    Bayonetta is so ,,,tacky.

    ( oh downvotes, good job.You know rather then be a pansy maybe try arguing it!Oh wait, you cant -_-)

    • Zackasaur

      Yeah, I couldn’t possibly hate it more. :/

      X and SMT X FE both sounds fun to me, though!

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        X Looks amazing! I cant wait to see more :D

    • MogCakes

      Most people know arguing with you about something this subjective is pointless. They still disagree with your opinion however, so they downvote you instead. You should also complain about the upvotes you get, those people are pansies for not voicing their agreement! :p

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        But the view they agree with has already been voiced, the disagreement has not.

      • HeatPhoenix

        Upvote/downvote system is a piece of crap, I agree entirely.

  • AnimusVox

    Didn’t Pikman 3 just come out? Or is this just one of those ‘this is what we got so far’ kind of deals?

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I’m not sure what you’re asking.

      The clip shows already release + upcoming games.

      • AnimusVox

        Yeah that answered my question. Sorry I phrased that wrong.

  • Willgaea

    Monolith’s X is a game I’d buy even though I don’t own a wii.

    • Josephl64

      good…because you need a Wii U

  • Karl Josef

    WAT? pegi 18? it’s only Wii U games

    • fixmanfoxman

      bayonetta is rated pegi 18

    • Karysonson

      …………What do you mean by “only Wii U games” ?

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        Ninty usually doesn’t make stuff that isn’t for everyone.

        But yeah, Bayonetta 2’s in there. Thus the 18 rating.

        • Karysonson

          But a game not made by a Nintendo studio shouldnt be included in that trope

          • RazzFox

            why its a trailer of wiiu exclusives

  • King-Podigy-X

    Nintendo feels left out between the PS4 vs. Xbox One war. LOL!!!

    • RazzFox

      yer screw them for trying to sell their console

    • Aiddon

      well considering how incestuous and increasingly desperate that war is going to get…

    • Johnny Luigi

      Nintendo has already launched their console. They’re in a different position than the other two consoles.

  • Pyrofrost

    I already have Zelda and Bayo2 taken care of.

    All I care about at this point are the MonolithSoft games on Wii-U and 3DS.
    SMTxFE and any other games Atlus is doing for Nintendo.

    And the next Mistwalker game, I was kinda hoping to see The Last Story become a franchise; however, they need to add a bit more length.
    I also wouldn’t mind if they did something along the likes of what Lost Odyssey had going. I absolutely loved that game. :3

  • Claude

    Monolith’s X in there makes me feel good. Non-Square RPGs getting some publicity is a plus in my book.

    Too much Mario in this video. Also, X is not Xenoblade 2, and that makes me happy.

  • Ronaconda

    X alone might give me reason to get a WiiU.

    • http://insanechronos.tumblr.com/ InsaneChronos

      X is the only reason to get a WiiU.

  • Aiddon

    and this is why Nintendo worries me the least out of all the major console manufacturers

  • Robbyfishersora

    MonolithSoft X look great I might get a wii U for it. I’ll be lying to myself if I said it didn’t look great.

  • Rogerio Ap Silva de Andrade

    I just hope that Bayonetta and X come next year…. before the 1st half of the year ends.
