Reggie admits Nintendo failed to create momentum with the Wii U

reggie-wii-u-pic

Despite the strong presentation from Nintendo at this year’s E3, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime admits that the company didn’t do enough to create the momentum needed to push the console properly in 2013. He says it’s something the company is working on, which is obviously true thanks to the presentation we got this year, but that the delay of titles like Pikmin 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD didn’t create the momentum they hoped.

What I would say is that we have been slower than we wanted to be in bringing the key games into the marketplace that leveraged the full functionality of the system.

Just look at the games that we launched over the last nine months. Everything from Super Mario 3D World to Wii Fit U. Let’s include Pikmin 3 in that group. Let’s include Zelda [Wind Waker] in that group. These are all games that we wanted to launch earlier in the system’s life. And because they have not launched early, we have not been able to create the momentum that we wanted.

Pikmin 3 was supposed to be a launch title for the Wii U, but ended up being delayed several times so that it didn’t come out until mid 2013. Wind Waker HD experienced the same delays, which is what Fils-Aime is referring to. Despite these delays, it looks like Nintendo is on track to having a great 2014 year, with the release of Super Smash Bros. on both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, as well as Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, and more.

    I think they failed to create momentum the moment they decided that the Wii was going to be a Standard Definition console.

    • Rinslowe

      That’s not really how history remembers the Wii…
      Just sayin. Although true. It lacked HD. :)

      • Ghasfarost

        Despite what many gamers on its 30s think, the Wii was a revolution indeed and although it did not focused on HD graphics it focused on gameplay and get more people into gaming from the outside population. Which is very hard to convince people to get a 360 or PS3 in their time if they were not into gaming.

        • Rinslowe

          Yeah, fair call. I think the Wii had crazy momentum. Unless we’re now supposed to forget the casual market that bought into it at the time. That would be hard to do, seeing as though it’s already happened. Haha…
          That’s some faulty logic right there. Casuals are gone this gen. So we can’t count them when they counted. Hmmm…

          • David Trail

            Yeah lets forget all the great hardcore games that were on the Wii as well.

            The casuals are on the PS4 and Xbox One. Hence Fifa and COD are the PS4′s and Xbox One’s highest selling games.

          • Arthur Jarret

            Agreed.
            Yet in the meantime I haven’t encountered a single person that is able to explain to me what the difference between a casual game and a hardcore game is.

            It’s usually used like thus:

            Casual game: a game that is bad, has bad gameplay or is not liked by the person using this term.

            Hardcore game: a game that is better than a casual game according to the person using this term

            Casual gamers: a group of gamers the person using this term dislikes, or a group of gamers that likes games the person using this term dislikes.

            Hardcore gamers: Obsessed nerds who spent too much time on a single game in order to win arbitrary tournaments without reward, according to casual gamers, or a person that plays games that are deemed to be good according to the person using this term, or a term of approval usually used in self-reference.

            I don’t think the world is using these words right :P

          • David Trail

            Casual games are short and anyone can play aka Wii sports

            Hardcore challanging/ long/ take skill/ traditional gamers games/ aka Xenoblade Chronicles/ Metroid Prime Tilogy/ Zelda etc.

          • Rinslowe

            My personal opinion of a casual game is something that has almost instant gratification in terms of goals an objectives. Progress that can be quantified in minutes instead of hours. And hours as well if you want to play it that long. But that’s the last point. A game that you play “casually”. Waiting for the train, bus or plane. In the airport or wherever really. A game that you play on the go. Or if you’re just limited on time. Something that is built with those aspects in mind, is to me a casual game.
            Mostly found on Mobile today. But also dedicated handhelds, consoles and PC.

            Hardcore gamers and casual gamers are largely myths, I think. We all play games on multiple platforms of various design, art style and difficulty…

      • RARE

        Haha yeah the Wii did great (which is a sever understatement), but it was a set back in terms of how far Nintendo could jump the next generation.

  • greengecko007

    I swear I’ve seen this article before… Anyways, I can’t say I find this relevant. Talking about how the Wii U failed for most of 2013 while we are currently in the second half of 2014? It’s already been discussed. There’s not much that can be said that hasn’t been said already.

    What’s more relevant is what happens to the Wii U now. It’s in the early stages of a comeback, but we’ll have to see if it succeeds.

  • Rinslowe

    They released the console too early. By about 8 – 10 months looking back at the release schedules. It was development versus some bright sparks in product management no doubt. And how they thought they were on to something in getting a head start on the competition. Riiight… Not this time. Cause the answer was coming from Nintendo since the marketing first started in 2011: It’s all about the games.
    Now that we have hindsight as a guide. None of the next gen games released so far or for PC since Pikmin 3, completely demolishes those first party games from Nintendo to the point where people would have gone “oh my, look how ugly those games are in comparison to everything else”…. Reality has it playing more like those titles looking “OK”, in comparison to everything else.
    Although, again looking back at how it all played out. Nothing say’s under powered better than a handful of late to market ports with performance issues, lol. And a side scrolling Mario game that everyone was hoping was more like SM3DW. Lets be honest. It’s a great game in it’s own right. It has sold nearly 4m copies I think since launch. But it wasn’t the Mario game we were all hoping for. Simple. Wii U sold on hype for 3 months just like the PS4 and then – no games.
    So yeah Reggie. Good to see you’re able to face that one now. Better late than never I suppose. Costly lesson for Nintendo though, imo.
    On the bright side. Their first party offerings have been really top quality gaming. And easy on the eye. Mario Kart is addictive stuff. And there’s a healthy list of titles on the calender and in the pipeline.
    They really had to change things up for E3 and promote big for Kart to succeed in both area’s. If anything they need more of that effort on all high profile releases, all the time…

      • Rinslowe

        Sorry, but your walls may need your immediate attention…
        Those are some stains Dave…
        Priorities mate. Know what I mean?

        • David Trail

          I don’t care. I am moving soon.

          • Rinslowe

            That’s the spirit. Make it someone else’s problem. Guess your new place will be looking like home in no time at all…

          • David Trail

            It isn’t my house, dude!

          • Rinslowe

            But you do live there…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Is that feces? Man you are sick…

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Well, the milking has to land somewhere.

          • Rinslowe

            That is not a mental image fit for the morning…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Did you just have coffee?

          • Rinslowe

            I was trying to. Thanks for asking…
            >:(

        • 2Макс2

          don’t you see? the stains remind 8. it’s a mark for real N-fans ;)

    • MerryBlind .

      Yeah they would have killed it if they would have released it at the same time as X1 and PS4. They would have released hit after hit while X1 and PS4 would have had like 2 games each…

    • Jonathan Robitaille

      There’s really no excuse for the Wii U launch issues because the exact same thing happened to the 3DS a year before. They basically learned nothing. I am not too sure Pikmin 3 or WindWaker HD at launch would have necessarily helped them all that much unless all the other games that came after had dropped in 2013 instead of 2014. A launch with SM3DW, Pikmin 3, WindWakerHD, and ZombiU would have really hit the mark. Would have made the Zelda and Mario fanboys happy. It would have shown the gaming world the Wii U could do hardcore games and what the game pad was about..and Pikmin 3 would have been added value.

      2013 E3 could have shown Mario Kart, DKTF, NSMBU/NSLU for 2013 and X, Zelda U to come out in 2014. You are right, they are close to a year behind. I would think they should have insisted ME come as a trilogy, not accept poorly done EA games, and Rayman Legends remain exclusive. Getting Minecraft would have also been beneficial.

      Seeing all these mistakes it still baffles me people are happy with Iwata. But maybe now that they are caught up they will have finally learned their lesson and there won’t be anymore droughts.

      • Rinslowe

        ME3 was one of the better ports in terms of performance. And the gamepad additions were interesting. Had they as you said, insisted on the Trilogy instead in one affordable package. It would have changed the landscape for that franchise on the platform. It’s possible that 4 would be a Wii U release as well had that happened…

        • Arthur Jarret

          I’ve heard of many bugs and freezes with the game. (Went for the trilogy myself, so cannot be sure).

          So far – the best ports are Need for speed: Most wanted and Deus ex – although neither of these were available for launch.

          Tekken tag tournament 2 and Sonic & Sega all stars racing transformed (post-patch) were excellent.

          The minor detriments to Batman arkham city were outweighed by the use of the gamepad, in my opinion.

          Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s edge was also one I enjoyed, although I have no idea how it compares with the RE versions on Xbox and Playstation.

          Many other games were just sloppy, though. A shame.

          • Rinslowe

            No it was pretty stable. I’ve played most versions of the game…
            So I’m more than certain on that front. Straight Right know the tech behind the gamepad too, which is why they keep getting contracted to do the ports. Most of the major issues in framerate were pretty much present across the board on all console platforms.
            I also agree both Deus Ex and Need for Speed were solid ports.
            And yeah, it’s a combination of things with being sloppy. Ports with unnecessary framerate issues. We know the Wii U CPU can handle pretty much a straight dump. But needs to be optimised to run to spec. But that was perhaps the least of the porting oddities. Even stranger is the missing features both in campaign and online. Sometimes foregoing online altogether. And I say strange because what person or persons in their right mind, doesn’t factor that as a negative selling point. And the biggest issue I had with ports was the price. Premium price for less? What am I? a fckn douche bag? Some people chose to just straight up, reject that crap. But I paid the price asked depending on my personal opinion of the game itself. But I don’t blame anyone that saw it that way and chose no, with their wallets…

  • Jon

    If they want to create more, then do it. Start with the VC even as you can do that right now, stop with the drip releases. Second, they need to stop with the delays. Like, OK, yeah delays are going to happen but these delays seems to be months apart. #rdly, they need to stop teasing things and actually show things. Like, I was excited to see Star Fox but all we got was him playing it on a blurred screen.

    • Will.F. Martinez

      You’re right somethings could be fix now. VC is one of them, idk the process it takes to release them but bringing them in slowly little by little is annoying

      • Ghasfarost

        I don’t find it annoying at all. VC is for us gamers that never got the time/money to play or even know the games of NES, SNES, GBA, etc. back in their days. Having 5 or 10 games weekly just for VC would be overkill and backlogs would be getting really large.

        • Will.F. Martinez

          I guess it’s just me then. I was just hoping they release em series at a time like goldenSun for example. GS 1&2 for the GBA would’ve been nice not just gs1 then wait till they give us gs2. But you’re right it would’ve been over kill for those who are trying to enjoy the first one before moving to the next

    • Rinslowe

      They need a hallelujah focus group. Doing nothing but going through each generation since N64 and picking the most likely candidates for remasters. And then narrowing those down to a few certain winners. And then releasing those beauties. LOL.
      Give me the Prime trilogy with better textures, 1080p and 60fps and I’d lap that up for a pretty penny. Call me crazy. But same goes for Super Mario Sunshine, Pilot Wings (hello gamepad anybody?), 1080 Snowboarding (lets call it 1080p Snowboarding), TLoZ MM, Wave Race 64/ Blue Storm (delux remastered edition) to name a few.
      Then there’s VC in general as you say. Soo much stuff just sitting there, waiting to be rediscovered…

      • Nintenjoe82

        You just written almost every answer I have given to the question: “What do you want Nintendo to announce at ______?”

        I don’t get it, they’ve got MPT and Xenoblade that people are willing to pay full price for 3 years after release but they’ve never seen any sense in HD remakes despite the fact WWHD sold a million and took 6 months to make. I still have a slight hope in my heart that Metroid Prime Trilogy HD with online is being made as some surprise filler between now and Retro’s next big game..

    • David Trail

      • SolarShane13

        Funny you don’t include the third party games you have on the Wii U on the other systems. This is a wrong representation.

        Both piles (X1 and PS4) should be a little bit higher with multiplatform games.

        • David Trail

          I buy third party when I can on Wii U because of the free online, miiverse and off screen play. Only half of these games are third party and 3 of two of them are third party exclusive. The rest are exclusive. I would still have more Nintendo games in the same time period as I do PS4 titles.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I spot a teddybear in the picture. Yours?

            The ironing board is pretty with all those lovely flowers. I wonder if it’s a part of the furniture? With the state of that place, I also wonder if ironing is a priority…?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I think games are the only priority in that place. Sure hope the floor is cleaner than the walls.

            There is much disturbing with that wall paper. What is the brown stuff the sick guy have smeared all over it? Thats just horrible…

          • Rinslowe

            I think it’s fair to say that’s a build of grime. Over an extended period of time. Could also be mold. But it’s grouped around what looks to be a light switch on the left. And that doesn’t usually happen, as it would be one the driest sections of the wall. I’m gonna go with just really filthy.

            Why do u own 2 Wii u’s

          • 00EpicGamer00

            One is for playing on. And the other is his girl friend. I’m sorry, I just had to. XD

          • Ghost8484

            Most of those games came out spreaded apart. Most people played them. I’m talking about delays in the future. Love that gaming collection tho

          • SolarShane13

            Yep, I just wanted to point that out before Xbox and PS4 fanboys bashed you ;)

          • oontz

            You have a pile of 26 games there. What titles do you have?

          • David Trail

            A lot which are not on PS4 and Xbox One. Lets put it that way.

          • Rinslowe

            “I buy third party when I can on Wii U because of the free online, miiverse and off screen play.”
            Valid reasons truth be told.

          • RedRocBoy

            Hellyeah.

        • oontz

          Exactly. The ps4 and xb1 would both be higher if all the 3rd party titles were included as well.

          • SolarShane13

            Thanks!

      • Jason

        You have two GamePads?

        • C4

          You can’t buy a Wii U without one.

          • SolarShane13

            Ebay?

      • MrMindcrime

        So which console is your favorite? :)

        • David Trail

          Guess lol?

          • Daniel Gonzalez
          • David Trail

            Daniel you must have a really poor reading ability, if you think that my favourite console is the Virtual Boy.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “It’s obvious the Wii U is your fave”

            I acknowledged perfectly of what is obviously your fave based on your comments.

            ” this one matches your persona. Have a good night, Davey.”

            Basically, it means that the Virtual Boy matches your persona online. I’m pretty sure you know by now where I was getting at. If you couldn’t comprehend simple English, then it is you who has poor reading ability my friend. Denying otherwise, only makes it more evident.

      • audi lover

        You beat my disc collection by 2 for wii u:( fairplay

      • oontz

        Totally obvious thats your’s and your friends collections combined. Why else would you have two gamepads on the table? You love the wiiu so much you bought two?

        • David Trail

          It is my brothers game pad. We have two Wii U’s but share our games. There just aren’t many interesting PS4 and Xbox One games. Just go in to the shops.

          UFC, Watch Dogs, Thief, COD Ghosts does not interest us one bit.

          • oontz

            “We have two Wii U’s but share our games.”

            Exactly, point proven. Thanks.

          • David Trail

            We play them all though. Why do we not have as many PS4 and Xbox One games? We share them.

        • Nintendoverlord

          the funny thing is when he leaves this house, he will only have 3 games in his collection to post on here cause most of them games are mine, I’m really sick of his trolling now and its even irritating to me cause sometimes he makes me do it as well even though i dont want to.

          • Rinslowe

            That’s pretty sad really…
            Just sayin.

            Between the two of you. There’s no one to look after the place?

          • Nintendoverlord

            considering my father died recently know one really cares any more, whats the point when were just going to die anyway.

        Mother of god.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      This is my mantra. Also I think Reggie should apologize for all his lies. He and Iwata has betrayed all us fans through this generation, and they repeatedly continue to pretend as nothing. Remember the promises from last year about 2014? Everything they said was a lie. How will the promises of 2015 turn out? Likely as lies too. The Wii U project is clearly based on a big lie. This is the reason why no one believes in Nintendo anymore.

      • Ghazbaran

        Good for you.

      • Rinslowe

        That last line is all sorts of interesting. Especially the timing…
        Couldn’t disagree more right now. This time last year, I had my suspicions.
        But it’s a strange thing to assume is universal in any case. lol.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Lol, I dont believe in it myself:)

          • Rinslowe

            Lool…

    • Ghost8484

      I agree with the delay thing 4sho. I know they can push some quality games out faster than what they doing? I truly think that delays is the main thing that’s hurting the wii u right now.

    • JudgeMethos

      They do the drip releases so they can squeeze whatever money out of the property they can. If they release them all at once, I assume they still have the mentality of their games cannibalizing the sales of each other. So, they throw a bone or two and get what sales they can. I agree with you but that’s just how Nintendo is unfortunately.

    • Your money

      Jon, i get your point, but would you want a released game with bugs, and graphical errors, or would you want the game you wanted later?

      • Jon

        it’s not the fact of getting a game with bugs, it is more managing your time better. I’d rather a game announced 3 months later than a game getting delayed by 3 months as you won’t get the disappointment factor and the dying of hype from a “late” game..

  • http://Website.com/ Shane Michaels

    They gathered all the momentum they could; they never had a whole lot, because all things considered, and I’m being honest, Nintendo’s fanbase, accounting for actual fans, and not people who bought a Wii because it seemed like a “fad”, is lower than it seemed to be. Of course, Dull E3s and lack of focus caused whatever momentum they had to just….http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/516980/2009.gif

    There was never a drought for me on my Wii U. This Wii U drought is a myth for me but on my PS4 and Xbox One. The drought is a serious reality.

  • David Trail

    Never once had a drought on Wii U. Look at my PS4/ Xbox One collection after 8/ 9 months

    • Epicstuf

      Jesus!

      • David Trail

        Yep, the drought on PS4 and Xbox One has been torrid.

        • Epicstuf

          A lot of people are missing out on games. And people say the Wii U has no games. And how did you fit all those games on the Wii U local storage?

          • David Trail

            They all fit. That is a myth as well. It only takes up a lot of room if you download big games. Stick to small games and indies and you will be fine. I made the mistake of downloading Wii Party U so now have to buy a new hard drive lol.

          • Epicstuf

            Oh wow.

        • oontz

          Yeah you could have the exact same pile (if not more) on the other two consoles if you bought 3rd party games. Almost all of your wiiu games are crap 3rd party offerings.

          • David Trail

            Not exactly, is Resident Evil Revelations on PS4 and Xbox One?

          • oontz

            Same pile as in the amount of games, not specific titles.

          • Nintendoverlord

            actually if you bought a bunch of third party games on the other consoles all you wuld have is shooter and sport title

          • David Trail

            Monster Hunter: Ultimate is also not on PS4 but a third party title.

    • matthew garcia

      Wow I bet u never get laid

      • Decker Shado

        By that logic, the fact that I have under 10 Wii U titles, and no PS4/XBO games should mean I get laid a lot… but I don’t.

        I’m pretty sure there is no correlation between the two.

        • matthew garcia

          Lol it’s a joke dude. Quit trying to make sense of everything lol

            Lol adults joke more then they play skylanders and amiibos

          • David Trail

            Too bad you don’t. You would probably be mature. Those m rated games haven’t done you any favours mate.

          • matthew garcia

            Like I said before I play eastern and western rpgs, and rts strategy games the most. Sorry if jokes offend you

          • David Trail

            They are not jokes. To me they come across as a form of mental retardation.

          • matthew garcia

            Anybody who thinks everyone has to like Mario is mentally retarded

          • David Trail

            Anyone who doesn’t play Mario because they are insecure is mentally retarded. There is a big difference matey.

          • matthew garcia

            How am I insecure I told u I like Zelda and metroid

          • David Trail

            You only like them because you think they sound cool and mature. Where as Mario you think is kiddy now. Which is wrong.

          • matthew garcia

            I love the puzzle solving and the immersion of zelda. Plus all the cool gadgets you can find to help u get through the dungeons. Really makes the game feel rewarding

          • David Trail

            Try Pushmo, and Captain Toad if you like a good puzzle game and using your noggin.

          • matthew garcia

            Will look into it

          • David Trail

            Pushmo is out now. Friggin love it. Game gets hard really early on. The game makes me feel dumb at times but that is why I like it.

          • oontz

            “The game makes me feel dumb at times”

            Judging by your posts… I can’t imagine that being a difficult goal to accomplish.

          • David Trail

            Says you. If you played more games. Rather than living in a bubble you would understand.

          • oontz

            I play and beat on average 2 to 3 games a month. Try again.

          • David Trail

            I find that hard to believe. Maybe you mean you rush through the levels to get to the ending and then return them to the shop to get your money back. I doubt you actually complete them.

          • oontz

            You can doubt all you want, doesn’t change the fact that it’s true. I love gaming on all platforms, it’s been a passion of mine for over 30 years now. I could not care less if you believe that or not.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Captain Toad was actually very good. I give you that :)

          • oontz

            You are crazy. Did you even read what he wrote?

          • David Trail

            Yes pretty much along the lines of I like Mario. I am too old now though. Which is not true.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            “I like Mario. I am too old now though.”
            You do realize it’s normal for people to grow out of things, yes? People can grow out of games too.

            So are you saying the games you play are the opposite of grown up?

          • David Trail

            No, I didn’t say that did I. I was insulting him by saying that they aren’t grown up games that he is playing. Just because it is ays m on the box.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          “I play Wii Fit U with her and Wii Sport Club and Wii Party U.”

          Hmm…..I’m sensing a bit of sexism in that statement. So, you don’t play legit games with her? Games like Mario 3D World, Mario Kart, or Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze? Hmm…..I’m not saying that I don’t believe you, but if you did have a girl friend, I’m pretty sure you’d be playing other games with her, besides the casual ones. The wording of your comment makes it sound like you only play those three games with her. Nothing else.

          • Arthur Jarret

            Dude – Wii fit U and Wii sports are the best games ever made to play with girlfriends. Things will bounce ‘n stuff.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            My girlfriend actually likes games like Resident Evil and Zombi U more.

          • Arthur Jarret

            But horror games don’t cause her to bounce OR wiggle!

            I prefer when they are not too fond of horror games… it’s more fun to have them play a horror game that way.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            And your statement makes me want to throw up.

        • oontz

          “I have a girlfriend”

          Is that what you call your life size Reggie doll? David Trails body is ready… for Reggie.

          • David Trail

            Just because SONY fans find it hard to pull and usually never get girlfriends. Do not try and make Nintendo fans look bad. We are the people that get all the action. Just give them ago on Wii Sports. They go crazy after that.

          • oontz

            “Do not try and make Nintendo fans look bad. ”

            Not trying to make Nintendo fans look bad, I am one. Just trying to make you look bad cause you’ve painted a picture of yourself as an idiot.

          • David Trail

            You are not a very good Nintendo fan Oontz. Maybe if you had some fair criticism but criticising just for the sack of criticising. We don’t need fans like you.

          • oontz

            “You are not a very good Nintendo fan Oontz.”

            Ha ha, I’ve owned every nintendo console day one, except the 3ds xl, which I just ordered and is arriving tomorrow. There is a big difference between a hardcore nintendo fanboy (you) and a realistic gamer/nintendo supporter (me).

          • Epicstuf

            Wow, SHUT THE FUCK UP.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Why don’t you take your own advice? Besides, it’s obvious you haven’t been here for very long to know who David is and what he’s like. Why are you so protective over him?

          • Epicstuf

            People make mistakes bottom line shut up. Plus, the guy won’t give the guy a break. He is a troll.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Why’d you copy and paste a comment from someone else? “People make mistakes bottom line shut up” was posted by “TheAnimal Fleming.”

            Also, Oontz is NOT the troll here. If anything, it’s David that’s the troll. David is the biggies idiot I’ve ever seen. He constantly brings up the PS4 when it’s not needed. He’s obviously doing it for attention. I think he WANTS people to “yell” at him. I mean you can see it, clear as day. All the comments of him bashing the PS4 for NO reason. On this article and on the Mario Kart toys article. He never actually talks about the Wii U like a normal person. He’s constantly bashing the PS4. In fact, it’s pretty rare to actually see him talk about the Wii U.

        Lmao….just cause he has a lot games. Be real man. That has nothing to do with breaking some chick off.

    • greengecko007

      Nothing wrong with buying practically every game that releases for the Wii U, but it’s curious to see someone who would appear to have a very broad interest in gaming have such a small amount of titles for the PS4 or Xbox One. Then again, seeing the two Wii U gamepads in the picture, I can only assume which company you are more interested in supporting. Again, there’s nothing wrong with that, just making an observation.

      • David Trail

        I buy third parties on Wii U because of the free online, miiverse, game pad and off screen play. Plus Monster Hunter is a third party exclusive which really benefits from free online and the game pad functions/ miiverse. I would still have more games on Wii U with just the exclusives than I do PS4 and Xbox One.

        • CydeFxt

          Speaking of Monster Hunter, any idea what’s going on with Capcom and its shares?

          • David Trail

            Hopefully Nintendo gets Megaman. Even if they just buy the ip. I would like Nintendo to buy them but I also heard Capcom are in tons of debt so Nintendo would inherit that debt.

          • CydeFxt

            Yeah that’s true. But i think Nintendo could handle the debt no?

          • David Trail

            I wouldn’t want to take the risk though to be honest.

          • oontz

            no one can “buy” Capcom. They can buy enough shares in the company to have a majority in Capcom’s decision making. Share holders don’t inherit debt. They only hold shares.

          • Arthur Jarret

            Nothing. They took down their protection against hostile takeover – but unless 51% of shareholders sell their shares to the same company, capcom will remain capcom.

      • 504HotBoy

        That’s not true. I have 31 Wii U games and 6 PS4 games……. http://postimg.org/image/a38gs7031/ But that’s because the Wii U been out longer than PS4. I didn’t buy every single title on Wii U either. There’s a lot of games I ignored. Wii U had the advantage of being out a year earlier, so of course there are going to be more titles to choose from. His reason for having a small amount of PS4 & Xbox One titles. Is the same reason as mine. The system haven’t even been out a year yet, and there is a drought of games. But there are more games coming. I have 3 PS4 games on preorder right now. Which brings my total to 9. I’m going to rack up on PS4 games as they become available. I also have 3 Wii U titles on preorder, which bring my total to 34. I don’t favor one over the other, but I play my Wii U more, because there is more for me to play.

        • greengecko007

          31 actual Wii U games? As in, not virtual console games? That’s quite impressive, and if true, then I would definitely say you have a very broad interest in gaming, and once again find it curious that you would have such a small amount of games for other consoles.

          I understand that the Xbox One and PS4 have only been out a fraction of the time the Wii U has, and would naturally have a smaller game library, but there are quite obviously more than 6 games currently available for either console. I can’t stress enough that there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a lot more Wii U games compared to other consoles, but I am saying that it’s curious to see people that supposedly have such a broad range of interest on one console suddenly have a hard time finding something else to play on another console.

          By comparison, I can only pick out maybe 3 or 4 games currently out on the Xbox One or PS4 that I would like to play, but I also own 7 Wii U games. My interest range in media is more specific.

          • 504HotBoy

            I understand what you’re saying. But there is nothing currently on PS4 that I’m interested in. The 3 games I have preordered. The Last Of Us Remastered, The Evil Within, & Assassin’s Creed Unity isn’t out yet. The other games I plan to buy on PS4, Batman Arkham Knight,The Witcher 3, Bloodborne, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Uncharted 4, Deep Down, etc. aren’t scheduled for release this year. But I will pick them up when available. I have more Wii U games cause I had my Wii U since launch 2012. Also 6 games that I had on my 360, I rebought them on Wii U. Just to do my part in supporting 3rd Party games on the system. Those games were Assassin’s Creed 3, Batman Arkham City, Darksiders 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mass Effect 3 & Ninja Gaiden 3. I could have done the same for my PS4, as I still have Tomb Raider on 360, Rayman Legends , Call Of Duty: Ghost & Assassin’s Creed 4 on Wii U. But chose not to buy games I already own again. Also I don’t buy indie or digital games. I only buy retail physical copies of games. It has to be something that I really interested in to get me to buy a indie or digital purchase. I had my PS4 since launch 2013 and don’t have that many titles as of yet, but I will in due time. I have Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, & Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric on preorder for my Wii U. Will also get Xenoblade Chronicles X, Devil’s Third, Legend Of Zelda, Super Smash Bros., Splatoon, Yoshi’s Wooly World, etc., when they become available.

  • kopaka7

    A great 2014? There are only four worthwhile Nintendo games for the whole year. Mario Kart 8, SSB4, Hyrule Warriors, and Bayonetta 2. The rest of them, like Treasure Tracker and Tropical Freeze, aren’t that worthwhile anyways. Instead of showing like 15 games for 2015, I’d rather they release 5 more games in 2014 so existing owners have something to play.

    • David Trail

      Not true, indie and virtual console games count as well you know.

      I am getting Shovel Knight, Zelda: Hyrule Warriors, Wii Sports Retail, Sonic Boom, Captain Toad, Bayonnetta 2 (Bayonetta included), Smash Bros, One Piece plus many more indie and virtual console games. Don’t be common mate. Broaden your knowledge.

      • kopaka7

        Well yeah I buy some Virtual Console and Indie games as well. But everyone knows Virtual Console is a disaster because Nintendo is lagging behind in the number of titles and platforms from where it was in this point in the Wii’s lifespan. They haven’t even gotten N64 releases two years later. The problem with Captain Toad is that it is a spin-off of a side-quest in Super Mario 3D World, and that limits its audience as opposed to say Galaxy 3. And look, indie games can be great but they never sell systems by themselves.

    • David Trail

      DKC TF not worth while, are you mad?

      • kopaka7

        Yeah, well, Captain Toad is a spin-off of Super Mario 3D World. It can’t possibly sell more than the original game, and that really limits the sales potential of the game. Because it is made by Nintendo EAD as well, it keeps the team from making more broadly appealing games like Super Mario Galaxy 3, which have predecessors with really big install bases. As for DKC TF, it was criticized by numerous publications for difficulty and for not innovating over Returns enough, and difficulty can keep people from playing a game.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          To me, DKC TF was actually pretty easy. In fact, I think it’s easier than Returns. The only things that were hard for me was some of the bosses, but that’s to be expected. Even the rocket and mine cart levels were easier. O.o

          • Jonathan Robitaille

            I will agree with you. I’m on level 5 and it is easier. The bosses do seem tougher though. Then again, I am not trying to 100% each level yet. Did you? Maybe that is where it is more difficult. Honestly, Returns might actually be too hard. I enjoy a challenge but that is about the hardest game I have played and it does negate some of the enjoyment you get because you want to punt your controller. I never did beat it.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            No, I didn’t try to 100% it. I’m not really into that. I agree that’s probably where most of the challenge is. I also agree with Returns being too hard, lol. Let’s just say, a certain mine cart level caused one of my Wii remotes to stop working. In Tropical Freeze I’ve gotten to the final boss, but I have yet to beat him. I tried a couple times but he is REALLY hard. I stopped playing after a couple tries. Haven’t played it since, lol. I might try again some day. I have beaten Return, though….somehow.

          • David Trail

            You know nothing. If you think Jak 2 is the hardest game that you have ever played.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Umm…it’s the hardest in my opinion. Just calm down. I’m not saying it’s Dark Souls hard. I’ve never played Dark Souls, because of it’s difficulty.

          • Jonathan Robitaille

            lol, Country’s mine cart levels are just maddening. I think I actually got fed up a few times and used the cheat to complete levels. When you resort to that you know the game is too hard!!

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I’ve used the cheat so many times in Country. XD

          • David Trail

            Yep, I believe you Mario Hater.

          • oontz

            No one here likes you. You call someone a mario hater because they though a game was easy. Get over yourself. Please go away from this site again, and stay away for longer this time. The last few months without your insane posts and ramblings have been great.

          • David Trail

            They are idiots are talking bs.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Okay, could you please elaborate on how exactly am I an “idiot?” When you’re the one spouting nonsense about me being a “Mario hater.” When in fact, I am not. I don’t like everything with Mario on the cover. I like some of Mario’s games, but not all. I think that’s a pretty good thing to have. That way, I save more money. :)

          • 00EpicGamer00

            *sigh* the kids of today, am I right? You can’t even have a peaceful conversation without them butting in.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Umm…are you mental? This conversation is about Donkey Kong. Not Mario, lol. And since when am I a Mario “hater?” Sure, it’s true I’m not the biggest fan of Mario. I’m not really into the side scrolling ones because there’s so many of them. I like Mario Galaxy or Paper Mario like games. Paper Mario being my favorite (except Sticker Star, of course). <3

            Or, are you perhaps throwing your ridiculous little tantrum, because you can't get past the first level in the first world of DK TF?

    • MerryBlind .

      Sorry but DKC Tropical Freeze IS that worthwhile. That many good exclusive titles is actually a LOT when you think about it. Nintendo can’t do any more than that. The problem is there aren’t enough 3rd party games to fill the gap between those exclusives.

      But like David Trail said, I’m personally fine with indie and virtual games.

      • David Trail

        I am glad UFC is not on Wii U imo most third party games are a disgrace.

        • MerryBlind .

          I buy my 3rd party games on Steam anyway, so I only care about exclusives on Wii U, except if a multiplatform game is significantly better on Wii U because of its unique functionalities.

          • David Trail

            Somebody knows his stuff.

          • MerryBlind .

            XD hopefully I do!

        • oontz

          Thanks for sharing your opinion… funny though that almost all the wiiu games in your picture you’ve posted a million times are 3rd party.

          • David Trail

            half and half. Do you seriously think I would even have that many exclusives on PS4? All they have is Killzone, Infamous and Knack, MLB The Show.

      • kopaka7

        Well because Nintendo has not made proper relations with third parties, it has to make more exclusive games to draw people to the system. It hasn’t even shown some of its best-known franchises, like Metroid, at all for Wii U. And we can’t speculate on the quality of games like Hyrule Warriors or Bayonetta because the way gaming media hypes some games, they separate quality from their observations. Look at Watch Dogs. Critically it was a huge failure because a game that anticipated and delayed for quality and everything should have scored at least 90 metacritic but it was in the low 80s instead. Wonderful 101 had a lot of hype going for it and got pretty dismal ratings for an exclusive.

        • MerryBlind .

          Like I said, they just can’t really do more than that. I mean, they only have so many developers. They can’t develop 20 games at the same time.

          And sure we don’t know yet if HW and Bayo will be any good, but they’re still ‘big releases’ for the system.

          • Rinslowe

            I’m willing to bet, that Bayonetta 2 scores high. And is well received with the average gamer as well.
            Seen enough to know it’s tightly designed, smooth and has all the right kinds of weird to be interesting. Colourful and stylish visuals. Great scope and effects. Plus Bayonetta as a bonus on disc or download.
            If it doesn’t do “well enough”, I’ll be surprised.
            It really has no reason to tank, put it that way…

        • David Trail

          It is a new ip. It did pretty well imo 77% is not bad at all for a new ip.

          • matthew garcia

            Watchdogs is a new up also

          • David Trail

            Watch Dgs is overhyped though. It should have done a lot better.

          • oontz

            Watchdogs is the best selling new franchise in the history of video games.

          • David Trail

            Watch Dogs is on all 5 consoles and pc. I would hope so mate.

          • oontz

            Lots of new multiplat franchises are released that aren’t labeled the best selling of all time.

          • David Trail

            I do not get the point that you are trying to make.

          • oontz

            That doesn’t change the fact it’s a new IP

          • David Trail

            It also doesn’t change the fact that it is a big publisher (ubisoft) game had loads of hype (not as much substance) it is on all console and pc and is even coming to Wii U.

          • oontz

            It STILL doesn’t change the fact it’s a new IP.

          • oontz

            The wonderful 101 has only sold 210K globally, 77% rating or not, those numbers are horrible.

          • David Trail

            Of course the sales are going to be bad. It is a niche game on one console. It scored well though for a brand new ip.

    • Jonathan Robitaille

      DKTF is a masterpiece. Kart is great. Smash looks amazing. Hyrule Warriors gets better looking with every reveal. Shovel Knight is great for what it is. Bayonetta 2 (especially coming with Bayo 1) looks like a must have title. Captain Toad, to me, looks as polished and worthwhile as SM3DW..I really think it will surprise people. Watchdogs hits in the fall as well. Let’s remember that there will probably be another 5 Nintendo Directs so expect an announcement surprise or two from those. I look at all the games on, and coming to the Wii U in 2014 and I can’t believe people actually question the amount of games it has to offer. If those aren’t enough you have way too much time on your hands. Or…what you should do..is get a PS360, PC, or PS4/Xbone and enjoy the multitude of games on those systems.

      • kopaka7

        Yeah, those games are great, but there is too much of a gap between them. Yeah I have MK8, but the next games don’t come out for months.

        • Jonathan Robitaille

          agreed. Shovel Knight and Guacamalee are good offerings toio But yeah, not exactly overwhelming us with game releases are they?

    • Rinslowe

      Whoa there fella. DKCTF not worthwhile? Someones judging a book by it’s side scrolling cover, aren’t they…
      Couldn’t disagree more with that assumption. It’s what platformers are supposed to be like. That and Rayman Legends, NSMBU etc…
      Treasure Tracker might have been a better title as DLC for SM3DW, but I’m letting my playing the game determine that a certainty.

      • kopaka7

        You’re misinterpreting my statement. I’m judging the games by critical reception and sales. Wii U needs big-selling games and many outsiders think side-scrollers are not that interesting. I liked NSMBU, but 3D World was way better. Same with NSMBW and Galaxy 2. I can’t judge Legends yet because I haven’t played it.

        • Rinslowe

          Then you just say “critical reception and sales” aren’t at the same level as …. da da da…
          Worthwhile and those two words have nothing in common. Worthwhile is subjective.

            Well I’m trying to point out marquee titles that are identified with the system. Like an equivalent to Uncharted or Titanfall releasing. Donkey Kong Country isn’t something people today would buy a console for. But they would get a Wii U for a new Mario Kart, a new Zelda, or a new Metroid game.

          • Rinslowe

            That’s cool, but even in the act of pointing out marquee titles does not equate to other titles being “not worthwhile”. One does not define the other.
            But I get where you’re coming from, now. Just the whole worthwhile comment is not connected to those points.
            Just sayin.

      Each to their own. I’m a hell of a lot more interested in treasure tracker than Hyrule Warriors and Smash. I liked Tropical Freeze more than Mario Kart 8 too.

  • SolarShane13

    Doesn’t this sound familiar? It’s even more funnier that Reggie doesn’t include Mario Kart in his list. If Mario Kart would have launched with the Wii U, the Wii U would have sold like hotcakes.

    • MerryBlind .

      The game itself would have also been of lesser quality since they would have had less time to work on it, and less time with the final hardware.

      I don’t understand how people can ask for games like Zelda, Mario Kart, Smash, Halo, Uncharted, or God of War to be available at a system’s launch. Those games are amazing for a reason: they take time and ressources to make. They simply cannot be developed with the same quality we expect from them with only early dev kits.

      There are various reasons the best games of a system come out years after it has launched you know…..

      • David Trail

        NSMBU, Zombi U, Nintendo Land etc was enough for me. It was better than Knack which launched with the PS4.

        • MerryBlind .

          Indeed. There’s a reason they release NSMBU at launch and not 3D World; 3D World is a much more ambitious game and of much higher quality all around. They couldn’t realistically make 3D World ready for launch in the same state we got it today.

          I understand people bitching about the big drought of games in the first half of 2013 though. That really hurted Nintendo. However, I blame Ubisoft for this one; Rayman Legends was supposed to be the exclusive to fill that gap.

          I think people underestimate how big of a back-stab delaying Rayman Legends was for Wii U.

          • David Trail

            I never had a drought. Speak for yourself mate but I had no drought. Now look at my PS4 and Xbox one pile. Before you say Wii U has been out longer. I had more games in the same time period as well.

          • MerryBlind .

            Well I couldn’t know since I only bought my Wii U last Christmas, which I feel was the best time to get one.

            Personally, when looking at the current library of Wii U games, I’m more than satisfied with what has been released and what’s coming, so I don’t understand people who are still complaining about lack of games on the system.

            However, I do understand the complains for the first half of 2013. Sure there might have been some 3rd party games in there, but it was lacking an exclusive, just one.

          • David Trail

            Trolls and idiots who do not know what they are talking about my friend or desperate PS and MS fanboys.

          • MerryBlind .

            Indeed.

          • crocodileman94

            Damn! I only have 15 games. 16 if you count NSLU.

  • Colin Tosh

    I wasn’t aware Wind Waker was delayed. There were rumors that Nintendo held Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 off to spread releases out instead of having a drought but nobody ever implied WW was delayed. As far as I know it was always down for Autumn.

    Donkey Kong was delayed though.

    • kopaka7

      Don’t fall into that trap. Donkey Kong was never delayed. The head of Retro Studios, the game’s developer, actually admitted in an interview that they finished making the game in November and then started on a new title, making it possible for the game to release in December. Nintendo forced the game to be held from release for three months. It’s not like translation was an issue either because Retro is from Texas and games release with delays regularly for different regions.

      • Colin Tosh

        I wasn’t aware of that. Thanks for telling me.

        Honestly I think Nintendo is right to gap releases. It has worked better for my enjoyment on the system overall and it gives the smaller titles a chance to not get drowned by the big ones. I can spend time on each game waiting for the next one rather than playing them all at once.

        And as other comments have pointed out here, waiting until the end of the year for the next batch is making their Xbox and Playstations gather dust.

      • Jonathan Robitaille

        Isn’t that what he said? That Donkey Kong was delayed? It was delayed until 2014. I don’t think he’s saying they delayed it to do more work on it.

        • kopaka7

          Well, he’s in charge of NOA so he has influence on when these things are released, and Reggie chose to hold back a finished game. So the delay is his and Iwata’s fault, basically.

      • Ice Climbers

        Calling it now: the same thing will happen to Captain Toad this holiday. The game will be a February 2015 game.

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Nintendo may be working on building momentum but they’re still not there this year are they?
    DK came in Feb which is OK but then there was a 3 month wait till MK8 from there we’ve’ got another 3 months wait till Hyrule Warriors. After that things get a bit better but what if games get delayed (again) or 2015 follows a similar pattern. Not good :(

    • David Trail

      Play Nes Remix 2, Pushmo, Shovel Knight, 1001 Spikes. There is plenty to play aaa is not always needed imo.

      • MujuraNoKamen

        Those games are great but in terms of building momentum for struggling console they wont do the trick. As great as shovel knight is, it’s going to be AAA games like Project CARS, Xenoblade, Zelda, Bayo etc that get Wii Us sold.

  • Nintendoverlord

    I believe their is more of a drought on the ps4 and x1, at least i jus got shovel knight, pushmo world to play on wii u along with scram kitty, were are the games for ps4 and x1, they dont arrive till october and all they have now is ufc.

  • Leo

    Pikmin 3 was delayed many many times. I recall very well that the game was supposed to be a launch title. It was disappointing when it was delayed over and over again but in the end it was worth it, i loved the game.

    • Jonathan Robitaille

      I think I read somewhere that they were actually developing that for the wii. Maybe someone can confirm that.

      • David Trail

        Yep, it was for the Wii originally.

      • 00EpicGamer00

        Yes, it’s true. Miyamoto first announced Pikmin 3 on July 16, 2008 for the Wii. Later stating at E3 2011 that its development transitioned to the Wii U.

  • majora :D

    Nintendo needs to understand (and I don’t mean this with hate or something) that they will never develop better consoles than Sony or Micro$oft (in specs terms, at least). Those companies have entire divisions working on developing new technology, so it is impossible for the big N to develop a stronger machine. And a console can’t rely on gimmick at all. What Nintendo should do is to focus hard on what they’re good at: great quality games, and release them like there’s no tomorrow. Just imagine this happens at E3 in a few years:

    Reggie: Well, we’re afraid our new console, the Wii U 2, is substantially weaker than the PS5 and the Xbox 2, and it’s also devoid of any gimmicky controller…
    Audience: *awkward silence*
    Reggie: … but we have a new Zelda, a new Metroid, a new StarFox, a new F-Zero, 3 new IPS, a Majora’s Mask remake and they’re all launch titles!
    Audience: *simultaneous orgasm*

    • Jonathan Robitaille

      ‘Nintendo needs to understand (and I don’t mean this with hate or
      something) that they will never develop better consoles than Sony or
      Micro$oft (in specs terms, at least).’

      that’s just not true. In 2012 the Wii U came out. It was more powerful than
      PS360. So Nintendo proved it could make a more powerful console than its
      competition albeit for just a year. I’m pretty sure they also held
      their own in the spec department in the past.

      ‘Those companies have entire divisions working on developing new
      technology, so it is impossible for the big N to develop a stronger machine.’

      as does Nintendo. In fact, Nintendo is actually more specialized in this
      regard than either of them. Nintendo chooses to think outside the box
      and don’t really care about specs. They want a system that is powerful
      enough to showcase the games they want to make. Sony (until recently)
      and Microsoft have involved in the PC business so they actually put less
      thought into their hardware as it tends to be similar to one another
      and just poor man’s gaming PC. Honestly, even a lower end gaming PC is
      more powerful than PS4 and a high end PC bought now is probably already
      more powerful than whatever the PS5 is going to be.

      ‘What Nintendo should do is to focus hard on what they’re good at: great
      quality games, and release them like there’s no tomorrow.’

      Agreed.Though I will say that Nintendo has more IP and exclusives than
      probably the other two combined. It may not be the same type of games
      purchasers of those consoles like but I don’t care about them. I care
      about the Wii U I own and I care if it gets the games I want or not. If
      all I get from 3rd party are Lego, Guacamalee, Project Cars, and Shovel
      Knight..then I will be quite set with games to play. I already have a
      backload and can’t get to them all. I have a 3DS XL and other interests
      so I’m not sure I am ever going to think the Wii U needs more games. It
      did have a drought last spring but that’s over.

    • David Trail

      I beg to differ. I think the Wii U is a better console than PS4 and Xbox One. Power isn’t what matters. Just ask the Wii, PS2, PS1.

      • majora :D

        I mean, in spec terms. A better game library is more important, yes, but I was talking about consoles alone. Also don’t take my comments like I don’t like the Wii U, on the contrary, I love it :)

        • FutureFox

          Why spend the extra dough to build a high-end mouse trap just to prove a point?

    • Denis Ceti

      They allready have created console with better specs.
      ps2 294 mhz cpu
      gamecube 486 mhz cpu
      ps2 147 mhz gpu
      gamecube 162 mhz gpu and the gamecube chips were more advanced as well.

      It’s so difficult reading the comments on the sites these days. Not a single person provide any real information. and most statement are just outright false.

      • David Trail

        Amen, power has never mattered. Why did PS2 get so much support when it was the weakest out of the three back then?

        • oontz

          It was weak only by a small margin, not exactly the same as wiiu vs ps4.

          • Don Tusk

            xbox was about twice as powerful as PS2 though.

          • David Trail

            Wii U is only a small margin as well graphic wise. Mario Kart 8 looks better than most PS4/ Xbox one games.

        so people who know longer make games, people who are forced to make knack instead of last guardian and people who make third person shooters and try to sell them of as adventure titles even though it be more linear than gears o war. Gotch ya.
