Total: 9 + x

 

As we can see, every year had at least 8 First Party Wii U Games. My question is now: How many Wii U First Party Games do you think we will see in 2017?

 

I expect around 12. We will most likely see the new Retro game, a new Animal Crossing, a new Pikmin, a new game from EPD Tokyo, Project Giant Robot, a new Metroid, a Pokemon game and a few surprises.

Lego City Undercover, The Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Fatal Frame V and Devil's Third are First-Party-games now?

Didn't know that Nintendo bought TT Games, Platinum Games, Koei Tecmo and Valhalla Game Studios. So Nintendo now produces for all platforms? That's nice of them!

  • TT Games = Lego Marvel's Avengers, Lego Star Wars: TFA (PC, PS3, PS4, 360, XBO, Vita)
  • Platinum Games = Scalebound (XBO), Nier: Automata (PS4), TMNT (PC, PS3, PS4, 360, XBO), MGR:R (Android)
  • Koei Tecmo = Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 (PS4, Vita), Toukiden 2 (PS3, PS4, Vita)
  • Valhalla Game Studios = Devil's Third Online (PC)

voted 8, but I think it will be way less than that.

Fixed your "first party games", TW101 and Bayo2 are funded but Nintendo didn't have anything to do in the development, I did count Fatal Frame since Nintendo did work on the game while probably most of the work was made by Koei Tecmo, I also didn't count SFZ since it was 100% made by Platinum Games while Project Guard was probably made by Nintendo since it is one of Miyamoto's tech demos... Also I have no idea who worked on Pokémon Rumble  but, even if Game Freak isn't a First Party team I'll still count it...

My prediction is 0 to 2



Why is the minimum 8? LOL.

I love my Wii U, but lets be real here,

I expect no Wii U First Party games. I do think we may get 1-2 Wii U / NX games. (Zelda U + Another game)

PS: I wouldn't include Mini Mario & Friends in that list

They will somehow have so many games and still launch a console in holiday 2017.

Nintendo magic.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Voted 17 or more, just for the heck of it. It's fun to have all these threads, though!



0-4.

You really think 8 first party games is the minimum?



Maybe two or three. Possibly none. Even if the NX isn't out in 2016, we're still most likely looking at a drought. Most of the games you listed have already been more or less confirmed to be either a) not yet in development, or b) headed to the NX.

Nintendo hasn't started any new Wii U projects since the end of 2014. What we're seeing now are the games that were started well before E3 2015.

If you had limited hands and were planning on launching a console in the next 7-20 months, where would most of your attention be?

I want a graceful exit for the Wii U as well. Realistically, that means we might have a small handful of games we don't know about yet. Honestly, that could be a very small number.
