If you are a Nintendo Wii U owner, the next several months are going to be packed with numerous new game releases. According to a press release issued by Nintendo of America on Aug. 24, the remainder of the 2015 Wii U software lineup has been revealed, and it provides release dates for several major upcoming Wii U exclusives – such Star Fox Zero.
Things kickoff next month when Super Mario Maker releases on Sept. 11, and continue to be busy with new game releases throughout the remainder of the year. It’s looking like a good time to be a Wii U owner.
Following Super Mario Maker’s release next month, Nintendo looks to pack October with three new game releases and amiibo. Yoshi’s Woolly World will launch on Oct. 16 for $49.99 or come bundled with a Green Yarn Yoshi amiibo for $59.99.
Individual pink and light-blue Yarn Yoshi amiibo will also release on Oct. 16 for $16.99 each. Also releasing on Oct. 16 will be a new New Super Mario Bros. U & New Super Luigi U pack. Both games will be included together and retail for $59.99.
October is the month of Halloween and Nintendo looks to close out the month with some scares. On Oct. 22, Nintendo will release Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, exclusively on the Nintendo eShop for $49.99.
The title will be a free-to-start game – meaning you can download the game and play the prologue, chapter, and most of chapter 2 for free. The full game can then be purchased as DLC from the eShop or via the in-game menu.
Gamers will rendezvous with Fox McCloud this holiday season when Star Fox Zero releases on Wii U. Set to release on Nov. 20 for $59.99, this new Star Fox game is set to be Nintendo’s prime Wii U holiday release.
Co-developed with Platinum games – you may know them from Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101, this new Star Fox will give players chance to pilot new vehicles and battle massive foes.
To conclude the 2015 calendar year, the Wii U will graciously host Xenoblade Chronicles X to a Dec. 4 launch, followed by Devil’s Third on Dec. 11 – both titles will retail for $59.99.
Joining in on the holiday fun will be Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash and Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, which will support its own line of amiibo figures. Both titles are slated for Holiday 2015 and have not yet been given exact release dates.
