Wii U Exclusives Release Date Calendar, What to Expect During 2014-2015
Exclusives are system-sellers and one of the chief reasons why fans buy a console. Both Xbox One and PS4 have a great line-up of exclusive titles for 2014-2015, but what about people who bought a Wii U?
Thus far, somewhat meek line-up of exclusives and lack of third-party developers’ support have cost the handheld quite a lot, but things seem to be different now. At least, Nintendo is trying to turn the tables with some of the most amazing titles announced for 2014-2015.
This post is solely dedicated to what you can expect in two years to come, especially if you’re planning to buy the console.
