With 2014, being a somewhat quiet year in terms of sales for Wii U units, the game scene however was quite exciting! Wii U had some stellar releases with Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Donkey Kong Country, just to name a few, 2015 has some new games, that might just revive the Wii U unit sales. Let’s take a look at our top 5 most anticipated Wii U Exclusives Coming in 2015!
#5. Xenoblade Chronicles X
Strange creatures, giant dinosaurs, hostile environments and a massive, open-world to explore it all in, in true sci-fi RPG style! With tons of customization and a deep battle system, Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the most exciting 2015 releases for the Wii U. If open world exploration is your thing, this will not disappoint.
#4. Devil’s Third
This first-and-third-person shooter with hack and slash elements, is something I’m personally excited to see. How they execute it will either make or break the game. Devil’s Third, combines modern military weaponry with ninja-style swordplay, has a deep and challenging online mode. How it finally turns out is anyone’s guess.
#3. Mario Party 10
It”s the 10th friggin edition of the ‘Mario Party’ series, and yet we’re excited by it. Why? Because you also get “Bowser Party” – Bowser Party is the new mode from this game. There will be five players instead of four. Up to four players control Mario and his friends with Wii Remotes, with the fifth player playing against them by using the GamePad to control Bowser. Mini Stars are replaced by Hearts. The goal of Bowser is to deplete all the other players hearts, whilst the goal of the other players is to make it to the end of the course with at least one heart between them. Bowser rolls multiple dice, corresponding to the number of other players available.
#2. Star Fox
This is the sixth Star Fox game, but what has us excited is that it’s the FIRST original title for the series to be released in nine years! If you’ve never played Star Fox, you’ve really missed out on something. Get a hold of this game as soon as it comes out. The game is set to release in 2015 before the launch of Legend of Zelda….speaking of which…..
#1. The Legend of Zelda
….is our MOST ANTICIPATED Wii U Game of 2015! Here are some crazy facts – this is going to be the 18th version of Zelda!! and the first version to be in full HD! (No! Wind Waker doesn’t count). Apparently, there’s going to be tons of exploration and freedom to explore in the 2015 version of Zelda, which is pretty exciting itself, knowing that the Zelda games, don’t give too much emphasis on that.
Other Wii U Exclusives to look forward to in 2015
- Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
- Yoshi’s Woolly World
- Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
- Mario Maker
Having said that, these are our most anticipated Wii U games coming out in 2015! Stay tuned for more!
