Wii U 87

The Wii U will be Getting a “Remastered” game in 2015


The same guy who leaked Devil’s Thrid and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire is at it again. Nico. A has stated on Twitter that the Wii U is getting a big “remastered” game in 2015.


If I can get a correct translation from one of our French-speaking users that would be great.

Thanks to hiddenbytes for the tip!

    What if it's another NES remaster similar to Ducktales? If so I hope it's Bubble Bobble LOL.

  • I think, much like Zelda, it will be a game in a series they are hoping to bring to Wii U, but it will be in some time. So, this game will sort of tie us over. I believe it will be Metroid.

  • Santiago316

    Remastered huh? I wonder what it could be,assuming this turns out to be true. So many games I wouldn't mind seeing remastered.

  • *NormalGamer*

    So the keyword here is 'remaster', I see. Looks like many of you here have listed great canidates of what games should get the 'remaster' treatment like WWHD did. ^_^

  • Hardin25

    Any of the GC Sonic games since I was with him during that era.
    SA2 or Heroes and i'll scream like a 7 year old girl seeing One Direction at a concert and getting an autograph.

    • Wegotexclusives

      The gc sonics games wont be cuz they are already been remastered for the other consoles but i-magine if it was a gc rpg copilation? Drools*

  • Mythosa

    Wouldn't it be cool if it were Shenmu? I know it's not Nintendo, but Sega and Nintendo are quite buddy buddy now. 😀
    I would flip! And so would the rest of the internet, but they would be jealous LOL

    • UncannyOmninaut

      I would love it to be Shenmue if for no other reason than the sweet, nourishing salty tears of enraged fanboys! lol

      Trolling aside I really hope that Bayonetta 2 and Devil's Third aren't just exceptions and Nintendo saves/funds awesome games that would have been cancelled or never been made in the first place without their help. I know that there are a lot of people who would love new Shenmue so it would be definitely cool if Nintendo actually helped make that a reality. But that might be nothing more than a fools hope at this point.

  • UncannyOmninaut

    This might be an unpopular opinion but I really hope that they don't remake any Wii games and that isn't just to avoid the inevitable shit storm that would cause. The reason I don't want any Wii remakes is because the Wii U is backwards compatible, no remakes necessary, unlike other consoles. If you want Wii remakes then play them on the Wii U. Seriously, play your Wii games on the Wii U since the Wii U is a native HD console meaning that it automatically adapts and upscales the Wii games making them look so much better than on the original Wii. You would not believe how much better the SD Wii games looks through the Wii U on a HD tv.

    I find the Majora's Mask remake unlikely if it is for the Wii U for one simple reason: the Zelda Wii U is coming out in 2015. I know that Nintendo has pushed for a larger presence of the Zelda series in recent years due to its popularity but I still can't imagine them having two Zelda games on the same console in the same year. I would be very surprised if that would happen. I do believe we will eventually get a Majora's Mask remake but it will either be on the 3DS or in the first year of their next system.

    Who knows what this remake could be, since it could be almost anything. I hope that it is Eternal Darkness like many others on this comment section, but if I'm to contribute with something other that deserves to be remade I would nominate Baten Kaitos! Monolith soft being a part of Nintendo that would work out well. I kind of hope that both get remade for the Wii U.

    • Mythosa

      I was also thinking Baten Kaitos, but both in one :D. I only got to play the one unfortunately.
      I 100% agree about the idea of leaving Wii games alone since they are fully playable on the system already. It's just the N64 and GC that we are missing out on right now. I WANT!

      • Wegotexclusives

        A GC rpg collection!

  • itsonlyron

    My guess is Super Mario Sunshine remastered. That's just me though.

  • paidenthusiast

    Games I hope get remastered

    Eternal Darkness

    Super Mario Sunshine

    Zack And Wiki

    Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2

    Metroid Prime Trilogy

    Donkey Kong 64

    Wave Race Blue Storm

    F-Zero GX

    Twilight Princess

    Pokemon Snap

    Pokemon Stadium


    Viewtiful Joe 1 & 2

    Skies Of Arcadia

    Phantasy Star 1 & 2 Online

    Turok: Dinosaur Hunter

    Chrono Trigger

    Just to name a few. I hope Nintendo is taking notes

    • Anvard

      Zack and Wiki I would like to see but I suspect it is the most unlikely as it was developed and Published buy Capcom who are still in a precarious position and it is more of a niche game unless Nintendo payed for the whole thing.

  • Guidosaur

    I don't really know about remakes anymore, I guess its cool as long as they switch the game up alot (which they usually do)

  • TheFoxshot

    It's very generic how the person said it, we don't know the system, genre, or how old this game is that is getting a remastered treatment. I would say it can't be a NES/SNES game, nor a Wii game. It has to be either from the N64 library or the GameCube library.

    For N64, I feel it will be TLoZ: Majora's Mask. And for GameCube, it will be Super Mario Sunshine. I'm not saying I'm 100% right on this, but following Nintendo, the game has to either age really badly, or in high demand.

  • nin12Gage

    kirby air ride Eternal Darkness Majora's Mask donkey kong 64 pandora tower pokemon snap urban champion lol golden sun Mario Sunshine f-zero star fox gamecude era or geist

  • hiddenbytes

    I don't know which game it could be. Im sure it's gonna be a first party game. My guess this remastered will be Mario, Xenoblade Chronicles or Metroid. btw. I would kill for a Skies of Arcadia remake/remaster or sequel *,_,*

    Thanks for taking my tip seriosly. Some other sites I sent this tip to didn't. Nicolas who? Who's that? Well, at least until all sites starts to report that. 😉

  • Emufred

    If it's Nintendo 1st party I would like to see a Mother Trilogy HD remake.

    If it's third party, Kingdom Hearts Collection (everything).

    Yeah that's right….

    My stakes are so high you don't even know…

    • eaglebob345

      I want that Kingdom Hearts!!! Why must you get my hopes up?!?!?

  • Kerbizzle

    I think it'd be great to see more N64 remasters.

    I see a lot of good comments here. Personally I wouldn't mind Mario Sunshine because I never got around to playing that one. I just went back to grab all of the green stars/ stamps I was missing in SM3DW and that game is just pure fun

  • JohnnyVirus

    Chrono trigger would be awesome

  • Gryphonofmight

    Eternal Darkness remastering. It will let them keep the trademark….

  • kidking17

    I hope its something unexpected hopefully people won't rage because its a remake.

  • Undead1972

    I'm gonna go with a impossibility and thats one of the greatest rpg's that few ever got to play and thats panzer dragoon saga however the superb shining the holy ark would be much appreciated mmm time for me to wake up and have my coffee and cornflakes

    • FalconLawnch

      That would be seriously amazing. Panzer Dragoon Saga is one of the finest RPGs ever made.

  • I was thinking it might be Skies of Arcadia! Although a lot of people have been asking for Mother etc…

  • FlashTheWolf

    Mario 64! Mario Sunshine! Pokemon Colosseum/XD! Zelda: Majora's Mask! A Sonic game Pre-2006! Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5! Banjo-Kazooie + Tooie! (Highly unlikely, I know.) Super Monkey Ball 1+2! Metroid Prime Trilogy! Billy Hatcher! Final Fantasy 9?


  • I'm saying Majora's Mask in HD on the Wii U in preparation for The Legend of Zelda for Wii U.

  • My problem is, after so many remastered game has come about since this 8th-gen (and especially approximately 1 year old games), I'm starting to wonder myself what kind of game it shall be and how old it is…

    Gamecube online collection would be amazing.

  • hardensoul72

    My vote is for Eternal Darkness, they gotta use that patent they just renewed!!

    • Mythosa

      Love it! thought I was the only one hoping for that. 😀

    • RicardJulianti

      Eternal Darkness remaster……using the Shadow of Eternals code.

      Why do I do this to myself?

      • hardensoul72

        I still have my GameCube disc, might start replaying again soon!!

  • Maestro

    Translation :

    It will be pleasing but it's remastered ! But it's perfect to fill the schedule. Really, 2015 is a game per month for Big N.

    • What Maestro said.

      "It's gonna be sweet but it's remastered! Yet it's perfect to fill in the gaps. Really, 2015 is gonna be one game per month for Nintendo."

      • Mythosa

        French is SO crazy 😛

        • That's what I thought about 'merican English when I first sat foot in the United States. 😀

          • Mythosa

            How about Canadian English? Or French Canadian? Lol

  • Bender Is Great

    I'm gonna go outside the box and ask for Skies of Arcadia Legend Remaster. Or Phantasy Star Online remastered.

    First Party, I can see a Metroid Prime trilogy, Also Wave Race or 1080 snowboarding

    • FrancisPE2

      I'm gonna go outside the box and ask for Skies of Arcadia Legend Remaster. Or Phantasy Star Online remastered.

      —- Oh one can dream….that would just be heavenly….

      • Gryphonofmight

        Sega does have 3 more games coming for Wii U before May 2015 apparently so….

      • RicardJulianti

        Let's get weird with it…

        Geist remaster.

    • nyobee

      Not gonna lie, I want Snowboard Kids or Jet Force Gemini… ok I'm old…. leave me alone lol

  • PrimusOrion

    2015 is shaping up to be the year of Remastered and delayed games from 2014.

    • Kaloi2


  • WSJ4L

    He said something along the lines of "It'll be remastered, but also fun! In 2015, there'll be a game every month for Nintendo."

    Oh, my balls are twitching with excitement. What could it possibly be?

      • WSJ4L


    • DylanWins

      You're about to make a room into a Jackson Pollock painting (if you know what I mean)? *Wink Wink

      • Mythosa

        Ewwww. Keep your bodily fluids to yourself 😛

        • DylanWins


          Sorry, I couldn't help myself saying that. And WSJ4L couldn't he help myself with… Well… You know… His masterpiece.

    • EuroMIX

      Oh, sorry, I do tend to have that effect on people…

  • BarizonKiller

    F-Zero GX HD with online multiplayer?

    • nooblet68

      Indeed. My hopes are up for that. Obviously with a few difficulty tweaks, preferably the AX stuff included from the get go, and hopefully a new cup. I'd get it, just to show my support for F-Zero.

      • BarizonKiller

        I've seen lots of people with the same hope.

    • FalconLawnch

      My vote goes to this one as well.

  • edniceU

    I'm seeing a lack of MAJORA'S MASK!!!!! here.

  • Knightof2012

    Hm….maybe it's the long awaited Majora's Mask? Or possibly a Super Mario 64 HD remake.

  • TerminatorJuice

    I wonder if it will be a 3rd party game or a big first party? I'm betting it's a Super Mario Galaxy 1&2 HD collection.

    • westman98

      SMG 1 and 2 HD would be amazing.

      • erich80

        I would love to get SMG 1 & 2 – simply the best Mario games I've ever played, alongside Super Mario World.

        But if I could bet… My guess this remastered game will be Super Mario 64. It was a breakthrough by that time, and it deserves a new rendition.

        Also, a new generation of gamers would be introduced to that.

        But time will tell.

        • westman98

          Mario 64 was "remastered" for Nintendo DS, but they could do it again for Wii U.

          Or they could just release the game on Virtual console.

          • erich80

            I would go for Mario 64 – not "Super", sorry, my bad – because it was really a game that introduced and defined new boundaries for platformers… That game in HD would be superb.

            And, yes, you're right. They've launched a modified version for the DS, but… A Wii U version would have a great appeal, in my opinion.

            Amend: The actual name for the game is indeed "Super Mario 64". My bad again. I think I need a sabbatical year… :S

          • Mythosa

            I would prefer to see a VC version of Mario 64 and something from GC era remastered.

          • erich80

            So would I.The GCN really had great titles – which I believe will show up eventually, anyway, since we are getting the adaptor for the GCN control.

            But I confess that would be amazing to see all of N64 games with less jags and more textures…

      • Wolfgabe

        Agreed. A Mario Galaxy HD collection is a no brainer

        • SoccerStar9001

          Disagree, Wii U can play Wii games

    • it068

      This OR Metroid Prime Trilogy. Hell, Nintendo, just HDify both and add some nice editions!

  • NGX159 (KhAnime G)

    Remember the ReUmagined rumor from last year, could it possibly become true?

  • Gryphonofmight

    Metroid prime trilogy!

    • JaxonH

      THIS ^^^

    • it068

      I'd play the whole damn thing again for the 6th time if that happened…then probably for another 4-6 times afterwards!

  • Bay2OnWiiU4Life

    I hope it has something to do with Itagaki-san, but I'm keeping my expectations in full check.

  • PrimusOrion

    Bioshock Infinite HD DLC edition. Dark Souls 1 and 2 HD edition. Maybe even GTA V.

    • FrancisPE2

      WTF…lol Why would those games get "Remastered" they would just be ports

  • Shadowkirby12

    I'm cool with this as long as it's not a 1-5 year old game. Gamecube era game or N64 era remaster would be great.

    • Mythosa

      There are so many great games from Gamecube era that I would love to come out. I'm hoping for Eternal Darkness.
