At least, Nintendo’s financial support seems to suggest that the new 3D Mario and Mario Kart games will be out by March 2014, since they make this statement:
Beginning in March and continuing through the rest of the calendar year and into 2014, Nintendo will release a cavalcade of strong, fan-favorite software titles for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. New entries in the Mario Kart, Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, LEGO City, Wii Fit and Pikmin franchises will help Nintendo regain momentum for Wii U.
In other words, you can pretty much expect either Mario Kart U or the next 3D Mario game to be out by Christmas 2013 and maybe the new Wii U Zelda game to be out by 2014. Looks like Nintendo’s sure giving people a lot more reasons to buy a Wii U in the foreseeable future…
Do you think these new games will help the Wii U gain momentum again? And does the absence of Super Smash Bros 4 mean that this is a fairly definite list of the games coming soon and that said title will be more like a 2015 release?
