Splatoon will be a system seller, I expect a major boost, it wont be in the same vein as MK8 unless it has a bundle but it should be pretty significant. There are 3 games that will provide major boosts to the Wii U this year. Zelda, Splatoon and Xenoblade. They all shoot for different demographics and should do well to pull them in. I think a lot of people are underestimating what these 3 games can do.

What is your definition of a major boost? How much do you think Xenoblade and Splatoon are actually going to sell?

Splatoon alone won't sell systems but a price cut + Splatoon + the existing library could do well



Highly doubt it as it's a new ip and those tend to not move consoles without a bunch of advertising. I don't see it selling that well at all either sadly but I will be picking it up day 1 regardless.



It could a legs game -- something that people continually buy just to have a good reason to have WiiU.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

From what I can say, Japan boosted up 10k to me is a major boost because japan. For america 20k more or so, same for Europe with about 15k. We're not all in MK level and its Wii U. Major boosts wont be ps4 destiny boosts. And MK8 is probably the biggest boost we'll see. So I'm going modestly off of that.

People need better standards for the term system seller.



If they market it
M-A-R-K-E-T
Nintendo should be good at that by now. I mean, their mascot has the same first 3 letters as the term



XBOX ONE/Wii U/3DS/PC

I suppose that's reasonable, but people are going to think way more than that when you say major boost.

Watch Dogs, Destiny, Sunset Overdrive??? Are these better standards???



It would be nice if it did, but I doubt it will be a system seller. It`s a new IP on a low selling console with a genre the Wii U audience may not be into. If they market it well, it may do decently, but I don`t think it will be a big system seller. I`ll be buying it though, and would loved to be proven wrong.
