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.

@arronishere At E3, Reggie seemed to confirm that Captain Toad is a Holiday 2014 title. (Of course, there can be delays. For this game though, since Toad is quite limited in terms of movement, the testing process would probably be more straight-forward than for many other games.)

Current Top 15: Splatoon, MK8, Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Super Mario Maker, Affordable Space Adventures, SM3DW, Yoshi's Woolly World, Stealth Inc. 2, LEGO City: Undercover, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Runbow, Bayonetta 1+2, SSB U, Wind Waker: HD

I was talking more about if it's a full and proper game rather than if it comes out in time.

No there isnt. The Xbox One has more games too.

But there are some good games coming to the Wii U very soon. With a nice amount of variety too. Most Wii U owners seem fine with what's coming and that's all that matters at the end of the day.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

There are more exclusives coming out on Wii u than the other systems but the PS4 makes up for it in actual third party support. 2015 looks ace though, and 2014 to an extent; bayo 2, sm4sh, lbp3 last of us etc

i'll never understand these threads..

do some of you people actually ONLY have a Wii U?
there are SO many games getting released each month... on the Wii U, 3DS XL, PC.. and also on PS4 and X1

currently i have a laptop, 3ds xl and a wii u... there are SO many games.. nobody could possibly play them all.. a few days ago (E3) a lot of Nintendo games were announced.. so much stuff to play, but people still talk about "software droughts" :/

surely you all have a PC as well, right? and most of the users here probably also have a 3DS/XL, so where's the problem?

do you want Nintendo to release 4 wii u games each month? quality over quantity.

You're currently on a site called "NintendoLife" ...

I actually ONLY have a Wii U. But I don't see no drought, Mario Kart 8 and the free game (Wind Waker HD, btw) will keep me entertained for months, then there's Wii Sports Club and a number of games on eShop. Starting September things are getting pretty massive, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Captain Toad, etc... What drought, people?

Id like to think that most people don't just play Nintendo games on this site, granted I don't get a lot of time to play, but play a nice variety of games on different systems. Eliminating any droughts. And we just got MK8

Well we are half way through the year and Ninty have only released 2 games for the Wii U and with the expection of Fit Music the support form the 3rd party has only been movie tie in games so yeah, people have the right to complain, even the 3DS is starting to have a games drought. If Ninty can't support a console with consistent releases they it should be questioned to what are they doing.

Personally I'm quite content, I've got Game & Wario, Zelda Wind Waker & Sonic Lost World to finish off before Hyrule Warriors comes out.

There has been quite a few good indie releases lately that to me by far surpass the budget/mid-range range Nintendo titles, such as the NES Remixes, Dr. Luigi and Game & Wario. I have not yet completed Scram Kitty (since I now play that game for a level or so to save one or two additional cats in each gaming session). And I haven't completed Child of Light and a few others yet. And there are a couple of indie titles that I want to get that arrived around the time of the Mario cart release, so I'm not even close to get the VC titles I want to try.

I only have a Wii U and I'm not feeling a drought since I still have untouched games sitting on my hard drive. I honestly cannot imagine owning another console - just don't have the time (even if I was interested in what's on display for the other machines, which I'm not).

Eh june-august seems boring for Wii U but after that not really. Besides I'm sure more than half of this forum has at least one other platform to get games on.

On the contrary I feel there is an explosion of games from Nintendo not a drought. Smash Bros, bayonetta 1 and 2, hyrule warriors , sonic boom, captain toad, watch dogs, all the eshop games - there are too many Wii u games in 2014.

Too many games is a huge stretch...

Not if you plan on buying all that and you do more with your free time than play games...
