The Big N5 of the Week - We Want U!

Well Nintendo held another Nintendo Direct last week, which makes it the 39th show this year (I kid). A lot of exciting news was showcased, and we FINALLY got the official Wii U price and release date! But that's just only the tip of the iceberg!

5. Wii U games will be $59.99 each.  
Better break open that piggy bank, because Wii U games will be officially $59.99 at release. While that's $10 more than Wii games, hopefully Nintendo won't wait 5 years to introduce a "Nintendo Select" for these games or at least lower the prices.

4. Monster Hunter Tri 3G HD Ver. coming to Wii U! 
It's a surprise in itself that Capcom actually announced something for the Wii U, but even more surprising is that it's getting localized for America and Europe! The 3DS version is also being localized, and both versions will be able to connect and share save data. Tri 3G will be a Wii U launch title for Japan and is scheduled for a Spring release everywhere else.

3. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon headed to the 3DS! 
Mystery Dungeon returns to the 3DS as revealed last week. This time around your default character is Pikachu (as opposed to starting out as a random starter based on your answers to some in-game questions) and you can pick from 5 starter partners +Axew and journey through 3-D environments in the series first new look overhaul. An interesting new feature has you takine AR pics of objects and turning them into dungeons (lucky sweater dungeon Ho!). Watch the trailer and see for yourself!

2. Bayonetta 2 revealed as Wii U exclusive! 
Probably the most surprising news of this week is the unveiling of Bayonetta 2, an Xbox360 hit, being a Wii U exclusive! This has been met with extreme hate comments from previous fans of the first game, but it's worth noting that Nintendo is the only reason this game is being released, since SEGA was going to cancel the series. Better throw Nintendo the bone instead of hitting them with it!

 1. Wii U 
Price: $299.99 
Release: November 18 

Have a great week everyone!
