In my opinion, Nintendo has a much more interesting line-up than X1 and PS4 combined. Getting tired of all the "lets up the graphics so they look more real" games.


But you aren't tired of the let's make another Mario game and coat it with different paint from Nin? And it's not like ALL the XB1/PS4 has are games that "look more real anyway. But none the less I respect your opinion.

On Topic:

The biggest game coming to the Wii U in 2015 for me is Xenoblade X! I am SUPER hype for that game! Is it bad that I do not care at all about Zelda  U? I feel like I am the only person who doesn't see anything special in that game sadly . But Xenoblade X I can not wait for and I am also looking forward to SNES remix. Still looks like it will be some nice software on the Wii U next year. Heck the Wii U, PS4 and XB1 will ALL be getting a LOT of AMAZING games next year! It will be an all around good year for all gamers!



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Unless Amiibo has Wii Sports effect on Wii U. I don't see 2015 will be better than 2014.



Most Anticipated Games on Wii U

Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Splatoon, Zelda Wii U, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, 3D Metroid game, another 3D Mario game.

Most Anticipated Games on 3DS

Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, Xenoblade Chronicles(N3DS).

Star Fox AND Zelda at the same time? Holy shit, I could not handle that. My wallet would cry tears of blood. I hope there's some space between them. Personally, I think Star Fox is more likely to be delayed than Zelda, because Zelda was already delayed. It was ready to be shown at last year's E3, but they delayed it to this year because Aonuma had a change of heart and redid a huge portion of the game. It'll be shown near completion at E3 2015, and be done with development well before its inevitable Black Friday release. Star Fox is being revived from a nearly dead franchise. Miyamoto isn't going to just shove it out the door, he's going to make sure it's good and ready. It's one of his babies, and he's made it his personal project.



I don't expect Zelda in 2015, but I hope that Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem will make it.

In 2015 I also expect a price drop for the Wii U, so that should be good.

I'm talking ambition in terms of the amount of time, resources, money and manpower it will take to complete. 

Nintendo these days frequently fails to meet its deadlines, and I suspect this will be one such case because of its aforementioned demanding nature.

In that case, the most 'ambitious' (costly) game they have ever made is probably Skyward Sword, and it will probably stay that way.

Zelda will most likely get delayed so I don't think so.

Also I think the Wii U has enough platformers...

Just a small question, but where do people get this "Insert Game" will be delayed from? I mean i hear this alot and based off of no info.

It's based on history, Zelda has a good chance of being delayed.



So far, from the games that have been announced, I'm excpecting at least 4 day-one buys in 2015, maybe 5:

- Zelda
- Xenoblade Chronicles X
- Splatoon
- Devil's Third
- Possibly Star Fox but it depends, I'll have to see something before deciding if it really is a day-one buy material

And there's always the possibility of a surprise unannounced megaton (Metroid?) coming out in 2015.

I'm not usually a day-one buyer these days (used to be when not working allowed me more time to play), so far of my 10-12 Wii U games only MK8 was day-one buy. I'm planning on 5 day-one buys so that pretty much explains how high my expectations for 2015 are. Please Nintendo, don't mess it up with delays...

If I'm not mistaken, I think Nintendo pretty much confirmed Zelda WiiU is their biggest project ever.
