Nintendo has shared the above status message on their Facebook page for the Wii U. It’s a tease for three launch titles coming to the system. Care to have a guess at what they might be?
Super Smash Bros U is the last one
It cant be, thats coming out in about 2 years
I burst out laughing. It must be nice to live in a fantasy world.
Can’t be, that game practically started development a bit ago. Not gonna happen for years.
the project leader just finished Kid Icarus Uprising like two months ago. They’re just in idea phase.
Just to fit in with the rest of the dolts reposting what Buzzeh said:
They just started developing the game a couple months ago.
1.Pikmin 3 2.Super Mario Wii U 3.TLOZ
New Super Mario Bros. Mii.
Calling it. ALSO, PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE, the quote says WHICH GAMES, NOT which Nintendo games! So please do not guess only Ninty games. Thank you.
Am I the only one who thinks New Super Mario Bros Mii would be a massive waste of the Wii U’s potential? You can’t evolve the classic gameplay of 2D mario much, and graphically it’d fail to impress. It would just be a cash grab that would turn me off.
True Ezz. True
@Ezz151 But it’s a traditional Mario game. I’d love to have some traditional Mario games. And it’s not like ALL the games for the Wii U are going to be basically tech demos.
BTW, the latest 2D Mario games are part 2D, and part 3D. So there could be some impressive textures.
Like it or not, it’s a game that’s enjoyable to most gamers and could very well come bundled with the system (or better, built into memory).
Besides, the last two games sold over 25 million copies each. Do you really think they’re going to stop making ‘em? … :/
I guess people didn’t get the memo that Super Mario Bros Mii is NOT A GAME and only a demo to show off how the Wii U controller worked. That said, Super Mario Bros 4 has been confirmed, so it could be that.
yea i think it is dumb if they do that i mean you know trying to get the core gamer back but at the same time i feel as though it would be better to see things like F-Zero, Prime 4, etc… (JUST EXAMPLES!!!) l8er on like 1 year after so they can play around with the system a bit.
@Fayt Super Mario Bros. 4 was confirmed over 20 years ago. It’s called SUPER MARIO WORLD.
pikmin threeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee , metroid prime fourrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr i guess…
Theeeeerrrre Woooonnnnt Beeeee Aaaaaa Meeeeettttrrrooid Prrimme 4….
^^The above coment made me LOL soooo muuuuuuuuch xD
Why are we talking like it is Dinosaur Offiiiiiiice?!
I would think that the Wii U would be launching with more than just 3 titles, so more than likely with this being a Nintendo Facebook page they are referring to 3 first-party titles.
I guess we’ll see next week.
Of course there will be more than 3 titles, they are just posting 3 of them, they never said there will be only 3.
The question was asked whether or not these would be first party titles or a mixture of first party and 3rd party titles. Which is why I said that being this is on a Nintendo facebook page it probably is referring to 3 first party titles because there are many titles that the Wii U will probably launch with.
Or it could not be. It could be three 3rd-party titles, or a mixtures like I suggested. What was the point of your post again?
yea im thinking it has to be 1st party or maybe super secret hidden exclusive from 3rd party
I’m sure that there will be some nice surprises. I HOPE that one of them is an exclusive FPS from Nintendo. Not that I’m into FPS games that much, but it would be interesting to see how Nintendo would handle that particular genre in this era.
Back in the day (when Rare was not a public embarrassment), games like GoldenEye007 and Perfect Dark helped launch the popularity of FPS games. With Retro Studios being the new and improved replacement for Rare, I’m sure they could take this controller and use it to redefine how FPS games are played the same way the N64 controller redefined how console FPS games were played back then.
Or maybe not. :)
I’m guessing that these are just the first party titles?
New Super Mario Bros Mii, Pikmin 3, and Smash bros.
ha lmfao ! you said smash bros! that barely started development like 3 months ago…….God can you be realistic that game isnt coming out until at very least 2014 and were lucky if we see a cgi concept trailer without any actual gameplay at E3 2013
but the first two you said i believe are 100 percent correct the third can be third party but hopefully its a secret starfox game that will shock people or metroid ….please dont be something like an hd remake that would be awful
What the hell is with people and smash bros do you know when he started making the game? it was like 4-5 month’s ago, it will take about 2-3 years to finished.
4-5 months ago? Only 2 months.
i hope ppl are joking when saying smash bros for god sake don’t push nintendo to ever rush that masterpiece
New Super Mario Bros. Mii.
The Legend of Zelda
Sorry No Zelda
Sorry Just Started Development After E3 2011. Not Enough Time For A Zelda Game
Yeah there is time for a Zelda game. The 3DS, Nintendo could fit two DS Zelda titles in during the process of SKYWARD SWORD. That is huge, lots of work. And here you are saying that there wont be a Zelda title getting launched…. Oh, I realized that its Wii U titles, your right.
There could be a 3DS Zelda using Ocarina 3D’s engine. Not much else.
Ocarina’s 3D’s engine IS the original OoT engine.
Trent Taylor: Lawl no. Ocarina of Time 3D is rebuilt completely from the ground up, and so is its engine. You can tell by looking at the rendering that it’s not anything like the original.
But back to topic. A Wii U game using an engine that’s designed for the 3DS? Not likely, though i could see a new zelda for 3DS reusing the engine!
@Trent Taylor WRONG! Ocarina of Time 3D was built from scratch, using the 3DS dev kit. All models, textures, coding, music and SFX are original to the 3DS game and none of it was ported. Nintendo have said this in one interview, obviously you don’t pay attention. The music in the game was made from scratch and made to sound like the original but in Surround Sound, as well as the special effects.
@AsbjornSR: Notice when I say “3DS Zelda”. :)
And yeah, Ocarina 3D was made from scratch, but built to feel like the original.
They said they would scratch off the letters soon and the words consist of 33, 27, and 19 characters. Ign teased that “the legend of zelda” consists of 19 characters. That should be enough for the wet dreams of millions tonight.
holy crap! …..but its still too soon so it unlikely
And New Super Mario Bros. Mii. does have 27 characters.
Proof: Copy & Paste on here:
WEEEEGEEEEE – Actually, it’s 28, not 27 characters.
Plus, add the 4 extra spaces between the words and you get 28, not 27, so unfortuanetly, NSMBM will not be a launch title. So either the proof is right, or Nintendo miscounted their characters -_-
Assassin’s Creed 3 has 19 characters…
Nope, AC3 only has 18 characters.
WRONG! AC3 has three characters: A(1)C(2)3(3)
It’s New Super Mario Bros. Wii U
Assassin’s Creed fits with the last one if you write it “ASSASSINS CREED III”.
New Super Mario Bros. Mii has 25 characters. New Super Mario Bros. Wii U has 27…
Or maybe super mario bros. 4. 19 characters if u count the period after bros. that would be awesome as well
33, 27, and 19 characters??
I’ll guess it’ll have a subtitle! :D
Yep, if you don’t count the apostraphe, that is 19 characters.
It would be awsome if it was made by Retro with a littel of Masahiro Sakurai’s help
Possibly a Zelda title, but I’m sure one of them is New Super Mario Bros. Mii.
Hmm…. I shouldn’t try to get my hopes up, but would the 3 mystery games be Nintendo-made, or what’s been confirmed?
I would guess this is for the three Nintendo-published titles that will be at launch for the system so… New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, Pikmin 3, and ???
Don’t give a single fuck. Just want my Smash Bros., Ninty. Anything else can dine in hell.
Then you’ll be waiting for another 2-4 years lol.
You should actually try the games and not put them down dumbass.
Also, why would you buy it for WiiU if its the only game you want?
Its coming to 3DS too
Pikmin 3, a new NSMB title, and whatever game Retro is working on. Those are my bets.
Yup. Me too. +1
New Super Mario Bros. Mii, Star Fox HD, & Of Course, Pikmin 3.
its not star fox retro studios say there game is not a launch title. could be mario kart nearly everyone bought that game for wii
Mario Kart 7 was just released, there won’t be new one for atleast two years.
Don’t try to scratch your screen. Believe me, bad idea.
19 = F-Zero VS Wave Race
27 = LoZ: Accordion of Spacetime
33 = New Virtual Boy : Yokoi’s Revenge
A survival-horror game where you will have to escape G. Yokoi’s angry ghost, hunting you because you didn’t buy one of his VB back in the 90s.
I love you. XD
Haha I was actually thinking that the next Zelda instrument would be the Slide Flute of Space, but an accordion would be hilarious.
Star tropics: the golden the abyss has 33 characters in it…
Mello I like the way you think
Lol my Uncle used to mispronounce the title “Ocarina of Time” as “Accordion of Time”.
I really HONESTLY believe that one is Smash Bros. Been in development alot longer than what Nintendo have us believe, as in, the second they finished work on Brawl. You just wait and see
Don’t you understand that Iwata said that Smash Bros wasn’t in development when he announced it. Also Sakurai and his team had been working on Uprising so it would be unlikely. He said he would start Smash Bros when Uprising is done and he said a few months ago that development has just started. They also, need to make the Wii U and a 3DS version. Sakurai once again, said it will take a while, maybe longer than Brawl’s development.
I know Smash Bros. is great but you people need to get out of your fantasy land and look at things realistically. Don’t expect ANYTHING about Smash Bros except for a tiny update. Expect maybe a trailer next year at E3. Face it, it won’t be out for another 2 years at the absolute earliest.
Ok I Will Wait & See, *Day Of Launch* Haha No Smash Bros! pj_cub Failed!
Oh my goodnesss, it’s the Cole Train! Whoo whoo!
I dont think it’ll be a Launch title, but i think Tons of you are Misunderstanding how Super Smash Bros WiiU/3DS started development when Kid Icarus was finished in DEVELOPMENT. NOT RELEASE DATE. Just pointing that out
I love to see a zelda game. ^_^
1: Star Fox.
Can’t come with any good guesses besides Star fox.
It’s more likely with New Super Mario Bros. Mii and Pikmin 3.
New Super Mario Bros. Mii
Lego City Stories
Lego isn’t a first party title is it?
no, but they are publishing it
can some one give me the link to that Wii u page. Its not on my Facebook and yes I tried looking
Have you ever heard of the magical thing called “Google”? You type in what you want, and then it gives you results based on what you type in
You just spammed, no one gives a damn what you spam.
No one gives a damn about what you think.
2.New franchise game known as: Nintendo Universe Cronocle (A game where u create a character and choose a fighting style and aid the nintendo goods to face the nintendo evils and protect the hyrule land,mushroom kingm. And the Ninty Universe a adventure/RPG dang that would be cool.)
3.Super Mario bros 4 = Awesome 1st party games
I think it’s time for just a straight up Super Mario Bros. 4 game. No Galaxy, no Sunshine, no Mii, no Mansion, no 64, and no 128. Just a straight up Super Mario Bros. 4 game.
Thats what im sayin nothing to the people who want smb mii but i think it would kind of be a waste of time for nintendo. That concept should be a feature on a game or DLC not a 20 hour game by itself. SMB 4 is just right plus didnt nintendo say chase mii and SMB Mii where not real games in production.?
Super Mario World is Super Mario Bros. 4
If it doesn’t have a number I don’t count it as a sequel. Luigi has been a playable character in other Super Mario games as well. It didn’t make them sequel.
We don’t need to have this drift into a semantics debate. You know what we mean. Whether is number 4, 5, 6, or 7 I could care less. I want a straight up Super Mario Bros. sequel in the same vein as the predecessors.
Person is right Super Mario World was called “Super Mario Bros. 4″ in Japan.
Super Mario Bros. =No. 1
Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels = No. 2
Super Mario Bros. 2 = No. 3
Super Mario Bros. 3= No. 4
@eha081 Production order, yes. Release order, no.
Japan didn’t recieve SMB2 USA (with the Mario makeover, at least) until 1992, meaning the order there was 1, LL, 3, World. It’s their equivilent to North America getting The Lost Levels in 93.
In that case just call it Super Mario Bros. then. Maybe it’s time for Mario to have a reboot. Make it just a teeny-weeny little bit more serious. It would be interesting exploring the world of the original Super Mario Bros. games in a 3D environment and in 1080p graphics.
Super Mario Bros. 4 WAS Super Mario World. SMB4 was it’s Japanese name, in fact. Then New Super Mario Bros. isgenerally considered to be SMB5, although some consider NSMBWii to be SMB5 due to being on a home console. Also, I like to think of Lost Levels as an… “expansion” of SMB.
U can do that with any game really. then why not make Mario rpg, SMB 5, they should make a SMB4 and name it something diffrent in japan.I agree with D2K if it dosnt have a 4 at the end in the US than to me its not 4.
Lego City Stories
K.I.N.G.D.O.M. .H.E.A.R.T.S. . H.D. . R.E.M.I.X
24 characters probably second one :/
I think the 19 characters one is “Lego City Stories” ;)
Lego City Stories has 17 characters.
You forgot the spaces.
No I didn’t. L(1)e(2)g(3)o(4)space(5)C(6)i(7)t(8)y(9)space(10)S(11)t(12)o(13)r(14)i(15)e(16)s(17)
I’m actually surprised Nintendo did this.
Wii U Music, Wii U Fit, and Wii U Play. If Nintendo were to troll us.
Aren’t they working on 3 new IPs? These could be them.
maybe it’s just games they are announcing/revealing so any game goes. even smash bros. they had enought time to make a CG trailer or teaser showing how it would look. in my mind
They’ve had enough time to make a CG trailer, but I doubt they have anything planned in terms of characters, new gameplay mechanics, or anything to show about the 3DS-Wii U connection. I’d like it to be true, but I just can’t see it happening. Maybe next year.
The Legend of Zelda Wii U
New Super Mario Bros Mii
Mario Kart Wii U?
Mario kart will undoubtedly be announced at E3, doubt it will be a launch title though.
I hope Mario Kart isn’t anywhere close to being a launch title. I want some time put into it. Also, I want Ribbon Road as a Retro track!
@Mike R. Ya.. I think so.
Ironically The Legend of Zelda has 20 letters and the last space is surprisingly close to that number xD
Skyward Sword Only be out for about 6 months. i’ll say about 2014 for a new zelda.
…. It is 19 letters, not 20.
Let’s hope so. I personally hated Skyward Sword, it was a huge letdown in my eyes.
Zelda Wii U launch = $$$$$
a nsmb, pikmin, and either a new ip or retro’s project
I Still Want Majora’s Mask 3D, & Zelda 3DS. So Forget About Zelda Wii U For A Long While.
Yeah while it wouldn’t show off any of the Us features, it predecessor sold 15+ million in sales, and launching a new one for the Wii U could increase initial launch sales, which is always a good thing if we don’t want to repeat the 3ds debacle.
I pray that all 3 are from Nintendo’s 1st-party and 2nd-party developers. :3 A system launch isn’t strong without good IP.
GBA – Super Mario Advance
GameCube – Luigi’s Mansion
DS – Super Mario 64 DS
Wii – Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
3DS – Nintendogs + cats
Now for the Wii U to raise the bar. :D
I’m inclined to believe that’s definitely the 1st-party lineup.
The nineteen letter one is THE LEGEND OF ZELDA. Anouma said he wanted to get Zelda games out quicker, thats probably happening. But I doubt it.
That quicker isn’t necessarily on the home console, though. Skyward Sword as of this show will be barely over half-a-year old, and with the promise of “no Zelda ports on 3DS until the new one is out” (paraphrased) a 3DS game announcement is the most likely.
New Super Mario Bros Mii Pikmin HD and Zelda HD call it…and so does everyone else :P
last one is a metroid game for definet count the spaces and fill with words
lets just hope it’s not Super Mario Bros. Unless it is a 3D adventure game like Mario 64, I really dont want to see any Mario game. I’m so sick of Mario bros games and I think its about time they make a sequel to Mario 64. Also, Nintendo was smart they would make Zelda a launch tile, that would probably boost sales 10x by if they didn’t.
Yes, make Zelda a launch title, despite the fact that it’s too damn early and it’ll only come out as rushed shit!
Au Contraire, Donny, you are assuming that said Zelda would be developed by the usual Zelda Development team! What if Retro has been working on Zelda all this time!?
I don’t understand why Nintendo announced smash Bros almost a year before they even began to create it. That’s not like them at all. I’m very suspicious. I think (and hope) they have been telling little white lies ;)
Doesnt Matter Either Way
I have a feeling Iwata wasn’t planning on announcing a new Smash Bros originally, but then decided to in order to attract the core crowd more because a lot of people thought Wii U was just a controller for Wii.
Iwata even said that they made a mistake at E3 2011 by not showing the console specifically. It was only seen in the videos and a lot of people online only watched the presentation, not the coverage of the floors.
The legend of Zelda majora’s mask hd is 33 characters including apostrophes and spaces, maybe?
Um, If Majora’s Mask Was Ever To Be Remade, It Would Be On A HandHeld.
Pen Sports Wii U
I really hope Nintendo doesn’t consider New Super Mario Bros Mii as there number 1 major launch title.
Not only do I feel like the Wii one is recent and fresh, it’s not a good game to flex the new system’s specs or controller.
Pleeeeeeaaaaase let it be something like a sequel to Super Mario 64 or something “open world” like that.
I think it would be pretty incredible if NSMBM was a launch title, considering they haven’t released a core Mario game at launch since the Nintendo 64.
But I know what you’re saying. NSMB isn’t the most exciting thing.
We already know what these three are.. We just don’t know the names
New Super Mario Wii U
Pikmin untitled Wii U
Lego City Stories
There are no surprises here. Nintendo is trolling you.
Forgot about Lego City Stories… /:
Is Lego City Stories Nintendo Developed? At any rate, it would be a horrible idea to hype up a Lego game when they claim to be tying to attract the Hardcore…
I wouldn’t be surprised if Pikmin 3 were to be a launch title (or at least part of the launch window). Miyamoto has been talking about the game as early as March 2010…
For some reason…People can’t count characters…I don’t know why either…
The Legend of Zelda: Shield of Wisdom
Hmm. That’s a pretty cool title.
I Like The Name!
the soon well reveal the names is the best thing of the post :D
This has nothing related to this story, but I found out today of a new title announced by Netherealm Studios called Injustice: Gods Among Us, which is a DC comics fighting game. I found this out on an article on Inside Gaming Daily.com with a link to a trailer on Gamespot.com. There is also an interview video on the website.
The trailer had said it was coming to Wii U.
Ugh…I was never any good at these guessing games.
I just hope that one of them is Star Fox related. Anything else goes.
It could be the new Super Smash Bros. game. :) Nintendo could of lied about not making it yet and they could of made it already. :P
fyi even though super smash bros wii u and 3ds just been announced at e3 doesnt mean they just started to work on it its probally been in devolopment and they chose last years e3 to tell for all you know it might come out next year or sooner!!
OK let me say my thoughts without counting the characters
1) zelda U
2) lego city stories
for #3 Itoi said he wanted to make more mother games and “We’re working on something the fans have wanted” -Nintendo
“Its not a starfox or metroid game” -Nintendo
So obviously it could be earthbound 2
Actually, earth bound 4, they released earthbound in japan for famicom (USA just call it earth bound zero for the fact the title screen in the sequel is called earthbound. Earthbound 64 was the third earthbound, but was cancelled and put in earthbound 3 for GBA (The story remains the same)
Well technically speaking. Earthbound 0 is a fan translation and so is mother 3. In japan it would be 4 here in America it would most likely be EB 2
I think that these games are games that they haven´t announced because if they put games that are going to other consoles or games that have been announced that will be non-sense.
Maybe that new freanchise that Myamoto is working on, maybe a Zelda game and some new innovative Mario Game.
Zelda have not been in development from last year. Nintendo said that the reunions and development of Wii U started in 2008 so it must be a Zelda game in line-up.
Wherever I just want to see the two conferences of Nintendo ( The Press Conference and the Software Showcase) and choose my must have games.
COUNTDOWN 5 DAYS!
last one: elite beat agents 2★
I’m seriously thinking a new Pokemon Snap game would be perfect for the Wii U! Gyro controls acting as the camera, and the tablet’s screen as the view finder. NFC could be used for special items, such as a rare item to throw at pokemon, or special film for the camera.
I was thinking about that too! Imagine an HD Pokemon snap with realistic environments and Pokemon, millions of hidden objects and Easter eggs…. AWESOME woah I just thought of n open world Pokemon snap where you run around on foot…
New super Mario bros mii
33 Characters “Starfox Metroid Fusion Saga Wii U” “Donkey Kong Country Returns again”
27 Characters: “New Super Mario Brother Mii” “Super Smash Brothers 4 WiiU” “Virtual boy Collection WiiU”
19 Characters: “Legend of Zelda” “Eternal Darkness 2 ” “Starfox Adventure 2″ “Super Smash Bros. 4″ “Wii U Sports Ressort” “Final Fantasy VII-2″ “Xenosaga Episode IV”
Not bad. Not bad at all. lets see here. “Star Fox” is two words, and I think they’d come up with a better name for the new DKC.
They never spell out “Bros.”, and “Wii U” is also two words.
When a Zelda game is announced with no name, they usually include “The”, Smash Bros. is too deep in development. “Resort” has one “s”. Nintendo and Final Fantasy are pretty unrelated. Monolith made the other Xenosaga games for other systems, so if they made another, I don’t think they would use a number in the name.
But let me tell you, you still did way better than me.
Lego: City Stories doesn’t even fit. Did they say that was going to be a launch title? I can’t remember.
Anyway, I thought about it and I can’t think of anything at all that fits. I doubt the fact that one of them will be the new Mario game because the Wii U is coming out this year and there is already a new main mario game coming out this year.
Super Mario ( adventure ) , Pikmin 3 , & RetroStudios’ project… Does that sound reasonable? Although I’m not sure If those will impress the general gaming community… I STILL LIKE IT!
Can’t we all just imagine one of the titles being StarFox:by retro studios that’s 24 charaters
How about for the 33 letter one The Legend of Zelda HD Collection. That would be an amazing launch title.
The Legend of Zelda HD Collection
New Super Mario Bros. Wii U
Wii U Sports Resort
The Legend of Zelda HD Collection
Pikmin HD Collection and Pikmin 3
New Super Mario Bros. Wii U
Final Fantasy HD Collection
Wii U Sports Resort
Valve HD Collection
Zelda collection is unlikely. Anything beyond TP is too recent, they probably wouldnt use any 2D games, and they just remade OOT. That leaves MM and WW. Not much of a “collection”. Pikmin collection is also unlikely, the Pikmin 2 remake for Wii is still upcoming. I doubt they will release a new Mario game when there’s already a 3DS one coming out. FF and Sports Resort do hold water though. but i think they meant these three games are Nintendo-published, so FF could go either way.
There is a possibility that the 3DS and Wii U versions of the new Super Mario Bros will be playable across platforms, like what they said about the upcoming Super Smash Bros.
ALTTP & MM Both Are Unlikely For The HD Collection.
the short one if I counted correctly is just big enough to fit
hey a man can hope can’t he
Oh yay another round of the same’oll 2D mario games *cheers (sarcasm)
maybe it’s Kid Icarus Uprising just like the
3ds but then for the WiiU
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic “The Game”.
mario cart hd mario hd and super mario bros sd lol
