Iwata says more key Wii U titles will be announced by third parties in the future

Iwata2

The lack of third party support for the Wii U is something most people familiar with the situation know well. The Wii U has not sold very well since stalling in January and since then, third party publishers like EA and Activision have been hesitant to announce titles for the Wii U. Nintendo had addressed this in the latest round of investor Q&A, with Iwata saying that third parties are still developing for the Wii U.

“There are currently a small number of announcements of new games by third-party software developers for Wii U. I am not in a position to discuss the software to be launched by the third-party developers in detail, but there are more key titles to be announced by them.”

Iwata gives no mention to exactly who these third-party developers are and what announcements haven’t been made, but the company has recently done well to lessen their restrictions on indie developers in order to attract them to the platform. Iwata went on to discuss the important of first-party titles that will help establish the new Nintendo console as once again viable in the console market space.

      A new Direct would definitely be nice

    • RoyRelapse

      I expect an announcement tomorrow, and the Nintendo Direct itself the 17th, based upon the past.

      • Luffy

        if you’re right, I will always ask you when the next Nintendo Direct is! :P

  • Jandkas

    Iwata is smart, first build up a larger broader user base using games like super mario 3D world (multiplayer), Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. Then using the amount of people buying the console 3rd parties will increase, and then develop for the Wii U. So that is when you can start making niche games.

    • SH*TBLOCK

      Again this has been an issue with them since the GameCube. Nintendo knows they can survive because of their classic IP’s, but they have been to prideful and unaccepting of 3rd party games over the years, which had now lead them not to thrive in the industry.

      I have always loved Nintendo but they have made mistakes in the past and in some ways they still see today”s gamers like we are still on the original NES. They really need to make that extra effort getting 3rd party support on the their side by getting their IP’s out to make the U sell more but also announcing these 3rd party games, introducing more partnerships, and having these 3rd parties announcing their interest in the U as well.

      Nintendo then has to stop playing safe with its next console and truly start thinking world-wide. Yes keep the Game-pad, and make even more new innovative things but make damn sure that console will be bigger than the PS4 and Xbox One and on par with what ever the PS5 and Xbox Two will be in terms of hardware and make sure some if not all of their classic IP’s can go on-line starting with the U’s next one and into the future.

      • Jandkas

        “Nintendo then has to stop playing safe with its next console and truly start thinking world-wide.” Completely disagree, they haven’t played it safe, and they are thinking worldwide, why else do you think that pokemon X and Y are going to be released simultaneously. “some if not all of their classic IP’s can go on-line ” I don’t believe just adding online for the sake of adding online, if you read the interview in Spec Ops, the developer said that it was completely tacked on and useless. The same can detract from a good single player experience such as Zelda or Metroid. There are IP’s that need online like SSB and there are ones that don’t.

        • SH*TBLOCK

          check out my other reply thanks!

      • Elem187

        How is making the titles its fans want considered playing it safe?
        Mario Kart Wii sold around 30 million copies, its obvious Nintendo fans love this game, so why is it called playing it safe to provide their customers with the titles they want most?
        Metroid Prime 3 Corruption sold 500k …. Its pretty obvious not very many people want a metroid game. Donky Kong Country Returns sold 5 million copies. How is it playing it safe to bring a title the majority of their fans want most?

        • Amz Strange

          That’s what “playing it safe” means, though. Making a new Donkey Kong and Mario Kart for Wii U is a safe, sound business decision.

          If they had announced Metroid Prime 4 and Chibi Robo 2 instead (for example) then that would definitely not be playing it safe, and also a bit stupid on their part, as those games sell nowhere near the amount that Donkey Kong and Mario Kart do, like you said.

          I think what that guy means it that maybe Nintendo should try breaking into new markets and consumer demographics by making some new IP’s (as well as Mario Kart & Donkey Kong, etc.) that might appeal to people who aren’t already Nintendo fans? There’s a risk to it, as the new games might not click with people, but if successful, it could broaden the Wii U’s global appeal.

        • SH*TBLOCK

          First off, this is for all that commented on my comment. The games he mentioned wasn’t why I was saying Nintendo was safe, and I like/willbuy both of those games coming to the U. Nintendo’s IP’s is what will get the U selling and they should of had these games lined up better at launch but Nintendo get the U out last year because nothing was coming out for the Wii anymore and didn’t take into consideration what they needed to make these games. I would love to see (like I have said before) Nintendo try to make an adult IP like in a Western RPG style, if it bombs oh well they tried, but more over I want the same on-line power with the same basic hardware specs BUT have Nintendo add in their cool ideas like the Game-pad and such. I don’t want a Zelda game to go on-line but any of their games that has off-line MP should now have on-line MP like Wii Sports, Nintendolad, NSBMU, Mario 3D, DKCR, etc. Like I said before my best friends can’t come over like we did as kids that much any more but we’re all still gamers, I would love to be able to play these childhood games with my best buddies like we do with COD and such. Nintendo has to realize this and give us these chances in their games, even more would buy them. Why do you think so many bought Mario Kart Wii and SSBB on the Wii in the first place? Are they so superior to MP3, or MG MG2, or DKCR…nope…BUT BECAUSE THESE WERE THE GAMES THAT YOU COULD TAKE ON-LINE AND PLAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY!!!

          Second get your facts straight, Metroid Prime 3 sold 1.65 million copies, Prime Trilogy sold 670K, and Metroid: Other M 1.23 million sold. So I think many more people like those games. Onto the others DKCR 5.98 million sold and MKWii 33.80 million sold so you were closer on them.

          Third the safe side of Nintendo is about their hardware and what and how they think today’s gamers are. I have no problem with their IP’s and love their classics and will buy them over and over. But the separation of 3rd parties started way back with Nintendo and to many gamers only buy their console for their games and not for 3rd party games. You see the difference mainly since the Wii and now into the U. Nintendo doesn’t want this but seems to be content with it because they can survive with their own console because of their own IP’s. The problem is so many have moved away from Nintendo altogether which just sucks. I have never bought another brand’s console and now I really feel the need to for the first time to enjoy games like Madden, ME4, The Division, etc all which can be on and should just be on the WiiU.

          Fourth why do I have to buy two consoles to get what I want as a gamer? The answer simply is because it’s about making money with the 3rd parties and Nintendo played it safe with the U just like they did with the Wii. Now I hope because they will be the cheapest console and also when their IP’s do hit many more families, and gamers will buy the U and in turn get these money grubbing 3rd party Devs to freaking start making games and/or great ports to the U.

  • mojack411

    I was hoping Nintendo was going to do what they did last year and hold a ND 2 weeks after E3 that really showed things off. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case. At this point I’m kinda starving for a ND that would announce these kind of things.

      I am not sure what you are saying here… Did you mean to say you would like to see GTA V on the Wii U??

      In all seriousness though I think the options with the gamepad for this game could be interesting.

      • Nintedward

        The point he’s trying to make is Watchdogs…. lol

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

          I actually believe Watchdogs will be a better game than GTA V which is why I have Watchdogs pre-ordered for the Wii U.

          • Lethal_Doze

            Watch Dogs will be overhyped garbage, like most Ubisoft games

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

            You are entitled to your opinion but based on the last few GTA releases they have gone to garbage IMO.

          • FaTih

            and you dont have to install watch dogs

          • Luffy

            i hope you are wrong, but doubt it…
            Well, I dont think it will be garbage, but it wont be a masterpiece either…

          • Elem187

            I believe this too.. We have had 4 GTA’s so far, watch dogs is a new open world game with a different plot basis.
            Since GTA 5 isn’t announced for PC or Wii U yet, I have no interest, so maybe I’m biased.

          • thedeciderU

            the only thing i can tell i’m not too into with watch_dogs is aiden’s voice. what is he going to become batman later in the game? WHERE’S THE GIRL?!!!!

          • thedeciderU

            agree

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Agree, GTA was cool games in the beginning. But seen one, seen all of them.

    • Pikachief

      Exactly.

    • Stephen Davis

      lol :D I like it!

    • Super Buu

      I believe you want Grand Theft Auto V, am I correct?

      • Morits Lian

        Apparently not.

    • Bobaganoosh

      Lol

    • RockieOllie

      I have a feeling that when he says third party titles he is referring to indie 2D side scrollers and puzzle games for the eShop… I soooo wana be wrong with this assumption

      • Christopher Acuna

        yeeeaaaa :(

      • david jarman

        No.
        Third parties are third party.
        Indies are indies.
        Iwata knows that and does not like being misinterpret.
        Crytec are mad at ea for pulling the plug on their wii u game that was finished.
        Criterion is on verge of jumping ship
        Valve spoke of interest in making a wii u game and so did blizzard.

        • RockieOllie

          Technically, Indie developer are third parties since they are not apart of the company.

          But i love the optimism

        • DragonSilths

          Valve you say? Portal 3 on Wii U? Please?

          • david jarman

            I know, right!
            There is that one 3d fps puzzle game that’s coming out soon. So, hopefully that pushed Valve even more.
            Seeing how monster hunter is thriving, maybe that opened up blizzards eyes.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      No life

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

    I hope so. Also Notice to 3rd Party Developers/Publishers – PLEASE DO NOT release watered down ports to the Wii U. I know that some of you like to blame Nintendo for poor game sales on games you release multi-platform but the fact remains many 3rd parties like to release their games missing features, no online, delayed DLC or no DLC, or release their game on Nintendo after other platforms and then cry and complain of the poor sales.

    If you release the game at the same time, with all the features, and support it with the same DLC then the game will sell better. I know simple logic may escape some of you 3rd parties but it is really not that hard.

  • Archiq09

    I know we will maybe have Dead or Alive 5 with DLC on wii u. but tecmo Koei Games says: “They will make a wii u version if gamers want it.”

  • $41809923

    CAPCOM AND SQUARE HAS SOME BIG NEW COMING TO THE WII U BECAUSE NOW THEY ARE SECOND PARTY STUDIOS I NO THAT CAPCOM HAS 4 IP GAMES IN THE WORKS BUT SQUARE IS A ? WHAT KIND OF GAME DO YOU THINK SQUARE IS BRING TO THE WII U IT BETTER NOT BE A FFGAME WANT IT TO BE A KH 3 GAME

    • Brandon Gardner

      I think Nintendo deserves Kingdom Hearts 3 due to the fact that Nintendo has supported them with their handheld games…. I am thinking a new MegaMan will be released as well…. Hopefully we will get Final Fantasy as well

      • Elem187

        Square will bring Dragon Quest. Capcom will bring Monster Hunter 4.

        Kingdom Hearts was paid for by Sony, so it will remain there until that exclusive deal expires…. Megaman? Sorry, we both know Capcom wont do anymore more than VC titles from that franchise.

        • Brandon Gardner

          How is Kingdom Hearts an exclusive when its coming to the XBox One?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Because half of people who comment don’t research first, or were sure they were right.

      • $41809923

        i’m sick of final fantasy and i heard of a megaman game coming out before wii u ever came out maybe one of the ip games could be a megaman game

        • Brandon Gardner

          I agree as well but Nintendo needs some type of support from 3rd parties to help push and move the system

  • Mochlum

    I hope they do an ND soon that shows off games they didn’t show/barely showed at E3. (Yarn Yoshi, SSTxFE, Mario Party 3DS, Mario Golf 3DS, Mario and Sonic 4, etc.)

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

        To me GTA Peaked with GTA III and Vice City… I have played them since the beginning but after those the game concept got old and repetitive. Some games can be similar and have the classic elements that are still fun to play. To me this was not the case with the Grand Theft Auto Series.

        Other people’s opinions may differ but there are only so many gangsters you can kill and hookers you can pick up before you get bored.

        • thedeciderU

          GTA III and Vice City were amazing games when they released. I bought San Andreas and had a love/hate relationship with it. It got old. Vice City had so much great humor and the city itself was awesome (and the soundtrack!), while III was much darker and serious, and introduced the new open world concept to the masses.

          I have not yet played IV, and I’m not sure if I’ll get V. It’s enticing as hell, though, but I’m not sure I’ll be into the story missions. The mindless killing? Well, yeah.

        • thedeciderU

          to all the people who downvoted Bob – it’s his opinion and he stated it without putting down GTA and without being a fanboy drone. i can’t wait to see the downvotes on this hahaaa bring that shit.

      PC + Wii U = SUPER COMBO!

      • Adrian

        That’s my combo currently, but I plan to add in a PS3 before the end of the year. (I already have a PS3 and 20 ish games, but it broke twice, was fixed twice, and will break again. So I’m not playing any PS3 until I get another one).

        • D.M.T

          If you really think about it, less people own a PS3 or 360 than we think. How many gamers have bought multiple 360s and multiple PS3s because they break? Nintendo consoles don’t break which is why you only have to buy 1.

          • Ducked

            That’s so true, my Wii and GameCube never broke, can’t say the same with my PS2, PS3, and 360…

          • Mario

            Good point. My Nintendo consoles never broke. And from what I heard, the PS3 and Xbox 360 have a long history of breaking.

          • Ducked

            They sure do, the red ring of death on the 360 was horrible. My 3rd Xbox I just traded in. And then my old version of the PS3 had that stupid disc error.

            I think that’s one thing we never credited to Nintendo. They don’t just make games that last, they make consoles that last too.

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

            I have been lucky with my 360 as it has run strong since day one but I did not get the original release and waited for the one with the 65nm chip and HDMI. I also do not enclose my console in a cabinet and let it breathe. That being said I know several that are on their 2nd or 3rd XBOX 360 either due to them breaking or because of a revision/design change. Same with the PS3 as I did not hear of them breaking as much but people bought a new slim one. Nintendo does the same thing with adding colors and design changes but I would have to say that more people bought and stuck with their original Nintendo consoles through the Wii than people did with consoles from Sony or Microsoft over the years. To me that inflates the sales and Nintendo probably has more working Wii’s out there than Microsoft has 360s or Sony has PS3s

          • YayGs
          • Mr. Hobo

            THAT’S RIDICULOUS! Nearly 60% of 360’s broke in ’09. It must have been so much more at launch.

          • DragonSilths

            My Wii U had the Blue Light Of Death. Had to pay $192.25 to get it fixed. So while I didn’t have to buy a new one Nintendos Wii U can break. Though for all the past systems your statement is correct.

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

            When did this happen because if you register your Wii U you get an extra 90 days of warranty basically giving it 6 months. Seeing as the console is only about 8 months old I am just curious when you bought it and why you were charged.

          • DragonSilths

            No when I called Nintendo they said it was my fault so the warrenty didn’t cover it. I tripped on the power cord, Wii U fell off the stand a whole 1 foot off the ground big whoop, blue light of death. If you look it up the blue light has happened to a few people. Its not a big as the RROD was, but the freezing issue can cause it. I did a video about it on youtube, and got back a detailed description from Nintendo when I got it back saying if the system freezes again to send it back to prevent another blue light situation.

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

            DOH…. I guess that would be your fault since it fell…The Wii U does have moving parts and it often doesn’t matter if it is a 1 foot fall or a 10+ foot fall. If there was a disc in the drive that could have been spinning or the jolt could have knocked something loose.

            My brother had the blue light of death but he was just playing Zombie U when it happened. Since it was under 30 days old Nintendo advised that he just return/exchange it which he did. After he got the new one a level 2 tech assisted him with getting his digital purchases and content along with his Nintendo ID transferred over to the new Wii U and they even sent him a new Zombie U game since the other one was stuck in the drive.

    • Elem187

      If Rockstar doesn’t release GTA V on PC or Wii U, I will not be a consumer. I refuse to buy a PS3 or 360.

      • Nintenjoe82

        snap

    • Tecpedz94

      If GTA comes to WiiU u it would be my choice rather than having it on my ps3. The only bummer is the fact that the pro controller while is great, the ZL and ZR triggers in the back are digital not analog so you dont have the option to accelerate or decelerate willingly its just go or stop or on and off unlike the Xbox and Ps3’s lower R and L shoulder buttons where you can control your speed. Hopefully Nintendo will fix that.

      • Nintenjoe82

        it won’t be supported but the Wii U does work with Wii Classic Controllers which have pressure sensitive shoulder buttons…

      • FaTih

        Rockstar already said that it wont come for the wii u. The unannounced game is CoD Ghosts cuz they said “Stay Tuned”

        • Ty J Sides

          yep it has got to be Call of Duty Ghosts, or maybe even Destiny.

      • FaTih

        GTA is a too big game

  • Pikachief

    I feel like I’ve heard this before. What like two or 3 games? And they’ll go multiplatform later? And while announced is a start there’s a good chance we wont be seeing them till 2015. I love the Wii U but I feel like he’s just saying this to calm people down. I’ll stay skeptical until I see how Nintendo’s doing after Christmas. Though with Deus Ex, Rayman, Mario, Donkeykong, Pikmin, W-101, and Zelda, they should be doing great.

  • Nintedward

    I look forward to seeing what they are. Nintendo needs to go out to people like Namco Bandai and make them put Tales of Symphonia HD on Wiiu.

    • Elem187

      Why? Iwata stated they will not pay to have multiplatform games on their console. And I agree. if a third party doesn’t want to put a title on their console, Nintendo as a company should not have to pay for that. I’m srue Sony didn’t pay to have it, so why should Nintendo?

  • Jack5221

    If GTA V can run on PS3 and Xbox 360 then there is no reason why it can not run on Wii U – a more powerful system. Making use of the gamepad while playing GTA could be tricky though…

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

      Could be great for Maps, access to weapons, mission logs/objectives and many more aspects of the game

    • Amz Strange

      True. Aside from maps and sorting inventory, there’s probably not much they could do with it – not without spending lots of time and money porting it and adding extra gamepad features.

      But why do they need to? The makers of Bioshock Infinite and the guys making the new Wolfenstien said they won’t port it because they can’t think of any way to use the gamepad – but who cares? Loads of Wii games suffered because developers tacked-on bad motion controls to games that didn’t need it, the same shouldn’t happen to the Wii U. Just add off-screen play, job done.

    Square Enix, … why haven’t you announced kingdom hearts 3 for the wii u??? nintendo pretty much kept the franchise alive with the 7 year wait between 2-3 along with the 3 year wait between 1 and 2 … why is it that microsoft gets kingdom hearts 3??? they’ve literally done nothing to deserve kingdom hearts 3 since there hasn’t been a single kingdom hearts game on their consoles >_< just pisses me off that the wii u isn't getting this game causing me to buy a piece of shit 4 just for ONE god damn game … FIX THIS!!!!

    • Christopher Acuna

      Truth.

    • cement

      screw kingdome hearts twewy 2!

    • Clel

      We have A LOT of exclusives. Other consoles can have theirs if they have the money to do it.

      • Michael Jurado

        yeah but ive played so many kingdom hearts games on my handhelds i want too see how it ends … if it ends >.> *sighs* i’ll just play something else

    • Elem187

      Well Iwata stated he will not pay for a multiplatform game. So if a game is coming out on a playstation, he wont be willing to pay to bring it over to the Wii U… He’s only willing to money hat exclusives. And I think thats a reasonable policy.

      • Michael Jurado

        right but when that game is kingdom hearts … you know the franchise that helped turn the 3ds around into the profit that it is today you think we would get it especially when the wii u is in dire need of games (according the the public personally i’m happy with the amount of games i have which is 35)

    • bizzy gie

      Just get it on PS4. Then you get the best of both worlds.

      • Ducked

        Yeah I’ll be buying it on PS4 either way, I just think Wii U should get it too.

        • Ace J

          same here

      • Ace J

        yup the division, KH3, and FFXV are the main reasons iam getting a PS4. oh and elder scrolls online

      • Michael Jurado

        i’m not going to get a ps4 for just 1 game NOTHING else they showed at e3 impressed me everything they showed looked like the same old shit. How about the developers step up their game and make the game for all 3 systems that way I don’t have to fork over thousands of dollars between 2 systems, that way i don’t miss out on games. Like the AC series missed all of them up until 3 because now its on my system. *sighs* look i get a system based on how many IPs appeal to me and Nintendo wins that contest by a LONG shot. Therefore i’ll get the Nintendo system but it’s bull shit that i miss out on games just because developers want a quick buck or they are being lazy I shouldn’t have to buy 2 systems just to enjoy 1 game … the developer should develop the game too a true multiplatformer after all THAT IS HIS JOB

        • bizzy gie

          If nothing from Sonyimpressed you at E3, why are getting an Xbox One then?

          All the Xbox One has over the PS4 is TV.

          • Michael Jurado

            i never said i was getting the xbox one o.O I even re read my paragraphs to make sure i didnt lmao dude i dont need a console to watch tv i have a tv for that xD

          • bizzy gie

            Ah.

          • Michael Jurado

            o.O i didn’t say i was getting an xboxone I’m sticking with my usual combo nintendo console + nintendo hand held :D

          • bizzy gie

            Ah.

    • Ducked

      Thank You!

      Square Enix, do you see this?

      • Michael Jurado

        well i’ve done some research as too why it’s not coming to the wii u and it’s the stupidest reason … get this the guy who made KH3 only ported it too xboxone because, it can run direct X 11 while the wii u “can’t play direct x 11 to the fullest and he doesn’t want to do the extra work to port the game” … that is the stupidest thing i’ve heard from a developer especially b/c your franchise Kingdom Hearts sold really well on nintendos handhelds >___<

        • Ducked

          I understand your anger. The developer doesn’t feel like porting it to Wii U because it take a little more time. Yeah talk about lazy. But I think Square Enix has been quiet on a Wii U release is because it’s not selling. I wouldn’t doubt that it won’t come to the Wii U at all, but I think it’s something were have to wait on. I guess they went with the business choice and ignored the Wii U because it would just take more time, if Wii U sales take off after the holiday then hopefully square will take some consideration. Even though the Wii U can’t fully run Direct X 11, hopefully square will see sales within a Wii U release. It does tick me off how nintendo kept them alive with spinoffs like you said earlier. I’ve been a big supporter of Square Enix for years, but if they don’t bring KH3 to the wii u at all, then I’ll be pretty much done with them. I do agree with you, I really hope the wii u doesn’t become another wii. Although the wii u is much closer to the ps4 and xbox one, then the wii was close to the ps3 and 360. So, there is hope.

          • Michael Jurado

            the wii u isn’t even selling bad the xbox 360 and ps3 at the end of their 1st year sold a total of 2.5 million units in 2005~2006 back when the economy in america was awesome …. the 3 months where the wii u was advertised it sold 3.45 million units in 2012 last time i check we americans are in a freaking recession, so to sell more units than your competition did on their first year in a freaking recession should count for something >.>

          • Ducked

            That’s very true, but this is Nintendo. Nintendo always has to do twice as better as the other brands to get the true attention it needs. Developers will always be harder on Nintendo because there a good company in a bad era. I’m sure were see more 3rd party developers so interest in the wii u. I just have a bad feeling about square enix, there slowly being just like EA.

    • Mario

      Just so you know, there are petitions for bringing Kingdom hearts 3 to the WiiU. So if you want, you could sign them. It’s worth a try.

      • Michael Jurado

        i’ve signed it already thanks for the heads up though ^__^

  • D.M.T

    I want GTA 5 and Kingdom Hearts 3 announced. Make it happen!!!!!!!!!!

  • TrueWiiMaster

    Destiny?

  • Jandkas

    Sadly Wii U version of GTA V is unlikely because Western 3rd party developers don’t trust Nintendo, or don’t like them. For example Bethesda, and Rockstar have both completely dismissed Nintendo.

    • Michael Jurado

      i’m honestly done with western games they don’t bring enough game play too me which is why this gen i’m looking more towards the japanese for rpgs and not freaking cinematic scenes -_-

      • Luffy

        i’ve never been in western games in the first place. But there are some really good dev like wayforward!

        • Michael Jurado

          so I just saw a 4 min. trailer for GTA V and guess what no wii u but yet so many features that would have been more smooth on the wii u … again developers being lazy fucks, at this rate i’ll only be happy with capcom and sega as 3rd party support and that my friend is bs

          • Luffy

            i agree. but i know i wont get gta5 on any console since i really dont like these games.
            still, for the people who like these games, it would be nice if they came to wii u.

  • Bobaganoosh

    Hoping for the best. Not holding my breath.

  • Jandkas

    PSA beware of the troll Christopher Johnson

  • Wii Uoops!

    I can’t take my eyes off of Iwata’s face… I’ve never seen that expression before.

  • Linskarmo

    I hope these “key titles” are excellent games.

  • XroyD

    COD Ghosts

    GTA V

    Destiny

    Kingdom Hearts III

    Metal Gear Solid V

    Edit: I have no comment about EA games.

    • Michael Jurado

      EA games can go suck it

      • XroyD

        LOL

    • Chris Heskin

      Call of Duty can suck it, whoa a new dog and some fish. AMAZING

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

        But that new fish ai is like nothing done before

        Oh Wait yes it is

        • XroyD

          Super Duper Next Gen!

    • YayGs

      I seriously doubt Iwata is talking about any game that have already been announced, because why would the developer leave out that they are planning for the game to hit Wii U? The only reason I could think of is that they’ve just barely started to see if it can run on the U.

      • XroyD

        Yes, but, what games could they announce? Maybe the 3rd game from Sega?

        • YayGs

          Maybe, but Sega I’m not sure how much manpower Sega has to be working on another title. I was thinking possibly a game from someone we haven’t heard from in a while.

          • XroyD

            Agree! I just hope they are good 3rd party titles.

    • Amz Strange

      COD Ghosts is possible, it’s on everything else! But BLOPS2 didn’t sell amazingly on Wii U, however, I’d imagine they may give it another shot this xmas with Ghosts, it could happen.

      Fingers crossed for the other four.

      If Nintendo can get these games on Wii U they’ll stand to have a much better xmas 2013 / spring 2014 sales period, that’s for sure! Aside from COD Ghosts, I’d probably buy all of those games!

      I get the feeling Iwata may be talking about smaller eShop games though. The shareholders meeting was about a week ago, and Stranger’s Wrath HD was semi-confirmed yesterday, so he could be talking about that, and a couple of others. Hard to say. I hope there’s some more big AAA games coming though, I really do! GTA V would be epic.

  • Mark Thom

    GTA 5 WOOOOHAAAAA lol

  • Chris Heskin

    Battlefield 4, GTA V and Destiny!

  • Adrian

    I wonder if X will be as good as Xenoblade. Because Xenoblade has been pretty awesome so far!

    • Luffy

      I really think it’s going to be better. Just look at those mechs!

  • Chris Heskin

    damn that’s some articulate ass shit right there. Do us a favor and cancel your internet connection.

  • Yoshi5081

    Well I think they should say what game are coming so ppl may get the Wii U.

    • Stoenk

      He is not allowed. Read the article.

  • $39063977

    indie games? is that it? if mr. Iwata doesn’t have anything of substance to say then he should retire and GET THE HELL OUT of that company. he should be making tremendous efforts to get proper 3rd parties onboard, subsidising developments, and have a wealth of details to share with fans. not to mention he should be seriously thinking of doubling his freaking development teams – cause they are too few too little at the moment. but money out the door is wasted money for them. don’t touch the God damned savings! that’s how much they value the Wii u themselves. they are fine with feeding a couple of fanboys and a bunch of kids with the same old zelda/mario/dk meal, and if 3rd parties feel like coming over then they may join. the Iwata philosophy. WOOOOOHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii | BANG

  • Agent721

    Same article, different day…not this sites fault, but it really shows the lack of games currently out.

  • Ducked

    Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty Ghosts, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, and Kingdom Hearts III!

  • Kris

    I would like to see ET, a remake of the Atari classic on the WII U or perhaps the incredible Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde NES classic!

  • Spike Ashford

    I hope at least one of those third-party games is an RPG of somekind. Like a Tales Of.. game or possibly even a Final Fantasy. I’ve always said that the only thing Nintendo is missing is RPGs. It’s not that they don’t exist, it’s that they’re in shorter supply than good Miiverse posts.

    • Luffy

      i totally agree with you. Probably the main reason I will get a PS4. But then again, the PS3 didn’t have a lot of good rpg either, and xenoblade was better then all of them.

      • Spike Ashford

        I understand where you’re coming from. But I must say that the PS3 has some great RPGs. Valkeria Chronicles, Atelier Rorona, Cross Edge, Disgaea 3. The list is pretty long.

        However, something you are 100% right on is Xenoblade being better than all of them combined.

        • Luffy

          vakyria chronicles is amazing! but its a tactic rpg. i was refering to classic rpg. but your right :)

  • Saikou Braza nii-san

    Hopefully, I mean really I just hope what he means by “3rd party” isnt some more indie games by indie devs coming to the e-shop.

    • Luffy

      if they are good, I do not see the problem in that :P

  • Guest

    Where did my post go? I never broke any rules, I want to see a remake of the Atari classic ET on the Wii-u and I want to see Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (the NES classic) be reborn for this next gen system.

    • Luffy

      rule #1
      never ask for a remake of E.T.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      ….You serious? I’m not making fun of you or anything, but, really? ET? Out of all the things to ask for…….You see, ET is one of the reasons why you NEVER make movie based games, they ALWAYS end up sucking so bad. They’re either extremely easy, or extremely stupid. You REALLY want THIS!

  • 00EpicGamer00

    I hope for 3rd parties, Capcom is working on another Okami. I’d even be happy with an HD remake of the original. The Wii U gamepad is just asking for it.

    • Zakariyya Al-Quran

      LOL

    • Luffy

      or platinum working on a spiritual successor to okami (since the first one was made by the same people, when they where a studio under capcom.

  • DragonSilths

    Just give me Destiny on Wii U that’s all I want. Screw GTA5.

    • NkoSekirei

      i want a tales game for the wii u but no namco has to screw us -_-

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        I don’t think they do it to screw other consumers. Just like other 3rd parties, they’re afraid it won’t sell on Wii U.

        • NkoSekirei

          well tales of symphonia on the gamecube was a success and best of the tales series and i see no problem seeing it fly of the shelf for the wii u

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That may be how you see it, but that’s not how Namco Bandai does. They see the PS3 as the system of choice at the moment. All I can say is, if you want it that bad, then get a PS3. Until they feel the Wii U is worth their time, it’s the only option you have.

          • NkoSekirei

            then wat the hell are they helping nintendo make super smash bros while we get shafted on tales thats my question and namco should know that their are tales gamers on the nintendo system and the only nintendo system that got a tales game last year or earlier this year was tales of abyss on 3ds and im not disagreeing with wat u said but i kind of find it disappointing but the bright side is that we got xenoblade and now X possibly xenoblade sequel which i cant wait to get my hands on

      • Chibi RAWR

        no. the president of Tales series said his games go where the fanbase is at and currently Tales games sell the most on PS consoles more than any other. so thats where tales will be in the future.

      • DragonSilths

        Tales Of Symphonia 3, Wii U Exclusive. Make it happen Namco. That’s all I want from Namco for the entire 8th Gen lol.

  • Chibi RAWR

    well i see 3rd party games here but those are only ones nintendo manged to publish for exclusive 3rd party. otherwise i just see watch dogs and ac4 as the main 3rd party block bosters coming out. o god

    • NkoSekirei

      iwata means unannounced third party games in the works for the wii u not the current ones coming out for the wii u but i do think by next month wen splinter cell and pikmin 3 comes out it should help boost wii u sales up

    The companies make ports and shitty games for the wiiU and then complain they dont profit much from it… I mean zombiU was good but it could be SO MUCH BETTER…. It feels like they had an awesome idea and were just lazy to produce it.

    • Michael Jurado

      actually they weren’t lazy this game was rushed like crazy see once they showed a glimpse of the game pad in action a lot of weight was put on their shoulders and ubisoft crumbled (unfortunately). I still bought it and I loved the game 2 reasons 1. I just came from a vacation that took place the same place zombie u does and they nailed it there are basically 0 guns and a fuck ton of blunt weapons so it made me laugh that i got to swing at a zombie with a cricket bat. and 2. as a survival horror it scared that pants off me especially at night with my friend occasionally bagging on my window xD basically I think the game did bad because when you have games like call of duty and Left for dead where you get to blast away at zombies with nearly infinite ammo people forget about the genre survival horror like the good old days of resident evil 1 and 2 … fucking first person shooters man, they’ve ruined gaming and gamers

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