Iwata promises more unannounced Wii U games by 2014

Wii U Games 2014
We have to admit, Nintendo’s Wii U E3 lineup wasn’t as great as we expected. Nintendo previously promised over 10 new games at E3, but we didn’t see that many. And that may have been intentional, according to The Glorious Leader Of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata.

In a new statement to investors, Iwata says that Nintendo didn’t want to show off too many Wii U games at E3, as that would have made things too crowded. But he assures Wii U owners that there are more unannounced Wii U games that will be released by 2014.

Iwata also reasons this by saying that they didn’t want to reveal everything as not to “allow our competitors to copy”. Here’s his answer to investors regarding new Wii U games:

“There are more unannounced Wii U titles coming by 2014. There was more info than could be released at E3. Wanted to ease owners’ fears. Don’t want to leave a long gap between announcement/release of new game types that would lessen the impact or allow competitors to copy.”

The last part makes a lot of sense — no point in announcing a game today that’ll be released a year from now (although many developers/publishers do this to build “hype” for their game).

Nintendo has several key Wii U games scheduled for release, including Pikmin 3 later this Summer, Wind Waker HD this Fall, and Super Mairo 3D World in December. Then early next year, we’re getting Mario Kart 8. In 2014, Nintendo also plans to release highly anticipated games such as Super Smash Bros U and Bayonetta 2.

But Nintendo still needs the support from third parries, and they need to move more Wii U consoles over the store counters in order to attract more publishers to the platform.

    bring out the happy snacks!!!!

  • Robert

    Super Mairo 3D World :)

  • Justin Lee

    agree 100%. I rather not know and wait a few months than know and wait for a year.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Yeah, so now when Nintendo obviously failed, which console will you shift to? XBox or Playstation?

      • Silent

        Im going to keep it short: You are shit to say that ANY company fails.

        • Nintedward

          I’m going to keep it even shorter : This ^

          (@ Iwata – You go girl! )
          (@ Magnus – how about shifting to the idea of having more than one platform regardless of which one you like the most? )

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Mobile gaming for you then? Ill bet you will see Mario there in a year or two. :)

          • Nintedward

            Nope , you never will. I bet Nintendo’s next handheld will have full on smart phone capabities as well as being a true handheld with buttons , physical game input and more.

            If you’re gunna be like that then

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            A lot of wishful thinking huh? While I don’t agree that mobile gaming in Nintendo’s future, I find it funny that people like Magnus can rile up people quite easily.

          • Nintedward

            Logical thinking more like. I bet you my cat the next Nintendo handheld is as I described. Everyone in Japan will have an all in one device with their beloved Nintendo franchises. And it will also do well in the west. Calling it now.

            Advert 4 years from now ”Girl is playing Next gen Nintendo handheld and answers a call” SOLD!!!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well hello Kitty, you have a new daddy now. Thank you for the donation. :)

            Logical? Hmmm….I think that’s stil wishful thinking. Unless Nintendo confirms this, it’s only wishful thinking. Call it if you like. I don’t do predictions. I live what is right now, not fairy tales. Unless they come true, they’re just nothing but hope.

            Handhelds I don’t really care about much and never have. To each their own on that one.

          • Marcell Wade

            I agree, Nintendo most likely will stick with dedicated gaming devices for years to come, and I’m ok with that, I’m just old fashion I guess.

          • Forbsz

            I would say your right but Nintendo are about gaming and I just don’t think that would seem right to them I think it will be like every other handheld we have had in the past no mobile……

          • Nintedward

            Not every other handheld , remember the Ngage ? lol.

            Nintendo could make it work with the sheer power of their franchises. An all in one portable that has pokemon , Mario and more.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You’d fit right into Kirby’s Dreamland.

          • Nintedward

            Make sure you leave me a message in 4 years when I’m right…. again…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Don’t worry, I will send it when you’re completely way off and finally woken up from your dream. Would you like me to send it to the Mushroom Kingdom, or use a P.O. box?

          • Nintedward

            Just send it to my email @ OfcourseIwasright,idiot@hotmail.com

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Isn’t your email Imobviouslyafanboy@mushroomkingdom.com? Cause you know, the fact that you have Nintendo in your user name and have Reggie Fils-Aime as your avatar pic, it sums up that you’re obviously a die hard balls to the wall fanboy who can’t accept criticism and thinks that he’s obviously right about everything apparently. Predictions are predictions, whether you’re right or not has no relevance, as many have predicted the same thing I’m quite sure.

            I may be an asshole sometimes, but at least I know what is in front of me, and that is Nintendo sticking to their same ways and never evolving with the industry rather than hiding in their turtle shell wth the rest of the Mario crew.

            Even I hate Microsoft, but I’d say at least they have balls to try something new, and that includes Sony. When Nintendo decides to take a risk for once, email me at thetruthhurts@knowledge.com. That is all.

          • Nintedward

            You are an Ahole. Good day to you.

            I quite often criticize Nintendo where they need to be criticized and my name and Avatar is used purely for a humerus purpose,obviously…

            When i’m right leave me that email mate , cheers.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Call me what you like, no skin off my back. Email me when you’re wrong. Also, you’re the ahole who started the name calling, so let’s not split hairs here. Good day to you. Next time, try to leave the name calling out and we can all play nice, even with sarcasm. :)

          • Forbsz

            Remember the phone from pokemon diamond and pearl imagine that on the next pokemon after x and y on the next handheld but you can actually call your real friends who are also in game!

          • The True Gamer

            That seems a little stereotypical of you, claiming that everybody in Japan loves Nintendo so much they would all buy one device.

          • Akatosh

            To be fair, most of us have been reading troll comments all over this site and will snap eventually.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            What wen’t on a few days ago is old news. As for the people snapping at trolls. That doesn’t justify their actions for blindly attacking anyone that has a different opinion. Most of them don’t even really read the whole comment, just part of it or once come across something that’s negative and go AWOL over it.

            I apologized to Nintedward and vice versa. I’ve moved on, however, there will be some here who will act rash and will defend their Nintendo fandom no matter the costs.

          • The True Gamer

            Phone capabilities in a Nintendo handheld? That means it would be marketed as a smartphone. Nintendo wouldn’t release a smart phone. Competition with iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and With HP making smart phones again, they wouldn’t even be a handheld game company in any sense, just another company trying to cash in on a mobile gaming craze.

          • Andreas Sunde

            Sony already tried a dedicated gaming smartphone. Didn’t work very well.

          • KnowledgeIsPower

            Seeing as Nintendo was so successful with the DS, so successful with the Wii and currently finding great success with the 3DS I highly doubt they will be going out of business anytime soon. Remember, knowledge is power.

          • Marcell Wade

            Nice, lol.

          • The True Gamer

            I would be happy if Pokemon games were for iOS. That would be perfect…

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Relax madam, i didnt mean to hurt your feelings. Nintendo will still publish their games on next generation consoles.

          • Joey Perez

            nintendo would have a system do poorly …before it jumped ship to sell its internal ips to other consoles…. your a clown.. they dont do good this six yrs then the next gen they will be the last ones to announce their console and out do the other two.
            fact..
            xbox was the least selling out of
            ps2
            game cube
            pc…. still here..

            fact
            ps3 was the least selling out of
            wii

            xbox 360
            pc. still here

            fact
            wii u has still sold more than both
            xbox 360 and ps3 did in the same amount of time they were released …
            which would conclude
            you dont know anything what so ever …

          • Tecpedz94

            Stop replying to him hes doing it on purpose to push everyone’s buttons and you are all eatign it up…. He wont go away if we dont stop replying…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I wont go away anyway. Im here to stay. :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            He is a clown and he knows it. That’s why he keeps it up, cause you respond and give him lolz. Even I find him funny at least and is amusing.

          • Forbsz

            You just proved his point fanboys mad…..

          • Joey Perez

            no body is mad.. . facts are facts. just because i point them out doesnt mean im mad.

          • Chris Hamilton

            maybe you should check your facts before you call them facts
            1st off the ps3 has now sold more than the xbox360(this happened recently so you are forgiven)
            2nd your “fact” about the wiiu selling better than ps3/360 in the same time frame is wrong(by this time in the ps3’s cycle they sold 4.3 million where as the wiiu sits at about 3.2 million, and the xb360 sold 5 million)
            3rd even your first “fact” is wrong as the xb slightly outsold the game cube

          • Joey Perez

            its past the 4 month mark.. so to date you may be correct?? if so cool beans but the fact is the wii u is not selling horribly its fine… and will only sell more units with more of its own ip being put out.. soo nintendo has not and will not fail …

            but i have not seen any recent sales numbers given elsewhere.

            where did you get your info?
            and your not jesus so i need not your forgiveness. but thanks for gesture.

            http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/446576/20130315/wii-u-sales-outperform-playstation-3-xbox.htm#

          • Chris Hamilton

            ps3/360 and wiiu all had november launches so just look at the numbers at the date june 30
            http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_3
            http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/Xbox_360
            the wiiu’s numbers started strong compared to ps360 but ps360 started selling more and more units every month, where as the wiiu’s numbers have totally dried up(even the vita is outselling the wiiu these days)

          • Adam Porter

            nintendo games would have to on other platforms before I would buy a ps4 or xbox1

          • Silent

            Name calling wont change that you are still just person. Anything you say or do wont really change Nintendo or any videogame company.

            In summation: You are still shit for trolling on videogaming.

      • Nintendude

        You are contributing to the annoying atmosphere that this site sometimes has. Please leave.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          No, thanks. Ill stay :)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            :D

          • Michael Nillo

            I’d hate to stoop down to your level, but dude, roaches are less irritating than you -.-

            Seriously man, grow up, because all I see here nowadays are people like you trying to piss people off when all they want to do is check up on news.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yes, Ill see. Well, no I wont. Ill stay here. Bt you could leave the page if you have such a big problem with me. :)

          • Michael Nillo

            How about you leave? :)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            How about you read a book about anger management? NO, ILL STAY. :)

          • JoshMotherfuckingKing

            Go play with you Shtbox or Gaystation. you dont deserve to play any Nintendo games like Zelda or Metroid. :) You can stick your Microshit in you ass.
            Microshit fangays…….

            “Don’t argue with idiots they will drag you down to their level and beat you with their experience.”

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah, that guy “joshmotherfuckingking” is surely a non-idiot. He write so intellectual stuff… And a very non-idiotic nickname too.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            The famous analyst Michael Pachter showed that all that happened to the Wii U would happen. He predicted that Nintendo would stop making mediocre hardware and instead focus on making games for mobile phones. Maybe that could be something for the fans? New Super Mario Mobile. Sounds great, huh? :)

          • Andreas Sunde

            Pachter is the next Nostradamus.

          • Mariokartfann

            One thing I like about this man, despite the hate he likes himself. Now though, he SHOULD leave…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            or should he stay? yes he should. :)

          • Mariokartfann

            Sounds like somebody has seen the light…

            Of nothingness

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Deep, you must be a philosopher. Probably a famous one too. :)

          • Guest

            Even though I don’t support trolling, you did give me a good laugh.

          • Rickem

            How are you doing?

          • Forbsz

            Hahaha it’s so great you have just proved that fanboys get so mad oh the irony people are replying to you downvoting you getting so pissed thank you for making my afternoon! hahaha.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          It’s only annoying if you allow it to be.

        • Clel

          I think it’s fun–but maybe that’s just because I know that he’s actually a die-hard Nintendo fan who’s been with them since the beginning.

      • Andreas Sunde

        Just wondering, how do you decide when to troll, and when to be serious? Does it depend on the mood, or the article?

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Nah, it depends on the reactions. :)

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I think he does it when people get bent out of shape when he has an opinion that most fanboys seem to hate often. They rage at him, he keeps it up cause he obviously enjoys it or has some amusement out of it. Even I find it amusing cause it’s amazing how people get so upset over games.

          I stay away from it pretty much, but then again, Magnus does a good enough job that others don’t really need to.

      • Joey Perez

        your either a kid or unfortunately an un educated adult … they have never failed and in fact make more money than all consoles …. remember when nintendo publishes a game it
        1. sells its hardware….
        2. developes internally meaning they do not pay some company to create an ip they have to pay for…
        so when halo sells alot or uncharted sells a lot … sony nor microsoft get full compensation only a fraction … where as when a mario, zelda smash bros , metroid, kirby, star fox, kid icarus, donkey kong, pikimin, mario kart, wario, luigi, wii fit, animal crossing,pokemon… (and thats not even all of them.).. SELLS they get full profit.. and unless you live under a rock every one of those ip’s does great! they have the creative teams to keep their fans happy.. and playing first person shooter games does get boring…. nintendo will sell amazing maybe not as much as the original wii but at least better than what the ps3 did.. and thats all profit for them… educate yourself before speaking in this forum … troll.
        and i would like to note nintendo will not be the hardcore console in most homes it will be the secondary .. so this sets up nintendo to outsell both big companies in the long run..as people will likely get their ps3 or one … then choose the wii u .. as it will more than likely drop in price by the holiday so yep … you fail.. not nintendo.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Very difficult to read. Its so intellectual. Im not capable…

          • Joey Perez

            :) ha ha … so is your humor
            good job <— non sarcastically

          • JoshMotherfuckingKing

            Magnus, stay in your fucking cave.

        • JoshMotherfuckingKing

          Nintendo will have a great future and great fans!

      • Norfair20X5

        Oh Magnus, so few people get your sarcastic trolling.

      • The True Gamer

        Me personally? I never would buy only a Nintendo console. Sure, Nintendo had great games a few years back, but now Microsoft and Sony have game consoles in the conventional sense, and Nintendo is more like the Ouya ( that’s not an insult on Nintendo, its just to say the Wii U isn’t powerful enough to compete to be a gamers only machine once third parties develop for game consoles with MUCH more RAM.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Funny thing… I wrote:

      “Yeah, so now when Nintendo obviously failed, which console will you shift to? XBox or Playstation?”

      I got:

      “you are shit”, “fuck off”, “fangay”, “stupid”, “retard”, “uneducated kid” and so on.

      The truth is, and I said it before, I have a Wii U and I like it a lot. But djiiiiizes, some of you guys are so much fanboys that you loose contact with reality. I think these reactions are funny and I dont take it hard at all. On the contrary, I love to make them keep coming.

      Thats it. Wish everyone a good weekend. :)

      • Matthew

        So, let me get this straight, you like the Wii U and you post on Wii U site about something you believe is against the company’s fans opinion, and you don’t mind hatred? What?

        Maybe you should keep your comments to your self. I say this in a polite manner.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          No, I like to do this so I stay and Ill keep on making comments. The other people here must simply go to their psychiatrists taking anger management class :)

          • Matthew

            Really? Really?
            You drive people angry for enjoyment!?
            (Pikmin swarm Magnus Eriksson)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            No, not only. If I make people happy Ill enjoy that too. Actually even more. :)

          • Matthew

            For that,the Waddle Dee army salutes you.

          • 210stuna

            You’re so good Magnus, I replied to your comment twice without even knowing!

            Oh el oh el on me.

          • Andreas Sunde

            Getting swarmed by angry Pikmin is one of the worst things imaginable. Are you really sure you want to do this?

          • Matthew

            After hearing the stuff I heard, I think he is a pretty good guy. So, no, I won’t swarm with my pikmin.

            “WHHHHEEEEE!!!!!! WHHHEEEEE!!!!!”

          • gamesplayswill

            You’ve had your fun mate, I suggest you stop.

            (Up vote this if you think he should)

        • Clel

          Yes, he does. Some people are capable of praising something or an attribute of something by insulting it. For example, I might look at David (the statue) and say, “Berk, that thing looks like it was built by a little kid!” But the person I’m saying this to knows that I have previously expressed my great enthusiasm for the work of art and have dreamed about it for ages.

          Similarly to how we can insult something by saying something nice about it. For example, you show up in a nice suit, worked hard to make sure you look good. Then I say, in an overwhelmingly sarcastic voice, “Oh, you look soooo amazing”. Then storm off.

          So I believe sarcasm can serve different purposes.

          Cheers!
          Clel

          • Matthew

            Man, that is one very good ability.

        • Gustaf Jansson

          I think it kind of clear.. Magnus say the truth and he thinks its pretty funny that people react like they does over a console :P But I dont know.. I think the Xbone and Wii U are on the same level. That was what my poll said, PS4 kicks as thou.

        • Guest

          What does it matter what his reasoning is? His rights are protected under the 1st amendment (assuming he is from the US)…. Even fans can turn on Nintendo. It really depends on how well Nintendo meets the demands of the people and not themselves.

      • Mariokartfann

        What else do you expect? People to follow you and admire you for a comment you posted hating on Nintendo? And you try hard enough to look normal on a Nintendo site anyways…

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Yes, a little bit worship wouldnt be wrong. As a gesture of appreciation Ill give you new names. Ill find a special name for a special kid like you. :)

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        While I’m not into trolling. You do make a good point. That die hard fanboys lose it when you talk about their favorite company as if it’s bad to have a different opinion. Even when you’re obviously trolling or being sarcastic. I see the humor and I find it amusing.

        • KnowledgeIsPower

          It is worst when you are being truthful. I made a comment that microsoft had a much better E3 show than sony and the downvotes started adding up. I also made a comment that mario kart looked better graphically than most xbox1 and ps4 games, it was the same story.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That goes for any site that covers just one console or all. The ones that cover all like IGN, they all take sides and defend their platform as if it’s a god.

            I hate fanboys on this site or any site that acts like no console developer can do no wrong, and I’m talking about the ones that have no logic at all. Yeah, I notice that I get upvoted whenever it’s something positive, and when it’s negative criticism, most of the time I get down voted, and I’d say most of them are from the ignorant fanboys who can’t handle the truth.

            One way or the other, I don’t care if they do or not, the truth is there whether they wanna accept it or not. I’m here to state my opinions and tell it like it is, not worship Nintendo like the holy grail.

          • Relick

            You are confusing truth with opinion.

            Both of those examples were your opinion.. and apparently not other peoples’ opinions.

            For example, I disagree and think the Sony conference was much better than the Microsoft conference. However, I agree that Mario Kart looks way better than the XBone or PS4 games.

          • KnowledgeIsPower

            I nearly fell asleep during sonys conference. Were it not for ubisoft saving the day with watch dogs or the last 10 mins of the conference I might have

          • Relick

            :P
            Ubisoft FTW!

          • The True Gamer

            Wow. That is true. Fanboys exist everywhere. Sony fanboys, Xbox fanboys, Nintendo fanboys. While loving a game company isn’t a bad thing, when they can make a poor decision, and their fans don’t mind the slightest, or the fanboys praise the companies every decision, theirs a problem. We’re all gamers, and arguing because of bias is one of the things that give gamers a bad name.

      • Clel

        I totally agree with you. Nintendo people are regularly complaining about “Oh, Xbox fanboys can’t learn how to shut the hell up about their piece of crap hardware, and Gaystation fangirls need to gtfo.”

        And then they’re surprised the PS and Xbox fanboys diss THEM. This goes for all three of the (bad) fanboys. They give the term fanboy a bad name :(

        • Volfos

          I take offense to the mis-attribution to the term gay. Gay can mean homosexual, camp, or flamboyant. Kirby is gay in the last two way, I main Kirby in Smash Bros and am gay in the first way.

          To be honest I associate Sony and Mircosoft with the annoying parts of hetero-normative culture.

        Ah, you’ve discovered the fun of trolling and whilst having your fun you discovered that numerous Nintendo fans can be rather fanboy-ish
        …congrats

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Yes, it came to me in a dream. So I had to put it on a test.

      • sd

        I like my wii u. But after March I ran out of reasons to play it. I really hope it succeeds.Pikmin 3 is coming, hopefully i like it. The games are coming, but is it too late. I hope not, but it could be. Time will tell. The one truth is nintendo are still making profit. Regardless of what happens they are not doomed, they could easily make another console. But hopefully not just yet.

        Fanboys are also very funny, its like all the PS4 fans touting how they have the best hardware without listening to the fact that neither that, or the x1, are released to actually test, based on final build.

        People just get blinded thats all. I think it is generally because they only have the money for one and dont wish the money to be wasted on a bad move. But all consoles have their merits. All have their faults.

      • Rickem

        Also, I find you very interesting.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Thank you. I find all this very much interesting. More than you might think.

      • Josh Gilbert

        This guy is right guys. I’m a Nintendo fan, have a Wii U and every other Nintendo system, and own a PS3 that I only use for Blurays, but I whole heartedly believe Nintendo Failed at E3. They showed nothing revolutionary from their studios, with exception of Smash, which is just a continuation of a pre-existing series. No new IPs, no hardcore games(once again aside from smash) from the company itself. Nintendo needs to innovate like I know they can…they’ve hardly done anything with the GamePad themselves outside of Nintendo Land…

        • Arthur Jarret

          Why do you only use your ps3 for blurays??? Get Castlevania: symphony of the night, Blood omen, Oddworld 1&2 and parasite eve for ps1, ni no kuni, tales of graces/xilia, 3d dot game heroes, folklore, catherine, sonic generations and darksiders for ps3 and… well, lots more examples.

          The bluray function is pretty nice too – it’s why I initially bought the ps3.
          I then used it mainly as a mp3 player… but my inner collector woke after I completed my gamecube collection.

          Only 63 ps3 titles left to go!

          • Andreas Sunde

            And more to come.
            Do you plan on buying every game available on PS3, or will you skip those also on PS4?

        • Eric Degrechie

          The only thing I was let down by was Retro Studios making another DK Country instead of Metroid. Other than that, it’s all pretty much what I expected. New 3D Mario Platformer, new Mario Kart, new Smash Bros, and new Pikmin. 3rd and 2nd party isn’t bad either. X looks amazing, Batonetta is cool and has a cult following, and Wonderful 101 seems to be a game that utilizes the gamepad.

          And as far as 3rd party support goes, the Wii U is not nearly as left behind as the Wii. Some highly anticipated games are coming out on it. Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4, Batman Arkham Origins, etc.

          It wasn’t all bad. Nintendo E3 presentations in the past few years have kinda all sucked,

      • DereX

        Welcome to the Internet Magnus Eriksson! Most of the people here haven’t even played other consoles and they only ever buy Nintendo products. I have a 3ds and a WiiU and I think that N is starting to fall behind everyone else too.

      • Arthur Jarret

        Me and 19 others approve of this comment.

        Regarding your original question: I’ll buy and play all systems… why limit my choices?

      • 210stuna

        Kids tend to play video games more often than adults do, and even with that said. Most adults don’t act as mature as they should. Regardless you get a lot of immature comments on video game sites.

        I applaud satirical posts such as the one you made in your post, and laugh in my mind at all the kiddies making such foul comments back in bad taste.

        You are my humor to this site as Daniel is to my reality.

        Never change Magnus, never change.

      • 210stuna

        Kids are more likely to play video games than adults are. Regardless someone’s age doesn’t define how mature they are, but there sure is a lot of immature comments related to video game websites such as this one.

        I however applaud satirical posts such as the one you made earlier, and that is evident in my up vote for it. Some things will never change, and blind fanboy’ism is one of them.

        You are my humor to this site as Daniel is to my reality of Nintendo, so never change Magnus, never change.

        WITH PLEASURE

    • Billy_Perry

      I personally loved their lineup of games at E3, I don’t know what people are complaining about. And if Nintendo had more games for us, which I would be very surprised if they did, why wouldn’t they show them, the whole point is that they need to be overwhelmingly good, have an overwhelming amount of titles, so that you would literally be mad to not to get a Wii U. It makes no sense.

    • Amz Strange

      Hmmmmm… Miyamoto mentioned last year that Starfox would be his No. 1 franchise to resurrect (after Pikmin, I guess) so there’s hope for that.

      F-Zero doesn’t seem too likely, judging by how often Nintendo dismisses the demands of fans for a new entry in the series, which is a shame. I’d make do with a HD remake of GX to be honest, just add online multiplayer and that’d be great! F-Zero X would also make for a great HD remake, especially with the 64DD versions extra tracks and course editor thrown in.

      Nintendo don’t seem to have any immediate plans for the next Metroid, judging by interviews with Nintendo and Retro, but I wonder if they’re bluffing? Could be possible, be a nice surprise, that’s for sure!

      Yarn Yoshi’s already been announced, so that doesn’t really count in context with the interview quote, but that’s sure to launch next year. Then there’s always Kirby, but that’s kind of a second tier franchise and would probably clash with Yarn Yoshi, so I’m not putting money on a new Kirby game for next year.

      Those three are the biggest selling franchises that are currently missing on the Wii U – unless you count Pokemon, which really should have a full home console version. Can you imagine how many Wii U’s a massive HD Pokemon game would sell?! They’re silly if they don’t. A full Animal Crossing game in HD would also be a good system seller.

      There’s always the possibility of new IP’s I suppose…

      EDIT: I forgot about Mario Party! That’s a big series, so I imagine they’ll be working on the tenth instalment.

    • TULFich

      Mario Strikers? anyone? :D actually pretty good game :3

    • BlackInferno

      idk, just having seen that we’re getting X, the obvious successor to Xenoblade, makes me happy and feel like my purchase of a Wii U was worth it, even if I do have to wait a while. I also wanna say, everyone says that game is 2014, but the trailer never had a release year in it, so for all we know it could be hitting this winter or may be as far out as 2015. I hope it’s not, but just having that game confirmed makes me happy and puts me at ease, cause now I won’t have to be “NINTENDO, MAKE A XENOBLADE SEQUEL PLEASE!!!!” every time I see them. It’s like the people waiting for Star Fox and F-Zero. Even if they had to wait a year, I’m sure they’d appreciate a new entry being confirmed, so I feel for those guys even though I’m not really into either of those franchises

    • bizzy gie

      Really. It’d agitate thd crap out of me if a Metroid was announced, but wasn’t set to release until 2015.

    • SilverDrake20

      I’d rather know only because I’m deciding whether I should buy the Wii U now or later.

  • Aleks

    Didnt want to show off too many games, because that would be too crowded !?!?!? UM…. someone needs to “crowd” your system with games, GOOD games. I hoped to NOT give hundreds of dollars to another system, but you MR.IWATA are forcing me to. Smash bros, mariokart ,Zelda(not the one i already paid u for and played years ago on GC) and Bayonetta are the big 4 i want to play. I’d like more than 4 games every 14 monthes. Seriously, why dont u hire more people?

    • TAKANYAN

      They are creating quality games for the consoles 6 year life cycle. If they hire more people and release a new game every few months or so, its quality will be gone. Quality over Quantity for game franchises like Mario.

      • Aleks

        I get it, buuut more developers does not mean a dip in quality. It could and SHOULD mean more quality more often. I meant my criticism more towards why no wii u fzero, icarus, pokemon, starfox, metroid etc etc? I dont expect all these on day1, but Come on! Updates to these twice a decade- if that? There is a huge audience with limited budgets out there. We really want nintendo quality games, but if i want to play 5 games a year i might have to go with a ps4 just for the more frequent variety.

      • oontz

        but there are more IPs than JUST Mario. IF nintendo owned more first party studios then they could bring out more IPs and faster. Win win.

    • Andreas Sunde


      These are just what has been announced so far, and yet people complain about the lack of games.

    • david jarman

      I know what you’re saying, but nintendo actually makes sense. When there are too many great game out at the same time it makes it hard for people to purchase them all and fully enjoy each one. There’s been times on the Xbox 360 that I foolishly purchased so many games at once that by the time I played half of them more were coming out. Keep in mind this was later in the consoles life. I ended up not playing them all and returning them for credit to purchase newer games that I became more interested in.
      I’m having a hard time cause I want The wonderful 101, pikmin 3, ssb, mk8, bayonetta 2, x, sonic lost worlds, Zelda ww hd and the new Zelda.

  • iceazeama

    2014…… so iwata, what about those new titles you said were unannounced for wii u and coming out this year. “please understand”.

  • Mario

    More unannounced games? Interesting…

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      They really should, Seeing as their sales haven’t really increased since their last Nintendo Direct before E3, they could use more announcements.

  • Archiq09

    This game make by nintendo will look good in HD no?

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      It wasn’t made by Nintendo, was by N-Space. Nintendo just published it. Yes, games like this would help Nintendo’s rep, even if they’re not system sellers. It would be the first step from getting out of the kiddy image.

  • David Plank

    Fingers crossed for a new Metroid game!

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Would love that too. But its not very likely. RETRO chose to work on DKCF instead, and its very unlikely that someone else got it. Until there is hrd evidence I wont put to much into this kind of talk. Without proof its just talk.

      • DragonSilths

        As soon as DKC:TF has gone gold, Retro is starting on Metroid.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Hope so. I was a bit disappointed when it wasnt announced this E3. On the other hand I love DKC too. :)

          • david jarman

            Silly man!
            Yeah, it took awhile to grow on me. After I saw more of it in higher resolutions I was like,”cool.”
            But when my wife said “cool” I was like “sweet!”

            Time to bargain.

          • NkoSekirei

            look retro did say they were still getting used to the wii u and learning out powerful the system really is before starting on a new metroid game they just want to get more time with the system so they know wat their gonna do for metroid.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Thats cool. :)

        • Amz Strange

          Lets hope so! :-) But if that is the case, I doubt it’d be ready by next year. A huge HD Metroid game would take at least 2 years to make… unless they already assigned a small team to it at Retro, to do the pre-production stuff? That’s possible! :-)

          • DragonSilths

            I never said Metroid would come out 2014. It’ll be 2015.

    • https://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

      It’s okay if it’s a Super Metroid like on 3DS.
      Let the 3DWiiU Metroid for Retro for 2015 or 2016. No more Other M please.

  • gamesplayswill

    NEW GAME LEAKED!: New Super Mario 3d World!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.

      • gamesplayswill

        This time you have a dog suit!

        me: NOOO!!!…..

        • KnowledgeIsPower

          That is what I said when I saw the cat suit. Cats are useless to say the least and we should not be glorifying them.

          • gamesplayswill

            … I disagree, I love the catsuit and I prefer cats to dogs but the reason I wouldn’t like a dog suit is because there are too many suits and power ups!

    • oontz

      ha ha ha

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    Let me guess, a million Mario games?

    • iceazeama

      no, let me correct that for you. 2!!!! million.

  • Donnie Oliver

    I swear this guy is a moron ya lets not show off our good hardware when our console ain’t selling and wait till everyone already buys a ps4 or Xbox then expect them to run out and buy a wii u right after -__- if I didn’t buy a wii u already no way would I buy one after buying a ps4 with no news of good games

  • Streakin-Cobra

    For Third Party this is where COD:Ghost, The Crew, and GTA V comes in.

    • wiiudaily

      None of which will come to the Wii U :(

      • Nintedward

        COD Ghosts is near enough confirmed! Optimism > Pessimism

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Unless it’s been confirmed, optimism doesn’t get you games.

    • NkoSekirei

      activision is laying a wait and see game if wii u sales go up we might get ghosts but nintendo does need to bring out first party games to boost its sales but i dont think its a good idea to wait for sales to go up cause the only way sales can go up is bring out more games.

    • oontz

      GTA V will not come to wiiu. But it’d be sick to at least get an HD sequel to China Town wars with full game pad support like the ds version.

  • Linskarmo

    I wonder if he meant by the beginning of 2014. I somewhat doubt that, but the wording seems to imply it. If he means by the end of next year, I hope the new Zelda is among those and will be at least teased soon.

  • Anubis

    I really want to see Zelda HD! It appears that Nintendo is working really hard on that game, and it would be great to see its unique art style :D

    • wiiudaily

      And I bet if the Wii U launched with Wind Waker HD, it would have a much better install base today.

      • XroyD

        Yeah you are right. I have never played Wind waker and I’m so excited to play it finally on HD and on Wii U

      • Anubis

        Yeah, that’s true! I wasn’t able to get the original, but I might get this one. It would definitely build up the hype.

      • Joey Perez

        thats what i said .. i remember a time when the console came with a game to show the system off not.. a shovelware title … i truly believe one the reasons the wii launched remarkably was because twighlight princess was available first day .. and the game well its amazing..

        • JB

          That was a case of timing and the stars aligning together for Nintendo. TP was a game for GCN retrofitted for the Wii (of course you knew that)… doesn’t make it any less amazing though. The Wii Sports pack-in wasn’t bad… At least Nintendo still believes with launching with a game as opposed to nothing at all. LOL

          Though I totally agree with you. Even if not a pack in, they should start having a Mario or Zelda ready at launch. I mean NSMBU was cool, but a proper (or should I say “open world”) Mario would’ve definitely moved units.

          • Joey Perez

            you are correct on it being a refitted game for wii u. be it as it may it was awesome a total 10 hmmmm..
            well yeah i mean nsmbu was just ok.. i beat it so quickly i was left wanting so much more! an open world mario to show off to friends would have made wii u fly off the shelves and we would still be talking about how great it is today. nintendo will suprise us all with the amount of units it sells and the 3rd parties who jump on board while waiting for ps4 n one to sell… they will still make games that fit the ps3 n 360 as marketplace will show many players still have them in the home and being that those games are an easy port to wii u they will become available .. we are in a weird point in gaming where money is so tight … and graphics are’nt soo important as the actual game. i will be getting a ps4 to play hardcore games that dont make it to wii u… and im waiting for microsoft to drop the price on one
            im even working on a website for gaming with a non biased approach .
            I hate no company but i hate haters .. i like good clean news and good clean winners and losers…
            i am a nintendo fan boy.. i grew up with it im 28 ! i still have my nes … and snes, gamecube, and wii, and now wii u.. and my 64… i dont have my xbox, or ps2 or ps1 simply due to the fact there is no games i want to play on those..
            and with the new virtual console i might just put my nintendo retro gear in the closet and enjoy the classics on my game pad…

          • JB

            I skipped the GCN version of TP and went straight for Wii version, but I agree, Twilight Princess is a 10. It’s my second favorite Zelda title.

            I’m with you on NSMBU being just “okay”. I didn’t fly through it only because time didn’t really permit me to, but had I sat through and committed to it, then yea, I would’ve blown through it in no time. I wouldn’t be surprised if Wii U started to pick up steam and take the charge. It’s just a matter of them releasing the big guns and communicating the strengths of the GamePad. Then there’s the whole marketing thing. Which will come now that they some decent games on the horizon that they can actually advertise. Couple that with the price advantage they have, Nintendo could easily win the holiday, or at least come in a strong second.

            Graphics have reached a plateau of some sort, it’s almost moot to compare them, I think Nintendo knows this and that’s why when they’re not talking about gameplay, they are talking about keeping the framerate at a constant 60 FPS. (which to no surprise, framerate can make a big difference in the whole experience) Indie developers have proven that graphics aren’t everything and if I were to make a prediction, I think Indie support will be one of the major deciding factors as to who will win this generation.

            You sound like me. I’m a Nintendo fan, grew up with it and still have all my various Nintendo systems, Though I hold firm to my belief of being a gamer first, loyalist second, so I’ve owned every other system as well, sans the original XBOX, So I definitely don’t hate on any one system, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t cheering for N a little louder than the competition.. but that’s because of all the wonderful experiences Nintendo has brought me over the years.

            Let me know when you get your website up and running, I’ll for sure check it out! Sorry for the long ramble. HAHA.

      • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

        Easily.. If it had a top AAA Nintendo title at launch it would have had more steady sales. Having Twilight Princess at launch with the Wii was a good system seller and then once people played it Wii Sports took it off to people with the new game play style

  • Kenshin0011

    Sure, but will they be the games we want? Will the be epic Wii U games that push the hardware to its limits, but more importantly, are massive and exciting? *cough* star fox, metroid *cough*

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Jokes aside, but I start to feel unsure that Iwata has what it takes to steer the ship. Time to step down and let someone else make a try?

    And yes, thanks to Kinsley for yet another good article.

    • Donnie Oliver

      Seriously this guy is just making nintendo look like a joke after the 3ds launch you would of think he learned but nope I think the wii u is doing so much worse. (Maybe because I waited on the 3ds till they’re was something I wanted to play) but the wii u is just doing awful and I have nothing to look forward too except smash bros and mk8

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Yes, and that those games got a release date in 2014 is not a good sign. Nintendo got a history of pushing back and have long delays before releasing. Even how you might chose to see it you still must see that Nintendo fails over and over again to see how much time they need to finish a product. And that isnt good from business perspective either way.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          True story. Yet, fanboys will defend them no matter what they do. Ignorance is bliss.

        • KnowledgeIsPower

          Everbody here needs to understand something. Making videogames is neither fun nor easy. The amount of work that is needed to make a good videogame is ridiculous to say the least.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        It’s doing a lot worse than the 3DS at this point.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Agreed. I really think the blame is on Iwata. I just don’t think he has it or ever really had it to be president. I find him to be the type that wants to do things his way whether people like it or not. Those types aren’t really good to have in power.

  • zerooooo

    Alright I “no lifed” MH3U enough I want another game to keep me occupied for smash and MK8. I hope pikmin can ease my anticipation.

  • DragonChi

    Its nice to say there will be more games in 2014. But we REALLY need more this fall and holiday season than there is, or currently know about. You need to improve your sales NOW, not later.

  • Levian VII

    I just hope these unannounced games are actually NEW games, and not just more Mario. I don’t have anything against Mario, but it just doesn’t feel as exciting as it would a new I.P. or even a classic reboot like F-Zero or Star Tropics. And some third-party exclusives would be nice.

    • Zuxs13

      New IPs or new “western style IPs”? Cause Nintendo has shown many new IPs already (or new to them that they are investing in) but none other than maybe X or Bayonetta would fit the term “western” that make most people think its new.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Well this is certainly good news. This is actually a very smart move, although it would of been nice to announce maybe a few more titles at E3 but I was happy, regardless. I wouldn’t want another Pikmin 3 incident, so it’s good that they decided not to announce TOO MANY games…just like at E3 2012…

    I hate how everyone on here is mad at Nintendo for not having any games for like, right now in 2013. First of all, do you people know how hard it is too even make a game!? It’s not exactly a walk in the park. I’ve had a small experience designing a flash game for my class, and well…it wasn’t really hard, it just took FOREVER. So people, just look at it this way, would you rather wait a year and have amazing, epic games, or do you want the games now and have them be very crappy?

        That’s probably my favorite quote of all time xD
        …well….besides the quote “get N or get out”

        • JB

          “Get N or get out” was a stroke of genius on Nintendo’s part. It’s always been my favorite slogan.

          • Mr. Hobo

            When did they first say this?

          • Marcus Henne

            I think it originated during the N64 days, if I’m not mistaken.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Your correct :)
            And may I just say that I think the ol’ N64 was Nintendo’s best console ever created! There’s not a single game that I can think of that was bad. I’m not making fun of the other Nintendo consoles, I just think that the N64 was Nintendo’s most treasured system. And the way I see it, the Wii U might be heading in that direction.

          • JB

            It was one the slogans during the N64 era. The play on words has always stuck on me as brilliant.

            My favorite has always been, “Now you’re playing with power.”

        He should tell that to every single studio that developed Duke Nukem Forever. I beg to differ on that quote.

        • david jarman

          Yeah, but with duke nukem they don’t sit in development, they just sit and then they go back to them when they have time. Not much developing going on. Lol!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Hahaha, nice one. I suppose that’s true up to an extent, but even Nintendo’s delays really need to stop as not all people feel like waiting months on top of months for one or a few games. Gamers get bored and focus their minds elsewhere.

          • david jarman

            Yeah, that is so true. I’ve been waiting forever for The wonderful 101 and pikmin 3. Sigh….it’s getting closer
            So is the new update…July

        I may be impatient at times but I will always prefer for Nintendo to take this approach. I don’t even remember the Ocarina of Time delay anymore, what I do remember is that Ocarina of Time took it’s place among the great classics of gaming.

    • oontz

      For a system that released last november, yes you should be mad there aren’t more AAA games released yet. We are 8 months in and still haven’t got pikmin 3.

      • 00EpicGamer00

        Well, sorry to dissapoint you, but I’m not. What’s the point at being “mad” at a company for trying their hardest to give us the best games they can be? Like I said before, would you rather have Pikmin like, right this minute in it’s current stage of development? I mean sure, maybe the story and all the modes might be complete but there’s probably a TON of bugs, and glitches that you couldn’t imagine!
        Now, instead of whinning like a little brat, why don’t you take the time to appreciate the lengths that Nintendo goes through to give us these amazing games. The thing I absolutely hate the most is greedy people, and you sir/ma’am are very greedy.
        Also, I’m pretty sure you can hold out 2 more months, for Pikmin :P

        • oontz

          I’m mad because they lied to the consumers. I bought the wiiu gaming console on the promise of GAMES! They have yet to come through on that promise. It has nothing to do with being greedy but everything to do with respect and Nintendo doesn’t respect their core audience. How am I being greedy when I spent my hard earned money to support their product?? Nintendo obviously rushed the release of wiiu seeing that the firmware that shipped with the systems was incomplete and also that they had no software prepared and in the pipeline ready to support the system after it’s release. I had faith in Nintendo and honored my pre-order… I am quickly losing that faith. It’s pretty sad for them, seeing as my ps3 has seen more game time in 2013 then their NEW “Next Gen” system. I am sure the same goes for almost every other wiiu owner. Being mad at a company for making empty promises has nothing to do with greed.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            “I’m mad because they lied to the consumers. I bought the wiiu gaming console on the promise of GAMES!”

            Well, unless i’ve gone insane, there are games for the Wii U. There’s many, as a matter of fact. Also, i’m pretty sure there’s enough games for the Wii U right now that can hold you off until the games we’ve all been waiting for comes out. Let’s see there’s: Assassins Creed 3, Lego City Undercover, Resident Evil: Revelations, Monster Hunter, Nintendo Land I guess, Game and Wario. Also with the fact that Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Zelda Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze are ALL coming out this year. I personally see a TON of games, do you?

            And yes, you are very greedy due to the fact that your…”mad” at Nintendo for not having ANY games on the Wii U, I think you need to get your eyes checked. And it’s also very rude of you to say “yes you should be mad”. Why should I be mad? There’s absolutely NO point of being mad, whatsoever.
            ALSO, you need to realize that ALL gaming consoles go through a “game drought” like this, I will admit that the Wii U IS taking a little longer than usual, BUT that doesn’t make me automatically hate the system.

          • oontz

            “Let’s see there’s: Assassins Creed 3, Lego City Undercover, Resident Evil: Revelations, Monster Hunter, Nintendo Land I guess, Game and Wario.”
            This is THE problem, AC3… played and beat on PS3, LC:U… lego games don’t interest me, not to mention the load times are outrageous, RE:R… didn’t enjoy it on 3ds no need to try on wiiu, MH… not my type of game, NinLand… average party game with no online multiplayer leaving me unable to even play half the mini games, G&W… 5 out of 10. None of those games are must have titles for me… NONE!

            Pikmin 3 I am looking forward to. Same as Windwaker HD. How is it rude for me to say “you should be made” but not rude of you calling me greedy for wanting more from a company I support with my money? If Nintendo would have said that no BIG games would be out for the first 8 months of the wiiu’s life then fine but they didn’t, they lied to their customers.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Resident evil: revelations is better on the Wii U because it’s not on a very tiny screen, the expierence (and graphics) are better, there’s also different difficulty modes on the Wii U version. Why did you play Assassins creed on PS3? Why didn’t you play it on Wii U? So much for supporting Wii U :/

            How is me calling you greedy rude? It’s true that you’re greedy. It’s not Nintendo’s fault that YOU don’t like any of their games. Telling me “you should be mad” is absolute BS, because you’re trying to force YOUR opinion onto me, there’s a difference between listing a fact (me) and forcing an opinion onto someone else (you.)

            Your judging games by what their rated? That’s just stupid. Just because a site raits a game a 5 doesn’t mean it’s a terrible game, it all depends on the player with what he/she likes. Ratings shouldn’t at all make you decide. So with this whole logic if Pikmin 3 were to be rated…6.5 would you play it? Probably not because you judge games by ratings from random people across the world.

            “if Nintendo would have said that no BIG games would be out for the first 8 months of the wiiu’s life then fine but they didn’t, they lied to their costumers”
            You don’t know anything about game development, do you? MANY problems can arise during development, it’s not like as soon as you think of the idea and begin working on it, you won’t have any problems, HECK NO! Also how did Nintendo lie about
            something they didn’t know at the time?

            Honestly, why did you even purchase the Wii U? You’re not supporting it at all, you hate every game for it right now, so what
            was the point? Seemed like you wasted your money something you never even wanted.

          • oontz

            “Why did you play Assassins creed on PS3? Why didn’t you play it on Wii U? So much for supporting Wii U”

            I played it on PS3 because it provided the whole experience in 3d. It also was released earlier than the wiiu version but mainly because of the 3d mode. If Ubisoft would have included 3d on the wiiu version I WOULD have bought it over the PS3 one.

            “How is me calling you greedy rude?”

            You know nothing about me, what type of person I am, what charities I support or what soup kitchens I volunteer at. Calling me greedy just because I am upset with a company who has been slacking in the game department is rude. I gave my money to them for a product and promised service… and so far they have not delivered. To me it seems they weren’t prepared in advance for the release of the wiiu. They should have had a staggered game line up so their AAA titles were coming every couple of months. They should have had software in development well in advance of the systems release, instead of having customers wait ALMOST a year. For the record I don’t and never will consider NSMBU a Nintendo AAA title. This is again the reason they need to purchase more first party studios.

            “Your judging games by what their rated? That’s just stupid. Just because a site rates a game a 5 doesn’t mean it’s a terrible game”

            You’re right, a 5 is not terrible but it’s mediocre at best. I look for the best experiences possible when gaming. For the games in the past that I have loved and have enjoyed the most… they are rated high. I play and beat on average 1 to 2 games per month. I don’t have time for mediocre experiences. I also don’t have time to demo each and every game. Over the years I have found reviewers and sites that coincide with my feelings and needs. So reviews are accurate enough for me to base my purchases on. Let me put it this way, I have never played a game rated 10 out 10 and thought it was shit!

            “You don’t know anything about game development, do you?”

            This is exactly why people shouldn’t make silly assumptions online. For all you know I work in the industry and have been for the past 17 years. I know more than you about the time constrants/delays and overall time it takes to plan, prepare, test, and produce software for mass release. Which leads back to the fact that IN MY OPINION Nintendo wasn’t prepared to launch the wiiu so early OR they put too much faith into 3rd party support which they shouldn’t have.

            “Honestly, why did you even purchase the Wii U?”

            I grew up on video games, ever since my dad brought me home an Intellevision in 1980. Nintendo was a HUGE part of my youth. I spent countless hours glued in front of the TV with a gaming controller in my hand. It shaped who I would become and also the career path I would eventually take. I fell in love with video games because of Nintendo (and sega, and all the different developers) I will always buy Nintendo systems to play THEIR games. The problem this generation is THEIR games for the most part wont be out till almost a year after the launch of the system. Also after seeing the E3 Ndirect… the direction they have chosen is not one that pleases me any more. They are playing it too safe. I (and millions of others) grew up with Nintendo and now that we’re grown adults we look for new experiences and it seems Nintendo isn’t willing to grow with us.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I’m not sure if I believe you even purchased the Wii U. I’ve seen your other posts on this page making fun of the Wii U, saying it’s underpowered, and you think the Xboxone is better than Wii U…that’s just messed up.

            How do I know you aren’t lying? You could of made up your whole “life’s story” to try and get you sympathy. And well…it didn’t work.

            Also why did you ONLY take like the first sentence of ever point in my post? You completely disregarded the other important things like my Pikmin example, if Pikmin 3 were to be rated 6.5 you wouldn’t play it, right? All because you put your entire trust into strangers ratings. what a creep you are.

            Now, will you just quit whinning already? The Wii U is great, and it’s only going to get better. I will not sit here and see you hating on it, all because you’re impatient. I got my Wii U last Christmas and I’m very happy with it. I honestly wouldn’t care if the games Nintendo just announced weren’t coming out for another 2 years. Why? Because I APPRECIATE Nintendo working on games rather than them not working on anything at all.

            Also, will you quit trying to make me mad at Nintendo!? I don’t
            want to be like you. YOU can go waste your time hating on something that Nintendo can’t really control. While I act like the mature adult here ( I’m not even an adult but whatever) and give Nintendo respect and UNDERSTANDING.

          • oontz

            “I’m not sure if I believe you even purchased the Wii U”

            Pre-ordered and purchased the Black Deluxe model on launch day.

            “you think the Xboxone is better than Wii U…that’s just messed up.”

            I think the xbox1 is MORE POWERFUL than wiiu. Not better. I personally wouldn’t touch the xbox1. I have pre-ordered a PS4 though as I love Sony exclusive titles as much as Nintendo ones.

            “How do I know you aren’t lying? You could of made up your whole “life’s story” to try and get you sympathy. And well…it didn’t work.”

            I don’t need to lie, nor do I need any sympathy from you.

            “if Pikmin 3 were to be rated 6.5 you wouldn’t play it, right?”

            I HIGHLY doubt that Pikmin 3 will receive anything less than 8 out of 10.

            “All because you put your entire trust into strangers ratings. what a creep you are.”

            Sorry I guess you think people have all the time in the world to test every product themselves. So people who research and read reviews of products are creeps? Does your insane logic only apply to videogames? Or if someone researches and reads reviews before buying a new tv, stereo, or a new car, or a house also fall into your “creep” category? Maybe you enjoy throwing money away on a whim but I and millions of other EDUCATED consumers research and read reviews about products before spending out money on them.

            “Now, will you just quit whinning already?”

            I am not whining, simply pointing out Nintendo was not prepared for the launch of this system.

            “The Wii U is great, and it’s only going to get better.”

            It will get better, in 2014

            “I got my Wii U last Christmas and I’m very happy with it.”

            Was it a gift from Mommy and Daddy? Or maybe Santa still brings you presents?

            “Also, will you quit trying to make me mad at Nintendo!?”

            I am not trying to make you made at anyone. You seem to have some personal vendetta against me calling me greedy and now a creep. You’re a very strange individual.

            “YOU can go waste your time hating on something that Nintendo can’t really control.”

            There in lies the rub. Nintendo CAN CONTROL it. They are the ONLY ONES who can control it. It’s their system and their software. If THEY would had been more prepared for the launch on the wiiu then we wouldn’t even be having this discussion right now. It’s not that hard to understand.

            “I’m not even an adult but whatever”

            This speaks volumes and puts all of your previous posts into context.

            It’s been fun. Good day sir!

          • 00EpicGamer00

            “I’m not trying to make you mad at anyone” all lies. In your first response to me you said “you SHOULD be mad” then when I responded saying “I’m not mad” you seemed to get kind of angry for no reason.

            “It will get better in 2014″ WRONG. It will get better in 2013. You seemed to of forgotten Nintendo has many games coming out THIS year.

            Look I just think it’s stupid to judge a game all because some stranger rated it. I’m not saying you should go out and buy every single game. All I’m saying is find a way to play before you buy them. Things like Gamefly, borrowing the game from someone, or watching YouTube videos, so you can see what the gameplay is like. Just so you know I have played game and wario before (certacy of gamefly) and it does sort of deserve the ratings it’s gotten.

            Also, I was just using Pikmin as an EXAMPLE. Of course it’s not going to be rated 6.5. I was just curious IF pikmin 3 were to be rated that, would you buy it? I already know “no” is the answer to that one.

            And Nintendo can’t really control the speed they work on games. Games take a VERY SLOW process. Nintendo DID NOT
            know that all their…”AAA” games wern’t coming out until 2014.
            So once again Nintendo NEVER lied, how can Nintendo lie
            about something they did not know at the time

            Now I will admit that Nintendo was too quick on releasing their console, I do agree that they should of waited.

            “This speaks volumes and puts all of you posts into contex”
            What does age have to do with intelligence and maturity? I’m 15 and I am just as mature as an adult.

            “Good day sir” Umm…I’m not “sir”.

            “Was it a gift from mommy and daddy? Or maybe Santa brings you presents” What the heck is wrong with you? I’m 15 dipshit. This right here proves you’re not an adult. Would a MATURE adult say something like that? Uh, heck no. If you’re an adult…then I have officially lost the hope of intelligence in humanity. And this proves you hate the Wii U.

      • TassosNoDensetsu

        just name me one console that had a better first year.

        its always like that, for every console release

        • oontz

          for better AAA First Party titles?

  • DragonSilths

    Yoshi Land U, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, maybe a Kirby game.

    • http://www.senran-international.boards.net/ TwinTails

      The first two were announced in January. He also mentioned more unannounced third party games will come a while back.

      • Cesar Barroso

        forget about third party games, then you will be ok with the few that will be announced.

  • David Flick

    The day they make another 3D donkey kong is the day y life will be complete

  • David Flick

    its only a matter of time until the next mario party is announced

  • Guest

    Metroid, Starfox, Doom?

    • Amz Strange

      I would seriously love to see Doom 4 on Wii U, but (outsourced, downgraded port aside) there’s not a hope in hell (pun intended) that Doom 4 will be on Wii U :-( We’re not even getting a straight port of Wolfenstien, a current gen game, let alone the graphical behemoth that Doom 4 is rumoured to be.

  • Jason Odermatt

    Get ahold of the AD&D Goldbox games, and remake for wii u would would work good.

  • XroyD

    Here are my 2014 Nintendo E3 Predictions for Wii U:

    There will be a another 3D Mario game in development (Universe or Galaxy 3)

    Metroid Prime 4 trailer will be shown (2015)

    Zelda (New one) will be shown (2015)

    X will get a release date and more gameplay

    Yarn Yoshi or whatever it’s called will get a release date and more details

    More 3rd party support

    More details about SMT X Fire Emblem

    And at the end will finish with a Star Fox trailer (teaser).

    This is just my dreams and stuff… My BODY IS READY!!!

    • JB

      That’s a great E3 lineup you have there!

      It really wouldn’t surprise me if they are already laying the ground work for the next “open world” Mario.

      I’ve always believed they’ll announce Zelda at the next E3 in grand fashion, If not that then maybe Mario. It would seem odd for them to announce two brand games from the two main Nintendo icons at the same presser.. unless they just want everybody to lose their mind.. but hey, I wouldn’t mad at them. :-)

      I LOVE Metroid, but I’m so ready for another Star Fox or F-Zero or some other seldom used IP. but once again, if they announced a new Metroid and Star Fox at the same conference, I wouldn’t be mad at them. LOL

      Hopefully, N moves enough units this holiday to win back a lot of the third party support that’s taking the “wait and see” approach.

      My mouth is watering for some new X footage. I want this game so bad!

      • Rosstifer

        Thought Miyamoto said that Zelda was nearly showed at E3, but didn’t want to take the hype away from Wind Waker. He also said he may reveal it later this year.

        • JB

          Hmmm. I must have missed that… If so, maybe we’ll get a super special Nintendo Direct for Christmas showing off Zelda. Then get a Mario for E3. (wouldn’t mind if it was sooner)

      • oontz

        But its still a year away :( I feel too little, too late… would sum that up!

        • TassosNoDensetsu

          there are so many great game on wii u right now, i sincerely do not see the problem. and with all the games coming before the end of the year, i will probably own like 20 wii u games by year ends. and all great one.

          like i said, i really do no see the problem…

    • Amz Strange

      Nice! Very plausible line-up :-) I’d guess that Galaxy 3 (or 64 2, or Sunshine 2, or whatever they call it) would be a teaser for a 2015 release? Is it the Galaxy team that are making Mario 3D World? I can’t remember…

      Definitely agree with Starfox, that’s looking quite likely :-) Maybe even a Christmas 2014 release?

      Maybe a Mario Party game, too.

      • XroyD

        yeah, I think they will do a Galaxy 3 or a 64 sequel, I really liked the idea of the paintings in 64. Probably if they make a Star fox it would be out around Christmas. Their are so many good games for 2014 that my wallet will be in pain.

        Mario Party would be good also.

      • Andreas Sunde

        The Galaxy 2 team is making 3D World. I don’t know what Galaxy 1 team has been working on since Four Swords anniversary, which came out in 2011. But there is always this:

    • awoeiudfn

      More like 2014. :P The only reason they didn’t show Zelda U was because it would destroy Wind waker HD.

    • oontz

      These are all things that should have been announced or shown this year at e3. Next june will be a bit late after millions of people have already bought a Xb1 and Ps4.

  • JB

    I was fine with the E3 announcements… There’s still plenty from Ubisoft, indies and the the few first party Nintendo titles coming this year to keep me busy well into 2014. (and that’s not even including being busy with the PS4 and XB1 if you will)

    I’m sorta excited to see what the folks at N have in store that they are keeping so close to the chest, as to not tip off the competition to copy. It must be something completely bad-ass.

  • Luke Wilson

    Honestly Im tired of all this secrecy, just come out with it and give us something to look forward too!

  • Cesar Barroso

    between the 3DS and the Wii U I have nothing to ask from Nintendo.
    You don’t have to tell me there are more unannounced games for Wii U, I already know that. Reason why I have a Wii U. Reason I bought a 3DS.

  • Nintengoth

    Cant Wait! Ninty is going to rock the next year with awesome games :P

  • Kaihaku

    It feels strange to admit but, oddly enough, I find myself hoping that Wii Sports U is one of them.

    • Mariokartfann

      Me too! But make it MUCH better than the original. They need more sports and better training activities.

    • Andreas Sunde

      How about Sports and Fit in the same game?

  • Mochlum

    Please be F-Zero or Kid Icarus!… even though Miyamoto said he doesn’t see why anyone would want an F-Zero…. and Sakurai said a new Kid Icarus isn’t gonna come for a while… (sighs)

  • Wanderlei

    Its the opposite of what Sony do, they hype games years away (GT5) or games that just become vaporware (Last Guardian, FF Versus) or games that become multiplats (every single 3rd party game that use to be sony exclsuive)

    • Andreas Sunde

      FF Versus XIII isn’t vaporware, it’s now called FF XV.

      • Wanderlei

        Bully for the chumps who bought a ps3 for versus, now its multiplat and not even on the ps3.

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    No Nintendo, you have the next-gen all to yourself till the end of this year. This is when you need to release a load of first party titles before the PS4 and X-One release so gamers aren’t tempted to buy those due to lack of Wii U titles. 2014 will be too late, the PS4 and X-One will already be out. Not saying that PS4 and X-One don’t deserve success but Nintendo really needs to pay attention to it’s competition.

  • Baconfat23

    Well that’s good. I feel like they could’ve released maybe a couple more games at E3 that we’ve heard no news prior, the only one was DK Country. Hopefully some nice games appear and hopefully for release in the earlier section of 2014, kinda do something like the Janurary Wii U Direct they did this year because after watching that I had to run to the shops a couple weeks later to buy my Wii U.

  • Nintendofreak

    read article it says stuff u never though about

    http://gimmegimmegames.com/2013/06/nintendo-makes-plenty-of-new-ips/

    • Zuxs13

      That was a good read. I think that what the author is missing is that people say there are no “new IPs ” because Nintendo doesn’t make “western ” IPs (not my view) that means the don’t make new ones. Many people I know (here in the US) are so ingrained into buying blockbuster games that Mario just doesn’t meet their “needs” and therefore games like wii fit and art academy will ever meet the “new IP” standard.

  • sslamajama97

    Here’s my dream: Nintendo announces ZeldaU in some form by the end of the year, we hear more about SMT X Fire Emblem, New 3D Mario(3D world is…meh, in my opinion, but still looks alright) like Galaxy, Sunshine, Mario 64, etc., and a bunch of other killer apps that will draw devs to the console. Right now, that’s pretty much the only thing the WiiU needs, apart from a price drop(seriously, Nintendo, $299 for the Deluxe or even a new SKU would be amazing). If they do this, then it’ll put them ahead.

  • Andrew Bland

    He does have a point though, Remember when Sony showed off FF15 and Last Guardian? FF15 had to skip a whole generation just to show us gameplay. And who knows what happened to the Last Guardian…

  • Lusunup

    Nintendo line up wasn’t great??? what the fuck no..we did not as far as im concerned all admit that it wasn’t great, it was flawless the only reason it wasn’t as shocking is because their were no surprised line up iwata had explain most of this new games through out the whole quarter of the year.

    • Zuxs13

      No it wasn’t great. Reason being there is not one big system seller coming out in 2013. Come spring next year when Mario Kart releases there will be more ps4s on the market then wiiu and that will be pathetic.

      • TassosNoDensetsu

        no system seller? i agree mario kart and smash are probably the biggest system seller, but donkey kong, mario 3D world, even wind waker, will probably sell more then most other games.

        so why are they not system seller?

        i would love to see metroid or starfox, but unfortunately, like pikmin, they are not system seller.

        • Zuxs13

          Most of the people already own the wii u will buy those games but not enough will buy the rest of those games. Mario 3d land for 3ds was only marginally successful for the 3ds and it had a larger instal base then the wii u will have when the new one comes out.
          I think all of these games combined will build buyers similar to how the 3ds was but it will be too little too late. By the time Mario Kart comes out they will have lost too many people to PS4 and its shiny graphics.. Mario Kart should have been in December and Mario and DK in the spring. They should have just thrown one of those two out and made either one great game everyone would want or something new. 3 DKs in 2 years Is ridiculous.

          • Luffy

            Donkey Kong Country Return was release In 2010, now its 2013. It’s been 3 years since the last Donkey Kong.

            Donkey Kong Country for 3DS is not another game, so its not 3 games in 2 years, it’s 2 games in 3 years with one being available on 2 consoles

            (it’s like saying “look, they are going to release 6 COD games this year” because it’s coming on PS3/Xbox360/WiiU/PC/PS4/Xbone)

            It’s still the same game.

          • Zuxs13

            It is and isn’t the same game they added a bunch of crap for the 3ds. And no matter how you look at it, its 3 years of wasted development of one of their best studios. Wiiu and Nintendo doesn’t need any more platformers they have more than enough of them.

          • Luffy

            well, what if i enjoy platformers?
            i love nintendo for bringing back 2D platformers. donkey kong country tropical freeze looks awesome and i cant wait to play it!

            so to say that they wasted years of development, well that just means you dont like that particular game. let the one that enjoy it have it.

            i know im going to get hate for that, but i do not like smash games. but i do not see its development as being a wast of resource. of xourse i would prefer if sakurai would develop a kid icarus game for wii u, but you cant always have what you want.

            if i could get one game from nintendo, that would be a new startropics, but will it happen? probably not. i would love it if it was made by retro, but i wont whine about them doing something else. i know that i am not alone in the world.

  • Starfoxguy

    YES!!!!!! There is still hope for our favorite games.

  • david jarman

    The investors probably were told what games were in development.
    Maybe, that’s why activision and ubisoft keep publicly expressing their support for nintendo and EA is interested and watching.

    • NkoSekirei

      i wouldnt even care less about EA their abunch of pansies

  • Dustin Poisson

    I really hope so. Iwata

  • Emilio Díaz

    METROID !!! WITH HALO’S GRAPHICS !!!!

    • Zuxs13

      Halo has metroid graphics since a bunch of 343 studios designers are former Retro employees that worked on metroid prime.

      • TassosNoDensetsu

        what is so great about halo’s graphics?

        • Zuxs13

          Sorry I was generalizing. I should have said art style not graphics to be more specific. But I was going with what this guyhad said above since most people group them as the same. The art style of the latest halo is very much like that of Prime.

  • kinghenroc187

    he doesn’t want the competitor to copy us nice one iwata is about time nintendo sais something about that

  • Luna Moonfang

    The only Magnus i know is this one…

  • DingoWalley

    Well, no Duh. Nintendo is a Video Game Company, they aren’t going to stop releasing games right after Super Smash Bros. and then say “Nope, never gonna make anything else.” This pretty much goes without saying.

    I’m pretty pumped to see what they got up their sleeves!

  • fireheartis1

    Let’s hope one of those games is Project Hammer. Dang it still pisses me off that they didn’t finish that game for some reason.

  • Josiah Parsons

    Metroid! Star Fox! MarioParty 10! Yayyyyyy!!

    • Amz Strange

      Yep, I honestly think they’re very good guesses!

      Starfox definitely, Miyamoto said last year that it’s top of his list, so that’s a very good sign. Other M aside, Metroid can usually shift over 1 million units, so there’s still hope for that, speaking from a business perspective. Mario Party is a massive seller – 2.5 million for Mario Party 9 – so add that with the relative ease to make (compared to games like Zelda, Metroid, 3D Mario, etc) and it’s probably a dead cert!

      • Josiah Parsons

        Out of the three, I would be most excited about MarioParty. Can you imagine the 3vs1 minigames?

  • Madmagican

    Always nice to know that there’s more stuff on the way

  • Jack5221

    METROID!!!! PLEASE OH PLEASE!!!!

  • John Andalora

    1) What does Iwata mean by “by 2014?” Does he mean that they’ll be released by Jan.1, 2014, or that they’ll be released sometime around and through 2014?
    2) I bring this up because if they are releasing them before 2014, how exactly would competitors be able to steal that? If everyones arguments here about how games take a long time to make are true, how could competitors copy those games?
    3) On top of that, why talk about Mario Kart or Smash Bros coming “sometime around 2014″ if there were games as good coming before then? If there’s a concern about a long announcement/ release time, why announce them like that? I know they’re big titles people love, but why not talk about more recent coming titles for Fall/ Winter, and then talk about the games as another advertisement in the Fall to get people hyped up for buying the console over Christmas?
    4) Wouldn’t it seem more reasonable that competitors would copy games that people are going to be waiting for and that would be easier to copy, like Mario Kart or Smash Bros?
    5) And, after all that, if you have a disappointed audience, why not at least talk about these supposedly unannounce games that aren’t big enough names to talk about at a press show, but apparently big enough to claim that competitors would actually try and copy them rather than the massive titles they typically copy?

    • rafter

      exactly… Nintendo just has to much cash on their balance sheets to care …. they probably do not even care whether people buy the PS4 or Xbox One in addition to their Wii U… they know they will sell a lot of their franchises anyway… whether that is in a year or 2… who cares….

      Nintendo… just sad as a huge fan (I still think you made most of the best games ever in game history)…. but I am really disappointed… the only game which really looks incredible is Mario Kart 8… but oh yes, well we have to wait more than another year for that…. lol its just unbelievable

      • John Andalora

        Nintendo was so awesome back in the day. They made a bunch of awesome new games. It was a wonder how someone didn’t own a Nintendo console.
        Now it’s just sequels and remakes with a few exclusives, with the consoles “innovation” inhibiting who actually wants to make games for them.

        • Zuxs13

          Though I agree they make many sequels but its no more than any other company, in fact they are far less than most. Sony has made 7 god of wars in 7 years. And Nintendo has released many new IPs in the last 7 years. But I agree they need more Ames like X and Bayonetta.

          • John Andalora

            I know other companies do it, but, as you agree, it doesn’t excuse Nintendo. I hold them to a higher standard because I know they can do much more. But after 8 Mario Karts, 11 Mario Party games, and 4 NSMB games and 1 NSLU, I’m just a bit disappointed.

          • Zuxs13

            That’s 8 Mario Karts in 25 years on 8 systems. I would say that’s a higher standard. I only agree they make many sequels but they are by no means and bad as 3rd part or Sony or MS at least not with their key franchises.
            Believe me they make a bunch of new IPs. Problem is few people recognize many of them as a new IP because its a game they are spoon fed by the media and gamins sites to play. If itdoesnt “look pretty” then it doesn’t count.

          • Zuxs13
          • John Andalora

            This article is really fishing. Bayonetta 2 as new IP? Really?
            As for the rest of it, i agree other companies do it a lot. But think of companies like Ubisoft, that both rely on smash sequels but delve into constant new ideas like ZombiU and Watch Dogs?
            Nintendo seems to be relying a bit too much in past successes to sell their current console, and I’m not seeing as many changes between sequels as we used to.

          • Zuxs13

            Well it is a new IP for Nintendo. But it isn’t made by them. Nintendo delves into constant new ideas too, they just don’t make games like watch dog, uncharted, halo or what ever you are looking for.
            Ofcourse the changes are nit as drastic any more, there isn’t huge new tech like 3d words, HD graphics, motion control. That’s just where we are in today’s era anything new is going to seem less subtitle.

          • John Andalora

            Remember how much of a change Paper Mario was to the world? That’s a game that showed us that it doesn’t need to have massive 3D worlds or some gimmicks to be fun: it was just fun through its humorous adventure with wacky events and hilariously exciting gameplay.
            I’m just not feeling the same thing with Donkey Kong Country Returns, New Super Mario Bros U, or even Pikmin 3. It all feels like a big jumbled mess of what Nintendo thinks the fans love, rather than just making something new themselves.
            And I don’t care what the article says: Wii Fit is nowhere on par with games from the past.

  • sd

    That was the reason E3 was an initial dispointment. They had previously announced too many games. They should have not mentioned X and a few others like maybe mario kart. To me I was expecting mario kart later this year due to previous announcements. SO they should have kept it quiet and I would have not been disapointed.

  • TULFich

    I wish, besides de core games, that they could make another Mario Strikers one!!! man I´m having so much fun with the Wii one right now :D

  • gimpcell

    I dont want anymore games. I am already broke.

  • Johny

    IN NINTENDO WE TRUST

  • Robert Distefano

    Will there still be a 3rd party direct?

  • $41809923

    it might be third party games or more big nintendo games who nose

  • Forbsz

    I wonder what these unannounced games might be! I hope SMT x FE is still happening do you guys think it will with all that has happened with Atlus parent company!!!

    • Zuxs13

      Atlus stated they are not effected by the parent company nor are any games

  • William Cole

    He’s definitely talking about at least Zelda and Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. At least those.

    • TassosNoDensetsu

      maybe zelda, but Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem as allready been announce.

      i think its something else entirely. not even zelda ( i doubt its gonna be ready for 2014)

  • Forbsz

    I would be excited for new games but Wii U is outdated they can’t show me anything that hasn’t already been done on xbox 360 and ps3….. Wii U OUTDATED!!

    • Andreas Sunde

      Mario Kart 8 can’t be done on any gen 7 console.

      • oontz

        HA HA HA… that was funny. Well done!!

      • Forbsz

        Outdated system outdated games.

    • NkoSekirei

      the only thing thats outdated here is u trolls do us all a favor and stfu

      • Forbsz

        Wii U still outdated

  • DemonRoach

    Outdated system thats not going to have quality games for 2 years after its release. This fiasco is such a shame.

    • Jimmy D. Fugate

      Don’t mention the Xbox One on this site. Thanks.

      • oontz

        Xbone is FAR from outdated. Does someone have buyers remorse?

        • sslamajama97

          Go troll somewhere else, thanks. And, FYI, I would rather have a WiiU with awesome Nintendo titles and nothing else than a console that spies on me whenever I play a game. It (The Xbone) may be sligtly more powerful than the WiiU, but just look at MarioKart8 if you want to feed me bull that it (the WiiU) is underpowered/outdated. It’s not.

          • NkoSekirei

            i agree and microsoft continues to flip flop on their policies which its pissing many of the xbox gamers off

          • oontz

            Slightly more powerful? ha ha ha, and I may slightly be a billionaire!

          • TassosNoDensetsu

            just look at X!

            best looking game of E3, and i really think so.

          • sslamajama97

            Exactly. The WiiU is definitely capable of making awesome-looking games. It just needs to gain 3rd party support and build up an install base. If it does that, then I guarentee people’s minds will change. Also, they should *cough* drop the price to $300 *cough*. And, maybe another couple things as well. But, like you mentioned, the WiiU is definitely capable of making awesome games. Look at X and Mariokart8, and many others as well.

        • Jimmy D. Fugate

          Can’t very well play Zelda, Metroid, DK, ZombiU and Mario on other consoles, can I? No, come August my wallet will be empty.

          • oontz

            you can play them on 3ds (not including zombiu)

          • Jimmy D. Fugate

            We’re talking home consoles, not handhelds. Funny, no one ever seems to include handhelds in the “console war” unless it benefits their points…

    • oontz
  • Ice Climbers

    Star Fox or F-Zero seem likely. Or they might finally reboot me…

  • Guest

    Who thinks that Nintendo should remake, or make a sequel to their N64 games?
    Personally I would like to see:
    A new 3D open-world Donkey Kong game.
    Another Pokemon Stadium would be nice. (I’d call it Pokemon Stadium U, just because)
    Pokemon snap 2 (come on Nintendo! Make it happen!)
    Maybe a spiritual successor to banjo & kazooie (I did hear that some of the ex-Rare employees have joined and are making a spiritual successor, but I doubt it’s true :P)

    • Andreas Sunde

      It’s true. Several of the Banjo guys are working on a spritual successor to BK, and it’s most likely coming to Wii U.

      • oontz

        but the BK logo was shown during the XB1 conference as an exclusive…
        http://gamingbolt.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/xboxonegames.jpg

        • Infamizmikep

          Banjo and Kazooie is made by rare! Rare is owned by Micrsoft! Banjo and Kazooie will only come out on Xb** On*

        • Andreas Sunde

          That was not during the conference, it’s a leaked image, probably fake.

          But it doesn’t matter, because the guys who made BK isn’t with Rare anymore, they quit, and some of them are working on a spiritual successor to BK. And since it’s not actually BK, MS can’t keep it away from the Wii U.

  • Bob Charlie

    Is Nintendo planning a Pear Harbor type game attack on the industry?
    Tora! Tora! Tora!
    Drop dem’ bombs, Nintendo!

  • rafter

    seriously I get really annouyed …. wait? man, for what??? For Wario cr**? there are maybe 10 good games on the wii u…. half of them availalble on other platforms as well… what is Nintendo’s strategy? …. I already decided to get a PS4…. I will keep my Wii U only for Zelda (which probably comes sometime in 2015!!!! and Mario Kart 8…. (if that it is really coming mid 2014…. will bedelayed again if you look at all the other games being delayed….)…

    seriously I am a huge Nintendo fan, but guys, be honest, I had to buy some old Wii games to be able to play some games…. playing Goldeneye right now… I mean… just look at all the releases, even the PS3 still has more amazing games coming out right now (Last of Us, etc)….

    I just dont understand what the strategy is…. in my opinion, from a business perspective, Nintendo has failed big time…. the games will be awesome and of high quality, that is not what I mean… but Luigi U doesnt help me either to be really convinced of the Wii U…. and Pikmin… sersiouly, nice game, but its not Mario 3D or Mario Kart ….

    and here comes the joke… I probable gonna buy it anyway… because I HAVE NOTHING TO PLAY!!!!!!!…..

    • Guest

      Pikmin is one of the deepest strategy games on the market.

      • oontz

        ummm, no it isn’t. If you think Pikmin is a DEEP strategy game then you know nothing about strategy games. Pikmin is like beginners strategy… it’s fun and does the job, but it’s not very DEEP such as the many other strategy based videogames available.

      • kenny Johnson

        I love Pikmin, but not sure how you can say that.

    • rafter

      when I read some comments on this site… I just dont understand the people… yes, of course, I love Nintendo as well.. it shaped my entire childhood…. BUT BE HONEST!!!! A NEW ZELDA and MARIO KART in 1-2 years is just not enough… and the comments about “I am looking forward to the next e3 in 2014 withn lots of great announcements…” <—– Is this seriously what you are looking for??? Man, this is another year, and the games wont be on the market then as well…..

      Like I said, all good and quality made games… I still keep my Wii U, especially because I spend a lot of money, Mario Kart 8 looks awesome and Zelda will probably be incredible… nevertheless, this is in anothe 1-2 years… I probably buy the new PS4 or Xbox One (right now I favor the PS4….)…

      Just dont understand why Nintendo is not pushing more…. to get more third party support… just disappointing…. I had so much hopes in this new system…

      • kenny Johnson

        Honestly, I don’t have enough time or money for all the games I want to play that are coming out between now and December! Granted, both my game budget and time for games is pretty limited, but seriously… How many games do you need?

        If I had unlimited funds, I’d be picking up Pikmin 3,Disney Infinity, Splinter Cell, Rayman, Wonderful 101, Zelda WW, Arkham Origins, AC4, DKC, Watch Dogs, Deus Ex, Lego Marvel, Skylanders, Sonic Lost World, Scribblenauts, Wii Fit U, and Mario.

        Right now though — with the money I can spend, It looks like it will be Skylanders (already pre-ordered), Pikmin 3 and Zelda.

  • 7Down

    Well kinda obvious that there are more titles coming than what were shown at E3, but does Iwata mean that these games are only 1st/2nd party?

    I understand this move, it makes sense, but I’d still like some teasers, rumours, what are these games, I want to know a little bit what I can get in the future, right now I’m very interested about Deus Ex and Watch Dogs and am willing to wait for them, might even pick up AC4, never played the previous AC games so might as well check what it’s all about.

    Knowing that there are more games in the works, just doesn’t get me excited, show us something then I’m happy.

  • Andrew W Garttmeyer

    I dunno, this sounds like a bit of smoke blowing. Yea, E3 announcements were so crowded! I couldn’t get ANY information on Pikmin. Please, that’s crap. MAYBE some truth in what he is saying about competitors, but the games that will get released he is talking about are not big games, they will be another TANK! game or another 3rd party title that was not big enough to get people excited about.

    My main point…I am not holding my breath for another big nes title before 2014 that has not been announced and if you are, just prepare yourself for some disappointment.

  • Emily Horton

    Animal Crossing U and Metroid Prime 4….please? D:

  • thedeciderU

    i’m glad to hear this. surprises are always welcome!

  • devmiles

    nintendo is as slow as shit… i fucking hate that… my wii-u is collecting dust… 2014 for the majority of the titles… man, ps4 will have like 40 titles that will piss all over them. i’m tired with these luigi u updates or lazy whatever behaviour…give the wii-u owners what they want.. mariokart 8 ..yes it’s great but late 2014 come on..i’m getting fucking pissed with this shitty behaviour

    • sslamajama97

      Actually, I thought MK8 was coming early 2014. But, I agree ith you in the respect that Ninty does need to pick up on their titles. If they do, and they sell well and the WiiU gets a huge install base, then 3rd party devs will flock to the console in droves, no matter how “under-powered” the console supposedly is.

    • NkoSekirei

      dude even ps4 and xboner will suffer the same drought wii u has went through and by the way their are awsome titles coming for the wii u in a few months

      • oontz

        Dude… Sony has 30 PS4 EXCLUSIVE GAMES in development, 20 are coming out in the first 12 months and 12 of those are all new IPs. This is alongside all of the amazing 3rd party content. There is going to be no such drought on the PS4. Sony is smart that’s why they own 13 first party studios making games only for them. If you want great games the PS4 will have you covered.

        • TassosNoDensetsu

          yet, as of now, not one game release in the first year on ps4 interest me.

          there are 2 game im interested on ps4. kingdom hearts 3 and final fantasy 15, but when will they be available.?

    • BJaq

      I play my Wii U almost every day and my other consoles. They collect dust even in use. Just clean your room and take care of your stuff.

      Now, for the rest of your argument- I can understand a bit.

  • disqus_TCujPcjAm7

    This site and editors be trolling Nintendo, I personally think E3 was awesome for the big N

  • Josh Gilbert

    Last thing Nintendo needs to worry about is competition stealing their ideas…yeah it happened a lot in the past. However, with all of the new IPs, especially Sony is bringing, they need to worry about garnering attention with some high caliber titles by flexing that HD muscle. Show us just trailers of Zelda, Metroid, and the first real new IP since Pikmin….yeah, it’s been that long.

    • ICHI

      It hasn’t been that long unfortunately Wii Fit and Wii Sports were the Wii’s new IP’s, they bring a couple out every generation is it just because wii sports is in every ones house that no-one remembers? You could also argue Wii Party and Wii play but wii party is just mario party with Mii’s. If I’m going to get picky, Battalion Wars and Animal Crossing came out after pikmin on Gamecube……………………just saying, oh and thats not mentioning excite truck or excitebots…………..

      • TassosNoDensetsu

        they released plenty of new ip after pikmin
        soma bringer (great rpg on ds only available in japan)
        odama
        wii (insert word here)
        steel diver
        xenoblade
        pandoras tower
        last story
        brain age
        nintendogs
        big brain academy
        legendary starfly
        rhythm heaven
        batalion wars

        and probably many more i forget.
        maybe they are not all for you, but that is the thing with nintendo, they do games for everyone.

        • ICHI

          Oh there’s many more, just trying to stay away from games where they don’t own the IP and ones on handheld as they have never had the same kind of problem with handheld support.

          • TassosNoDensetsu

            all the game i listed, nintendo owns the ip. and to ignore nintendo’s new ip by saying they are on a portable, well its like saying kirby is not a nintendo ip because it was release on a handheld first. or wario ware, or waverace….

            fine, you dont want to play on a handheld. but most of these ip finish on a home console sooner or later. They cant simply be ignore.

            and, of all the game i listed, only brain age, nintendogs and legendary starfly have not been made on a home console yet. (steel diver is coming later this year on wii u)

          • ICHI

            Haha I do play handhelds and wasn’t meaning to sound negative was meaning it seemed the original poster was talking about home consoles so replied in a home console perspective as Nintendo throw out too many to name everything on handheld, they have no problem making and releasing new games quickly in that space. Er I meant by the ip’s owned I’m not sure they actually own xenoblade, last story and Pandoras tower, thought they just acted as publisher like they did with original rare ware games. For now I thought they have deals with or own a portion of the developers but the properties are not owned by Nintendo? Looking forward to steel diver BTW :-)

          • TassosNoDensetsu

            cool no problem dude :)

            as for xenoblade, its definitely own by nintendo as monolith software is a nintendo first party studio

            last story and pandora’s tower, from what i understand, they are nintendo ip’s developed by another studio (kind of like fzero gx is still a nintendo ip even thou it was develop by sega)

          • ICHI

            I bloody hope so dude, all three of those games were epic and getting sequels on Wii u is going to be a big boon for the system. Monolith aren’t first party though they used to make ps2 games so must be 2nd party Nintendo now akin to rare.

          • TassosNoDensetsu

            Actually, Nintendo owns 96% of Monolith Software, so they are a first party studio.

            They used to be own by Namco, but Namco sold there shares to Nintendo.

            They’ve been first party since 2007

          • ICHI

            YAY!!!!

          • Fred

            I can’t wait for the Xenoblade sequel X!!!

          • ICHI

            Its going to be so good! Jrpg story from the best in the business, dinosaurs, giant robots, massive open world and probably a great fighting system!

        • Fred

          There have been several more in the 3Ds eShop. Like Harmoknight, and Dillions Rolling Western They also started the Mario vs Donkey Kong games awhile back which are fun.

    • BJaq

      New IPs don’t = new ideas. I’ve seen lots of new IPs from several companies including Sony and MS that are the same ideas just a new name plastered on it. This obviously doesn’t apply to ALL, but a majority, for sure.

  • Sora Morp

    it’s just gonna be more mario games…no kirby..pokemon..f-zero..metroid

    • Your money

      Why would u think that? As nintendo said: “It’s all about the games this year.”

      • Sora Morp

        its because majority of the games coming out have been just mario games and I just wanted them announce a new game apart from mario/zelda

  • http://people.ign.com/pdxmojo81 Pdxmojo81

    “Don’t want to leave a long gap between announcement/release of new game types that would lessen the impact or allow competitors to copy.”

    Isn’t a year a long time to wait for a game? IE Mario Kart 8 (and many other promised games). I am still waiting for a MUST HAVE game to come out for the Wii U, and its been on the market for 7 months.

    I hope something changes soon.

    • Fred

      That MUST HAVE GAME is coming next year. I don’t know exactly what it’s called, but we know it as X

  • Downvote&CoEmployee5

    I like this

  • Mochlum

    I predict they will release a new Direct sometime in August or late July, showing games they didn’t at E3 like Yarn Yoshi, Mario Golf, and Mario Party, maybe some new trailers for games like 3D World, Tropical Freeze, or Smash Bros, and a new announcement. It would kind of make sense and create more hype.

  • Your money

    Nintendo’s choice of announcing some of the upcoming games was a pretty smart move. It just adds up more hype and excitement. Hopefully one of those games will be a new starfox game. Or, maybe an old nintendo licensed game reborn into a new game. (Just like Kid Icarus Uprising.)

    Well done nice job nintendo.

    “We have to admit, Nintendo’s Wii U E3 lineup wasn’t as great as we expected. ”
    Hmm, Nintendo exceeded my expectations at E3… They had best in show. Sony pretty much lost when they decided to charge for online multiplayer play.

    EFFF That. I’ll stick to PC/Wii U.

  • TheGreatGamer2000

    Pssh… Yeah those games are just crap. I’ll stick with COD Ghosts thank you

  • Kmac

    I agree completely !!!

  • Gothamknight

    Iwata’s most likely referring to VC titles lol. I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

  • Clel

    EVERYBODY SURPRISE HIM BY GIVING HIM UPVOTES

  • sslamajama97

    Oh, goody…you’re back. Now I have to endure your constant prattle about how Nintendo sucks and is lying again. Whoopie…

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Since they promised more games announced and only a few were, true. In my opinion, I think Iwata should just resign and let someone with more balls and who is honest with it’s fanbase to take the reigns, but again, I digress.

  • KnowledgeIsPower

    I do not think it is a lie. Nintendo made several announcements after last years E3 there is a 67% chance that a new big title will be announced soon. Do not forget that Nintendo does its direct streams throughout the year and not just during the week of E3.

  • KnowledgeIsPower

    The comment Iwata made is probably referring to these unannounced games so I do not understand why you are disappointed.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I’m not disappointed about the games, since I don’t own a Wii U. My disappointment is him as president of Nintendo for the past 11 years that he has been. I just don’t see him that great as the previous one. The unannonced games means nothing to me. Until the Wii U shows me something that I like and appeals to me as a gamer, then I will reconsider.

  • KnowledgeIsPower

    Very well, now I understand your comment. I would howeverlike to ask you what games would make you go out and buy a wiiU. Seeing you here on this site tells me that part of you is considering getting a wiiU. If you want games, they will come. However, I can in all honesty say that the wiiU has gotten more use than the wii, ps3, or 360 ever did.

  • kenny Johnson

    Why do people hate Iwata? He’s killed it. The DS, 3DS, Wii? Why the hell would he be fired or resign after a decade like that?

  • oontz

    I couldn’t disagree more… my wiiu is collecting dust this year as I have been enjoying numerous amazing game experiences on my ps3. Tomb Raider, Bio Shock Infinite, The Last Of Us, just to name a few. Soon we’ll have GTA V!! Don’t get me wrong when some good games come for wiiu I’ll power it up and game on, but for now… not so much.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Only games that I see worth it right now is Super Smash Bros. Super Mario World 3D looks like it took a step back from the Galaxy series, as it doesn’t look anywhere near as impressive to me. Mario Kart 8 isn’t so bad, but I’m not sold on it however. The fact that 3rd party companies are supporting it that much except Ubisoft is a good factor to not get one right now. Last thing I wanna do is by a system that lacks the games that I would want.

    Wii U doesn’t have that much use compared to the PS3 or 360 as those two systems are well established in the market and have more to offer right now. Wii U can’t even get itself out of hot water.

    Yes, I still have some consideration for it as I still do care about Nintendo, but if they don’t get their act together soon then I’m gone this generation.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Because he’s under the impression that he knows what gamers want and I’m not talking about Nintendo fans as they’re typical usually on what they want. More Mario, Zelda and Pokemon. I may be generalizing, but that’s usually the case.

    More importantly, he’s done a horrible job advertising the Wii U and has done little to fix it. Also, the lack of announcements doesn’t help matters as it didn’t increase sales by much so again, if no one is still not buying a Wii U, then those gamers aren’t really looking that foward to their games.

    3DS is about the only thing that is helping Nintendo right now and about the only thing they get right. Also, Wii doesn’t really count as it wasn’t compeating with the 360 and PS3, as most have said, it is a novelty item. It had its hype and it slowed down half way through it’s life with some quality titles too far between.

    I don’t hate Nintendo just because I criticize them, I just tell the truth and not act like they’re doing an awesome job. I think outside the box, not live in one sheltered from reality.

  • kenny Johnson

    That’s such BS. The Wii was a phenomenon. It wasn’t competing with the X-box 360 or PS3 because it killed them. They couldn’t keep up.

    The problem is a lot of you guys live in this freakin’ gaming bubble and don’t know that there are normal people who like to play games too.

    For the rest of us, we care little about 1080/60fps M-rated shooters. Give me a game I can play with my son and/or wife.

  • NkoSekirei

    like u know troll seriously stfu dude and their are games coming for the wii u starting in august

  • kenny Johnson

    Oh.. and calling the Wii a novelty item is just a way for gamers to rationalize what they couldn’t otherwise explain… They predicted the Wii would fail because it wasn’t HD… because it had controllers that weren’t ideal for “hardcore gaming.” Then after it succeeed, they explained to themselves… “Oh yeah.. it was successful, but not as a console — but as a novelty item.” Give me a break.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Hahaha. Killed them? Only killers from Nintendo was their first party. That system had little to no third party. It sold alot, but it didn’t have the same software sales that the ps3 and 360 had. Nice try. Go back to the mushroom kingdom my friend, cause you don’t live in reality.

    Also, what does M rated shooters have to do with this, I don’t care about just M rated games, I like all types of games. My point is that Nintendo is the same ol’ boring Nintendo with just a heap of Mario games and Pokemon and some Zelda. Nothing innovative going on there. Nintendo needs to evlove, not stay stuck in their bubble.

  • kenny Johnson

    as well as their ps3s and xbox 360s? What your point?

  • Marc Duarte

    That’s what they get for buying it on impulse without first taking the time to do proper research on the games that will be coming to the system. It’s not Nintendo’s fault people don’t think.

  • oontz

    Some great deals on there for sure! Wish I would had waited

  • disqus_TCujPcjAm7

    Don’t worry about my thoughts worry about yours and if you notice I never replied to any of your comment and theirs a reason for my lack of interest in your opinion.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I’ve always have, just been nice about it for too long I’d say. Since the disappointment and Nintendo’s poor attitudes of late, enough is enough.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    When one speaks the truth, you call them a troll. When one praises Nintendo like Budda, you upvote them. We call that being a hypocrite.

    No, I will not shut up, as I’m putting out my opinions and facts that back it up. If you don’t like it, then don’t respond. That simple and go back to Hyrule.

    As for the games, yeah, they’re coming, and not soon enough for Nintendo. These games should have been out long ago.

  • KnowledgeIsPower

    Well if you ever do get a wiiU I would like to suggest Xenoblade 2. If it is half as good as Xenoblade was then it will be game of its respective year.

  • oontz

    ha ha, so you’re comparing the wiiu to ps3 and 360? ABOUT TIME!

  • TassosNoDensetsu

    the point is that you will always find all the consoles for sale on ebay.
    it happens all the time. some people buy a console on impulse with a game, and get sick of it couple of month later and sell it.

    name me one console this as not happen
