With the end of the year fast approaching, the consumer website Nielsen has compiled a list of the most anticipated games for this Holiday season across multiple platforms. The list is created by surveying more than 4,800 gamers aged 7 to 54 between August 24th, 2015 and September 19th, 2015. The titles that are included are games that are due for release between October 1st, 2015 and December 31st, 2015.
Here’s the list below:
For Nintendo, the top two listed games are Yoshi’s Woolly World for the Wii U at 91 percent, and Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden for the 3DS at 88 percent. The percentage, Nielsen explains, “represents the overall anticipation level among gamers on each platform, based on a combination of several key measures (including awareness, purchase interest, consumer rating and others). The percent value shown reflects how strong the overall anticipation level is for the title, relative to the pre-release anticipation levels of all previous titles that released on the platform(s)”.
Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, and The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, also all rank highly in the list of anticipated games for the Holiday season. There is however, a notable lack of Xenoblade Chronicles X, which is due for release on the Wii U on December 4th for North America, Europe and Australia.
