    1. What’s weird is… that the article says MK8 is out
      May 29th (for Japan)
      I thought it was out on the 30th…Unless they get it a day earlier. :l

  1. How many years have passed since The Last Guardian announcement? 7? I hope we can see that game this generation. I also want to see more about Hyrule Warriors. Please Nintendo don’t make Tecmo fuck this franchise.

    1. Since 2009, its been in development since 2007 though. I honestly just want SONY to come out and tell us its been cancelled. the wait has been too long and at this point the expectation is way to high.

    1. My heart is breaking for the fact that X isnt there, its a sad thing that shit developer like squareenix gets that much attention there *sigh*

  2. Ok, so I am noticing something here with smash bros, people have been saying that the 3DS version will sell more, but this chart shows that there is more demand for the wii u version. Now this could be 1 of 2 things. One, people really do want the wii u version more, and two, people demand other games more so they voted on other games, but they prefer the 3DS version. Personally, i am hoping it is the first one, because the wii u really needs the help.

    1. How is you bitching at us going to help that? Not like other consoles havs droughs right? Face it. The wiiu is the only console with alot of exclucives. A majority of exclusives are coming out for pc this gen, so deal with it. If it bugs you so much, get a fucking steam box. Whatever you say, a majority of us just prefer nintendo. And its gonna stay that way whether you call us nintendrones or not.

        1. Overpriced? Rehashed? No Online? Mostly Kiddy?
          Like the Gimmick 360 and the Gimmick One?
          No one cares about Nintendo games!?
          No one cares about you!
          You Xbots love to make yourselves cry and get butthurt!

    2. Sasori, learn to write, goddamn noob. And don’t u have anything else to do than to stalk for possibly positive wii u news here and come and troll the crap out of it?
      With that incredibly pathetic skill of expressing yourself with wall of words shot there with a shotgun of bullcrap.
      Wii U rocks btw. Best bang for the buck atm.

  3. Okay, some points of this chart looks weird as fuck: Kingdom Hearts III below MGSV? Don’t get me wrong, I love Metal Gear, but I always thought japanese loved kingdom hearts more?

    Also, Smash Bros below Hyrule Warriors? dafuq!?

    1. That’s because MGSV looks awesome, while KH3 looks like an extremely updated KH2. I personally don’t see it that way, but I’m sure a lot of others do.

      If anything about that list is suspicious, it is that FFXV is the most wanted game in Japan.
