Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U 2014 release calender

I made a similar thread recently but in this one I want you to list all the exclusives you think are coming next year and also specify when you think they will release.

Mario & Sonic Olympics-January, a few weeks before the Olympics get underway.

Mario Kart 8-April, conicide with a price cut to $250 and a good way to start off the fiscal year strong.

Super Smash Bros-August, alot of people think this will be the big holiday title but I think it will be a summer release.

Wii Sports U/Zelda U-Nov/Dec, these two titles will be the major holiday releases and are a good combo like Wii had at launch.

Thats 5 titles that have potential to sell over 5 million units and are spaced out every few months.

I think the smaller exclusives that have potential to sell 1-3 million units like Bayonetta 2(Feb), X (June), Yarn Yoshi (July), SMTxFE (Sept), 3rd Sonic exclusive (Oct) will be spaced out evenly in between those bigger selling games. Maybe 1-2 other unknown titles like Kirby or a 3rd party collaboration could appear next year.

if a game sells 3mil it is not a "smaller exclusive", but anyway if Nintendo will cut the price, they have to do this for this holiday imo.

X/Yoshi/SMTxFE have no change in hell to sell more than 1,2mil.

Price cut is definitely coming this holiday season. No way in hell Zelda comes out next year, Smash is the big holiday title for Wii U & 3DS in 2014.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

3 mil is smaller than 5m+, and I said 1-3 million so 1.2 falls within that range. As for price cut, I think they will simply rely on games, marketing and holiday bundles.

Not sure if ur directing that at me but my prediction says they will cut the price 10 months from now, thats pretty far from now.

Instead of nitpicking my guesses, why dont u come up with some of ur own

Games/marketing/bundles are what I think Nintendo is going with this holiday. Also they said Zelda U was able to be shown at E3 but they decided not to, if its in showable form now then its possible it could release 18 months from now. As for Smash, they said it may have a staggered release, so I think Aug for Wii U and Nov for 3DS

Zelda will come out in 2015 at the earliest, although knowing Nintendo and their delays the game will probably come out in 2016.

I think 2014 will stay the same as we know thus far (with obviously some less popular tittles here and there). There are already some really big guns for 2014, that's why I think they will push their other big tittles to 2015 and beyond.
