I'm confident that at least one of those 3 titles will be this year and I think Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 may have something to say about ratings.
I'm assuming Yoshi, Mario 3D, Mario Kart etc will all be 2014. I fully expect that this Christmas, ZeldaWW will be the highest rated WiiU title and Nintendo's stop-gap reliance on these titles is a cheap way out. Not that I'm not grateful to be able to play remastered versions of two of my all time faves.
Wii U has no games ...
Interesting lack of Wii U trolls in the thread tonight.
... until later in the year.
I am super pleased Nintendo finally came out to reveal and announce future titles, but it is just that, FUTURE titles; for all we know, the next 3D Mario (cannot wait for this!), Mario Kart, the Legend of Zelda, etc. won't be available until 2014 and beyond.
I kind of like the way the environments look in The Wind Waker HD however, the characters look really off though ... like day-glo plasticine models. Funny how the 3DS has Ocarina of Time and now, the Wii U has The Wind Waker, because they'd likely be the most critically acclaimed games on their respective systems!
I still find it unreal that virtually a full 2 years after release, Zelda OoT is the highest rated 3DS game and there's fuck all other retail games (other than Mario Land) to get any 90%+ critical acclaim. Nothing 3DS wise today either.
Also, with respect to today's event, it was akin to Sony saying "at some undisclosed point in the future there will be GT6, a new Ratchett, Uncharted 4, Killzone 4 and LBP3". In other words, its not really news that there will be a new Zelda, 3D Mario, Mario Kart etc.
It's like they've pre-cum two full years of E3 announcements and I suspect its comparatively poor launch has much to do with today's pre-ejaculate.
3DS is pretty dire, hopefully there will be an interesting Nintendo Direct for it soon.
Retro game, MK and 3D Mario at E3
