If we count Japanese games, VPW2 is the best wrestling game on the N64. If not, I give Revenge the advantage over No Mercy just based on the roster alone. It lacks the bells and whistles of No Mercy, but it has 3X as many great wrestlers to play as.

YES I WANT A RELEASE!!!!!! Especially since there's some romance in this-we hardly get romance in any 3ds games, and the ones we do get are limited to certain franchises (harvest moon, rune factory, fire emblem) so YES please release this. There are plenty of people who I believe would pick up this game. After the success of recent jrpgs like FEA and Bravely Default, I think it's safe to say there's an audience here for Langrisser.

@Sean_Aaron that's literly the only good one he made and put effort into. He said it's his top seller and paid for his dev kit many times over yet he continued to put less and less effort in. Heck poker dice solitare and toss an go are the same game. The only difference is one has multiplayer. He also promised extra block drop u stages in an update over a year ago. I don't think he ever realy intended to fulfill that.

I really want this game now. Looks super fun! I'll have to get it with the spare funds I'll have in my eShop account after buying Xenoblade Chronicles 3D off the eShop.

@IceClimbers I'm not convinced Halo 5 will release this year either. 343 have been spending so much time trying to fix MCC and in addition promising ODST for it. I could see something happening at E3 like Halo 5 coming in 2016 but while you're waiting you can play Halo Reach and Halo Wars for MCC.

I bought Block Drop U and I thought it was a decent puzzle game to play on the Gamepad - even showed it to my partner the other day.

I think it's a mistake to take interactions on fan forums and make that the basis of business decisions. Unless you've failed to even break-even I couldn't see abandoning a platform either, but hey I don't make games for a living...

Good article.

So... Star Fox, Shigeru Miyamoto's pair of experimental games becoming $40 games? Animal Crossing? There are some options.

As much as I'd like Nintendo to reveal some awesome looking Metroid game for Wii U 2015. That seems highly unlikely to me. Still: do want.

I'm wondering if this change could divert some resources to Star Fox to amp it up a bit. It's interesting to think about what that game will be like, but Miyamoto has stated there won't be too much story, right? That and his expectation that it could be finished in a year and a half even with the gameplay still being worked out means we are probably getting a smaller game. Perhaps much of the assets were being worked on before that was finalized, but that's a fast turn around no matter what. Time for a all-hands-on-deck boost to the game?

You know I'm almost more sad I won't see more Zelda at this E3 than I am about it not hitting the end-of-year target.

As far as business goes, Nintendo needs to make some awesome bundles and a significant price drop. Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros and Mario are still a powerful combination on a second console at the right price.

@Magrane To be fair, a lot of the reason Nintendo is in the place it is at is almost solely due to having a stigma for "kiddy games" that resulted from the Wii.

However, on topic, I agree with everyone else. I remember seeing their comments about intentionally making low-quality and cheap games because it wasn't worth putting effort into anything. That's all on you RCMADIAX. Release a quality game and maybe you wouldn't have this issue. Also a little PR training would do you wonders. Sometimes keeping your mouth shut is the right choice.

There is something oddly compelling about Space Invaders. If the classic game from the SNES VC was out for the Wii U I might not be interested, but those neon colours are quite enticing and remind me of Exidy arcade games...bring it to Europe!

This felt more like a summary than a review and didn't really try to sell my on "why" I should pick this up. But I guess it's kind of hard to review something like this since the creator himself said it's difficult to explain this game to someone without them actually playing it.

@IceClimbers I don't know where you're getting the information that it hurts Sony in the eyes of most PS4 owners. I own the console and am just as content waiting for Uncharted as everyone here is content waiting for Zelda. Doesn't hurt Sony in my eyes at all. There will be plenty of third parties and indies to keep me busy while I wait. Which is something I can't say nearly as much for Nintendo.

I also never mentioned that a 2015 Zelda would've stopped Nintendo from being viewed in a poor light. Obviously Zelda being released this year doesn't fix Nintendo's sparse release schedule (though it would've helped). My point was that holiday exclusives are not the biggest factors that determine a console's reputation for the year, which seemed to be what you were hinting at. I'm going to be glad to own a PS4 this holiday season because I know there will be plenty of games available. Exclusive or not.

Glad we agree on how sparse Nintendo's games have been content-wise lately though. They keep putting out these budget titles and there's nothing in the $60 dollar realm besides Zelda and maybe Xenoblade that has my attention. I want to see more games with meat on their bones, but all we get is mini-helpings. That's a trend I'm almost positive will continue until the Wii U dies and the NX launches, because why bother getting your devs to work on a huge game on a dying console when you could just put those developers to work on the next hardware (which might sell better)?

War Zone was awesome when it was new, but when THQ took over and came out with Wrestlemania 2000 and later No Mercy, it set the bar so high that those older ones are now complete garbage in comparison.

WWF No Mercy is still, to this day, my favorite wrestling game of all time and arguably the best ever period. I've yet to hear a good argument against it though.

@Funbunz The Persona Q soundtrack had only 4 songs on it, which was even worse. The CD was only available in The Wild Cards Special Edition for 80 bucks, so it was VERY disappointing (although it did have the full Maze of Life song, which was cool).
The art book for SMTIV was actually pretty good (in the USA anyways). It was better as a strategy guide than as an artbook.

I do agree though about quick and casual gaming, but that's something that's a consequence of technology and people will still buy a good lengthy game. It's why Legend of Zelda and Assassin's Creed games continue to do well.

Sounds like sour grapes to me. Do you really think a "stigma" is going to stop a gamer from buying a great game? I doubt a "stigma" would affect sales. In the end, it's quality (replayability, story, visual look, etc.). I don't think indie gamers are that childish to snub out developers. We just want to play games, man.

If you build it, they will come.

@RCMADIAX

"There is a stigma attached to my name on the Wii U eShop that I only make cheap software. Hence resulting in lower sales."

Hmm, that's an interesting comment to make. I seem to recall a certain conversation involving TreeFall Studios where you defended cheap software and that it was a "new normal." Wait let me find it, ah here it is.

"Everyone has their own method of making games. Time to move on people, cause the "Nintendo eShop has quality issues" record is getting overplayed. This is the new normal, get used to it."

It certainly sucks when we remember such conversations, doesn't it?

I have to wonder who you think is to blame for this. Perhaps that philosophy has been put to shame because games like Gunman Clive have raised the bar high, like it should be.

@FlaygletheBagel While true, the lack of a big holiday exclusive does hurt Sony in the eyes of most PS4 owners. 3rd party games may soften the blow in comparison to Nintendo, but they certainly do not in comparison to the Xbox One, as it has those games too and a big holiday exclusive (Halo 5).

Also, the significant lack of games in general was going to reflect poorly on Nintendo even if Zelda was releasing this year. Zelda wasn't going to change that.

Also, you're quite right about most of them not garnering a $60 price tag. The only games coming in the second half of the year that can justify that price tag are Yoshi, Xenoblade, and Devil's Third. Star Fox I honestly think is a $40-$50 budget title.

@Grumblevolcano Ahh, good to know. Thank you.

Have already bought the GBC VC Version and i'm happy with this.
Can't solve unfortunately all the Levels, no plan about the solution, the last Levels are really hard for me...
So, this version is enough for me, don't need more.

@IceClimbers Although not particularly helpful to most, the 2nd Xenoblade Chronicles X portion is still on their twitch channel (3 hours and 55 minutes into the day 3 stream). Looking at their E3 youtube playlist, that 2nd portion was accidentally selected as a private video given it's the only part of their E3 streams not available for everyone to watch.

@firstnesfan You sir are correct! Believe it or not, I only have that game for the past month and a half, I am now fan of the show. I can't believe it was unreleased in Europe, which means a lot of us never played the only true AKI wrestling game on GameCube.

But please stay way from the Super Famicom game... if you must, play the Famicom one instead.

There's nobody to blame but himself. A console is not the right market for glorified smart phone games. People can play those types of games for free on their phone or browser. Why would we pay for them? You can spend 5 or 10 dollars more and get such a great experience with a fully fleshed out game. He's not going to find much success anywhere else with releases like this. Just saying.

I am willing to bet the majority of gamers won't boycott some indie dev as if tey were some multinational corporation.
