Wii U has been making all the right moves. Nintendo has managed to get its offerings bang on and with its new 3DS console rolling out in February things are expected to get more exciting. At such a time, it may be worthwhile to look at the recently released games and those that are expected to roll out in months to come.

The last quarter of the year and the holiday season has been quite busy for Nintendo and its fans. Nintendo reported a handsome net income, it ranked on top of many annual reports and surveys and there is positive buzz involving its games.

Pokemon Art Academy and Fantasy Life made news in October 2014 and the buzz was followed up in the month of November with Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. December saw the release of Ultimate NES Remix. While these games kept the 3DS platform busy, the Wii U platform wasn’t any quieter.

Just Dance 2015 and Bayonetta 2 launched in October. Bayonetta 2 went on to become the most highly-rated game of 2014. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Super Smash Bros. Bundle and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker released in November and December managed to make Wii U more popular than it already was for a better part of the year.

2015 holds some promise, for Nintendo and for gamers around the world. February is going to see the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the new Nintendo 3DS. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and Pokémon Shuffle are also going to be launched in February. In March, you would have the Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., Fossil Fighters Frontier and Mario Party 10 to liven things up. April will see the launch of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. Splatoon will make a splash on Wii U in May along with Puzzle & Dragons Z | Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition.

Some more games are lined up this year but without any clear date or month. Xenoblade Chronicles X will be launched on Wii U along with Mario Maker and the new The Legend of Zelda game, not particularly in that order for certain.

It is also expected that Nintendo will announce a few exclusive and original titles this year.
