Popular titles for the Nintendo Wii

Nintendo games consoles have always had some unique games to offer. When Nintendo has developed their own games, the products have been engaging, satiating and more importantly they have been kids-friendly. The games have less of violence and more of intrigue along with an ability to keep a gamer hooked on for hours. Nintendo games consoles have always been a little soft, rather laidback, with third party games. That is set to change with the Nintendo Wii U. For now, there are some amazing games in the latest offering among Nintendo games consoles. Let us find out how the Nintendo Wii U games are faring in the chockablock gaming world.

The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is one of the more fascinating games on the Wii U platform. Wind Waker is one of those games that have stood the test of time. Its earliest critics had panned the game stating that it is amateurish. Not only was the game too cartoony but the critics inferred that the game was technologically and evolutionarily stunted. Well, those critics may no longer have much significance in the gaming world today and many of the contemporaries of Wind Waker have faded into oblivion while the Legend of Zelda has only grown its fan base. The HD version of Wind Waker on Nintendo Wii U is not just an edited version with some new colors and textures. The HD version is actually more immersive than the preceding formats.

The Pikmin 3 has been receiving very endorsing reviews from most quarters of the gaming world. In its thirteen year old history, never has the Pikmin 3 garnered as much attention as it has with its launch in the Nintendo Wii U. For many gamers, the Mario Bros or the Super Smash Bros evoke a degree of nostalgia that is seldom matched by any other games. Pikmin 3 is right up there and the new version simply takes the whole game to a new level.

Nintendo Wii U’s Mario Kart 8 is another game that cannot be ignored. Mario Kart 8 is a game changer. It is not innovative since it is simply replicating the earlier version with some new spices. But the refurbished look and the new additions make the game a fun ride.

To cap things off, there is Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Super Smash Brothers.
