Nintendo Has Another Wii U Remaster In The Works, According To Source

Wii U

In the modern age of gaming, remasters of games seem to be becoming more prevalent in the industry. Most recently, we saw The Last of Us Remastered, even as a game that just released last year, and it has been selling extremely well in the short time. On the Nintendo side of things, we got The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD last year and now it appears Nintendo may have another remaster up their sleeve.

This is just a rumor for now, but it comes from the source that “predicted” both The Devil’s Third being a Wii U exclusive and Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, though the latter was an almost sure thing regardless. The translation of the Twitter post by NicoWav says:

  • “You’re gonna love it, but it’s a Remaster. It’s perfect to fill gaps in the line-up. Really, Big N [Nintendo] will have one game per month in 2015.”

Many expected Nintendo to announce some sort of HD remaster during E3, specifically one for Super Mario Galaxy or even a bundle of the two in HD form. However, that came and passed without any announcements. It doesn’t have to just be Wii games either, as many on NeoGAF have speculated games such as Super Mario Sunshine, but perhaps the most popular one besides Super Mario Galaxy was Xenoblade Chronicles. The very rare Wii game would make sense, especially with Xenoblade Chronicles X coming to the Wii U next year sometime.

If you could see the remaster of any Nintendo game on the Wii U, what would it be?
