Probably, but the customers seemed legit looking forward to it then just asking for one no questions asked. Even so, I'm planning to go to the store before they open to get mine for sure like the Wii U.

I'm sure the Scalpers have 50 online orders each anyhow... :lol:

The fight stick is most interesting, especially since the Wii U never got one. Big fighter on the way, or does Nintendo has its own plans like a new IP or even a Pokken Tournament port/sequel?

Retailer listings in America suggest a $250 or $300 price point and 1 suggests there'll be 15 games at launch.

I remember the CVsT one, always meant to nab one but always put it off. :lol: Of course the Wii printed money so it made sense to make a couple, but of course the Wii U....

Want


Docking stations to be sold seperate and interchangable so I can just move it to any TV in the house any time I want.

Some sort of trophy/ achievement system. Coins would seem to be the logical choicde for Nintendo.

Region Free - no excuse to be region locked.

An option to hook it up to a TV without the docking station. For hotel use erc.

An updated version of Starfox Zero with standard controls. There is a good game in there hiding behind the control system.

Waverace, Fzero, or Pilotwings to be announced.

A follow up to Mario 3D world. A game I consider one of the bet I have played in the last few years.

A new Mariokart that expands on the idea of adding characters and tracks from other games.
