Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is it worth getting a Wii U?

I haven't really followed Nintendo announcement lately but I am tempted by a Wii U soon.


Is it worth buying one anymore? Or should I simply wait?

Around the Network

Yes, It does.

Click HERE and be happy 

If you wait until 2017 then there will be no point. Personally, it's been worth it since I got Bayonetta + Smash, and I bought it for Bayo + Zelda.

Currently, yes. Absolutly. It's worth the relatively cheap price and the AMAZING exclusives.
Just watch PLENTY of trailers and reviews for the following games and you will see what I mean :
Bayonetta 2(+1)
Smash U
Pikmin 3
Wind Waker HD
AC IV (multiplats are great too lol)
Rayman Legends
Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze

Zombi U, Mario 3D World ect ect ect ect.

And there's a lot of potentially great retail games such as Splatoon, XCX , Starfox, Fatal Frame , SMT X FE and ZELDA 2016!!!!!!

Actually, watch the last few Directs if you haven't.

If you care immensely about the Wii U's exclusives, including Mario Kart 8, and Smash Wii U, then I strongly recommend one.

By wait do you mean because of the NX?

I expect the NX to be a handheld rather than a home console and even then I don't expect it soon. So if you are interested in the Wii U and want to play the games on it then yeah I'd say it is worth getting. Although that said, it might be worth waiting until after E3 just in case they have a price cut or something planned.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Wait for what, exactly?

Even so, there are many games to check out already:

-Pikmin 3
-Super Mario 3D World
-DKC Tropical Freeze
-Mario Kart 8
-Hyrule Warriors
-Bayonetta 2

Not even counting other releases and upcoming games like Zelda U and Xenoblade Chronicles X. I'd say it's worth it.

If you love Nintendo published games, then hell yea

It has a great library.

Honestly, I would advise that you do what I am doing now. Wait for the inevitable pricecut that will be coming this Year.

Thing is I haven't played a Nintendo console proper since the days of the NES. So I just want to play some Mario stuff honestly and have a console that I can play with more people when they're over.

Does it have BC with the Wii or Gamecube?

By the end of this year you will have:

- Pikmin 3
- Zombie U
- New super Mario/Luigi U
- Wonderfull 101
- Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze
- Zelda: Wind Waker HD
- Hyrule Warriors
- Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
- Mario 3D World
- Bayonetta 2 + 1
- Captain Toad
- Smash Bros 4
- Mario Kart 8
- Kirby Rainbow Curse
- Splatoon
- Mario Maker
- Xenoblade Chronicles X
- Star Fox
- Fatal Frame V
(-And some E3 surprises)

Next year we know for sure that Zelda U and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem are coming too.

All exclusives. If you are interested on some of them go and buy one. I love it.
