I think it's going to be an exciting year for Wii U owners, and these crossovers are just the icing on the cake. I don't even own Sonic Lost World yet and it's the one crossover I'm the most looking forward to.

Yes it does. It's one of the biggest crossovers in the entire industry

I don't think Smash Bros. will be out this year. (Also yes it is a crossover.)

I'd agree it's the year of cross over. There are lots of fans cross over the fact there is nothing to buy until MK8.

Cheap joke, but someone had to get it out the way.

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

I think the Wii U version will be out this year, not sure about the 3DS version

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

@Unca_Lz I don't know, man. It is imperative that they cram all those trophies in, after all.

the reality is nintendo is just starting to realize the market potential for crossovers because it sells to 2 different franchise fans.

Nope, I've got some backlog. as I pointed out it was a cheap joke. Doesn't hide the fact that Nintendo the games publisher has a three and a half month gap between Wii U releases, and only Mario Golf and Kirby for the 3ds.

@MrGawain Honestly, four games in three months (Yoshi's New Island, Mario Golf World Tour, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Mario Kart 8) sounds like a LOT, when you consider this is all coming from one company. One big company, mind you, that seems to have forgotten that April exists, but one company, nonetheless. To put it in perspective, MK8, Kirby 3D, and Mario Gold have all undoubtedly been in development since before the Wii U's launch. Yoshi's New Island is a different matter, as 2D platformers have gotten to a point with Nintendo that they can kinda just make them in a matter of months. BUT ANYWHO

My point is, we give them flack for this, but we do have to keep in mind that Nintendo is still just one company, and quality games take time that they don't have. 3rd party has all but abandoned Nintendo systems, and the reason isn't exactly hard to figure out. The install base is low, the system would require a dev team just to port a game, the hardware can't cover for terribad game design like it does on other consoles, and most importantly, when you put a 3rd party game next to a Nintendo game on the shelves, which do you think it gonna be bought faster?

In short, while we shouldn't back off and let the weak flow of games stand, we're hardly gaining anything by blaming Nintendo for our missing games.

You know, crossovers happen a lot. I don't think they would ever need their own year. It'd be kind of like a year of interquel. (Not that I think a character or series needs a year, but I will concede that specific intellectual property years would make more sense.)

Any game that brings together Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Metroid, Pokémon, Star Fox, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, Donkey Kong, Punch-Out!!, Pikmin, Sonic, Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and freaking Wii Fit together all in one game's a crossover in my book.
