Which is a good window for Nintendo but there will still be other Wii U releases.

Pokken Fighters
SMT x Fire Emblem
Mario & Sonic Rio Olympics
Mario Tennis (delayed to 2016)
Super NES Remix
Diddy Kong Racing U (Retro Studios)
Legend of Zelda (also for NX)
Paper Mario U

Would be a decent year.

Yup, maybe an extra game or two (I'm still hoping for Animal Crossing) and 2016 doesn't look all that bleak. Then we'd get about 1 big retail game per month. That would be much better than 2015 actually . If that's the 2016 line-up, I won't have a problem investing in NX after I'm done playing those games.

Holiday 2016 at the earliest, and it may just be March 2017. Anyways, that's leaves 'em enough time to "satisfy WiiU owner" in my opinion.

I think Nintendo will do something with the Wii U-NX to ease the transition. Like maybe Wii U owners get a free game when they purchase an NX. That would go a long way to easing any bitterness. At some point too, I think Wii U owners have to grow up a little bit. Nintendo is a business and has to do what's best for the company.

Writing off an entire fiscal year, not being able to make dividend payments to stockholders, missing your profit targets, having your stock price suffer just so a group of Nintendo fans who are stomping their feet and insisting on no new hardware until they get their Animal Crossing and Metroid just isn't a sane way to run a business. 

Nintendo needs NX out quickly so it can start an upturn in revenue and profit for Nintendo, and new hardware takes time to build momentum too (the first 6 months is usually a write off), so it would be more like Nintendo writing off two full fiscal years if they don't launch NX soon.

Correction, EAD has been working on The Legend of Zelda HD since 2011-2012.



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

nintendo is  not just a business, they are 100 years+ old.  they know that the things you suggested are stupid in the long run.

if you plan for more than 10 years than quality and the satisfection of your costumers is more important than dividend payments or stock prices.

Games like Nintendogs and Wii Sports are dead so I want expect new ones at all, and Yoshi’s Island Maker doesn't seem realistic at all.


The most recent Nintendogs sold over 3 million, much lower than the original but still very strong sales for a $40 pet simulator. We don't really know how well a new Wii Sports game would sell, Wii Sports Club wasn't a new entry, it was literally an HD remaster of the first one. A Wii Sports 3 on an appealing device could sell well, definitely not nearly as well as the first 2 installments but a few million wouldn't be impossible.

True about Nintendogs, but Wii Sports had only purpose and popularity with motion controls with casual players in Wii era. Wii U prove that Wii Sports franchise is dead, fact that Wii Sports Club is a HD remaster dont change anything, its probably worst selling Nintendo game for Wii U.

I would love returning of Pilot Wings, but more like a Pilot Wings N64 game not this recent ones that forced motion controls.

I really think that Diddy Kong Racing is now NX launch title.



Nintendo should have 3rd party collaboration if Nintendo's own dev team are mostly focusing on NX. And those 3rd party collaboration deals should already started development for the games slated for late 2016 and the whole 2017.

We all know as of right now, there aren't any big games slated for late 2016 and 2017 besides Zelda U.

For me, i just normally look Wii games and buy older games.
