    1. upcoming? hahahahaha, like mario 3d world, mario kart 8, donkey kong tf? they lack games, just deal with it, nintendo fanboys

      1. not to mention how sonic, donkley kong tf, mario maker, kirby, yoshi, mario 3d world are platformers….. and mario vs donkey kong and toad’s adventure and smash bros also have platforming elements in them. now you say how fps have flooded the market and yet nintendo has far too many platformers on their consoles

        1. At least they all have their own art style, own gameplay elements etc. I can’t say that of fps games. Put them all next to each other and most people can’t even tell the difference.

          1. than you don’t play games, you haven’t heard of borderlands, bioshock, crysis, battlefield, half life 2, mirror’s edge. serious sam, fallout, halo, deus ex, team fortress, portal, wolfenstein, doom


      2. why are you here anyways. This is a Nintendo site. At least Wii U has good games and great exclusives and not just multiplats. And the games that are already out they even said its out on the video. If they weren’t to show what games are out that would make people think there’s not as many games. Mario Kart 8 isn’t a platformer. Xenoblade Chornicles X isn’t a platformer, Smash Bros is a fighting game.. just because it has platforms doesn’t mean its a platformer.. a flat fighting ground would be boring. Bayonetta 2 isn’t a platformer, Hyrule Warriors isn’t a platformer, Kirby isn’t really a platformer in this one, Splatoon isn’t a platformer, and Zelda isn’t a platformer. And XB1 and PS4 are soon and already are getting flooded with shooters. Btw Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze are amazing. Mario Maker is going to be great. Yoshi is going to be great for little kids. Mario vs Donkey Kong.. not exactly a huge game so doesn’t really count. Captain Toad is going to be a lot of fun. There’s almost not a dull moment with Wii U. It has the best exclusives. You can keep your multiplats and EA and shooter.

  1. The moderation in this website is worse than IGN, and that’s saying A LOT. The comments made by people like nostalgiaww is worthy of a ban there. Here?mlet me quote Pokemon: BUT NOTHING HAPPENED!

        1. I understand that you’re trying to edit/delete inappropriate comments, but based on the comments they make later on they’re clearly not affected by it…

            1. Nintendo is my Blood

              That is a new low, even for puppet boy

              I genuinely want to kill him, scum like him do not deserve to live

              Silvershadowfly, please help all of us

              1. Nintendo is my Blood

                Actually I think his name really is Obinna

                Search it, it seems to a be a “Nigerian Igbo” name which Speed Akiote managed to get out of him of YT

                I think whoever said his name was Evan was screwing with us

                I will still track him down all the same

                1. The person who called him “Evan” said she thinks that’s what his name was. She wasn’t entirely sure because he’s basically the school reject that no one cares, listens too, or remembers.
                  Also that person was Selina Ruiz.

            2. People shouldn’t be banned for having different opinions. All because someone doesn’t care about an actor he never knew personally, he deserves to be banned from a Nintendo News site? If I had any moderation power I’d ban ignorant retards like you instead.

              1. He may have been sharing an “opinion” but it was such a disgusting way to do it. He was shitting on the man’s legacy. He could’ve simply said “I didn’t really care for his work.” and left it at that. It’s about respect, dude. We do all have differing opinions, but it’s the respect you show in displaying your OWN opinion as well as the respect you give others opinions.

          1. What’s almost as sad is that numerous people keep replying to them every single time and give them exactly what they want: reactions full of butthurt.
            And then they complain about things getting out of hand when it’s them who let the whole thing happen.

        2. F.Y.I

          In case you havn’t figured it out. Aka Nintendo Commander Quadraxis, Nintendo is my blood, Sasori, ice and at least a dozen others. Reminds me of that Jellybean guy. Same person?

      1. sasori reached the lowest level…
        well, at least he will have his ED article to remember how stupid he has been.

      2. that’s not a surprise, he has been exposing his stupidity since day one and now you have exposed him (again) has the inhuman idiot behind the church of sasori, looks like the ED boys are working so hard to expose him.

              1. Nintendo is my Blood

                Every step he takes, I am one step closer to finding out who he is

                What I know about him so far

                Race: Nigerian Igbo
                Name: Obinna possible Onuorah is his surname
                I have his face of course so that will help my tracking, and by carefully analyzing his videos, I may be able to to find out more about his location

                  1. Nintendo is my Blood

                    He attended a “Nigerian Anniversary Party on the 26/07/2014

                    If we can find out where a party like this occurred, we may know if he lives close by

                    1. does sasori laugh of this?.
                      the kid is so wrong!
                      again: this has nothing to do with Nintendo or the fans, it’s only because sasori has been an ass, he asks respect for his suscribers on youtube and does not show respect for people on this blog. the guy lives in new jersey, loves Nintendo, but following the steps of his lovers -on his wet dreams-: gligar13 and blackb0nd -though he thinks blackb0nd is irrelevant- he makes videos where he bashes the great Nintendo community and this blog.

                    2. Nintendo is my Blood

                      How do you know he lives in New Jersey? I am attempting to cross reference places he has been in order to find out where he lives

                    3. 1.- someone shared a screenshot of his facebook.
                      2.- in one of his videos, one of his suscribers tell him that he can’t believe sasori lives in new jersey, and that he hopes to go to soon.

            1. hello, fag!. nice to see you laughing of your own article.
              sasorideidara obi, the puppet master, clown and destroyer has joined us!. he is happy because he got an artilce on ED.

      1. Devil’s Third, Watch Dogs, Star Fox, and Fatal Frame are all coming out next year. Plus there is a few dozen games already out for the Wii U, (Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, Zombi U, Nintendoland, Wonderful 101, AC 4, Rayman, CoD, etc).

  2. with a grand choice of exclusive games….. yeah not convinced that will attract people. I do believe a HD remix of xenoblade chronicle, last story and pandora tower will be a good way to put more wii U game.

    I moan about how bad Nintendo Uk marketing the Wii U but I think it’s a little bit too late. Most of it is demo from E3 and with No firm date for the 2015, it’s very hard to get excited by it. I would have though devil the third will be in the trailer.

    Also it would not be bad idea to include Watch Dogs just to bring more players and kind of state:” see the wii U can’t play hardcore game (but again we do not have a firm commitment from Ubi to release the Wii U version)”.

    Anyway I really hope Nintendo will have more announcement to make during xmas. 2014 has been really poor again in term of game release…sorry I meant new retail game release cause it not the case for indie and virtual console games.

    My hope is that Bandai-Nancom release a DBZ,tales of , Saint Seiya (hades chapter) and Naruto games. I would not mind if square-enix can release a old good Seiken desnetsu. Capcom a breath of fire and monster hunter 4, megaman legends will also be welcome. I think technical they can do it and it will be a win win situation for everybody.

    1. Everything you said is my dream a new breath of fire would make me cream my jeans even if they just remade 1 2 and 3 in 3d I’d be happy






    1. What? I do agree ps4 has no games that interest me and I ak thinking about returning it. I feel like my pc is better fr gaming than my ps4 bt then again I don’t like fps so that’s maybe why I don’t like my ps4 so much. I will give it a few more days but still..
      Back to my point…

      What are you trying to say?

  4. sasorideidara obi the puppet master clown destroyer

    meh.. this trailer has even failed to interest me. a zelda game,3-5 mario games, clay doll kirby game, a anime hack an slash and a rpg that looks so awuful for the wii u graphics. i can careless for splatoon because i care more black ops 2 and the cod community on wii u. they should put watch dogs and project cars in that trailer.

    1. Nintendo is my Blood

      Selina Ruiz seemed to have given us false info, more signs point to his name being Obinna, than Evan

      I am determined to find this little prick and teach him a lesson since Sickr is obviously failing

      1. sasori is easy to troll, he reacts exactly like the trolls want.
        did you see how easy he exposed himself?, even with selina’s “false” info, sasori ended up giving us his true name, or exactly, accepting that “obinna” is in fact, his name.

  5. Mmmm.. Good but unfiting. I njoyed all the content of the video but the end, where the Wii U logo is formed of game screens. I choose Nintendo because I love quality fun games especially when every one of them has a very own and unique style/gameplay. But the conclusion of the video is not quality fun, it is quantity options.
    And whoever thinks quantity and quality are compatible when it comes to the art of creating video games shouldn’t have a Wii U. If you buy a Wii U you do not do it for graphics, or third party suport, you buy it for the exclusives and the fitting controls that the console provides to them.
    I know Nintendo is in the need of sells, but quantity expressed that way is a cheap and unoriginal move.

  6. So… still no sign of fire emblem VS shin megansei? seriously starting to fear for the people who want to see that happen…

  7. Nice! Just show us the games! Sure, not every game in there is a must have but at least there is about 8 full minutes of games for us to drool over. Well done.

    1. Says the pony who’s vowing revenge on Microsoft for making Rise of the Tomb Raider an Xbox One EXCLUSIVE!

  8. If only we had this trailer when the Wii U debuted and better release dates for these games. As far as X goes it could come out December 2015 for all we know. Don’t show games if they aren’t coming out that year; but WAIT that would mean Nintendo only has 7 games to show per year. This year all Nintendo has had is Smash, Toad Tracker (US) DK, MK8, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta (2nd party) and Wii Sports club. There are other games to fill the gap, but they are mostly Indy’s (very few decent ones) and third parties, which are no where to be found. I don’t mean to complain, but it just seems like games are too far apart. I will always love Nintendo point blank, but I think they rushed the Wii U out; with games WAY to far behind.

  9. We’re gonna have a new episode of COPS! on our hands one someone catches that sasori kid.
    Hope his family isn’t too attached to the idea of him living the rest of his life uncrippled.

  10. Sasori, it must hurt to wake up every morning and look in the mirror to see a heavily bruised Shrek looking back at you. When I see your videos, all I can think of is “Why does Donkey Kong hate nintendo so much”? Word of advice for ya, stop wearing people clothes and get your big red tie on and start embracing being the gorilla you really are instead of “ripping the head off it” to a pale ginger haired anime boy.

  11. Thats a pretty good line up of games so far. Imagine this time next year, we will have a trailer full of completely different games. With games like Zelda, Metroid and Galaxy 3 coming soon you’d be a fool not to own a Wii U. Not to mention we will probably get Luigis Mansion 3, Star Fox (which I dont think they showed) F-Zero, Fire Emblem, and a whole bunch of new I.P.’s. When Nintendos back is against the wall, that is when they are at thier best. Nintendo will be making kick ass triple A games on Wii U at least through 2016. Maybe even through 2017. New hardware reveal in early 2018, maybe late 2017… Im waiting for Arkham Knight on my PS4, but I really believe that once Nintendo starts spitting out games like they did for the 3ds, My Wii U will recieve much more attention this generation.

  12. Hm… Pretty impressive. I’m interested in Bayonetta 2, Splatoon, Hyrule Warriors, Smash Bros, and Zelda U. That’s about it for now. I’m still hoping for Wii U to get 3rd party games because these exclusives (while they are good) just isn’t enough for me. There are currently about 12 third party games I want, so lets hope at least 6 of those will come to Wii U and I’ll be very happy. Here are the games I want: Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Batman Arkham Knight, The Crew, GTAV, The Witcher 3, Destiny, Evolve, Dragon Age: Origins, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, and Mortal Kombat X. It’s unlikely, but it’s still possible, so I will keep my Wii U and keep holding faith that they come. :)
