With the Nintendo Switch debuting in just a couple days, it’s time we look back one last time on the Wii U. And what better way to celebrate the console than looking at its obvious missed potential for awesome games that could, and should, have been.
Last week Nintendo dropped a bombshell of information on us, the announcement of the NX’s release date in March 2017 and the delay of the new Zelda game to release on both the Wii U and its successor. While exciting, this news still has Nintendo fans wondering, was the Wii U worth it?
Love ’em or hate ’em, the amiibo have been an unavoidable topic of conversation on gaming articles and their attached comment sections for the past few months. While no direct sales figures are yet public, as someone who works in gaming retail receiving daily phone calls and in store inquiries on what’s in stock and when certain figures are expected to arrive, I can personally affirm that yes, the amiibo hype is real.
