After two years, Nintendo still struggles to sell the Wii U.
The video game giant wants to change that in its new lineup. Nintendo has very little coming out this fall, but the combination of Super Smash Brothers and Hyrule Warriors might just give Nintendo the boost they need to sell more units.
If you are fan of dynasty warriors and a fan of the legend of Zelda, you’ll love Hyrule Warriors. The game plays similar to what you’ve come to know in the Dynasty Warrior’s franchise. There are a lot of on-screen enemies, outrageously over-the-top combos, but instead of playing as a general from the Chinese epic, “Romance of the Three Kingdoms,” you play as one of over a dozen confirmed characters from the Legend of Zelda series.
Along with the Legendary Hero Himself, people will also be able to take control of Princess Zelda, Impa, Demon King Ganon and many more. Hyrule Warriors will support two player co-op but instead of classic split screen, one player will play on the television screen and the other will play on the Wii U touch pad.
Possibly the most exciting game of the year is Super Smash Brothers. Super Smash Brothers is the fourth instalment of the franchise and is coming out first on the 3DS and later on the Wii U.
Just recently the full roster was leaked and most of the characters from the previous instalments will return, along with a handful of new ones like the dog from the NES classic Duck Hunt. Nintendo is also releasing an add on to the Wii U that will allow players of Super Smash Brothers to use their old GameCube controllers, which is essential while playing this competitive fighter.
With these two games and a few smaller and largely unimportant games, Nintendo is hoping to keep the momentum that they have gained from this summer’s release of Mario Kart 8 and sell some more Wii U’s.
