Nintendo has unveiled some sure to be stellar Wii U games since this year’s E3 such as Pikmin 3, Arkham City: Armored Edition, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and New Super Mario Bros. U, and intriguing games like Wonderful 101 and Zombi U. The company even revealed Bayonetta 2 recently. However, with a lack of some big first party names at launch or even scheduled for release within the next year (that we know of), many gamers are still feeling a bit skeptical about Nintendo’s new hardware.
In the most recent episode of Game Trailers TV
, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime reassured the skeptical Nintendo fans that the company’s top people including Retro Studios and (the man himself) Shigeru Miyamoto are currently developing some “fantastic” projects for the system.
"Mr. Miyamoto and the team at EAD are working on fantastic projects. Rest assured that Retro is working on a fantastic project. We've got big games in development that are coming that are going to continue to drive the install base of the system."
Hmmm. What could these mystery games be? Could Retro be developing a new DKC or Metroid title? Could it be shifting focus to another Nintendo franchise? What about Miyamoto’s project? Is it the new IP he’s been talking about? When will these projects be revealed?
Well, Reggie provided the answer to one of these questions, as he said these projects will likely be revealed at E3 2013. Now he did say they could be revealed before then or maybe even a bit later than that, but E3 is looking to be the most likely time.
I’m sure if you’ve been interested in the Wii U or have it pre-ordered, this news will add to your excitement. If you’re still unsure about the console does the promise of these new mystery games help sway you towards investing in a Wii U?
Personally, I can’t wait to see what Mr. Miyamoto and the folks at Retro have up their collective sleeves!
