Those all seem very likely.

Kirby's Epic Yarn 2 isn't happening. Kirby games usually are experiments for Nintendo and their respective console. Also Kirby games usually aren't announced so early in a consoles life cycle. I doubt it'll be epic yarn 2.

Ya know, if the Wii U is actually going to be outputting games in 1080p, I might actually pick one up early for Revengeance. I know I'll get one eventually for Bayonetta 2- there's no way I'm going to not play that.

That was before they launched Kirby's Epic Yarn during Easter and made a shit ton of money, and before they had a controller like this. It's very easy to imagine what could be done to the manipulation of the environment and co'op play, given the Yarn style.

These are all pretty reasonable. The only real surprise here is Doom 4, which I would have expected to be targeted at much higher end hardware than the Wii U.

Finally they're bringing Endless Ocean Red World out in NA

There's no way on Doom 4 when we know literally nothing about it other than that it's been "in development" for years.

It's being made for current consoles, the Wii U should be able to handle it with no problems, unless Doom 4's Rage reborn...

Found this on Wiki:

"In addition, Carmack said that Doom 4, with regards to consoles, will run at 30 frame/s for single player and 60 frame/s in multiplayer, stating that "you can't have 30 guys crawling all over you at 60 frames per second at this graphics technology level because it's painful. -- So [in single player] we can have 30 demons crawling all over you on there."

Oh. Yeah you're right. I didn't realize they were so far along on the game already.
