WiiU Direct promises gamers a slew of titles for this year as well as a huge update to the WiiU system this Spring. I’ll do my best to break it down for y’all but truthfully I’m more excited about the Zelda titles, and the updates than any of the other games.
Finally the Virtual Console will be launching classic games for the WiiU just after the Spring software update hits. A few notable items are:
- Not all Virtual Console titles from Wii/3DS will be available right away
- If you’ve already purchased the title on VC, you can purchase the WiiU “HD” version for a discounted Price shown below
- Nintendo will be doing a Virtual Console trials until July (the Famicom anniversary). Each month they will release a game for $.30 to try, this month Balloon Fight is available immediately.
Nintendo announced a good amount of titles for this year for the WiiU. Take into account that the announced titles may or may not launch this year but they are in development. A new Yoshi title will be released, and is being developed by the team that developed Kirby’s Epic Yarn.
Nintendo also announced the development of Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem.
Aside from these Nintendo also announced that no new titles will be arriving in January or February, and asked for gamers patience as they are “establishing a good line up of quality software.” Nintendo has development running on the following games, and we should see many of them this year.
- Super Smash Brothers
- Pikmin 3
- Mario Kart U
- Lego City: Undercover
- Game and Wario
- Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
- WiiFit U
- Wonderful 101
