CVG Hints Wii U Will Make A 3DS Style Comeback

wii_u_console_and_controller

Rob Crossley, one of the writers over at CVG, has hinted that the Wii U will make a Nintendo 3DS style comeback in the coming year. Sources close to Crossley have told him that Nintendo will be releasing a number of significant Wii U titles this holiday season. However, he says that he needs to obtain more details from his source to give a better explanation. Here’s what he had to say on CVG.

“Which brings me to the Wii U. Regulars at CVG might be aware that I talk down the console’s chances in the most definitive language possible whenever asked. Well, from the things I’m hearing, there’s a chance I’ll soon be added to the reject bin of crazy talking twitter twonks pretty soon.”

“Hopefully, if we obtain further details from our sources, we’ll be in a position to explain more to you soon. But, for now, put it this way: In the past two years there have been moments of disquiet regarding the 3DS and – like an instant magic trick – Nintendo has put an end to this with sudden reveals of significant games that went on to become star performers at Christmas.”

    1. I’m pretty sure most rational people expect this. Once those big Nintendo titles start streaming out (Smash, Mario Kart, Mario Party, 3D Mario, etc.) the Wii U will definitely pick up in sales.

        1. It’s been announced for the Wii U and 3DS. Plus, to make things sweeter they will integrate cross play functionality, similar to how Monster Hunter 3 for both 3DS and Wii U work. Hurry up summer!!!!!!

          1. Whoa whoa whoa, hold your horses there.
            Yes, a version was announced for both 3DS and Wii U, but the whole cross-play thing is just speculation thus far.
            Unless you’ve got a source that says otherwise?

  1. This will happen this year,no doubt what so ever.The list of games we all ready know of and for sure nintendo have big surprises in store.No chance am buying ps4 not this year anyway be needing my money for them big wii u titles coming.

  2. The Wii U will probably double its sales from 1 system per week, to 2 systems per week! Talk about progress Nintendo!

    1. It is wise to respect those that came before you youngman. For as I studied in my twlight years, a great man humbles himself and respects the meek forces. For the wise are calm and boast not, but leave it to heaven.

  3. Great, but you know who matters?
    THE PUBLIC!
    Tell us, show us the games and plans, seeing as we’re the ones who’ll make the system successful.

  4. Where is our Wii U update?
    I have been waiting for hours ( keep in mind that I live in Germany so I am 6 hours ahead the U.S)
    I WANT IT!!!

    Anyway. This is very good news!

        1. They’re getting Soul Sacrifice among a few other games for the Vita, but other than those, I don’t think Sony has much. Their big PS4 reveal basically showed off what the system is capable of. They showed a short screen of third-party companies that they’ve supposedly got making games for them, but few games to support the list.

          This E3 is going to be a huge knock-down-drag-out of games between Sony and Nintendo.
          They’ve both shown their next-gen and now their respective fan-bases want to see the games that are going to convince them to buy the systems.
          Nintendo will likely show some really nice third but mostly huge-hitting 1st, while Sony will likely be focused almost solely on third-party.

        1. Actually, you probably should of stated “home console” and not just “console”. Console can still refer to handhelds.

  5. This is a pleasant surprise. A journalist that actually has something positive to say about the Wii U. We spend a lot of time ripping people to shreds over dooming the Wii U, so I have to take my hat off to this guy for going against the popular grain and posting the truth.

    Personally, I think that people in the know that have an bias against Nintendo know at least a little something about what they are hiding in the closest and they are SCARED TO DEATH from it. That’s why they spend so much time bashing the Wii U.

    Cheers for this guy though.

  6. splinter cell blacklist, retro studios game,yoshi yarn,3d mario,mario kart u,monolith soft with X,watchdogs, assasins creed black flag,myamoto new ip, pikmin 3,wonderfull 101,bayonetta 2,next level games secret project.

    do i need to say more peeps? and there will be a lot more games we don’t know any thing about. i gonna be broke, so the ps4 or xbox8 have to wait!!

    1. Yes we will. The spotlight is on them though so they have to produce. Nintendo backed themselves unnecessarily into a corner with an atrocious E3 last year and with botching the Wii U launch. Things however have slowly but surely started to turn around for the Wii U and it is gaining momentum.

      Detractors are running out of excuses. They have done everything they could to sabotage the Wii U is and it is still here. Now it is time for Nintendo to release the Spirit Bomb.

  7. Of course it will make a comeback. It is still new and has not had enough time to get big games. It is odd when people think a system is a failure based on launches. Wait until the whole life span of a console is done then judge.

  8. What I hate is everyone thinks the Next X Box and PS4 will do so amazingly well out the gate. Remember the PS3 launch? It was a joke. The 360 did a bit better since it had some games, but still. What i’m trying to say is that they will all sell, just like the DS and Wii, PS3 and 360 (after price cuts) and 3Ds (also after price cut)
    I just think too many people are trying to make out like the PS4 and NextBox will just destroy the Wii U just because they will have some superior specs.

  9. Dam nintendo created a monster by the looks of it competition Wont have nothing on wii u.
    Nintendo is actually listening to all the feedback on miiverse and there making a diff.
    I bet by the time ps4 is out the wii u is going to do everything ps4 can do but better minus the graphics but then again graphics don’t make a console great gameplay does and that’s what nintendo is all about.
    To be honest I kinda feel bad for Sony I hope ps4 does ok as for the next box I hope it fails

  10. I hope so. The Wii U library still hasn’t wowed me which is why I’m holding out on it. Hopefully that will change at E3.

  11. ive played a wii u before and the first words that left my mouth was,”Nintendo wasted alot of money on this crappy piece of shit so i think wii u will be over in 2020. Plus it takes the activeness out of the wii. 3DS is supierior to Wii Poo. Signed Y’s Demon
