No doubt they need some form of third party support, but this game hardly seems like any more of a loss than missing out on, say, Deus Ex or Tomb Raider...

In all seriousness what I'd like to see from Square Enix is a new Bushido Blade game that harkens back to the two original Playstation titles. I almost want a PSOne to play them again.

So the Wii U not having a game by a popular deb who worked on a well regarded game (human Revolution) and one that's being highly anticipated (tomb Raider) is a good thing now?

WAT!

I gotta say, Square-Enix "was" popular. Their latest stuff doesn't compare to their earlier stuff (include those before Squaresoft and Enix merged).

As a dev of blargSNES, just stop with the claims that o3DS can emulate SNES games accurately @ 60fps. It cannot.

I was really hoping for big 3rd party support this time. Even with a low attach rate I figured they'd still make as a whole as far as multiplatform games are concerned.

Oddly enough, I believe some games are coming to Wii U that remain secret at this time for whatever reason.

Maybe we'll hear more on the next ND. GTA5, Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell didn't get a straight up "no plans" answer.

Also why isn't EA hyping the Need for Speed port?

Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

That's why their best games are all Dragon Quest remakes.

(I'm currently looking forward to DQVII. Maybe I can trade in Kingdom Hearts and Theatrhythm to help pay for it.)

...in my pants.

It's hard for me to miss what I don't know about. There are very few must-haves for me when it comes to games. Titles I'm not already familiar with don't fall into that category; hence my never owning an X-Box or a Playstation since the little grey original one. I'm sure this could be brilliant, but if nothing by Square-Enix ever appears on the Wii U - even the Virtual Console - I won't regard it as a "fatal flaw" in the system or a sign that it is in trouble.

Tomb Raider? Seriously that game was always lame!

I concur, I feel the true test of a system is what innovative benchmarks are erected, whether that be by well-established studios or newer and/or small indie ones. Personally for the WiiU, I feel like its real test is how well Nintendo reaches out to the lesser-knowns and how well they promote those studios through the shop. So far, they're doing an admirable job.

Where I DISAGREE is that Tomb Raider became lame ONLY after the second one; felt those had pretty engaging stories, mood-full environments and music, challenging puzzles and an overall challenging level design. Those first two games made great strides in the "survival-adventure" genre and are classics to this day.

WiiU MUST have another Baten Kaitos iteration, certainly!

Off topic, but is there a release date for DQVII yet?

So what your saying is that you're afraid of new things? Wow that must suck cause you have missed a lot of great stuff then. It's kinda like you just said 'I only watch movies that are sequels'

And Tomb Raider did get terrible but this looks like the return of awesome to the series.

The only reaction I can muster to this news is "...Hey, a new video game!" I don't understand how anyone could have a stronger or more nuanced opinion.

Not yet. I'm guessing at the next ninty direct or E3.

No, that's not what I said. I don't get upset about games I've never played going to systems other than my own and I generally need to have some feeling about a game before it sells me on the machine. The reason I don't own a PS3 or an XBox 360 is because neither system has anything on it that makes me say "wow, I have to get one of those!"

And my non-feelings about Tomb Raider probably stem from my general dislike of early 3D games and the general rubbish gameplay of 3D platformers (Super Mario Galaxy excepted) generally. I know other people like the series, but I don't understand why. I can still remember people posting about how "hot" low-poly Laura Croft was in the first game and it's still totally bizarre to me.

Well this new Tomb Raider really isn't like the older games at all.

Saw it being reported today that at the D.I.C.E. conference overall Wii U talk has been very negative with more people talking about cancelled projects than green lighted ones.

WAT!

As someone who had an Atari Jaguar at launch I think it's safe to say that the Wii U has nothing to fear really. You couldn't get worse third party support than that machine had and quality first-party titles were few and far between. The doom and gloom is overstated and the absence of EA and Activision isn't going to sink the Wii U so I'm not going to lose faith no matter how many posts appear saying this or that game isn't getting ported to it.

shingi_70

But you must admit lack of these games are bad for the consumers. With prices on consoles going up a lot of people will be grabbing only one conolse for this generation.

Its the biggest reason I waited on getting a Wii U despite having the coin to get it.

WAT!

As much as I admire Nintendo's ability to sell consoles purely for its first party titles, it seems you're forgetting that in the last Nintendo direct, Nintendo itself admitted it was struggling to put together a decent release schedule of HD games on the Wii U.

That's why it is partnering with the likes of Atlus for collaborative games. It's a fine idea since it pads out the release schedule with exclusive titles, but it's a lower-margin play for Nintendo since the rewards of the project need to be spread around.

Longer term Nintendo is really going to need to pull in more substantial licensing fees to compensate.

Whether you personally like the games of Activision, SE and EA or not is rather irrelevant to whether Nintendo needs them or not.

It's only bad for consumers if they really want these games. If these are system-sellers for someone then I shouldn't think they'd be buying a Wii U given the lack of any announcement.

If a game of interest appears on the platform, great, but I'm not going to bemoan the absence of every third party release that takes my fancy and doesn't make it to the Wii U. Just a different philosophy I guess: I tend to enjoy what I have.

I'm confident Nintendo will do what is required to keep their system afloat. I'm sure they can make do without the full backing of large third-party publishers. EA, Ubisoft and Activision may only throw a few bones their way, but I don't think the Wii U is going to collapse if there isn't another Madden game on it. I certainly don't think we need a thread for every third party release that doesn't get released on a platform.
