What to Expect on Nintendo Platforms in 2015

Take a look at all the games we can expect to see hit Nintendo platforms throughout the year.

You may not know it, but Nintendo fans have a lot to look forward to in 2015. There are a number of high profile titles coming to the Wii U this year, the 3DS has even more, and we will see an updated version of the Nintendo 3DS along with other Nintendo hardware. On top of that, we will be buried under a mountain of new Amiibo.

The aim of this Feature is to inform you of all the major games we expect to see coming to Nintendo platforms this year. For simplicity's sake, we have broken the Feature up into multiple sections which you can see under the table of contents located on the right hand side of your screen.

Are you excited about Nintendo's 2015 lineup? Let us hear what you think in the comments section below!

Why are your news stories so short?  I know you can only report on info you have, but man, there is no substance to any of these articles.

This is a massive 10 page Feature. The first page is a short intro created to describe the Feature in its entirety before going more in depth. Please use the table of contents on the right hand side of the page to navigate the different pages and to see the real meat of this particular article.

I hope that helps. :)

This is a ten page feature, so I think there's at least a certain degree of substance to it.

Forgot Steamworld Heist was coming.  That looks interesting.  I really need to get there first Steamworld game which is tower defense and looks interesting.

Technically Star Fox has a Release Date of Before Zelda.  I'm looking forward to being able to actually play Xenoblade.

First of all you missed Metroid Prime Trilogy out tomorrow on Wii U.


Second, this never dawned on me. When I saw the Fire Emblem Amiibo integration with Codename: S.T.E.A.M. during the Nintendo Direct I just assumed that meant that Ike, Robin, and Lucina Amiibo would release by March 13th at the latest, but this makes it sound like Robin and Lucina aren't very likely to come by then. I was going to skip Ike and grab Robin and Lucina (I loved Awakening, but I've never played any of the other FE games so I have no emotional attachment to Ike or Marth) Now I'm wondering if I need to try and find Marth and Ike so I can enjoy the Amiibo side of Codename: STEAM

Just to clarify things, we did not include Virtual Console titles on this list. While the Wii Download games on Wii U are technically not called Virtual Console, they are in a sense. It's for that reason they did not make the list.

As far as release dates go, they are only shown on this Feature if the exact month of the release is known (at a minimum). Anything else I felt had a higher chance of slipping out of its "Release Window" so it doesn't have a release date listed.

Please Understand!

This is gonna be a good year, even if Zelda falls into 2016. There are six full priced retail games that I plan on buying on that list. Nine if Star Fox and Project Giant Robot/Guard are good and separate games. Ten if I cave and don't wait for a sale or price drop for Kirby Rainbow Curse.

I'd also like to purchase Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Captain Toad at some point.

Maybe I'll hold off til 2016 on that PS4 purchase.

I don't expect all of this stuff to release in 2015, but it's a nice summation anyway.
