Rayman Legends is a wormhole, whisking Wii U owners back to November 2012 and a time when Wii U: The Incredible Promise had yet to make way for Wii U: The One Third Parties Don’t Like Any More.

The big question: Has Wii U really suffered from a lack of games?

As a long-time Nintendo gamer I am confused. No, not by where to find all the star coins in New Super Luigi U but by how every time I read an article about the Wii U online, its struggle for success is put down to its lack of games. Even Satoru Iwata said it himself.

Super Mario 3D World preview Gameplay Preview

Super Mario 3D World is the much anticipated 3D Mario for Wii U. Production is being handled by Tokyo EAD, the visionary team behind Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D Land. And if the initial internet reaction is anything to go by, it is, to quote Obi-Wan, not the 3D Mario you are looking for.

Mario Kart 8 review

Mario Kart 8 is the first Wii U game. Before you swing violently around to look, aghast, at your last 18 copies of ONM, wondering what twisted hell-verse they sprung from, we mean to say that it’s the first of Nintendo’s next generation that feels as though it needed the new console, and the new outlook that’s come with it, to exist.

Rewind: Donkey Kong Country

Michael Gapper remembers the day the SNES should have died and the 16-bit game that took on a 32-bit console.
