I have sworn off JRPGs as I always run out of steam and never can finish them anymore. So, I have no interest in this. But, it certainly does look beautiful.

I can't wait. 

I just hope there is a solid story and good combat mechanics.  They certainly have nailed the graphics but that won't satisfy me for hours of gaming.

Ni No Kuni was probably the best looking game I have played in years but the mechanics were so terrible I quit.

Just when I thought I never needed a Wii U...

Wow that looks fantastic, but boy those 3 sure do a lot of running.  I felt tired for them just watching.

Isn't there another Wii U exclusive that was supposed to be really good?  Was it Bayonetta 2?

Yep, also, Wonderful 101 from the same developer.  ZombiU is another exclusive that is worth a look.  Itís FPS Dark Souls with zombies and a really good use of the WiiPad.

And donít forget all the first party Nintendo properties...

Did you know that if you buy Bayonetta 2 it comes with Bayonetta 1?  So there are two games right there.  I actually just bought WiiU and Bayonetta 2.  Will keep an eye on this game as well.

I bought the Wii U in anticipation of Bayonetta 2. There ARE other great games for it, and aside from Xenoblade Chronicles X, the open world Zelda game is coming too.

In other words, resistance if futile. slywink

If you like fun, the Wii U has a great library.  Here are a few classics that I've played since I bought mine a little over a year ago:
Super Mario 3D World
Mario Kart 8
Pikmin 3
Bayonetta 2 (and 1)
Wind Waker (first LoZ game I've ever completed)
Rayman Legends (Wii U version is actually the best version)
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

And for 2015 I'm looking forward to:
Splatoon
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Zelda

Lego City Undercover. is worth half the price of the machine.  Throw in the others that Roguetad listed and it is a very good gaming machine.  There are times I don't play it for a few weeks at a time but it is a machine I can always come back to.

Xenoblade Chronicles X
Zelda

That's my biggest hesitation on the WiiU.  First party Nintendo titles (namely anything with Zelda or Mario in the name) don't interest me at all, and the pickings start to get really slim once those are removed.  I'm sure I'll probably take the plunge eventually, but there's certainly no hurry.  Hell, I've ended up with both a Gamecube and a Wii along the line, so this one probably won't be any different.  I'm happy to wait until Xenoblade hits.

Does the Wii have any sort of backwards compatibility with Wii games?  I actually wouldn't mind giving the original Xenoblade another look, and I never did give Last Story a fair shake.

EDIT:  Scratch that.  Looks like the original Xenoblade is nearly impossible to find anymore outside of E-bay (at around $75).  I'll just wait.  smile

Yes, complete backwards compatibility from what I recall.

For the record: yes, the Wii U is 100% backwards compatible with the original Wii, including all of the controllers and peripherals.

And if you think about it, at some point you're going to need a Wii U for the gratchlings to play anyway.  They're going to love games like Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Mario Party, and Splatoon!

Now that Nintendo is releasing Wii games for download on the WiiU, I'd be very surprised if they don't make Xenoblade available.

The portable remake of Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the flagship releases for the New 3DS, taking advantage of the increased processor speed and extra analog input.  It would be surprising if Nintendo undercut their release by making the original available digitally.

Of course, it's surprising that Nintendo didn't integrate Dolphin-like upscaling and anti-aliasing for Wii games running on the Wii U, or produce enough Amiibos to profit from all the demand.  So who knows how they make their decisions?
