Donkey Kong Country looks awesome too, Retro Studios is amazing, and i still hope for a new Metroid.

Wow. Super Mario 3D World is coming much earlier than I expected. I hope it doesn't feel rushed and full of bugs.

Took them long enough; if they had a first party title like this ready for launch the Wii U might have done a lot better to start off with.

So is Super Mario 3d World going to be like Mario 64, Mario Sunshine or Galaxy? I havent seen any single player stuff.

@phbz you say that like buying a Wii U is a bad thing. Remember: upcoming price cut for all Wii Us.

@kdokey Add zombie U to that list. Cannot praise the game enough.

@FLEEBS I've never known Nintendo to release a game full of bugs. The only time they ever released a really buggy game was probably Pokemon Red and Blue, but those games had so little development budget to begin with.

@ad0234 

Sure lil' dude, with: Super Mario 3D World, Sonic, Donkey Kong, Rayman, and i liked Sly Cooper too.

@jrcast84 To me it looks like a mix between Super Mario 3d (level select) and Mario Galaxy (without gravity addition) mixed with co-op like New Super Mario Brothers.

@DMND resisting for no reason. It really is a cool game system. Just needs more games and really there are 4 coming out in the next few months and i still have 2 in my play log to get to so no gripes here anymore. 


This also takes into account i own other systems so i will not miss out on GTA5, BF4 or FF15.

@juboner My main reason of buying WiiU was DK, i have not played Wii previously until recently playing DK country returns and mario galaxy, i am eagerly waiting for DK tropical freeze and this game to me is like uncharted of ps3. I have actually become a fan of this franchise, i hope they bring more of DK games.

@YearoftheSnake5 Whoops, nevermind. I read it wrong, I thought you wrote the 3DS. Still, the Wii U is going to seriously pick up steam starting in the fall. It's going to be the same story with the Wii U as it was with the 3DS.

 @kanageddaamen @Thegamer16 @b74kd3th He practically lives on here. He got busted by the moderator a few days back and gave it 'but he started it first' like he was in a school playground. The reality is he's a little boy with a chip on his shoulder and takes it on Gamespot Nintendo articles! Just go look at any Nintendo page on here, he's all over it with his pettiness!
