Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors are set for summertime debuts in Japan, but North America and Europe are still getting by with a nebulous and miasmic 2014 window. Just to recap - just in case - both games are Nintendo-published Wii U exclusives.

Hyrule Warriors sees Tecmo Koei bring its dynasty to the Zelda family, with Link taking on hordes of enemies at a time in fast-paced 3D action. Nintendo's previously stressed the game isn't a new installment in The Legend of Zelda series, and we already know a new, convention-rethinking entry is in development for Wii U.

Whereas with Bayonetta 2, what we know is Platinum's hack-and-slash is absolutely bonkers. We also know the sequel adds a two-player mode to the madness, and features both analog and touch-based controls. Oh, and Bayonetta sports a glam new do.

​Apart from Mario Kart 8, there are two other first-party Wii U games confirmed for the West this year. Monolith Soft's X is scheduled for sometime in 2014, while the console version of Super Smash Bros. is pinned for the winter. On the 3DS side, beyond the games confirmed for May and June there's the handheld Smash in the summer, and the only-just-announced Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby remakes for November.
