Nintendo showed us Skyward Sword for the Wii, which looks to be a good Zelda game, but the Wii U is not coming out untill late next year...So whats Nintendo going to give us to play untill then? 
I can name only one game thats coming out for the Wii that I actully want to play, kinda sad no, have Nintendo just given up on the Wii now?

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 
  • Kirby Wii (name not final), which seems to support New Super Mario Bros.-like multiplayer. 
  • Rhythm Heaven.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles. 
  • Localizations of Pandora's Tower and The Last Story, hopefully.

@Hizang: It'll last just fine if you have more than just a Wii. 
 
Which you should.

Yoshi's Racing. There will be different Yoshis and the Mario characters will ride them. You can almost win but get eaten at the last second by the Yoshi behind you. Mario doesn't use whips, he uses fireballs to make the Yoshi go faster. 
 
Well of course I made this up though lol.

Expect Skyward Sword and Kirby Wii to be the last big Wii games.

You'll get Zelda, only Zelda, and be happy about Zelda.

They're doing the same thing they did to the Gamecube when they announced the Wii. Kirby Wii and Skyward Sword seem to be the last big Nintendo games on the console, which is sort of a shame but I guess they'll do.

It's Nintendo dammit, they have literally no good third party support. They wont make any new games besides what's already announced because there too busy working on their next big bomb. deal with it.

I haven't been playing a single Wii game since it first launched and I finished Zelda. It has literally been sitting there collecting dust and revving up occasionally for some Virtual Console action. Decided with all the nice releases scheduled and the interesting hardware of Wii U that I went out and spent $100 and picked up 6 games from Amazon, Gamestop, and Gamefly. Among those are Paper Mario, Super Mario, Kirby, and for some reason Zelda again. With all that I missed, hopefully, should hold me over until they release something good.

Break out your wallet and buy about 30 games.

I doubt they would give you anything but ads and trailers. Now what will Nintendo sell you is a different story.

people are missing games

marioparty 9

fortune street

new dragon quest game

poke park 2

zelda skyward sword

kirby return to dreamland

wii play motion-out

plus there is third party titles like

driver san francisco

wwe 2012

madden 12

nascar unleashed

call of duty modern warefare 3

and a rumored 007 title is supposed to be in the works -not related to goldeneye reloaded , tie in for the upcoming bond film ,

with that said , i think thats more then enough -not counting cheap quick pick me up games ,

people call shovelware i dont call them shovelware , because most of them are racing games , that people just over look , such as doge challenger vs charger camero vs corvette ford racing- probably the biggest franchise of the 3 i mentioned , since it started on the ps1

with that said you got those plus wii ware and vc games ,

and it dont stop because wii u is out , -wii u is actually gonna be a continuation of the wii brand, itll be fully bc with all your wii motes so dont sell them and accessories ,

dont do it , youll need them for multiplayer ,

so with that said that pretty much covers you plus who knows what can be announced in wiis final year , --- remember wii u wont come til end of 2012 most likely ,

and --- that leaves that whole year and who knows nintendo may let it stay out for as long as demand stays there , -they did this with n64 snes and gc to , gcs last game= madden 08 so ,

and n64s last games were marioparty 3 tony hawks 3 perfect dark ,

snes was donkey kong country 3 and kirby dreamland 3 well into the n64 gen so , any thing is possible for a 90 million seller console look at ds, even with demand for the system droping , its stil got quite a few games left in the pipe line for both 3ds and ds , so ya keep that in mind

@mariokart64fan: I think we were specifically talking about Nintendo games. Third party games are necessary for the Wii U to be a success, but none of what you've listed is impressive anyway.. all of those games can currently be played on current systems, who's going to wait another year just to play them on an expensive new system?

I think Nintendo has learned from what happened with the 3DS though, they need to release games to support the system, they can't just expect people to buy it. I'd also hope they've realised how woefully sub-par their online offerings. They desperately need an XBLA/PSN/Steam type system with the support of smaller and indie developers.

I haven't played either Skyward Sword or Xenoblade. And Last story is incoming. And I just got a 3DS. I haven't got enough time to play all this games :-) I wonder how much time people have, several 50+ hours games, and I play maximum 1-2 hours each and every day, maybe a few more hours on friday/saturday/sunday if I'm not doing something else.
