Re: Wii U Collector's Thread

ugh, I ended up getting rid of Axiom Verge when I was needing some game $. Now I'm regretting that one.

I have acquired some other Wii U games since, so I'll have to update when I have time. I've been having a blast exploring 1700's Boston in Assassin's Creed III for the past week, though.

Not sure fhis is accurate?

We got Project Zero 5 (Fatal Frame) and Fast Racing Neo off the top of my head. I'm sure there are others too.

The last system I collected for - Duck Tales physical version was one of my last purchases before BotW as the swan song. Super Luigi U in the green case was another I made sure to get that was first party. Star fox zero just tanked, one of the few first parties to just have the price drop out .

Star Fox Guard is good though. The best thing to come out of Star Fox Zero's release.

So my current Wii U stack:
Mario 3D World
Tank Tank Tank
Smash Bros
Star Fox Guard
Wii Fit U (Yes I have this; it's not quite as good as the original)
Zelda BotW
New Super Mario U & Luigi U combo
Mario Kart 8
Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival (got the amiibo bundle w/game for $3 new; not a difficult board game but it's not bad if you're an AC fan)
Hyrule Warriors

Besides Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, I am struggling to come up with any other physical releases I want to add to the collection. There are some games I wouldn't mind playing again (ZombiU) or trying out (Need for Speed, Mario Party 10), but I'm satisfied with what I have unless I find some bargains. The Zelda HD games I don't need as I have them on the original systems (plus they ruined Windwaker's graphics, imo). Splatoon would be cool to have again but the online will close eventually (if it hasn't already) so it- along with many other online-centric titles - would be a waste of money.

I think I will grab the Mario Kart 8 DLC because it would be cheaper to download that instead of purchasing the game again on Switch.

There is a new game releasing for the Wii U, it's limited to a 2000 copy release available only in the PAL region. Apparently it has been released on the Wii U's eshop, though it is supposedly a lesser version? I think the disc contains more content.

I have the eShop version. It’s an OK Metroidvania sequel to a pretty amazing point and click adventure game. That said, if we got a physical release for the Wii U in NA, I would buy it in a heartbeat. :lol:

Of the two recent Wii U physical releases in Europe, I think Shmup Collection is the more interesting. It has some games on it that are not otherwise available for the Wii U in the eShop and, in fact, only recently launched on the Switch.

I second this. I almost bought it before realizing that it's not NA compatible...

by Syndicate Thu May 28, 2020 9:22 am's really nice to see people still into the Wii U. Personally I thought it was a great system w/more than enough great games to justify picking one up new.

  2. The Wonderful 101
  3. Super Mario 3D World
  4. Mario Kart 8
  5. Rayman Legends
  6. Ducktales: Remastered
  7. Bayonetta 2 (w/the original Bayonetta)
  8. NES Remix Pack
  9. Yoshi's Wooly World
  10. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
  11. Hyrule Warriors
  12. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
