Nintendo game for Wii U reportedly coming, not Star Fox or F-Zero

Fox and Falcon sad 2

According to a tease in the latest issue of Official Nintendo Magazine Nintendo will be announcing a new game for the Wii U soon. The reveal of which will be featured in the April issue of the UK magazine.

The magazine did decide to give us a hint by specifying that the game isn’t going to be a new Star Fox or F-Zero game. Their exact quote was: “OOOOOH! New Wii U game! (And no, it isn’t F-Zero or Star Fox).” Either way this bodes well for the Wii U, which seems to be getting a lot of attention lately what with both this announcement and that of Sonic Boom last week.

Do you all have any ideas as to what game Nintendo might be announcing soon? Is there anything you’d particularly like to see announced? Would you have like to have seen a new F-Zero or Star Fox game? Let us know in the comments!

    I’m sure it’s going to be a mediocre game that nobody cares about…I just have to be honest.

    • Robin K

      Im not getting my hopes up either, but you shouldn’t jump on the “crappy/mediocre” train so early. It sounds interesting though, with a ONM reveal.

      • GregoryTheRainMaker

        We’ll see…I doubt it though….I know that under Iwata ..sometimes Nintendo will put out some great games..though this is on rare circumstances, but on average they like to put out gutter trash that most fans don’t even care about. I’m not going to get hyped until proven wrong.

  • Robin K

    This is good news, im not getting hyped…But good news is allways welcome.

  • Stoenk

    It had a different picture just a few seconds ago

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      I originally had picked a different picture for this article, one I had made myself, but the editor didn’t like it so it got switched out.

      I have to admit, I’m more than a little disappointed about that.

      • Wren Justin Umlauf

        Yeah I liked the other one better

      • Slaanesh_Devotee

        What was the picture of~?

        • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

          The one I made was picture of Captain Falcon and Fox crying, since they’re not getting a new game. I don’t know if that’s the one that was up previously though.

          I made a better quality version of the image though, so Ashley will put that up once she’s done with what she’s doing. So I’m excited about that

  • Nintenjoe82

    This news is so late that you’ve not realised that ONM have reiterated that it is an indie title!

  • Jonathan Grine

    Wasn’t this already found out to be an Indie title?

  • G. Lars

    I don’t see shit. Where on the site does it tease this?

    • MujuraNoKamen

      It was published in the magazine itself, they haven’t posted the news to their site yet :)

  • Daniel Ireland

    We want Metroid! We want Metroid!

    • Skelterz

      WE WANT WE WANT…..Please Understand.

      • Simon Stevens

        :( I understand….. no WAIT! I don’t understand Iwata FUUUUUUUUUUUUU

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Basically how the next Nintendo Direct will start off.

        • Skelterz

          hahahah.

          Followed by this:

          • HungryMetroid

            no, it would be cranky kong

          • Simon Stevens

            Nintendo can be so cruel

        • Magnus Eriksson

          First I want to apologize that we lied to you about the Wii U. Please understand. (Iwata, coming N Direct)

        • WiiUPS4

          Agreed ..That is why i got the PS4 ..I have gotten tired of missing out on good third party games

      • Mayoo

        Please understand that we don’t (Nintendo).

        Example #1: Console-based purchases.
        Example #2: No real good game at Wii U launch. Almost nothing one year later.
        Example #3: Star Fox progression through the years
        Example #4: No achievements (I don’t care, but really a step backwards)
        Example #5: Better ideas would come out if a 4 years old runs the company
        Example #6: Wii Fit Trainer in Smash …
        Example #7: No cinematic in Smash for dumb reason
        Example #8: Cannot send message to Wii U friend without loading 3 minutes worth of apps
        Example #9: I had the most fun in the virtual console so far
        Example #10: Where is Metroid
        Example #11: Where is Zelda U
        Example #12: Where is Star Fox (only in space please)

        • That guy who hates Spike

          What’s wrong with their ideas? They have some good ones, and I’ve been entertained by each one for the past year. Just not as much as I should…

          Wii Fit is one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises of all time. As a matter of fact the Wii Fit series of 3 games have sold more than the entire Kirby series. I think she’s justified her position.

          The Virtual Console is something I don’t understand at all from Nintendo.
          They mentioned nothing of it until 2 months AFTER the Wii U launched, gave us NES and SNES titles for over a year, after saying N64 and GBA games are coming out. Now, DS titles are coming out for the system which makes no sense. I can still buy most DS games at my local EB Games. Why does Nintendo bother to put their resources on porting games I can still get in a snap?
          Then there’s the fact that we have no Sega titles and nowhere outside of Japan has PC VC titles.

          • Simon Stevens

            VC is too expensive, so much so I fear seeing DS, N64 and GC games on there because knowing Nintendo, it’s gonna be £10 for N64 games each, £20 for GC games each and probably £30 for DS games, in the words of the great Yao Ming “fuck dat shit”

          • That guy who hates Spike

            Nah. I think they’re going to stop making VC games fixed for GBA and DS. Look how it’s been on Nintendo’s last two VC platforms (GB and GBC). They vary in price, depending on the content. I think it’s fair to say, that’s the direction Nintendo is going.

          • Simon Stevens

            I sincerely hope so, I hope they start varying there eshop games too, I’m still pissed at paying 13 fiddy for Dr.Luigi! :'(

          • Arthur Jarret

            At least in europe – probably the US too, although that isn’t announced yet, you can download Dr.Mario (NES VC) for free if you bought Dr.Luigi before the 20th this month.

          • Arthur Jarret

            A good thing, too – nobody should pay more than 50 cents for Urban Champions. (Actually – they should add money to your account for downloading it…)

        • Simon Stevens

          x13 NO FLASH PLAYER = NO PORN OUTSIDE OF XHAMSTER HARDLY = NO ANIME DUBBED SITE VIDEOS WORK = THE BROWSER IS A USELESS PIECE OF CRAP = IWATA DESIGNED IT FROM WINDOWS 95, POINT BEING, NINTENDO ISN’T THE PROBLEM, MR IWATA IS, THE OLD DATED FART CLOUD MUST GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, :) we need somebody to come in and turn things round lightning quick, as for Reggie, well….. nice guy but he comes across as a qvc live air salesman to me, let him go back to being better than John Eastwood and actually sell a product, I’d buy an LG anything if he told me to

          • zoohero

            About the anime part. Try kissanime.com i use it all the time. They have dubbed anime in html5 format and if u make an Log In then u can bookmark and make all series load in html5

          • Shota

            i use that site too for my wii u!

          • zoohero

            About the anime part. Try kissanime.com i use it all the time. They have dubbed anime in html5 format and if u make an Log In then u can bookmark and make all series load in html5

          • Simon Stevens

            Thanks :) I’ll check it out, fully believe you
            shouldn’t have to substitute everything though, I understand that Iwata understands that there for everybody else must understand that html5 is the future, only…. it isn’t the now so I see no reason why a shit rich company would gimp out on it after already gimping out on other media functionality, blu ray being a biggie

          • Arthur Jarret

            Pornhub.com works fine, dude.
            I got a hentai site on my wii U that works 100% as well.

            Which crappy sites use flash nowadays anyway?

            And I don’t want the old dated fart cloud to go… who else will power the Xbox One?

            For TV-series, I use couchtuner.eu on wii U – using VK as source, I get (720p) HD (which is the only one that looks decent if my beamer is at max. zoom).

          • Simon Stevens

            Surprisingly too many still use it lol firstrow (football links) being one of them and a few very good and bountiful dubbed anime sites, pretty much anything I find useful, the Wii U has a tablet controller yet there really isn’t anything useful to use it for, Iwata seems pretty dated to me,

          • Arthur Jarret

            Well, at least you got a good porn site and an excellent US tv-show-streaming site now that both work quicker on my wii U than on my PC or laptop.

            Anyway – didn’t apple drop all native flash support too for their devices, forcing all those apple geeks to download an app to view flash content in? I’m not an apple fan, I’m more of a kiwi-nut myself, but that’s what I’ve gathered.

          • Simon Stevens

            my ipod5 has flash :) and i tried them out, very good, thankyou very much, I’m not much of a apple guy though either tbh, android is were it’s at, so flexible

    • Magnus Eriksson

      We want Metroid yes. However this is most likely “Art of Balance”or something like that.

      • Skelterz

        Cooking mama U

        • Mayoo

          Believe it or not, it might actually get out before a Metroid or a StarFox. Hell maybe even before Smash and Zelda U.

          • Skelterz

            damn straight lol.

        • ConCity Soldier

          Lol

        • AkaLink77

          • Captain Falcon

          • AkaLink77

            LOL
            you know us?! XD
            but…you know……
            she’s doing the same old same old…trolling.

      • jjbredesen

        Retro is working on Metroid as we write, they listed to new job positions last month, asking for a UI engineer, and in the discription of the job it says he/her will be making/programming a HUD for a new game, and the only dam Nintendo game that uses a HUD, and that Retro makes is Metroid, i rest my case.

        • Skelterz

          i hope so because i’m a metroid virgin i’ve played bits and bobs here and there but never owned a copy of any of them and never completed one, Also what would you say your game of the year was for 2013.

          • jjbredesen

            Not the last of us XD, i would say either ALBW or 3D World.

          • Skelterz

            You see the reason i asked is because for me it was M3DW but recently i got pikmin 3 and i have to say i’m so impressed by it,
            The visuals the gameplay, its such a refreshing game in contrast to everything you see on other platforms its such a shame it didn’t do great. But yeah for me its a dead tie between pikmin 3 and 3D world.

          • Simon Stevens

            Ditto on that, Pikmin 3, 3D world and Wind waker HD, the top 3 games thus far I have played on Wii U, Pikmin was something else though, they really took that franchise to a whole other level, the atmosphere, the music, the little fellers left behind at the end of a mission, everything was a breath of fresh air, but damn that nagging bitch, she never had enough juice on board, 43 bottles, only enogh for a little while……… man, what a fat little plump apple

          • Skelterz

            Agreed.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Wind Waker was great. However a part of me would have wished it to be released on Virtual Console instead. It didnt need a remake/refresh, it was timeless from before.

          • jjbredesen

            What i wanted was for them to add the dungeons that where cut, because of them almost not making the deadline…

          • Mark LaVerne

            Those dungeons ended up in other Zelda games, so most Zelda fans have already played them.

            Men på den andre siden kunne det greit å få dem som DLC eller noe.

          • jjbredesen

            Yup, når eg tenker over det så har du rett, btw hvor i norge er du fra?

          • Mark LaVerne

            Bergen – dessverre har det ikke regnet så mye i år, så det har vært lite spilling. Krysser fingrene for en dårlig sommer, nå som Bayonetta 2 og Mario Kart 8 er på vei!

          • jjbredesen

            Yup, samme her historisk lite nedbør, har ikkje hatt så lite på 66år og eg bur i sogn of fjordane (Nordfjordeid)

          • Simon Stevens

            I dunno about that, it looked pretty fantastic on my tv, a world above the original, I appreciated it :) just as I did when Okami got a HD facelift on the ps3, still timeless but look even more amazing than they originally did :D

          • thedeciderU

            i’ve been wondering about pikmin 3. haven’t played any of them but 3 seems very appealing.

          • Skelterz

            Its actually solid i have the first one for gamecube but because my job was so demanding when i got home i didn’t have the energy by the time i cam to play it i just fell asleep but i got pikmin 3 and now im hooked its great looking the musics lovely the gameplay is refreshing and it don’t take itself to seriously which is nice there’s a decent amount of challange to it aswell plus there is DLC all in all its a gem that should not be overlooked peace.

          • Daniel Ireland

            I got into Metroid with Super Metroid but honestly, you’re missing out if you don’t go back and check out the Prime Trilogy. It’s well worth it, man.

          • Skelterz

            I’m going to have to at some point.

          • MewThree28

            I hope to do that once i complete the Zelda series. Just finished OoT and just started Majoras Mask

            I’m like Skelterz, but not only with Metroid but with Zelda as well.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Ok, you work my hype up here. But remember, we live in the same country. If you are wrong and hyped me up for no reason I will seek vengeance!

          • jjbredesen

            Funny thing is i am moving to the UK this summer ;)

          • gamer4life

          • Simon Stevens

            So we know that it is in fact, just not very cool at all

          • WiiUPS4

            Been there and it’s cool

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, i was born there so i know ;) Moved to Norway when i was 4.

          • WiiUPS4

            Nice well im sure you will be happy to go back

          • Dom Archibald

            Well you heard it here first…Metroid it is!! And the uk…I’m sorry…

          • jjbredesen

            Whats so bad about the UK?

          • Wildman

            I love it. (Just not the cold, rain, and wind combo)

          • jjbredesen

            Nah, lol i live on the west coast of norway, so we get super cold winters with 4 meters of snow and super snow bilzzards so a little rain and wind will be fine XD

          • Dom Archibald

            Not that much…It’s all good, I’m english anyway and we need all the Wii Us we can get.

          • ENDOT123

            exactly lol they are all shit! haa

          • Mario

            I wouldn’t want to be the one who’s going to get killed by this guy. :)

        • Wren Justin Umlauf

          HUD simply means head-up display. Just about every singe video game has some sort of HUD. Health meters, speedometers, Stamina gauges, all of those are included in the HUD, so it doesn’t have to be a first person game. I do hope Retro is working on another Metroid though. A first person HD Metroid is exactly what the Wii U needs.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, but in DK they had a basic HUD, so if they are hiring a UI engineer, they must be making a more advance one, and the game with the most advance HUD nintendo makes is Metroid.

          • Wren Justin Umlauf

            Well we can hope right?

          • jjbredesen

            Yup, if Retros next game is not Metroid for Wii U (or 3DS) i will insert badass thing here XD

        • DragonSilths

          You didn’t even need to say that. Retro said they were working on Metroid after DKC TF was done anyway.

        • That guy who hates Spike

          In fairness, Retro doesn’t make alot of games.

          • jjbredesen

            lol, thats true, but i am 100% sure we will get metroid before 2016.

        • Konnor Cook

          I really hope Team Ninja is involved in the next Metroid game as well.

          • jjbredesen

            Not to sure about that, i did not really like other M, i think it would be better just to let Retro work on it.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Wii Play U! LOL if it’s that I am going to laugh hysterically. Right now people are looking for reason to buy your console not turn away from it!

        • Magnus Eriksson

          It wasnt when this article was written I think. This is a paraphrase from an older article.

    • abe

      that we do but seeing as retro has been busy i worry this might be an another M type issue

    • jjbredesen

      Sadly the game is a Indie game, so it will not be metroid sorry :(

      • Kyle

        You’re serious?

        • jjbredesen

          Yeah, thats what my source says ;)

          • Kyle

            Sorry to disagree but I think they wouldn’t of said “no Starfox and f-zero” if it was an indie game. I guess we will see how it goes.

          • abe

            i believe this is an old story and it was an indie game

          • CharlesAnderson

            You don’t know the context, so you really can’t say either way. They may have been hoping to scuttle any “Starfox? F-Zero?” talk, as they know it’s neither of those, and the writers are probably big fans of those games as well. But it does not mean it’s a first party game a AAA third party title or an Indie. There’s no way you can know from the context. And yes, I’m guessing, as we all are…

          • jjbredesen
      • MetroidZero

        A 2D platformer?

        • jjbredesen

          Perhaps?

          • MetroidZero

            Could’ve fooled me…

    • Gardevoir Eliz

      Star Fox and F-Zero are saved for E3 reveal. just watch.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Star Fox? Maybe. F-Zero? Less likely.

        • abe

          yeah shingru miyamoto basically laughed off the idea of a new F-Zero.
          personally i’d like to see an game set in the F-Zero universe

    • Emiliano_Zapata

      Really? Key developers of the Metroid Prime Trilogy left Retro to make their own studio called Armature (Arkham Origins Blackgate). So even if they were to make it, the quality would suffer due to those developers not being there anymore, and judging by the scores Blackgate got, those guys seem to have lost their magic

      • Wildman

        Don’t forget that EPIC Games rumor. EPIC and Retro are both working on the next Metroid game. Cliffy B. is a massive Nintendo fan. That’s a possibility. I’m not holding my breath though.

        • abe

          especially since cliffy B. left epic to form his own company

    • Martin_Alexander

      Correction:
      We NEED a new 2D Metroid.

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    We haven’t had a Nintendo Direct going on two months now..lol.

  • Skelterz

    Its an indie game nout to rave about unless yet.

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      I wouldn’t be surprised if it is.

      • Skelterz

        i’m never surprised anymore by nintendo unfortunately, the last thing i was like hang on to was that Hyrule warriors thing but to be fair i think there going to tarnish the zelda name to be honest.

        • GregoryTheRainMaker

          It won’t …it’s not an official Zelda game..it’s a spin off.

          • Skelterz

            No but if you think about it if its a complete stinker of a game then regardless of what anyone says its a zelda game lol like it can only hurt the respect the series has acheived over the years and believe me that would be a shame, but hopefully not i’d like it to be a good game.

          • Skelterz

            Not to you it won’t but there’s alot of different people out there who feel differently, im not saying your wrong but in my opinion whoring out a character from a respected series into a game that for example is a stinker is going to hurt that character in some way and may’be the series only time will tell keep your wig on until then matey ;)

        • abe

          one game cant tarnish 20+ years of good games, hell there was two (or three) terrible CD-I zelda games

          • Skelterz

            Does it escape the realms of possibility that my opinion is going to differ from time to time with everyone elses i wasn’t playing zelda games when the CD-I games came out so it didn’t effect my personal interest in the series also to note who’s to say that people who already hate zelda are not just waiting for this to be a flop so there can be a negative backlash i think they should have held off until we saw a brand new zelda on wii u its just not gunna look good if the games shit there’s nothing to disagree with.

    • Bryan Lewis

      To be honest, I have a feeling its going to be Pier Solar. I have been wrong before but that’s just the feeling I have…

      • Skelterz

        Its cooking mama U

        • Simon Stevens

          didn’t you see the direct?, it’s a wii u version of nintendogs benny

          • Skelterz

            hahahah Wii Fuck U

    • Simon Stevens

      If it is, it better be another mighty switch force or anything by wayforward, and we better still be getting Shantea

      • Skelterz

        never played either my friend but if that’s what you want fingers crossed.

      • GregoryTheRainMaker

        Yes.

    I’ll keep my eye on it.

      Well then my hopes feel down pretty fast…

      • Akatosh

        Not all Indie games are lack luster.

        Look at Cave Story. Genius title.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Never said that, I was just expecting it to be a Nintendo game not an Indie game.

    • Doctors Tardis

      Then I hope it’s A Hat In Time.

  • Andrew Gonzalez

    I read somewhere that it’s just going to be an indie game.

  • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

    Maybe it’s Miyamoto’s new IP at last :)

    • Skelterz

      I do hope that Miyamoto’s IP isn’t just swept under the table like they haven’t spoke if it since they brought it up??

      • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

        Yeah, some one thumbs us down… Bizzy_gie, he’s a Xbot coward and probably wanted revenge but failed XD

        Anyway, I do hope they mention it because it would be so awesome if they announced it as Nintendo’s first true Mature game similar to that of GTA mixed with some Max Payne

        • Skelterz

          To be honest i think whatever he is bringing will be his last original IP so it would be could if he left behind something more mature that could span sequels that younger developers could relate to a bit more, Miyamoto has made fantastic games and is currently training younger dev’s but he’s never been all that great at telling a story what i’d like to see is Miyamoto & Hironobu Sakaguchi team up to make something Not an Rpg though something completely different maybe something to similer to zelda and tomb raider but darker.

  • Wren Justin Umlauf

    Even if it is an indie game, I’m curious as to why they specifically stated it’s not F-Zero or Starfox. Was it just to keep us from getting to hyped about whatever it is? Or maybe it has inspiration from those games?

  • long_dong_donkey_kong

    (crosses fingers)
    Please don’t be Wii Music 2

    • Simon Stevens

      Maybe it’s Wii mars U, so long as the music is nostalgic like Wii street U, I’ll be happy :)

    • Diaz

      Wii Music U

      • TaintedXGamer

        That not a bad idea, but that better not be it. The wii U has more power than it’s predecessor the wii. Motion plus/ wiimote + wasn’t around then, plus we got a gamepad And a better online interface called miiverse. Wiimusic 2/U would be interesting, but we know that’s not what we really hoping 4 isn’t it?

  • beerkin

    I can almost gurantee its not something the fans want. Nintendo,sucks now.

  • iamkjelle

    My rational guess is: Dr. Cranky Kong. However, my gut says something about Metroid which would be awesome!

  • Simon Stevens

    Now is the time to get excited! :D oh wait…. I’m receiving a phone call straight from the boss himself, oh I don’t like the sound of this…… it’s not metroid, now is not the time to be excited :(

  • ActivesiN

    • Doctors Tardis

    Why not Starfox???? Why???? You made me cry :'(

    • Simon Stevens

      I want starfox adventures u :(

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    Well I can understand trying to hype this….Nintendo under Iwata’s control does a really pathetic job of hyping games and currently with marketing…it’s usually up to fans and outside sources to create hype for a Nintendo game.

  • Fierce-Deity Link

    le sigh… if it’s an indie game then meh…

  • Aleks

    It’ll prolly be some woodland animal town sim or some other crap i could not care less about. Hopes are dashed that it is not an F-zero or Starfox installment, but i guess i’m used to that particular disappointment and am not surprised. I can’t help but notice that Metroid was not ruled out. Fingers crossed. (And while i’m hoping, you can make my day by….giving next Metroid to Retro again- since their take was flawless. Give the story to Ridley Scott for an Aliens crossover AND use Sigourney Weavers voice for Samus!)

  • Esskaden

    I think the
    “OOOOOH!” Is a hint
    Michael Jackson Moonwalker U confirmed

  • Luca Invernizzi

    The simple fact that they need to say that is not an F-Zero or Star Fox should make Nintendo rethinks his position…

  • David Flick

    3d Donkey Kong!!

  • RichM

    It’s e-reader functionality for the gamepad…I’m hoping for a Chrono Trigger remake, which means it won’t be.

  • MujuraNoKamen

    I’m lost for ideas as to what it could be. Whatever it is as long as it’s different and not something we’ve had recently (no more side-scrollers, Mario spin-offs, Zelda remakes, or DK for a while yet please) An RPG or a shooter would be interesting but I’m not getting my hopes up.

  • GooN

    Has anybody considered that this is an April Fools Prank?

  • Diaz

    Lets not over hype anything just yet.

    • jjbredesen

      Its just a Indie game ;)

      • Diaz

        Yes, just an indie game. Nothing huge ;)

  • Antonio Jose de Sousa

    They better show something worthy this time (Metroid U). Because if they blow it again like last time (Cranky kong -.-), I don’t gonna give a d*** about any other Nintendo announcement anymore.

    PS: Metroid U

    • jjbredesen

      Nah, sorry its a Indie game :(

    • Skelterz

      You might as well give up then mate a metroid will Either be saved for E3 or hinted at in a direct nothing more nothing less prediction E3 metroid U watch this space.

    • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

      You watched that Nintendo Direct parody, didn’t you ?

      • Anthony Sibilla

        It needs to be a YouTube smash hit xD

  • Maxime Lemieux

    Or maybe we’ll get a little surprise like StarTropics U :D (I bet for a snes remix)

  • Ian Settlemyer

    A new Punch-out game perhaps?

  • Skelterz

    A NEW BODY HARVEST PLEASE.

  • Warren

    The Wii U needs all the games it can get! Especially killer apps that bring in newcomers and show off what the Wii U can do!

  • Skelterz

    Who cares what it is let’s hype donkey kong instead at least we know that its actually coming here i’ll wet your whistle…The second one could be viewed as a spoiler video almost viewer discretion advised.

  • Spookoyo

    How do you become a writer on this site anyway. I feel I could provide better up-to-date data anyway. (It’s an Indie game, by the way)

  • clownshoes1982

    it’s gotta be Metroid.

  • Phoenix Maybe

    New game announcement on April? Seems more like an April Fool’s prank than anything else. You don’t see new games being revealed on magazines anymore.

    • paulthevgking

      they did say it will be revealed before hand

  • Squid

    If I was to guess it was a already existing franchise…
    Metroid
    Earthbound series remakes
    Pokemon RPG.
    Or miyamoto’s new IP

  • Adam Porter

    i don’t think i’m getting carried away again when i say ZELDA THE NEW ZELDA IS FINALLY HERE!!!!

  • paulthevgking

    metroid or new ip

  • Kyle

    Probably a new Metroid. I’m disappointed it is not F-zero but eh, Starfox I do not care for. If it was a small game, then I’m sure they wouldn’t of said “not Starfox or F-Zero”. I feel Metroid, Starfox, and F-zero are the only major franchises, yet to be announced so them canceling the 2 makes Metroid likely.

  • Shane ♓

    I’ve only ever played Super Metroid but, if this is Metroid, I might just have to check it out.

  • Zuxs13

    The new game is Sonic Boom. The magazine just couldn’t say anything about it until after Sega revealed it. Don’t get your hopes up.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      Nope there is announced that it’s an indie title…

      • Zuxs13

        Even more reason to not get excited.

  • paulthevgking

    wait if its the april issue then its a joke

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Guys don’t get too excited! There was already announced that it’s a new indie game. So no Metroid or whatever big game you want to see :(

  • gmanextreme9

    METROID.

  • ConCity Soldier

    Just make a new Star Fox game already. People have been begging for it Nintendo. Get someone else to make it for you if you don’t know what to do with it. Didn’t Platinum Games say they wanted to make it? Get them to make it.

  • Rafael Bernal Cantaluppi

    i can’t believe this is still happening… Maybe iwata doesn’t know but theres something called internet (Wich makes sense since no nintendo games have online multiplayer), and people here screams til tear their throats for a new starfox, metroid and f zero game.

    I would even take a crossover between those 3 franchises if that mean we’ll see fox, C. falcon and samus back in action

  • Evan Laundrie

    Colin stop asking for comments at the end of your articles like people aren’t going to be commenting anyway. That is the chief reason I stopped reading Nintendo Life; it’s annoying and unnecessary.

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      That’s what it says to do in the style guide. Although since it seems that I’m the only one that does it, maybe I should stop? I’ll ask my editors what they think.

      • Evan Laundrie

        I definitely vote for stopping ;) It’s the internet after all, people are going to comment on articles without being told to.

    • Virus6

      Almost EVERY news outlet does this. GoNintendo, NintendoLife, IGN… }
      It’s standard.

      • Evan Laundrie

        It’s stupid, and it’s why I don’t go to the ‘standard’ news outlets. It’s also why I like WiiUDaily, because they don’t do that. People are going to comment, argue, discuss, etc., so why spend a paragraph encouraging it? It’s like telling someone who is going to the bathroom that they should pee in the toilet.

  • Rafael Bernal Cantaluppi

    my guess is fast neo, since they said “indie” title.

  • YoG99

    I want a remake of Super Mario Kart HD (SNES version polished as Windwaker).

  • FutureFox

    Cranky Kong’s Adventure!

    • NatT96™

      I could see something like that happen.

  • Ducked

    No more Mario’s!

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    Funky Barn 2 pls

  • Super Buu

    That was a kick to the stomach.

  • Shota

    it’s indie

  • DragonSilths

    You should update this story. It was teased it is “Indie and Cool” I would guess Minecraft? But I got no clue.

  • Oblivion

    I hope it’s something ‘ReUmagined’.

  • Logan Wayman

    Arise, Wii U Metroid!

  • Virus6

    https://twitter.com/dancroucher/statuses/433346297144152064

    I hope this isn’t what they are talking about. Scram Kitty looks cool, but it’s nothing HUGE and it’s not new. It’s been a thing for a while.

        X}

  • SGTMAR

    I can confirm that it will be Metroid. Not sure if anybody caught Reggie’s Pin at the VGAs last year. That same pin was found in one of the ONM pages from Feb. Metroid will be announced and will come May 2015.

    • Virus6

      Apparently ONM already said it was an indie game (though not in the quote printed above). Not sure if you noticed, but Metroid is HARDLY an indie game

  • Sydney Ultrasyd

    April, that’s so loooong ! But it will be some kind of Nintendo dog U so nevermind

  • Potemkin

    Imagine an announcement of Golden Sun for Wii U *drools*

  • uPadWatcher

    Two words– BAYONETTA 2!

    • Virus6

      Already announced. They wouldn’t announce a game we already have known about for a year.

  • TheBoldman67

    NOOOO!!! Come on, why not Star Fox or F-Zero? These games haven’t seen the light in years, the last F-Zero around the globe was 11 years ago, Star Fox was 8, not counting the 3D remake of 64! I mean, come on. I really think a good Star Fox and all of those games would push systems, and would be much more fresh than a new Metroid or some other game. (Unless it’s new IP, but seriously, I want F-Zero and Star Fox)

  • WiiUPS4

    Metroid..Damn it! We want Metroid!

    • AkaLink77

      But that would mean Nintendo actually listening to their fans!
      D:
      So no, it wont happen. ;/

      • WiiUPS4

        Have to wait and see i quess..but it might just happen

    • SP-937-215

      Are you sure about that? Because Other M.

      • WiiUPS4

        We pretend that game was never made

        • SP-937-215

          It’s over there, right next to Jar Jar Binks and the FF7 spinoffs.

          • WiiUPS4

            Agreed!

    • Virus6

      I’d rather have a Star Fox or F-Zero before Metroid. For Christ’s sake, we had 4 iterations of Samus on Wii if you include Prime Trilogy. Bring something different.

  • Jon Neale

    Onm would not be allowed to leak the new game until Nintendo have told the world so I imagine we will get our long awaited and dam it I’ve been waiting for it DIRECT. but as in true Nintendo style I won’t get my hopes up as they will probably announce something crap and leaving me crying into my hands.

  • Tom Greene

    It better be a new Metroid announcement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! …not by Team Ninja: Boooooo….Retro Studios: Yaaaaaaaay

  • Eduardo

    Prime 4

  • legendofrob1

    I want a new star fo-

    oh wait.

  • MewThree28

    I have a feeling it would be Paper Mario

  • Josie the Sketcher

    *Being sarcastic* I hope it’s a One Direction or a Justin Bieber game. LMAO! Dear god I hope not. That would be one of the worst things Nintendo would release EVER!!!

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Lol, Justin Beiber the video game. xD
      Story line: Help (or not help) Justin escape from prison before the Nintenpolice catch him. Guards would be Mario, Link and Pikachu (Pikachu would act like the guard dog. Since he has VERY good hearing.) Lol, come on Nintendo, make this happen! (…please don’t O.O)

  • Daniel Schwarz

    Interesting that they didn’t say “it isn’t F-Zero or Star Fox or Metroid.” Maybe, just maybe, Metroid then?

    • Virus6

      What about Punch-Out!!? Or Kid Icarus? Ice Climber? Hell, Clu Clu Land? There’s more leaning towards something we’ve not thought about than Metroid

      • Daniel Schwarz

        Kirby? Yoshi? Zelda? Yes, there are a lot of Nintendo IPs. However, the three that are clamored for the most these days are F-Zero, Star Fox and Metroid. It is for this reason that I find it odd that ONM made it clear that the new game wouldn’t be a Star Fox or F-Zero game, but didn’t mention that it’s not Metroid. That’s all.

  • Ricky__Spanish

    Just another shitty indie game

  • Jonathan Dogey

    It may be the big huge Zelda game. But also, Nintendo could be announcing yet another mario game. I wouldn’t be surprised. Mario Galaxy 3 sounds Iike a very safe idea, but also, Zelda Wind Waker HD has shown that Nintendo is starting a possible trend of re releasing classics with a great new look. Perhaps Mario 64U?

  • SP-937-215

    I wish for an Eternal Darkness sequel. I expect some sort of Just Dance Mario Mix U Please Understand with Wii U Vitality Sensor. Then I will hang my head and think positive about Nintendo anyway like a good little fanboy bitch. Sigh.

    • Virus6

      If you wanted an Eternal Darkness sequel, you should have paid attention when Shadow of the Eternals was announced and attempted crowd-sourcing. It was even made by the same group of people.

      • SP-937-215

        I saw it. And I was disappointed that it failed epically. But if you paid attention to what was going on behind the scenes with that team, it was easy to see that the game was probably not destined for greatness anyway. A quality sequel is going to need some serious backing from Nintendo. But, just imagine what it would be like. What kind of crazy mind tricks could they perform with the Wii U hardware? Anyway, Nintendo’s trademark for the IP is about to expire again and I’ve got my fingers crossed.

  • mr mcgoo

    Wave Race!!

  • leo

    Sounds like a Zelda . The definition of “NEW” game varies… but, I swear if it’s another freaking Donkey Kong game All hell is going to break loose! I just don’t get it , releasing a new Star fox/F-zero would boost sales a ton. They NEED to make at least one of those 2 this generation. Hell maybe retro will surprise with a new metroid but, i’m doubtful

  • Joseph

    It sucks that I don’t have a wii u because I live in a country where the wii u has never officially been released.

  • brian murphy

    walmart has a zelda game listed for the wii u 6/1/2014 yarn yoshi 10/1/2014

    • Virus6

      Hyrule Warriors is probably what Walmart is thinking. Besides, they just make up dates so you’ll put your money down, even if the date isn’t correct.

      • brian murphy

        i know the dates change but usually walmart lists games before there announced there bad about posting games there going to sell sometimes before the general public is supposed to know of the game

  • Josh111111

    It’s going to be the first game in their “quality of life” line. Something along the lines of Brain Age. It’s going to be something nobody is expecting. None of of obvious choices.

  • kahn

    Everyone wants metroid and I’m just hoping for an awesome new IP

  • James Belnap

    Why the hell aren’t they making a Starfox game?! It’s been 8 years!

  • Eva Amore

    Star Fox U! NOW. We’ve been asking for a new console Star Fox game for years. There is no excuse to not be working on it.

  • Forbsz

    Oh my god what could it be I get hyped so easily by nintendo hope it’s miyamotos new ip!!!!!

  • joey t

    POKEMON console RPG!!!!! ughhh if only Nintendo wanted to sell more Wii Us then XB1 and PS4 combined…… :( cause that’d do it. But we’ll probably get something lame, come on Nintendo give us something crazy good!

  • RyuNoHadouken

    Flappy Bird U

  • Arthur Jarret

    Will the new IP miyamoto is working on finally be announced?
    I’m actually hoping for a Star Falcon game – where Falco ditches the weak, needy, nagging, barrel-roll-demanding and daddy-issue-having team-mates and kicks ass throughout Lylat.

  • TaintedXGamer

    Star Fox *U*niverse, metroid wii u, f-zero U, pokemon stadium U, kid icarus U, Kirby U, SMG3U……Nintendo….Are you listening? .-. ………… whatever you do guys please at least listen to your loyal user base! In the meantime, back to other M.

  • Kirbyomega

    Shiggy’s new title?

  • mully1999

    Elite Dangerous I heard.

  • Dennis Jelonnek

    This is old info. ONM has already confirmed that they meant an indie game.

    • Rai_TheNoblesse

      if it’s only an indie game, why would they compare with two (big) franchises like F-Zero and Star Fox?…. it should be something bigger..

      (if it is an indie game, then that announce was probably prepared by Reggie-fils… he can be that “dumb”, and to make us hope for nothing…)

  • InterTreble

    Metroid Prime 4 would be a real next gen FPS on Wii U, and the clear demonstration that Nintendo is not only for casual and kids, as haters, trolls and competitors are always telling everywhere.

    • Rai_TheNoblesse

      man, hope it is Metroid Prime 4… that would save Reggie-Fils face, since it would be the “hint” at the VGX (his Samus pin, besides Link…)..

      but truthfully, after games like Dead Space, Halo 4, Fallout 3/NV ect.., Metroid might have a tough standing… (and they have to make it fresher than MP3, which is imo the “worst” of the Trilogy when looking at it’s rivals of the time..)

      • InterTreble

        True also what you wrote! ;) I didn’t like Prime 3 at all, to tell you the truth… BUT… I do think what Zombi U showed at very beginning of the Wii U life was really promising. Yes, it’s a survival horror, but the first person perspective added to the master use of the GamePad could/should/would be improved by a new Metroid episode, expanding its potentialities… This is why a new MP4 has all the weapons to be the best FPS ever. Of course, challenging other great masterpieces appeared in the meanwhile… ;)

        • Rai_TheNoblesse

          ZombiU had the potential to become a hit franshise…, even if had a room for improvment .. and had a bad start (due to the lame cover, bad PR and stupid metacores, of reviewers wanting a COD shooter like game and not a surivival game.. just how the f@ck could Outlast PC have a higher metascore than ZombiU?… even if Outlast is cool..)

          still big time p1ssed at Ubisoft (and Nintendo) for not pushing the ZombiU franchise (they should see the potential of it…)

          while MP4 should a lot of potential too… (the Padscreen could be used to move the morph ball, by tilting the badscreen as if the ball were on it.., or/and like you hinted as “Scan Visor” or “Radar” elemenets like from ZU or MPrime…)

          imo, the new Metroid should not only have a great porotion of “exotic planet surfaces, caves, ruine” explortion, but also a nice portion of “thrill/suspension” like during the first minuntes of Metroidd Prime…, maybe even a bit of “horror”..

          it has to feel fresher than the last Primes..(MP4 should bring as many new features/ideas as the first Metroid Prime did back than on the NGC…, they should have had enough time to collect/evolve ideas since the last Prime…bringing MP1-3 “so close” to each other made them too similar, now MP4 has had enough time to grow.. ..but has had some tough rivals in the meantime……)

          -.-‘ think, I might have too high hopes for MP4…

          looking forward to it too, as it will be the first Prime using “two analog sticks” for the movement/straving/aiming

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    Probably Metroid or Paper Mario.

    • Rai_TheNoblesse

      Paper Mario is probably the only other Mario game I’d forgive Nintendo bring out on the Wii U… (since it already has enough “Mario” games.., but a good Paper Mario would be cool…, like during the SNES/N64 times…)

      • Boo3DarkBoo

        Paper Mario 64 is the first Paper Mario I play and maybe the better.

  • Daniel Passament

    Why can’t we just get more footage and information about X by Monolith Soft.

  • xTrucho3

    No Star Fox nor F-Zero :/ so maybe Metroid ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/brent.mccardell Brent McCardell

    For once I hope WHATEVER it is, it releases relatively soon. Nintendo is in no shape for announcing a game that’s a year and a half away, or worse yet, not giving a release date at all…

    • Rai_TheNoblesse

      they should announce a release “year” for Zelda U..

      (it seems was aimed for the end of 2013, then pushed back for the end of 2015???…so they thru Zelda WW HD & Hyrule Warriors as “income” to finance Zelda U, the “most expensive Nintendo game ever”, taking 5 years to develop,. getting high hopes for the game…..)
