    The Nintendo Wii is a home video game console released on November 19, 2006.

It became the best selling home console of its respective generation of hardware.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    "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.
