, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, Animal Crossing, Game & Wario.

We know all this sounds like we’ve already boarded the E3 hype-train, but in all honesty, this year’s E3 really is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ones ever for Nintendo fans. We’re looking forward to see Reggie, Iwata, and Miyamoto-san at E3!

    retro’s project?

    • Frankie

      Retro has to showcase it this year, it has been way too long.

      • Alienfish

        The only reason they didn’t show it last year is because they told Nintendo last minute that they weren’t quite ready.

        • DragonSilths

          Which is why we had that awkward extra time on Nintendo Land lol.

          • tronic307

            I’m surprised how much Nintendo Land has grown on me after actually playing it, considering how many people thought it was tied with Wonderbook for making E3 2012 suck.
            Oh, and who can forget SmartGlass? Everybody, that’s who!

          • DragonSilths

            I still haven’t beaten a single game on Nintendo Land. Would be better with Online.

          • DemonRoach

            an online dlc for nintendoland would be nice

          • Adam Baker

            Agreed. Although nothing beats couch co-op and Nintendo land was tailor made for local multiplayer. Think about what kind of experience it would be online without playing next to other players and not having that same level of communication thats necessary in many of the minigames that you’d have locally.

          • DragonSilths

            I agree about local multiplayer being fun but I moved right before the Wii U came out so I have nobody to play local multiplayer with. No brothers or sisters either. I have one cousin that also has a Wii U but we never hang out. So for me local multiplayer is usless for me.

          • david daniel wharton camacho

            i know, as fake as this sounds i DONT have any IRL friends :(

          • http://www.facebook.com/steven.mahl.5 Steven Mahl

            Agreed. And maybe voice chat lol

          • DragonSilths

            Well when Party Chat comes eventually maybe…

    • jay

      As far as I know it’s an original IP.

      • EM87

        I think so too, new ip or StarFox Reboot. I hope they’re doing Metroid though, cause they’re simply the best at doing it (Metroid Prime is my all-time favourite game). Other great stuff non listed in the article will be SMTxFE and Xeno imho, but Wii Sports U, which is very important for sales (maybe alongside a new, disruptive ip to increase the installed base), could be a pleasant surprise if done well and i’m sure that they’ll use properly the interaction between the gamepad and the wiimote. Wii Fit U could be nice for non-gamers, but they’ll have to advertise it (and Wii U in general tbh) better than they’re doing right now with currently available games. In any case remember that they are used to announce great stuff at Nintendo Direct conferences, so if something is missing we’ll probably see that in some Direct in the next few months.

      • NkoSekirei

        im thinking metroid prime 4 cause they left the third one wide open for a 4th one and im hoping dark samus is more of an rival to samus then as a final boss.I would like to see mother brain make a return and have an epic final battle like super metroid

        • DragonSilths

          Dark Samus is gone. No way Dark Samus makes a return. Even though Retro is doing Starfox if there is a MP4 then I say we need the Space Pirates to be the main villian’s and we find out who their leader is. Like in Halo fighting the Covanent and the Arbiter being their leader.

          • Alec Rowson

            Maybe another first person Metroid, but it would have to be a new saga, not a continuation of Prime, because [Kinda SPOILERS if you didn’t 100% Metroid Prime 1] as you said Dark Samus is gone, and Dark Samus is an incarnation of Metroid Prime after you defeat it in the first game. I’d love to see a new Metroid Saga from Retro eventually, but honestly I’m kinda hoping its a new Star Fox like rumors were claiming for a while.

          • DragonSilths

            I have been saying Retros game is Starfox for over a year now. Its really going to be epic if it is.

          • NkoSekirei

            she not dead and wont stay dead like the last 2 games cause theres still planets infected with phazon especially pirate homeworld and pirates can just rebuild her like they always do with ridley.And besides that how many times has ridley came back from the dead 4 to 5 times and mother brain 2 times.

        • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

          Metroid Prime 4 is unlikely but a new Metroid game is very plausible, dunno why everyone assumes it’s Starfox, it’s a possibility yes, but less likely. I guess we’ll see in June.

          As for the wide open Ending I’m pretty sure the Stalker is Sylux (yes, I got his name indeed :P) and the ending moves in to Metroid Prime Hunters, as me and many other Metroid Fansite owners have came to agreement, we’ll never know for sure until we see him/her again in a new Metroid game :) But most fans agree on the stalker being Sylux. Anyway I think e3 will be epic.

          • tronic307

            Hunters is supposed to take place between Prime 1 & 2. They should have just called it MetroidHunters; it had nothing to do with the Metroid Prime saga, which has been resolved. I’d like to see a Metroid 5, but no more Tecmo; their sexist tropes nearly destroyed Samus as a character.
            A new Metroid game from Retro would be fantastic, but those games never had broad appeal, for reasons unknown. I am a Metroid fan; there’s just not enough of us. I have a feeling Retro’s next game will be a brand new IP and a masterpiece.

    • RockieOllie

      take out wii fit u and put in retro’s project

      • Sidney Majurie

        Well Ithink they are reffering to announced games…

        • ThunderGod_Cid

          Well, if that’s the case, I’d replace Pokemon Rumble U with “X”, and replace Wii Fit U with The Wonderful 101.

          • Sidney Majurie

            True

    • Suraj Alexander

      I don’t know if i am being too hopeful but does anyone else get the feeling that Nintendo is hiding something really big for E3.

      They haven’t talked much about Wii U much but promised a huge increase in games. They sound very confident. Maybe, they will unveil Wii U’s hidden specs? Just being hopeful here.

      Maybe a new IP? That would be amazing.

      • LonDonE247

        i hope rumours of miyamotos secret game is indeed a first person game, that genre has grown so stale an unimaginative! shigeru the gaming god that he is could easily show everyone how a first person shooter or just a game in first person should be made, he redefined 2d side scrollers, by making super mario bros, an single handedly created a new genre, the plat-former, an then again smashed the industry all over again with the legend of zelda on nes, a non linear adventure, which had saves another first, an which had to beaten in several sittings, need i go on? pikmin showed strategy games could work an work well on consoles, mario 64 redefined what was possible with third person 3d games, with independent camera control’s, zelda ocarina of time with the z targeting, making action adventure games, play like never before, they guy is a total genius an the god father of gaming! kids these days have no idea how everything the guy touched or said has had a MASSIVE IMPACT on gaming,an game creation, an so when i heard he so badly wanted to make a fps game, this filled me with joy, as much as i love the genre, cod came along an killed all the innovation which the genre once had, an now the so called drones who buy cod have made all the developers of today dumb down all our beloved franchises an just kill creativity an chase the ££$$$!! metroid prime with retro an direct involvement from miyamoto created a new genre the first person adventure, an i believe miyamoto can save the genre, i so hope its a new i.p an maybe a fps! that would be mind blowing!

  • Micks610

    That picture at the end of the page scarred me for life….
    I will never be able to unsee that.

    • greengecko007

      The GIF at the end is amazing. Nintendo trip. @.@

  • Michael Ngo

    I doubt they will announce the new Zelda yet. But if they did, I’m predicting they will show a small teaser and at the final part of the trailer, you will hear Link’s voice

    • D.M.T

      I’m pretty sure they will announce it. It’s been almost 2 years already since the tech demo of Zelda Wii U. They need to show us at least a small trailer to make this E3 the best in many years.

    • Ugslick

      They told us a little bit of developmental direction in the Nintendo Direct and told us theyd show us the first details/glimpse of the Zelda game. I dont think theyll give much more than that, but it remains to be seen how long it will take to develop. I would guess itd release NEXT year, but theyll definitely show it off.

    • greengecko007

      I’m thinking they will at least show something on it. If they are targeting a 2014 release date, it would make sense to show off something constructive, since they have supposedly been making it for the past 3 years.

      • NkoSekirei

        or 2015 if they need to polish it even more i can wait and beside ill have plenty of games to keep me busy till then

    • DragonSilths

      Link will never talk. End of discussion.

      • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

        What are you talking about? We hear his voice in pretty much every game. He always yells “HYAAAAHHHH” when he swings his sword, lol

        • DragonSilths

          Grunting and moaning isn’t talking. His sound effects are perfect for him.

          • JumpMan

            the only thing in Zelda that i have ever discussed with my non-nerdy family peoples (psssh, how am i related to them?!) is with my sister about how Link always just goes “HYYYAAAAAH!”… it was a pretty great conversation.

          • DragonSilths

            Sometimes he goes Ahhhhhhh Uhhhh when he falls a far distance and hits the ground lol. So he makes other noises.

          • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

            Yeah, but the guy didn’t say he’d talk, he just said we’d hear his voice. Even if it’s just noises, it’s still his voice, hahaha. Oh that Hylian and his noises. Well, given the advances Skyward Sword made with speaking options in a few places, they may eventually actually have him speak, but that doesn’t really matter to me. Would be interesting though. I mainly just want the whip back though (would be nice if it at least stunned opponents like the boomerang used to, though, rather than just a painless flinch)

      • Tobias Naustdal

        in the hyrule historia link talked in the manga :3

        • Jeffrey Debris

          Also in the cartoon back in the 80s.

          • DragonSilths

            We never talk about that travisty.

        • DragonSilths

          That’s text based. They could do that in the games if they wanted. But he never has an actual voice aka voice actor.

    • Sidney Majurie

      Nintedo confirmed that they would be showing the new Zelda so…

  • Nintedward

    Why the hell is Pokemon Rumble U on the list but not say : Monolith softs X or Shin Megami tensei X Fire emblem ?

    Pokemon Rumble games are OK at a stretch. I guess it’s semi exciting to see the first NFC game in action
    (lol @ Reggie Thomas the tank engine)

    Last time Yoshi got his own game was on the DS not the N64 :P

    • D.M.T

      The author just picked up the most popular games and put them in a top 10 list, which explains why Monolith Soft X and Shin Megami/Fire Emblem games are not on the list.

      We can agree that our top 10 is slightly different from this author’s top 10

      • wiiudaily

        The list is of games that are CONFIRMED to be present at E3.

        • Dylan Tosti

          When was the new Zelda confirmed or hinted at being at E3, though?

    • blah

      but the DS isn’t a (home) console. The author didn’t say last yoshi game in general ;)

  • david jarman

    Those photos are creepy,yet…..here I am still looking at them

  • Zombie Boy

    It would be nice to see some third-party games as a lot of these are probably a year or more away…

    • Ugslick

      I think a lot of people on the internet have this consensus that games like Smash and Bayonetta and X will be released late 2014, Nintendo said in the ND that all the games they showcased are targeted for a late 2013 release. Personally I think Smash will be announced for December, but delayed to March :P
      But well definitely see a lot more games in the period from August – December. (Not including the new Zelda though, Wind Waker is slated for Holiday though)

      • DragonSilths

        Smash Bros 3DS version will be this holiday season. Wii U version wont be till 2014.

  • Super Buu

    Monolith’s X game? Retro Studios’ project? Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? Miyamoto’s new IP? We can all agree these games are a lot more exciting than things like Wii Fit U right? Right?

    • Nintedward

      My point exactly except put Pokemon Rumble where Wii fit U is. I think Wii fit U is a big deal for Nintendo and some of its casual fans. With the right Advertising I think Wii fit U will cause the same Wii fit lovers to go and buy it :)

      • JumpMan

        honestly, i had alot of fun playing Wii Fit + when my family got it as a group gift at Christmas. not nearly as much fun as Zelda or Mario, but still, alot of fun!

    • D.M.T

      Yes for us true gamers but for the casual female gamers there’s nothing more exciting than Wii Fit and Just Dance!!!

      • CharmanderRulz

        Why the need to label people having fun with their types of games? We all have games we play casually and if anything it’s more intensive both mentally and physically to play the motion games you listed than most considered “true gamers” games. As for singling out females be it there are less female gamers than male many are just as “true” as us. (plus most female gamers I know play nothing but fighters, beat ups and JRPGs very competitively)

    • Zombie Boy

      Don’t underestimate the power of Wii Fit – look what it did for sales of the original Wii.

      • Fred

        There were MILLIONS of people that bought a Wii because they wanted Wii Fit!!!

        • Mochlum

          But, they already have Wii Fit. I doubt they would buy a new system for a sequel. Not to mention the Move and Kinect exist now to rival that.

          • Fred

            Are you kidding me? People buy new excersize crap several times a year. They get bored of the old stuff and buy new stuff. If they liked Wii FIt they’ll buy Wii Fit U I know I probably will.

    • NkoSekirei

      i think monoliths new game xenoblade 2,bayonetta 2,super mario 3D,retros secret game,shin megami tensei X Fire emblem,wind waker,super smash bros u,mario kart u and many others that include third party games will be probably be shown at E3.

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    SUPER SMASH BROS!!!

  • William Cole

    The Reggie Train is money just waiting to be made. I can’t wait for the Zelda and Mario games mostly. That’ll hold me over for a good while. And Smash Bros. made me buy the system in the first place. Wii U’s sales are about to skyrocket and I can’t wait.

  • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.ponthier Matthew Ponthier

    Isn’t E3 June 11th? Am I doing my arithmetic wrong or isn’t that more than a month away?

    Regardless, I hope to see those games too, except Wii Fit U and Rumble, don’t really care much for those. I’d really like more info on Retro’s project and Project X from Monolithsoft though.

    • dubYA

      Lol! I thought I was the only one to notice. For a second I got excited and thought E3 had been moved up to May, but, sadly, that’s not the case…

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      I believe it was June 4, 5, 6

  • Ugslick

    Hey guys, you forgot a few BIG ones.
    Retros Studios game. It was due to be shown at E3 2012, but was pulled last minute. Well definitely see that this year. Also Monolith Softs game. We will also probably see gameplay and a release date for SMT X Fire Emblem, which is pretty big as well. And then there are the unannouced games that Nintendo has promised will be shown at E3, and that will be released in the holiday season :) No question this is the biggest E3 in a LONG time.

  • ChiwawaBoi

    does anyone know WHEN in june is E3?

    • DragonSilths

      June 11th to 13th…

  • D.M.T

    Allow me to tell you all my top 10 Wii U games i’m looking forward to at E3 this year.

    10. The Shin Megami and Fire Emblem crossover game. This game could sell like hot cakes. I see some people buying a Wii U for this game.

    9. Yarn Yoshi.

    8. Xenoblade 2. I assume this is the game known as Monolith Soft X

    7. Pikmin 3

    6. 3D Super Mario

    5. Wind Waker HD and/or new Zelda

    4. Mario Kart. I’m hoping this Mario Kart also has characters from other Nintendo franchises like Pikachu, Star Fox etc.

    3. Bayonetta 2

    2. Retro Studio’s secret project. I assume it’s a new Metroid.

    1 Super Smash Bros.

    I also would like to see a new F-Zero game but this is unlikely and if Wonderful 101 doesn’t release before E3 then please show us more about the game at E3.

    I also wanna see some 3rd party games shown by Nintendo.

    • wiiudaily

      Good list, surprised you don’t have Zelda anywhere near the top.

    • DragonSilths

      Yoshi Land U not Yarn Yoshi. What about Miyamotos new IP? Also Retro Studios is doing Starfox not Metroid.

      • D.M.T

        It’s a new IP from Miyamoto, I haven’t heard anything about it so I don’t know if I should be excited about it. I guess I should because it’s Miyamoto

        • DragonSilths

          The only bad game from Miyamoto was Wii Music lol. Should be excited for it though lol.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        There’s a Yarn Yoshi too.

  • Loren Baker

    what about a sonic game?

  • Mr. Hobo

    “known Nintendo-hater/troll Michael Pachter”, lol, so true. And isn’t E3 more than a month away in July?

    • SYates

      It’s June! (11th-13th). :)

      • DragonSilths

        Oops looks like it is June 11th to 13th.

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    Heres my top 8 (in order)
    -Pikmin 3
    -Pokemon Rumble U
    -Yarn Yoshi
    -Super Luigi U
    -Mario Kart U
    -3D Mario
    -Zelda
    -Smash Bros

  • SYates

    I have never been more terrified of Reggie… Especially with that last image. Well, there goes tonight’s sleep!

  • greengecko007

    Lots of stuff to look forward to at E3 this year. In my opinion, Wind Waker is placed way to high on this list, considering it’s a remake, and the other games are new. The NEW Zelda should turn some heads at E3 though.

  • The_fuzz_buzz

    Dat picture….

  • Archiq09

    No More Heroes 3 maybe because Suba51 has tell he want make 3rd on Wiiu, Conduit 3 I know more people want it, for people who want Bf4 on WiiU, you will can play HomeFront 2 (similar)………

    • Petri

      I like the large battlefields of Battlefield series and the mix of infantry and vehicle combat.
      Though Battlefield 3 left a bit of an sour taste, felt little too much like CoD.
      Homefront was interesting, but I never got around of playing it.

      • NkoSekirei

        but Ea is being a dik about not getting their way by merging origin with nintendo network their just abunch of 2 years old throwing a tantrum

      • Archiq09

        Homefront you can be 32 players and mp is more hardcore but easy to lost in action and a campaing too…

  • Tecpedz94

    Do you want people to get a seizure with that last image….

    • John Smith

      *Le me going to hospital

      • Tecpedz94

        WHATTT !!?? LMAOO

  • Dumbpants

    They announced in the most recent Nintendo Direct that the Yoshi Yarn game is a 3DS IP.

    • DragonSilths

      Lol no dude. There’s 2 different Yoshi games. Yoshi Island 2 on the 3DS and Yoshi Land U on Wii U. You forgot the Miiverse hack revealed the Yoshi game for Wii U way back then.

      • Dumbpants

        Ahhhh! I knew about the earlier reveal, but I thought it was the same game. Thanks!

        • jay

          You can tell by the graphics.

          • Dumbpants

            Yea, I didn’t watch that part of the Nintendo Direct, I just read an anouncement about it, and everyone was freaking about Zelda 3DS (which I am dang excited for) that all I heard was a yoshi game coming to 3DS, so I assumed it was the same as the wii u one.

        • DragonSilths

          No problem.

    • JuleyJules

      Regardless of the name of the Wii U Yoshi game he is made of yarn similar to the Kirby’s Epic Yarn.

      • DragonSilths

        True but the name from the Miiverse hack was Yoshi Land Wii U.

        • JuleyJules

          That very well could be but the point is he is made of yarn in whatever game they come out with.

    • Jimmy D. Fugate

      That was a separate Yoshi game…they are making a sequel to Yoshi’s Island for 3DS and Yarn Yoshi for Wii U.

  • DragonSilths

    1st of all E3 is over a month away not less then a month. 2nd Doubt we will see much about the Wii U Smash Bros. 3rd Starfox is Retros game so we will see it. How you could not have Retros game on the top 10 list is ridiculous. Wii Fit U is on that list though? Really? 4th we wont see the NEW Wii U Zelda. You think we will see 3 Zeldas at E3? Lol no. Windwaker and the 3DS one are the 2 we will see. 5th Its Yoshi Land U not fucking Yarn Yoshi.

  • JuleyJules

    It would be fantastic if they showed a couple of games we’ve not heard about that really show what the Wii U can do!

  • Ducked

    Super Smash Bros is my #1 I’m looking forward to.

  • MetroidZero

    Super Smash Bros. U.

    Nuff said.

  • TuckerThaTruckr

    Great list. One thing I would keep in mind is that Pikmin 3 and Game & Wario are the only games with confirmed release dates. My strategy is to hope for the best, assume the worst when it comes to Nintendo release dates. I would be shocked to see Zelda Wii-U launch before 2015. That said, i am optimistic about Mario Kart dropping right before Thanksgiving this year & SSBU taking that slot next year. Those are the tent poles, anything else is hard to predict.

  • Only a few are true gamers

    Let the games begin

  • gamesplayswill

    I hope the new Mario game will be like Super Mario 64.
    Y’know with all the interesting maps and its DIFFICULTY Nintendo did you get this?
    “DIFFICULTY”!!!!

  • TheUnBiasedGamer

    Are you kidding? Monolith’s X, Retro Studio’s project, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? Somehow Wii Fit U beats that?

  • LopsidedPasta

    The top 7 on this list are the only ones that interest me. C’mon Nintendo, don’t mess up another e3

  • thedeciderU

    the photos are creepy as hell

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Sony and Microsoft will steal the show this year, no doubt. The Nintendo train has left this time, and it wont come back this console generation. What you will see is an even bigger focus on 3ds as this is where they will bet their money in the future. They gave up on the Wii U a long time ago.

    • jacob

      hey sony fag did you know time to go back your mom fat ass creep

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Did I hurt your feelings by having a different view on the world? Sorry to hear that you cannot stand other peoples opinions. But you have to learn this eventually. Welcome to the real world <3

        • jacob

          watch you sony is go fail which ps4 is go to the most and nintendo is the king games they don t give a crap about competition with sony or xbox my bodey is ready

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s easy to detect a fanboy when they type so horrid.

          • jacob

            good one

    • Only a few are true gamers

      EAT SHIT!

    • DragonSilths

      Sony will build excitement then kill it when they announce the PS4 price. It wont be cheaper then $599.99. Then Microsoft wont get much of anything with the Xbox 720. Without a Halo game at launch nobody will upgrade from their 360.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        This might actually be a good point. However it is not sure the gamers will turn to a Wii U because of pricy ps4 and xbox720. Its simply not superior enough compared to the consoles THIS generation.

        But you are right, we will see at E3. Me myself doesnt think Nintendo will stand a chance this gen. They where simply too slow and dropped the ball too many times. Who will sell their consoles for example? Retailers give away their Wii Us just to clear their shelves for other products. It doesnt seem like they having thrust in the console either. They will probably keep on dominating with their handheld products until mobile gaming hits of for serious. Then there will not be a place for Nintendo in the hardware market anymore. This generation Nintendo focusing on the THIRD financial year to release their software. Compared to Wii U that is halfway into its life cycle. By then they MIGHT have sold the amount of consoles they thought they would sell during its first financial report (5.5 mill). You have to admit that it sounds bad? Wii, that where a fairly good selling console almost quit to make software for it the last years of its life span.

        The funny thing with Nintendo news is that some of its fans seems not to read them because it doesnt tell them what they want to hear.

        • DragonSilths

          Who will sell their systems? Because they try to help Nintendo by getting systems put there that’s bad? Lol no. Gamstop will not like Xbox 720 because of no used or Xbox 360 games working on it. Nintendo and Sony will let Gamestop thrive off used games still. Nintendo will never ever for the rest of time go software only. Nintendo is successful that’s fact. Sure not currently as successful as the Wii at launch butbut anyone who thought it would replicate that is an idiot. Nintendo is in a perfectly fine place. Sony is the only one who will fade away.

    Retro #1

  • Aiddon

    Just the new Mario and Mario Kart would suffice. SSB, Zelda, and Pikmin are just icing on the cake. I just hope people don’t whine and moan like they did last year if things aren’t 100% like their expectations

  • Michael

    Monolith’s X, enough said.

  • Luke Wilson

    ummm why is Bayonetta 2 number 9?

  • ABEzilla116

    10. Pokemon Rumble U
    9. Yarn Yoshi
    8. Pikmin 3
    7. Mario U
    6. mario kart U
    5. New Zelda
    4. Monolith’s X
    3. Bayonetta 2
    2. Retro’s game
    1. Smash Bros. 4

    • sdmac200600

      my exact list.

    • Ugslick

      Im hoping Retros is a new FPS/TPS Starfox that is as good as Halo, but in the Starfox universe. I would love that.

      • Smashninja22

        as good as halo -_- that’s not something hard for them to beat at least say Bioshock

        • Ugslick

          I meant in terms of multiplayer content and online infrastructure. Bioshock has story.

  • Alienfish

    Nintendo looks to be distancing themselves from all the casual titles they produced for Wii, otherwise Wii Fit U would have been out last month or earlier. Get ready for a return to form.

  • Justin Gray

    9 out of 10 of these listed here are 1st party titles. I am hoping we see Xenoblade or Fire Emblem this year.

  • Johny

    nintendo would blow us all off… (and sadly also go back on their words) if they announce the new kid icarus for wii u :D oh god i want it wo much x) …
    also im in suspense for No more heroes 3 :D

  • THIZZLER209

    lol those pictures are fuck af!

    Another zelda was done in 1995 and it was a sequel to link to the past

  • uPadWatcher

    My hype meter is already on CRITICAL MASS. X, Bayonetta 2, Wii Fit U, Mario Kart U, a new 3D Mario game, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Zelda: Wind Waker U, Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem, Retro Studios’ graphics engine, and a new Zelda game. This June is gonna be more explosive than dropping an A-Bomb for Nintendo.

    • dubYA

      As a Japanese company, the folks at Nintendo would probably take offense at that last remark. :P

    • DragonSilths

      There’s still no proof Retro made an Engine. We know they have a mystery Wii U game aka Starfox. But the Engine is a complete rumor. Though if its true it will be the best Engine on the Wii U.

      • uPadWatcher

        Retro Studios isn’t making Star Fox.

        • DragonSilths

          Oh yes they are. As I have said countless times I have a scary ability to call these types of things. I called Donkey Kong Country Returns being made by them 2 years before it was revealed. As well as countless other things. I have a sixth sense for these things. I bet my life and families life as well as my 17 years as a gamer that once again I will be right.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Unless your “scary ability” can see into Retro Studio’s offices, then you’re just taking a wild guess. I guess you’re gonna lose your life and family it looks like. Also, your years as a gamer doesn’t give you any credibility, lol. I’ve been one for over 20 years and I never make such comments cause it’s only a guess and not at all a fact. Unless you’re joking, don’t quit your day job.

          • DragonSilths

            I take it you don’t believe in special things like ghosts or phsychics and such. Just cause I have guessed things over and over and over again and you haven’t doesn’t mean you shouldn’t believe in such crazyness. The world is full of crazy shit. You can be more open minded and accept that there are things that just cannot be explained in this world or you can wait and be proven later that I was right again. Maybe I just have ridiculas luck in life…who knows. I don’t question my guesses. Maybe I just ask myself if I was Retro what would I do or Nintendo then I get it right. Regardless this is a long enough message to have typed up on my phone.

  • ChargedShot00

    My Top 10 Wii U Games!

  • crocodileman94

    And it’s because of games like these that I’ve never been worried about the future of the Wii U.

  • Adam Porter

    i’d just like to warn anyone expecting to see zelda U footage, don’t hold your breath. they won’t show off 2 new zelda games for the same console at the same time, no way.

  • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

    And the biggest surprises from the Wii U Direct are nowhere to be seen. And come on, Mario U and Mario Kart U don’t count, they’re on every Nintendo system. I mean the “THAT’S A THING!!!” games like Monolithsoft’s new game and Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. Okay, fine, I’ll give you Yoshi’s Yarn, but come on

  • Jimmy D. Fugate

    I expect to see some third party games at E3 too: the next Call of Duty, ZombiU 2, Ubisoft’s unnamed “full physics” project, the survival horror that Climax Studios is working on, Retro’s new project and GTA V.

  • Alvaro Castañeda

    I which Nintendo is also working on games from eShop, like n64 games and gamecube games!!

  • Martin Kearney

    I’ve been waiting for 1 full year to hear Retros’ new project. I want that to be either the first or last thing I want them to show off.

  • http://clanzs.wix.com/zodiacslayers Stenaven

    So much trains.

  • diqus sucks

    i really want another prime game. i found a love for Metroid a couple years ago but i couldn’t get my fix with the 3 Prime games lol

  • error

    RC Pro AM U. Dungeons and Dragons Wii U. Rygar U. Luke’ s Landspeeder Wii U.

  • iPedro1000

    While the original balance board will work, I wonder if Nintendo will introduce a redesigned balance board for the WiiU. Technology has come along in the last 6 years. A slimmer design with improved sensors would be great.

  • http://www.facebook.com/taldobu Bruno Poeys Lacerda

    OK, they’ve never mentioned anything about a new Zelda being shown at E3. Other than that, I expect Metroid. I mean, it’s been several months since Wii U is already out and where are the 1st party games?

    • http://www.facebook.com/taldobu Bruno Poeys Lacerda

      I want a Wii U, but I’m not buying one until there are some major games out there. I’m probably buying one the day the Zelda WW HD comes out, though

  • http://www.facebook.com/josh.dhp.3 Josh Dhp

    haha nintendo dominates again luv jlink

  • Guhtere

    Were you guys high when you made those pictures?

  • Sdudyoy

    I’m staying away from that creepy hype train.

  • Anon Ymous

    Decent list but a few gripes. These are all games we know the name of. It’s very possible that they’ll announce some of those games you don’t expect.

    As for Zelda WiiU… I highly doubt we’ll see it, sorry. That game is at LEAST 2 years from release

    • DragonSilths

      The NEW Wii U Zelda game will be next year with the Wii U Smash Bros. Nintendo has been making the Zelda game since the Wii U had a working prototype.

      • Adam Porter

        it’s all well and good thinking that but nintendo won’t show all their cards so soon, they will be hoping zelda U will carry the consoles sales on until it’s lifespan is over, which will be six or 7 years, i’d say it will be holidays 2015 before we see the new game. wind waker HD’s only reason to exist is to tide us over until then.

        • DragonSilths

          With Windwaker Reborn (WiiU), Ocracle of Ages/Seasons (Wii U VC), and he NEW 3DS Zelda game thats more then enough Zelda to tide us over for 1 year lol.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    The only upcoming Wii U game I want to see is Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. Dragon Quest X won’t come out in America and the new Zelda won’t be done until late 2014.

    • The Clockwork Being

      What about Miyamoto’s new Ip for Nintendo? Retro’s Project? Monolith’s X game? But yeah I want to see SMT x FE too

      • sakusakusakura_nyo

        I’m worried Miyamoto’s new IP is just something like Wii Music again. Retro might be working on a Metriod Prime game but the last Metroid for Wii really hurt the series. Monolith’s X game looks cool but it might not even get localized.

        • Julio

          Monolith soft X will get localized since they shown the game in the American nintendo direct.

          • sakusakusakura_nyo

            That’s good. The Wii U can’t afford to leave any rpgs in Japan at this point. I’m still not sure why they’re ignoring Dragon Quest X though.

        • DragonSilths

          Miyamoto is a human so he made 1 mistake boo hoo. And while this is a tender topic, I felt Other M was a great Metroid game. Not as good as the Primes but still a great game.

  • Haize

    E3 is more than a month away…it isn’t until June 10th and it’s still April.

    So… i waiting for: Super MeatBoy, Duck Tales, another Mario 2D, and another great 2D/2.5D platformers (like Braid, Limbo, Dustforce, Giana Sisters:Twisted Dreams, BEEP, etc.). Yes, that’s my dreams…

  • WarioForever

    I hope Retro is working on a new Star Fox game… THEY MUST DO IT!

    • DragonSilths

      No worries.

  • miigamerz

    where is monolith’s X? Replace yoshi’s yarn with X and we would have identical lists. Great Job. mii-gamer.com

    • Hamzilla22

      nah replace monolith X with Wii fitt U. Yoshi’s Yarn is worth the excitement

      • miigamerz

        im gettng a little fat, so i need wii fit

  • jjmesa14

    My list looks like this. I’m impartial to 8-10 as I am not very excited about these games. One if the games that I am most excited to see is Pokemon X and Y. That would probably take over Mario Kart at #4 if this wasn’t a Wii U list.

    1. 3D Mario
    2. Super Smash Bros.
    3. New Zelda
    4. Mario Kart
    5. Zelda Wind Waker HD
    6. Yarn Yoshi
    7. Pikmin 3
    8. Pokemon Rumble
    9. Bayonetta 2
    10. Wii Fit U

    My list would be:

    1. Zelda U
    2. “X”
    3. Smash Bros U
    4. 3D Super Mario
    5. Bayonetta 2
    6. Mario Kart U
    7. The Wonderful 101
    8. TLoZ: Wind Waker HD
    9. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
    10. Yarn Yoshi

    I’d rank Retro’s project up there but we still don’t know what it is.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004916441403 Jorge Aguirre

    Wait, you guys don’t expect to see Metroid being announced this E3? Retro Studios were preparing to give an announcement at last years E3 (2012) which they canceled due to the fact that they didn’t have enough media accumulated to proceed. I think because of that they’ve had an extra year to prepare and we have a higher chance of seeing them complete their project this year, even though you don’t expect them to.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004916441403 Jorge Aguirre

    Maybe they should make Super Mario Strikers for the Wii U.

  • Dylan

    I don’t think it’s extreamly unlikely that we’ll see the next Zelda game for the Wii U this year—even in teaser form. They said outright that it will be a long time, and the fact they are even giving us the Wind Waker remake (a whole fully featured game) specifically to bide the time between now and the next Zelda game, stresses that fact even further. I VERY highly doubt we will see the game before the Wind Waker remake is released. And a 2014 release date is wishfull thinking. I think 2015 or 2016 are more likely considering how long it generally takes Nintendo to make Zelda games.

    I think whatever Retro’s next game is has a much better shot at being revealed and released (relatively) soon.

  • Dáibhí wotshissurname

    I agree with this list, loving the thumbnail.

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    for sure 10 first party + the third party games and! also they allways tell us they teamed with some one in each e3, i mean it has been from Disney/universal/Ubisoft/recently EA / what next?!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rgodinez11 Roberto Godinez

    How about ‘X’ from Monolithsoft!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rgodinez11 Roberto Godinez

    And any surprise third party exclusives.

  • MujuraNoKamen

    good list but those are all games we’ve already seen, or in Zelda’s case we know its coming even if it hasn’t been revealed yet.
    How about a list of games that we aren’t sure about yet for example Retro’s project (Metroid or Starfox – please be Metroid) I’d also like to see Eternal Darkness 2 at E3, that gamecube classic is crying out for a sequel. A new IP would be fantastic too.
    Have I missed any other games you guys would like to see?

    Nintendo need to stop with the pokemon battle games on consoles, just give us a pokemon game just like the one on handhelds… in HD it would bring all the handheld fans to the console… to be real kno one that plays the handhelds play the battle game, it just not as fun after catchin’em and level ups… the console games be just boring… i love nintendo but that just keeping it real, if you play handheld pokemon please tell them that you all agree…

  • Only a few are true gamers

    LICK AN ASS!

  • Magnus Eriksson

    The thing is I have both the Wii and Wii U. But realistically the Wii U did probably not hit the spot this time, and Nintendo had their chance but dropped the ball just to many times with their new console. They had a lot of tme since Skyward Sword to develope a shitload of good games. They didnt do this. Instead they tried to sell the console by focusing on the pad alone (yes, ok, some features were shown with Nintendoland).

  • fireheartis1

    Dude the first Wii U’s were for the test market. You know the early adopters like me and you. They haven’t given up on the Wii U at all. Mr. Miyamoto has already stated that their goal was to improve the Wii U over all. That means us early adopters have only seen the beginning of what Nintendo has planned out for Wii U. This pretty much happened with PS3 and 360 as well. Both consoles didn’t start seeing major sales until a year after they launched. This will happen with the Wii U as well. All the above games have been confirmed to be showcased at E3 that means there is also more to be announced for the system. It’s funny how people quickly forget history and assume the worst for a new console. The PS3 was all doom and gloom as well, but guess what it started to make sells and people started to buy it. Sure it took 3 years for this to happen but heck at least Sony got out of the doom and gloom scenario. Just wait for E3 and stop using fuzzy logic. Heck to even say Nintendo Wii U wont fail is fuzzy logic that’s why I’m kicking back enjoying the console and not making any kind of predictions of my own man.

  • David

    Name some “good” games on your Microsoft and Sony conslow.

  • Joel

    Ratchet & Clank, Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper, Uncharted, Killzone, Resistance, Little Big Planet, a shit ton more, and just about all third-party games.

  • David

    Lul, so you claim that list of generic; bland, repetitive, dull games are “good”? You have no taste in games. I’d rather play Mine Sweeper on my PC than any of those shitty bucket of fails you call “games”.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Wait for the E3 2011, 2012 or 2013? Maybe E3 2014 will be the year of Nintendo? Nintendo had their chance TWICE but blew it BOTH of the times. It lost its little hype, no one is simply interested anymore. To compare it with PS3 is just crazy… PS3 kept the place as the most powerful machine this generation. And it could use this. What will Nintendo use? Low price? The old consoles from Sony and Microsoft will be even cheaper, and qualitativly no less good. It will have FAR more titlles than Wii U will ever have.

  • DragonSilths

    While the Xbox and PS3 will have a bigger library of games then the Wii U you fail to see 1 factor. The saying Quality>Quantity. Nintendo is all about Quality. Wii U will have more QUALITY games then Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and Xbox 720 COMBINED. I cant even think of more then 3 games on the PS3 that interest me. The only one that comes to mind is the Tales game on the PS3. What was it Xilla? And the Xbox is all about Multiplats. All it has thats exclusives that I give a damn about is Halo…well was. 343i fucking crippled Halo. Campaign was done well in Halo 4 but otherwise its shit.
