Which game will be the next BIG game for the Wii?

#1 Posted by Mushir (2389 posts) -

So far in my opinion its been Twilight Princess, Metroid, Galaxy and Brawl. So what do you guys think might become the next great game for the Wii? I think it could become The Conduit. It looks very promising to me.

Fuk knows, it looks like animal crossing is going to be the biggest release for the wii in the coming year. i havent really seen anything that interests me enough to say its a big release, lets just hope they can spit out another Mario, zelda or metroid game so us core gamers get something. third party developers need to develop something worthwhile instead of us relying on nintendo to keep the wii going and keep us satisfied.

Mario sluggers

The next really big game is probably gonna be Zelda.

#5 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

Dead Rising is, at least for me.

#6 Posted by robbob88 (326 posts) -

Probably Animal Crossing.

Why do you say Tiger Woods 2010?

The next "big" game will be Animal Crossing... unfortunately. The next BIG game (for me at least) will be the next Zelda. Someone might be able to make a pretty good game with Wii Motion Plus, but we'll see.

I think your looking at along time down the road. Atleast mid 2009. There is not one game currently announced that I think will be AAA.

#11 Posted by Dark_Link142 (377 posts) -

Who knows? Maybe it'll be the next Zelda or Pikmin 3. Maybe even the much rumoured Kid Icarus. At the moment, there doesn't seem to be anything HUGE right now.

Of course, Tales of Symphonia 2, Little Kings Story, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers are just 3 to mention that are looking great. But who knows when we might get some more info on FFCC: CB.

Animal Crossing and Tales of Symphonia 2.

For the lulz, presumably.

I'm really excited for Tales of Symphonia 2. That one is the next big game for me.

#16 Posted by Mario_Galaxy_Fan (116 posts) -

Difficult one probably Animal Crossing  but it could also be Sonic and the Black Knight.

#17 Posted by Earthbounder (308 posts) -

Wario Land is going to be pretty big for me. But I guess it will be Animal Crossing.

#18 Posted by chazer127 (213 posts) -

Animall Crossin, Sonic ATBK and Wario Land are big for me.

#19 Posted by RyShe (110 posts) -

Wii sports 2, no question.

#20 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

Sadly Wii Sports 2. For me though it's going to be Fatal Frame 4

I think the games mentioned there seem pretty promising.  And then the Conduit, Fatal Frame 4, Tenchu 4, Dead Rising,  Wario Land, Sonic Black Knight, and Animal Crossing.  I guess that there are some good games coming out.  As for BIG, probably Zelda.
#22 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1563 posts) -

It's either the next Pikmin, Starfox, or Zelda.

#23 Posted by Thunder (390 posts) -

who knows all there games seem to be for casual gamers. The next big game will probably be Zelda because thats how fast they are releasing hardcore games for the Wii

#24 Posted by Jordan23 (1000 posts) -

Dead Rising and Animal Crossing are going to be the next "BIG" thing.

#25 Posted by ThomasP (1661 posts) -

Animal Crossing: City Folk or Wario Land: The Shake Dimension.

#26 Posted by Willy105 (4691 posts) -

For this year, the heavy hitters are Wario Land, MadWorld, The Conduit, and some others.

But this is the Wii's 3rd year, and by history, big years go one year and then the year after the next year.

Sadly? Why sadly? Wii Motion Plus looks amazing.

MadWorld is 09, I believe.

PS3 and 360 don't have that problem with nothing coming out. They have great games every other month.

If Animal Crossings On-line is not a big confusing ass cluster of numbers, and Voice Chat works well, then Animal Crossing.  If not maybe the Conduit, but that would have to blow everyones head off in terms of awesomeness.

If you look at the facts (sales), Metroid Prime 3: Corruption wasn't a BIG game...


Not to say that it's not a good game.. But perhaps you should consider these BIGGER games...

Mario Party 8
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
Wii Fit
Mario Kart Wii
Super Paper Mario
Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

Now, I'm not saying that these games are the best (gameplay-wise, graphics-wise, etc.), but all these games (along with Wii Sports, Wii Play, and the games you mentioned) sold more than two million copies worldwide (except for MP3; selling 1.3+m).


Next big games? The only immediate game that comes to mind as selling a lot besides anything made by Nintendo is Guitar Hero: World Tour. That should, and hopefully will, be really big.

For me it will be Spore.

Ding Ding Gimmick Aventures Melee Galaxy.

#33 Posted by WolfODonnell (39 posts) -

The only ones I'm looking foward to are:

  • A new Zelda game
  • A new Mario game
  • A new Starfox game (don't kill this franchise Nintendo! ;(  )

But out of the announced ones, I'm looking foward to Animal Crossing, and that's it.
#34 Posted by MikPick (333 posts) -

Animal Crossing should be promising.

#35 Posted by RowdyRob (206 posts) -

Not much Wario Land love ? =[

#36 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

I think it will be MadWorld and Animal Crossing.

WiiSuicide.

Originally planned out to be released during the drought of good Wii Games it allows the pissed off gamers to feel what it's like to commit suicide and maybe get just a little closer to happiness, or depression. The choice is yours.

That's not even remotely funny...

Dead Rising!!!! I love that game

#40 Posted by xv0id (61 posts) -

I just want more 3rd party games that are NOT crap. Or a new Nintendo IP that makes use of the Wii fully. WiiMusic is a sad joke, its more of a glorified tech demo.

Screw WiiSuicide. WiiPorn is were the bussiness is at
#43 Posted by gabeyu (9 posts) -

Wii Sports 2 will be the next biggest seller. And I"m sure they'll come up with another exercise game for the balance board. If you haven't tried it out, give No More Heroes a shot!

#44 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

Animal Crossing?

You know that Starfox Adventures for GCN was the last game Rare made before they were bought, right?

"On the horizon, Fragile and Fatal Frame 4 look like very special games, games that are developed with the strengths of the Wii in mind. Next year I would say PunchOut Wii and Kid Icarus.

The Conduit still looks like it needs a ton of work, some of those environments look ridiculously bland, I have seen better textures on a DS game to be quite frank. The control options look great though, as do NPC models and element effects. What concerns me though is all that eye candy in the front means none are capable in the environments to a degree needed. Voice Chat is essential in MP. It should be a good game if everything comes together but I am not expecting anything spectacular, it looks far to generic for my liking and lacks distinction.
"
Well, they development team is completed singleplayer and said that they are now only focusing on Multiplayer and polishing the heck out of everything. So let's hope it looks great by the time we get it. Because right now, it looks kind of mixed. Some of it looks great (character models, lighting) but some of the environments and textures look quite poor.
