    To bad I live on the east coast ๐Ÿ™

  • Frankie

    I hope Nintendo attends more events like this. It is better to reach games at events like these than E3.

    • Shawn Spitler

      Agreed, but I also think these games should be playable demos at all retailers (Gamestop, Target, Best Buy, etc).

      There’s no reason the kiosks at these retailers should play only video previews (minus the ONE Rayman Legends demo you have to search through a list for).

      Nintendo expresses all the time how the experience and how you feel when you play the game is the most important part. So, where are opportunities for me to play?

      Am I supposed to just take IGN and WiiUDaily’s word for it? or the lucky few at ComicCon this year?

      I wanna play dammit!!

  • Clel

    I have no idea what Comic-Con is.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Annual comic book expo I think.

    • Jack5221

      Its a huge convention located in San Diego CA every year in July. They have all sorts of things there like comics, video games, t.v shows. Lots of people that go dress up in costumes, so if you’re into that, then its a pretty fun place to go. I went back in 2010 and it was a lot of fun.

    • kenny Johnson

      Pretty much the largest media (movies, tv, books, games, comics, etc.) convention in the world…

  • D.M.T

    Do your thing Nintendo!!! You need to prove everyone wrong again. Let em know that it doesnยดt matter how many RAM you have and if itยดs DDR3 or GDDR5.

    Let the naysayers know that Wii U can be very successful.

    Go Nintendo go! #WiiBelieveInU

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Yeah! Dont let those lacking shaders stand in your way! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Are you getting any of these games btw DMT?

      • D.M.T

        Iยดm getting most of those games except Just Dance, Disney Infinity and Skylanders

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          I an getting Disney Infinity a andbd skylanders probably not.

        • Infinity actually looks really cool… but physical DLC…

          • e_rocket

            Yes infinity looks cool, I want to try it

          • there’s a new trailer on miiverse that got me pumped

        • for my wii the list is the nex:
          Watch Dogs, Batman, splinter cell, just dance (my wife love that) and pikmin 3 for now.

          • e_rocket

            I want to play pikmin 3 soon!!!

          • Mario

            Don’t you mean WiiU?

          • nop! Sega Genesis.

          • ICHI

            If you’re going to go Sega, do it properly and buy a Saturn or a Dreamcast they have not been beaten by other consoles yet for sheer amount of games I truly loved on a single platform, MS have had 4 true classics per gen, Sony 5-6 and Nintendo get about 7-8. Sega though I have about 20 games each on Sat and DC which are phenomenal

          • that was sarcasm, i mean wii U

          • ICHI

            I just love SEGA ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Mario


          • KnowledgeIsPower

            I can see how you watching your wife play just dance can be more entertaining than any videogame except for the best game in history Mario 64 of course.

          • hahahahahahhaa, and she dance very well.

    • e_rocket

      JAJA nice comment, Hope wii u really can be successful, I`m enjoying mine and canยดt wait to try some of this games!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Anwar

        Sry man but I lost hope in the wii u and ps4 i am coming!!!

        • val berger

          give it some time. I know there was enough time until now, but new consoles never did too well during their first years, especially nintendo’s systems. indeed, the wiiu is even below those expectations, but still, it has much potential and at least the first party titles are soon gonna become much more tailored to fit the system’s advantages. by now, there’s hardly any game that really makes use of the gamepad’s abilities, just imagine what happenes if Nintendo starts throwing out stuff for that. It’s a cool system, sure, it’s not the mainstream system, but it’s something that stands out and it’s a system, that put’s gaming in focus. I’m also waiting for the PS4 but I personally won’t buy one until it’s 1-2 yrs old as I just don’t really see any reason to do so. Those games are gonna look beautiful, but that’s it. Even if I play some minigame in intendo land with 5 players, that’s something more unique, than the PS4/XBone will be able to deliver. And with W101 and ario 3D Land, the WiiU is becoming the ultimate choice when playing offline with friends. But yeah, in the end, it’s all a matter of different taste. Some prefer playing online, some offline, I never really got too much into playing online on consoles.

          • e_rocket

            I agree with you, playing with friends in the same room is entirely unique with the U, really fun!!

          • raiden777

            Playing right beside someone or 3 or more people in the same room…its funny how some people in the industry take that for granted and pretend that that is out of style or something.
            This view that we should just play online with our friends is NONSENSE.

            It is far more rich and healthy of an experience to be playing against/with someone that’s physically at your side. That real social contact is always going to be the standard of co-op in gaming.

            Online multiplayer is already old news and a novelty in ways. Its a tool that is use full and has its place, but the optimal game competition is always shared on the same couch. Nintendo is wise to know this, when all the pathetic industry analysts continue to trip over themselves with their feeble attempts to sound and look “trendy”. Nintendo had to school these dim wits once bbefore, and shall yet again. Class is now in session

          • val berger

            I don’t think, there’s a black & white here. Offline MP as well as Online MP got their strengths and weaknesses. For instance Massive Multiplayer Online Games couldn’t work offline, while especially competitive Stuff like the Nintendoland MP-games wouldn’t really be as fun online. Both worlds can be fun but I totally understand, that the mainstream masses go for online games, as there are just way less problems getting a bunch of online friends together, than for some offline match. Plus online games can make full use of a system’s technical capabilities in terms of graphics and processing power to create immersive online worlds.

            Don’t get me wrong, I personally really prefer playing NSMBU with 4 friends over any online game, but I’ve played through both sides of that medal and know that you shouldn’t just go for one and only for one. Although I do think, that Nintendo should do that. It would be quite cool if the WiiU would be THE solution for offline fun. Of course, it looks like that’s going to happen anyway, but they should really put this in focus. 5 Players plus one of them can play a totally different role, that’s some really strong argument for fans of offline MP, if you’re asking me.

            Ok, at that point, I’ll switch to dreammode to point out hat I think would be really awesome: Zelda U with a 2 Player Coop mode that let’s you play through the whole game, one player on the TV, the other player on the gamepad, both different skills and gadgets, so they need to work together and solve puzzles together and thanks to the wiiU it would be possible that both could also be at totalls different locations. Something like this would also ensure, that the whole mechanic of the zelda series would feel a bit fresher (once again) and I don’t think that ppl aren’t able to get one single player to play with them. aaaaw wouldn’t it be nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Andreas Sunde

          It’s been out for less than a year, and you’re already writing it off?

  • Magnus Eriksson

    From these games I plan to buy:
    * The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
    * Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
    * Super Mario 3D World
    * Pikmin 3
    * New Super Luigi U (GOT IT!)
    * Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014
    * Rayman Legends
    * Sonic Lost World
    * The Wonderful 101

    • Adam Porter

      i probably won’t get rayman or mario and sonic 2014, but the rest of your list i’m getting.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        I think M&S looked very nice. Probably a good family game to play with the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Edit: How can someone downvote a comment like this? ๐Ÿ˜€

        • 00EpicGamer00

          That Knowledge guy probably downvoted you xD
          Secretly, Mario and Sonic is probably his favorite game, and when he saw you say “a good family game to play with kids” he was like “oh helllll no, M&S is the only hardcore sh*t that Nintendo has to offaaaa!!!!! *downvote*”

    • I think I had you confused with someone else the other day… I apologize

      • The Clockwork Being

        Probably not he is always going having a little fun trolling everybody but in reality he says he loves the Wii U

    • omg wonderful 09!

    • Vialtoclef

      Same here!

    • NkoSekirei

      ive alrdy preordered splinter cell blacklist,assassin creed 4,sonic lost world,rayman legends,wind waker,batman arkham origins,watch dogs, and bayonetta 2 which would be total 19 games on my system wen i pick them up so ill be set till mario kart 8,super smash bros,x and any other ones become available for preorder

  • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

    Excelent!! Im looking forward for those games… well some cause my money is limited. Now bring more third party support

  • uPadWatcher

    If I were in the West Coast, I would be there in a rapid heartbeat.

  • Ice Climbers

    That’s basically every big game in Nintendo’s lineup other than Mario Kart 8, SMT x FE, Smash Bros, Monolith’s X, Yarn Yoshi, and Pokemon X/Y.

  • XelaFury

    Good list of Wii U & 3DS games, i’m really interested to see more of Bayonetta 2 and Yoshi’s New Island. Talking about Wii U & 3DS games… I wonder when we will see more gameplay footage of X, Yarn Yoshi, Mario Golf: World Tour, Mario Party 3D & our very first look at Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem footage?

  • ฮ”ฮนฮฟฮฝฯฯ‚84

    No Mario Kart 8? Also nothing new

    • Michael Jurado

      if you haven’t played every single one of these games it’s something new just because you’ve seen it doesn’t mean you’ve played it ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Crap on such short notice I can’t arrange anything with work anymore I know someone who lives in San Diego region, if it was just a week or 3 later, I know where my last minute trip would bring me during my holidays ๐Ÿ™ No can do in barely 3 days >_<

  • fireheartis1

    Yes everybody it looks like Ignoranceiswhatsup has finally been banned. Man it’s about time. That guy was getting on my last nerve. Thank you Wii U Daily for taking care of him. Everybody on this site were getting really tired of all his hate. He was so disrespectful to everyone here, and to many of the Wii U Daily staff. I’m glad someone had the smarts to finally get rid of him.

    • Andrew Chambers

      To bad he’ll be back with a new user name soon.

      • Marc Duarte

        Nothing a good IP ban couldn’t fix.

        • Andrew Chambers

          It is already back and posting…

          And it appears to have nothing better to do and is very dedicated. If they banned its IP then it would just go to a library or McDonald’s and use the internet there.

          • Michael Jurado

            I know right he does more trash talks than he actually games

  • Linskarmo

    I wish I was going there, but I can wait for the games.

  • boynhisblobs

    cant wait for this, going on saturday. theres also an adult swim funhouse right down the street from the gaming lounge and the walking dead experience.

    • Michael Jurado

      I’ve been in a zombie march in universal studios where the make up crew from the walking dead were giving free make overs and I gotta say it was awesome I never had so much fun Walking lol xD also I can’t make it to any of these events this year due too financial struggles can ya keep me posted if they mention robot chicken?

      • boynhisblobs

        I’m sure something Robot Chicken will be there, they show up every year. I went to the walking dead experience last year too and it was awesome. Recorded the whole thing in 3d on my 3ds.

  • DragonSilths

    Bayonetta 2…playable? Must be further in development then I thought. Everyone keep an eye out for Michael Patcher. He said he would get a Wii U just for Bayonetta 2 lol.

    • Michael Jurado

      omg why would you mention him lol

  • InterTreble

    Where is the so-called “console with no games”?! I see lots of games, here… You know what? Who tell that kind of stories are always haters, people who pretend to know everything… Lovers of “consoles with no soul”… This is the problem! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Luffy

      By the end of the year, I plan to have at least 16 games on my WiiU!
      All retail!
      + digital games I already have and will get!

      Seriously, I’ve never got so many game on a console’s first year.

      • InterTreble

        This, man. This. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Michael Jurado

        between the Wii U and my 3ds my wallet can’t handle it and that’s a good thing

    • Michael Jurado

      What i’m really excited about is what the Japanese developers have been working on back when Fire emblem was about to release nintendo told us that they’ve opened their arms to them and tons of new games are coming and then we never heard from them again ugh I want to see these games release too

  • Yoboyjohn

    It’s a proven fact that the 8gbof ram in ps4 and x1 is just to show off. Many developers said that its just to show off the power but all 8 fb will never be used

    • Michael Jurado

      even if they were used the game would only look really nice but, wouldn’t change the gameplay much simply because it’s easier to appeal to a mass crowd this way and looks don’t even matter play Metal Gear Solid 1 or 3 those games have aged really well and its so sad to see sony stray from this path of awesome games

  • $41809923


  • Luffy

    On a side note, have you guys heard that Capcom is suppose to announce something big for Mega Man anniversary during Comic Con?

    Just getting a bit carried over here, but I believe it’s a MegaMan game exclusivley for Wii U.

    Why? Because Iwata as stated that another big game was on the way before the end of the year by a third party publisher, but he was not at liberty to discuss it.

    Mix that with Capcom being hyper secretive about MegaMan anniversary + MegaMan is shown in new Smash and I believe that they will announce a new MegaMan game exclusively for Wii U during Comic Con!

    One can dream I guess….

    • Michael Jurado

      Omg!! that would be a dream come true ^__^ I really hope this happens UGH I want to kick my self for not being able to make it to Comic-Con this year

    • Mochlum

      But… they probably would’ve shown something that amazing at E3. But seriously, that would be the coolest thing ever.

  • val berger

    slightly off topic: is there any way to see how well upcoming games are doing according to their pre-purchases? I already ordered my copy of w101 but I’m afraid it’s not really gonna be successful (even for WiiU stadards) and I’m interested how well it is doing by now.

    • Michael Jurado

      I can’t really help you but, I can say that i’m looking forward to the Wonderful 101 just one question where did you pre order it??

      • val berger

        I preordered it at amazon.co.uk, because its a bit cheaper there than where I’m living (austria, about 5 bucks more expensive and localized, which usually sucks ;D )

        Yeah, I wouldn’t doubt that the game has many fans around these discussion boards, but on a wiiU-fansite, this shouldn’t really be such a big thing ;-D
        I just think that if the WiiU has problems of advertising its identity in a way that works for mainstream, how will this game achieve that.
        There aren’t too many WiiU owners out there and even they probably aren’t all into this game. And I can’t imagine that there are too many ppl buying the system to play it either. umm I don’t wanna tear anything down or be too negative about that, it’s just that it’s a new brand noone knows, a concept that may occur too freaky to the masses and so on. As the devs said, they gotta do something around its release. release Demos, Ads, send it to gamestop & bestbuys across the globe and so on.

        Still it would be great to see a proper indication of preorders for games in general because the same thing would be interesting for Deus Ex, X and Donkey Kong.

  • lemonpop301

    how can you lose hope in a console that has sold just as many as the ps3 did by this time

    • lemonpop301

      ps3 had an even worse starting library

      • Michael Jurado

        exactly ps3 didn’t even get a decent library of games until mid way of the 2nd year

        • lemonpop301

          people just arent as creative as nintendo so they look at the wii u and are like what the hell is this thing.

          • Michael Jurado

            Just give it some time bud ๐Ÿ˜€ i’m sure 3rd party developers will get the hang of it

    • Michael Jurado

      by the end of the first year ps3 and the 360 had 2.5 million sales freaking Wii U got 3.45 million in 3 months I mean sure it slowed down after that but, it still surpassed it so it’s like wth people?

  • Mochlum

    …now I’m even more mad that I can never go to Comic-Con…

  • raiden777

    Comic Con is way bigger than E3 and this is a fantastic place for Nintendo to bring that many games for people to see and play
