The big announcements included:
- An HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
- Zelda for the Wii U in development
- A new Mario game
- A new Mario Kart game
- A new Yoshi game
- Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
- Bayonetta 2
- A new game from Monolith Soft (possibly a new Xeno[blade] game)
- Wii Party sequel
- Miiverse coming to cell phones
- Virtual Console on Wii U (with fully customizable controls!)
- Classic games coming to the Wii U eShop for $0.30 each
That said, there's a lot more to be done with a Wii U now. Granted, it's still very dependent on Nintendo itself for providing content, but Nintendo's first-party content has always been strong and most importantly, it moves systems. The lack of a Wii Sports is still troubling, especially as they've chosen to go ahead with a new Wii Party game instead (at least they didn't announce a new Mario Party game... that game truly is violence-inducing).
If you're a Mario or Zelda fan and still haven't gotten a Wii U, getting one now seems like a no-brainer. But if you're not a huge fan and don't have a Wii U, have they reached a tipping point for you yet? What would make you buy a Wii U?
Personally, I'm a big RPG player so the lack of such games on the Wii has made me skeptical of buying a Wii U. I'm taking a Shin Megami Tensei/Fire Emblem crossover as a good sign, even if it's not an RPG. But I'm not going to take the plunge just yet.
