Whether you’re a Wii U, Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL gamer, there are loads of things to look forward to in 2013. Last year there were action, adventure, puzzle and even zombie games to suit every taste. But if you liked some of those, what should you be adding to your shopping list over the next few months?
Here is a look at a few titles which might tickle your fancy if you enjoyed some of the best 2012 releases.
Nintendo Land – The Wonderful 101
Nintendo Land was a fantastic way to introduce gamers to Wii U as it was fun and had an original premise to challenge gamers, set across multiple familiar universes. In The Wonderful 101, you’ll get an equally unique proposition in that you’ll be challenged to train a team of 100 superheroes to save the world from evil.
New Super Mario Bros. U – Rayman Legends
If you love the fast, frenetic platform action of the Super Mario games that were released last year, then look no further than Rayman Legends. Like New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U gamers can play in up to five-player co-operative mode – or play alone using the Wii U GamePad when their main screen is in use.
Mario Tennis Open – Mario Golf World Tour
Mario Tennis Open brought some of our favourite Mushroom Kingdom characters to the stage once more for a little cartoon sports acti0n – and Mario Golf World Tour aims to do the same. Developed by Camelot – the same team that brought Mario Tennis Open to the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL in 2012 – this one looks set to arrive across Europe in summer.
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask – Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies
If you love Professor Layton games you’ll probably already be champing at the bit to get your hands on the reported 500 puzzles of Azran Legacies. As yet, the game has no European release date set and goes on sale in Japan from February 28th. However, as it chronologically completes the ‘double trilogy’ timeline of the other five games, it looks fairly certain we’ll get it before the year is out!
With all the above in mind, it’s a big year for both of Nintendo’s platforms – but is there something else you are eagerly awaiting an announcement on?
