Wii U Daily has a wonderful forum community filled with Wii U gamers, so occasionally we like to take the time to highlight some of the activity from the forums on the main page. There has been plenty of whispers about game rumors and even some great guides to setting up your optimal Wii U experience, so be sure and check those out!

If you’re looking for someone to game with you won’t find a finer bunch of Nintendo fans, so why not create an account and join in the discussions yourself?

    Nice setup, is there a Wii U game that fully takes advantage of it?

    • Vriska Serket

      actually pikmin 3 supposedly has some high profile audio support, so theres that, and i would imagine (what little there are) multiplatform games which support audio like that on other consoles would also have it on wii u.

    The Mario Kart link goes to the Yoshi link.

    “Wii U games are just 4% of Ubisoft sales”
    Last 9 Months
    Wii U: 4%
    XBox One: 5%
    PS4: 8%

    PSVITA: 1%
    Wii: 13%

    Considering what they say, Ubisoft must release games only for PS4, Wii and PS3.
    And avoid Xbox One, Wii U and PSVita at all costs.

    We hear a lot that a game is extremely expensive to be ported on Wii U, but honestly, they can’t blame the gamepad or the architecture (which is very usual) for everything. DK Tropical Freeze is a good example of that. If they are releasing a game for Xbox One, use textures with lower resolution (IF NEEDED) and release it online for Wii U. Only journalists and magazines care a lot to use the whole potential of the gamepad for every single game released. It’s part of their job to say “Well, the game is ok on Wii U, but it’s not worth because the gamepad is used only as a map”.

    From Snes, Genesis to Saturn/PSX/3DO it was a huge step.
    Then, PS2, Dreamcast and Gamecube, another huge step.
    PS3, Xbox 360 ? A Great step. No huge as usual, but great.
    Wii ? A great step for a different way to play games.

    But now, PS4, Xone, Wii U…. we can’t see those huge steps anymore. You can see by yourself on youtube: Comparing AC4 in PS4 and Wii U. Looks the same game. PS4 and PS3: Almost the same game. Minimal differences. A lot of people are discussing that “oh my god the graphics on PS4 are sooo much better”, but man, it’s the same. If we don’t put it side by side you won’t see any difference.

    And now they are releasing AC5 for “the Next gen”, which is gonna be the same thing as always, but with improved textures.

    If Nintendo sold the Wii U instead of the gamepad all it had was a Pro controller and a game like Mario or DK for only $149.99 and sold the game pad for $99 as an accessory.. i think it would turn things around for Nintendo. and not only that.. but if they “sold out of gamepads due to demand” i bet anyone wii u would sell out. Of course it wouldn’t be the “Deluxe” anymore.. idk just an Idea. im sure more 3rd party developers would jump on it after they see sales go up since all they care about is numbers..

      It might be better if it were Wii Remote + Classic Controller Pro or Wii Remote + Nunchuck instead, since then the touch screen controls could be simulated by the Wii Remote’s pointer.

    • Kenshin0011

      The gamepad is not the problem and the price isn’t the problem. It’s a lack of marketing and poorly strategic software releases

  • helpo

    Here’s why it’s important:

    Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!


      I agree with everything but voice chat. All you’ll hear is racist,sexist,homophobic slurs.You know I’m right

      • helpo

        sure you are right and thats why their is a mute button so you don’t have to listen to them. Judt like in Cod if you don’t want to hear them anymore or talk to them just mute them. For those people that want to talk to people which their are the cool ones that don’t do that and just have fun with it. And with finding people like that you can build the nintendo community together and always play with that person again bu friending them. But I understand your point, and that is why Mute will be added if this happens thank you

  • smithy501

    Why should they sell there new console for £149.99 when 360 and ps3 are selling for more still. at £239.99 for wind waker bundle is cheap to me for new console.. compared to price of new ps4 and Xbox one …

    • NintendoFan

      A few weeks ago the Nintendoland Premium Pack was £189.99 for a bit

      • smithy501

        Even that’s a good price for new console .. But problem is not the price but lack of marketing on nintendo part and bone idol devs ,!!!!

  • Commander Pikachu

    this is interresting and highly unlikely but apparently titanfall is coming to wii u to coincide with the xbox 360 version
    this article says that nintendo payed EA a TON to get this game
    and says this might be nintendo trying to gain back 3rd parties and have a better relationship with EA
    it also says nintendo wanted to have sales
    Now Why Did Microsoft possible let them do This?
    the article says that Microsoft doesnt see Nintendo as competition(which i sort of agree with they both got different mindsets in there games)

    heres the source also saw it on vgchartz

    i dont know where to suggest this to ashley so ill put it here
    (im still new)

    • Commander Pikachu

      like i said this is higly unlikely but would be amazing if it is true
      and it says EA is gonna announce it this at the end of the month so next week

    • Commander Pikachu

      this also could be an early april fools joke but fingures cross its true

    • Vriska Serket

      This is complete 8ull

      • Commander Pikachu

        yeah thats what i said below

  • Maxid765

    Did I pre-order Mario kart 8?? Of course I did, though I might change my pre-order from Amazon to GameStop because I wanna guarantee that I ave the game day 1 and I DO NOT want to deal with LaserShip.

    • CydeFxt

      I pre-ordered mine at BestBuy….though i will say when i asked if they were doing PO’s, their initial response was no. Truth be told I haven’t seen any advertising for MK8 much.
