Let me Review Nintendo's 2014 Console Lineup:

  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Will likely only get around 80% on Metacritic, but will likely have at least 4 million sales)
  • Yarn Yoshi (May sell a million or two, will have good reviews.)
  • Super Smash Bros 4 (Will have good reviews and sell at least 7 million)
  • Mario Kart 8 (Will have good reviews and sell to a third of Wii U owners.)
  • X (Could be the FF7 of a new generation.)
  • Bayonetta 2 (Will probably be a critical hit, but not sell much)
  • Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (Will be a huge deal among a niche crowd, likely will become the best seller in console history for at least one of the two franchises.)

Also, some multiplat games

  • Watch Dogs
  • Project Cars
  • Call of Duty 11
  • Skylanders 4

That's already about a dozen major games, and Nintendo is infamous for not announcing stuff until as late as possible. This should easily be the best year for Nintendo console fans since 2010.

There´s still a mysterious new franchise that Miyamoto is currently working on and another mysterious project that Retro started after finishing DKCR:TF. So expect a few more surprises next year.

There are a few third party efforts coming besides those you wrote, too: Lego City Movie, Child of Light, Taiko no Tatsujin WiiU, Formula One
