Most of the Next Gen console reveals are done, and it's a pretty impressive lineup, with the Frostbite 3 engine making a strong showing.

Nintendo's Wii U of course isn't being supported by a lot of the next gen games however, leading many people to foretell its demise. The Wii U still has a few tricks up its sleeve though, so lets look at the games we'll be seeing for it...

Take a look at the Third Party line up:

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
Batman: Arkham Origins
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut
Disney Infinity
Just Dance 2014
Rayman Legends
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure (Wii U & 3DS)
Disney’s PlanesShin Megami Tensei IV (3ds)
Skylanders
Swap Force
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Sonic Lost World (Wii U & 3DS)
Watch Dogs

 

A very solid third party lineup, a lot of which can be laid at Ubisoft's feet; one of the few publishers who is still supporting the Wii U and bringing strong titles like Assassins Creed and Watch Dogs. Nintendo of course have announced some of their own titles for the Wii U; this year we'll be seeing:

Wii Party U
Super Mario 3D World
The Wonderful 101
Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze
The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
Pikmin 3

 

Next year sees even more strong Nintendo titles, such as:

Super Smash Bros.
Wii Fit U
Mario Kart 8
Bayonetta 2
"X"

 

Not to mention another Zelda title which is in the works. So, are reports of the Wii U's demise greatly exaggerated? Or is this all too little, too late for the console? Tell us what you think below!

Super Smash Bros alone could save the console. Heck, if what I've heard about Zelda Wii U is true (if you didn't know, they AlMOST showed something at e3 about it; it's farther along in development than we think), then this console will be saved from the early grave.
