Yoshi’s Woolly World was the most popular Wii U game. It had a 91% anticipation level. It would have been interesting to see where Star Fox Zero would have been had it not been delayed until 2016.
In the 3DS category, many people wanted Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden. There is new interest in Dragon Ball thanks to the recent movies plus the Super TV series too.
