    Still no comments yet? I guess everyone’s playing WWHD and SM3DW and such.

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year[‘s Direct]!!!

    • Relick

      Damn right I am.

    • Vinicius

      Yes! My little cousins freaked out with SM3DW and Ninty Land! Awesome games for family and christmas.. By the way, Happy christmas Ashley and everybody else! πŸ™‚

      Speaking of merriment; I just read this, Minecraft may be coming to Wii U which sounds great I’d love to try it and the touchscreen would work great for inventory management. It could end up as nothing it could come true though:

    • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

      Or maybe celebrating with family and friends ?

      So my family was coming over for Christmas at last minute. I was not going to buy anything for my Wii U, maybe Ghosts. I used up $100 on Luigi controller and Super Mario 3D World to entertain my cousins. I NEVER EVER would have bought it. It was not on my radar since I am not such a Mario fan to cough up $60. I can say it’s fun playing it with family members, bur the no online doesn’t give me replay value after unlocking everything. It does to other people, just not me. I am debating whether selling it to get my money back or keeping it for future family time.

  • WarioForever

  • dr00id

  • Random12multi

    Heads up guy’s I think Nintendo’s servers are down

  • uPadWatcher

    My favorite Nintendo game this year is Super Mario 3D World. Nintendo Entertainment Analysis & Development (EAD) Tokyo have done an excellent job on delivering HD (scaled full HD), improved game play mechanics and overall fun. An outstanding sequel to the Nintendo 3DS original 3D Land. I’m glad that Super Mario 3D World for the U is Game of the Year. Merry Christmas, everyone!

  • Random12multi

    Confirmed there servers are down Update: Nintendo Eshop has crashed in both Nourth America and Japan Please Upvote to inform the community the crash was believed to be because of pokebank as it has been removed from the eshop

    • Shota

      wii u update coming?

      • Mickey Mouse

        I wish it was – I’m still getting hangs in the OS home menu and in games, even after the last update was applied.

      • Random12multi

        Probably server maintenance

    • darkcreap

      Maybe a flood of new WiiU owners? I can see a lot of new consoles coming online and making some mayhem.

      • Random12multi

        going to.check server status now see what there website.says

    • Alex

      And I thought my WiiU was broken when I had problems connecting to the internet and froze few times.

      • Zakariyya Al-Quran

        I thought it was my wi-fi

        • Alex

          So did I, I restarted my internet and my internet is working fine but I still can’t access to my eShop.

  • revolution

    Happy holidays everyone! Have loads of fun and be safe. Now, given that the misses just gave me super mario 3dworld for Christmas ( super excited to play) I have to say that pikmen 3 was my favorite game of the year for my wii u. Looking forward to more future dlc. Oh! And I really enjoy rayman legends!

  • majora :D
