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

Unless you really like Mario platformers, wait to see what happens with Zelda. There will probably be a Zelda special edition bundle that would be worth getting.

If you don't have a Wii, the choice to get one becomes better (although you would still have to buy Wii motes for the backwards compatibility of older games).

There´s 2 Mario Platformers on the console dude

And a ton of great games that are not Mario or Zelda, Jesus...



I sold mine to get a ps4.
I did not regret it for 1 minute. If you got enough cash, buy it. If you only can afford 1, get ps4



Buy it. There are definitely more than enough games to play for it, and amazing AAA content coming out this year.

Personally, I'd rebuy a Wii U for Xenoblade X if anything happened to my current Wii U.

Xenoblade X will hold you over until Zelda U, no doubt.



Had mine since day one, and love it. If you missed out on that many Generations this is an excellent console to buy. Not sure what offerings they have in Romania on the eShop but I bought all kinds of Mario Virtual Console games from past systems. I love being able to get my Retro gaming on while only having one Nintendo console under my TV.

If you like great fun current gen games. There is no other machine to get.

You will miss out on the generic shooters like new CoD games and Battlefield and games like GTA and obviously the exclusives but they are few and most of them arent that great. I understand if anyone would want a PS4/Xbox to get those games but you will also get games that will never appear on another console Like Smash, Mario Kart, Bayonetta, Donkey Kong Coutry, Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, NSMBU, Wonderful 101, Kirby, Captain Toad, Lego City, Hyrule Warriors and so on. And obviously Zelda and Xenoblade to name a few.

My PS4 is collecting dust, waiting for Uncharted and No Mans Sky (granted I havnt played Bloodbourne yet it is supposed to be awesome), my brothers Xbox has barely been touched but I use my Wii U on a daily basis.



Well, the Wii U is definitely the place to go for local MP. It definitely has the games to verify the purchase, so I guess it's up to you if you want it. You could wait for a price drop maybe.

If you like Nintendo game, yes, if not, no.



I have my Wii U connected at the same time to a PC Monitor for hd games through an hdmi cable, and to a CRT with component cables. I think it is the only console this gen in which you can do that.
I play Wii and Virtual Console games on the CRT with 480i resolution.

I love being able to do that.

Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Smash Bros are enough to make the console worth it.
I have also been playing Wii games on it, I bought Super Mario Galaxy 2 and the Metroid Prime Trilogy digitally, those are 4 highly acclaimed, the first Metroid Prime and Mario Galaxy 2 are among the best games ever with a Metacritic of 97.



If you got the cash just buy every console. They will all have exclusives worth playing.
