Wii U worth purchasing for the new Mario game?

#1AncientAstroPosted 11/12/2013 9:30:48 AM
I think it looks very charming personally even though I was hoping for a full fledged 3D game in the vain of Mario 64 and Sunshine. I also never played the new Super Mario bros U.

No. Wait until more games you want are released, as the price will likely be lower by then, and the console does not really have any must play titles.

if not no

Depends on how much money you have to spend. You got:

2D Mario + Luigi U
3D Mario
Wind Waker HD
Pikmin 3

plus some 3rd party exclusives like ZombiU and Wonderful 101.


And all that is just to hold you over until Donkey Kong comes out in February, then Mario Kart sometime between April and June, (then a summer drought), then Smash Bros and hopefully Zelda.

Do you like playing games while watching tv? Do you own several Wii motes and a nice collection of Wii games? Do you only use a tablet to surf the web and play games around the house?

If you answered yes, then the Wii u is worth a purchase at this point in time. If you answered no keep track of future exclusives and buy if and when you think appropriate.

I agree with the first part.
I'm too lazy to write the must have games, that are out...

No, this console isn't worth it.

I would say so. 3D World looks phenomenal.

As for other "must have" games, I would also recommend...
-Nintendo Land
-New Super Mario Bros. U
-New Super Luigi U
-Zombi U
-LEGO City Undercover
-Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
-Pikmin 3
-Wind Waker HD
-The Wonderful 101
-Sonic Lost World
-Rayman Legends

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, X, and much more are coming out next year too.

It really just depends on how many of these games interest you.

I own a Wii U and I would say no. The only reason I'm keeping mine is because I have a 5 year old daughter who enjoys it.
