I am very much looking forward to QUBE, though I suppose I should leave my expectation behind for everyone's sake.

The thread is being fixed, so it's not quite ready yet. This is about a quarter of the list, there are a total of 85 games that need to be added. What I can do is answer any and all your questions about any type of upcoming game.
Laer, I think it is QUBE though I am not quite sure.

If anyone is interested, F1 Race Stars Powered up edition is listed for release next week for US. @WolvenofGames what MMO's are coming to Wii U? Haven't even heard about any MMO coming to the platform.

I must avert my eyes. Too much indie goodness that I can't afford to budget the time or money for.
 
#10
I'm anticipating more indies than retail games.
I'm really looking forward to Telsagrad, Scram Kitty, Shovel Knight, Q.U.B.E and Shantae because those are coming out soon. I'll go into a come over Might Number 9 when it's release draws nearer.

The EA game is a game that they have in development according to Reggie. My opinion is that it is a star wars game due to Disney's and Nintendo's friendship

word. if it's a real game, then i'm reeeeeeally hoping it's a new PGA game. tiger 10 was my favorite game on the wii by a mile. i want to get tiger 12 but it's impossible to find unless you want to buy it online. still pricey, too.

I might need to buy an external HD, huh?

Couldn't hurt. I bought an enclosure almost immediately after I got my Wii U, and with an old HDD from my former gaming PC lying around, it worked out perfectly.
I have it all setup as all VC games, as well as disc-based save files are on the internal memory (then I don't always have to turn on the HDD to play games), while all eShop titles, full digital games are on my HDD.

Wrecking Balls Arena DX is coming to Wii U


This would be a big moment for any up-and-coming developer, and Team Kakumei is wasting no time, as plans to bring its OUYA game Wrecking Balls Arena to the Nintendo system under the name Wrecking Balls Arena DX are already underway. Wrecking Balls Arena DX is no mere port however, it is a sequel/expansion to the original and will feature new stages, items and gameplay elements, whilst still retaining its previous hand-drawn style and charm. The game will be coming to the OUYA as well as the Wii U, possibly sometime in 2014, but the team is toying around with the Wii U’s unique capabilities in order to get the most out of the GamePad.

That is an excellent list of games. I just went through every game on the eShop for both WiiU and 3DS the other night, noted the ones I liked, searched multiple sites for reviews and videos, then added the ones that made the cut to my "Wish List" (which is a nice feature on the eShop). Now, I'll buy one or two at a time as a treat to myself. As well as continuing to add more to the Wish List as they are released. I've been really impressed with the Indie games I've played on the WiiU so far, and the upcoming lineup seems to continue that tradition.

*Note to self - get through backlog ASAP*
 
#17
I noticed that there are some indie games listed for Wii U on indiedb that nobody is talking about yet. Should those be added to the list? If so I will post the links.

Shovel knight is due in march, Yachtclub says. Also, new trailer.. Dat (trailer) music.. Dat gameplay. This game will be fantastic.

Wales Interactive (Gravity Badgers, Master Reboot) had a conversation with NintendoLife and revealed that they are working on a 3D Sci-fi game called Infinity Runner and a Master Reboot sequel coming to Wii U later this year. Gravity Badgers has been given a release window of febuary and Master Reboot should follow the month after. Also: Star Beast (which once was a Wii exclusive, that has been redone for Wii U) will be revealed soon.Here's a teaser pic: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BeoyAfICcAEdhvx.jpg:large
 
#27
@MrValtor thank you so much for all your contributions :) hmmm how does Starbeast play?
You're welcome ! :D Star Beast is supposed to be a 2.5D space shooter. Also: ReVen has made it's way to kickstarter and needs 18.000$ to reach it's goal. As of now they have 3.076$ and still have 28 days to go. The main goal even includes a Wii U version, so no need to worry about the stretch goal for this one ;D

Sorry for the double post, but I just wanted to update this thread a little bit. I have been watching indiedb for the last few days and I have seen two more games that sparked my interest. 1. Lucadian Chronicles which is an online card battle game 2. The Dance of the Damned which is a fantasy adventure. Zoink Games (The makers of The Kore Gang and the recently released Stick it to the man) have teased a Wii U announcement. Lastly one of the devs behind Star Beast is posting daily updates leading up to the full reveal of the project. To get all the latest news about Star Beast follow @ravsters on twitter.

If I wasn't so broke I would pledge for this game. Looks really cool but it isn't even close to being funded. Still 40 days left though.

Yeah, they are actually doing much better than I expected. I thought this would be on of those kickstarters that get funded in the very last second. I'm guessing the thirsty Metroid community is heavily backing it. :D

Jesus, that OP list! Anybody heard updates on the 90's racer?

There's this environment trailer from two months ago. That's the most recent video I've seen of it, and judging from what the trailer it looks quite good.

Nicalis posted an update on their blog along with this picture:

Lol, I swear I'm on a roll with this stuff. I was right way in advance about Iwata's vision for the future with more lifestyle devices and my asking about this game yields a blog. Anyway, enough self-masturbation, I love the way this game is turning out! It looks like everything I loved about Sega back in the day. Great stuff and I can't wait to play. Day One!

Quickly, ask about a new Metroid game!
Also this thread has inspired a feature coming to the front page of the site. Of course, we'll give credit where credit is due.

Hey, does anyone know the name of the game that is being developed by a small Australian developer that is in the same style as Smash TV?

Not sure if that's in the list but I thought the game looked awesome.
 
#47
Majority of the games I want, are all in the same time period of Q1 2014. So I hope there will be some nice spacing between them. Been excited for a number of these since they were shown in August (?) of last year.

No, actually I was thinking of Assault Android Cactus. I thought that was coming to the Wii U,no?
I can testify that this is coming to Wii U. Looks like a magnificent Twin Stick Shooter.
