Um........ if anything 2014 has MORE games than this year.

Mario Kart 8
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
Super Smash Bros U and 3DS
Watch Dogs
Wii Fit U
Bayonetta 2
X
Zelda U

All hard hitters and system sellers. And most games probably havent even been announced yet. C'mon people....

No chance Zelda U comes out in 2014, and Watch_Dogs for the Wii-U will very likely be cancelled.

Have any proof to back that prediction up?

About Watch_Dogs? Ubisoft's relationship with Nintendo is getting strained due to all the money they have lost by releasing games on the Wii-U. When the PS4 and Xbox One are released and sell 3-4 million units each by January, Ubisoft will realize they don't need to support the Wii-U anymore and will instead divert all resources to improving the PS3/PS4/360/Xbox One versions of the game and only release on those systems. Several other Ubisoft next-gen releases have been announced that aren't coming to Nintendo, and their support for the company is coming to an end. When the new Assassins Creed game tanks on the Wii-U, that will be the last straw.

I would be willing to bet money this is what happens.

@JohnRedcorn I can't wait to see your face when it turns out the Wii U version of Watch Dogs is better than all the other platforms... just like Rayman Legends. The Wii U version sales will prolly be awful though.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Since it won't come out, I guess we can all imagine in our minds that it will be the best version!

Maybe UbiSoft and Sega will join up and release it in a two pack with Aliens: Colonial Marines?

Right now my money is on seeing a UFO before I see Watch_Dogs for the Wii U.

What's ironic is how third parties want their games to sell on the Wii U but refuse to give them full support, thus giving no one a reason to buy them in the first place. Tell me again what Nintendo should do with the Wii U

Yea it doesn't take a genius to realize that the 1st half of this year will be very barren for the Wii U.

@Ryno +1 for the Duane avatar.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Exactly. Nintendo can't seem to catch a break with many of the major 3rd parties making half-***** ports then complain that nothing is selling.

On the topic of a 20124 software drought, Nintendo, if they honestly want to save the Wii U, cannot, I repeat, CANNOT allow it to happen. Which is hopefully why they've been expanding development teams and making new buildings for said teams.

Of course, January was already pretty sparse, but that's downtime for gaming in general though.

But January had the full launch of Wii Fit U, I know it turned out to be a dud compared to Wii Fit for Wii but there was a release in January. I think Nintendo is waiting for DK to launch then like a Week after have a new Nintendo Direct and show off more small games like Dr. Luigi, such as Dillon's Rolling Western for Wii U or a Pushmo type game that uses the GamePad screen in a unique way. I think would be cool to see a DRW on Wii U with some possible Co-op stuff

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

So any 1st party releases this summer or nothing until fall? Last E3 Nintendo put out a release calendar graphic but I haven't seen one this year

Pushmo World comes in a week. But no retails announced, I think.

July - Wii Sports Club
September - Hyrule Warriors
October - Bayonetta 2

There doesn't seem to be anything in August, but I'm guessing that they'll fill that with eShop releases.

Drought? Fascinating, captain.

There is a lot more than on PS4. Most awesome games are pushed to 2015. Bayonetta 2 in October is enough for me.

It seems to be mainly June-August that has the drought. There's at least one major title releasing every month after that.

Meh, I'm fine for this year. My must haves this year are Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1&2, Scribblenauts Unmasked (still not out in the UK yet!), Lego Batman 3 and Smash Bros for retail and Pushmo World, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, '90s Arcade Racer and Armillo on eshop plus maybe Captain Toad, Watch Dogs and Devils Third depending on how they turn out.

Gonna keep myself really busy, this Summer, with a few titles that I've been wanting for a while and the backlog I now have on my Wii U for downloading games and then not finishing them. This should keep me until Hyrule Warriors with ease.

A nifty calendar (Updated 9/13/15)
The UGXloggery ... really needs an update.
