Wii U News and Predictions
Today, like a few weeks ago, a Nintendo Direct was held that fundamentally changed the landscape of the dedicated console market. While last time, Pokemon X and Y were announced\, complete with trailer for the 3DS, this time the focus was the Wii U. The information given was that there would be a new Legend of Zelda title that would return "back to basics", Windwaker will be released for the Wii U complete with gamepad support. The Virtual Console will go live with all games having gamepad and Miiverse support. There will be a Yoshi title, Super Mario title, and Super Smash Bros title in the near future (at E3). I believe that we will also in the near future have some announcement relating to Super Mario Sunshine. Why? When the 3DS came out Luigi's Mansion 2 (Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon) and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time came out. We now have Windwaker, where is the Mario title other than the ambiguous 3D Super Mario title that was unveiled. Recently there have been Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Unless it is something totally new, I am going with Super Mario Sunshine 2.
