Latest Nintendo Video Showcases Wii U 2013-2014 Exclusives

Everyone’s buzzing with excitement over the release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which is just around the corner. While both Sony and Microsoft have pretty hogged the press these last couple of months, Nintendo also did some announcements for their struggling Wii U console.

Nintendo wants to make sure that they don’t just sit out the remainder of the year forgotten and has released a video showcasing their exclusive Wii U titles for 2013 and 2014. Some of these will also make it to their dominant 3DS handheld.

Here’s a breakdown for the titles mentioned in the video.

Titles available right now:

  • Super Mario Bros. U
  • New Super Luigi U
  • Lego City Undercover
  • Pikmin 3
  • The Wonderful 101
  • Art Academy Sketchpad

Titles coming later this year:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
  • Wii Party U
  • Sonic Lost World
  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
  • Super Mario 3D World

Titles coming in 2014:

  • Super Smash Bros
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Bayonetta 2
  • New title being worked on by Monolith Software.

Earlier this summer Nintendo announced a Wii U development kit that is being handed out to everyone for free. With struggling sales to the point that even the retailers no longer have any faith in the console, Nintendo hopes that sending out dev kits to every third-party house will ensure more titles to be added in Wii U’s library.
