We're still recovering from Nintendo Direct a couple of weeks ago when Satoru Iwata announced that many big Nintendo franchises would be storming onto Wii U this year. Yet it seems that Nintendo isn't resting on its laurels with promises from Iwata that fan favourites are coming, and that more unannounced games will be coming later this year. So what could be next?
The Wii's lifespan was filled with calls for various franchises to be revived by Nintendo, and as we've seen veterans such as Kid Icarus being brought back to stardom, nothing can really be written off. Except Mario Typing, perhaps.
Anyway, here are the Wii U games on my wish list.
I've been so disappointed with the Metroid franchise (or more importantly the lack thereof) recently, especially given the series's 25th anniversary passed recently with literally no fanfare. While Other M's story was a bit rubbish (and crazily patriarchal too), the gameplay was really excellent.
I'd really like to see a new Metroid game, but a third-person one. While the Prime series was excellent, I preferred Other M's style, and I think the Prime series has had it's time. I'd prefer to see newer gameplay styles, especially something that uses the GamePad to great effect. Although, maybe scanning should be included - I could see that working really well with the GamePad and accelerometer.
