Nintendo has outlined its release schedule for next year. While none of the big games have been tied down with a precise date, the Kyoto based company says that Wii U titles Splatoon, Mario Maker, Yoshi’s Woolly World and Project Guard will be coming to the United States and Europe during the first half of 2015. The company also revealed that Code Name STEAM and Fossil Fighters Frontier will be coming 2015 for the Nintendo 3DS.
We already heard earlier today that Captain Toad is still on track for release this year and will be coming to North America on December 5th. However, we also found out that Amiibo support won’t be coming until sometime in 2015. Captain Toad is coming out exclusively on Wii U on December 5th in North America and 2015 in Europe.
“The game will also support select amiibo figures in 2015.”
The very same person that previously predicted Devil’s Third on Wii U, and Pokémon ORAS claims that he has learned that Nintendo is working on another remastered title. Nico says that it’s the perfect game to fill the gap in Nintendo’s release schedule for 2015. He also claims Nintendo will have one game per month during 2015.
You’re gonna love it, but it’s a Remaster. It’s perfect to fill gaps inthe line-up. Really, Big N [Nintendo] will have one game per month in 2015.
The next massive sci-fi role-playing game from Monolith Soft, the creators of Baten Kaitos and Xenoblade Chronicles, comes exclusively to Wii U. A terrible intergalactic war leaves just a handful of Earth survivors trying to live in a beautiful yet hostile environment. Players engage in battles against powerful creatures of all forms and sizes using the deep battle system that builds on the triumphs of Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii.
- Riding and controlling a weaponized mech, players can explore every inch of the massive open world displayed in gorgeous high-definition graphics. The world is filled with strange and imaginative creatures, from small bugs to giant dinosaurs.
- As characters improve in different classes, they will learn new combat and defensive skills, or Arts. Players can customize the Arts palette as their characters learn new Arts. All Arts have a “recast” time – once cast, the player must wait out a “cooldown” period before that Art can be used again.
- Players can customize everything about the main character’s appearance, including gender, shapes, height, skin color, voice and tattoos.
Nintendo shared new information regarding the next Zelda title for Wii U. As we’ve already reported the game is open world and has been a dream of Aonuma’s for quite some time. The new Zelda game world is open and connected, which means your game now begins when you decide where to go. Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata says that the highly anticipated game launches 2015.
Independent developers BGG Productions and BioGamer Girl have announced that their JRPG-inspired Death’s Apprentice for PC will be coming to consoles.
