Why not sign up for a (free) account?
Can't wait for Monster Hunters March! Woot!

Gonna be playing on 3DS though, still no Wii U for me... I hope that they launch the CPP XL alongside this game, and ship enough units this time so one can actually buy it.

Some quality releases in there.

Kinda sucks that almost everything I want that has a definite date is coming out during the week I'm on vacation. Also that I'll probably be way behind most of you guys who are playing on Monster Hunter by the time I get back.

As far as retail titles, I don't think I'm getting any. Trying to save money and play the games I already have.

I'll consider getting MH3U for Wii U once it's on sale, if there's still people playing online and there's good buzz about it. I'll also for sure get Rayman Legends for my niece's birthday in April.

Man the Wii U release list is empty. Argh.

@Zero They even announced that Pikmin 3, Game & Wario, Wii Fit U and Wonderful 101 are coming out in Q2 to fill out the press release :p

Very cool to see dates for Wii U games LEGO City Undercover and Rayman Legends. Also, I can't wait for Luigi's Mansion!

Post-launch blues. At least we get a big game in Feb and a big game in March. But hopefully the Q2 games make their ways here fast.

Yeah, unbelievably this is still actually a better lineup than I can remember most consoles getting from January-August or so in the year following a fall launch. It just seems worse because of what the third parties are releasing on the 360/PS3 and could be bringing to Wii U if they wanted to.

Day one for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, both versions.

I'm SO gonna download Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D when it comes out, and Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars when it comes out next week. Those are some quality games, and would be perfect for digital download. I just hope they are priced right.

VERY excited to see Nano Assault EX coming soon, as well as a solid release date for Luigi's Mansion.

And of course I'll be there Day One for Fire Emblem Awakening and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate.

Good times ahead for 3DS...!

Don't bother with Ghost Recon, you will have a superior strategy game in Fire Emblem the week after.

Alien, Lego, Rayman and The Cave could all be pretty awesome. They're not the games I -want-, (gimmah mah Pikmans!) but they're not nothing.

3DS is crushing it.

@anon_mastermind Your logic absolutely boggles my mind.

I say Ghost Recon skews more towards pure strategy than Fire Emblem does. Less reliance on chance. 95% Hit stats that somehow translate to missing 4 times out of 5.

Save for Monster Hunter and Lego City, this list disappoints me.

I actually already own Shadow Wars, but I'm game for getting it digitally, if the price is right. It's one of those games I've played a bit of and enjoyed, but never *think* to put the cartridge in my 3DS. I'd play it far more often if I had it "on tap" and ready to go at all times.

I'll be getting Fire Emblem Awakening as well, so no worries there! I can play both games.

Have you ever thought about buying someone a game as a gift or something instead of buying the same game twice? Wouldn't that money be better spent by giving someone the joy of a new game than saving you the few seconds of changing the cartridge?

Oh, Pikmin 3...you'll be the best game of 2015...

I might get the Lego game, I'll try a Monster Hunter 3 demo if one comes out, and I'm keeping a close eye on The Cave. Maybe Pandora's Tower. Otherwise, I think I'll spend the next couple months seeing what my husband impulse-purchased on Steam all last year.

Demo is the 21st of Feb for MH3.
