Over the past week we've shared a mini series of videos from "Nintendo Minute", a regular YouTube show from Nintendo of America. Its hosts have been shortlisting their favourite 3DS, eShop and Wii U games, and in the final part confirmed each other's top choices.
We should think only one guess is required to predict the Wii U game of the year for both presenters, though there was a little more of a surprise factor in the other two categories. Overall, we'd certainly support the view that all of the named games are must-haves.
Check it out below and let us know what you think of the choices.
LOL what a nice video. I can't wait for 2014. The 3DS and Wii U are gonna get even better!!!!
Those sweaters! I badly need an 8-bit luigi sweater
Almost everything good in 2013 was 3ds. Hoping Wii U catches on in 2014, and after this past direct, it looks like it might just be.
WHY ISN'T WII FIT U NUMBER 1!!!!!!!!!!
Ugly Nintendo sweaters!?
Uhm adorable, especially the gal!
Some really genuine Nintendo enthusiasm, which is always refreshing.
Was the treasure chest ever available in the US?
Would've loved the chest but couldn't get one thx 2 amazon
I love the WiiU part. I bet that in their heads they were like "there really isnt anything else to choose from."
@Blastoise-san The 3DS getting any better? IMPOSSIBLE!
A link between worlds already won GOTY on several sites, just the best game I've played in a long time
I really need to finish Fire Emblem. Too busy on Pokemon Y and Link Between Worlds though:)
NL, when we able able to vote our GOTY here?
eShop: The Zelda Oracle games.
@SkywardLink98 ... But what if it ISN'T impossible? Imagine that...
The 3ds had a long and slow start, but I never even thought about getting rid of it. Here's hoping the Wii U will make a similar comeback. I used to work in a gameshop, and saw lots of weird, badly informed customers. Some even saying the PS2 slim model was actually the PS3. Funny detail: PS3 was already released for a while then. Or the 3DS was just a DS that could display 3d gameplay á la N64. Sure, since not a single DS game used polygons, right? And with a huge gap between launch titles and the next load of games, I'm quite positive more people will buy a Wii U as a 'secondary' console, especially when X, Mario Kart and Smash Bros arrive.
My 3DS GOTY is Animal Crossing: New Leaf and my Wii U GOTY is Super Mario 3D World! Overall, Zelda and New Super Luigi U came close, but my GOTY of all platforms is... Super Mario 3D World!
My 3DS favorite of the year is A link between worlds, but i don't have a Wii U so
"shortlisting WiiU games". Now there's some involuntary humor.
Super Mario 3D World, huh? Touch choice.
Surprised you haven't posted that LoZ won Gamespot's overall GOTY award. In a year with The Last Of Us and GTA V, that's pretty awesome. Took me 26 hours to beat it and I loved every minute. Awesome game.
What's with people thinking Super Mario 3D World is pretty much the only Wii U game that's been released this year worth thinking about? I didn't get on with it so much but there's been The Wonderful 101, and on top of that Pikmin 3, Lego City Undercover, Sonic Lost World, Game & Wario, Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (which I've poured over 100 hours into playing online with friends now)...but then Mario launches and it's like none of these other games exist any more? Wow.
Mario's superb, but Monster Hunter 3, and probably Lego City Undercover would've been my picks.
For Wii U, I personally would've chosen Pikmin 3. Loved thAt game so much. Though Mario 3D World deserves it more I guess.
