Lost Planet 3 may be coming to Wii U

A scan from the upcoming issue of GameInformer shows Lost Planet 3 set for Wii U release on a game preview. Capcom have yet to comment on this.

A (fake) screenshot of Metroid Prime 4 on Wii U?

We’re a mere 15 hours away from Nintendo’s press conference, and the above, purportedly leaked image of Metroid Prime 4 running on the Wii U has popped up on NeoGAF. Fake or not? I’m leaning towards fake, personally – it looks like a slightly modified version of the Metroid Prime Trilogy start screen, and the [...]

Rumour: Wii U has an achievement system

An anonymous developer revealed that the Wii U features a console-wide achievement system. This system is said to have a “Nintendo-spin” on it that “tracks gamer-time, scores and more.” As with all stories sourced from anonymous developers refusing to name themselves, take it with a healthy dose of salt. Nintendo have not exactly had the [...]

Leaked final design of Wii U controller

A leaked image of a newly designed Wii U controller has been released. It is unknown at the present time if the source is legitimate, but it seems to be real. Notable changes are the new analog sticks, previously analog nubs, which have been moved diagonally from the D-pad and directional buttons. Also, a slew of ports [...]

70 Wii U games in development and other E3 2012 rumours

Forget The Box, from whom we’ve heard that the Wii U might feature eReader-like capabilities and that Nintendo are working on at least three new franchises for the console, have another batch of Wii U rumours for us, this time regarding what we can expect to see of the console at E3 2012. According to their [...]

Rumour: Nintendo working on three new franchises for the Wii U?

A rumour sprung up that Nintendo have at least three brand-new franchises in development for the Wii U, by a number of different studios. As great as Nintendo’s tried-and-true properties like Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Kirby are, they do receive quite a bit of flack for constantly “rehashing” their games from year to year. [...]

Rumour: Lady Gaga: The Experience in development for Wii U?

Gaming blog Dual Pixels has received word that Ubisoft are currently working on a new entry in the The Experience series starring Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga: The Experience is allegedly in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, and PlayStation Vita; and was scheduled for an E3 2012 reveal. The past two games in [...]

Rumour: UK racing studio commits to annual Wii U projects

There’s a rumour floating around claiming that “a prominent UK racing studio has committed to support Wii U with one project each year.” Who this developer may be is anyone’s guess, but current speculation indicates Sumo Digital (F1 2011, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing) and Codemasters (DiRT, Race Driver) as possibilities. A DiRT game was announced for the [...]

Wii U to be twice as powerful as Xbox 360?

On the heels of IGN’s leaked Wii U and Xbox 720 relative power levels, the publication Develop revealed an alleged leak of their own. Their source claims that the Wii U is twice as powerful as the Xbox 360, when both general processing and graphics rendering capabilities are taken into account. This figure seems noticeably [...]

Nintendo to rename the Wii U?

CVG have caught wind of a rather interesting rumour – and one that I personally hope is true. “Serious discussions” are apparently being held between Nintendo’s higher-ups over the Wii U’s name, debating whether it will be strong enough to differentiate the console from its predecessor. I don’t think anyone can blame Nintendo for wanting [...]
