Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Will Wii Party U be a bigger smash hit than Pikmin 3 has been?

First chance to see if casuals really did leave Nintendo. Plus the controller is always a nice plus as well.



 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

Have you been drinking again dude? :P

Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say a ground-up Wii U Zelda won't release in 2014. (Hyrule Warriors doesn't count)
Bet with fatslob: I say Watch Dogs Wii U will be technically inferior to the 360/PS3 versions according to Digital Foundry.
Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say Monolith Soft's X won't release in 2014.

Wii Party U is going to be like Wii Play- complete and utter trash, lambasted by gamers and critics alike... but casuals will flock to it. This crap will likely sell more than Pikmin 3.

Human contact, the final frontier.

With the WiiMote? Almost certainly.

Idk because it has the Wii Remote Plus and the stand with the game for only $50.  If the game gets good reviews I could see this selling really well, not only among casuals but some hardcore too just because of the amazing value.

Casuals didn't leave Nintendo. Nintendo left the casuals.

And Wii U party is a birdman game, so the answer to the OP should be obvious.



I LOVE ICELAND!

is a joke thread?



Of course it will sell more than Pikmin 3, it is a Wiimote+ with a free game

Pikmin 3 was not a smash hit. But yeah, I can see Wii Party U selling really well. The bundled Wiimote is a great incentive to buy the game but frankly this is more than just a value-for-money thing: Packing a Wiimote in there signals a return to the Wii philosophy to customers - easy to get into, low entry price, multiplayer focused, open for everyone. Did anyone else get the impression that Nintendo is moving away from advertising the gamepad? (None of the holiday games actually need it.)

I hope you're right about Nintendo and the gamepad.

the gamepad was a disaster.

If it doesn`t do better than Pikmin 3 it will really be surprising.
With the holidays coming it will surely sell a lot!
