May 10th, 2013


Over the past few days, we’ve been getting information from companies releasing their financial reports. It’s common this time of year, as it’s the end of the fiscal year for them. We’ve seen some restructuring going on at Nintendo, Capcom announced that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was a smash hit, and according to Sega’s financial report, it looks like we’ll be seeing seven new titles this year.

The information is located on page five of the document linked, under the Wii U SKU column. No names of games are given, but a new 3D Sonic game has been rumored. Aside from that, Sega owns a few interesting IPs that I would like to see make the transition to Wii U. The first of those is the Total War series, which is a grand strategy game. How about you, what would you like to see on the table from Sega this year? Let us know in the comments below.

    ummm a rainbow Popsicle


    • this game one of the greatest hits of Sega and yet we only saw a GameCube port but ho knows after Sega renewing skies of Arcadia trade mark it may come true I SUPPORT SOA!!

  • Shakyy

    Phantasy Star Online and Shenmue 3 that is all.

    • ludist210

      Yes, yes, yes! Give me Phantasy Star Online 2 and that may be the only game I need for years. YEARS!

    • Ryan Wick

      Shenmue Trilogy…and the saves actually carry over to next game.

    • Kaihaku

      Phantasy Star Online 2 would be excellent.

  • I want Aliens: Colonial Marines on the Wii U…


    • D.M.T

      Hahahaha I thought this was funny but 2 other people didnt like the joke

    • Guest

      Same if story is not really good… Multiplayer look nice

    • Javy G

      The same joke could work with Sonic 06

    • Warren Huff

      Ha, Ha, Ha, funny one lol! I would love to see a compiliation of classic Sega Model 3 arcade ports now that the hardware is powerful enough to pull them off 100%. I want perfect Model 3 arcade ports of Sega: Super GT, Daytona USA 2 Power Edition, Star Wars: Arcade Triliogy, Virtua Fighter 3TB, Fighting Vipers 2, Sega Rally 2, Harley-Davidson & L.A. Riders, Sega Rally 2, Cyber Troopers Virtual-On and a few of the other great classics from the Golden age of arcade gaming and could make some of them even better by adding online play! It would be a day one purchase at the full $59.99 for me no question!!!

  • Noel Canales

    We need a new Altered Beast!

  • Robknoxious1

    Panzer Dragoon. Oh also Shining Force.

  • Graham Gillman


  • sharlo galmo

    f-zero please!

  • D.M.T

    Give me a new Phantasy Star Online, a new Sonic adventure game, a new Virtua Fighter and a Virtua Tennis 5 please 😀

  • val berger

    FZero GX U, thank you.

    • Jonn McNally

      That’s a Nintendo franchise.

      • Jordan Fata

        You are correct, but F-Zero GX was developed by SEGA.

        • Fred

          I love when people come in with specific clarifying details!!!

      • val berger

        As Jordan mentioned FZero is a Nintendo Franchise but GX was developed by SEGA. It was indeed a co-production which I would totally love to see again as it was actually a project, two former huge rivals did together and it turned out to be one o the greatest games ever (my opinion 😉 )
        There was just everything right about that game and if SEGA would do something like that again, they would surely count that to those 7 titles.

  • Adam John Manns

    Phantasy Star Online 2? It would make sense for the Wii U using the GamePad touchscreen to select items, check maps, and word communicate by typing.

  • uPadWatcher

    Sega needs to bring back the Streets of Rage franchise.

    • TMorg

      Or at least put it on the Wii U Virtual Console!

      • Pedro Natera

        No a new streets of rage for wii u

        • thedeciderU

          i have to disagree. they need a fresh start IP in a similar style though. i’d love them in the VC though.

    • …with HD-graphics, max 5 players simultaneously (tablet + 4 Wiimotes)! 🙂

      • Kaihaku

        Love it.

  • Ryan

    Phantasy Star Online 2

    • D.M.T

      Why 2? PSO 3 was a GameCube exclusive. Phantasy Star Online 4 on Wii U would be cool, not 2 or 3

      • Adam John Manns

        Don’t you mean Phantasy Star Online ‘Episodes 1, 2, and 3 for GameCube? PSO2 is a true sequel to the first PSO.

        • D.M.T

          Oops yeah that’s what i mean sorry 😛

  • uPadWatcher

    Virtua Fighter U, Virtua Cop U, Die Hard U, Virtual On U

    • Javy G

      House of Dead CINCO Wii U

  • Jimmy D. Fugate

    Screw the haters. Put this in your juice box and suck it.

    • Jimmy D. Fugate

      Hopefully a couple new IPs?

      • thedeciderU

        i really hope

  • Michael Jurado

    as long as it’s not 7 sonic games we are good …. seriously it better not be 7 sonic games -_-

  • Jordan Fata

    Best game would be F-Zero UX. F-Zero GX was developed by SEGA and published by Nintendo. Since F-Zero GX was the best game in the franchise, Nintendo probably entrusted them with making the next F-Zero on the Wii U. Nintendo stated that they didn’t make F-Zero for the Wii because the graphics wouldn’t look much better than F-Zero GX and the motion controls would be too hard to control an F-Zero racer, so it’s possible an F-Zero for the Wii U has been in development.

    • val berger

      Good to see someone sharing my opinion 🙂

      There weren’t many racing games that I had to complete perfectly. I wouldn’t even mind if they’d do a HD remake with some additional effects or better models/textures as GX still looks awesome and can’t really be surpassed.

      A perfect example of a game that’s easy to learn and hard to master, letting you just float on a coud when you’re beating one of those master cups. goddammit, I just love that game.

    • Michael Jurado

      F-zero would be freaking awesome on the wii u 🙂 lets cross our fingers and hope sega steps up

  • Fred

    What is this total war series? She mentioned strategy game, but nothing else. Is there a popular game similar to this one?

  • Bob Brochee

    Great News. We just need a MadWorld 2 and we will all be better for it!

    • John Andalora

      Mad World was just published by SEGA. Platinum Games made the game.

  • I want Nights into Dreams on Wii U eshop. Every other console got it so why not the Wii U.

  • John Andalora

    NO! For the love of god, just….. NO!

    I want games to come out, but I’m not THAT desperate!

  • Super Buu

    I’m excited for the 3D Sonic game given I’m a big fan of Sonic. Here’s my wishlist: Shenmue 3, new Vector Man (Please SEGA, Please), new Skies of Arcadia, MOAR COMIX ZONE!!

  • Petri

    One of those games better be PSO 2.
    Also first Bayonetta port would be welcome addition to my collection.
    But yeah, new games over old ports.

  • peeer

    I would love to see virtual console expend from Sega Master System up to Dreamcast generation titles. Alot of smash hits could emerge to the nintendo eShop…

    As for the 7 new titles I just hope Sega starts doing things the good way… As ever since they dropped from console market, they have started to make poor games.

  • I would bet money that one of those titles will be a Sochi Olympics title with Sonic/Mario.

  • JeanPaul

    The Conduit 3

  • nyjavi


  • Hugh Quinn

    sonic adventure 3 anyone?

  • peter griffin

    this is a BRILLIANT opportunity for Sega to bring back the big guns and bring themselves and nintendos exclusivity of games to a whole new level.

    imagine all these for your console ( names a re made up but you get the idea )

    3D mario
    Zelda U
    Shenmue 4
    Phantasy Star Online Wii Uedition
    3D sonic U
    Marvel vs Capcop 2013
    Ready 2 Rumble Boxing 3
    Altered Beast – A New Age
    F-Zero U
    Virtua Fighter WiiU edition
    Street Fighter U
    Donkey Kong Country U
    Mario Kart U
    Paper Mario U
    Bomberman Wii U Edition
    Mortal Kombat U
    Dynamite Cop 2013
    Crazy Taxi 3
    DOA U
    Toy Commander U
    Power Stome U
    Soul Reaver 2
    Chu Chu rocket Touch Edition
    Jet Grind Radio
    Space Channel 5
    Wonder Boy
    Alex Kid
    Soul Caliber 6

    imagine if all those games came out to wii u , would you every even contemplate buying another console?

    • Pedro Natera

      maybe not

    • theBALLANCEDopinion

      Soul Calibur six!!!! Hell yeah!!! Featuring exclusive nintendo characters! Link, Marth, Ike, and Ganondorf. Better yet:
      Soul Calibur x Super Smash Bros. Come on, you can’t possibly think hat a crossover like that wouldn’t be awsomely possible four years down the line. Especialy with Namco’s newfound friendship with Sakurai.

      • Hugh Quinn

        BOOM…a million dollars for nintendo

    • William Cole

      Man, I’d kill for an Alex Kidd Wii Ware game. Like they did with Jett Rocket.

    • Silent

      Take F-Zero out and put in Metroid Prime U and Im all aboard.

  • Nintendofreak

    a new jet set radio i love that shit

  • audi lover

    I just want sonic 4 havent bothered with it on my mobile

  • MøhÃ¥mmęd JÃ¥rmøn

    A new And better Mario vs Sonic would be cool

  • Guest

    Power Stone. /end

  • Panzer Dragoon U or how about Panzer Dragoon Saga U!!!!

    • Frank

      It’s about time saga got a well-deserved remake. It did not enjoy the success it deserved

  • Ecco the Dolphin, go go go!

    • thedeciderU

      good genesis and dreamcast game

  • F-Zero U confirmed….right? Right?

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Nice, let’s just hope there’s no Aliens or Sonic ’06 screw-ups in there.
    A proper Sonic game would be great, as would a new entry in any of Sega’s solid IPs and a lot of people are saying they could have a go at F-Zero again, me gusta – if that’s true then it should have kept Retro Studios hands free for Starfox/Metroid.

  • Squid

    It seems we are getting support from our retro friends. (Capcom, Namco, and Sega)

  • JumpMan


  • Archiq09

    Conduit 3? it’s I think most popular fps game in multiplayer on wii

  • New Madworld? Conduit 3 (they published it; shut up)?

  • Justin Gray

    Shining Force

  • DemonRoach

    Please be HD remake of Sonic 1,2,3 & Sonic & Knuckles all in one!

  • Skies of Arcadia 2

  • zerooooo

    Conduit 3!!!!! Make it happen.

  • FlyingBoat

    seven seems like a really large number, like pretty much one game a month. if the virtual console contained other console’s games (like wii’s does) then id say some of those would be old re-releases. im pretty impressed, either way. love a good sonic game

    also i really want to get the old sonic series on the virtual console. I CANT BEAT SKY FORTRESS IN SONIC 2!

  • Jonas

    I actually think football manager would be a perfect fit for wii u. The gamepad just makes sense for that game and i have always wanted to just be able to play it on My tv without the need for a keyboard. 🙂

  • William Cole

    Please, Skies of Arcadia 2 and Sonic Adventure 3.

  • José Abraham Cervantes Posadas

    I only want ONE good Sonic game running at 60 fps.

  • david jarman

    I need shenmue, grandia 1+2, skies of arkania, panzer dragoon, shining force, power stone, more phantasy star and shoot, I still love crazy taxi. Did I mention shenmue? I know this isn’t a sega game, but I want it-“zombies ate my neighbors”

  • Leo

    They should make a new Shenmue using the gamepad possibilities.

  • Christopher Smith

    Conduit 3?

  • thedeciderU

    i’d love to see a new sega IP focusing on its quirky arcade beat ’em up games. it’s totally niche, but how awesome was dynamite cop?

  • 150Db

    Great news. One question however: on the report linked to in the article, it lists 2 SKUs (games) that have already been released on Wii U. Would that be including the cancelled Aliens CM, or is it possible that there are 2 separate SKUs for each region (US and Euro) that Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing has been released in?

  • Adecentboy777

    It’s about time to see something on Wii U, since there is almoust no games on it, just disappointment regarding first and 3rd party games.

  • thanos1984

    A Panzer Dragoon Saga sequel would be great.

  • RonnieMexico

    sega died in 2001….

  • Shreckle

    Super monkey ball!!!

  • Panzer Dragoon! Nuff Said 😀
    Owh and there is Skies of Arcadia 2, this games cries to be developed (Loved the first one on Gamecube, as I didn’t have a Dreamcast in the days before that…)
    Dunno if anyone said the same games allready though, sorry could not be bothered to read all comments, to many new articles to read as I haven’t been here in a few days /ashamed.
    But I just blame Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for that and automatically with that blame I also blame Capcom to release such and awesome game 😛

  • Sega & Nintendo co-operation on Wii U = THE success story! Nice to see also Namco titles out there! <3 Now Square Enix should join the club too.

  • SEGA Rally U. <3

  • Kaihaku

    If one of these is Phantasy Star Online 2 I will be very, very happy.
