For any of you out there, Emily Rogers wrote this feature not too long ago which expresses her views on Nintendo's 2014 Wii U line-up and her concerns. I am recently worried at the line-up and the Wii U can't lose any momentum especially in its current position. Have a read and express your opinions. Im quite intrigued on what you think what will happen in 2014.

I can see where Emily Rogers is coming from. I think Nintendo needs to make getting Mario Kart 8 released in March their top priority. Plus, SSB MUST come out next year.

Miyamoto said that there will be a free-to-play Steel Diver game on Wii U in early 2014, ao thats an extea thing to look forward to. And he said that by Mario Kart 8's release, there will be a strong line up of games coming out on a monthly basis for Wii U.

Not to mention Iwata stating how there are several new games coming, but won't be revealed until we get closer to their release date to prevent the competition from imitating.

the problem is that we only have donkey kong for now... anything else we have no clue about. we don't even know anything about Yarn Yoshi!

Despite this article, I still believe that 2014 will be Wii U's comeback year.

We aren't through the holiday season yet. Let Nintendo focus on the end of 2013 before we start attacking them about 2014

EDIT: Also I don't remember Nintendo saying Donkey Kong was delayed because they had nothing early 2014. I thought it was delayed for extra polish?

I think she's too worried over delays. Yes, Nintendo is not afraid to delay a game, but she didn't consider the possibility that there could be new games announced close to their release dates too, as Iwata seemed to suggest. Nintendo could also release games in summer again like they did this year. There can't only be games in spring, fall, and winter anymore.

I personally wouldn't mind playing Donkey Kong and Mario Kart next Spring on top of all the games I'll be busy trying to catch up on from this year, but I know some people are insatiable and impatient. I still believe 2014 is going to be a big hit of a year for Wii U. The games that could really be in danger of getting delayed is the Super Smash Bros. games.

I think people worry way to much about this kind of stuff. I don't really care about what games I can anticipate for 6 + months. For me it's all about the present and the near future to an extent. If you keep worrying about the future the next thing you know is that you find yourself in a nursing home unable to bathe yourself and realize that you don't have much of a future left. I'm currently enjoying Wind Waker HD and after that I will be playing Super Mario 3d World. I'm happy and content with this and not sweating beyond that.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Agreed. Often forum folks and game journalists do worry about the future.

The sky is falling!

So, when Scott Moffitt said to Forbes magazine...
http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/55170/nintendo-a-st...
(the holiday season is) "just the start of a steady flow of great games coming to Wii U, with lots more to come in 2014."

He was just saying that because he wants Nintendo to be known as blatent liars, now. I mean, it would be great for business, right?

I haven't even begun to grab everything I still want from 2012, or 2013 for that matter. Has it occurred to anyone that not every game that will be released in the future is available for consideration? To say nothing of the ones in developement that are kept hush-hush until the 'time is right'? Or the ones that wont appear on any radar until their very release window?

I'm not worried in the least. You only have to browse Miiverse to see that numbers, happiness, and confidence is rising. The future is a lot brighter for Wii U than many folks would like you to believe.

I'm not worried. It may not be some super long list of games, but the games included are likely good enough that they'll keep selling for months on end anyway, and the people owning won't stop playing them after the first month or so.

I'd be more worried about a boring lineup filled with a bunch of mediocre/'good' games than a more sparse one filled with likely classics.
